St Mary’s Beacon, v.18:19 p3 c8; 8 May 1862 A Card, Notice Hill, Cornelius F.4363,5399
Benjamin Tippett. 1 May 1862
On second thought, I will now submit the certificate of Mr. C.F. Hill and let the public know the truth at once. B. Tippett ---
I hereby certify that I was present and in full view of the difficulty which occurred on the 7th of this month between Dr. Robert Neale and his son and Mr. J. W. and Benjamin Tippett; that I was employed to do some jobs for Mr. J. W. Tippett at the time the said difficulty occurred; that Dr. Neale and son came where I was at work and inquired for Mr. J. W. Tippett, and I directed them to the place where he was at work. I saw Dr Neale and son ride where Mr. Tippett was, and further, saw Dr. Neale strike at Mr. Tippett with a club several times. I then saw Mr. Benjamin Tippett go to his nephew’s assistance, and on his approach I heard the report of a pistol.
After the report of the pistol, I saw Dr. Neale and son riding away from the Messrs. Tippetts in considerable haste. I then saw Dr. Neale and son stop and I saw the Dr. ride up to him ___ and receive something from him which I supposed to be a pistol. They then wheeled their horses and rode in the direction of the Messrs Tippetts for a short distance and immediately wheeling their horses again; made briskly away from Mr. J. W. Tippett’s premise. I certify that I did not see Bobby Neale arise or attempt in take hold of or interfere with Dr. Neale at any time, and I further certify that the Messrs Tippett remained in the field and about the place where the difficulty occurred until Dr. Neale and his son Robert had left the premises.

1920 MD Census Soundex Not listed as Margaret Cullins or Hill

I looked through every page of the 1860 MD St Mary’s County, 3rd and 4th District on Heritage Quest - there were only two Cullins, her brother William T. who has his mother living with him, and her sister, Jane living near her brother. There were two black Cullins, Mary 65 and Robert 23 in the same household Pg 154 Dwg 1320 Fam 1336.
I searched for all Margaret E’s b: 1837-41 and only three I could find, all as a wife with two or three small children. Could she have been married briefly before marrying Cornelius Franklin Hill? There are 180 Margaret’s in St Mary’s County, MD in 1860
