Ok, Here goes.. My name is James Donavan Hill, son of James Newton Hill jr.. My mother's name is Katherine Michelle "Howard" Hill. Her grandfather (Philip Houston Howard) married Anne Mae Meades some time before the Great Depression and was living in Anniston Alabama. Famous neice Marie Hilly (spelling unsure) was the Black Widow serial killer who poisoned most of her family. Besides that not much is know of my ancestors but I have been told that I have much native american descent. My mother's mother also was native american ( Gladys Genevieve Poythress). Her father Horrace was adopted so we aren't sure where that leaves us. My interest is solely to know my roots and am willing to answer questions public or private in this regard.
