 BENJAMIN JEFFERSON C HILL

WORSHIPFUL MASTER

SPRING HILL MASONIC LODGE

1857 & 1859

 

Benjamin Jefferson C Hill, Jr. was born 1813 to Benjamin Jefferson C. Hill Sr. and Rebecca Wallace of Warren Co. Tennessee.   Benjamin Sr. was a brother of Henry John Alexander Hill, father of Dr. George Washington Hill.  Two children of record were born in the marriage of Benjamin Sr. and Rebecca....John Ashley Hill,  and Benjamin Jefferson C Hill, Jr. , our subject.   

 

Benjamin Sr. divorced Rebecca in 1840.    Rebecca and her sons moved to Texas at some point and were recorded in the 1860 Spring Hill Census living with Dr. George Washington Hill.

 

The 1862 will of John R Hill states that he was a nephew of Benjamin J C Hill and a cousin to siblings Mary Jane & Benjamin J C HIll Jr.   John R Hill was a son of George Washington Hill  and a grandson of John Ashley & Lucinda Langston Hill.

 

Interesting....John R Hill's will also left property to Anna C Sneed, daughter of N T Sneed....who followed Benjamin Jefferson Hill in the role of Grand Master of the Spring Hill Lodge.      Had Anna been Anna C Hill who had married one of the Sneed sons...or....could she have been the "Object of the affections" of John R Hill??
