"Long removed from our native shores and bereft of all cultural connections. We yet have the capacity and yearning for African culture. We therefore regard you as an ambassador of good will in whose train will follow a reestablishment of those ties that have so long been severed.

Please convey to your people our greetings and good will. Tell them that though we love the land that sustains us, the judgement hour must first be high. Ere! Africa our motherland shall vanish from our souls.

I need to be enlightened.  I am soliciting information on the lineage of the kinship of GILL. I need to identify the Sancho ancestor of the members of the kinship of Gill, mentioned below. I am referring to Gill of Buxton-Friendship and their off springs - Arthur Gill and his descendants – of Golden Grove-Nabaclis.  The known members of this Gill kinship of Gill includes; Susan Elizabeth Gill died on Sunday, November 27, 1938.  Ms. Gill was 91 years old.
