The Hill Family

The Hill Family Tree

    This is the story of our family from about 1650 in Rhode Island to present. With great thanks to Ancestry.com as one source of information, it helped verify good information that I received from many relatives. Most important is Gary C. Hill who was the first to send me a list of relatives back in time to Jonathan in Rhode Island around 1657. From that list I began to search the internet for more information. The only accurate source of information that links to vital information is the Ancestry web site. Due to the extensive research that has already been done by the site creators they can suggest possible family member links from existing data bases. During my search I found it difficult to make a connection with Jonathan on Prudence Island and someone making the trip from England. I still do not know who in the family really was the first to travel to the new world.

This is mainly about me from the earliest ancestor to now but along the way I'll be including all the relatives I find and put their names up for all to see. I will include anyone who can identify a position on the tree and supply useful information for record keeping.

If you find an error in my listings it was not done on purpose but by mistake and I'm willing to change based on the information you supply. Please send me an email or call me with the correction.

From this point in the story we can verify most if not all of the records showing people and places. Before this point all is subject to change depending on what we find for Jonathan's parents and where he was actually born. Speculation is that he was the first to come to America and settle first in Prudence Island, Rhode Island. We have no way to prove or disprove this yet so help with any information you have to support our theory.
