Today In Genealogy History – July 24, 2011

Isaiah Hill and Lucy Murphy were married 184 years ago in Garrard County, Kentucky – July 1827.  The actual date is not to be found.  The marriage bond at the courthouse is not in the individual sleeve like the others.  It is unsure if it has been misfiled or taken.  The clerks did not know until I brought it to their attention.  Isaiah was the son of Jesse Hill and Jane Southern; Lucy is the daughter of John Murphy and Mary Polly Yarbrough.  Isaiah and Lucy had thirteen children.  Lucy died during or shortly after the birth of their daughter, Lucy, March 4, 1850.  Isaiah was killed in the Hill-Evans Feud two years later, March 13, 1852.
