Soliciting Information -
Gill of Guyana and Barbados. I am really focusing on the Sancho lineage. 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. Ms. Gill is the mother of Edith Gill,
Irene Gill, Winnie Gill, Arthur Gill, Iris Gill, Oscar Gill, and Princess Gill.
