    • Searching for information on Green B. HILL, who lived in Randolph Co. AL about 1854, and died1856-58 in Graham, AL, (buried in Gold Ridge Cemetery). Green B. HILL was born circa 1775 at VA; married Martha IVEY, daughter of Lott IVEY and Winifred (--?--), circa 1795. Children of Green B. HILL and Martha IVEY were as follows: Burton B. HILL (unproven), Winifred HILL, Martha HILL, William HILL, Mary A. HILL, Elizabeth HILL, Isariah HILL, Ivy HILL, John Anderson HILL, and Martin HILL who married (1) Sarah Ann TOMLIN; married (2) Sarah C. HANSON, and was a Baptist minister in Cleburne Co. AL about 1880. Green B. HILL and Martha IVEY were thought to have been married in Pendleton, SC about 1795. They later lived in Franklin Co. GA, Jasper Co. GA, Fayette Co. GA, and finally to Randolph Co. AL. Please contact Byron HILL, P.O. Box 120603, Nashville, TN 37212. GBH333@aol.com

      THE WESTERN MIGRATION OF THE FAMILIES OF GREEN B. HILL AND LOTT IVEY
      Copyright 1999 by Byron Hill
      The western migration of the families of Green B. HILL and Lott IVEY began just prior to 1800, from the area Surry Co. NC, to Pendleton, SC, and into Franklin Co. GA, Jasper Co. GA and beyond. It is thought that by studying the census records, tax records, court records, deeds, etc., and movement of other families associated with the HILLs and IVEYs along the way, some light might be shed on the parentage of Green B. HILL. I have arranged the following data into a timeline beginning in Surry Co. NC, of key dates with comments on people and events of those dates:
      1782
      Lott IVEY appears on the Surry Co. NC tax list in Captain Gain's District.
      1783
      Lott IVEY purchased land on "Connerose Creek" (now Coneross Creek) in Pendleton, SC. This is two to four miles SW of where Walhalla, SC (now Oconee County) is today. IMPORTANT NOTE: Lott Ivey did not move to Pendleton, SC as of the date of this land purchase.
      1784
      Lott IVEY appears in the census of Surry Co. NC, which was compiled between the years 1784 and 1787. It is seems that the above deed was done while he was in transition, and he had possibly left his family in Surry Co. NC while he purchased land in Pendleton. On February 16, 1784 Joseph WINSTON was appointed to survey 240 acres of land on the Tarrarat River (now Ararat River) in Surry Co. NC for Lott IVEY. This was probably land that he was speculating buying.
      Also in 1784, Franklin Co. GA was formed from ceded Indian lands. The county seat was and is still Carnesville, GA. Many original records still exist.
      1787
      Reference is made in a deed to improvements that Lott IVEY made on land earlier on the waters of Snow Creek and Crooked Creek. This mention was Deed #258 Issued in Surry Co. NC on July 28, 1787, but the actual land is located about 4 miles NE of Danbury, NC (now Stokes Co.). This deed indicates that Lott IVEY lived there sometime prior to 1787. Stokes Co. NC was formed from Surry Co, in 1789.
      1789
      On May 18, 1789, Lott IVEY was granted by the State of North Carolina 250 acres in Surry Co. on the Tarrarat River (now Ararat River), witnesses were Thomas WOOTEN and John IVEY. This is some 18-25 miles west of the land he previously owned on Snow Creek and Crooked Creek. On the same date, there was recorded a deed in Surry Co. NC for Joseph WALDRUN who also was granted land on the "Bull Run Waters of the Tarrarat River" (now Ararat River). This is possibly of great importance to Green B. HILL researchers because of the fact that Joseph WALDRUN was enumerated eleven years later (1800) one household apart from our "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) in Pendleton, SC. This seems very coincidental that Lott IVEY would live very near Joseph WALDRUN in 1789 and "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) would live one household apart from WALDRUN in 1800. At this same place in Surry Co., the "Bull Run Waters of the Tarrarat River" (now Ararat River), (see below in 1792) was a Thomas HILL (son of William Hill of Fisher's Creek, Surry Co.) transacting land with a James HILL (his brother) as a witness. Note also that Joseph WALDRUN was listed in the 1784-1787 census of Surry Co. NC with Lott IVEY and more specifically in Captain HUMPHRIES's District with a Richard HILL (who later, in 1795, was mentioned with George WATKINS as bordering on 400 acres transacted by a George WATKINS on the "Arrarat" River and "Bull Run").
