"Captain Hillhouse was in the following engagements: at Williamson's plantation, S. C., Rocky Mount, Hanging Rock, Camden ferry, Sumter's defeat, Fort Granby, Fort Motte, the Big Savannah, Fort Watson on Santee, near Kingstree on Black River and another on Fort Granby and Biggin Church, near Moncks Corner. When Lord Cornwallis campaigned thru South Carolina, he camped on William's Farm while William was off fighting. Cornwallis destroyed William's farm. William sold his nearly 500 acres and left South Carolina." (1)

     "After the war, he lived with his son James, a  Presbyterian minister who organized the Presbyterian Church in Greensobro, AL. After James' Death in 1834, Captain Hillhouse moved to Oktibbeha County, MS with his two unmarried daughters. They lived in a home located  at what is now University Drive and Muldrow Street" (2)

    He is buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery, Starksville MS. A monument was erected in his honor there by The Daughters of the American Revolution. The Starkville Chapter of the MS SAR is honored to bear his name.
