Re: Central, SC - H. P. Hill family

In Reply to: Re: Central, SC - H. P. Hill family by Tempe Berggren of 1161

After a more thorough check of the first chapter on Early Settlers I found a paragraph which identifies "many other families who made a large contribution to the development of the town - the Garvins, the J. H. Lawrence family, the Elisha Lawrence family, the Ramsays, the Olivers, the Maws, the Johnstons, the Martins, the McDows, the Earles, the Ballentines, the Boggs, the ARNOLDS, the Shirleys, the Stephens, the Philpots, the Davises, the Halls, the Dobbins, the Wyatts, the Dobsons, the Hopkins, the Newtons, and the Abercrombies."

After further searching the census page with my great-grandfather, Henry P. Hill, who is family 15, I found that family 17 was F. N. ARNOLD, clerk in grocery store, Louellen his wife, and Joseph N. his son, age 1.

In addition, neighbors shown on the census and written about in the History of CENTRAL, SC were Ross EATON, James GAINES, James PEEK, and G. W. BROCK families. Some of the Photos included are of the G. W. Brock home, the Ross Eaton store, and the James H. Gaines home, all who were neighbors to my great-grandfather. All so close to him, but no mention of him. He also was a carpenter, working for the railroad, as did both sons, Percy and Herbert (my grandfather). Their daughters married BELLOTTE and STAHL apparently also connected to the railroad.

The railroad was first the Atlanta & Richmond Company, then Atlanta and Charlotte Air-Line Railway Company, then Richmond & Danville Railroad Company and finally Southern Railway, according to the author.

Hope this information is helpful to you, too.
