John Hill, Dorchester > President Taft
Posted by: Norris Taylor Date: August 21, 1999 at 10:22:18
  of 18072

These are the three lines of William Howard Taft from John and Frances (__) Hill, of Dorchester, Suffolk Co, Mass. Most links from Ancestors of American Presidents, Roberts, 1995. Both of Taft's parents were John Hill descendants, his mother twice over from a Hill / Breck cousin marriage upstream.

For more presidential lines, see my President's gallery of my Presidential cousins (currently 35 New England and New York immigrants to 13 presidents)
