    • Some researchers have her as Sarah Brown Cameron. The Southern Christian Advocate, March 17, 1875, the book "Troup Co. Georgia and her People", Vol. 4 (Oct. 1986) gives her middle name as "Battle".
      Since her grandmother's maiden name was Brown, and her father's middle name was also Brown, it appears more likely Sarah Brown Cameron is correct.

      "Hills Moving Away.
      A Change of Residence.
      We regret to learn that Mrs. Sarah B. Hill, widow of the late Dr. John S. Hill, of Long Cane, with her daughter, Mrs. Eula Hill, will move to Atlanta some time during the month of December.
      Mrs. Hill, the mother, is a daughter of the late Thomas Cameron and has lived in our county nearly all her life. Her husband was a prominent citizen, a representative in the Georgia Assembly, 1855-56, and state senator, 1857-58, and brother of Senator Benjamin Harvey Hill. She resides at the old Hill homestead, where the father and mother of the illustrious Georgian are buried. May their new home be a pleasant one. We give them up with regret. Thrusday, November 29, 1888"
      Ed. Note: Dr. John Stith Hill married Sarah B. Cameron, a daughter of Thomas Cameron, son of James and Sarah Brown Cameron, who was born April 26, 1796 and died September 15, 1859. Cameron families were early settlers of Long Cane community, Troup County.
      Dr. Hill was a son of John Hill (1785-1848) and wife, Sarah Parham Hill (1790-1854), whose plantation home stands at Long Cane..."
