Descendants of Samuel Hills : A Supplement to the Hills Family in America, W. S. Hills and Thomas Hills (Published 1906) (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Descendants of Samuel Hills: A Supplement to the Hills Family in America, W. S. Hills and Thomas Hills (Published 1906) IF it were not for the patience and generosity of Francis J. Hills Esq., of Rahway, N. J this book would never have become avail able. It is important to note that his earliest known progenitor, Samuel Hills of Duxbury, Mass., and Lebanon, Conn., wrote the final 8 to his surname. While some of the descendants changed the spelling, most of them, including Mr. Hills' branch, retained the original form. Samuel Hills was not a son of John Hill of Saybrook, Conn., nor was the latter a son of William Hills of Hartford, Conn., as has been claimed without evidence or proof. Of these facts I am certain. Throughout the text, reference is made to the Hills Notes, a typed manuscript, with many photostatic copies of original documents, which I compiled and which Mr. Hills has presented to the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Mr. Hills has particularly requested that full acknowledgement be accorded to the late William Sanford Hills and Thomas Hills for their Hills Family in America, published in 1906. I wish to thank Mrs. Charles D. Townsend of West Hartford, Conn., and Donald Lines Jacobus, m.a., of New Haven, Conn., for their able assistance in some of the local research, also Miss Marion C. Reed of Brookline, Mass., for her help in reading proof with me. Lexington, Massachusetts. Winifred Lovering Holman, s.e. January 1957.
