  • I'm a direct decendent of James Gill, a former slave who was born on the Bellefonte plantation(near Huntsville Alabama) which was owned by Col. James L White. Around 1860, his family was transfered to another plantation in Phillips County, Arkansas. 1860 Slave Schedules show that the Arkansas Plantation was owned by William Y.C. and Tom Wilson White(sons of Col. White). Are you familiar with the "Slave Narratives"....2000 interviews of former slaves that were conducted in the mid '30s? James Gill was was actually one of the interviewees!! You can find his interview here on or just google "James Gill, Marvell Arkansas". He talks about his love for Tom White and his son. Also, if you'd like to see a picture of him, check out "The Gill Family Tree" on facebook. (1)
