In my search to identify the parents of my gggrandmother Elizabeth
Thornton, Sills, born 1795, who was married in Sampson County, N.
Carolina, in 1818, I found the will of Francis Hill, dated ca 1800.
Francis Hill mentions his daughter Martha Hill who married John
Elizabeth Thornton Sills's son Lee Sills married Sarah Ann Lee.
Elizabeth named a daughter Martha.
Elizabeth's daughter Sally Sills married a John Thornton.
The Sills were close to the Lee, Westbrook and Hill families.
Francis Hill had a son Bennett Hill. Elizabeth Thornton Sills'
grandson was named Alfred BENNETT Roberson.
Could my Elizabeth Thornton Sills be the daughter of Martha Hill and
John Thornton? I would be grateful for any info on these people.
