George H. Hillhouse’s clan descended from Scotch-Irish pioneering, migratory stock. His ancestors settled in Camden Co., SC, and later migrated to Pendleton Dist., SC. Some relatives migrated to Crooked Creek, Crittenden Co.,KY. After visiting there, George Hillhouse returned to SC to claim his bride, Elizabeth Dobbins, and they trekked to KY.
Elizabeth Dobbins, second daughter of James and Eliz. (Stephenson) Dobbins, lived with her family, 1780s to 1800s, on James Dobbins’ Varennes plantation four miles SE of where Anderson, SC, was established, 1826.
At age 25-plus (1807) Elizabeth married George H. Hillhouse. They immediately migrated about 600 hundred miles to Crooked Creek, KY, seeking land ceded by Indians. By 1810, they had migrated farther west and southward to Giles and Lawrence Counties, Tenn. There they raised ten children.
