Irish Gill Family

County Armagh, Northern Ireland

The following information is transcribed from Family Group Records (note by FOC: these are not primary records.) as accumulated by Elmer Oris Parker, Archivist and Historian of Columbia S.C. in a works called "Some Pioneer and Allied Families of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Texas, Volume 2." This information came from the Statesboro, GA Regional Library, Genealogy Section. Every effort has been made in this transcription to be true to the original typewritten sheets as possible. The Family Group Record sheets show they are from The Genealogical Society of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Inc. and a copyright date of 1972, so the information would have been typed up after that date. Where children are listed, there is a separate Family Group Record for that particular family. I make no claims about the authenticity or verification of the data below. Mine is a "scrivener's" task. -Steven Roy Gill [srg].

(note by FOC.  According to data, the originals of which I have not seen, this Gill family was from Edinburgh, and were so called "Scots-Irish," good Scottish Presbyterians imported by England to northern Ireland to outnumber the native Irish Catholics.  There supposedly exist family Bible records which state Edinburgth, Scotland, as the birthplace of some of the original clan.  If correct, these are not "traditional Irish."  I believe they were all Presbyterians in the US, consistent with this origin.  This record does not agree in detail with others submitted to me, and I have left them all as is.  FOC 2004)

Col. GEORGE GILL of Chester District, breathed his last on Monday, the 8th of July last, and was buried with the honors of war, at Fishing Creek Church. The following companies of infantry and cavalry turned out in full uniform to participate in paying the last sad tribute of respect to the departed hero, viz: Capt. McDill's Rocky Creek Rifle Company, with its excellent band of music, Capt. Simpson's Lewisville Rifle Company, Capt. Walker's Chesterville Company of Cavalry, and Capt. Backstrom's Rich Hill Troop of Cavalry-all under the command of Capt. McDill of the Rocky Creek Rifle Company. The citizens of the surrounding neighborhood numbering over one thousand, were in attendance to witness the soleum rites, and mingle the tears of sympathy and sorrow with the afflicted family.  Colonel GEORGE GILL, the subject of this short biographical sketch, was enlisted into the public service by his cousin Col. Arch Gill, in the year 1779, being then about 18 or 19 years of age. He had previously, with great difficulty, been restrained by his father from entering the service, but after Huck's defeat had restored the drooping spirits of the Whigs of York and Chester, and given that outward impulse to the cause of liberty which was never again checked till the enemy were expelled from the country, the ardor of our youthful hero could no longer be restrained by parental authority. The first engagement which he was in was at the taking of Mobley's meeting house under Capt. (John) McClure. He was under the same officer at the investment of (Lt. Col. George) Turnbull's Fort at Rocky Mount, in an unsuccessful attempt to take the place. From thence he went down the Congaree, and was at the taking of Congaree Fort, by Sumter, who caused the garrison to surrender by throwing up a breast work in the night which threatened to demolish the place. He was also at the taking of Motte's Fort, on the Congaree, where the lady proprietor in her devotion to her country, furnished the patriot army with the means of firing her own splendid edifice to dislodge the enemy. He was at the investment of Ninety-six, under Gen. Greene, and being out on a scouting expedition, and having made prisoner of a British soldier, and being as yet ignorant of Greene's retreat, he entered within the British line, and the picket guard closed upon him-but putting spurs to his spirited charger, he escaped amid a shower of bullets.  He was after this retreat of Greene in the swamps with Gen. Sumter, until the battle of Eutaw Springs (8 September 1781). He belonged at that time to the State Troops, under Col. Wade Hampton. The day previous to this well-contested battle, they employed themselves in grinding their swords, and thus prepared themselves for that scene of havoc, which is told to us at this remote day, by the dry bones which are bleaching on that sanguinary field. The fight commenced at Williamson's Branch, three miles from Eutaw Springs where (col. Henry "Light Horse Harry") Lee's Legion charged the vanguard, and the State Troops, the British infantry. After the battle was over, our hero had fearful evidence of his proximity to danger and death, from the fact that Barnett*(Samuel Barnett, probably a brother of Capt. Jacob Barnett, was killed at Eutaw Springs) his inseparable companion, was slain, and blood was dripping from the point of his own sword.-THE CAMDEN JOURNAL, Wednesday, 21 August 1844 (vol. 5, no. 33), page 3, copied from THE TEMPERENCE ADVOCATE.")

I have made every effort to use the language, spelling, abbreviations and notes on these sheets. Places where I have made additions are noted with my initials (srg), all other notes were made by the author of these sheets, Elmer Oris Parker. Each page is stamped with" Elmer O.
