The Mary Gill mentioned here, I feel, is the widow of my great great grandfather George Gill, Sr. She was still living at the time in Madisonville, KY and had dispatched her son Josephus (Joseph) to transact her business in SC under a power of attorney. Josephus married and left Madisonville in, I believe, 1819 for Howard Co., MO. Mary died in 1825 and is buried in Rose Creek Cem. in Madisonville.
Thomas and John were brothers who married CURRY sisters and Mary would be the brother's step-mother.
I made a typo in my e-mail of 10/10/03; My father died in 1962 instad of 1942. His mother, was Martha Ann Clark, a daughter of Jotham Clark. One of her sisters lived to the ripe old age of 107 years.
George Gill, Sr and his secon wife, Mary ??. George and Mary had the following children
My information comes from my father who died in 1942 at the age of 93; Twyla Gill Wright, author of "Latchstrings", now also deceased; Bud Mueller husband of Paula Gill , a descendent of Samuel Curry Gill, and resides in Trinidad, CA; and Lt-cmdr. Mark Bennett Guevarra.. I may also be distant relative of yours. My Great grand father was Jotham Clark, b. May 27, 1793, in Holliston, Middlesex Co., MA, the son of Bulah Clark, a daughter of Naham and Mary Stearns Clark. I am 85 years old and have been researching for more than 40 years
Thomas GILL born 1762 was the son of my great-great grandfather, George GILL, Sr., of the Fishing Creek GILLS, AND A HALF BROTHER TO MY GREAT-GRAND-FATHER, William Gill, of Sullivan Co., IN. He was a full brother of Abraham GILL
