The story from my grandmother is that he was adopted at birth from a school teacher in Alabama who had a relationship with a plantation owner's son.

Is Hill his adopted surname?  If so, do you have any idea what surname he was born with?
Hill was his adopted name. No idea what the birth parents names were.

He shows to have been buried at Greenwood Cemetery, West Point, Clay, Mississippi, United States. You can contact them and ask as a family member if they have a record of his parents name.

I added two sources to the profile of Charles Franklin Hill (1872 - 1957) (Hill-20596) and removed category unsourced profile for him.
