Let me begin thanking you for your actions, which spoke volumes. Let me continue by introducing and or reintroducing myself to one and all. The given European Christian name is irrelevant.  M'lilwana Osanku is the chosen name.  I’m born in New Amsterdam, Berbice. My siblings, children of Muriel E. Sancho , in order of their birth are George, Hamilton, Mariette, Compton, Cheryl and Colin. George, Hamilton, and Cheryl were born in Nabaclis. This Ross family, member of the Sancho clan, was resident in the Golden Grove – Nabaclis area, for a number of years, until maturity and economic opportunities suggest they reside elsewhere.
The Golden Grove –Nabaclis area, is the adopted home of the Sanchos as their surviving story indicates.
Now bear with me as I continue by adding, the Guyanaca.com article a Profile of Nabaclis, which I posted was a catalysts, a battery charger, If I may, in the developing the idea of a forum, to discuss issues relative and affecting the Golden Grove –Nabaclis area. I found the article inept, juvenile, and not at all reflecting the articulate and the intellectual, who call the area, home. It did not touch on sports, education, music, religion, the slave masters, and the ethnic groups who resided there.

Identifying Gill Lineage - Descendants of Sancho

I believe it's best to chat about the Gill people from the migration from Barbados to Demerara to the known members of Buxton and Friendship and thus to Golden Grove, Nabaclis and Haslington and their movement beyond Guyana in the twentieth century. 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.
