RE: Henry Hill
Jennifer, I have never been to Randolph County,
Indiana. I live in Wichita, Kansas. For the past many years I use the winter to chase down
family history that was given to me in an old
suitcase my grandfather had. In it were a series of letters that spanned the 1840's through
the Civil War time periods. My ancestors would
not be integrated with yours as I think they came to the Ward Township in Randolph County, Indiana in 1848 and left to go to Wayne County
in roughly 1858.
In my previous post, the homestead piece of
land they had was south of the cemetery perhaps less than .5 mile. Since you grew up there, you might be able to help me learn more about the church that stood alongside the cemetery. I have a Ward Township map from the late 1880's and it shows a church right off the highway where the cemetery is located. So far I have had little luck in finding any history on the old Prospect Church. You know anything abuot it?
Thanks for the feedback yours is the first I have gotten from any of these internet sites. The family migrated from the Deerfield area and went to three destinations: Economy and Milton which I believe are in Wayne County and as far away as Paris, Edgar County Illinois. My main research efforts have been toward a Civil War Miller, Samuel James who wrote many letters of his battles as an Infantry Officer with the 69th Indiana volunteers.

Henry Hill
Jennifer, a wonderful photo!

This Henry Hill would have been married to Elizabeth Morgan Ross (Miller) from the Preble County Ohio Millers. They migrated to Indiana
in spring 1848 from Dayton, Ohio and farmed an 80 acre plot of land a little north of the cemetery on section 25 of the Ward Township.

There is another Henry Hill from the Wayne Township that had a lot more land and was in
the state from the early 1800's. My Hill family managed to work their farm until 1858 when some of them moved to Milton, Indiana and others
went to Economy, Indiana and as far as Paris, Illinois.

Elizabeth Morgan Ross migrated to the Preble County Ohio area from around Hackensack, New Jersey at age 16 in 1823 and married my third great grandfather, George Miller, a son of Frederick Miller, the Virginia born Revolutionary War Soldier, in the Twin Township of Preble County.

Jen,
I am pretty sure this is Andrew's stone. Can read Key and Feb on the stone.
A scout doing an Eagle scout project piled the stones and then set them in cement in two rows. This is not the exact burial site for Andrew but it is the correct cemetery.
