They married on Feb. 6, 1845, according to the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index. They had four children in the 1850 census: Geoerge, 4; John, 3; Willis, 1; and Mary E., 1 month. Cynthia presumably died between 1850 and 1852 because on March 29, 1853, he married Sarah E. Christian in Gallatin County.

NOTES ON DEBORAH HILL:
PER ROOTSWEB MESSAGE FROM K. POWELL:
that Deb's brother Morris Hill's (this is getting tricky) son Benjamin O Hill's widow Eliza Newman remarried Willis B Hargrave, son of Seth (I'm told; unverified for myself). This second set of children for Eliza includes a William Willis Hargrave. The 2 married 1878 and combined familes and made more ...AND..... Deborah's brothers (or half-brothers) Joseph and Morris (and maybe Abner too) HILL settled at Carmi late 1820s. Morris' son Benjamin O. HILL married Eliza NEWMAN. The HILL sibling's father was John of Tioga (later Chemung) Co, NY. Her brothers (half-brothers?) Morris married Caroline PERRYMAN 1837 Carmi, White Co, IL. Next came brother Joseph and NY-born wife Mary Ann WEAVER with 3 children - their first IL-born was Fanny b. 1842 Carmi, White Co, IL.
