Hi Kathy:

May I suggest that you also post on the Ontario List, also as Deseronto is
in Tyendinaga Township, Hastings County and the name of the Mohawk
Reservation is also Tyendinaga (now the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory).

Hope this is helpful.

Lynn

Subject: [HILL-L] Hill Families of the Mohawk


Aaron Oseragighte and his wife, Margaret, and Isaac Anoghsookte and his
wife, Elizabeth, became the progenitors of the Mohawk families HILL. It is
said that they took the name from the location of their homes which were on
a hill overlooking the Mohawk River .

I would like to find out if the Hill ancestors for which I am looking were
from these families. I understand that Catherine, the wife of Dow Aronhaha
Claus may have been a Hill. Deborah, the wife of George Barnhart, was also
a Hill. Both were born sometime around the turn of the nineteenth century.
They were Mohawks, probably from around near Deseronto or Tyendinaga,
Ontario.

I understand that information of the Hill families, including baptisms of
their children, and family charts, are in the book Turtles, Wolves, & Bears
: A Mohawk Family History by Barbara J. Sivertsen. Does anyone have access
to this book?

Regards,

Kathy
