Thanks so much Jean! Wow...This info you sent on Robert Hill and Eliz so so so close..but appears to be not the same line..but almost too coincidental... I will have to double check some things...

The children names of Robert and Elizabeth Hill-Gleaves that you sent have three similiarities but also several differnces.. I think you'll see how ironic this is...

My Robert Hill
marries Louisa Harrison in l834
Dies young (according to several family writings/lore/letters) after all children born leaving his wife with several small children in l845
Your Robert Hill marries Eliz Gleaves who dies in l833! So, Robert could have remarried Louisa as above in l834 theoretically.

Robert and louisa's childrens names are

William G. Hill born 1835 but your data says l826
John M. Hill born 8/26/1836 but your JM Hill born 1828
Robert Thomas Hill born 1839 but your Robert born 1832
Then, my line shows, Cyrus, Preston, James M. and Armistead, while your line shows Mary, Minerva Nancy, Sarah, Felix and Thoma Payton....It is so interesting three children named same..but birth year off..slightly...I am sure the John M. Hill birthdate is accurate..The others I assume are...

Probably different lines..but close..

My only question is if my any chance you have middle initials on those Children of your line..., for example, is you William G. Hill, does G. stand for Green. Do you know if John M. Hill became a writer (that is my gggrandafther) and or have middle initital for your Robert born in l832, my Robert's middle initial for the child of Robert was Tomas.. Gosh, if you had any more info on these children by middle initials, and/or if there is any descrepancies on dates..please let me know...but may just be a total co-incidence...!!!!!
Thanks so advance if you have any more info on those Hill's!!

Thanks again..and if I find out more..too, I'll get back to you...
