About Margaret Hill

  • In 1790 when the UNITED STATES CENSUS was taken in MONTGOMERY COUNTY, North Carolina CORNELIUS ROBERTSON (II) brother of "Black Charles" Robertson, of Tennessee, was perhaps a little under 21 years of age, though listed as "over sixteen", which indicated he was born about after 1770. He married CLARISSA HILL who was born in 1779, by 1793-4. Notes gathered by this compiler establishes the fact that that CORNELIUS ROBINSON emigrated from North Carolina to KENTUCKY where he lived for a time, and went from there to ALABAMA, where he was Captain of a Company who went against the Indians ometime during thc 1830's in a Battalion commanded by R.E.B. BAYLOR, who was also from KENTUCKY. Col. Baylor was both a Minister and a lawyer and came to Texas and settled at OLD INDEPENDENCE. He became one of the first members of the TEXAS SUPREME COURT after Statehood. The sons of CORNELIUS ROBERTSON also settled at INDEPENDENCE, and CLARISSA (HILL) ROBERTSON died and is buried there in the old cemetery, where this compiler copied her tombstone inscription about 1938, which recites that she died there, the relict of CORNELIUS ROBERTSON on FEBRUARY 5, 1864, aged 84 years and six months. This places her birth in 1779. Who was she?
