A Gill married into my family of Thackaras, and I am trying to figure out just who he was. The name is William M. Gill, dates are 1818-1880, and according to his tombstone (Norwich Twp., Franklin Co., Ohio) he was born in St. Clairsville (Belmont Co., Ohio).

In 1860 and 1870 federal censuses he is in Norwich Twp., Franklin Co., Ohio with his wife Gabriella Thackara Gill and two children, Allen T. and Maggie. He died before the 1880 census was taken. In 1850 he may be in Circleville, Pickaway Co., Ohio, but I am not certain this is the right William M. Gill.

He probably comes from a Quaker family, although I do not believe he was a practicing Quaker himself.

My gg-grandfather died at Vicksburg in 1863 and seems to have been very close to his brother-in-law William M. Gill, who handled all of his finances and was his chief correspondent before F.J. Thackara died.

Thanks very much!
