    HILL, WILLIAM WARNER
     (1807–1862). William Warner Hill, soldier and congressman, was born in 1807 in Pulaski County, Kentucky, and moved to Texas in December 1834. He worked as a horse and mule trader until he joined Capt. George W. Barrett's company on July 20, 1835, as a first lieutenant. On March 1, 1836, he transferred to Company H, First Regiment of Volunteers, under the command of Capt. Joseph Lynch. He assumed command of the company on March 11 but was prevented from participating in the battle of San Jacinto because of illness. He returned to command after the battle and remained until the company was disbanded on May 30, 1836. Hill represented Washington County in the First and Second congresses of the republic in the House of Representatives (1836–38). He married Maria Coles, daughter of John P. Coles, on April 5, 1838. Maria was the first white child born in Washington County. Hill was a member of Independence Masonic Milam Lodge No. 11. He later moved to Burleson County, where he died in 1862.

    A special headright was issued for military service. Soldiers who arrived in Texas between March 2, 1836 and August 1, 1836 received the same amount of land given to original colonists in a first class headright (4,605 acres for the head of a family).

    "A league of land equals 4,428 acres and a labor, 177 acres, combined they add up to 4,605 acres [19 km²]. This was the
    amount of a headright (first-class) granted to "all persons except Africans and their descendants, and Indians, living in Texas
    on the day of the Declaration of Independence… if they be heads of families… and if a single man, 17 years or older, one-third
    league" (1,476 acres).
