    • Originally from Warren Co., TN, where he first married Cornelia Smartt in the 1820's and had two children. It is not known what happened to Cornelia but presumably she died. Jesse then married Francis Rogers, had 8 children, and around the mid-1840's moved to Alabama where he was the first probate judge of DeKalb Co., AL. He died April of 1848. His widow, Francis Rogers, cannot be found in the 1850 census for Warren Co., TN, but three of the children are found living with other families there: Susan Jane, b. 1837, is living with the Aaron Moffitt family in 1850 as a student, and siblings, William G., b. 1842, and Mary Cornelia, b. 1840 are living with the Isaac Smith family as students in 1850. Two other children died the same year as their father; Robert in Sept. 1848 and Louisa in Nov. 1848. The three oldest children are unaccounted for as is Francis Rogers, their mother.

      From "Tennesse Records, Tombstone Inscriptions and Manuscripts, Historical and Biographical" by Jeannette Tillotson Acklen, under Hill Burying Ground, there is a listing for J.P. Hill, 1803-1881. It is unclear whether this is the Jesse Pleasant Hill. The birthdate fits but the death date does not. Needs more research.
