McGill Family that settled in Illinois
Posted by: Julie Judd (ID *****6100) Date: October 08, 2007 at 08:56:49
  of 1608


Family legend states that Wheeler McGill had his own little moonshine business and left Illinois to head west to avoid prosecution and settled in Idaho. Later, his brother Luther McGill followed and we descend from his son, Inamn Edgar McGill.

We have also believed that John H. McGill settled in Idaho after receiving a piece of land for serving in the War of 1812.

If any of this can be confirmed or disputed, I would love to hear form you. The family genealogy shows the following for our line:

Inman Edgar McGill
b: 3 Dec 1918 in Illinois
m: Hellen Port 4 May 1951 in Nevada
d: 15 Jun 1955 in Idaho

Luther McGill
b: 3 Jan 1897 in Illinois
m: Ada Maude Betts on 23 May 1917 in Illinois
d: 8 Dec 1976 in Idaho

John Featherstone McGill
b: 30 Dec 1859 in Illinois
m: Mary Caroline Johnson on 22 Feb 1885 in Illinios
d: 5 Aug 1932 in Illinois

Samuel McGill
b: 28 Apr 1827
m: Cla(or 'e')rinda A. O. Leathers 11 Jul 1858 in Illinois
d: 29 Dec 1917 in Illinois

John H. McGill
b: about 1789 in possibly South Carolina
m: Rachel Lusk
d: 10 Mar 1859 in Illinois

I have just started working this line, if you have any information that would be helpful, it would be most appreciated! Thanks, Julie
