Descendants of John Hill and Margaret Covington of Davidson Co., Tennessee
John Hill and his wife Margaret Covington migrated to Davidson County, Tennessee, from Rocklingham County, North Carolina in December 1809. The ancestry of John is uncertain at this time. Researcher believes that he may be the son of a John Hill who in turn was the son of Micajah or Dutton Hill but there will need to be additional research to confirm this. John served in the War of 1812, participating in the Battle of New Orleans with General Andrew Jackson.
Presented here are some of the descendants of John and Margaret, primarily through his son Alexander Hill who married Florence Omega Bumpass, researcher's great-great-grandparents. William Corn, researcher's fourth cousin, has done considerable research on the descendants of John and Margaret Hill and has published part 4 of his report on their descendants which includes all information contained in the previous parts. This can be found at the Metro Archives located in Nashville, Tennessee.
