Click on Descendants of John and Margaret Skelton Standiford, and then do a search for Hinds.That will take you down to your William and from there you can see who his parents are and how it goes back up the tree to John and Margaret.Otherwise it can be rather overwhelming (^_^)
I have a double connection to John and Margaret through their son James.Among his children he had sons Luke and William, their daughter and son -- Elizabeth and Isaac --married, yup first cousins. (^_^)
Your William descends from Jesse, Israel then James and "cousin" that's where we have a common ancestor.
