I am related to a BILL family originating in NY. They were located in Pike County, IL 1850 through 1870, and then scattered to MN, CO and CA. I do not know for certain what county they were from in NY, but I just found the following records at the Bureau of Land Management - General Land Office Records; a homestead patent issued to Alden Bill 8/15/1889 in Morrison County, MN. another to Arthur Bill heir to James (desceased) in Henderson County, IL, and then Indiana: Aug 1 1839, Sullivan County, Indiana, "Arthur Fields Bill of Oneida Co. NY". My family's Bill given names are Sarah (Greene; mother,b. MA) Arthur, Alden, Juliet, Ann Eliza, and Mahlon all born in NY. Arthur's wife was born in Indiana, and they were probably married around 1843 in Indiana. Please let me know if this helps.
