William was born about 1870. He passed away about 1906.

He married Florence BAIN in about 1900. According to the 1901 Irish Census they lived in Drumaness, County Down, Ireland. There was a large linen flax mill in Drumaness and most of the area's inhabitants worked in the flax/linen industry.

Florence and William HILL had three children together (John, Irwin and Florence).

William HILL appears to have died about 1906. A 1910 marriage record and the 1911 Irish Census show that his wife Florence HILL has remarried to Alexander GABBEY, a fellow widower, to form a melded family.

Of William's three children (John, Irwin, Florence), only Florence survives to accompany her mother and new husband/family to the USA in 1920. Both John HILL and Irwin HILL die in their teens.
