In Reply to: HILLHOUSE, Josiah 1805 by Kristy Eidson of 539

GGparents were William Hillhouse, b. abt 1715 in Ireland , d. bef 1790 S.Carolina and Sarah
(we think Griswold was surname).

Josiah m. Margaret Watts, b. 12Jun1807 in VA., d. 29Nov1895 in Stoutland, Camden Co., Mo. Marriage date 1824 in Tn. Both are buried in the Hillhouse Cemetery outside of Richland,Mo.

Melissa Jane, b. 1843
Monroe Dotson, b. 4May1845
Thomas W., b. 13Jul1847
James, b. 1849
Mary Ellen, b. 1853
First 3 were born in Giles Co., Tn., rest in Camden Co., Mo.
Jehugh Franklin was my great grandfather and we have a lot of info on this branch of the Hillhouses, most of it pretty well documented. Too much to type, but if inquirer will e-mail her snail mail address, we can send more by mail.
