I have an Andrew Gilchrist whose was born abt 1774 in Ireland, his son, Andrew Gilchrist was born 1819 in Ireland too. My grandmother wrote that Andrew Gilchrist (the second) immigrated here to the states when he was 3 years old which would put that immigration year at 1821. Since they lived in New York from 1830 on I will have to say they immigrated to New York from Ireland.
Does anyone have any information on that immigration? And who came with them? :)
