Florida CSA Pension Files: File # Name Year Pages in file

Andrew Gill #A02528, Home Guard, Wife: Mollie Foster, Hamilton County, Florida 1921--16 pages in file.

Florida CSA Records (courtesy of Coley Scott): Andrew Gill born 10 Feb. 1850 Lowndes Co. GA died 1924 Hamilton Co., FL

note by FOC, he was born  10 Feb. 1850, see record Coley found above.  Therefore, he is probably the son of John Gill.

(I browse around so much that I have neglected to record where I got this information; but, I think it was from the Florida Archives Website under Civil War soldiers and pensions. I guesstimate that this was written about 1925. If any of you know which Florida Gill this was, please let us know.  Ceya Minder, Monitor, Gill Round Robin, Reminder@comcast.net)
