|Origin of Illig, Meaning of Illig
Origin: A George Hillegass (circa 1746-1814), who was born in Sinsheim, Baden Germany and migrated with his parents to America. He was the son of Peter Hillegass who was descended from Hans Peter and Anna (Triegel) Hillegass of Sinsheim. George migrated to Fayette County, PA where we see the spelling 'Hillegass'. However around 1787 he moved to what is now Fleming County, KY. It was at that time that the spelling of his surname appeared as 'Hilligoss'. It is not clear why the spelling was changed. However to this day his descendants maintain that spelling.
