This genealogy is a compilation of the work of many persons, including myself, who have researched the families included herein. In some cases, names of the researcher is contained along with the family, but in most families, it is not. A list of all persons who contributed to this genealogy is available for your convenience. As always, much of this work is not documented, and is not written in stone. Please advise me of any changes that need to be made, as well as additions, and supporting documentation where available.
The William Hilton family in this genealogy, originated in South Carolina, migrated to Mississippi, via Alabama, after which many of the families continued to Louisiana, and Texas. Today, these families can be found in most of the 50 United States.
|MR. and MRS. HILTON:|
|Known children of Mr. and Mrs. Hilton are:|
WILLIAM HILTON2, born between 1780 - 1790 in South Carolina, and died April 23, 1843 in Monroe Co Alabama.
|3 ii.||JAMES COLUMBUS HILTON, born c1801 in South Carolina, and probably died between September 1850 - July 1860 in Mississippi|
|4 iii.||THOMAS HILTON, born c1805 in South Carolina, and died before 1850 in Mississippi|
|2.||WILLIAM HILTON2 (Mr.1) was born between 1780 & 1790 in South Carolina, and died April 23, 1843 in Monroe Co Alabama.
He married ANN / MARY / JOSEY / AMEY There appears to be some confusion on her name, but I believe she was called Amey. Her maiden name is unknown.
|Children of William and Amey are:||
William Hilton and two of his brothers left Sumpter Co moving to Mississippi when William got sick in Monroe Co Alabama where he died.
While I do not recall where this information came from, another researcher, Mike Little, disputes this claim, his views on this are as follows: I don't think that the Hilton brothers were traveling together if you can believe the place of birth on the 1850 census records. If they were traveling when he died in Alabama in 1843 then how do you explain that a lot of his nephews and nieces were born in Mississippi prior to 1843? I noticed #15, William A. Hilton3, born c1831 in Mississippi -- that would have been born in Mississippi 12 years before. I can understand a few "errors" but there are several that suggest that they migrated at different times. Unless there were other brothers.
One researcher shows his birth date as September 19, 1770 and death date as April 23, 1843, and that his mothers name was Ann. This information was apparently concluded from a tombstone inscription found in the SC Magazine of Ancestry, Vol 1, page 194, where is shows several inscriptions from Rehoboth Cemetery in Clarendon Co SC. One stone has written, Sacred to the Memory of William Hilton, Departed this life, 23 April 1843, aged 72 yrs, 7 mo and 4 days. I cannot deny or confirm this information, but it would conflict with other sources that tell us William died in Alabama .... unless his body was shipped back to SC for burial.
According to Dr. Jackie Hilton, they also had a son, James A. Hilton, born c1829, who was married to Elizabeth Lucinda Mullican. He writes: James A. Hilton is undoubtedly the son of either William or Thomas Hilton, most probably William and Josey, though the census of 1850 shows him to be born in Mississippi. It is possible he was born after his fathers death in Alabama, or that the census is in error. 1850 census of Simpson Co Mississippi, household #439-439 has James A. Hilton, age 21, Lucinda Hilton, age 20, George H. Hilton, age 7/12, all born in Mississippi
Dr. Jackie Hilton also shows that Humphrey Hilton is the son of William Issac Hilton. From information I have gathered, I think he is more likely a grandson. In 1850, Simpson Co Mississippi, household #331, an Amey Hilton is living next to William Isaac Hilton. She is aged 52, and has a child, Humphrey C. Hilton, age 10 living with her. I believe that this is the wife of William, and that William is deceased, probably in 1843 as stated. The child may or may not be hers, but I feel more like he would be a grandchild.
WILLIAM ISAAC HILTON3, born April 18, 1818 in South Carolina, and died February 23, 1904 in Harrisville, Simpson Co Mississippi, burial in Harrisville Cemetery, Simpson Co Mississippi
|6 ii.||JOHN JAMES HILTON, born November 22, 1819 in South Carolina|

THOMAS NORVELL HILTON, born June 10, 1825 in South Carolina, and died August 18, 1868.
|10 vi.||LARKIN MERRIT HILTON, born c1828|
HUMPHREY CARROLL HILTON, born June 1839 in Mississippi - I believe he is more likely a grandson, but cannot figure out who's child he might be, so will put what I can find in census in these pages.
James Michael Hilton sends the following from South Carolina State Archives and at the Bureau of Land Management:
William Hilton had a plat for 450 acres of land in Craven Co South Carolina on 29 January 1756 followed by Andrew Hilton in 1758 and Richard in 1759. Amey Hilton had a plat for land in 1772, adjoining Andrew Helton.
James Helton, will 1798 Clarendon County [Sumter Co. SC] names:
Wife - Rebecca
Sons_ John James Helton, William Jessee Helton, Joshua Colette Hilton
If sons die without issue, brother William Helton to inherit.
Mentioned John Ridgell.
Richard Ridgell Will, 1823 Sumter Dist, mentions - son John Ridgell 2 dau's- Rebekah Hilton, ect.
JAMES COLUMBUS HILTON2 (Mr.1) was born c1801 in South Carolina, and probably died before July 1860 in Mississippi. One researcher shows him in Middlesex England in 1861
He married ELIZABETH TAYLOR. She died after 1870. There seems to be some confusion between this family and that of #6 John James Hilton, son of William and Amey. I do not know where the name 'Columbus' or 'Taylor' comes from in this genealogy, it is in an old file I have on my computer.
|Children of James and Elizabeth are:||Simpson Co Mississippi 30 September 1850 pg 307 #289/289
Bt 5, Simpson Co Mississippi 27 July 1860 #56/56 2 doors from Wm. I. Hilton

