Notes by B. R. Randolph:
          [Referring to Hill cenotaph] Luraney and Lucindy were twins.
          There are a number of unmarked graves in this old cemetery, among which is undoubtedly the grave of Mary Hill, sister of Allen Hill and wife of Martin True. Martin True was a Revolutionary War soldier.
          Anderson Co, Texas is where two of Allen Hill's brothers in law settled, the Rev Thomas Ranks who married Sarah "Sally" Hill and George Ranks who married Luraney Hill. Thomas and Sarah (Hill) Ranks are buried in old Antioch Cemetery near Montalba in Anderson Co, Texas. Their markers were still readable a few years ago but have since been destroyed by vandals. George and Thomas Hank's sister, Joicey, married Reuben Hill. Reuben and Joicey died in Maury Co, Tenn. Allen' s brother Daniel Hill is buried in Rose Hill Cemetery in McNairy Co, Tenn. These Hill's are children of Thomas & ______ (Hamblen) Hill of Pittsylvania Co, Va.
