Robert Hill Lanarkshire Scotland to New York to Schuylkill County, PA

Posted: 31 May 2014 10:53PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Smith Hill Thompson
The actual record lists John Smith with wife Agnes and children William and Margaret. Willam and Margaret were b. Lanarkshire to John Smith and Agnes Hill. I believe Agnes brother, Robert Hill was my great-great grandfather. He married Jeanette Thompson in Schuylkill County PA and had a son Alexander, b. abt. 1847 and a son, George R. b. Jan. 1849. Robert Hill and John Smith were the only two victims of a fatal mine accident in February 1849. I have yet to find an immigration record for Robert Hill, but believe he probably immigrated from Scotland to New York or Pennsylvania about 1840-1847.
