  • Name Margaret Wanless 
    Born 1793-1800  Bath Co, Virginia Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Gender Female 
    Died Between Jun 1840 and Jul 1850 
    Notes 
    • Birthdate range calculated assuming she was at least 16 at marriage; then assuming she is no older than her husband, and she was between 40 and 50 in the 1840 census.

      1838: See brother Stephen's entry for joint land sale; she is listed with her husband.

      1840: There is a female listed in the only James Galespie household in Bath, age 40-50, and the kids ages and sexes match, so this is most likely her.

      1850: James Galespie lives, with no wife, next door to his dau. Elizabeth Wiley in Highland Co.

      She & James must have lived in Indiana briefly between 1834 and 1838, since their son Joseph was born there abt 1835. But she returned to Bath co for the land sale, so didn't die in Indiana. I presume Margaret died after 1838, since the youngest child listed was born in 1835 and she appeared in the 1838 land sale, and probably after 1840 assuming she was the older female listed in the census with James.
