This is what I have so far on my Hill line. I have verified my line from
Heman who after numerous moves from VT, ended up in Erie, PA but not sure
of his father except what I have stated here. Anyone with connections,
contact me or hopefully, this may help someone else.
Name: HILL (James?)
Birth: ABT 1770 in ,,Vermont of
I am trying to verify that, James Hill, possible father of my Heman Hill
(see below) should have been in Vermont in 1800. Only three James Hill
families listed in Vermont 1800: (two) in Orleans County, Greensboro
Township, and Chittenden County, Charlotte Twp.

Sephen Hill married Mary Graham 1837
Robert Hill married Laura Patterson 1840

surveyor in York in 1818. He was listed on 1820 census (one page away from
Alfred Collins, in Genesee County, Leicester Twp page 98: Males 1 10-16, 2
