Submitted by Tami Ramsey who believes that this family was from the Mason's Grove area of Madison Co. TN. Tami found the old Bible at an Antique Store in Virginia and the handwriting was so well preserved that she purchased the old bible and furnished the information to this project so that some family out there would know a little of their heritage... Tami transcribed the information in its original form so it is not alphabetized. The bible is fascinating because someone marked passages throughout the bible and dated it whenever someone was sick. I think Abram MASON might have purchased the bible after it had belonged to Zachariah BELL because there are two different handwritings for the BELL family and MASON family. The bible is in very worn condition but luckily the writing is legible. Some of the old ink ate through parts of pages and some things were written in pencil so they are hard to read ... Abram Mason sure was proud of that bible because he wrote all over the inside of it " Abram Mason HIS bible". I don't know whether there is an association between the BELL and MASON families but Tami says she'd love to find out ...Thank you Tami! :-)

In December of 1930 I know that the Bible belonging to Allen Hill was still in existence, plus in the letter I have from December of 1930 it says that the bible belonging to Sarah Garrett Hill was also available because a list of deaths and births from that bible were mentioned. The following are records from the bible:

I know these are not in any order, but this is the progression of the names and births and marriages as they appear in the two different columns in the family bible.

I also have records from the Moore family bible that belonged to Austin Elvy Moore ( 15 Aug 1804 - 16 Aug 1874) The copyright date of that bible is 1856. The records in the Moore family bible coincide with the records from the Hill family bible.

Transcribed by Martha Power Little
A small synopsis of the Hill family (by Martha Power Little):
The first Hill family of which we have a record is Allen Hill who was born 27 Dec 1769 on the Dan River, Pittsburg Co., Virginia. Although efforts have been made to find out the names of his parents, nothing is known about them. Allen married Sarah Garrett in East Tennessee in 1794. Sarah Garrett was born Feb 22, 1771 in Amelia County, Virginia. Nothing is known about her parents. After marrying, Allen Hill began to move westward from East Tennessee following the Cumberland River. He settled near Nashville, living on the Cumberland, Big Harpeth and the Little Harpeth Rivers where several of his children were born. These children were Jacob, Nancy, Byrd, Evalina, Eliza and John Garrett Hill. Later Allen Hill moved to Madison County, Tenn where he settled near Medon. It was here that he helped establish the Cane Creek Baptist Church. He died at Medon in 1857. John (Jack) Garrett, son of Allen Hill and Sarah Garrett Hill, married Jemima Cook of Medon, Tenn on 11 Feb 1826. After the signing of a treaty with the Chickasaw Indians which moved the Indians to Oklahoma and opened sections in North Mississippi to settlement, John G. Hill moved his family to Marshall County, Mississippi near Holly Springs in the Wesley Chapel neighborhood.
