The Cover Page - The over-simplified migration map shows only a few of the ancestors and the paths
   which their descendants followed. The main point to be illustrated is - that in this country of
   pioneers and their footloose offspring - one can find descendants of the Simsbury Hill-s just about
   anywhere in the U.S. After just four generations since W.H. Hill settled in Montana, his great
   grandchildren are spread far and wide and can be found on both coasts of this great nation, and
   many of the states in between.

                                          PREFACE - Edition 5.0

       This edition continues the emphasis on including biographical data and photos of individuals,
where available.

        The most significant changes in Edition 5 are:
           - Additional information on decendants of Jedediah‟s other children;
           - Additional biographical information on Jedediah in the years 1807-1825;
           - Pictures of Jed‟s “Hill House”; John Henry Hill‟s portrait; Sarah Hill, & others;
           - Extension of the Haight & Hoyt ancestors to very early Old World lines.

         If anyone is interested in extending this work, I have the machine readable files used to produce the
printed pages (in Lotus WordPro or Microsoft Word format) and will supply them if requested - under the
release below the synopsis at the front. Many of the charts are available on the Family Tree Maker website
at: and I have submitted an FTM
database that incorporates virtually all the family group data from the following pages.

         I remain interested in corrections or additions, so if any reader discovers errors of any type, or has
additional information, such as letters, newspaper clippings, obituary notices, etc., please send them to me
at the address following the synopsis.

        I again thank all who have taken the time to respond to my queries, and I want to express special
thanks to Alma Wilson and Lynn Hill Hayes for contributing newspaper clippings and letters; to Bruce
Bannister for supplying charts on the Wilder family; to all the correspondents and contributors listed the
References section; and to all who have lent the photos included herein.

I view the Hill family history as being divided into three parts:
        - the colonial (pre-Revolutionary) period from Luke Hill to John, Jedediah‟s father;
        - the pioneer and westward expansion period from Jedediah to William Henry Hill;
        - and the descendants of W.H. Hill to present day (Twentieth Century Hill-s).

        Each period is characterized by the different types of source material available and the research
strategies that must be used.

The Early Colonists - 1651 to 1783

       Luke Hill, my earliest ancestor of the Hill name that is confirmed so far, arrived some time before
1651, when his marriage was recorded in Windsor, CT. His successors lived in the Windsor / Simsbury /
Canton area of Connecticut (NE of Hartford) for the next four generations. He may have been the son of
William Hill, an early settler of Simsbury, but this has not yet been proven.

Much of the information in the this period (Luke to Jedediah) comes from the Mormon Ancestral File,
verified and supplemented by published works such as the town records from Windsor and Simsbury,
probate files, early marriage lists, genealogies, etc. The generation of John Hill 3rd , Jedediah's father, was
the most difficult to verify since it falls after most of the early genealogies end, but before census
information was available. Some additional information on early Simsbury and Windsor has been
obtained from the historical societies in that area, and more may be located eventually.

        More information on the early colonists, especially on the maternal ancestors of the Haight/Hoyt
line (Budd, Shute, Deval/Deuel, Waters) has been discovered which extends to ancient England.

The Pioneers - 1783 to 1902

        This period includes the establishment of Jedediah's family in Simsbury, Connecticut, his move to
the Sixtowns area in western New York, and the subsequent settlements in Iowa, Texas, and Montana.
Jedediah's pension file for his service in the War Of The Revolution was very helpful in confirming the
linkage between the Hill families of Simsbury, Connecticut and those of Jefferson County, New York.
The Historical Association of South Jefferson in Adams, NY also provided much needed biographical
information on Jedediah and his descendants. This is the first period for which census data is available
and much useful information was extracted from it.

        The data for the period from John Henry Hill to W.H. Hill was initially compiled from Mrs.
Robertson's original history (ref <1>), newspaper clippings, obituaries, and notes from Earl and Betty Hill.
It was then supplemented and cross-referenced to census data; records of marriages, births, and deaths;
information retrieved through genealogical societies; and military pension files. I was fortunate to make
contact with descendants of the Haights, Morgans, and siblings of Jedediah to expand those lines, some of
them to the current day. The internet has been a marvelous tool and resource in this endeavor. At this
point all of the names and relationships of this period are established to my satisfaction except the Bevans,
Fox, and Smith ancestors, and this ongoing work will attempt to better define these families in the future.

Twentieth Century Hill Descendants

        The data on descendants of William Henry Hill to the present was compiled from many sources,
but references 1, 2, and 5 were the most comprehensive. The best source remaining is correspondence
from the readers of this history. Census data is of limited usefulness since the detail on individuals is
sealed for 72 years for privacy reasons. Departments of vital records for the various states can generally
provide birth, death, and marriage registrations since 1910, depending on the state. Some states restrict
access to immediate family members, especially for birth certificates, unless proof is provided that the
individual is deceased.

