Hi Helen, I don't know if this will help you or not but I live in New Paris, Preble County, Ohio. I live next to where a family of McGill's lived when they came to Ohio from Ky.back abt.,the mid to late 1800's and the house is still here, although it has been remodled many times since i was a young child. There names were Burley,his wife Nannie,a son Forest and a mentally handicaped child named Carl McGill. So you might try looking in some of the Ohio census for some of the McGill's.

I have a Susan McGill who married William Benedict Burch in the 1800's located in I think Hardin county Kentucky. If you feel there might be a connection contact me at

I am trying to obtain more information on the McGill family. Joseph McGill settled in Breckenridge County in the early 1800's (near Hardinsburg). His son Richard inherited the land owned by Joseph. I am looking for information about Richard's children - one of whom was Joseph McGill.
