Don here is the information on Elijah Gaskill's ancestors as I have it. I'm sure there are errors and much more that can be added. I am posting the first four generations of the Gaskill family which is what I think you were asking about.


GASKILL, FOUR GENERATIONS


Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM1 GASKILL died July 1703.

Children of WILLIAM GASKILL are:
2. i. WILLIAM2 GASKILL, b. Abt. 1700; d. 1770, Portsmouth Island, NC.
ii. THOMAS GASKILL.
iii. JEAN GASKILL.
iv. JANE GASKILL.
v. ELIZABETH GASKILL, m. THOMAS DURANT.


Generation No. 2

2. WILLIAM2 GASKILL (WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1700, and died 1770 in Portsmouth Island, NC. He married ANN JARRETT Abt. 1725, daughter of JOHN JARRETT and CATHERINE. She was born Abt. 1705.

GASKILL
By ELLEN F. CLOUD


Research of The names GASKILL and GASKINS calls for a lot of patience and common sense. These two names were continuously intertwined. One wonders if the two were at one time the same, and because of difference in pronunciation and, or, spelling, they became two separate names. One example is ADAM GASKINS, one of the earliest settlers, was referred to as GASKILL in many documents. This happened to many families as they were called GASKILL and later referred to as a Gaskins.
In Carteret County Reg. of Deeds Book pg the names changes from Gaskins to GASKILL and back to Gaskins several times in the same record.
On the marriage bond of BENJAMINE D. GASKILL (son of William F. GASKILL and SARAH E. OWENS dated located in the Reg. of Deeds office in Swan Quarter, Benjamine is listed as a GASKINS. On the bond his name appears as Benjamine Gaskins three times.
His son Benjamine GASKILL, Jr. married my Grandmother's sister. They had all sons, Gaskills of course and speaking of any one of them my mother distinctly called them Gaskills, but when ever she spoke of their father, she called him Uncle Ben GASKINS. When I questioned her about it, she said "I don't know why but I always called him that," and was quite puzzled about the whole thing. She had never realized that she had been wrong. Talking with other residents I found many people called him Gaskins.
With all these stumbling blocks behind us, I have proven this line as being Gaskills.


The local GASKILL name goes back to a WILLIAM GASKILL of PORTSMOUTH ISLAND. He wrote the will of GEORGE STYRON also of Portsmouth in 1745. It is estimated that he was born about 1700/1705. His wife was ANN JARRETT daughter of JOHN and CATHERINE JARRETT. They were married before 1745 because John Jarrett in his will dated April 13,1745 calls his daughter ANN GASKILL. WILLIAM GASKILL wrote his will in Nov. of 1768. It was probated Dec. 1770. Will Bk D pg 185 Carteret County North Carolina.



Children of WILLIAM GASKILL and ANN JARRETT are:
3. i. ELIZABETH3 GASKILL, b. 1725, Carteret, N.C..
4. ii. WILLIAM GASKILL, b. Abt. 1733; d. 1814.
5. iii. JOHN GASKILL, b. Abt. 1740; d. 1819, Portsmouth Island, Carteret County, NC.
iv. ANN GASKILL, b. Abt. 1745.
v. ESTHER GASKILL, b. Abt. 1749.
6. vi. BENJAMIN GASKILL, b. 1750; d. 1787, Ocracoke, NC.
7. vii. SARAH GASKILL, b. Abt. 1751; d. Carteret, N.C..
8. viii. JACOB GASKILL, b. Abt. 1752.
9. ix. THOMAS GASKILL, b. Abt. 1752.
10. x. JOSEPH GASKILL, b. Abt. 1754; d. 1826.


Generation No. 3

3. ELIZABETH3 GASKILL (WILLIAM2, WILLIAM1) was born 1725 in Carteret, N.C.. She married JOHN WALLACE 1742 in Carteret, N.C., son of ROBERT WALLACE and ESTHER WEST. He was born Abt. 1724 in Carteret, N.C., and died Bef. 1786 in Carteret, N.C..

Notes for JOHN WALLACE:
Other researchers show Elizabeth as the 1st wife of John Wallace of Shell Castle, but this is not the same John Wallace. John Wallace of Shell Castle would have been only 11 years old at the date of this marriage. Elizabeth Gaskill married John Wallace, son of Robert Wallace and Esther West.

Mariner's of The American Revolution, list a John Wallace aboard the "Essex" with Captain Timothy C. Oden. He was captured in June 1781 and committed to Old Mill Prison Aug. 31, 1781. State Papers say he was still there in Jan. 1782. Home office Records show him still there April 1782.

Carteret Co. deed Bk L, pg 23
Sept 20th, 1786, states that he was deceased. (See notes for his daughter Mariam)

I believe this is the John Wallace that married Elizabeth Gaskill and is why we can find no other records of him after this time period.


Child of ELIZABETH GASKILL and JOHN WALLACE is:
i. MARIAM4 WALLACE, b. Abt. 1750; m. JOHN SHEPARD, June 29, 1771, Carteret County, NC.

