Sandra I sent the following email to Liz Moore. I am the ggggson of James Hill and Catherine Stutts. Leonard Martin Stutts and Mary Lancaster Stutts are probably the parents of "Willie" Catherine. I have documented it below and hope that you can shed some light on James Hill's ancestors. I have a bit more about Catherine Stutts, but haven't really done much on that line. I would appreciate hearing from you via email or phone. My contact information is at end of email.
Subject: Your 1998 Hill Family post in GenForum
Liz, I am Robert Earl Hill of the NC, GA, AL and Commerce, TX Hills and Stutts that you referencedin your posts. I have done family research back to the early 1800's but have been stumped at that point. I would like to know if you have any of these folks in your information about Moore County NC and if/how they were related to mine. My ggggf Archibald G. Hill was born in Carthage, NC and was a Union Soldier who enlisted in NC. His father, James Hill could also have been raised in that area since he married Catherine Stutts, a family you referenced. Catherine Stutts parents were probably Leonard Martin Stutts and Mary Lancaster Stutts.
If your family tree of Isaac, Hiram (or other) Hill contains any of these names, I would appreciate seeing it. I would imagine that there must be some relationship between them and James born about 1796 or Archibald who was born in 1828 there. Now if I can just find it. I have heard the family talk of Hiram Hill's in the distant past.
