Samuel S. Hill, the moderator, [of the General Association of Baptists in Kentucky], was born in Virginia April 1, 1890. He was converted and baptized into the Republican Grove Baptist Church, Halifax County, Virginia, October 1904, and ordained in the Calvary Baptist Church, Richmond, Virginia in 1916. After serving in country pastorates in his native state about three years, the young minister entered the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1921, where he received the Th.
