I am a rather inconsistant genealogist but keep coming back. I posted a couple of messages with Barbara Rinaldi in 2001 when she was in Florida and without her genealogical papers. So I'll reiterate some of what little I have:
I'm the ggrandson of James McDowell Gillespie b July 19, 1862
d. 1942. he marr Sarah Elizabeth Nottingham b December 13, 1868 d September 18, 1898 both are buried in Harmony Cem Jefferson Twp Grant Co. IN[it is just o/s of Matthews]
James M. Gillespie's father was William Gillespie b October 02, 1831 d October 04, 1914 marr [in March 27, 1859 reportedly in Blackford, Indiana to one] Rebecca Balsley b 1832 d 1883.
William Gillespie's father is reported to be James Gillespie who is said to have been born in either 1798 or '99 in Virginia. Some sources indicate his wife's name was Mary Bosley b April 09, 1801 in Virginia & d 1871 in Grant County IN.
Do any of these names and dates fit with what you have on the Gillespies? I have a little on the Balsleys but it gives out in a couple of "shakey" generations.
