Re: FPOC HILL Surry NC Richardsons Henry VA

Merilla Hill(Another daughter of Polly Johns) -Other Free 1810 Surry County N.C. I also found it again in 1820 Mis-transcribed as Morillch Hall. Rachel Hill(my 3xgreat gmother is FPOC in Surry County NC 1820-40, and 1850 Wythe County Va. My DNA comes back as being closely related to the Carter family of Stokes County N.C. where another member of AncestryDNA seems to think that we share a common ancestor through Henry Carter

"Thanks so much for writing. This is the first time I have recognized a name in the other tree.

Henry Carter b. 1761 in Albemarle Co., VA, d. 1843 in Stokes Co, NC is our common ancestor. He is my 4g-gf. My line goes thru Henry's son John N. Yours thru Henry's son Winston, then Winston's son William Anderson who married Amanda Hill.
So, hello cuz, thanks for writing.
Actuallly, I do have 4 percent Native American. Don't know from who, but on my mom's side many lines go back to 1600s or 1700s. And I have known for a long time that I probably have Native/African American ancestry. I have to really work it to get a sunburn, unlike my Swedish father who blistered after 10 minutes in summer sun. My mom was white, but had a dark complexion, as do I. I take it that you appear African American but have white ancestors. Do you know which couple had a mixed marriage. I am not sure what you mean by "small window to work within."
I see that Hairston is in your line. Big time tobacco growers in Rockingham/Stokes/Henry/Patick. Big time slave owners. Yes, I get it. They got what they wanted.
Again, thanks for writing."

Polly's daughter Rachel Hill(FPOC 1820) whose son(General Hill) is purportedly Brice Davis' child, of Henry County Va. He is marked as simply Black most times, but mulatto at others, but Then again, so were these first cousins of his who are far from Black.....

also here is the Guion Miller info.....

I found the Richardsons(mary(ia) in Rockingham County already remarried to a Robert Gwinn, but the Census names him as William Richardson instead of Jim.
