Hi! Tabitha , I was reading your posting on William Hillard Born abt 1884 in Washington Co. Ky. Son of John Hillard and Lizzie Hill. Check out message 222 where you will find the 1850 census I posted a while back. In my line there is a John Francis Hillard but I don't think he is the John Hillard you are looking for . My Henry Hillard had a brother listed Guilford Hillard in Household 415 in the 1850 census in Washington Co. Ky.

This may be the John Hillard you are looking for born in Washington Co. Kywho may be the father of your William Hillard . I am not positve but I have found no other John Hillard in this time frame that fit This is just a possibity for you to look at. I will look for your William Hillards death date and any other info I can find for you. Sincerely Sheila Fraley Laber
