Group 12a

(Haplotype R1b1)

ANALYSIS OF PARTICIPANT DATA
Group 12a, 12b, 12c, is willing to sponsor DNA analysis for one male Hill with a reasonably well documented lineage to any of the following Virginia Hill lineages: (1) Isaac Hill/Margaret Jennings or their son William Hill (2) Thomas Hill/Elizabeth of Amherst County or their son Dabney Hill (3) John D. Hill of Amherst County, Va. (4) Humphrey Hill of Caroline, Va. (5) William C. Hill of Augusta County, Va. Contact: Marine263@ma.rr.com.

There are DNA branches for Group 12a, 12b, 12c, for descendants from an unknown but mutual recent common ancestor (MRCA). There are at least 2 and possibly 3 lines to this MRCA suggested by paper documentation. Group 12a lineages are proven to William Hill (1700 VA – 1787 NC) who married Susannah Smither. Group 12b leads to to John Hill (bef 1710 – c1780) of Amelia County who was the brother of the William Hill in Group 12a. Finally, the Group 12c lineages are proven to William Hill (c1742 – c1787) of Amherst. There is documentation suggesting that the William Hill of Group 12c is a grandson of John Hill of Amelia County. However, this linkage has not yet been proven.

For more than 80 years genealogists have wondered if James Hill of Amherst Co. VA. who m/Anne Overton might be related to William Hill of Amherst. DNA does not support this  (see Group 28, Kit: #146171). An additional DNA sample from another line to James Hill is needed for verification.

Group 12a: William Hill (1700 Va. – 1787 N.C.). William Hill was born in Middlesex Co., Va., migrated first to Caroline Co., VA. and then to Surrey, NC. He married Susanna SMITHER c/1736 in Caroline Co., VA. and had 10 sons: 1 – Jesse Hill (c1756 VA – 1820 SC), 2 – Dan Hill (1756 VA – 1826 TN) , 3 – Joshua Hill (c/1763 VA – ), 4 – Rev.