He married PHEBE J. MAHAFFEY, daughter of William and Mary Mahaffey. She was born July 19, 1811 in Georgia, and died June 01, 1874.
|Children of Thomas and Phebe are:|| Simpson Co Mississippi 05 October 1850 pg 310 #337/337
By 1860, Phebe has remarried to Dempsey Touchstone, the son of Green Touchstone and Sally Stanley, and widower of Sally Millsaps. Sally had died in 1854. They, along with her 2 sons, Carson, age 16, and Robert, age 14, are living in the home with CC Barlow and Mary J. Mahaffey Barlow, Mary being Phebe's niece.

GEORGE W. HILTON, born c1841 in Mississippi. George, age 17 is living with in Polk Co Texas with his sister Mary Loper in the 1860 census, but was no longer found in 1870. A George W. Hilton died who fought in the Civil War with the Simpson County Regiment, and was killed in battle. Possibly George had returned to Simpson County before the war started
AMOS CARSON HILTON, born December 12, 1843 in Mississippi, and died June 24, 1917 in Mississippi
|ix.||ROBERT T. HILTON, born c1844 in Mississippi.|
WILLIAM ISAAC HILTON3, (William2, Mr.1), son of William and Ann / Mary / Josie 'Amey' Hilton, was born April 18, 1818 in South Carolina, and died February 23, 1904 in Harrisville, Simpson Co Mississippi.
He married SARAH AMANDA PEARSON in 1844 in Selma, Dallas Co Alabama. Sarah was born June 24, 1828 in Alabama, and died January 26, 1917. William and Sarah are buried at Harrisville Cemetery, Harrisville, Simpson Co Mississippi.
|Simpson Co Mississippi 04 October 1850 pg 310 #330/330
Living next door is Amey Hilton, age 52, born in SC, with child Humphrey C. Hilton, age 10. Is she Wm's mother, and who is the child, Humphrey.
Harrisville, Simpson Co Mississippi 27 July 1860 pg 145-146 #59/59
He is two doors from Elizabeth Hilton, age 50, with child, Alexander Hilton, age 17. She is the widow of James Hilton.
Westville, Simpson Co Mississippi 05 July 1870 pg 352 #213/213
I am unsure of who Charles and Henry are. Also, they live two doors from an Annie Hilton, age 67, with child, Elizabeth Hilton, age 10, is she Wm's mother? If Amey, in 1850 is his mother, at age 52, I don't think Annie will be his mother at at 67, 20 years later. And who's child is Elizabeth? Wm and Sarah's children, Amanda, Sarah, Brady, and Isaac Wm, are not in this census, have they died? Samuel is not in the census either, but may have left home.
Dst. 4, Simpson Co Mississippi 24 June 1880 pg 265 #88/94

|Children of William and Sarah are:|
JOHN JAMES HILTON4, born December 29, 1845 in Alabama, and died March 02, 1927 in Harrisville, Simpson Co Mississippi.

SOLOMON A. HILTON, born April 29, 1851 in Harrisville, Simpson Co Mississippi, and died December 19, 1912 in Desoto Parish Louisiana.
SAMUEL J. HILTON, born 1853 in Harrisville, Simpson Co Mississippi. One researcher shows the name to be Daniel Jerome. I disagree based on the 1860 census which plainly states Samuel J. He married NANCY. Her maiden name is unknown. -I do not recall where this information comes from-
What became of Samuel J. 1870? I find a Samuel in Crystal Springs, Copiah Co Mississippi, his age though, is 21, wife, Laurinda, age 27, children: Grace T., age 7, William, age 3, and Benj. P, age 8 mo. The child, Grace, cannot be his child, unless he fathered a child at age 14! I am unsure that this is the same Samuel. I have been unable to locate him in 1880 either.

He married 1) MARY D. TAYLOR about 1840. I do not recall the source for Mary's maiden name. She probably died between 1870-1876.
He married 2) MINTERIA I. on 21 May 1876 in Simpson Co Mississippi., who had previously been married to James L. Waldrop. I do not know her maiden name.

WILLIAM J. HILTON, born c1844 in Mississippi, not found after the 1860 census, perhaps he was a casualty of the Civil War.
AMY ELIZABETH HILTON, born 15 December 1844 in Simpson Co Mississippi, and died 08 January 1932 in Sabine Parish Louisiana.
She married JOHN BILLY MAHAFFEY on 27 December 1866. The son of John T. Mahaffey and Mary Lowe, he was born 28 November 1841 in Simpson Co Mississippi, and died March 1933, Sabine Parish Louisiana.

