I never thought about that.... Sam Hill, I always thought the hill part was a way to keep from saying H E double-toothpicks. LOL@Imposter.. Your prior post to Miss E Font included the slang term "What the Sam Hill". I always like to use Google to see where some of those various terms originate.
There were several possibilities, but the one I liked the most is when Ky. Governor Buckner sent his adjutant (Sam Hill) to Pike County to investigate the Hatfield-McCoy feud and newspapers nationwide reported "What will Sam Hill find"?... Interesting.
Never thought about the Sam part.
I had several classes at UK with a Hatfield girl that was from over around the WVa line. She claimed to be descended from the Hatfield clan that was involved in that famous feud. Man she was a looker, big tall girl, she had legs that went all the way up to her neck.
Red headed and just as mean as she was pretty. Man we had a time down there.
