Gillespie Vital Statistics: Births Marriages Deaths
This database relates exclusively to Letters Patent issued by the Land Patent Branch of the Department of the Interior. The records refer to grants issued in three Western Provinces of Canada. Townships are numbered from south to north starting at the USA border. They are numbered from 1 to 129 and 141. Ranges are numbered from east to west starting from each meridian and numbered 1 to 34, from east to west. These are the earliest Gillespie settlers to the Western Provinces, and if all three charts are placed side by side, one can more easily identify the location for all families.
