Hill-Jordan-Klages Families 

and Related Lines




Our Family Tree, “Hill-Jordan-Klages and Related Lines,” was created to honor our parents, Oral Edgar Hill, & Hazel Myrtle Jordan, and our sister, Marilyn Joy Hill Klages, nee Hill, all deceased.

We have researched our family’s ancestry for over 36 years, and have tried to confirm our sources whenever, and wherever possible.

An interesting occurrence since the creation of this Family Genealogy, has been the dawn of DNA advances. 


We have traced our HILL family, by research, back to William Hill, I, and his wife, who is believed to be Mary Rittenhouse, of New Jersey. They were living in Franklin Township, Fayette County & in Crawford County, Pennsylvania, between about 1783 to 1807. Richard Keith Hill has had his DNA tested, and we have found 4 males, who are tightly related to Richard. We show this in our RootsWeb’s WorldConnect Family Tree (cjhill / link provided below), by creating a page for MRCA HILL, (Most Recent Common Ancestor). Here we have placed the ancestor of each of the males who have contributed DNA to Group 26 of the Hill Family DNA Project (this can be found by going to http://www.hilldna.com  ). Each of their lines can be found in this genealogy.
