Young Gill b. abt. 1761 in Virginia, d. 17 Dec 1854, in Walton Co, Georgia, buried in Nancy Myers Cemetery, Social Circle, Walton County, Georgia. He is said to have married Ann Singleman abt. 1784 in North Carolina.


He apparently has a daughter, Meeky Gill, born Oct 31, 1787, in Stokes County, North Carolina, and died June 5, 1861, in Salem, Macon County, Alabama. She married Zebulon Lewis and her descendents have joined the DAR based on Young Gill's service.


Judging from the 1790 census, Young Gill had an additional daughter born before 1790.  Some researcher say she was named Elizabeth, but I have not seen any documentation.


Some researchers say his full name was Thomas Young Gill, but I have not found records in any name other than "Young Gill." I think the name "Thomas" might have been tacked on to connect him to William and Susannah Young Gill. There actually are some online family trees which list him as their son Thomas Young Gill even though Susannah Young was only 5 years older than Young Gill.


According to DAR records, Young Gill enlisted in the North Carolina Militia as a private and was in the Battle of Guilford in 1781. This is probably accurate because he is listed in the North Carolina Revolutionary War Accounts:
