Taylor Marie Hill is an American model. She has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2015.

She is the daughter of Jennifer Rea (Tate) and David Glenn Hill.

Taylor’s sister has evidently stated that they have some Native American ancestry. It is not clear if this Native American ancestry has been verified/documented.

Taylor’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced to her fifteenth great-grandfather, William Hill.

Taylor’s paternal grandfather was Robert McKinley “Bob” Hill (the son of McKinley Tennyson Hill and Mildred Jane Pierce). Robert was born in West Virginia. Taylor’s great-grandfather McKinley was the son of Okey Johnson Hill and Zena/Zane Alice “Zanie”/”Zannie” Corbin. Mildred was the daughter of Robert Edwin Pierce and Laura May Stewart.

Taylor’s paternal grandmother is Frances Ann Robinson (the daughter of Charles Edward Robinson and Amy Marie “Tup” Flynn). Frances was born in West Virginia. Charles was the son of Francis Marion Robinson and Laura May Harbert. Amy was the daughter of David Maurice Flynn and Amy Agnes Turner.

Taylor’s maternal grandfather was Stanley Ray Tate (likely the son of Ray James Tate and Mabel Barker).

Taylor’s maternal grandmother was Gloria Ada Pickens (also known as Gloria Diane Pickens, the daughter of Ralph McKinley Pickens, Sr. and Hazel Edith Vinson). Gloria was born in North Carolina. Ralph was the son of William Andrew “Billy” Pickens and Laura Angeline/Angelia Peek. Hazel was the daughter of James Isaac “Jim” Vinson and Edith Caroline “Callie” Peek.

Taylor’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced to her fifth great-grandmother, Sarah Mull.

She really needs to stop tanning. She’s destroying her skin.

She’s not pretty to begin with.

Ethnic admin, Follers whoever I have found out several claims of her ancestry! Her younger sister claimed this:

And on ask.fm Taylor said this:

By Indian she most likely meant “Native American” as that is what her sister claims too.

Turkish, really?

Manila?

She has stated it more than once, apparently:

“I’ve turkish ethnicity, does that makes me turkish?”

follers December 13, 2016 at 6:43 pm

Is that a verified account?

madman December 14, 2016 at 2:10 am

I have no idea, I just googled “taylor marie hill turkish”, and it showed up.

alexgxo December 1, 2016 at 9:37 pm

I wonder where she got that.. I thought she was your avenge White American of English/Irish descent.. throw in some german maybe.

TheHelper August 3, 2017 at 8:08 am

She is White. She claims Native American ancestry because she has been taught to hate her own race. Most that claim they do, don’t actually have any Native American ancestry.

ashash December 21, 2017 at 12:11 pm

I think many non-Native American Americans actually think they have recent Native American ancestry. The story about the great-grandmother being Native is pretty commonplace even if it turns out not to be true most of the time.

From research, it looks like white Americans are more likely to have a distant African-American ancestor than a Native one, although the claims about the Native great-grandmother is about recent Native ancestry. That’s 1/8th instead of 1/128th or 1.5/1048. 1/8th isn’t distant to me.

alexgxo September 16, 2016 at 8:24 pm

I think tumblr or some site claimed she had distant native ancestry. Or she herself said it before she became famous.

It was all over some celeb sites.
