Edna Reschke sent the following: There are three from the list in the Fort Green Cemetery that must be in unmarked graves: T. Palmer Gill, Euel Harley Gill, and Reuben R. Gill. Any idea where they are buried? Perhaps I could put names on some of the unmarked graves or unreadable markers.

"My children and I just completed a survey of Fort Green  (Baptist) Cemetery and I have more information for you on your family: (Well, more than you have on the internet..)

The road you spoke of was named after John E. Gill who lived on the corner of Highway 62 and John Gill Road. The house is still there. (That's how most roads in Hardee County were named -after someone that lived on the road.)
Caroline M. Gill is buried between Lizzie Gill and Infant son of Mr. & Mrs. Matosa (note different spelling) Gill, March 18, 1910.

These are all the Gills currently buried in the Baptist cemetery:
