Seeking proven Male descendants of the Hillhouse Family

We are seeking proven male descendants of the Hillhouse Family of Scotland and Northern Ireland and James Hilhouse of Bristol with the last name of Hillhouse/Hilhouse interested in DNA testing to link members of this Hillhouse family to descendants of William Hillhouse of Province South Carolina (died 1778) and Samuel Hillhouse of North Carolina (died 1782).

Resent DNA testing between proven male descendants of Rev. James Hillhouse and William & Samuel Hillhouse has proven these are two distinctive Hillhouse lines and not related as direct male descendants (more probably they may be connected through female descendants).

  1. Are these any kin of the Rev. James Hillhouse who served as pastor in Londonderry, New Hampshire 1719-22.

  2. I am a direct male descendant of Samuel Hillis (Sr.) seeking any information about when he emigrated to America, on which ship, etc. I have a lot of other information about him which I could share. -- Peter Zimmerman,

    1. Unfortunately Samuel Hillis and Wiilam Hillhouse is as far back as this branch goes at this date. I have nothing before.
