Hi Lanette,
I am having trouble with my Hill line. In fact I have two Hill lines. I have Abraham Hill who m. Christian Walton as the s/o Abraham Hill b. 1698 who m. Judith Hinton. Is that correct? Were Abraham/Judith also the parents of Isaac Hill b. 1748 and if so where was Isaac born?

If they were not Isaac's parents, do you know who was? My other lead is John Hill b. 1719 and H. Brewster of Edgecomb, NC. If the later are his parents, do you have any information on them?

Would love any help you can offer. My e-mail address is

Many thanks, Janet Calhoun

I am searching for the father of Williamson Theophilus Jordan, who was born: 14 February 1805 in Wilkes County, GA.

He married to Harriett T. in Jones County 2 Dec 1830.

I read with interest your mention of Polly Jordan.

I feel there is some connection to Theophilus Hill, but unable to put it all together.

Any thoughts, suggestions?

Norman K. Huppert Sr

I have written to the DAR for the information on a Reuben Jordan, and hopefully that will shed some light on my search.

Thank you

Have you seen anything about a Williamson Theophilus Jordan in your research?

I believe he is related to Reuben Jordan who fought in the war of 1776 and received a land grant in eastern Georgia for his war effort.

Could he be the father to you your Polly Jordan?

You have a Theophilus Jordan Hill, b: 1793.
I have a Williamson Theophilus Jordan, b: 1805 in Wilkes County, GA

Do you know the other children of Benjamin Jordan and his wife Elizabeth?

Do you have any idea when Polly Jordan was born?

Thank you

During your research of Theophilus Hill and his wife Polly Jordan, have you come across a Williamson Theophilus Jordan, b: 1805 in Wilkes County, GA.

I am having trouble with his parents, as am unsure of their names, but there is some kind of connection to Polly Jordan, who was Theophilus Hill's first wife.

Any help would be appreciated.
