  • The following information has been provided by David R Gill of NY:

    Richard and his family emigrated to America in April 1841.
    The manifest of the Ship Constantine, from Liverpool to New Orleans, arriving 7 April 1841 incuded the following in the passenger list :
    Rich Gill 48 male Farmer
    Betsey Gill 55 Female
    Hannah Gill 26 Female
    Jonathon Gill 22 male Labourer
    Andrew Gill 20 male
    Mary Gill 18 female
    Wright Gill 14 male
    Wm Gill 12 male
    John Gill 27 female (sic)
    Rachell Gill 23 male (sic)
    Mary Gill 5 mths female.

    The family followed the Mississippi River to Cass County, IL.

    David also believes that Mary, b 1840, should infact be Henry:
    It is odd that John Gill is listed as female and Rachel Gill is listed as male and Henry is listed as female 5 months old with the name Mary. Do you suppose that is because of their accent? In the 1850 Federal Census, Henry was listed as Emily. Does that sound like "Enery"? I am trying to guess how John and Rachel would have spoken Henry's name.
