Dr. G. G. Hill
      The estate of Dr. G. G. Hill is shown on the 1875 assessment roll of Blanco County and consisted of 1200 acres of the David Davis survey which became the site of the original part of the ranch of James Clayton Stribling, Sr.   Dr. Hill must have died between 1874 or 1875.   He was buried at the edge of a field near Cypress Creek, near the northeast corner of the David Davis land grant.  He had died in the summer and had asked before his death that his remains be returned to some state in the northern part of the United States but this was never done.  His remains were later dug up by grave robbers and the bones were scattered; at the instigation of Mrs. Lurane Fidelia Stribling, widow of J. C. Stribling, the remains were gathered together again and reburied in the stone crypt at
the edge of the same field where he had been  originally buried.
       Dr. G. G. Hill had married Georgia Sawyer, as sister of Mrs. Sophia Appell, wife of Captain  P. F. Appell
