Prominent Connecticut Family Comes to Georgia
By Jeannette Holland Austin

At first glance, it appears that David Hillhouse of Wilkes County was a wealthy landowner in Georgia, having acquired great tracts of land in Wilkes, Elbert and Jackson Counties, along the Oconee River. But he was also in the iron business, having a furnace and forge on the Oconee River. In 1789 he furnished over 20,000 rations to the soldiers stationed at Rock Landing on the river while an Indian treaty was being negotiated by the US Government.

For more details, see the Hillhouse genealogy under
