Rob Hill, along with Scott Davis and Richard Sirianni, have done a lot of research on Robert E. Harrill, better known as the Fort Fisher Hermit. The trio created a 2004 documentary on Harrill called “The Fort Fisher Hermit: The Life and Death of Robert E. Harrill,” which aired on PBS. Hill was the writer/director/editor of the Common Sense Films production.
Hill said the reburial in Carolina Beach in 1989 was paid for by Harrill’s son, Edward.
