Hill Surname

We do not know much about this family. The earliest of this line was born somewhere in the 1770s. He may have been born in an area comprised of mostly Swedish descendants. The Hill surname though is supposed to be of English origin, either a literal translation of the English word "hill" or a corruption of the German world "hild" meaning battle.


1st Generation:

John Hill was born circa 1727. He died in 1767 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.

John married Joanna circa 1747, probably in Pennsylvania. She was born circa 1731 and died on September 7, 1807 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.

They had the following children:

1 Howard Hill was born on August 10, 1750 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. He died on August 7, 1767 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.
2John Hill
3Joseph Hill was born on July 25, 1753 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.
4Ann Hill was born on October 29, 1754 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.
5Joanna Hill was born on February 6, 1756 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. She died after 1773.
In 1773, Joanna was one of the witnesses to her brother John's wedding in Wilmington, Delaware. Various online family trees suggest that she was the Joanna Hill who married Jesse Thorton/Thornton and later lived in Fleming County, New York. There is no known source though to suggest that relationship is correct.
6Thomas Hill was born on June 17, 1757 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.
He was probably the Thomas Hill, son of John, who died on June 24, 1757 in Philadelphia.

2nd Generation:

John Hill was born on October 4, 1751 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. He died after 1801, possibly in Maryland.

Father: John Hill
Mother: Joanna

John was born and raised in Philadelphia, where he attended the Quaker church with his family. In February 1773, he requested to be transferred to the Quaker church at Wilmington, Delaware. There he was married to Ann Hunt in June 1773. At the time, he was listed as a resident of Wilmington and by occupation a house carpenter. John and Ann settled together in Wilmington, where they raised a large family. Briefly, between 1776 and 1777, they lived in Nottingham, Maryland. The records from the Wilmington Quaker church suggest that John frequently ran into trouble with the church - he was accused of frequenting taverns, gaming at cards (gambling?) and being involved in public quarrels. In 1784, he was disowned (excommunicated) by the Quaker church. In spite of that, his wife and children remained members of the church. Between 1790 and 1792, John's wife and all of his children moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is not known when John moved to Philadelphia, but his move probably occurred during that time period. Eventually, John moved to Baltimore, Maryland. In 1801, his wife and three children were described as moving to Baltimore, Maryland to live with him. There is no record of the family after that date.

John married Ann "Anna" Hunt in 1773 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware. She was born circa 1752 and died after 1801.

There is no evidence of who Ann's parents were. She was married to John Hill in 1773 in Wilmington, Delaware and was described as a resident of Wilmington. Despite this, she was probably not born or raised there. There are no other references to her in the Wilmington Quaker church records and there were no Hunts listed among the many witnesses to her marriage in 1773. Given that she and her husband moved at various times to Maryland, it is possible she came from there.

After her marriage, Ann lived with her family in Wilmington, Delaware. They also lived briefly in Nottingham, Maryland during the mid-1770s, but returned to Wilmington. In 1784, her husband was disowned from the Quaker church, but Ann continued to attend the church with her children. Then in the early 1790s, they began the process of slowly moving the entire family to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The two oldest sons, John and James, were sent in June 1790. Third son George was sent in November 1790. Fourth and fifth children Isaac and Mary were sent in October 1791. Then in May 1792, Ann moved to Philadelphia with her four youngest children: Joanna, Howard, Ann and Thomas. There is no record of when her husband John had moved to Philadelphia, as he was not a member of the church. Eventually (sometime between 1792 and 1801), her husband John had moved to Baltimore, Maryland, and she decided to follow him. In October 1801, Ann and her children Mary, Ann and Thomas were listed as having moved to Baltimore to reside with her husband. There is no further record of her.

They had the following children:

1James Hill was born on March 18, 1774 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware.

In June or July 1790, James moved to Philadelphia with his brother John, where both of them began apprenticeships. James was still in Philadelphia in January 1791, but left no known trace there after that date. He was probably the James Hill who lived in Nicholas County, Kentucky in 1800, 1810 and 1820; he had most likely moved out west with his brother John. Census records suggest that James was married and had a family of at least 8 children; but the identities of none of them are known. James probably died, or moved away, during the 1820s.

2John Hill
3George Hill was born on March 29, 1777 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware. He died on January 14, 1791 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.
In November 1790, George was sent to Philadelphia to begin an apprenticeship like his older brothers. Sadly, he died two months after arriving there.
4Isaac Hill was born on September 26, 1779 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware. He died on September 21, 1798 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.
5Mary Hill was born on April 23, 1781 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware. She died after 1801, possibly in Maryland.
6Joanna Hill was born on March 26, 1783 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware. She died on November 2, 1793 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.
7Howard Hill was born on December 13, 1784 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware. He died after 1810, possibly in Maryland.
Howard moved with his mother and youngest siblings to Philadelphia in May 1792; where they lived for several years. In 1801, his mother and remaining siblings moved to Baltimore, Maryland, but 16-year old Howard remained behind in Philadelphia. Perhaps he was in an apprenticeship at that time, like his older brothers. Howard continued living in Philadelphia, but in November 1810, he moved to Indian Springs, Maryland. No known reference after this date.
8Ann Hill was born on August 1, 1787 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware. She died after 1801, possibly in Maryland.
9Thomas Hill was born on November 21, 1789 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware. He died after 1801, possibly in Maryland.

1st Generation:

John Hill was possibly born on November 19, 1775 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., Delaware. He died on May 4, 1853 1 in Jefferson Twp., Boone Co., Indiana. He is buried in the Cox Cemetery, Jefferson Twp., Boone Co., Indiana.