Date Formats and Conventions

        The Gregorian calendar was not adopted by England until 1752, and the colonialists continued
using the old system until the late 1700‟s. Early dates were recorded using the old system where the year
ran from March 25 to March 24, with dates between January 1 and March 24 being reckoned as the
previous year. Thus the use of "1755/1756" and "1725 or 1726". Most of these dates have been changed in
this version to assume the later year if the date was between Jan 1 and Mar 24. Also, in the Mormon
Ancestral File, some dates were inferred from others. These are usually prefixed with "abt.", "after", or
"before", or are enclosed in square braces (e.g. [1784]). The standard date format used in this document is
DD MMM YYYY (e.g. 15 MAR 1995).

Hereditary Societies

       Descendants of Jedediah Hill or Aaron Haight Jr. are eligible for membership in The National
Society, Daughters (or Sons) of the American Revolution, Founders and Patriots, Sons of the Revolution,

   The general idea behind the format used for the charts was to:

   1. Collect all the information for a generation of onto a single page, and include sufficient
information so it is easy to see at a glance where this family fits into the overall structure. In general this
meant that three to four generations are presented on one chart. I felt that the duplication of some
information was justified in order to get a complete picture of a family without a lot of page flipping. The
most complete information on an individual appears on the page where they are listed as head of a family
or as the nearest generation to a family head.

   2. Provide a framework of off-page connectors to facilitate references between charts. The first digit
of Hill charts reflects the generation relative to the first generation in America (Luke Hill) as 1. For
maternal ancestor charts the first digits are the generation of Hills they relate to. The middle character(s)
are 'H' for Hill, 'A' for Anderson, or “Ha” for Haight (if required for uniqueness) etc.,. The last digits are
the page sequence within a series of related charts.

        In most cases, except for the most prolific of our forebearers, there is sufficient space for
biographic notes on the chart pages. Where additional space was required, additional pages are inserted
using the same prefix as the chart on which they appear as the head of a family.

   3. Use of standard format for the various data elements. This highlights the facts which are missing,
and also allows others to more easily add information into an established framework as more facts are
discovered. This also improves the readability and usefulness of the document.

         The format of the data elements and abbreviations are:
          B. or b:     Born (birthdate, place )
          D. or d:     Died (date, place, and bur. burial place (if different)).
          M: or Mar: Married (on date at place) followed by spouse‟s entry (+)
          R:           Current residence (Street, city, state, zip) (city, state only - if living)
         <nn>          References as numbered in "References & Acknowledgements"
          *            Comments generally follow the person they relate most directly to
        [1635]          Dates in square brackets are approximate (abt. or ca. assumed)

        Within a generation the sequence of information is generally:
               Male heir chart,
               Biography or chronology, memorabilia, letters, and clippings
               Census data
               Maternal ancestors of the next generation

                                                  Luke Hill

       Some researchers believe that Luke Hill may have been the son of William Hill, who appears in the
town records of Simsbury, CT. The following entry was abstracted from the FTM home page of
Stephen McLain Olds - “Olds & Converse Family Home Page”    e-mail:

0. William Hill B: 1598 in England; D: 1649 in CT (?).
    Mar: Sarah ___ Bef. 1613 in England.
    Child of William Hill and Sarah is:
     1. Luke Hill                 B:1613, Windsor, CT;   D: 1696, Simsbury, CT;
          Mar: Mary Hoyt on May 06, 1651 in Windsor, CT.

         Information from <58> indicates that Luke moved from ancient Windsor to Massaco in 1669, and
operated “Hill‟s Ferry” there at the Pent Road site across a tributary of the Connecticut River. With the
first settlers on the east side of the river and the main development of Simsbury on the west side, a ferry
was essential. The site was called “Hill‟s Ferry” in the land records for nearly 100 years.
         The first toll bridge was built at Simsbury in 1734 and the Hills sold their property in 1742 to
Timothy Woodbridge, who died shortly afterwards and his heirs sold the property to Thomas Marvin, who
re-established the ferry at Pent road in 1756. John Marvin was the ferryman for ten years. The rates were:
“For man, horse, and load - one penny; Single man or single horse - one-half penny; Neat cattle - (per
head) one-half penney; Sheep and swine: (per head) one farthing”
         In 1757, only a year later, Thomas Marvin sold his “house and home lot and meadow land” and his
„right‟ in Said Simsbury and privilege of a ferry across the River between Hopmeadow and Terry‟s Plain”
to Rev. Benejah Roots. Mr. Roots tore down the old Hill house and built the present one in 1762 and Pent
Road is presently a dead end street.
         The same map that shows the site of Hill‟s Ferry in 1723 shows the location of one of the historic
“long lots”, 660 feet wide and over two miles deep, which was owned by Luke‟s son, John Hill, in 1723.
We are told that every Simsbury farm was practically a self contained economic unit at that time. From it
came food, timber for shelter and furniture, and livestock for meat and transportation and trading.
Eventually though, after the property had been divided between the heirs, the farms became too small to
permit families to keep expanding. It was customary for the oldest son of a farmer to raise his family on
the farm of his parents. In time the parent would become too old to operate the farm and the son would
then take over. After several generations had bought up all the land, there was no more farmland left.
         The Hill family resided in the Connecticut River Valley for over 150 years before moving to the
Sixtown area of Jefferson County, New York. The shortage of land, as described above, and the fact that
the land was probably getting depleted, with the farming practices of the day, may explain why Jedediah,
four generations later, moved on to the West.

