KIT 36182: Josiah Raines, b.1791 to 1994, married in Wilkes County Ga in 1815 to Sally Carrell. The direct line for my Hill 37 marker exact match leads to direct descendants named Henry Hill b.1730 and a son Abram Hill b. 1778. They resided in 1794 next door to Ignatius Raines (Reigns) on Long Creek in Wilkes County GA. I had believed for many years Ignatius was the father of Josiah Raines. Now I suspect his daughter was the mother of Josiah and either Henry Hill Sr. or his son Abram Hill is the father of Josiah Raines.
Further evidence of the relationship is that Sarah Cotton Hill, daughter of Henry Hill, married into the Woods/Middleton family also of Wilkes County during that time. Josiah had named his first son Middleton Woods Raines. Also Henry Hill sued John Purvis in 1801 in the Spotsylvania District Court, VA using the will of Henry Rains d.1767. Henry Rains the father of Ignatius Rains d. 1799 in Wilkes Country GA, mentioned above. Too much coincidence that the next door neighbor of Josiah Rains was Henry Hill and my 37 marker test. Exactly matches the 37 marker test of a direct decedent of Henry Hill.

KIT 128078: Source: Most of the data on the lines before William Mer(r)iwether HILL are taken from The Hills of Wilkes County, Georgia and Allied Families, by Lodowick Johnson Hill (1922, 1987). Please note that I do not take compiled genealogies at face value as a rule, but this one is exceptional. That’s not to say there are no errors, but It is very well documented and those bits I have had opportunity to verify do hold up. That being said, I have not had much opportunity to work on or verify the earliest generations.

KIT 324188:  Those in our Hill family interested in genealogy have always thought we were descended from Henry Hill & Sarah Cotton/Cotten but none have been able to prove anything beyond Theophilus Hill (my 3X GG, the son of Henry Hill & Sarah Walton). My brother’s DNA test results tell us that we are on the right track. With the help of The Hills of Wilkes County, Georgia and Allied Families book by Lodowick Johnson Hill (1922, 1987), we hope to sort out where our 4X GG Henry Hill & Sarah Walton fit in to the family tree. It is thought he is the son of Henry Hill & Sarah Cotton.
