States: Ohio: Clermont
I found this in the "History of Clermont and Brown Counties". It is regarding the early Methodists. I have a lot of roots in Clermont but the Hill's & Mitchell's were a part of the early Methodist religion in the area.
"After migrating from the battle ground of Antietam, where his first child was born in 1762, to North Carolina, and then to Kentucky, John Hill, the elder, finally settled near Loveland in 1798, with several of six sons and two daughters, of whom some were already married. On January 27, 1799, Samuel Hill, not yet 20 years old, was married to Mrs. Francis McCormick's sister, Jane Easton, then not quite 16, but an earnest member of McCormick's class, where the courtship began. For the Hills were zealous Methodists, and made haste to join the class eight miles to the south, where Joseph Hill and his wife Rose, and Phillip Hill and his wife Elizabeth, met Ezekiel and Phoebe Dimmitt, with the Gest brothers who came from ten miles still farther to the southeast. The Hills had the company of John Ramsey and his wife for six miles, and on the way, found another faithful brother, William Salter, but lived but two miles from the meeting house, which was McCormick's cabin. The Dimmitts after the second year, had the company of Jacob Teal and his wife, who lived four or five miles out on their path, over which came Barbara Malott a year later, when the Garlands settled out toward the Mitchell's, who for a year before, had come alone from four miles to the northeast. Part of John Hill's family moved to Warren County, and the older sons came on from Kentucky to Ohio, where John Jr, Jacob, Thomas and Samuel settled in Stonelick Township."