                                                Wife of Luke Hill

          Mary Hoyt, wife of Luke Hill, is believed to be the daughter of Simon Hoyt, although several references list her
husband as Thomas Lyon, with children's birthdates that overlap those of Luke Hill. The spelling Hoyt is used in the Stiles'
History of Windsor and Savage's A Genealogical Dictionary of The First Settlers of New England, but she and her father are
referred to in various other sources as Hout, Huit, Haight, Hait, and Hart. The variety of spellings could have been the result of
either orthographic errors or confusion in the pronunciation.

          Recent research on the Hoyt/Haight line has been done by Robin Bush, an English researcher, in the districts of
Somerset Co. and Upway, Dorsetshire in England. A series of charts beginning with [6Ha], following the section on John Henry
Hill, reflects this new information - which replaces the previous data from the Mormon Ancestral File.

        The Haights of SE Iowa, ancestors of John William Hill, are also descendants of Simon Hoyt, through his granson,
Moses Jr. This line can be traced back through some of the maternal ancestors to very ancient beginnings in England and
Scotland. Some lines pass through the nobility of England and Scotland back to the second century AD.

                                     see [ 6Ha0 ] for the ancestors of Mary Hoyt                             ==> [ 6Ha0 ]

          Banks (Ref. 28) lists Simon Hoyt (or Haight, or Hait, or Holt) as arriving on either the ship Lions Whelp from the
English parish Upway bound for Charleston and Salem Mass, or the Abigail (1629) bound for Dorchester and Windsor, Conn.
(ref. Historical Record of Putnam Co. NY).

Savage (Ref. 27) indicates that Simon, or Simeon, moved a number of times.
        - He is initially thought to have been from Dorchester
        - before 1629, moved to Charleston where he was admitted as freeman
                  on 18 May 1631. (this was confirmed by Ref. 29)
        - From 1633 to 1636 he lived in Scituate, where Benjamin was born
        - about 1650, moved to Fairfield
        - and later - to Stamford, where he died in 1659.

The "New England Marriages Prior To 1700" <31> lists two marriages for Simon Hoyt [1590-1657].
   1st - to Deborah Stowers [1593- ] on 2 Dec 1612 in Salem, Dorchester, or Scituate, Mass.
   2nd - to Susanna Smith [....-1694] before Apr 1635 in Dorchester or Windsor

         Dorset is a county in southern England.

          This section was revised to summarize or delete the family groups which weren't directly related to the Hill line, and to
include more biographies. I was fortunate to discover reference <37>, Our Family Tree by Deborah Rothery that included
some interesting, and apparently carefully researched, information on the Phelps families of Windsor and Simsbury,
Connecticut. This, and some of the data from Simsbury and Windsor town records, have eliminated the uncertainty in previous

          To keep the entries brief, the county and state have been dropped from most Simsbury and Windsor locations. They are
both in Hartford County Connecticut about 8 miles (NW and NE respect.) of Hartford city. Tewkesbury, Gloucester, England
is similarly shortened to Tewkesbury.

         Sarah Phelps, wife of John Hill, the son of Luke, was of the Phelps family of Windsor, which was founded by two
brothers who emmigrated from England in 1630 on the ship Mary and John. (Refer to the notes on 4E4 following John Hill 3rd
for a description of the Mary and John and the settlement of Windsor.)

         Sarah's father, Joseph Phelps Sr., was the son of William Phelps II and was born in England as were the previous two
generations of Phelps. The following biographies are entirely abstracted from ref<37>. The family groups are also from <37>
but have been supplemented from other sources where the additional information seemed reliable.

JOSEPH PHELPS SR. [1629] was accepted as a freeman in 1664. He was one of the first settlers of Simsbury, CT. Simsbury
was settled in 1670 and was burned by the indians in 1676. The inhabitants, including Joseph, fled to Windsor but returned the
following year. Joseph had five children and twenty grandchildren.

