Document 01: Clarence F. Hill's Death Record dated April 30, 1947. Notice that the document states that the wife (Informant) was Eva Morse, and that she indicated that her deceased husband, Clarence F. Hill, was "White".
Document 02: "Chief" David Andrew Hill's Death Record Certificate dated July 09, 2005. Notice that the Death Record Certificate document states that the wife (Informant) Sheila Elizabeth (nee: Schroeder) Hill indicated that her deceased husband was "American Indian" (NOT Abenaki Indian). Yet, when Sheila Schroeder and David Andrew Hill married in Newington, Hartford County, Connecticut on October 10, 1984, David Andrew Hill indicated that his Race/Ethnicity was "White". When David Andrew Hill was born on December 25, 1945 in Plainville, Hartford County, Connecticut to Frederick R. Decoteau/Descoteaux dit Hill and Jane Capitola (nee: Hill), the parents indicated on the Birth Certificate that their son was "White".
It is interesting to note that, when my ancestor's descendant Thomas James Cass (descendant of Parker Preston Woodward's daughter Flora Ella Woodward - Cass) was born in Groveton, Coos County, New Hampshire on February 09, 1923 it is indicated on the Birth Record that the parents and their son were "White". I have not secured the Marriage Record (yet) of Thomas J. Cass dated November 06, 1944 in North Stratford, Coos County, New Hampshire, but very likely it will also indicate that these two being married are/were "White". Yet, when my ancestor's siblings descendant died on October 16, 1996 in Groveton, Coos County, New Hampshire the Death Certificate indicated that Thomas James Cass' "Ancestry" was "English/Indian" and to the right, under "Race" it is "White" that is placed there. I have placed some of these documents of my ancestors previously onto this blog LINK: http://reinventedvermontabenaki.blogspot.com/2009/11/side-step-to-reply-to-anonymous-on.html
(Just because I am "pointing one finger outwardly, doesn't mean that I am not aware that I am pointing three fingers back at my very own ancestors at the same time").
NOTE: MORE "genealogicial records" will be placed on this blog.
