David M. Gill, b<1815, native of North Carolina, moved to Mississippi and then to Kentucky where he died at age 80 years; his wife was Maria Scott of South Carolina. Perhaps related to the David Gill of Wake Co., NC born 1755-67, or that same David Gill, if he died c1840 at age 80, he was born c1760.  This same David M. Gill married Maria Scott, born in South Carolina, daughter of a Scottish schoolmaster.  Does anyone have census or other data on this man?  Where does this man fit?? (This information is from the Gill Gazette) Five Known Children of David M.
