Hi,

This message cross-posted on the Fillmore Co. GenWeb board. Am looking for family info on the following families from Fillmore County:

Gillan - in and around Exeter, may have some up in Seward Co. also
Hurst - in and around Fairmont
Kahler - in and around Fairmont

Birth/marriage/death records; news articles, obits., etc. welcomed; cemetery info and pictures would be awesome, I would be willing to get info & pictures in Wyuka, Calvary & Lincoln Memorial cemeteries in Lincoln.

My wife is a Gillan from the Exeter-Cordova area. Her mom collected quite a bit of material and I have some headstones and photos. Let me know how I can help. Dan

Thanks for the reply! My grandmother, Mary Kathryn Gillan was born in Exeter along with her siblings. Quite proud of her Gillan heritage. Wound up Lincoln where I am.

The Gillans I'm most interested in follow; I'm given to understand there are probably siblings and/or cousins of my great-grandfather George Kinnear Gillan in the area.

The following siblings of my grandmother are probably in an Exeter cemetery:

James Johnson Gillan, 1900 - 1906;
Sarah Jane Gillan, 1901-1903;
Paul Elton Gillan, 1909-1933;

Mother, Lucy Alma McNeal Gillan, 1875-1925;
Father, George Kinnear Gillan, 1858-1909;

My grandmother's maternal grandparents might be there,
James Paschal McNeal, 1838-1897;
Sarah Emily Harrison, 1840-1926;

Stretching things a little bit, George K. Gillan's siblings:
Anna K. Gillan (unknown if she married but evidence suggests she came to Exeter) 1861-1946;
David K. Gillan, 1872-1958;

Trying to keep this on-topic, noticed in your profile you're looking for Maiers from Germany/NE/KS. My wife's great-grandparents Maier came from Germany, settled in Araphahoe/Holbrook NE. We have very little info on them beyond that.

Feel free to contact me at lou at hurst-martin.net (replace the "at" and spaces with the normal @ symbol.)

I have seen that name before but can't place it right now and don't have it in any of our info. Probably a relative!

I don't have anything new from the time I wrote the original note here on ancestry.com. Most of the info I have came from my Dad who tried to keep up with the Kahler side. My line to the Kahlers is me -> Dad -> Louis. W. Hurst -> Emma Marie Kahler. I'm in Lincoln, NE, are you in the area too?
