The Rev. William Hill, D.D. (March 3, 1769 - November 16, 1852) The Rev. Dr. William Hill was the son of Joseph and Joanna (Read) Hill and was born on March 3, 1769, in Cumberland County, Virginia. He was graduated at Hampden-Sydney College in 1788. Shortly afterwards he began the study of theology under the direction of President Smith and was licensed to preach the gospel by the Presbytery of Hanover, July 10, 1790. For two years immediately succeeding his licensure he acted as a missionary under the commission of Synod, in the lower counties of Virginia and through the upper counties to the Blue Ridge, from Tennessee to Maryland, and especially in the counties in the lower part of the Valley. He then settled in Berkeley (now Jefferson) County, Va. In 1800 he became pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Winchester. In 1834 he became pastor of the Briery Presbyterian Church in Prince Edward County, where he remained for two years, and then accepted the pastorate of the Second Presbyterian Church, Alexandria, VA, which, by reason of growing infirmities, he resigned in two years. He died in Winchester on November 16, 1852. http://www.phcmontreat.org/bios/Bios-Ha.htm