WILLIAM PHELPS Jr., father of Joseph Sr.
         was probably from Somerset of Dorsetshire, England where he m:(1) Elizabeth and had been an original
member of the church of Rev. Warham in Plymouth, England. Rev. Warham was one of the two Puritan ministers
who led the migration in the Mary and John. In 1630 William arrived on that ship to Dorchester, Mass. with his
first? wife, five children, younger brother George, and probably another brother Richard. He settled first in
Dorchester where he applied for freemanship 19 Oct 1630 and where he was, from the beginning, a leading citizen.

        On 9 Nov 1630 he was one of a jury empaneled for the trial of Walter Palmer for the murder of Austin
Brotchus - the first jury trial in New England. 27 Sept 1631 he was appointed constable of Dorchester. 4 Mar
1634 he was one of three appointed by the General Court to arrange the bonds between Dorchester and Boston and
explain what each town wants. 1635 he was one of eight men chosen by the Court of Massachusets to govern the
new colony of Connecticut for the first year. In spring 1636, his wife having died in Dorchester, he moved with his
children to Windsor, where his brother George is understood to have preceeded him, in the first migration of Rev.
Warham's church in the fall of 1635.

        In Windsor he ranked as an honored and active citizen and was a member of the first court held in
Connecticut in 1636 and 1637, which declared war against the Pequots. From 1638 to 1642 he was a magistrate; in
1643 foreman to the first Grand Jury; Deputy to the General Court 1645-51/57, and in 1658 was again made
magistrate which office he held another four years. He was frequently named on the Petit Jury. In 1641 he was
appointed, together with Mr. Welles of Hartford, to a committee on lying. According to Spear, Volume II, after this
"lyers" were fined or punished with "body correction".

         His reputation was as a pious, upright man in his public and private affairs and truly "a pillar of church and
state". A man of property, he subscribed to a fund for the poor. Not being able to prove title and payment for land
he bought from the indian, Sehat, he paid for it a second time. The paper describing the transaction is dated March
31, 1665 and payment of two trucking coats, 40 s. in wampum, six bushels of indian corn, and an additional thirty
shillings in wampum, "at six a penny", is to be made to Sehat's kinsman Nassahegan, Sachem of Paquanick. The
document is signed by Coggernosset, and three sisters of Nassahegan: Asuthnew, Patackhouse, and Amawer.
William's residence in Windsor was 3/4 mi. northwest of Broad Street on the Poquonock.

 Other Notes:
    William 2nd may have been married three times - the first in about 1618, the second is said to have been either Elizabeth ___
or Anne. If Anne, it may have been Anne Dover, who married a William Phelps in Crewkerne, Somerset. If so, she may have
been the sister of Mary Dover, his last wife.
   Richard Phelps, eldest son of William II, is often confused with his uncle, who was on the Mary and John. It is said that he
embarked for Barbados May 1635 and nothing more was heard of him.

            John Hill 2nd (1702-1771) and uses the spelling Ladieu. It may be equally likely that Jeanne (1707), as
            listed in the MAF, is the Jane Ladu that John Hill 2nd married 17 Feb 1723/24 in Simsbury.
                    Regardless of birthdates, it would seem that Jeanne as, pronounced by a frenchwoman, is easily
            converted to Jane by the colonial record keepers. There are no other males listed under Ladieu, Ladue,
            Ladu, or La Due who were born between 1630 and 1690 who would be candidates as Jane‟s father, so
            this would appear to be the correct family. Note that Jedediah‟s son‟s name was spelled Ladue.

                                The Egglestons of Windsor, CT

         Isabel Eggleston, mother of Jedediah Hill, was of the Eggleston family from Windsor, Connecticut. This family was
established by Bygatt Eggleston, one of the earliest settlers of Windsor in 1635-1636, and his sons: Samuel, James, Joseph, and
Benjamin. Samuel moved to Middletown and raised a family of 3 sons and five daughters. Joseph moved to Stonington around
1670 and another son, Thomas, apparently died without children of his own. The Egglestons of Windsor were the descendants
of James and Benjamin.

           My investigation of the Egglestons of Windsor started as a search for Thomas, born around 1707, who the Mormon
files indicated was Isabel's father. After searching the town records of Simsbury and Windsor and other sources, my emphasis
shifted to finding Isabel because: (1) There are no Egglestons listed in Simsbury and (2) none of the Thomas Egglestons found
had a daughter Isabel born ca. 1733.

        The Isabel accepted by most reliable sources as the wife of John Hill,3 rd and mother of Jedediah, is the daughter of
Jedediah Sr.(1696), who was the son of Thomas (1661) and the grandson of James Eggleston Sr. (1617) ).

