My search for ancestry began with the curiosity about my orphaned grandfather, James Shadrack Hill. Although, I am still in search of clues for my "Ellusive Hill" ancestors, I have learned quite a bit more information about other family members. I hope you enjoy my web page and please e-mail me, if we make a connection or you have questions or comments.

MILLER,COWAN,SHOCKLEY,WOLFE,CORDRAY from Osage and Pulaski Counties,MO.,HILL in Greene, Jersey, and Macoupin Counties, IL,LOWERY and DODD from Pulaski Co., MO,VANBUSKIRK in Paulding Co.,OH.,Dekalb Co.,IN and Pulaski Co.,MO,DUNN,RILEY,KENT,TRUSSELL all from Monroe Co., MO.
Remember to always verify your research with documentation and any information you find here or otherwise.
