Joseph HILLIS and Susan Brown MORSE family

Joseph Hillis was born 29 April 1832 in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia or England. (See previous post Brick Wall - Where did Joseph Hillis Originate?)

Joseph married Susan Brown Morse on 12 May 1856 in Ohio County, Indiana. Susan was born 15 December 1838 to Valorous Morse and Mary B Works.

Joseph and Susan moved to Boone County, Kentucky by 1880. Joseph died on 25 February 1907. Susan died on 20 March 1911. They were both supposedly buried in Rising Sun, Ohio County, Indiana, although no record of their burials has been located.

Joseph Hillis and Susan Brown Morse had 4 children, all born in Indiana, probably in Ohio County:
  1. George Elder Hillis (25 May 1857 - 31 Mar 1917) married Mary Susan Washburn (28 Sep 1866 - 19 Apr 1919).
  2. Valorous Morse Hillis (Aug 1859 - 9 Oct 1931). He never married.
  3. Mary Francis Hillis (28 Jan 1863 - 26 Feb 1948) married William Hankinson (16 Apr 1858 - 5 Apr 1938).
  4. Lizzie Hillis (Sep 1865 - before 1910) married Philip Cayton (b. Sep 1850).