         So, Thomas was her grandfather rather than her father, as the Mormon files indicate. Jedediah, which was an unusual
name at the time, would have been the name of Jed Hill's grandfather and a cousin, Hannah Loomis's son. Isabel was not a
common name either so it is likely that Jedediah Hill's mother was named for her aunt, Isabel Eggleston. Continuing the reuse of
names, Jed Hill's son, Eben, may have been named after Ebenezer Phelps, the husband of Isabel's aunt Mindwell, or after
Ebenezer Egglestone, the son of Samuel. Abigail Hill was probably named after her mother, Abigail Kilby, but there were also
several Abigails in the Eggleston family. Abigail, though, was fairly common at that time.

         The last name is variously spelled: Eggleston (most common in <40>), Egglestone, Eglestone (common in probate
records <15>), Eaglestone (Thomas), and Egleston (John and James Sr.). All of the Eggleston name variations appeared in the
Windsor town records and probate court records.

          The connection to the Egglestons of Windsor is an interesting one because some researchers believed Bygatt‟s
ancestors were from a very well recorded and researched population, the nobility of England and northern Europe. This
possibility was explored in the appendices of a prior edition, and may provide an incentive for some readers to study some
English history from the period 1000 A.D. to 1600. Contact the author for copies of this information (not included herein).

        An abbreviated set of family charts are on the following pages. The data is mostly from the
Windsor town records <40> and the DonEggles list <44>. No attempt was made to list all the descendants
of Bygatt here, as this information is available from several other sources in much more comprehensive
form than this history could attempt. The county or parish names are not repeated after the first listing of
a town on a page. The numbers on the left represent the generation number relative to Bygatt (which is
different from the convention used elsewhere in this history).

             The Ship Mary And John - and the Settlement of Windsor, CT                                       [ 4E4 ]
        The Mary and John left Plymouth, England on 20 March 1630 with a group of approximately 140 men,
women, and children on board. There were several middle aged gentlemen with their adult families and a number
of young bachelors. They had been brought together through the efforts of Rev. John White of Dorchester,
England. The passengers came mainly from England's western counties, i.e. Devonshire, Dorsetshire, and
Somerset. Two ministers had been chosen to lead them, Rev. John Maverick of Devon and Rev. John Warham of
Exetor. Both were ordained members of the Church of England and had joined the Puritan movement.

       Our ancestors aboard the ship included Bygatt Eggleston, widowed at that time, and his two sons, James
and Samuel, and possibly a daughter, Mary. Bygatt married two more times after arrival in New England and had
many more children. **

        Also aboard were William and George Phelps, and probably their brother, Richard. William brought with
him his wife, Elizabeth - who died before 1636, and children William, Sarah, Samuel, Nathaniel, and Joseph.
William later married another passenger, Mary Dover. Stephen Terry was aboard also, a young bachelor who
returned to England to marry Jane Hardey, bringing her back to New England on the Recovery, sailing from
Weymouth, England on 31 March 1633. Stephen's mother was Mary (White) Terry, sister of Rev. John White who
had organized the voyage.

        "So we came" writes Roger Clapp in his Memoirs, "by the good Hand of the Lord, through the deep
comfortably; having preaching or expounding of the Word of God every day for ten weeks, together by our
ministers. When we came to Nantasket, Capt. Squeb, who was captain of our great ship of four hundred tons, put us
on shore and our goods on Nantasket Point, and left us to shift for our selves in this wilderness."

         Actually, the original intent had been to land the immigrants at the Charles River, but a dispute with
Captain Squeb caused the whole company to be put ashore at Nantasket. The Mary and John was the first ship of
the fleet of 1630 (the Winthrop Fleet) to arrive at the Bay and at that time there was no chart of the channel, nor
were there pilots to guide them up the river. Capt. Squeb probably did not want to endanger his ship in the
uncharted waters.

        The company landed on the south side of Dorchester Neck, or South Boston, in Old Harbor. Ten men
found a small boat and went up-river to Charleston Neck. They continued on up the Charles River as far as what is
now Watertown and returned several days later. Their co-passengers had found pasture at Mattapsa for their cattle.
The settlement there was later called Dorchester, after Rev. John White of Dorchester, England.

         Roger Clapp wrote. "The place was a wilderness. Fish was a good help to me and to others. Bread was so
scarce that I thought the very crusts from my father's table would have been sweet, and when we could have meal
and salt and water boiled together I asked 'who could ask for better?' The settlers lived largely on clams and fish,
and Indians brought baskets of corn to them."

         After five or six years many of our ancestors found themselves unhappy at Dorchester. The group of
settlements around Massachusets Bay was dominated by clergymen and officials. The Governor, John Winthrop,
had little sympathy for common folk. "The best part (of the people) is always the least, and of that best part, the
wiser is always the lesser" he wrote. Rev. John Cotton stated,
         "Never did God ordain democracy for the government of the church or the people".

