On 23 March 1964, in response to my inquiry to the town clerk of Yarmouth, Maine, regarding the ancestry of my great grandfather, Joseph G. Mansfield, I received a response from Katherine P. Tinker. She cited no sources. In the hand-drawn chart that she attached to the letter, she identified Ebenezer and Susannah as the parents of Jacob Hill.
J. Gardner Bartlett's book, "John Hill of Dorchester, Mass., 1633, and Five Generations of His Descendants" states that he was a blacksmith by trade.