      Today the "Bull Run Waters of the Tarrarat River" (now Ararat River) begins exactly 4 miles west of the town of Pilot Mountain, in Surry Co. NC, land that extends NE between Bull Run Creek and the Ararat River for about 4 miles. This area of land between these two waters averages about 2 miles wide. The area of Fisher's Creek and Fisher River and the location of deeds in the area appears to be near the county seat of Dobson, about 8 miles west of the Bull Run/Tarrarat River area.
      So, in this short timeframe (1789-1795), we had the Lott IVEY, John IVEY, Thomas HILL, James HILL, Richard HILL, and Joseph WALDRUN all transacting land in a small area between Bull Run Creek and the Tarrarat River (now Ararat River).
      1790
      If the handwritten 1790 census list is representative of the physical location of homes or acreage, Lott IVEY and John IVEY are listed as living adjacent to each other in Pendleton, SC. Lott IVEY's household contained 2 males over 16 years old, 3 males under 16 years old, and 5 females. A close look at the original handwritten census documents reveals that the Pendleton census was in some way divided into areas or divisions that came under the control of one person (probably the person who gathered the information). Unlike other censuses, there did not seem to be any formal district under any officerís name, but there are clear spaces in the handwritten census that divide sections or areas, with each section or smaller list beginning with the name of an officer or person. Lott and John IVEY are in a portion of the census under Captain William PERKINS, which contained 129 families. There were no other HILLs in the IVEYs immediate area by list, but it is difficult to know from the handwritten census how exactly geographic the listings are. It appears that they were basically sections of the county bordering other sections, therefore one person could live very close to someone in another officerís area.
      On August 18, 1790 a James HILL and wife Mary of Wilkes Co. GA sold 200 acres on Russells Creek, waters of the Broad River in Franklin Co. GA, an area known as "Nances Town", to Robert SHIPLEY of Franklin Co., land originally granted to James HILL by Georgia Governor Edward Telfair, who's term was from November 1789-1793, indicating that this land had only been owned by James HILL for a short while. Witnesses to the deed were: James FREEMAN and Richard JONES. This could be a very important deed when the following is considered. Though there was a James HILL who appeared later in the 1800 census of Pendleton with "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL), this James however seems to have been west of Pendleton much earlier, and was an original landowner in Franklin Co. GA prior to 1790. I donít have the date of which this James HILL was originally granted land in Franklin Co. GA, and that date may not be important. What is important though is that the deed above is witnessed by James FREEMAN. James FREEMAN was an early settler of Franklin Co. GA and owned land along what was called Freemanís Creek, waters of the Broad River, the area where Lott IVEY and John IVEY settled and stayed for many years. The link between this James HILL and James FREEMAN seems very important because of James FREEMANís later dealings with Lott IVEY and John IVEY.
      Sometime between 1790 and 1798, Lott IVEY and John IVEY moved to Franklin Co. GA, adjacent to the same area that James HILL had previously sold land to James FREEMAN. As of October 1, 1798 Lott IVEY is shown on the Franklin Co. GA tax list as owning a home valued at $10 dollars and had 300 acres with no slaves. John IVEY is listed there as well with one home valued at $20 dollars, 138 acres, and no slaves. The deed in which John IVEY purchased the 138 acres mentioned above is oddly dated February 12, 1799, recorded in 1803. This land was on both sides of Freemanís Creek adjacent CALL, FREEMAN, and CLEVELAND. Witnesses were Mal. (Major?) JONES, Moses SANDERS. Lott IVEYís deed is dated on June 7, 1799 showing his purchase of 200 acres from WIATT (Wyatt) CLEVELAND on Freemanís Creek, waters of the Broad River, adjacent to James FREEMAN. Witnesses were James FREEMAN and Ann WILLIAMS. The Lott IVEY deed shows the same acreage that he is listed with later, but the previous tax list showed him with 300 acres, which may have been a mistake. The odd thing here that the Tax List was done four months before the date of John IVEYís deed, and seven months before the date of Lott IVEYís deed. The fact that the tax list shows the exact same acreage for John IVEY as the deed, there must have been a filing delay or processing delay for the deed, causing the deed date to show after the tax date. I have noted for future research some other names appearing on the 1798 Franklin Co. tax list that include Elijah SPARKS, Jacob BURTON, Benjamin BARTON (who appeared in the 1790 and 1800 Pendleton, SC censuses), Joel CRANE, Neal CRANE, Benjamin ECHOLS, Joseph EDWARDS (who may be the same Joseph EDWARDS in the 1800 Pendleton SC census), Moses GUEST (who has to be the same Moses GUEST who appears in the 1790 Pendleton census and who appears in the exact same district with "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) in the 1800 Pendleton census), Jesse HILL, Edward ISHAM, Joseph JONES, Josiah KANADY, James MONTGOMERY (who is probably not the same James MONTGOMERY who appears in the 1790 Pendleton census, but is probably the same one who appears in the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census), Samuel MORGAN, Joseph MARTIN (who is probably the same Joseph MARTIN who appears in the Pendleton census of 1790 and 1800), Daniel MORGAN, many PAYNE families, James REED (who is likely to be the same one who appeared in the 1790 and 1800 Pendleton, SC censuses), William RAMSEY (who may have been the same William RAMSEY of Surry Co. NC appearing on Land deeds as a surveyor of property for a William HILL, and is definitely the same William RAMSEY who's family married into the Moses GUEST family), and Joseph SEWELL.