**       Reference <45> states that Bigod is not listed on the passenger manifest of the Mary and John which was printed in
The Boston Transcript, Genealogical Column about 1930. Col. C.E. Banks, in his “The Winthrop Fleet of 1630”, indicates
that Bigod came to New England in some unidentified vessel of the Winthrop fleet in June or July of 1630.

         Wishing a more liberal life, many of the passengers of the Mary and John wanted to resettle elsewhere.
They wanted more land and were also influenced by a great smallpox epidemic which had raged among the Indians,
killing many and reducing the menace from that quarter. The settlers looked toward the Connecticut Valley for
their new home.

        Early in the summer of 1635 a group under Roger Ludlow set out and reached the Plymouth Trading House
which had been erected near the junction of the Connecticut and Farmington rivers. A little later sixty men, women
and children with their farm animals came overland from Dorchester. Winter that year was fierce and many
returned to Dorchester. The following spring many of these returned with more emigrants who were leaving for
Connecticut. By April 1636 most of the members of the Dorchester Church had settled near the Farmingham River
along a hill overlooking the Great Meadow. They built rude shelters dug out of the ground along the edge of the
river bank. The town was later named Windsor.

                                              (notes from ref <37>)

          Bygatt Eggleston's name was variously spelled Bygod, Bigod, Begat, Beget, or Bagot. He was married
first in England about 1611. In 1612 his father willed him only six pounds, even though he was the eldest son, and
a house and land were left to younger brothers. Nothing is known of him in England and he may have left home
before his father‟s death. When he arrived on the Mary and John in 1630 he was one of the few passengers that was
not from the West Country of England and he may have moved there a few years before departure. His first wife,
and mother of the twins, Samuel and James, died in England between 1620 and 1630.

        He was 44 when he and his two sons settled in Dorchester, Mass. where he applied for freemanship on 19
Oct 1630 and took the oath on 18 May 1631. He was granted land in Dorchester. He moved to Windsor, Conn.
with the first settlers of that place about 1636 and married a woman probably years younger than he, who bore him
seven more children. His second wife may have been Mary Talcot (or Talcutt, or Aylett) but these have been

         On 6 June 1645 Bygatt was fined 20 shillings, at age 59, for "bequeathing his wife to a young man, George
Tuckye," who was also fined 40 shillings for "his misdemeanor in words to Eggleston's wife”. Tuckye probably
complimented Bygatt's wife and Eggleston, in jest, bequeathed her to him, but it reached the ears of the
straight-laced authorities. At age 70 he was a widower with many young children at home and married again,
possibly to Mary Wall.

         A descendant who died in 1865 had collected the names of 16,000 descendants (Burton W. Spear: Search
for the Passengers of the Mary and John ). The wife of James Eggleston, Esther Williams, is thought to be the first
white child born in Connecticut .

                            Henry and Martha Hill (of Independence, OR)
Henry Hill's family probably typified the westward expansion of the population of the United States from coast to
coast, which continues to this day.

Some of Henry's ancestors.came to the New World as Freeman with the Winthrop Fleet in 1630 seeking not only
religious freedom, but increased opportunity. They soon found the religious constraints in Massachusetts
becoming as bad as those they had left in England, so they crossed the almost unknown wilderness of western
Massachusetts to the Connecticut River valley near Hartford,where they found more freedom.

After the American Revolution in which Henry's grandfather Jedediah Hill served, his father moved from
Connecticut to western New York near Ellisburg on Lake Ontario where Henry was born January 20, 1827. The
family moved to Ohio, then to Illinois. The love of the land - the beauty, challenge, and care of it-was strong, and
most of Henry's ancestors remained farmers. His father owned a farm and grist mill in Illinois.

With a good education for that time (his mother had been a school teacher), twenty year old Henry left for the
Oregon Territory in a wagon train in which his married sister, Emily and her husband, Asa Wakefield Burbank and
children traveled. They left April 4, 1847, arrived at Willamette Falls (Oregon City) November 10, 1847, and at
Independence November 14, 1847.

Henry staked his claim number forty-five on the west bank of the Willamette, south of the junction of the river with
Ash Creek, marking it in the custom of the day with stakes at the corners,and blazes on the trees. He also built a
small log cabin.

In 1848, he went to the California gold fields, but when he returned, he found others had arrived in the interim and
"annexed" some of his claim, however he liked the location, so continued to develop it, although it contained only
463.63 acres instead of the 640 acres in the usual donation land claim. At the time of his death in 1904, he owned
approximately one-thousand acres improved land in the area plus land in Harney and Crook counties on which he
ran stock.

Henry Hill was married July 14, 1851 to Martha Ann Virgin who had also traveled west in 1847. Henry came by
way of the Columbia River; Martha by way of the Applegate trail and southern Oregon.

