    • The weak link in this Hill line is the parentage of Isaac Hill, Sr. There were several Abraham Hills living in the same general area in NC at the same point in time. Plus some researchers feel Isaac's parents may instead be John Hill and Martha Whitmell who m. 1722. Definitive documentation needs to be found.

      Abraham Hill is often confused with the Abraham Hill(s) or Henry Hill(s) of Chowan Co., and Wake Co., NC. There is no known connection.

      There is also confusion about who Abraham married. Some researchers have an "unknown" and show five sons; Benjamin, Abraham, Isaac, Henry, and John. Others show a Judith Hinton and ten children; Isaac, Henry, John, Israel, Nathienel, William, Abraham, Theophilus, Sarah and Mary. More research is needed. The common son in both scenarios is Isaac Hill, Sr., b. 1748.

      Abraham and some of his family moved to St. Mary's, MD about 1745. (Prof. Mark Hill)

      On the 1790 census for Rowan Co., NC, the following six HILLs are shown living there at the same time:
      (Could these be all or some of the sons of Abraham? The elder Abraham was deceased by 1760 so the first name listed could not be him) The sixth column shows order of entry by the transcriber. It appears Abraham and Thomas had land next to each other.
