My grandfather Robert Gill was born in Ireland in 1870. Settled in Lynn Ma. aroumd 1900. Need to find out exact place of birth, which could be County Cork. For years the Boston Globe would show a full page map of Ireland on St Patricks day. The map would contain every Irish name you could think of except Gill. My mother told me that the name was Scottish and changed from McGill, when the family way back moved to Ireland. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Bob Smith(rustis@fiber-net.com)
