I’m Rick Gaskell and have been researching my gg grandfather, Benjamin Gaskill. ( Not sure when the spelling was changed. ) Born in New York in 1821 and died of illness contracted during the Civil War. Was a member of the 177th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. Trying to find his parents, and I’ve found a few inconsistencies in what I found. He may be descended from the Gaskill family that was in the city of Richmond, Cheshire County, New Hampshire. Looking forward to connecting with others on Wikitree.
