I would like to add what
information I have on my Gill's seeing as Gill is my maiden name I
have some info but not much!
My GGrandfather Thomas
Gill. No info on his siblings. b.1858 d.1948 birth place
unknown but we think Chatham, Ontario Canada. He married: Eva
Bates b.1858-d.1952 We do not know where she came from but her
parents were: Alonzo Bates. origination unknown B.@ Dec.1815 or 1816.Died
Waupaca, Wis. D. Jan 22,1891 and Lucy Bates. maiden name Blackmore
B. 1818 origination unknown. Died Waupaca
Wi D.1902. Lucy Bates's daughter in
law Alma Gill who was a Testin. Her grandmother was a Mclauglin.
Thomas Gill, born Chatham Ontario canada.had a brother named Edward Gill
+ Isabella. They lived in the Town of Blenheim,County of Kent,Ontario
at least in 1931. I found a copy of his last will and testiment. People
related to him and mentioned in the will are as follows.
wife: Isabella Gill
Brother: Thomas Gill (this was my great grandfather 1856-1947)
Sister: Mary Green
nephew: Sam Green
nephew: William Green
nephew: James Green
Niece: Lucy Pardo
niece Vera Gill
Brother Richard Gill
nephew: Orville Gill
niece: Minnie Campbell
friend: Huntley Campbell
nephew: Hugh Gill
nephew: Edward Murdock
In another paper found associated with a Lucy Gill and we assume this was
edwards brother Richard's wife,because the names were listed as Richard Gill
estate. The following names were listed as people interested in the estate
of lucy gill, It was under a mental competency act and we assume she was
put into a home because of age. The date on this was 1945. If richard and
edward were born around the same time as thomas they would have been
approximatley 88 + or - in 1937 as would have been Richards wife.
those people listed are:

I am trying to find
more information about the Gill and Bates origination. As we do not have
their fathers names nor the actual dates they came here. I do have
the naturalization papers for Thomas Gill.But they say little else than his
wife's 1st name and their address at the time.
Our Gills lived in the
Wild Rose/Waupaca Wi. area. what used to be the town of dayton,or
springwater township. They were related thru marriage to Testins and we think
that my Lucy Bates may have been a McLaughlin before she
They are mostly all
buried in Crystal Lake cemetery (hwy k from waupaca)or Wild Rose
