Georgianna was born in Wabash, Indiana, where many of the McClure family lived.
Sadly, Georgiana's mother Olivette died at age 20, when the baby was only 2.
When Georgiana was 15, her father remarried to Rebekah V. Wilt (1896-1975), and that's how Georgiana met her future husband--through the Wilt family.
Georgiana married William Evert Gillespie in 1925. His mother was a Wilt!
