Greetings, many of these are old postings, but here goes. The Francis and Bennett Hills are from Sampson County and I have them pretty thoroughly researched until about 1820 when Bennett Hill left the area, his father Francis having been deceased since 1800. The Green Hill born 1801 mentioned in this thread who married Nancy Sneed had their marriage bond witnessed in Wake County in1819 by Sion/Sihon Hill, most assuredly his father Sion Hill who married Starage Lee in 1800 in Johnston County. Joseph Hill born in 1806 in Johnston married first to Elizabeth Johnson, yes the daughter of Abel and Ann Johnson. Joseph is, in my opinion, the son of Rev. War soldier Joseph Hill who married Sarah Lee. The Rev. War docs are on file at and clearly name their son Joseph and others. In 1830, widow Saran Lee Hill is living with Joseph in the Johnston County census; it's not his mother-in-law widow Ann Johnson as she is living in another household with her children in 1830. Green's parents Sion/Starage Hill are already in Davidson County by early 1823. Since Green's father is Sion and Joseph's father is a Joseph Hill (Sr.), they are NOT brothers. However, the fact that Joseph Sr. and Sion both married into the Lee family gives consideration to some relationship that after 38 years, I have not uncovered. Why Green Hill/1801 moved to Johnson County, Iowa in the 1830s and then Joseph Hill followed him there in the mid to late 1840s after marrying widow Hannah Stout Yarbrough is not known. I am still actively researching these lines. I welcome your input. Thanks, Jerry McDowell,
