Benjamin Hill

Benjamin HILL is my sixth great grand uncle; he is the son of my sixth great grandparents Ebenezer and Abiel (SNELL) HILL.  He is the fifth of nine children, born 25 September 1715 in Biddeford, Maine.[1]  Benjamin married first, Ann HAYES, intention filed 24 March 1738 in Biddeford, Maine.[2]  Benjamin and Ann had eight children:  Ebenezer, Sarah, Joanna, Mehitable, Benjamin, Eunice, Joseph and Reuben.  Benjamin married second, Elizabeth GILPATRICK, 9 October 1760 in Biddeford.[3]  They had nine children:  Abiel, Joshua, John, Benjamin, Joseph, Samuel, Molly (Mary), Elisha and Betty.  He died 8 November 1791 in Biddeford.  It is believed that he died 8 November 1791 in Biddeford.

 

Notes:

Benjamin was the first child born once the family returned from Canada after being abducted by Indians 10 August 1703.  There is a six year gap between him and his older sister, I’m unsure if there were other children that didn’t survive and are not mentioned or if there just were no children during that time.