      1792
      On November 10, 1792, three possibly related deed was recorded that connects HILLs in Surry Co. NC with HILLs in Wilkes Co. GA (see James HILL above). (1) The first deed was recorded in Surry Co. NC Deed Book F, where Thomas HILL "of Wilkes Co. GA" transacted with Jacob HILL for 140 acres on both sides of Fisherís River, adjacent to John HILL, and James HILL and mentions their father "now deceased" William HILL. (2) Thomas HILL "of Wilkes Co. GA" to James HILL, 140 acres, survey made by William RAMSEY. (3) Thomas HILL "of Wilkes Co. GA" to John HILL, 100 acres. These three deeds represent all 380 acres that the father William HILL purchased from James and Catherine BRYSON in 1789, deed witnessed by Thomas HILL. Other researchers of this line say that this was the older brother Thomas dividing up the estate. These were brothers Jacob, John and James and Thomas. All three deeds were witnessed by J. Mackey, John Watson, and Matthew M. SIMS. Is it possible that the brother James HILL mentioned in this deed with Thomas HILL "of Wilkes Co. GA" is also the James HILL of Wilkes Co. GA? Previously, in 1789, this William HILL "of Surry" was alive and located on Fisher's River by a deed witnessed by Thomas HILL. Of possible great importance to Green B. HILL researchers is that this Thomas HILL on October 22, 1792 transacted land on the Bull Run waters of the Tarrarat River (now Ararat River), a deed recorded in Deed Book F of Surry Co. NC and witnessed by a James HILL. Remember (see above), that Lott IVEY owned land on the Bull Run Waters of the Tarrarat River (now Ararat River) in 1789, as did Joseph WALDRUN, the man that was Green HILL's one household away neighbor in 1800 Pendleton, SC. Of possibly lesser importance, if there was a James HILL "of Wilkes Co. GA" in 1790, and a Thomas HILL "of Wilkes Co. GA" in 1792, were they related? Also note that in the first tax list of Wilkes Co. GA (1792-1794) there was a Thomas HILL in Captain Elsbury's District with 300 acres, and 400 acres in Franklin Co. GA. With him in that district was a John HILL with 200 acres.
      Further information provided by Winifred JACOB from Jeff BRADLEY's research clarifies the following information about the HILL family of Fisher's Creek, Surry Co. NC.
      -A William HILL purchased the first property of any HILL on Fisher River on January 20, 1789.
      -This William HILL cannot be William HILL, Sr. (who was deceased by February 1787) who married a SMITHER(S) or their son Rev. William HILL (who was deceased by February 1785) who married a HALBERT.
      -This William HILL was deceased by November 10, 1792.
      -This William HILL is the father of a Jacob, James, and John, and probably Thomas because Thomas was selling William's land after William's death, and was probably the elder brother and his heir.
      -This Thomas HILL owned additional property in Surry Co. NC per the October 2, 1792 deed.
      -This Thomas HILL was residing in Wilkes Co. GA by October 2, 1792.
      -John HILL, son of this William, died between December 1, 1795 and October 31, 1796.
      -Subsequent land transactions by a Joab HILL indicate that he may be related to either son Jacob or James. There is no evidence that this Joab HILL was a son of William HILL or the son of Rev. William HILL.
