Ok so where do I begin- Firsts thing first. No Harm but if we are going to keep open lines of communications though the Message Boards we need to respond to the message so everyone can get the question or answers to the message you ask. Sorry.
My Name Is Pat Sparling. I am the GGgrandson of Josephine Triphosa Gillingham. She married Isaac Sparling on Jan 1 1859 in Barre Wisconsin. All right before the people from Yeamans side start getting excited let me explain. Josephine was the daughter of Madison Gillingham and Emily Jacobs, they resided in NH. At the time of this change. Emily's father moved to Wisconsin for some strange reason at the age of 60+ years, this is a whole other story, but through him I have traced his and my family back to the year 0080AD. When he moved here he asked his granddaughter to come keep house for him. So now we have the other Gillingham family in Wisconsin. If you are from Gillingham Wisconsin, you know where the Lacrosse area is. This is where Josephine moved to.
As I began thinking after my posting to Sian, If what Sian mentioned that Yeamans changed his name, which must have been pretty radical at that time period, could he have been a relative of William's?
If so- now this purely speculation, was he a brother? A son?
Some of you will write me with the correct information. I have, and I am sorry, not read anything on Yeamans, I passed him like a bad cousin, and no pun intended. I didn’t look at the factual information and try to piece it together. SORRY. I now am getting a better understanding, after doing genealogy for close to 25 yrs, to stand back and start digging into the rose's, instead of smelling the rose's of my success, of finding a few names.
As I mentioned I am looking for information on William Gillingham, maybe by looking at him, an Unknown Gillingham we can piece this information together on our mutual families.
If you would like a copy of the GEDCOM file I have on the Gillingham's from William on down, please respond to this posting, not to my e-mail Address, so we can keep this information flowing.

I was very interested in your message to Sian, I also correspond with her. I had an article in her last newletter. I am a Yeamans' decendant, he being my 6th GG Grandfather.
Two things interested me. One what is the earliest a Gillingham came to America from the William Gillingham tree??
I have a large Gillingham file of the Yeamans tree. (Prints out 275 pages). I would like to get a GEDCOM of your file in the hopes someday that we tie them together in England.
