Hi,

I found the following about Peter:

1860 Palestine, Anderson, Texas
Peter Gillk, b. AL, 40, blacksmith
Mary, wife, b. AL, 27
John, b. TX, 3
Henry, b. TX, 2

Peter Gill, Private
Enlisted: 10 Aug 1861, Palestine, TX
Commanding Officer: P. J. Simons, Capt.
Organization: Res. Inf. Co., Beat 3, Anderson County, 11th Brigade, TM
Source: Texas Muster Roll Index Cards 1838-1900

Peter J Gill
Sketch of Life in "Biographical History of Milam, Williamson, Bastrop, Travis, Lee and Burleson Counties", pgs 679-681.

If you can't find this book online, contact your local library and if they don't have a copy, request one via inter-library transfer.

Peter Gill
born: 8 July 1825, Alabama
Died: 14 April 1870, Milam Co., TX (but no source cited)

Mary Elizabeth Boles Gill
Born: 1833 Alabama
Died: 1874, Milam Co., TX (but no source cited)
Source: Ancestry.com

Most larger public libraries provide free access to Ancestry if you have a local library card.

I checked all of the Milam County Cemeteries that are online but didn't find either person.

Tombstone Transcription Project Milam Co., www.usgwtombstones.org/texas/milam.html

USGenWeb Milan Co Archives, www.usgwarchives.net/tx/milam/cemetery.htm

Milam County Texas Cemetery Surveys, http://jamesdavidwalker.com/cemlist.htm

Cemeteries of Milam County Texas, www.cemeteries-of-tx.com/Etx/Milam/ListMilam.html

You can contact the Milam County Clerk and ask if their death records go back to 1870 and 1874. However death certificates don't always say where the person was buried.

You can contact the Milam County Historical Commission, www.milamcountyhistoricalcommission.org/ and ask if they have any other ideas on how to find where they're buried. Successful Searching!
