The family of Gilchrist will next be noticed. This family is not very extensive, neither in name nor its connections in Marion County; yet its respectability and prominence require that it shall have some notice, though it be short. The progenitor of the family in this county was Dr. Daniel Gilchrist, a dental surgeon, from Richmond or Robeson County, N. C. The writer recollects seeing Dr. Gilchrist when a boy in 1831... He married a Miss Johnson of Horry County, bought the old Newsom place and was living upon it. By this marriage he had and raised a family of four sons and three daughters. The sons were Archie, D. E., Charles B. and Johnson. The daughters were and are Virginia, Georgia and Ida.
