  • I have the names of this Hill family from my notes of a familyconversation at some time.  The place or date was uncertain in familyknowledge.  Virginia Lee and Edward P Hill were twins.  In April 2007,I found information on the father and birth dates in the 1930 census:

    1930 Federal Census, Stephens County, Oklahoma, 21 April, HopeTownship, District 8, page 6B, Hse #114, Fam #119
    Hill, Edward P Head  M W 35 married at age 20 OK AR AR Farmer
    Hill, Ouida Wife  F W 30 married at age 19 GA GA FL
    Hill, Edward P Jr Son  M W 7 OK OK GA
    Hill, Virginia L Dau  F W 7 OK OK GA
    Turkett, Henry M W 31 TX TX TX Farm Labour
    Smart, Holly [transcribed by Ancestry as Hally] M W 20 TX TX TX FarmLabour

    I note here that Ouida's mother is reported as born in Florida.  Thisis the only indication I have seen that Thomas Duncan Terry's wife wasborn in Florida.  Other sources from family and censuses indicate TD'swife (Ouida's mother) Martha Wiley Wall was born in NC.  Note alsothat Edward and Ouida's reported ages and the age at marriage cannotmatch, unless Edward Sr was married for a short time before marryingOuida.
