Arthur Gordon Bill was born 29 May 1856 in Chaplin, Connecticut, the son of Lester Bill (1807-1881) and Mary Gooddell (1816-1910). In 1860, Arthur was living on a farm with his parents and four siblings; the family had real estate valued at $4,500 and a personal estate of $2,000. Arthur’s father specialized in breeding oxen and cattle. Arthur was a student at Woodstock Academy and attended Killingly High School. He graduated from Yale Law School in 1877. He set up practice in Danielson, Windham County, Connecticut in 1877, forming a partnership with Edward Cundall. On 11 August 1880, Arthur married Lillian Estelle Chase (1856-1918) and the couple had three children. Cundall & Bill operated until 1885 when Edward Cundall passed away; thereafter, Bill practiced law in Danielson by himself. Although his practice was in Danielson, Bill and family were living in Killingly for the 1880 through 1910 censuses. Arthur served for 12 years as Judge of Probate, and was the Windham coroner starting in 1885. Following Lillian’s death, Arthur married Cora Belle Stoddard (born circa 1863) in August 1919. In the 1920 and 1930 censues, the couple was living in Danielson. Arthur Gordon Bill passed away on 15 August 1935.
