Moses Hill died in Athol MA in 1820. His wife, Luce, died in 1826, also in Athol. I've not been able to find any useful data online concerning his birth date and place, wedding, parents' names, and wife's maiden name, and would appreciate anyone else's insights. The material I've been able to find online without exception lacks source citations and contains impossible dates.

Have you checked Family Search?  Looks like this might be a daughter of Moses and Lucy Adams:

I don't think it's the same family, though maybe distantly, but from time to time I pick away at a Hill family for a friend.  Her father was George Henry Hill b. Springfield 1925, from Clarence Francis Hill in Arlington 1898 (m. Christine Gunn), from George H. Hill b. MA abt 1854 (m. Henrietta Gately), from Eber Hill from England/came to US when he was 24 (m. Alice Casey).  There are a surprising number of conflicting records with different dates for Eber.  And there is an Abraham Hill living a parallel life with children who have the same names (even middle names) in England at the same time.  I haven't worked on it for a while so haven't figured it out yet.
