Notes:

On the 1840 Census George Hills and family are listed two lines before Jesse Hills. This is not proof that George was the father of Jesse, but the fact makes the relationship probable.

  5. Ibid.

    Jesse Hill was born in New York State, son of a veteran of the war of 1812, and was there reared. After his marriage to Pamelia Gould, a sister of Jay Gould, the famous New York financier and millionaire, they came in 1845 to Concord, Jefferson county, Wis., where, after working for others for some time, he bought a farm, on which he built a log house and began farming. In 1861, with four of his sons, he enlisted in the Civil War in which he and his stepson Elijah lost their lives. There were seven children in the family, of whom five, John, William, Sr., Calvin, Oliver and Roxy Jane, were by Jesse Hill's first wife, Pamelia. The mother dying about 1849, Mr. Hill had married for his second wife Mrs. Smith, by whom he had two children, Anna and Delight. Mrs. Hill by her marriage to Mr. Smith, also had two children, Volney and Elijah.

    I believe the writer is wrong about Pamelia Gould being a sister to Jay Gould, the financier. The dates and places don't mesh.]
