Genealogies of Connecticut Families Vol II Notes on the Family of John Hill of Guilford,Conn: pages 163-165 NOTES ON THE FAMILY OF JOHN HILL OF GUILFORD, CONN. By:Edwin A. Hill, Esq., of Washington, D. C.

"He was twice married: First to Frances ------, prior to his arrival at Guilford, and, according to Dr. Talcott, before his emigration; and second to Katharine Chalker. "John Hill of Guilford m. Katern Chalker 23 September, 1673." (Records of Saybrook, Ct., in REGISTER, IV., 138.) Savage (II., 417) says she was "probably the widow of Alexander Chalker," concerning whom Hinman, in his "Early Puritan Settlers," page 517, remarks: "Alexander Chalker was an early settler in Saybrook; on page 96, vol. 1, at Saybrook, he m. Kathrine Post, Sept. 29, 1649, and had issue," among others, "4. Catern, b. Sept. 8, 1657; m. John Hill, of Greenfield [Guilford], 1673." If we follow Hinman, she was only sixteen years old when she became John Hill's second wife, at which time his eldest son was nearly thirty-three years old; but Savage is most likely correct."
