My 2nd GGF John Rhoten Hill married Rutha Jane Lusk in Madison co NC. Rutha Jane was the daughter of Joseph G. Luskand Margarett Russell , daughter of David Rusell . The Lusk left for TX sometime between the 1870 Madison co NC census and 1871 when John R. Hill started the 1st Methodist Church in Granbury, Hood co TX. I know there were Cogdills in Granbury, believe one was a Doctor. My grandmother was a granddaughter of John Rhoten Hill and she always talked about the older folk in Granbury. I always heard of the Cogdills, but don't know if there was a relationship between the ones in NC and TX. Since I see Cogdills married to Lusk, wonder if they all came from NC to TX together.
I am also searching for any info on the parents of John Rhoten Hill, perhaps other Hills also traveled with them.
