Thanks for the rapid reply. Do you have any info on Mary and Benjamin Garrett Hill ? It seems they left the area, there is no trace of them in the 1880 census. It is also interesting My 3rd Great Grandfather Ferdinand Hill, who was Garrett Hill's Brother, also married a Murphy. He married Ellen Murphy may 18, 1878, She was daughter of Daniel Murphy and Mary Anna (Polly) Battill, they had a daughter Mary born 1851.
Garrett and Ferdinand were Civil war orphans. Their Father William R. Hill died in Jefferson Barracks hospital, St. Louis 23 Feb 1862.Leaving his Widow Parthenia and seven children as orphans.
Thanks, Roy Hill
