Isaac Hill & Mary Stallings

Sally’s great-great-great-great Grandparents:

Isaac Hill ca 1712 – 1772 | parents
& bef 1749 [Mary] Stallings | parents
of Bethlehem X-roads, Hertford County, North Carolina

After looking closely at the records; it appears that the parents of this Isaac Hill are Elinor Bush and Michael Hill son of Isaac Hill who signed his will in 1710.
Elinor Bush Hill married second by 8 Feb 1714/15 Francis McClendon.

Lott Stalling of Bertie County appears to be the father of Isaac Hill’s wife

Bertie Wills: Lott (L) Stallings 5 Nov 1749 Jan Ct 1749 proved at Eden House of Chowan County “…being sick and weak of body..”
– Son Samuell Stallings – my land on Belley Hacck (sic) known as the Elbo, also gun, cattle, etc. My dwelling plantation is to be sold to pay for the above mentioned land.
– Son-in-law Isaac Hill – land I bought of Joseph Nuby in the fork adj. Thomas Newby.
– Granddaughter Sarah Hill – cow and calf.
– Daughter Ann Stallings – rest of my estate.
Ex. son Samuell.

Children of Isaac Hill died 1772 Hertford Co, NC:
1. Isaac Hill
2. Pheraby Hill ca 1740 – 1813
married Thomas Ward – will Bertie Co 1796
3. Sarah Hill
4. Michael Hill

I have traced my Hill Line back to Isaac Hill, who lived in Cumberland County as early as 1762. He married Mary?, Children, Michael, Eligah, Ezeckiel, Marcy, Sarah, Nancy, Martha, Zilphia

Isaac was born c1730’s,he died in Cheraw Precinct(Darlington District) S.C. in 1799
His son Michael was born before 1755,Eligah B. 1760

I have often thought that he may be the grandson of Isaac Hill who left will in 1710 in Chowan ??

Do you have a will on the Isaac that Died in Hertford Co. ??
What are your thoughts on this.

  1. I am hunting for the parents of Ezekiel Hill, born 1790, unknown where, and married Rachel Blount. They ended up in Missouri. I have been trying for years to find out about Ezekiel, but to no avail. I have all kinds of info after he went to Missouri. Any help would be appreciated. Ezekiel is my 3rd great grandfather.

    1. Hi Larry – I’m not sure how often you check this, but could your Ezekiel be the son of Ezekiel, the son of Isaac Hill b. 1735 NC d. 1799 Darlington County SC?
