Military Monday ~ Private William Floyd Gill


Private William Floyd Gill 
Aged 22 years, a son of Mr and Mrs O.P. Gill, was born in Little River County Arkansas.  He registered and was sent to Camp Pike, July 28, 1918 and was assigned to First Training Regiment at that place. 
Previous to entering service this soldier was engaged in farming with his father, O.P. Gill, near Wilton, Arkansas.

William was my husband's 1st great grand uncle; the son of Oliver Perry and Mollie Elizabeth Welch Gill.
