Generation No. 1

 

1.  JR. GEORGE3 GILL  (GEORGE2, THOMAS1 GILL?) was born July 13, 1775 in Chester Co., SO Carolina, and died March 11, 1848 in Independence Co. AR.  He married JANE CARTER Abt. 1806 in Hopkins Co., KY ?.  She was born in Chester Co., SC, and died August 15, 1849 in Independence Co., AR.

 

Notes for JR. GEORGE GILL:

When George Gill Jr. and Jane Carter Gill left Kentucky in the winter of 1815, they traveled by ox wagon with two other families: Col. Stewart's and Robert Livingston's.  Together they may have taken one of two routes into that part of the Missouri Territory designated as Lawrence County (present state of Arkansas). They arrived at Davidsonville on the Black River, a tiny village which had been established by French settlers that same year.  It became  the site of the first post office in Arkansas two years later.  Hardy  travelers passed

that way on the river  and over the military road which led from St. Louis to Texas.  From there  the three families had to cut their way through the virgin timber, following creeks toward the White River.  It is said that they went up Chaney Fork of Strawberry River, then down Mill Creek to Wideman, and to the south of Ruthie's Spring Branch.

 

     When they reached the vicinity of present Mt. Olive, AR, on the White River, they camped together during Christmas week.  Jane needed rest desperately, for her unborn baby was near term.  George preached a sermon to the small group on that Sabbath, leading them to give thanksgiving for their Lord's protection, and asking for further providential care.  It is said that he preached the first sermon in the northern part of AR.  That week the men blazed a pine and put their names and date on them.  Two of the pines stood for many years.  According to some, "These three families are numbered with the very first standards of law and order on the banks of the White River."

 

     Perhaps the three families stayed together until Jane's new son, John C.(Carter?) could be born January 8, 1816.  The families then separated. George traveled north about three miles, crossed to the south side of White

River, and settled opposite the south side of Piney Bayou at what is now known as Watkin's Bend.

 

     His two small sons, Isaac and Addison, ages nine and seven, did all they could, but it was up to George to cut the timber and haul it to a clearing on  the flat fertile bottomland near the river.  Perhaps he and his two neighbors

helped one another with the house raisings, in order to quickly get into some substantial shelter.  Ten year old Tabitha helped her mother, and watched over four year old Mary and the toddling William.  There George planted corn and a large garden, and continued to clear the land  that he hoped to claim through the land office when one was established.  During that time he preached regularly at Col. Stewart's log house.

 

     On April 17, 1817, and again the next year, George was appointed territorial govenor to serve the large county of Lawrence as a Justice of the Peace.  At the second appointment he was to serve four years.  In 1817 his

house was designated as the legal polling place.  On June 24th settlers of the White River Township (present Izard Co., AK), came out of the woods and down the river to the Gill's log house to cast their ballots.  George and Robert Livingston served as election judges.

 

     About that time a treaty was made by the U.S. government with the Cherokee Indians, giving the Indians most of the Arkansas Ozarks, beginning with the southwest side of the White River.  Although the Cherokees didn't move there, they allowed the Shawnees, under Chief Lewis (half brother to Tecumseh and the Prophet) to settle the land.  The tribe, numbering about 2000, and under the protection of an American agent, divided into three settlements on the White River.  One was at Livingston's place, one at Lunnin's place, and George Gill place.

 

     When the Shawnees gathered at George's new farm, Jane, who was pregnant once again, may have panicked, pulled her little ones into the house and barred the door.  George  knew it was no use to oppose them, for they had legal rights to his land.  He must have relived scenes from that dreadful night at Tippecanoe when he battled the Shawnees just a few years before.  Now his was being taken by the Prophet's half brother, who had sided with the Americans during the War of 1812.

 

     Leaving behind all his hard labor, he moved across the river and built a house near what is now known as the Whitehouse place about 1820.  Once again he cleared land, and preached on the Sabbath.  Two more sons were born there, his namesake-George Jr., and Silas Redmon.

 

     After a few years in his new location on the north side of the White River, some time in the early 1820s, George decided to move once again, without claiming the land as his homesite.  Instead, he probably scouted the lands to the south along the river, then loaded all his family's belongings on flatboats and floated down the White River to a fertile place he had chosen (about four or five miles northeast of present Batesville).  This time he had found a place which felt right to him.  It would be his home until the end of his days.

 

     On October 12, 1825, George may have trimmed his "mutton chop" sideburns, donned his high-necked waistcoat, and tall beaver hat.  Properly attired, he rode to the land office in Independence County, Arkansas Territory, which in 1819 had been separated from Missouri and had discarded its previous designation as Lawrence County.  On that day George filed patents on two tracts of land.

 

     On his land bordering the river, he built a fine two-story log house.  It is said that farmers from a ten mile radius came to help raise the house, made from hewn logs one foot wide and deep.  Jane must have smiled in  anticipation.  At last they would have an enduring home, a place to sink their wandering feet into.  George built various out buildings, including barns and a smokehouse. East of the house a large orchard was set out, and crops of corn , cotton and tobacco were planted on the rich bottom-land along the river.

