Re: Gershom BILLS--Marshall Co., TN
I'm late getting in on this, but here is some info. that you may or may not have.
Gersham Bills (b 17 Oct 1767, Monmouth Co NJ, d. 18 Sept 1847.) married to Mary Hutchins (b. 20 Jan 1771)
This Gersham was the son of Daniel Gersham Bills (b. 28 Sept 1740, Monmouth Co NJ, d. 18 Mar 1829, Maury Co. TN) and Deborah Denman (b. 28 Dec 1745, Shrewsbury NJ, d. 26 June 1819, Marshall Co TN) Their other children, as I have them, are William (my 4G Grandfather), Hannah, Elizabeth, Sarah, Richard, Isaac, Rachel, Patience, Daniel, John Denman, Thomas.
This family moved to NC @ 1774, and are found in the 1790 Surry Co census. members of the Kingswood Monthly Meeting in NJ, New Garden MM, Guilford, NC, moved to TN @ 1819.
Back to Gersham and Mary Hutchins Bills, I don't have much on their children, but have an Amos and another Daniel G., and an Alcy (b. 17 July 1796, d. 14 May 1863 in Dallas (?) MO.) This Alcy married James E. Jones.
There are at least three Alcy/Alcey/Alce/Alsey Bills out there, one of whom married my 4G Grandfather, John Jennings in NC.
I have more if you want it.
