Family legend says that Captain John Dixon Hill, after the Civil War, between purchase and state land grants, was able to provide farms for his four surviving sons. In addition to teaching and clerking in stores, he was also able to help his sons farm. He and second wife Margaret Sarah Marshall continued to live with them until their deaths in 1915.
