724 Wright Hill, b. 1784, was married twice. The name of his first wife was "Polly", last name unknown, and it has been suggested he may have killed his first wife intentionally. Criminal records at MO State Archives were not indexed as of 1989 and no search was made. Later research shows he married and had one son, believed by some to be William Chapman Hill, b. about 1818 in Warren Co., TN, before he married his second wife, Frances Christian. Marriage records have not yet been located for either wife. (Based on some research by Douglas Hill)

Feb. 28, 2004. Found the following old newspaper notice in the book, "Genealogical Material From Legal Notices in Early Georgia Newspapers." Abstracted by Judge Folks Huxford of Homerville, GA between 1961 and 1970, later published by Rev. Silas Emmett Lucas in 1989. ISBN 0-89308-656-8. pp. 220-221.

"Notice: WRIGHT HILL (no county of residence shown) in a communication says that in view of the unfavorable reports concerning the death of his wife, he published appended to his communication a copy of the Coroner's Inquest jury verdict rendered in Warren Co., Tenn., where she died. Same shows that the inquest was held Nov. 23, 1814, in Warren Co., Tenn., inquest conducted by James Cope, J.P., over the body of POLLY HILL 'then lying before us' and the jury verdict was that she came to her death by being 'accidently and innocently shot by her husband, Wright Hill." (Name of newspaper not listed in the abstract)

March 10, 2004. I called Bradley Walker, genealogist at the Magness Library in McMinnville, TN to see about getting a copy of the 1814 inquest and to check early marriage records for Wright and Polly. Unfortunately, all early Warren Co., TN records were lost in a courthouse fire many years ago. The earliest records now on file start about 1856.

Wright and Frances moved to Moberly, Randolph Co., MO the Spring of 1818 and are found listed in several counties in MO. with a large family throughtout the 1820's to 1840's. He was in Warren Co., TN in 1815 (deed of 80 acres west side of Collins River). One of his children, Almoran Hill, became one of the early pioneers who settled in Oregon in 1843, going across the plains by oxen with his wife.
