      In the beginning the Gilkisons migrated from Scotland to the north of Ireland. From there two brothers came to America and landed at North Carolina. One of these brothers afterwards settled in Virginia and one [James Gilkison] in Greenup County, Kentucky. He had three sons named Jonathon, James, John. . . .

      The three Gilkison boys settled in Ohio. After a while Jonathon settled in Illinois at Mt. Carmel and James later at Centreville, Michigan. James was justice of peace in Mansfield for over thirty years and resigned to move to Michigan.
