    1. [S598] Email from Amy Kimball Stoddard, Stoddard, Amy Kimball, 8/19/10>, "Re: Elijah F. Gillen on Find A Grave," (Reliability: 3), 4 Sep 2010.
      Okay, you 2,

      Maybe just a little introduction of myself, too. Born in Lawton, Oklahoma 6 June 1959 into a military family with four other siblings. My father was a Col. in the Army. Lived mostly in Ohio and Virginia as a child, plus Gettysburg, Fort Lewis in Washington, Tokyo, Japan and S.F. Left the States after finishing high school i ī77 and married (stupid as I was/am) a Japanese guy and lived in Yokohama until 1982. Met a drunken Dane (what other type is there???) and moved to Denmark in Nov. 1982. Havenīt been the same since. Live alone now; have done for quite a few years. Work in the packaging industry for a Swedish company called SCA. Main hobbies are my Persian cats, genealogy, and trying to grow my roses. My old house from ca. 1904 keeps me busy... always something needs replacing. Luckily, I resemble my motherīs stock and am quite sensible. Travel to the States (normally) every 2-3 years to visit my mother in Colorado, but have been there every year for the past 3 years.

      My mother is a Smith and seems to come from the Guy Smith line from ca. 1700īs Virginia. Seems like just EVERBODY is and they accept the lineage. However, I consider us having a brick wall around 1800 or so.

      As I mentioned, my Kimballs, Gillens, and Framptons are my maternal side. The Kimballs are pretty much established as being gospel and only have the Gillens as far back as William Gillen (Elijahīs father). Elijah did write a letter in 1892 where he claims that his grandfather came from Ireland to Penn. and were millners and in the shipping business back in Ireland. Also claims the original spelling was Gilliland. I have tried dabbling in the Gilliland name but not lucky yet. The Framptons go back to William Frampton the Quaker and "buddy" of William Penn. If you ever get a chance, take a trip to Philly and go to the archives. I actually held a parchment, which was some type of deed, where I believe our William was selling land to William Penn. And our William Framptonīs seal was still on it !!! Also love walking the streets of Philly and tracking his footsteps and trying to place where he had his brewery. I KNOW Iīm a Frampton.... we like a good beer !!! Maybe I was put in Denmark for a reason !!!

      Am I to assume that you 2 are descended from Isaac Frampton Gillen ??? Funny thing is, everyone has Elijahīs middle name as Fisher. We just donīt know where that name would come from... it doesnīt exist in that line. Elijah always went by E.F. I donīt know about naming patterns... if they would use the same middle name or not. They do in Denmark big-time if you are lucky enough to have a middle name.

      Iīll be going to Philly on the 1st of Oct. and have demanded (!!!) that my aunt get all relics gathered in one place. I do have copies of some letters and whatnot already but hope to find more. But our best bet is Robert Easton in Los Angeles. His grandmother, Katharine Gillen Easton, was responsible for most of the things I have and thereīs gotta be more. His family is also "dying out" and we gotta get him before he retires in Hawaii. Maybe I should take a trip next year to Calif. and we can go and break down his door.

      So, John, youīre telling me that your mother adopted you out as a baby ??? I love those stories when people meet up again. But it must be terrible growing up and not "having an identity". I also have a 1/2 brother and he never knew his father. I had found out that his father died 13 years ago and started searching for some of the names in the obituary. Called one (he was a lawyer) and they said immediately, "that case is already closed !!!". Yeah, yeah... back up the bus.... we donīt want any money !!! Turned out, this cousin or whatever still had boxes of paperwork in her attic and they eventually reached my brother. All ends well.

      What part of Denmark have you been to, Diane???
