Hello Tricia. I am sorry to say that I do not have much informaton on the Gillett family. Steve and Laura (Snell) Gillett should have been included in J. McAffee's history on the Snell family, but somehow he missed her. I was surprised, because he had done extensive research on the Snells. All I really know is Steve Gillett married Laura Snell, sister to Harve and James Snell. Steve and Laura had several children, one was Etta May, who married Frank Fox. Dora Gascock, who is Harve and Elsie Snell daughter, might know more. I believe Frank and Elsie Snell have one son still living and the only name I have for him is Junior. He was living in Quincy, Illinois the last I heard.He might be able to help with the Gilletts. Dora lives in Oakwood, division, Hannibal, Mo. She is about 92, but very sharp.Another lady, in Hannibal, is Mattie Steel. She might know more too. Dora told me that Steve and Laura had the following children, Clarence, Etta May, Mabel(Married Chester Bittel, divorced, then she married Tom McCleary) I think, and another son Andrew Gillett.I did e-mail J. McAffee, but he has not answered yet. I only remember my Mother talking about her Aunt Laurie a lot when I was young. The Fox family lived in Saverton, Mo. almost all thier lives.I would think that the Gillett family would be found on the old early 1900 census records of Ralls County either Saverton townhip, or Saltriver Township, and possibly earlier than that.. These are on microfilm at the Hannibal Library.I just have not been able to get down there to search.If I do, I will let you know what I find. Please use my E-Mail address ggolanwebtv.net and if you could send me yours it would be great. Please let me know what you have, if you would care to share information. I am 69 and need to get this all together. who knows what tomorrow will bring? Ha! Georgia.
