Family legend says that Captain John Dixon Hill, after the Civil War, between purchases, state land grants, and investments was able to provide farms for his four surviving sons. All remaining acres went to his sons at his death. 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.
