The new familysearch beta site has the following children of Levi and Ann:

Alice Gilchriss bp 1789, Sarah Gilchrist bp 1792, Levi Gilchrist bp 1795, Phebe Gilchrist bp 1798 and John Gilcrist bp 1801.
Alice was baptised at Great Budworth, and the others at Lower Whitley.

The marriage is also there: Levi Gilchrist to Ann Dickens at Great Budworth on 13th June 1775.

There's also a Mary Gilchrist bp 1776, William Gilchrist 1778, Mary Gilchrist bp 1784 and Ann Gilchrist 1786, all baptised in Great Budworth, with father's name Levi, and no mother's name given.

Other possibles: Betty Gilchrist, bp 1781 at Great Budworth, father's name Leck Gilchrist (possibly a mistranscription of Levi), and Mary Gilchrist, bp 1790 at Great Budworth, mother's name Ann but no father's name given.

Also found Levi's baptism on Ancestry:

Levi Gillcrist, bp 16 Jun 1754 at Great Budworth, Cheshire, father's name John


Can't see an obvious baptism for Ann Dickens.

The Levi baptised in 1754 would have been 21 when he got married to Ann, and 47 when John was baptised in 1801. That would perfectly possible, assuming that Ann was the same age as Levi, or a bit younger.
