    • Mr. Hill was thrice married. He first married Jerinand Matthews Ballstile, by whom there were no children. After Mrs. Hill's death Mr. Hill was married at San Felipe to Frances Ann Lloyd, who was born at Hazelhurst, Copiah County, Mississippi in 1822 and died three miles northeast of Round Top, Fayette County, Texas in December, 1857. She was buried in the Hill family cemetery. By this union the following children were born: John W.; William; Mary; Isaac Parham; Sarah Frances; Jared Winburn, who married Leila Powell; and Abbie Benham Hill, who married E. M. Thomas in Rogers, Bell County, December 31, 1835. (taken from San Jacinto Museum of History, Houston, Texas, from biographical sketches by Louis Wiltz Kemp)

      Francis Lloyd, Isaac's second wife, is buried beside him in the Hill Cemetery near Round Top, TX. Her marker reads:

      Francis A. Lloyd
      Wife of I. L. Hill
      Died Dec. 26, 1857

      Mother thou hast from us flown
      To the regions far above
      We to thee erect this stone
      Consecrated by our love."

      2/11/00. From Lloyd descendant, Robert Stuart of Arlington, TX, email: [email protected] I obtained the names of Frances Ann Lloyd's parents, some siblings' names and dates and where they came from before Texas.

      "My name is Robert Stuart, and I have, of late, been researching, in depth, one of my family groups. This being the family of my maternal grandmother's great grandfather. This family is that of the marriage of
      William W. Lloyd (1784 - 1839) and Elizabeth Selman (1786 - 1859), of Copiah County, Mississippi. The reason for this letter should become apparent shortly.

      The family had 9 children who lived to adulthood. Among these, my g2 grandfather, John H. Lloyd. The youngest daughter of the family was Frances Ann Lloyd. I have known for some time that Frances' married name was Hill, and she was a resident of Texas, this from various probate documents. However, while in Lawrence County, Mississippi last December, rumaging through a lawsuit filed by the children of William Lloyd in 1844, I found that three of the exhibits in the suit were original letters written in 1842 and 1846 by the above mentioned John H. Lloyd.

      In 1837 William W. Lloyd purchased a section of land in Washington County, Texas and planned to move his family there. Why he planned to leave his 2500 acre Ringgold Plantation in Mississippi is a mystery, but he removed a portion of his slaves to Texas. Unfortunately, on his return to Mississippi to get the family in 1839, he departed this life. In 1840, his wife, Elizabeth, and her two minor children, Benjamin and Frances moved to the land in Washington County, Texas.

      In his letter of April 4th 1842, John Lloyd expressed concern about the safety of his mother and younger siblings in Texas, based on the recent invasions by Santa Anna's army under General Woll. You will remember that he took San Antonio and Goliad and other settlements at that time. Because of this, John moved out to Texas for five years. In his letter of 6 July 1846, John states, "Sister Frances is married. She married a man by the name of I. L. Hill, a very fine man. I am very much pleased with him." Since both his 1846 letters were postmarked Austin County, Texas, I searched here for the marriage bond. Here I found Marriage Book B, p. 41, Isaac L. Hill married Frances Ann Lloyd on 5 November 1845.
      In the deed abstracts of that county, there are a number of entries, variously for Isaac L. Hill, I. L. Hill, and I. Lafayette Hill, dating back to 1837 or so. In addition, based on this middle name, I found a second marriage entry, this in book A, p. 11b for "Lafayett [sic] Hill to Mary Mathews 23 September 1840".

      Also in his July 1846 letter, John Lloyd writes, "She [his mother] has nobody living with her but Mr Hill & he is goin to move out west of the Colorado River this winter.". My search west of the Colorado for the
      whereabouts of Frances Lloyd Hill took me to the 1850 Fayette County, Texas census from the township of Round Top, where we find the following entry:
      HH 59 2 Sept 1850

      I. L. Hill, 36 y/o farmer, $5000 RE, born Georgia
      Frances Hill, 24 y/o, born Mississippi
      Isaac 3 y/o, born Texas

      We know from probate documents in Copiah County, Mississippi, that Frances Lloyd Hill was deceased by 1858. The 1860 census shows three siblings of Isaac P. Hill, Frances son, but no new wife yet. Which of these belonged to Frances I do not know. However, by 1870, there are listed other children in his family, I assume from a subsequent marriage or marriages. I would be interested in any information you can provide me about Isaac's family, and his children, especially those of his marriage to Frances Ann Lloyd. I will be happy to provide you will any information I have in return.

      Looking forward to hearing from you,

      Robert J. Stuart
      Arlington, Texas"
