About Joseph Hill

The following is from HISTORY of CHAMPAIGN COUNTY OHIO- Page 801:

"James Dunlap Powell...... He was married September 9, 1845, on the farm he now lives on, to Miss Minerva Hill, daughter of Joseph and Mary (Purcell) Hill, natives of Virginia. Her father was first married in Kentucky, to Mary Oliver, to whom were born eight children. ln 1802 they came to Champaign Co., Ohio, settling on the farm where Mr. Powell now resides, and there his wife died. Some time after his wife's death he returned to Kentucky on a visit, where he was married to Mary Purcell, daughter of George and Margaret Purcell, natives of that state. Joseph Hill was the first white settler of what is now Concord Township: served in the war of 1812, and although a poor man when he settled in the woods of Concord Township, he accumulated a comfortable estate."
