Birth: Oct. 5, 1818
Sweetwater
Monroe County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Jan. 20, 1882
Dade County
Missouri, USA

James is the son of Rev./Col. Joab Hill (1775-1847) and Elizabeth Lane (1784-1864). The Hill family migrated from Sweetwater, Tennessee to the northeast corner of Missouri. After their father's death in 1847, they went west to Oregon, except for one sister. James and his bride went to Oregon, then mined gold in California's gold rush. He came back to Missouri like he had promised his wife's parents he would. They settled in Dade and Greene Counties until the Civil War broke out, then they went to Texas "for the sake of peace" for a few years, then returned to this area.
They are parents of four sons and three daughters. Their firstborn son, William Shasta Hill, was the first white child born in Shasta, Butte, California, on 29 September 1851. He died 19 August 1854 in Ash Grove, Dade, Missouri and is possibly buried here with his parents.
