About John Hill


John Hill

   Birth 10 January 1650 in Guilford, New Haven, Connecticut, USA 
   Death 09 May 1690 in Middletown, Middlesex, Connecticut, USA 

John Hill 1650 - 1690 was the son of John Hill 1615 – 1689 and Frances Symonds 1618 – 1673. He married Thankful Stow 1646 – 1711 about 1670. Children:

Mary Hill 1671 – 1671 died young

John Hill 1672 – 1740 m Hannah Highland 1669 – 1752

Elizabeth Hill 1673 – 1742 m James Lord 1668 – 1731

Mary Hill 1676 – 1730 m Josiah II Rossiter1680 – 1751

Col Samuel Hill 1677 – 1752 m Huldah Ruggles 1684 – 1762

Nathaniel Hill 1680 – 1764 never married

James Hill 1682 – 1715 m Mercy Fry 1686 – 1782

Caution researchers: He did *not* marry Jane Bushnell. That was John Hill son of Luke Hill. I also believe he did not marry Hannah Grannis 1665 – 1670 because she appears in church records with John Hill son of Robert Hill. Thankful Stow appears to have been his only wife.
