The biographer of Joseph Medill the owner publisher of the Chicago Tribune and mayor of Chicago in 1871 and a significant member of the Republican Party, as well as being a proponent of the emancipation of slaves in the 1860's, said that the Madll family were Huguenots and that means they were from France ergo they were of French decent.
William Madill married Margaret Corbett c. 1818 in Ireland and susquently moved to Queens County NewBrunswick. Joseph Madill was born on Lot # 8 on the Lawfield Road, Queens County, New Brunswick, Canada in 1823. In 1834 he and his family, who spelled their name Madill while in N.B., moved to Ohio and thence to Chicago.
