Group 6

(Haplotype R1b)

There is a problem with this Group in the 26-37 Marker range. The Modal DNA for the Group has not been established, therefore it is difficult to decide which participant (s) should be shown with the mismatches. Extended testing is crucial to determine if some have been incorrectly grouped here. Certainly the introduction of a participant with the surname Barlow is of interest. This Barlow participant’s family live in Liverpool, England. No mutations in the first 25 Markers may indicate some recent occurrence contributed to the match. Other members or this group should be encouraged to refine their results to 37 markers, further proving their own connection to the group.

KIT 162386: JAMES (Jimmy) HILL is my earliest known Hill ancestor. He married Zillah Poole, born about 1804 in GA, died before 1868 in GA. My grandfather said his father was one of eleven children, seven boys and four girls. I only know the names of four boys and three girls, and the initials of another presumed to be a boy. Their known children were: Washington Floyd Hill b.24 Oct 1823 GA d.08 May 1894 GA, J. R. Hill b. before 1839 – nothing further known, Caleb Pennington Hill b.07 Jun 1839 GA d.04 Mar 1898 KY, George Lafayette Hill b. 1843 GA d.27 Oct 1922 GA. Frances E. Hill b. abt 1844 GA, Nancy E. Hill b. abt 1846 GA, James H. Hill b. abt 1848 GA (*NOT* 1845 as some researchers believe), Melissa P. Hill b. 1848 GA d. 1880 probably AR.My grandfather also said two of the brothers went to Texas and were never heard from again. We know what happened to Floyd, Caleb, and George, and J. R. was around until at least 1868, when he signed the deed of sale selling his deceased father’s land, so the two unknown brothers are probably the ones who went to Texas. 1830 census indicates four boys born between 1826 and 1830. 1840 census indicates one boy born between 1826 and 1830, and two boys born between 1831 and 1835. The James and Zillah Hill family has not been found in the 1850 census. The 1860 census shows the oldest child still at home was Caleb.
There are several Hill families still living in the area where Jimmy and Zillah lived. One family (which includes James A. Hill born b.14 Jun 1845 d.13 Nov 1914, whose father was John Hill b. 1812 in GA) has descendants in the Homer, GA area. Another family is descended from Crawford (b.1821) and Elizabeth (b.1822) Hill from SC. There were two Hill families that lived near James and Zillah in 1830. The Anderson (b.1801-10) Hill family lived next door, and the Caleb (b.1801-10) Hill family lived four homes away. I have not tracked the Anderson Hill family down yet. The Caleb Hill family appears to have moved to Mississippi by 1850, after spending several years in Alabama. There is another Hill family I recently discovered who currently own property near where Jimmy and Zillah’s last farm was. I have spoken with them, but have not yet determined their ancestry. They do not know of any relation to Jimmy and Zillah.
