One Hill Family

Brenda (Hill) and Adarius Hart came to see me today. Brenda wanted help with her Hill family history. She knew her parents, grandparents and great grandparents.

Andrew Hill was born about 1877 and died 1936. We found his father Daniel on the 1870 and 1880 Census. The 1880 census says Daniel Hill 27, Lizzie 25, Dan 7, Henry 4, and Andrew 3. We are still looking for Dan and Henry. Andrew married first to Iula (maybe a Hunter) and had George 1900 and James 1901 and one other child who died. Then Andrew married Emma Lambert and had Mary, Lula Mae, Oliver, Willie A, Jimmie, Oliver and others.

Oliver Hill (1918) married Cora E Jackson (1919--2001) and had at least 14 children.
One was George who married Peggy Shropshire who were Brenda's parents.

Anyone with information on any Hill family in Coweta please contact me. There were many. Also Lambert, Jackson, Shropshire, Neely, Rutledge, Strickland, Calhoun and Bohannon.
