This current book focuses on the life of Abner Hill, son of Robert and Tabitha Hill, and his many descendants. Abner Hill was probably born in Surry County, Virginia where his parents were living at the time of his birth in about 1723. Abner is found on land records in early Edgecombe County, NC and even in records of Nash County formed from Edgecombe. By the mid to late 1760s, Abner moved to Orange County in that part that later became Chatham County and is now Lee County. Near the end of his life, he sold all of his land in 1786 and moved to Wilkes County, GA. He only lived until 1788 when he filed a will and his estate was administered. There are surviving estate papers, but the will book that contained his will was burned in an accidental fire.Abners descendants are many. They are scattered over North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Tennesse, Illinois and certainly various other places currently not researched. This book contains a full investigation of all original documents supporting Abners life and those of his descendants. There are 237 embedded digital images linked in this eBook along with census records, marriage licenses, tax lists, newspaper articles, maps, original deeds, land plats, etc., and 376 endnotes documenting the research. This research supports the DNA analysis for Group 8 on the www.hillnda.com site. To the knowledge of this researcher, over 90 percent of this data has never been published before.
