John D. Anderson's (1819-1849)biography in the Texas Handbook reports that he studied law in the office of Barrie Gillespie. John Sayles's (1825-1897) biography reports his marriage to Mary Elizabeth Gillespie. Is this the daughter of Barrie[Berry?] Gillespie? Tennessee Tidbits reports the marriage of Emily Lane to Col. Berry Gillespy in Purdie, TN, 4 Jan 1832. Marriage records in Washington Co., TX, show a Mary Gilipin as bride of John Sayles. Did he marry twice?
The Washington Co. Census of 1850, p 285, shows M.E., age 17; and John Sayles, age 25 living in the same household with Thomas Lane, aged 60; Surname Money, B. Galsper M. 45, lawyer (illegible), age 45; Money, Emily, age 36, born in TN. Are there other problems with the Census of 1850 in Washington County? Are there people with the surname Money in other records?
