KIT 161061: James Hill was born about 1741 in Virginia and died in 1831 in Amherst County, VA. His birth date is derived from an obituary published in the Lynchburg Virginian on February 14, 1831 (died on Feb. 2 at his residence in Amherst in his 90th year, a soldier in the Revolution). He married Anne Overton. An early record of James Hill in Amherst County is a 1776 Court Order appointing him as overseer of the Harris Creek Road. Following Revolutionary War Service, he purchased 268 acres of land in 1780 along the headwaters of Rutledge Creek. James Hill’s will and codicil were read and presented in Amherst in June 1831.

KIT 170224: Captain John Hill b/ca 1744 d:/1801 in Amherst County, VA. The first record of John Hill in Amherst County is for an impressed property claim of 16 October 1780. There is no record of his ever owning land in Amherst County. He rented land from Colonel Edward Carter’s estate (Albemarle County) in the northern part of Amherst County in the same area where his children and their spouses lived. He is listed on the tax lists of 1783, 1785 and 1800 and the first census of 1790. Since the tax list of 1783 and census of 1790 show him with eleven blacks and the 1800 tax lists 4 blacks, John Hill must have rented a fairly large estate. He was recommended as Captain of the County Militia by the Amherst County June Court of 1780 and qualified as Captain in the September Court of that year. His resignation from the County Militia was noted in Court action of 2 June 1783. He named a son Taliaferro and two of his grandsons were named John Taliaferro, so it is probable that John Hill’s wife’s maiden name was Taliaferro (this is pronounced Tolliver or Toliver and those spelling are often used in records). The only known marriage of a John Hill to a Tolliver is recorded in a baptism in the Dover Church of Goochland County, Virginia where John Hill and Peggie Tolliver had a daughter named Betty baptized 22 February 1770. The grandson of John Hill, John Taliaferro Hill (Taliaferro Hill’s son), stated that he was named for a great uncle John Taliaferro of Caroline County, Virginia. John Hill died in Amherst County about September of 1801 per administration bonds posted 21 September 1801. Two of his children, Elizabeth and Susannah, had guardians appointed indicating they were still minors. The known children of John Hill all married in Amherst county, Va. They were: Ann Hill m/Reuben Banks on 4 Nov 1783; Mary Hill m/Mark Lively on 30 Nov 1791; Taliaferro Hill m/Nancy Woodruff on 20 Dec 1797; John Hill, Jr. m/Genny Watts on 30 Nov 1793; Washington Hill m/Sally Higginbotham on 20 Jul 1803; Susannah Hill m/Joseph Swanson on 19 Sep 1806.

Kit #219085: I. Y. Hill of Amherst County, Va. (b: bef 1745) m/Sarah Judith Bailey. She was the daughter of Samuel Bailey and Augusta Parks Bailey. Together they had two sons Samuel C. Hill and William Hill. Both sons fought at the Battle of Guilford County Courthouse in 1781. This means that they were at least 16 years old and were thus born before 1765. Backing off 21 years from 1761, gives an estimated birth date of before 1745 for I.Y. Hill. Some people think that I.Y. Hill may be the son of Isaac Hill who married Margaret Jennings. Of interest is that (3) Judith Parks Hill married her 1st cousin (3) John Waddy Hill. A must read for anyone researching this family is Judith Parks America Hill’s A History of Henry County.

Ashby Goss(1906-1991) m Christine May Johnson and had one child Ashby Wayne Hill (1946 in Richmond-living) 3 Welby S (1909-1933 single) In 1734 James Hill of St Peter’s New Kent bought 200A in Louisa (then Hanover) then deeded the land to John Hill & Tabitha Bailey, which they sold in 1748, bought (1748) & sold(1754) a tavern in Louisa on the Goochland line, and on 22 May 1757 had a son Samuel:Parks Hill. The middle name isn’t in any other Samuel records but the 1757 date fits with later tithable records and war record. In Southern Families, the world tree & many trees on Nancy Tate is listed as probably d. before 1801 since on 4 Dec 1801 a Samuel Hill m. Polly Peay in Louisa. However, both Nancy Tate’s parents died in 1807, Samuel & Nancy inherited land & slaves, in 1808 they sold the land( to John Graves; in 1813 had to undo the sale) as multiple estate lawsuits listed both thru 1810 & then Samuel only thru 1817. I have found no record of Polly Peay Hill in Va after 1801 and many Peays moved to KY & SC. She is a probable descendant of Austin Peay; John & Miley (Mildred?) Peay wit. her marriage.
