In the Modesto Citizens Cemetery we find buried

Gillett Andrew J b. 1844, d. July 23, 1913 Bl 92 Lot 3 GR 5, with remarks in record book, "69 y. b. WI Plot owner: Mrs. Ann Letha Gillett #427"

and

Gillett Frank E. b. 1884 d. Aug. 4, 1953, Ave 5 GR 53, with remarks in record book, "b. MI d. Modesto 68 y #427"

__________________________________

The 1910 Census for Stanislaus County has

Gillette A J E.D. 154 Sheet 3A Line 15

and Annie Gillette, same, but on line 16

__________________________________

In the 1912 Modesto City Directory on Page 37 we see the addresses just a bit differently for

Gillet Frank E b 309 Oak

Gillett Mary E (wid F N) h 309 Oak

They are listed as being at 309 instead of 305 as in 1911. The info on the others is the same in both years.

In the 1914 Modesto City Directory on Page 36 we see

Gillett Annletha (wid A J) h 404 12th

Gillett Frank E lab b 309 Oak

Gillett Mary E (wid F N) h 309 Oak

Gillett Milo plumber b 309 Oak

Gillette Lynne T brtndr Pike & Co h 1016 N

Gillette Paul F (Isis Theatre) r 19 1/2 10th

____________________

In the 1917 Modesto City Directory we see

Gillette Lynne T lab Borden's h 1016 N

Gillett Mrs Annletha h 404 12th

____________________

Interestingly, in the 1920 Directory, Annletha and others are listed not as Gillett but Gillette, with an "e".

It says

Gillette Mrs Annletha J r 714 5th

and

Gillette Frank h 714 5th

Gillette John draymn r 1215 G

Gillette Milo r 714 5th

Gillette Sydney E (Gillette & English) r 823 1/2 10th

Gillette & English (S E Gillette C B English) billiards 911 1/2 10th

Does this addition of the "e" represent a correction of the Directory? That would mean the earlier listings shoud have been "Gillette" with an "e". Or this could represent an error in the 1920 Directory. It is uncommon for a number of relatives to all change the spelling of their surname simultaneously. That did happen on a rather large scale once when Senator Francis Gillett(e) ascertained in the 1800s after intensive research that his Gillett family should be using the "e" on the end, as his earlier ancestors had. When he made this correction numerous of his relatives made the change as well, on the authority of his research. But what happened here with the Modesto City Directory is unknown at present.

The 1937 Directory has

Gillette Bernard G emp Milk Producers of Central Calif r rt 4 bx 1085

Gillette Willard A (Stella) h 1018 1/2 12th

The 1950 Directory has some of the same as above, but also

Gillette Ivan H (Dorothy M) emp MPA h 621 Leon Av

Of course these bits of information are all from earlier years.

There are presently Gillettes living in numerous locations in and around Modesto.

A bit south of Modesto, in Merced, there are more: If when leaving Modesto today one enters the onramp of Highway 99 heading south from Modesto, and drives the legal speed limit, he will reach the City of Merced in Merced County in 20 minutes.

This region is another area that Gillettes have been in for quite some time.

One who settled in this area (two miles west of Le Grand actually) in 1879 was J. Lotus Gillette from Onondaga County, New York. His parents were Jason and Margaret (Fancher) Gillette. By the turn of the century, J. L. Gillette and his wife Carrie (Newman) Gillette had built their homesite into a 560 acre ranch. The "Historical and Biographical Record" of the region said of J. Lotus Gillette in his day that he gave "much assistance" to the "public welfare" and "by his public spirit and energy has become recognized as one of the representative men of the county."
