In Response To: Re: Mary B. Hill ()
It looks like Roscoe's father James F. Hill was free person of color.
1850 Lincoln County, Bath Maine
Sandy Hill age 69 male farmer born Maine born 1781
1830 Lincoln County Bath, Maine.
Sandy Hill is a free person of Color with 8 either Free persons of color in his residence. No other names are listed exept his.
In 1840 Sandy Hill listed again a free peron of Color in Bath Maine.
So, it looks like Mary's ancester were Free Persons of Color. What an interesting story.
