Gillikin in Carteret County

Hope all of the following is of help to you....
I only have one Gillikin name included in my research thus far:

Sally/Sarah Gillikin married Levi Bell (b. 1781, d. will written Aug 8, 1868 & probated Aug 11, 1969) son of Newell Bell (d. 1793) and Elisha ___? Sally & Levi were married April 23, 1810 in Carteret Co. and, based on his will “…the rest of my estate to be sold and tombstones erected at my grave and Sally’s…", she apparently preceded him in death.

While I do not have a complete copy of the two volume set “Heritage of Carteret County, NC” vol. 1 – 1982 and vol. 2 – 1984, I seem to recall seeing several pages of Gillikin family histories and those may provide some starting places for your research, though they cannot be guaranteed accurate as I have found errors in others from those volumes that I have used and researched. In what I do have with me, on p. 74 of vol. 1 under the Historical Summary of Beaufort, it lists Tho. Gillikin as a juryman in 1723 – so obviously Gillikins have a long association with Carteret Co.

The “Record of Marriages in Carteret Co., NC, prior to 1825 (compiled by Annie Walker Burnes 1936) lists the following:
