Re: Gordon, Gilchrist

In Reply to: Gordon, Gilgrest by Linda Benson Cox of 504

Thomas ‘Jefferson’ Gordon (known as T. Jefferson Gordon or Jefferson Gordon) born 1822 in Knox, Waldo County, Maine and died about 1908 at about age 86 years, just a few months before his daughter Nettie Gordon Rock’s death (she died August 05, 1908 in Troy Township, Pipestone County, Minnesota); Jefferson died in Garretson, Minnehaha County, South Dakota (Garretson is just across the state line from Pipestone County, Minnesota).

Jefferson married first Adeline Gilchrist who was born September 28, 1826 (probably Knox, Waldo County, Maine) and died October 21, 1872 in Osseo, Trempealeau County, Wisconsin at age 46 years and 23 days and is buried in the South Valley Cemetery, Sumner, and Trempealeau County, Wisconsin - just a year after Samuel W. Cox (the first husband of his second wife) died.

Jefferson Gordon married Adeline about April 26, 1845 in Knox, Waldo County, Maine when he was age 23 years and she was age 19 years. They had 9 children.

Jefferson married second Catherine E. Fort Cox on October 02, 1874 in Trempealeau County, Wisconsin when she was 30 and he was 52 years of age. They had 1 child.

Catherine E. Fort was born about 1844 in New York and died about March 02, 1917 at about age 73 years in Winona, Winona County, Minnesota it is thought – Catherine had married first Samuel W. Cox born June 05, 1842 in Seaton, Rutlandshire, England - married December 19, 1870 in Trempealeau County, Wisconsin, about five years after the Civil War, which Samuel had served in; the young couple moved to to Sumner, Trempealeau County. Samuel, Catherine and son Francis were in the 1870 Census in Sumner, Francis having just been born. Catherine later homesteaded the land in 1875, after Samuel W. had died in 1871 at age 28 years – (so they were only married for about one year). Catherine must have been pregnant with son Samuel Lewis when Samuel W. died April 23, 1871 in Osseo, Trempealeau County, Wisconsin, as Samuel Lewis was born 1871.
