Elijah's father - Samuel Wilson Hillhouse Sr. born 1780 in SC. died and buried in North GA. Samuel Wilson's Father - Capt. John H. Hillhouse (Rev. War Soldier) born May 11, 1770 in Western Pennsylvania. Capt. John Hillhouse's father - William Hillhouse Sr. born about 1715 in County Derry Ireland. It is debated as to William's father by most family historians. We do know his grandfather was Abraham Hillhouse Sr. of Northern Ireland. Abraham Hillhouse Sr. came from Ayrhire Scotland to Ireland sometime before 1689. I have written a 500 page book on the Hillhouse family. Just trying to gather the money to get it published. I'm close now, so stay in touch.