JEFFERSON WILLIAM 'WILL' HILTON, born April 1864 in Mississippi. I can't help but think that the son, William J. may have the same name, reversed, and that perhaps Wm. died in the Civil War and they named another child for him.

She married 1) CHARLES HODGE[S] / HOGG, date unknown, he died in 1840, Simpson Co Mississippi.
A small paper in the handwriting of Jacob Lamb, attached to a portion of the pension application filed by Elisabeth Lamb, tells that "Jacob Lamb married November 12, 1841 to Elizabeth Charlotey Hogg." She married 2) JACOB LAMB on November 12, 1841. He was born 25 March 1791 in Georgia, and died 25 November 1868 in Texas. Jacob had previously been married and had one son, Joseph Lamb, born c1839, who was raised by he and Elizabeth.

Richard Foster received the pension application of Elizabeth Hilton Lamb, which states that she is the daughter of William Hilton, born in South Carolina, and that her birthdate is February 23, 1822. This birthdate could conflict with that of Emiline, unless Mrs. Hilton conceived immediately after Elizabeth's birth, and gave birth to Emiline in her 8th month of pregnancy.
According to birth information, Jacob & Elisabeth were in Mississippi before 1840, residing in Simpson Co by 1846, and possibly Copiah Co before that. However, a search of census index did not locate Charles Hodge[s] / Hogg or Jacob Lamb in Mississippi in 1840.
The family migrated to Texas in 1865 according to an affidavit filed by Green Touchstone, and witnessed by William D. Mahaffey, in which he gave testimony telling that he witnessed the marriage of Elizabeth Charlotte Hilton, daughter of William Hilton, in the year 1841, Simpson Co Mississippi.

|Children of Emeline and John are:||
Portions of this genealogy is from William Scarborough.
Rick Engelhardt, a descendant of the Taylor family, has in his possession, the Family Bible, which tells that John Taylor was married to Sarah Hilton. Is this the same as Emeline? Perhaps Emeline was a first or middle name? Dates he copied from John's tombstone, are shown above. A family tree, origin unknown, in Rick's possession, gives Sarah Hilton Taylors', date of birth as April 23, 1819, and dying in 1853. The would leave to question if Sarah is the same as Emeline. However, based on census, Sarah/Emaline must be deceased by 1850 or they have divorced, because John is married to Mary 'Polly' at that time.
I find John M. Taylor in the 1850 Simpson Co census, age 39, Polly, age 25, Louissa C., age 16, Margaret A., age 14, Henry B., age 12, Rebecca A., age 11, Ameline P., age 7, Anna J., age 5, James C.H., age 4, and John Alford, age 3. --Obviously, Polly is not the mother of Louisa, Margaret, Henry, and probably Rebecca, but could possibly be the mother of the others.
I find John M., age 49, and Mary A. Taylor, age 29, in Harrisville, Simpson Co, 1860, living next door to Wm. I. Hilton, with children: Amy J., age 15, James C., age 14, John A., age 12, Hezekiah, age 8, Jefferson D., age 4, Sarah E., age 2, James R., age 3 month. I did not locate John in an 1870 census.
This family will need much more research to prove if Emaline and Sarah are the same, and who the mothered each of John M. Taylor's children.

In 1910, she is living with Hardy/Horace and Pauline Hilton Ball Her age is 74. She is shown with name 'Ball' and as mother of Pauline. She says she has borned 8 children, 4 of them living. Frances and Carrie are deceased, Wiley is living, but what about Robert and Almedia? This also would prove her to be the mother of Frances, William and Rosa.

He married MARTHA VIENNA LEE. In the 1900 census of Copiah Co with son, Joshua, her name is shown as Annie, age 62, born March 1838, borned 13 children, 9 living. Perhaps they were calling her 'Ennie'. I was only able to locate 3 of those children in 1880 and 1900. The surviving girls would have married names, but the males are all disappeared.

He is in the 1850 census with Amy Hilton, widow of William Hilton, his age 10, but I believe he is more likely a grandson than a son. I am putting what I can find of his lineage in this genealogy, and if anyone can prove who his parents are, please let me know.
He married 1) SARAH A. She was born 14 February 1840, and died 26 September 1883, burial in County Line Cemetery, Copiah Co Mississippi. He married MARY E. c1903.
(I find a record of H.C. Hilton marrying Mrs. T.A.L. Sebrons on 30 Dec 1885 Simpson, could this be Humphrey?)
|In 1850, Humphrey C, age 10 is in the home of Amy Hilton in Simpson Co.
I was not able to locate him in an 1860 census.

He married MIRIAM ELIZABETH TAYLOR c1858-59 in Louisiana. She was born 15 October 1834 in Louisiana, and died 25 October 1922. After Richard's death, she married ROBERT JASPER NICHOLS.
|Children of Drury and M. are:||Monroe, Ouachita Parish Louisiana 25 October 1860 pg 651 #264/264
Note that Drury's mother was a Taylor, and several Taylor's intermarried with the Hilton families, so these are most likely kinfolk living with them, they most likely came to Louisiana together.