Possible Father: John Hill
Possible Mother: Ann Hunt

Note: there is no proof that John was born on the above date or was the son of the above parents. The 1850 census records his birth in Delaware and the calculation of his age at death on his tombstone points to a birthdate of about November 29, 1773. The suggestion that he was the John Hill, born on November 19, 1775 in Wilmington, Delaware to John and Ann Hunt is based on my own guesswork and circumstantial evidence. 1) Although the two birth dates do not match, they are similar enough that a simple (and common) mistake on a tombstone engraving could account for the discrepancy 2) The names of some of John's children are repeated between the two families, which might suggest a relationship: Ann, Mary, Thomas, and James 3) As an adult, John Hill lived in Kentucky near James Hill, who he had an inferred relationship with. John Hill of Wilmington had a brother named James that was close in age to him. In 1790, they were sent together to Philadelphia to be apprentices, and neither of them left any further trace in Philadelphia. It would make sense then that the brothers were close and would move out west together. 4) During the 1790s, the Hill family of Wilmington was mobile and apparently moved frequently, which is also the same time period that "our" John had moved out west to Kentucky.

If John was the son of John and Ann Hill, then he was raised as a Quaker. In Wilmington, he attended the Quaker church with his family - although his father was later disowned from the faith. In June 1790, John and his brother James requested leave to transfer from the Quaker church at Wilmington to the Quaker church at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In July 1790, they entered the church at Philadelphia. John and James were both described as apprentices, and John was listed as living with William Cox in Philadelphia. Within the next two years, the rest of their family moved from Wilmington to Philadelphia; but later moved to Baltimore, Maryland. Then sometime between 1790 and 1796, John and his brother James moved out west to Kentucky. They settled in a part of Bourbon County, Kentucky that became Nicholas County in 1799.

John married Dorothy Allen in 1796, and they began to raise a family and lived in Nicholas County. In 1829 or 1830, John's oldest son William moved to Indiana and John apparently decided to do the same. In about 1833, John moved with his family out west and they settled on a farm in Jefferson Township, Boone County, Indiana 20. They lived at this location for the remainder of their lives.

John married Dorothy Allen on or soon after December 26, 1796 in Bourbon (now Nicholas) Co., Kentucky 21.

He was named after his maternal grandfather, William Allen. William was raised in Nicholas County, Kentucky, where he married Rachel Lavina Cowan in 1825, at the age of 24. They only lived in Kentucky for a few years. In 1829 or 1830, William and his family moved out west and settled on a farm in Jefferson Township, Boone County, Indiana.

William and his family lived on a farm in Jefferson Township, near the small village of Dover. They were farmers and were also probably members of the Presbyterian church. William was quite successful and owned a considerable amount of land in Boone County. In 1860, he had real estate valued at $9,400.00 (an impressive sum for those times).

William was married to Rachel Lavina Cowan on August 4, 1825 in Nicholas Co., Kentucky 5.

They had no children.
After her first marriage, Dorothy and her husband moved to Greene Co., Indiana, where they lived until his death in 1873. Sometime between 1873 and 1878, Dorothy and her daughter moved out west to Bates Co., Missouri (where her brothers Alfred and William had settled). Her second husband John Elliott was from Boone Co., Indiana, so it is possible that they returned there after their marriage in 1888. She was last found living in Boone Co., Indiana in 1900. Her place of death and burial has not been located.
3 John C. Hill was born on January 11, 1831 in Jefferson Twp., Boone Co., Indiana 1. He died on May 22, 1907 in Whitestown, Boone Co., Indiana 1. He is buried in the Cox Cemetery, Jefferson Twp., Boone Co., Indiana.

md. Brazier Coffin Brown
Eva Hill (1873-1962)
md. Elmer M. Mount
Unlike his brothers, John remained in Boone Co., Indiana and took over the family farm in Jefferson Township. One possibility is that his middle name was "Cowan."
4 Nancy Ann Hill was born on October 25, 1832 in Jefferson Twp., Boone Co., Indiana. She died on November 18, 1833 in Jefferson Twp., Boone Co. Indiana. She is buried in the Cox Cemetery, Jefferson Twp., Boone Co., Indiana.

Although his middle initial is sometimes listed as "H" 11, on his highly eroded tombstone, the middle initial looks to me more like "C." If that is true, then his full name was probably Isaac Cowan Hill, named after his maternal grandfather.
6 Harriett Amanda (or Ann) Hill was born on March 28, 1838 6,11 in Jefferson Twp., Boone Co., Indiana. She died in 1905 17, probably in Texas. She is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Dallas, Dallas Co., Texas.

Father: William Hill
Mother: Rachel Lavina Cowan

Rachel was the youngest of nine children and frequently went by her middle name Lavina. She was probably raised as a Presbyterian, as she was a member of that church in adulthood. Rachel was married to James L. Taylor on July 28, 1862 at her parents' home. Immediately afterwards, Rachel and James settled on a part of the large Taylor estate near Hazelrigg in Jefferson Township, Boone County, Indiana.

James and Rachel spent most of their lives on their Hazelrigg farm. They were members of the Presbyterian Church of Thorntown and they were also Democrats in politics. After her husband James died in 1912, Rachel could no longer care for herself. In that year, she went to live with her younger daughter Carrie in the city of Crawfordsville, in Montgomery County, Indiana. Rachel died there from paralysis at the age of 74.

Rachel married James Lowden Taylor on July 28, 1862 12,13 or July 31, 1862 9 in Jefferson Twp., Boone Co. Indiana.
