v.
Cap Kendrick Hill, born October 07, 1884 in Roane County, TN; died September 03, 1934. Cap Hill was an amateur genealogist who made a significant contribution to the field in the 1920s. In 2005, I corresponded with Sherrell Buchanan, a noted researcher of the Randolph line. She had this to say about the work of Cap Hill:

I know who your grand-uncle C.K.Hill was. I have copies of several of his letters and correspondence that he wrote. He did a tremendous job researching this family, and I think he would have concluded that we are not from Henry I if he had had all of the material available to him that is available today. He was on the right track......and if it had not been for him we would not have some of the "proofs" of material researched that we actually do have. An example is: In his correspondence with one of my great-aunts, he asked her to name her uncles and aunts...and in her return correspondence to him, she did just that. I had pretty much determined who each of them were in my own research of census records etc., but just that one piece of paper where she wrote back to Cap Hill and told him those names cinched the proof that I needed to confirm my findings.

He would have been amazed by the DNA findings. I just wish he could have seen all of this.

........That's why I wish people like your Uncle C.K. Hill could see where the research is today...........he would be so amazed.........and it would be wonderful for him. He was an excellent researcher with what he had to work with in those times.
