There is a connection between the Earle family and the Gill family, but I have no idea what it could be and hoped you might have a clue.
Samuel Earle of Anderson, SC left land and money to the first three children of John Lumpkin Gill of Elyton, Jefferson, AL.
The Earle family of Jefferson, like those in SC, were prominent citizens.
Peter Gill b.1825 AL is our line. He left Alabama for Texas where his first child was born in McLennan Co. 1856/58. I see that there was a prominent Earle family there as well.
Peter had an older brother, Henry, b.abt 1822 that also came to Texas and died there before 1880.
Do you know of any Gill connection to the Waco Earle family?
Thanks. Grasping at straws!!!
