Re: Mary B. Hill
In Response To: Re: Mary B. Hill ()

Hello,

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
Sydia/Lydia age 70 female born Maine
Francis H. age 32 Mariner
Alfred age 30 Mariner
Rufus age 29 Mariner
james F. age 27 farmer
Armorah age 22

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.

Tony
