I am looking for descendants of George and Samantha E. Hewlett Hillhouse who married in Lawrence Co. Mo. in 24 October 1865, by A. A. Young, Minister Cumberland Presbyterian.
The Hewletts came to Lawrence Co. Mo in 1844 from Hopkins Co. Kentucky. Samantha's grandfather was Samuel Hewlett born in Ky.
Samantha E. Hewlett was the daughter of James Pemberton Hewlett and Mary Massey Spilman Hewlett Pruitt.Her father and mother are buried at Mt. Olivet Baptist Church Cemetery, 6 mi. north of Pierce City, MO.Mt. Olivet Church was established in 1858 on Hewlett farmland. It still exists today.
Other Hillhouses who married in Lawrence Co. and may be related to George Hillhouse are shown in Lawrence Co. Marriages Bk AB, 1845 to 1870 are:
Alexander Hillhouse to Catharine Comins, 17 Jan 1859 Andrew J. Hillhouse to Mary Ann T. Moore, 6 Dec 1866 Elija B. Hillhouse to Miss Malinda Morris, 24 Jan 1867 James H. Hillhouse to Margaret E Young, 3 Dec 1858 John H. Hillhouse to Carolina Edwards, 2 June 1868 Levi G. Hillhouse to Alice A. Neece, 6 Dec 1866 William Hillhouse to Miss Zemera E. Moore, 26 Nov 1865
I hope this helps someone related to these Hillhouses and knows something about George and Samantha Hewlett Hillhouse of Lawrence Co. Missouri.The Hewletts are part of the original 12 Pioneer families of Lawrence Co. and celebrate with a Reunion in September every year.
I look forward to hearing from any descendants or who has any information. Thank you in advance,
