Thomas Hill II, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Thomas Hill II might describe his life as follows.

I was born in Spotsylvania County, the eldest son of another Thomas Hill and, like him, I was illiterate. My wife was Barsheba Abney, a daughter of our neighbor Dennett Abney. After 1750 we moved to Cumberland County where the tax register for 1760 lists me next to Thomas Guthrey
I made my will in Cumberland County 6 October 1770 remembering my wife, Barsheba, and our nine children, and was dead by 25 October 1773 when the witnesses proved my will in court. 
Although our sons Joseph and Dennett remained in Cumberland, John, Thomas, William, and James, along with their sister Ann, who married my neighbor’s son Travis Guthrey, moved to the Catawba Creek area of Halifax County

We have yet to find where in Cumberland County Thomas lived. Nor do we know when he purchased the 100 acres he owned at his death.
Thomas and his sons lived in Southam Parish where processioners returns of 1773 placed Thomas and John neighbors to Thomas Guthrey, James Southall, James Brown, Joseph Calland, and Jesse Sanders. Although not then a landowner, Dennett was present when the boundary of his father’s farm was walked,  in a precinct between Col. Bolling’s Road, the Main Ridge Road, Buckingham Road and the county line.
