The McGill family of Clover has returned a missing headstone to the grave of ancestor Capt. William McGill, a Congressman and York County magistrate who was born in 1775 and died in 1868. The family received the headstone from a man hired to clear the property of a monument company that went out of business. The worker found the broken headstone, which was being used as a stepping stone and contacted the family through a geneology website. Tracy Kimball Rock Hill Herald
