RE: Daniel Adrian Hill

I came across an 1860 census record for Mariah and her children, which include Adrian and Agness, along with Augustus, Elisha and Emily. I think that I am going to stick with my original names until something comes along to document any changes. I am wondering at this point who the father is; I had thought it was John Hill but am thinking otherwise at this point. William E could be the answer but I'm not too sure of that one either.

Please let me know if you find anything more.

Daniel Adrian or Adern Hill

Thanks for writing about Daniel and the possible name difference. I can't really say one way or another; much of the information I've collected on someone who is possibly the Daniel A Hill who married Alice Mary Ann Dowdy could actually be someone else with the same name.

There is an 1870 census record for an Adrian Hill with a wife, whose name is enumerated as July. Do you know anything about a first marriage for Daniel Hill to Martha July Holly? There are two children at this census: Elizabeth, age 9 yrs and Robert A, age 7 yrs. If what you say is true, Robert's middle name could also be Adern or Adrian but he died after 1870 and I do not find him in the 1880 census. Amanda Elizabeth Hill Brooks lived until 1936 and is buried in Oklahoma.

If you want further communication about this, please write to me at

Horace Adern Rush, SR
This was my great grandfather. Horace Adern Rush JR was my grandfather. My mother Myrtle Pauline Rush (youngest daughter of his marraige to Stella Galleher) married Fountain Phillips and we only lived a few miles from him.
Adern SR has always been a mystery to our family as my grandfather had no recollection of him.
I am very thankful for the imformation. The only thing we had on Adern, SR was that he had married Agnes Hill and was listed in the 1870 census.

I would appreciate hearing from any of the distant cousins, kin etc. I live in the Nashville, TN area.
Any information would be greatly appreciated

Bob Phillips - grandson of Horace Adern Rush, JR

Hi James, I was checking out Shirley McKim's contributer's page to see why she has not responded to my requests, when I found David Drew's memorial and read the newspaper article you posted. It was great. Then I went to your page and found Capt. Charles Drew's memorial. I loved your bio. I like to see people take the time to add information so people seem real instead of just birth and death dates. You are very lucky to have so many photos of you ancestors. Keep up the good work.....
