SION HILL AND SARAH BROWN DNA CONNECTIONS

The DNA for Joseph Green Hill [alias for the DNA participant] and descendant of Green Hill who married Matilda Turner has been received. The eBook is listed below and will be available in the next several days with the addition of the DNA information. The simple answer is, "Yes", the DNA for Joseph Green Hill is in Group 5 on the www.hilldna.com website - exactly where it is supposed to be. That means that this DNA is representative of the DNA for Sion Hill who married Sarah Brown and solidifies the "Sion Hill Cluster" of DNA on Group 5. Buy the eBook and read all about it when the link says it is available. Also, the DNA should show very soon on the www.hilldna.com web site. Below is a picture of the certificate for the Y-DNA of Joseph Green Hill if you wish to compare the 67 markers with those of Group 5.

One of the things that has bothered this researcher for years is the fact that many other so-called researchers or maybe just genealogists try to link the Sion Hill who died in Wake County, NC in 1780 as the Sion Hill, son of Robert and Tabitha Hill. My eBooks have tried to prove with available research that it just isn't true. The "Let's Get This One Right" subtitle was meant to say exactly what it does. Let's fix this problem for once and for all. Now, another eBook on my website www.hillebooks.com titled "Immigrant Robert Hill to Green Hill and Matilda Turner..." explains in great detail who the parents of Sion Hill/1780 in Wake County, NC are and where he came from. Also, an ancestor of Green Hill, grandson of Sion Hill/1780, submitted his DNA for analysis and it proves the research data is correct. Since this is the DNA of Green Hill, grandson of Sion, then it is the DNA of Sion Hill/1780 as well.

Various members of Group 8 on the www.hilldna.com site have tried to prove their lineage back to the immigrants Robert and Mary Hill. But, Group 8 just does not have the physical evidence in hand to prove the connection and the DNA is greatly off. To show the differences in the DNA, the following is a table of two 67 marker tests and four 37 marker test within participants in Group 8. They are compared with Kit # 503853 (submitted by alias Joseph Green Hill) who is in Group 5. Here are the results that you can verify for yourself by looking at the marker numbers.

  1. Kit # 282513 has 26 of the 67 markers not agreeing by one digit or more.
  2. Kit # 107017 has 24 of the 67 markers not agreeing by one digit or more.
  3. Kit # 4048 has 16 of the 37 markers not agreeing by one digit or more.
  4. Kit # 105437 has 16 of the 37 markers not agreeing by one digit or more.
  5. Kit # 162478 has 17 of the 37 markers not agreeing by one digit or more.
  6. Kit # 218594 has 16 of the 37 markers not agreeing by one digit or more.

These kinds of differences in the markers mean that members of Group 8 and Group 5 do not share a common ancestor. That's why they are in different groups. The markers within the six participant kits all in Group 8 are very consistent with each other. They just don't connect back to immigrants Robert and Mary Hill. The research is solid; the DNA supports the research. That makes for a closed case.

SION HILL, SON OF ROBERT AND TABITHA HILL DNA CONNECTIONS

Much to the excitement of this researcher, the DNA for William James Hill, III was posted by familytreedna.com on 2 December 2016. As expected, the markers match eight of the participants in Group 8 on the www.hilldna.com website at the 37 marker test. They match up very high at the 67 marker test. The following is the DNA certificate for William James Hill, III showing his markers.

The following two charts show the individual markers for William James Hill noted in the green color matched up to six of the participants in Group 8. By a quick check, you'll note many of the markers are identical at the 37 marker grouping and there are only two markers different with George H. Stevens and two markers different with Carrie Hill Lillard at the 67 marker results.
William James Hill obviously shares a common ancestor with these individuals in Group 8 and that ancestor is Robert Hill with his wife Tabitha. This is more definitive proof that Sion Hill, son of Robert and Tabitha Hill is NOT the Sion Hill who died in 1780 in Wake County, NC with his last will and testament. We have now "got this one right - finally." If only we can share this data with the many people on Ancestry.com and other web sites who have Sion Hill, son of Robert and Tabitha assigned to the wrong lineage.
