From History of Rush County, Indiana, Brant & Fuller, 1888, page 587:
       Mrs. Miriam Hill, an aged and venerable widow lady of Carthage, was born in Randolph County, N.C., October 8, 1802. She is therefore in the eighty-sixth year of her age. She was the daughter of Thomas and Mary Thornburg, who were respectively natives of Guilford and Randolph counties, N.C. Her father was the son of Thomas and Martha Thornburg, and her mother was the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (Phelps) Winslow, all of whom were natives of North Carolina. Our subject was married to Aaron Hill in September, 1823. He was also a native of Randolph County, N. C., born December 2, 1785. He was the son of William and Mary (Smith) Hill, the former of whom was born in 1740, and the latter was born in 1745. The first wife of Aaron Hill was Mary Henley, daughter of John and Mary Henley, by whom he became the father of six children: Micajah, John, Mary, Margaret, Penelope, and Henley, of whom, John, Mary and Henley are deceased. The first named, John Hill, was assassinated shortly after the late war by a bushwacker, in Douglas County, Kan., whither he moved form North Carolina in 1861. Aaron Hillís first wife died in 1820, and after his marriage to Miriam Thornburg, he pursued the vocation of a farmer until his death, which occurred May 29, 1863. His second marriage, resulted in the birth of eight children, as follows: Thomas T., William T., Nathan H., Asenath H., Abigail N., Joseph B., Aaron O., and Miriam E., all of whom are living. In February, 1877, his surviving widow came to Rush County, and has since resided in Carthage. She is a member of the Friendsí Church, as was also her husband. Their children are also members of the Friendsí Church.
