In Response To: 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.
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.....
Polly's great granddaughter Lizzie Hill(General's daughter)
and Lizzie's daughter Gracie Valentine/DNA Composition
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.
