William Arthur Gill may have been born about 1886. Fairly certain he was born in America. Son George was born in Kentucky, USA. Birth date was 14 May 1908 and death date was 20 or 23 Sept 1945 in Columbus, Bartholomew, Indiana, USA. No dates or places on daughter Viola other than she married Mervin Lair. Thank you

There is something odd here. The death cert was signed by Arthur Gill. But if Carrie died Kentucky, 6 Sep 1912 how could she be Viola Brand Lair mother who according to her death reg was born 16 Jun 1913 ?

Maybe Viola was born to a second wife, although that is not the family story. Arthur was married possibly three times. Per US Census 1930: William A. Gill was married to Leona and she had a daughter named Katherin Pence.

Viola Gill had children named Betty, Verla (sp), Patty, and Michael. My source is my late grandmother who was Viola's niece.

I think this might be your Arthur Gill in 1920. He looks like he married an Ethel ??
Viola is shown as being born in 1911 so carrie Gill could have died in 1912 after her birh

That makes more sense. Using FamilySearch.org, I haven't been able to find anything on parents of William Arthur Gill. Can you recommend other free sources? Thanks

by noggin on 2013-10-22 10:26:58

Sorry I do not know of other free sites in the USA I am from Liverpool England

by noggin on 2013-10-22 10:28:01

I think his name is just Arthur Gill.

I really appreciate your help.
