The Autobiography of Charles F. Gill
This is the autobiography of Charles Franklin Gill, Jr. beginning in 1835 when the Gills and Haynes arrived in Richwood, Ohio and played a major role in the establishment and administration of the community. It continues with the arrival of the Foxes and LeMasters from West Virginia and the union of those two families. My story tells of my birth, childhood, moving to Reno, Nevada, college, Vietnam, and later my life in Saratoga, California as a businessman. I have included an extensive appendix containing articles in the Union County History archives and family trees of the Gills, Haynes, Foxes and LeMasters families. Part I is largely historical. I have attempted to make it readable with lots of photos. Part II is my story and I will let it speak for itself. These anecdotes and stories are derived from the sources stated in the appendixes as well as my own life experiences.
