All I have seen is this entry (which I have truncated) in Goodspeed Publishing's History of Tennessee, 1886:
HILL, James Bryan ; jeweler of Fayetteville, Tenn ., was born 6 June 1832 in Fayetteville. Lincoln County, Tenn.: son of Ebenezer and Mary Tate (Bryan) Hill. . . He was educated in the schools of Fayetteville. He began learning the jeweler's trade at the age of twenty-two, and finally wedded Maggie Collins Bearden 26 November 1868 in Fayetteville. Tenn. Mrs. Hill has borne him five children: Charles B., Mary, Eben, Maggie B. and Emily H. Hill. Maggie is but six years of age, but is a fine performer on the violin, playing by ear almost any tune she ever heard with almost perfect time and expression. Mr. Hill served in the late war in Company C, Forty-first Regiment, Tennessee Infantry, and was afterward appointed quartermaster-sargeant. Mr. Hill and wife are members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and he is the leading jeweler of Fayetteville and a much respected citizen.
He is not mentioned in Caldwell's Tennessee Silversmiths
