I just came across a small thread of information in the History of the Town of Antrim, NH with regards to the last name of my gr gr gr grandmother. From the 1850 and 1860 census of Bennington, NH I know she was likely born in either 1813 or 1817. Does this name sound familiar to anyone?
1. WILLIAM A. Gillis, [b. Jan. 3, 1803, m. Dorcas Pattee of Methuen, Mass. Has lived in Bennington, NH since 1831.]
