Joseph Gill to Joshua Grinage 2 Mar. 1797 rec. 20 Apr. 1797 Deed Book D Page 67 (deed). Joseph Gill of Oglethorpe Co., GA for $600 sell to Joshua Grinage of Columbia Co., GA the following negros: man Sam, woman Mary, from 1 Jan. 1791 now or lately in possession of Wm. Hopson in Rutherford Co., NC. Joseph hisXmark Gill. Wit: Thos. Moore, J.P., R. Crawford. (deed)
Columbia County 1806 tax lists show a Joseph M. Gill paying poll tax (listed as "qual?) for $0.31 1/4. He is listed separatedly from the three adjacent Gills: David, Robert, and Days Gill. It is not clear if this is the same Joseph as the 1797 deed shows in Oglethorpe Co. A Joseph M. Gill shows up in Jefferson County, Alabama.
I believe these are probably two different people.