Notes for MARIAM WALLACE:
In a deed dated 9-20-1786 Mariam Wallace is proven to be the daughter of John Wallace. In this deed her name is spelled Pariam.

Carteret Co. deed Bk L, pg 23
Sept 20th, 1786,
John SHEPARD and PARIAM his wife sells to Joseph WALLACE, JR. for the sum of 16 pounds, conveys a certain piece of land in Carteret County, NC on CORE BANKS, containing 100 acres, being part of a tract of 240 acres, sold by DAVID WALLACE to JOHN WALLACE, by deed dated 25th of May 1768, and by the said JOHN WALLACE Deceased, left to his daughter PARIAM SHEPARD. Bengining at the begining of the said tract at a Bunch of Pellitnerys on the sound side on the south side of White Hill in John Nelson's patent line running S 31 E 128 poles to the sea beach, then to extend so far to the south and west adjoining both the sea and sound as to contain one hundred acres.

CARTERET COUNTY COURT RECORDS
MAY 1808 - WILLIAM GILGO (Orphan) bound to JAMES GASKILL


JAMES GASKILL b. ca 1767\70 d. before Oct. 1837 James was appointed guardian of HANNAH, daughter of his deceased UNCLE BENJAMIN GASKILL, decd. He lived at Portsmouth Island, was "in charge of one of the state's revenue cutters stationed at Ocracoke Inlet" in 1834. "He had a very large family, but didn't hesitate to take in orphan children that needed a home. Not only did he take in Hannah Gaskill in 1801, but in 1808 took in William Gilgo. In the 1810 census he was listed as having seven children under the age of 16. In 1820 he had nine children and in 1830 he was listed as being between the ages of 50 and 60, his new wife was between the age of 30 and 40, also in the home were 5 people between the ages of 20 and 30, 1 -15 to 20, and 1 -10 to 15.

In 1823 JAMES GASKILL sold his house and land, which was the land of his father JOHN GASKILL on Sheep Island (South Portsmouth) to WILLIAM GILGO. JAMES was listed as living in the following places; 1800-Core Banks, 1810Portsmouth, 1820 and 1830 in Straits (Carteret Co.)
JAMES GASKILL was indebted to many people of which some were; JOHN PIKE, of OCRACOKE, BENJAMINE SECONAFS of BEAUFORT, DANIEL W. GASKILL, ISAAC RAMSEY, DR. JAMES W. HUNT, ISRIEL SHELDON, SOLOMON ROBERTS, THOMAS DUDLEY, JOHN FORLAW and PLEASANT GASKILL. He was so concerned about these debts that he appointed JACOB GASKILL Power of Attorney, and signed everything over to him, to protect these creditors when CALEB S. SPENCER and BANNISTER MIDGETT of Chickomomicko filed a bill of equity against him in Hyde Co. Superior Court in Feb. 1834, "for no other cause than to extort from him large and unjust sums of money."
The document states that JAMES is infirmed by his advanced age, poverty renders him unable to pay attorneys, entirely ignorant about law suits and the quibble attending them, has a large and expensive family depending on a scanty support.
He is in charge of one of the eight United States Boats stationed in Pamtico Sound where his presents is always required. He wanted JACOB, after a given date to sell at Auction to pay the above named honest creditors who had been indulgent to him.
At the time these statements were made JAMES GASKILL owned the following; Fifty acres of marsh and forty acres of swamp near Piney Point (Stacy, NC), in Core Sound on Oyster Creek, Fifty acres on Shackleford Banks known as Bells Island, and the following negroes; man ARRON age 30, woman MARGARET and her girl MARY, girl DORCUS age 14, man ISAAC age 40.

***SEE DORCUS GASKILL AND ISAAC GASKILL FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THESE*****



James Gaskill making sure that his idiot son Thomas Gaskill was cared for, appointed son Elijah W. Gaskill his guardian and deeded his property over for his support. This may have taken place around the time of his second marriage.

Thomas Gaskill may have died before 1850 since he isn't listed in the census. James' minor children Anson and Charlotte had come of age by 1853 when Elijah W. Gaskill had the land divided.

Notes for ROSEMOND DAVIS:
Mrs. Thelma Pittman of Davis, NC provided the following document showing that Rosemond was the daughter of Isiah Davis. Since her marriage records state that she was at the time of her marriage a Willis, it looks like she was married before, but no record has been found. The fact that she is ten years older than Anson also suggest she was previously married.

To wife, CHLOE GASKILL, house and houses and land for life, a negro woman, HANNAH, a negro man, AUGUST, also my interest in a schooner named RIVAL. Also one negro woman named MANDY. Two beds and necessary furniture. My canoe, nets, and flat, to use and dispose of at her own will.

This was a long trial and was transferred from Carteret Co. to Hyde Co. in order for Jacob to receive a fair trial. He was convicted of murder but was freed after new evidence was produced in court. I have all of the court records that give details of the shooting but it is too much to print here.
