Hill Family

William Hill was born in Virginia in 1710, son of Sion Hill and Elizabeth Marriott. He married Susanna Smathers in 1736. William moved to Surry Co., NC (present-day Stokes County) about 1760. He settled on a large farm west of what is now known as the Voss farm in Walnut Cove. William Hill served in the Provincial Congress which met in Hillsboro on August 20, 1775. He died in Stokes County, NC in 1784 and is buried in the Voss Family Cemetery.