      1793
      Lott IVEY purchased land in Pendleton Co. SC. This was mentioned in a Burwell GREEN deed.
      1795
      On December 29, 1795 Lott IVEY sold to Jehu IVEY (thought to be John IVEY) 106 acres on "Connorose Creek" (now Coneross Creek), waters of the Keowee Creek, land that was granted to Lott IVEY on December 2, 1793.
      1798
      John IVEY sold to Burwell GREEN 106 acres on both sides of the "Conorose Creek" (now Coneross Creek), land which was conveyed by Lott IVEY to John IVEY on January 25, 1796.
      1800
      "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) appears for the first time in the Pendleton, SC census. Two of Green B. HILLís immediate neighbors; Joseph WALDRUN, and Littleton MEEKS (who married Elizabeth IVEY, the daughter of John IVEY), have proven ties to Surry Co. NC. This Joseph WALDRUN owned land on the Bull Run Waters of the Tarrarat River (now Ararat River) in 1789, and Littleton MEEKS was the son of William MEEKS, who was granted land on the Tarrarat River (now Ararat River) in Surry Co. NC in 1784. Meanwhile, in Franklin Co. GA, the following persons appear in Captain Hendersonís District: M. HILL (with 100 acres), Jehew IVY, Anderson IVY, Lott IVEY, John IVEY (with 130 acres), J. HILL (with 400 acres), Samuel MORGAN, and others. The identity of M. HILL and J. HILL are not known. In Captain Rollin Corneliusí District a William HILL appears. It is unknown as to if this is the same William HILL who appeared earlier in the 1790 Pendleton, SC census. Also in Corneliusí District were W. ASHER (who is probably William ASHER who appeared in the 1790 Pendleton, SC census), and B. Echols, B. Echols, and others. William HILL, son of Green B. HILL claimed to have been born in Surry Co. NC in November of 1800, but this fact confuses things with Green B. HILL and family being in Pendleton, SC in 1800 or possibly earlier. It is possible that William HILL thought he was born in Surry Co. NC because his motherís (Martha IVEY) family had lived there prior to 1790.
      1801
      In Captain William Smithís District there is a James HILL (who may or may not be the same James HILL who appeared above or in same district with "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census or the one who appears later in the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census), Jos. JONES, WALTON, PAYNE, and others. On October 19, 1801 James FREEMAN sold to Wiet (Wyatt) CLEVELAND 160 acres on Freemanís Creek, Groveís Fork of the Broad River, where CLEVELAND lived adjacent to John IVEY, the land sold being part of the 400 acres earlier granted to FREEMAN. Witnesses were: John SAVAGE and Robert Duncan who is very likely to be the same Robert DUNCAN who appeared in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census.
      1802
      The acreage for Lott IVEY and John IVEY is confirmed in the 1802 Franklin Co. GA tax list, showing 200 acres for Lott IVEY and 138 acres for John, both located on Freemanís Creek. Apparently they still lived where their original purchase was made three years earlier. Also in the 1802 tax list is George MARTIN on Indian Creek (who is very likely to be the same George MARTIN who appeared in the 1790 and 1800 Pendleton, SC census). In Captain John Martinís District (probably the same John MARTIN who appears in the 1790 Pendleton SC census), there appears James HILL (who may or may not be the same James HILL who appeared above or in same district with "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census or the one who appears later in the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census), John REID (who was probably the one who appeared later in the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census), William REID (who was probably the same one who appeared in the same district with "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census), James Reid and James Hix (the three REIDs and HIX all were listed on the same page as neighbors), Elijah MARTIN (who is probably the one who appears in the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census), Moses GUEST (who has to be the same Moses GUEST above who appears in the 1790 Pendleton census and who appears in the exact same district with "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) in the 1800 Pendleton census), David BARTON (who appeared in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census), Benjamin Echols, many PAYNE families. Charles ISHAM, Daniel HILL, John HILL (who may or may not be the same John HILL who was in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census and the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census), Nicholas SEWELL, William SEWELL, Thomas HARRINGTON, Samuel SEWELL, Joseph SEWELL, David MONTGOMERY (who is very likely to be the same David MONTGOMERY who appeared in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census and the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census, and lived next to Green B. Hill in the 1830 Jasper Co. GA census), William ASHER (who is likely to be the same William ASHER who appears in the 1790 and 1800 Pendleton, SC censuses), Thomas PAYNE, William RAMSEY, F. STRIPLING, Daniel MORGAN, Stephen CRANE, William CRANE (who appears in the 1790 and 1800 Pendleton, SC censuses), and others. David MONTGOMERY (above) also in 1802 appears on a deed in Franklin Co. as Justice Of The Peace.