Martha was born in Kentucky December 18, 1834 and lived in Missouri until her parents both parished in an
epidemic in 1846. The three younger children accompanied their married sister Nancy Goff and husband Samuel
Ford Goff to Oregon to join his father David Goff.

                                                                  Henry and Martha Hill - page 2
Nine children were born to Mr. & Mrs. Hill: Roseltha, who died at age nine while attending boarding school in
Dallas, Ladue, Reason, Elizabeth, and Lucy, both of whom died as toddlers, Nelly Hill Denlinger, Homer, Verd,
and Garlin Hill Cohrs. There were eleven grandchildren.

Henry and Martha Hill were actively interested in the community. He served on the early school board; was
appointed a commissioner to locate a Polk County Territoial Road; served in the Oregon Militia during the Civil
War. After the disasterous 1861 flood which wiped out much of Independence, then located north of Ash Creek,
the citizens asked Mr. Hill to plat a town on his higher ground. He gave land for stores, churches, school,park. The
"New Town" grew rapidly and was incorporated in 1878. In 1882, "Old Town" as it was then known, was annexed.

Mr. and Mrs. Hill wanted a good education for their children. They gradually collected a large library, and reading
was a big part in the life of family. Their nine children were spread out over almost thirty years, and the education
available in Oregon changed dramatically over those years.

Roseltha, their eldest child,was sent to an Academy at Dallas. An epidemic swept through the children, and she
passed on when she was nine - a great sadness to the family. The remaining children were sent to local schools.
The younger children had the advantage of tutoring and college prep courses which became available locally as the
younger half of the family reached their.teens.

The daughters were given equal.- educational opportunities in a time when that was rare. Of the three daughters to
reach adulthood, two went to college: Nelly, reportedly the first woman law student at Stanford and Garlin who
graduated from Oregon State University - then Oregon Agricultural College, and taught high school in Washington

The children recalled that "Papa" said he didn't want his daughters marrying just to get married for he had seen too
many men of that era abuse their wives and children. They should marry for love, and to fine - upstanding men, or
not at all.

They also worked and hoped for an equal sufferage amendment. To quote Martha Hill in a letter to her daughter
Garlin in Washington dated 1911 "I see by the papers women can vote in Washington. The Holy men of Oregon did
not let us vote. Never mind. This is not all of the voting years." Mrs. Hill was then 77 years old and she expected
to have some "voting years".

In a time when women wore corsets and laced themselves tightly to obtain a small stylish waist, the Hills deplored
that fashion - they felt it was unhealthy, as indeed it was. Their daughters rode horses and ran and played freely
with their brothers, and did not wear corsets.

Mr. and Mrs. Hill were warm and caring people who sheltered many relatives and friends in their large homes.
They were called "Uncle" Henry and "Aunt" Martha by many who were not relatives, but who felt their solicitude.

                            Students uncover 'mystery' image
                          Four OCE (Oregon College of Education) students
                      working at Heritage Museum have discovered something in a
                      slide picture that was not apparent when the picture was
                      taken. Exactly what that something is remains a mystery.
                          The four, Dot Smith, Chris Trauss, Jerry Strauss, and
                      Connie Jones are photographing every item in the museum
                      as part of a class they are taking in education media. Each
                      item is numbered, labeled, described on a card, and filed.
                          Although three of the students hold teaching degrees,
                      they are not quite sure how to describe one photo they took.
                      The 'mystery slide' was taken of the late John Hill, who
                      was an uncle to Henry Hill, founder of Independence.
                      When the slide was developed, two white ghostly figures
                      appeared inside the frame, on either side.
                          How the figures got into the picture and what they are
                      has yet to be determined.
                          "I think we have photographed an energy field" chris
                      Strauss said.
                          "It may be the first time anyone has taken a picture of a
                      ghost", another added.
                          In addition to photographing, labeling, and filing, the
                      group is setting up records for loaned and donated items to
                      keep track of where items come from and how long they are
                      on loan to the museum. Chris Strauss is also putting
                      together a handbook for volunteers.
                          The program is directed by Richard Forcier, who is head
                      of the Ed Media Program at OCE. On site supervisor is
                      Dennis Eberly of Monmouth. Funds for the project came
                      through the museum's tour of homes. Chris and Jerry
                      Strauss are from Denver, Colo. He is a junior high teacher
                      and she taught fifth grade. Dot Smith, also a fifth grade
                      teacher, is from Davenport, Iowa. Connie Jones is an
                      undergraduate student from Portland.
                          Each member of the group works between 35-40 hours a
                      week at the museum and without pay. They are receiving
                      college credit.
                          The three out-of-staters are enjoying their eight week
                      stay in Oregon, even though the summer school hours are
                      long. Jerry Strauss said he especially appreciated all the
                      fresh fruit and the cool nights.
                          Dot Jones added, "It's nice to be away from all the
                      tornados and the humidity."
                          As for the apparition, whatever it is, it does make the
                      work of labeling and filing more interesting, the students are

