Welcome to the Gilpatrick & Collins
My Gilpatricks came from Maine and
the Collins from Massachusetts and ended up in Montana. A lot is known about
James Fergus, Luella Gilpatrick's father. Go to the other section for Fergus
I have transcribed a number of things written by my
family. Have a look.
Tombstone of Thomas Killpatrick or Gilpatrick in Maine.
He is the first of our line and came from Northern Ireland. Would be nice
to find his family back to Scotland.
I am not positive about how we connect to the first Gilpatrick family
in Maine, but I am sure we do. Ours is a Samuel Gilpatrick and I have found
his marriage in a book about Saco in York County, Maine. Unfortunately, there
are several families with Samuels and I am not certain which one is ours.
So if you have information on Gilpatrick family with all the spelling variations,
I would love to hear from you.
New!!! And now the text from the book by
G. T. Ridlon Saco Valley Settlements and Families, the section on Killpatrick
and Gillpatrick. Text with his genealogy notes on various families.
Work in Slowed
I have worked on Fergus
families from the same area around Glasgow — now expanded to the area around
Edinburgh with the addition of other name variations and Killpatrick from
the same areas and source
My main family collection of Gilpatrick genealogy originating in Maine
I have compiled data from the LDS Scottish Church Records
CD-ROM into families as best I can. Please have a look and let me know how
to add your Fergus or Killpatrick family or correct what I have.
You may look here and download the gedcom file for these 4,938 Fergus
& Killpatrick persons--none of them living now.
I had a bit of trouble making it usable. Labeling it a .ged file seems
not to preserve the line returns to keep stuff neat and orderly. When I save
it as a text file when it already was then I can not open it in Netscape.
So I saved it as html and it looks great on the web. I renamed it .ged instead
of .html so I think it might display for you and give the correct file type.
If not rename it to .ged and it should work with your genealogy program.
My Fergus and Gilpatrick (Killpatrick) families may
have a common connection. Christian Pollock is in both groups by marriage.
It was easiest do do all the searching updating of the first file as one group
in the same file.

Hiding my address underneath to avoid
getting spam and unsolicited viruses has not worked very well. You will
have to type in my email address from the picture file above. Perhaps you
will also have to verify that you are a real person and not a robot if you
are not in my mailing list. I apologize, but I know of no other good way
to limit the junk mail.
