  • Also known as
    GUY HILL Public - David - Other relative - 12 February 2024 - Barbara Hill (born Hastings 16 January 1929) married Alexander Ross Hill on 11 February 1950. Her older sister was my mother-in-law. My late wife was Barbara`s niece. Reminiscing after celebrating her 95th birthday, she gave me the correct name of the man all of us knew as Guy - a name he chose for himself, disgusted with both his given names - when I could find no record of Guy Hill`s service in WWII