      1803
      Franklin Co. GA tax lists again show Lott IVEY with 200 acres on Freemanís Creek, and John IVEY with his138 acres on Freemanís Creek. Also listed were H. MONTGOMERY, Daniel HILL, and others.
      1805
      This is the first record we have of Green B. HILL living in Franklin Co. GA. In Captain Holcomís District "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) is shown with143a on the east waters of the Eastonally (Creek). Also in this district were Moses Gess (GUEST) (who is no doubt the same Moses GUEST above who was in the 1790 Pendleton SC census and in Green HILLís district in the 1800 Pendleton census), Daniel MORGAN, John MORGAN (who is likely to be the same John MORGAN who lived in the same district with "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) in 1800 Pendleton, SC., and others). In Captain Bryantís District there was a William HILL (who may or not be the same William HILL in the 1790 Pendleton, SC census), William BURT, and others. In Captain Wimís District, Lott IVIE is shown with only 100 acres on Freemanís Creek, and John IVY with his 138 acres on Freemanís Creek. Also there were Zebulon SAVAGE, H. MONTGOMERY, and others.
      1806
      In Captain Holllingsworthís District there was Green HILL, Neese (Nacy) MEEKS (who was the brother, not the son, of Littleton MEEKS who appeared in Surry Co. NC, and later in the 1790 Pendleton, SC census and in the same district with "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census), William MORROW, John MORROW and Moses GUEST (who were both in the 1790 Pendleton SC census and in Green HILLís district in the 1800 Pendleton census), Benjamin ECHOLS, David BARTON (who appeared in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census), Daniel MORGAN, and others. On February 20, 1806, Lot IVIE witnessed a deed of trust for a Methodist meeting house called "Hargrove". His witnessing the deed does not seem to indicate he was Methodist, for he was possibly not involved beyond being a witness. Later religious details on Lott IVEY and the HILL family indicates that they were Baptists. On November 26, 18?? (this deed was among many other deeds from 1806, so it is probably 1806) Green HILL purchased 287.5 acres from John COLLINS (who was in the same district with "Green HILL) (Green B. HILL) in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census), on Eastanolle Creek adjacent Isham YOUNG and John KELLY (who later appears in the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census), land granted originally to Andrew BURNS in 1787, and then to Filiy M. HUNT in 1800. Witnesses were: Thomas IVIE who was probably the son of Lott IVIE, Zebulon SAVAGE, Lott IVIE.
      1807
      On April 7, 1807 James R. WYLY sold to Elijah SPARKS 200 acres on the south side of Eastanolle Creek including all land previously purchased by WYLY from Green HILL. Signed James R. WYLY, Sarah WYLY. Witnesses were: Moses MEEKS, Jacob Eddards (Edwards?), and Moses GUEST as Justice of the Peace, (who again is the same Moses GUEST who appeared in the 1790 Pendleton SC census and in Green HILLís district in the 1800 Pendleton census).
      1808
      Lot IVIE appears in Captain Barnwellís District. Also in 1808 in Captain Wimís District
      Lott IVEY appears with100 acres on Freemanís Creek, and John IVEY is listed with his 138 acres on Freemanís Creek. Lott and John have by now been in the same location for nine years. In Captain Bushís District (area includes Nails Creek) a James HILL (who may or may not be one of the James HILLs mentioned above is listed for Poll Tax only), also Isham JONES, William BLACK, and others.
      1810
      Captain Headenís District of Franklin Co. GA lists tax defaulters including a James HILL, William JONES Sr., Jesse PATTERSON, Zebulon SAVAGE, Thomas SAVAGE, and others).
      Possibly of some significance, and sometime prior to 1810, is the fact that a daughter of John HILL, Sr. of Surry Co. NC, named Unity HILL, had previously married a David ALEXANDER "of Pendleton, SC" and moved to Pendleton as a family, appearing in the 1810 Pendleton Co. SC census. John HILL, Sr., had other children including Margaret (married Alexander JOYCE), John Jr., Micajah, and Dutton.
