Re: William McGill Gill Hall

In Reply to: Re: William McGill Gill Hall by Keith McGill of 1608

Michael and Keith--

Please be careful. I have only speculated that William McGill came to the Forks of the Allegheny with Col. Spencer's NJ regiment. There is no hard proof.

Also, I never said that McGill got the land at Gill Hall in reward for his service. There are no donation land plots ascribed to him in the PA Archives.

Many of the residents of old Mifflin Township came to the area from Virginia and settled on Virginia land grants. Others came to the area from PA points east. McGill takes out his land warrant and is granted it based on settlement.

Finally, McGill's only 100% proven service is to the Allegheny County Militia during the Whiskey Rebellion. He served in various positions-- and finally as Captain of the First Company of the First Battalion.

Mary
