Note: Gilmore also spelled "Gillmere" Shows up at Liscolgat as a farmer in Bassetts County Armagh 1888 In conversation with Eilie McBRIDE - One or two of his brothers endedup in New Orleans. After he died, his son-in-law Tom BARTLEYaccompanied him to New Orleans. They sailed on a boat captained byCpt. Parry, but there was yellow fever when they got there, so theydecided not to disembark. As a consequence, the estate was claimed bythe government. There may be a connetcion with the HADRA family of NewOrleans - a marriage connection? The only HADRA I have been able tofind was an Edward HADRA, a recruit of Louisiana who was dishacrgedMay 6, 1863 with a disability from Company K of the 24th Ill Infantry. Tom McNEIL adds: The scrap of paper which revealed Esther also statedthat David had left money to Eliezer. Presumably this was the legacythat Eliza JACKSON referred to in her letters. There was also a notesaying that George "did well in America" so he may have been the NewOrleans problem that Eliezer and Tom Bartley tried to sort out,unsuccessfully, in 1899. As far as I know Eliezer had two brothers who went to America - Georgeand David. The legacy mentioned by Eliza in 1888 I didn't know aboutbefore. There was another story about a legacy from one of his brothers (whichone I know not) in 1899 which Eliezer and my grandfather Tom Bartleywent to try and sort out My mother wrote a brief memo about this -"Father went with Grandfather to America about something to do withGrandfather's brother's estate. I never heard the details of theirmission except that it was not successful and they returnedimmediately on account of a typhus outbreak. The Torr Head, a cargoboat was their means of transport." Attached is a copy of Tom Bartley's passage ticket which gives thedate as 1899 and the destination as New Orleans. Maybe there is arecord somewhere of the death of a David or George Gilmore in the areaof New Orleans in 1899. Conversation with Eilie "Grandfather [Eliezer Gilmore] made [?] byblasting the rocks & put rocks in the centre of the field and plantedtrees around them
