I just saw your message on the post board and thought I would see if you and I have a connection, which I think we do.
My great grandfather was Milton McDill who was a son of James McDill who was a son of John McDill,Sr. & Jane Bell. John was a son of John McDill who married a Janet Chestnut and this last John's parents were John and Janet Leslie Chestnut. Thus if I have it figured correctly John and Janet Chestnut McDill would be my great grandfather's great, great grandparents. If you would care to contact me maybe we could exchange info and pursue this family together. I have pictures of John McDill, Sr. grave in the Old Bethel Cemetery in Sparta, IL and next to him is one of his sons - another John. I hope to hear from you. e-mail me at email@example.com
