Gills from upstate New York

My mother was born " VERA CLAIRE GILL " on 2-6-1922 in Corinth, New York and was the only child of JAMES & MARTHA (WINSLOW) GILL. My grandparents were both from STONY CREEK, NEW YORK. JAMES had a brother by the name of SCHUYLER CHESTER GILL. Their parents were CHESTER & PHEBE (AUSTIN) GILL.
I really would like to find and contact any children or grandchildren of SCHUYLER GILL. I read in an old newspaper article of my parent's ( ROBERT & VERA (GILL) BEST) wedding that SCHUYLER walked my mother down the asile and gave her away because her father (JAMES A. GILL) had passed away.
My parents were both only children so since I never had an aunt, uncle or cousin, the family of SCHUYLER GILL would be the my nearest relatives (other than my brother, sister, and all our children) that is still living. It just would be nice to know them.
Thank you for letting me post this message
