It has always been a bit of a mystery as to his name. Was it Clellan, or Chellog. The newspaper article with the obit names his middle and so we have another possible.
He was the son of Robert Dickey Hillhouse and Rebecca Nancy Henry.
The Hillhouse and Dickey families traveled from Ireland to the USA together. I am not as sure of the origin of the Dickey family as the Hillhouse family. But they originated from Scotland to escape what most people migrate to other countries from....the powers that be, or in charge. Be it government, elected, or Kings and Queens.
I have this in my notes on my family tree for Abraham [of Artikelly] Hillhouse, Sr.:
According to evidence the Hillhouse name originated in Ayr. (Ayrshire) which is located on the southwest coast of Scotland below Glasgow. The earliest of the name to come to America was the founders of the New England branch 1718-1720 and the South Carolina branch about 1744. were Scotch-Irish from County Derry, Northern Ireland. Scotch-Irish were in reality Scots whose forebearers had emigrated from Scotland to into northern counties of Ireland where they had marked success and maintained there religious and cultural identity. The Hillhouse family left Aryshire for Derry sometime after 1638 during the disputes of the Presbyterian Coventers with Charles I and his pressure of conformity.
Early reference to the name appears in a document recording the appointment of a priest or clerk for the Parish of Kilmarnock in 1547 which lists the heads of families and contains the entry "Hillhouse 3". There is a Hillhouse place and postal station in Ayrshire 3 miles east of Troon. After several centuries and strain the name persists in the Shire. Hillhouse made a famous for a breed of cattle, made famous by a breeder named James Howie, from Ayrshire.
