He was born in the State of Virginia, April 26, 1754, and was a soldier of the Revolution. He removed some forty-five years ago from Virginia, and settled in Wilkes County, Ga.

Thomas Hilley, my 5th great-grandfather. Thomas passed a torch of freedom to his family. We know he fought America and for our freedom. Please let us all stand with Thomas to keep it free through these perilous days. With respect...
