BENJAMIN JEFFERSON C
SPRING HILL MASONIC
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
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
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??
