I had previously known that Edward Manning Bill had spent many years in Australia as a Baptist missionary (his father was the Baptist Reverend I. E. Bill, his brother Ingraham Bill, jr. was a missionary in New Zealand), but I do not know his wife, marriage information, etc.Would like to know the details of his life in Australia, it sounds like he was under great deprivation.
