Hill Families of the Mohawk

Surnames: Hill, Claus, Barnhart
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.

Yes, still seeking information regarding the name Bannister originating from the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte...Specifically George Bannister born Jan 21, 1816 married to Margaret Williams of Tyendinaga. Father of Margaret was Sampson Williams.

We recently visited in Prince Edward County searching for our Catherine Hill who married a Thomas Keeler in Pincton in 1836. We were informed that Hill was a common name in the early 1800's assigned by Methodist clergy to Mohawk indians converting to the faith. We are still looking for confirmation/refutation for our Catherine R. Hill.
This may be the origin of your Hill.

Hello, I am connected to the Hill family that you speak of through Joseph Hill, Born in 1814 in Marysburg to David Hill and Annie Hicks. I am interested in possible native connections to this family.
Thank you,
Tom.

Tom, Thanks for your posting. We have no information on the parents or national origin of our Catherine Hill. The information we do have indicates that she was born 06 Feb, 1816 in Marysburg. She joined the Methodist faith in 1834. Her marriage banns to Thomas Keeler were posted in Picton in 1836. The family moved to the U.S. in 1865.
Judging by her birth date she could have been a sister to your Joseph Hill. Do you have any information to indicate that fact?
We know that Catherine Hill was a name frequently used when Native American females were baptized into the Methodist religion. If she is part of your family, than she probably was "not" Native American by birth.
