About Joseph Hills, Jr.

Looks like this whole family (Joseph Hill/Hills Jr. and Sr., and Rose Clark/Cleerke/Clarke) came together to America after the birth of Joseph Hills Jr., which was 1629.


("Note: This branch up from John Barrett b. 1704 is somewhat speculative in that I (as well as some others who appear responsible) have made a bit of a best guess that the wife of that John was Dorothy Lynde. Even though she was as much as 12 years older than him.")

Some suggestion that this Joseph married his step-sister Hannah, since this Joseph's father Samuel had been married to Hannah's mother (also named Hannah). See entry for the elder Hannah.
