We are definitely related in this way:
Your Hillier descent is John -> Emmanuel -> Henry -> ??? -> Garry.
Mine is:John -> Thomas -> Emily -> Claude -> Eric.
This is what I call the Taylor's Bay Hilliers.My grandmother Emily was a Hillier before she married my grandfather Henry P. Hillier from the Lamaline Hilliers.
John's wife was Susanna Mosher.Susanna may have been the daughter of Francis (ie the brother of Henry and the aunt of Saul Mosher on your paternal side).John Hillier was the son of Ann Hillier (no father listed at the birth).John's grandfather was John who was the original John of Lamaline.This original John worked for Abraham Mosher.If this Abe was the one that you talked about, he would have been very old to have children in 1849.What are your thoughts?