 

     In 1826 George, and a fellow Baptist preacher named David Orr, busily rode a circuit, meeting for worship in the homes of the growing numbers of settlersin the wilderness area.  They organized the Rehobeth Baptist Church that year, and continued preaching there three years later when it was meeting in the Vance community school house.  It was then moved to Blue Creek, and finally to Moorefield.   Rehobeth Church is the oldest existing Baptist Church in Arkansas

.

     On Saturday, July 2,1831, George left his plantation and made the four mile ride to the courthouse in Batesville to join others to organize a Temperance Association of Independence County.  Rev. George Gill was elected second vice-president.      Often called "George the Scribe" he was a prolific writer of letters to

church papers, the local newspaper and his friends.      Within the next few years George and Jane's three younger sons all married.  Silas Redmon wed Rebecca Ann Harmon on July 9, 1842.  John C. had married Pricilla Hankins in 1844, but after her death married Mary Elizabeth Brickey, daughter of Judge Hohn C. and Catherine Murry Brickey.  On February 13, 1845, George III, married Margaret Luster.  Although George did not officiate at most of his children's weddings, he performed many ceremonies for others in the 1830s and 40s.

 

     From 1846 to 1848, George served as Independence County surveyor, exercising a side interest which appealed to him most of his life.  During those years his circuit riding slowed and he spent more time on his homeplace, especially sharing his grief with Jane at the death of their son Isaac, who left two children and his widow "Betsy".  In 1847, their youngest son Redmon also died, after giving them one grandson.

 

     Grief continued to esculate for Jane when she realized that her husband George was ill, and would not recover.  On a chilly spring day, March 11,1848, George lay in his high down-filled bed and died, surrounded by all his family in the log house he had built over a quarter of a century before.

 

     Jane lived only 16 months after her husband's burial, breathing her last on August 16, 1849.  Her coffin was probably placed beside George's although neither marker is visible.  Others are buried there, and the small family plot came to be designated on maps as "Gill Cemetery".

     Possibly James Gill, son of William and Mary Anne Gill, and a nephew of

George, is also buried here, since he reportedly died in Hot Springs, AR and

also reportedly buried in Batesville, AR......EAG

4.  ADDISON4 GILL (GEORGE3, GEORGE2, THOMAS1 GILL?) was born September 18, 1809 in Hopkins Co., KY, and died March 04, 1857 in Independence Co., AR.  He married NANCY LACEFIELD December 10, 1834 in Independence Co., AR.  She was born July 1814.

 

Notes for ADDISON GILL:

Addison born in KY, came to AR as a boy of seven.  He grew to manhood in AR

helping his father and mother about the farm.  One fall day in 1832 young

Addison Gill picked up his rifle, mounted his horse, waved good-bye to his

parents, and took a farewell look at the White River just beyond the house.

He raced off with other young men of the neighborhood to join Captain Jesse

Bean's Arkansas Mounted Rangers of the Army of the United States for a year.

They were to assist in keeping down trouble between Indian Tribes as well as between the Indians and white squatters of that region (present Oklahoma). The government provided swordsand pistols, one dollaqr per day for each man with his horse, and a place to sleep while in camp.  Coffee, flour, and salt were also provided, but they hunted the rest of their food.  During times of severe weather there was much sickness and some died.

     During the month of October Addison rode on a special excursion out into Indian country west of Fort Gibson with the rangers, along with the noted author Washington Irving, who wanted to explore a bit.  Mr. Irving was much impressed with the "raw, undisciplined band, levied among the wild youngsters of the frontier who had signed up for the sake of roving adventure."  Later he detailed the trip in his book "A Tour on the Prairies", and stated,"We send our youth abroad to grow luxurious and effeminate in Europe; it appears to me that a precious tour on the prairies would be more likely to produce that manliness, simplicity, and self-dependence, most in unison with our political institutions."

     At the end of his tour of duty Addison arrived back home, and that winter, December 10, 1834, he married Nancy Lacefield, with M.D. Newton

officiating.  They moved on land which he purchased along the White River in Section 25, next to his brother Isaac's land.  Perhaps Nancy and Betsy became friends as well as sister-in-laws, helping each other with their babies. Later Redmon Gill obtained 51 acres from his father in Section 26, near Addison and Isaac.

     Addison farmed his 262 acres, including 145 acres in the northwest of

section 22, township 13,range 7 and south 1/2 of th northwest part of section 25, township 13, range 8, and the southwest quarter of the southwest quarter section 24, township 13, range 8.  He and Nancy reared three boys (Henry C., George, and Thomas Lacefield and two daughters (Hannah and Mary Jane).  He sent his boys to a subscription school nearby, and the family attended Sulpher Springs Baptist Church, south of the present Pilgrim's Rest Baptist Church.

     Then on March 4, 1857 tragedy struck.  At the age of forty-seven, Addison died.  Hannah , age 17, George, 10, and Thomas 8, returned home after the burial with their grieving mother.  A $2000 bond was met, securing his estate.  On April 14, 1857 Nancy met with her lawyer, Elisha Baxter (later Governor of Arkansas), to petition the probate court to appoint her guardian of her minor children and permission to sell Addison's personal property.

     In January 1867 Nancy paid taxes through John Ruddell, who acted as her agent.  Nancy married Samuel Batton, but the land in section 22 was kept for her children who later inherited it.