      Also of significance is that a James HILL appears in name only in the 1814 returns for the estate papers of William HILL who deceased in Jasper Co. GA about 1809-1810. This William HILL was the one who married Lydia WHITE about 1799 either in SC or Jasper Co. GA. He was from SC and was previously married to someone else and had at least two children by that previous marriage, both born in Jasper Co. GA, Elizabeth HILL (who married Benjamin LASSITER), and Mary HILL (who married Cheadle COCHRAN who previously lived in Pendleton, SC 1800). Note that Lydia WHITE (later married Isaac HILL, grandfather of Senator Benjamin Harvey HILL) had two children by William HILLÖ.Eliza HILL (who married Isaac HILL, a 1st cousin to Senator Benjamin Harvey HILL), and Louvisa HILL (who married Asa HILL, also a 1st cousin to Senator Benjamin Harvey HILL and brother to Isaac HILL who married Eliza HILL).
      1811
      Captain Clevelandís District lists Lot IVEY, Nacy MEEKS (who was the brother, not the son, of Littleton MEEKS), William BLACK, Joseph McCRARY, John GOCHER (GOUCHER) (who appeared in the 1790 and 1800 Pendleton, SC census), John BARTON (who appeared in the same district with "Green HILL" (Green B. HILL) in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census), Elijah SPARKS, Daniel MORGAN, and others. In Captain Headenís District, John IVY is listed with his 138 acres on Freemanís Creek, Littleton MEEKS has 100 acres on Freemanís Creek, James HILL is listed for Poll Tax only, Stephen IVY is listed for Poll Tax only, Anderson IVEY is on Freemanís Creek, Thomas IVEY is on Freemanís Creek, and John MEEKS (son of Littleton MEEKS) is listed for Poll Tax only. Also there is J. MONTGOMERY on Freemanís Creek (who later appears in the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census), Zebulon SAVAGE with 50 acres on Freemanís Creek, Wyatt CLEVELAND with 160 acres on Freemanís Creek, CANTERBURY, KENADAY, PAYNE, Nancy HENDRICKS and Joseph HENDRICKS, (both listed as orphans of Isaac HENDRICKS), and others. On February 1, 1811, a William HILL is mentioned in a deed, where reference is made to land he previously owned near Stephens Creek adjacent to PAYNE, QUILLEN, and "on the road to Carnesville".
      1813
      Captain Headenís District lists with 240 acres on Indian Creek, Littleton MEEKS with 100 acres on Freemanís Creek, John BLACK, Jehue IVY on Freemanís Creek, Stephen IVEY listed for Poll Tax only, Thomas IVY on Freemanís Creek, Jno. MEEKS (son of Littleton MEEKS), Wm. Spradling, David MARTIN (who appeared in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census), Wyatt CLEVELAND on Freemanís Creek, Zebulon SAVAGE with 50 acres on Freemanís Creek, Moses TRIMBLE, Andrew HUEY, and others. On April 15, 1813, John IVEY witnessed a court document for John HENDERSON (who was in the 1800 Pendleton, SC census and according to the deed wording was heading west and wanted to release a young mulatto boy named Ned who stated that he did not want to go west with HENDERSON). John HENDERSON also sold 200 acres to John IVEY on March 22, 1813. This is probably the same John HENDERSON who later appears in the 1820 Jasper Co. GA census.
      1815
      On November 30, 1815 in Franklin Co. GA, a James HILL sold to William SMITH 116 acres on the waters of the Hudson River, adj. TUCKER, McCARTER. Wits: Joseph MORRIS, Thomas BELL.
      1818
      In Captain Turkís District a James HILL is listed with 200 acres on Webbís Creek, and Thomas HILL on Webbís Creek. On November 9, 1818, a James HILL Sr. sells to Richard SAYE 200 acres in Franklin Co., land adjacent William TUCKER (who is probably the same William TUCKER who appears in the 1820 Jasper Co.

      You may know by now about the DNA match for descendants of William
      HILL/Hescenia SMALLWOOD. I am a descendant of Green B. HILL (b.1776, VA)/Martha IVEY who lived possibly in Surry Co. NC (prior to 1800), then Pendleton SC (1800), Franklin Co. GA (1805). Our line matches your line's DNA. The DNA proves that these two lines are connected within 14 generations. Our Green B. HILL was from VA, and is near the exact age of your William. I suspect they were brothers, therefore your William named a son Green B. HILL.
