If the new information, much of it unearthed over the past six months by Culpeper historian Zann Nelson, is accepted by the Hall of Fame, Hill would officially become Culpeper Countys second native enshrined in Cooperstown (pitcher Eppa Rixey being the other) and just the fifth Virginian.
While much is known about Hills career, Nelson has partnered with other baseball researchers across the country including Gary Ashwill, Larry Lester, Patrick Rock, Fred Worth, Tim Copeland and Jeremy Krock to develop a more accurate biography.
In an extensive three-part series published Dec. 29-31 in the Culpeper Star-Exponent, Nelson documented the case for changing a major part of Hills life story.
"Sad to say, Pete Hill is the only Hall of Famer known to be incorrectly identified," said Nelson, a professional genealogical researcher and former director of the Museum of Culpeper History.
But in the summer of 2009, when Nelson received a tip about Hills possible connection to Culpeper County, she jumped at the chance to rewrite history.
"There is no greater thrill for a historian than to be on the trail of a new discovery," Nelson said.

The births of blacks in the late 1800s often weren't recorded, said Zann Nelson, a history columnist for the Culpeper Star-Exponent and former director of the local history museum.
In a three-part series that appeared in her newspaper in December, Ms. Nelson discusses how the proximity of the railroad -- with its porter jobs and access to black newspapers such as the Pittsburgh Courier -- lured black Virginians north.
Ms. Nelson is particularly fascinated with Mr. Hill's mother, who arrived in Pittsburgh in the late 1880s, according to family history.
