Often in the sale of estate items you will find relatives of the family. This case is no different. James H Donald and John Donald are the sons of James C Donald. James E Brogran and W P (Wyatt Paul) Gillespie are the son-in-laws. I suspect, thought I don’t know, that D H Gillespie is Daniel Heck Gillespie who was Wyatt’s cousin. John Eaton may be James wife, Elizabeth Wallace’s uncle.
