Our ancestors were important in the foundation of Jamestown and St. Augustine

You will find our Hill ancestors in the work below:

Jamestowne Ancestors, 1607-1699: Commemoration of the 400th by Virginia Lee Hutcheson Davis

When, not if, is the question concerning our ancestors playing a part in Jamestown history. The Hill's are apparently descended from several people listed in the above work (Marshall, Hinton, Scowen, and other families.) I'm sure all of us have Native American ancestry, as well. Women didn't flock to the colonies and the disparity in gender populations created a lot of mixed marriages.
