  • Notes 
    • In 1802 Benjamin Hill, Sr., removed with his family to Carroll county, Virginia, and in the autumn of 1806 became one of
      the honored pioneers of Indiana, locating in the midst of the unbroken forest, about three miles east of the present
      city of Richmond. There the family suffered all the hardships and privations incident to frontier life, and also bore a
      prominent and active part in the work of development and progress. Not long after their arrival in Wayne county the
      wife of Benjamin Hill died, and he afterward married Martha Cox, who was born November 28, 1779, and come to Indiana in
      1807 with her mother and two sisters. One sister, Jane Cox, married John Harvey and lived near Centerville. The other
      sister, Mary Cox, became the wife of John Small. The mother resided with her daughter Martha until her death.
