Bible of William C. Gill

Family Bible of William C. Gill

William C. Gill's Family Bible is in the possession of John Gibson Baker, 2nd Great Grandson of Robert G. Gill and Martha Horn Pridgeon. Gibson is a descendant of Burmah, daughter of William C. He was born in 1915, lives in west Texas and is still an active business man. The Bible was passed to Burmah after the death of William C.
