The descendants of William Lee Gill and Audie Painter Gill gathered for a Gill reunion last Saturday at the beautiful home of Mark and Dana Harrison. About 40 family members attended. William and Audie Gill had 10 children: Linda Gill Tamor, William “Daniel” Gill, Marjorie Gill Miller (dec.), Richard Gill, Wyman Gill (dec.), Marie Gill Webb, Patricia Gill Perdue, Cynthia “Cindy” Gill Reynolds, Perry Gill (dec.), and the youngest of the bunch is my father, William “Earl” Gill. Aunt Linda, Uncle Daniel, Uncle Richard, Aunt Cindy, Aunt Marie and my father were all at the meeting. Uncle Richard came by train from Washington State to be there!

Aunt Mary Lou Gill, Uncle Daniel’s wife, introduced everyone to the history of the Gill family. After many hours of genealogical research, she traced ancestors back to the 1700s. It was very interesting. Cousin Loralyn Gill DeRoche hosted family trivia games where everyone could learn about the Gill siblings’ childhood.

We had lots of food, laughs and memories were made.
