My ggrandfather Alexander Paton GILL was born in 1841 in
Belmont Co., OH married Victoria SPELMAN of Franklin Co.
OH have children and moved to Warren Co., IA before the
1870 census. His wife died and he remarried my
ggrandmother Cora Ella WOOD and had children. Their last
child born was my grandmother Cora Ella GILL who was born
24 April 1886.
Alexander married Mary Sophia ELLENWOOD and had daughter
Blanche Irene 6 Dec. 1890. Alexander died in 1899, Mary
Sophia in 1896. Both died and are buried in Loyal,
Kingfisher Co., OK.
Alexander filed on 160 acres on Oct. 23, 1894 Sec. 4 Twp
17 Rg 9. He got the land from a James F. GILL who filed
May 7, 1892. The Loyal Cemetery is in Sec 1 of Twp 17, Rg
9 and may be where they are buried. The Federal Tract
Book states he filed for Final Certificate on Dec. 14,
1901 which may have been accomplished after his death by
a relative. There must have been other GILLs who settled
there as there is a George A. GILL, Frank GILL, James F.
along with Alexander.
Would it be possible for you to get copies of any
information regarding Alexander Patton GILL? I would
greatly appreciate your help. Also, since he died in
Kingfisher Co., his will would have probably been
