Samuel was the son and second oldest child of Austin & Sarah Elizabeth (Sally) Porter Hill, husband of Pernecy (Wheeler Mann) Hill, and father of Lulu May (Hill) Campbell.

The place of birth for Samuel according to the 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880 census records is Illinois but his granddaughter, Thura (Campbell) Vikturek, and the 1900 census recorded Kentucky. His parents were married in White County, IL in 1821 so it is assumed that he was born in Illinois.

The birth date shown for Samuel Porter Hill (19 Apr 1824) is from his headstone and Thura. The obituary says the year was 1826. The 1850, 1860, and 1880 censuses estimate about 1826-7. The 1870 estimates about 1824-5. The 1900 census shows his birth date as Apr 1825. I have chosen to record the date Thura recorded and is on the stone.

His obituary indicates he came to Hamilton County, circa 1857. He is shown in White County for the 1850 census and all of his brothers and sisters were from White Co., IL.
