      The following is a letter dated Sept. 24, 1901 written by Mrs. Annie Hill Broach of Meridian, MS, to James Monroe Hill in Austin, TX. It provided me with some new names and places I did not have in my data
      base before. Sent to me by Robert Steele of Dallas, TX, copied from the Texas State Archives.

      "Meridian, Miss.
      Sept. 24, 1901

      Mr. James Monroe Hill,
      Dear Sir and Cousin,

      A few days since a friend handed me a Cincinnati paper for

      When upon opening it how pleased was I to see your picture
      confronting me. For in a few moments I found you were my first

      Cousin Ben Harvey Hill of Georgia was my double first cousin,
      his parents and mine being brothers and sisters.

      My father was Allen Hill, a Baptist preacher. My mother was
      Miss Annie Parham, also of Georgia. Born to them were eleven
      children, all of whom have died except Ceylon S. Hill, now living in
      Okolona, Arkansas, and a sister older than myself. She is 68 years
      old. I am 63. Both of us widows. She has one son. I have no
      children. Her name is Martha Adelaide Williams. Mine is Annie
      Alzena Broach.

      Our mother having died while we were quite young, our father
      remarried in a short time and removed to Arkansas with his wife, a
      good woman, where he died several years since. So we have had no one
      to tell us of our Georgia relatives, as much as we desired to know.

      We are even ignorant of the first names of our grandparents.
      Sister thinks Grandfather Hill's name was Asa, but not sure. We
      would sometimes hear from Aunt Mary Turrentine, but since her death
      no one has written us. We feel entirely alone in this great big
      world, having no relatives near us.

      Will you kindly add to our pleasure by writing and telling us
      something of our Georgia kin?

      What was the name of Cousin Ben's father and mother? Also that
      of your parents? Did you know, or hear, of Aunt Mary Ann Tucker? I
      think she was my mother's own aunt on her mother's side. She was a
      wealthy maiden lady.

      I guess you knew my uncle Anderson Parham? I knew him, he
      having moved to Lafayette City, this State, but finally moved to

      As soon as I saw your picture I was impressed with the striking
      resemblence to a brother of mine who died in Ardmore, Indian Terr.
      three years ago.

      Oh, how we have longed, all these long years, to hear some one
      tell us of our kin in Georgia. Anything you will be kind enough to
      write us will add joy to our hearts.

      Trusting we will hear from you soon,

      I am sincerely,
      Your cousin

      (Mrs.) Annie A. Broach
      11th St. & 28th Ave.
      Meridian, Miss.

      James Madison Hill did respond just days later on Sept. 29, 1901. However, in the 1936 notes of Lucy Amanda Hill Jones, she states they never again heard from Annie.
