    Notes 

    • (1) Elizabeth Ann Grubb:

      NOTES:

      "Cecil" as she was known by James GILCHRIST's family, had been reported in family stories, as the daughter of Theresa MILLER and a
      first husband. Documents showing Theresa's name at the time of her marriage to James GILCHRIST, as well as the 1900 Census which shows Theresa's parents' name as "MILLER", indicate that Theresa was either unmarried at the time of Cecile's birth or that Theresa had divorced her first husband and resumed the use of her maiden name.

      Compiler had hoped that the identity of Cecile's natural father might be given on her death certificate; however, the father's name is given as "James K. GILCHRIST" there. On both the 1900 and 1910 census (the latter after James GILCHRIST's death) Cecile's surname is given
      as "GILCHRIST." As of Oct. 1995, compiler has not found evidence that she was legally adopted by James; nevertheless, she was born some 3 years before her mother married him.

      Family stories report that Cecile married Ernest PAINTER, whose father, Howard PAINTER, married the widow of James K. GILCHRIST in 1907. Documentation of this marriage has not been located as of Dec. 1997, however, death certificate reads "Cecile D. PAINTER" as does the cemetery record. The place of marriage is assumed to have been Muskingum Co., OH; the time of her marriage would have been sometime after 1910.

      The death certificate contains the following data in addition to that given above:

      Place of residence: 3365 Dresden Road; Rural Falls Twp.

      Deceased is a widow; her age at the time of death was given as 72 years, 7 months and 4 days. The deceased husband's name is not
      given.

      The informant for the death certificate was "Mrs. John SPEER" (Cecile's daughter, Louise). Mrs. SPEER's residence was given as
      "Zanesville, O."

      The cause of death is given above, however "conditions which gave rise to (the cause)" specifies "Chronic Myocarditis." Cecile died at
      Good Samaritan Hospital in Zanesville, but per the death certificate, she had been there only 1 hour and 20 minutes before her death. Time of death is given as "3:40 A." The physician attending was Stanford S. DAW, M.D., who reported that Cecile had been his patient since 1957.

      The funeral director was given as Harold N. BAUGHMAN, Baughman and Sons Funeral Home, "Corner of Basin and Third Sts., Frazeysburg," (Muskingum) OHIO.

      Per efforts of compiler's brother, Jim GILCHRIST, to contact surviving members of the GILCHRIST or PAINTER families in Zanesville, compiler was able to submit a query to the Euclid Avenue United Methodist Church there. Response from Cindy BUCK, the church secretary, included the following information about Cecile (GILCHRIST) PAINTER:

      "his (James K. GILCHRIST) daughter, Cecile GILCHRIST married Ernest PAINTER; lived next door to the Westview Grill on Dresden Road
      Ernest PAINTER died during WWII just before Christmas, he worked at Armco Steel and fell into a vat of molten metal

      Their daughter, Louise PAINTER married R.J. SPEAR; very active in the church; played the piano for the Sunday School and maybe for church before she was married..."

      Ms. BUCK cites church records and Paul BOWERS, 617 Military Road, Zanesville, OH 43701-1532, as the sources of her information.

      In December, 1997, Mary Alice GILCHRIST, daughter of Byron B. GILCHRIST, wrote of her recollections of Cecile and her brother, Clyde:

      "...The house on Dresden Road was a square type with an upstairs. It sat on a high bank as I remember many steep steps down to the Street. By car we drove around to the back to go into the house on level ground. I don't think they used the front steps much.

      ...BG (Byron Gilchrist) says that Cecile was 'a real looker' in her younger days. I remember her as somewhat tall (5'5 or 5'6) with dark hair and color, rather like a true brunette, probably. She seemed to me to have a good figure for her age. She certainly did not look like Clyde!

      ...Cecile and Clyde did not resemble each other in appearance in anyway, but they shared the same house on Dresden Road as long as they lived as far as I know..."
