Thank you. You've answered a number of questions for me including
military service for George and Jacob Kennison Hill. You mentioned that
you had a number of resources and would check to see if you had further
information on this family. Have you had a chance to do that?
George W. Hill was born 6 Sep 1823 in Hardy Co. He married Emily
Caroline Shreve on 8 Apr 1847 in Pendleton Co. Their children were Jacob,
George, Mary, Isaac, Susan, Margaret, Emily, Miles and Samuel. I suspect
they had another son between Jacob and George, possibly Frederick. George
Sr. later married Martha Shreve and they had David Scott, William and
James R. Hill. They probably moved to Grant County.
I know many of those who immigrated to Pendleton County were German.
Usually, when there is a mass immigration movement they come from the same
area. I suspect George Hill and/or his parents were from Germany. Has
anyone done any research as to what area the people who settled there
might be from?
You've been very helpful and I really appreciate it.