          EBEN HILL - “About 1840, Eben Hill and George W. Bergen came to Yellow Spring township from
          Dover, Lee County, IA, where they had been neighbors for a year or two. Both were soldiers in the
          war of 1812. They found the NE 1/4 sec. 24, 72, 2, a little too far prairieward, but entered it, Hill
          taking the west half. He lived here some fifteen years, and then sold to Rev. Joseph Kern; he moved to
          Franklin township, and married his second wife, Mrs. Toole. He died there in 1876. His oldest son,
          Eben, married Eliza Haight, and John married Armilda Harper and both moved to Oregon. John died
          there, and his widow married Dr. S. R. Bergen. William married a daughter of Abraham Banta.
          Lurissa was a popular teacher, died unmarried, in 1855, and is buried at Kossuth. The record of the
          next son, Hervey, I am unable to give. Hiram graduated at Yellow Spring College, class of '58, entered
          the ministry of the Presbyterian church and removed to California. The second wife had two sons, but
          they never were residents here. ”

     Extract from <58>: Eben moved with his wife and six children to Ohio sometime before 1839. <58> includes
a long letter from Eben to his brother Ludlow postmarked May 1, 1839 in Centerville, OH (with Killian on the
heading). The letter indicates that he was in financial trouble and did not receive the assistance from his brothers in
time - so he had to sell his property in Ohio, and was renting land (or planting it for a half-share) until he could
execute his plan to move to Missouri territory - to the Iowa country. He urged his brothers to raise all the money
they could and buy property in Iowa..
     <58> also states that after his first wife, Anna, died, Eben married Francis Toole and they had two children.

Shortly after Lydia's death in 1838, Ludlow moved his family to Illinois. The following is taken from the Wonewoc Reporter,
July 17, 1919.

           “ Something more than three quarters of a century ago, Ludlow Hill and his wife, Lydia Presley Hill, left Sackets
     Harbor, on the shores of aLake Ontario just above where the St. Laurence River starts on its journey to the sea, and
     with their family set sail on a lake boat to make a new home in the distant West, of which they had heard glowing
     accounts from adventurous spirits who had preceded them. Even in that early year the desire for land in the old state
     of New York had become greater than the supply, and this Ludlow Hill's father, Jedediah Hill, had only one farm on
     the bank of Sand Creek to the East of Sacketts Harbor, whereas his family was large. . . . ”

           “ The boats carrying this family were several weeks traversing the waters of Lakes Erie, Huron, and
     Michigan, but in time they landed at a trading point now grown to the great city of Chicago. Moving
     inland, Ludlow found a tract of land to suit him along the Fox River, not far from where Elgin, Ill is now
     located. There he prospered for a timeand then became ensnared by representatives of some Mormon
     missionaries. He sold his lands and moved to Beaver Island, in the northern part of Lake Michigan. This
     island was, at that time, colonized by Mormons, with a man known as King Strang at their head. It seems
     that he resembled a king only in a few respects, and was in reality a pirate chief. His chief occupation was
     to lure people of property to his island and there hold them and plunder them. The story of the island is
     one of robbery, rapine, and murder. He ruled his subjects with an iron hand, and ourside boats were not
     allowed to land until he had satisfied himself that they would cause him no trouble. The unfortunate
     members of his colony were thus rendered prisoners, and their condition was, for years, unknown to the
     outside world.

          Mr. Hill had invested his fortune on the island immediately after reaching there, but soon became
     disgusted with Mormonism as practiced. At the earliest opportunity he got his family away, but was
     compelled to abandon his property to do this, and thus lost the savings of the productive years of his life.
     He then located at Racine, Wisconsin for a time while he sought a place for a new home, and early in the
     1850's he moved to Wonewoc in central Wisconsin. Here land was cheap, and with the means at his
     disposal he was able to secure enough land for a small farm for each of his four sons and two daughters.”

        Descendants of Ludlow Hill are eligible for a Pioneer Certificate issued by the Kane County Pioneer
Committee, and part of the Elgin Genealogical Society. To be eligible for a certificate the ancestor must have been
born or settled in Kane County on or before 1840. The address is:
           Kane Co. Pioneers EGS, P.O. Box 1418, Elgin, Illinois 60121-0818

       During the next fifteen years the love of the land - the beauty, challenge and care of it - remained strong in
Ludlow's family, and religion once more became the dominant motivating factor. ”

         (The text goes on to refer to two letters and a narative written by Ludlow's son, Ludlow Presley Hill, that
relates most of the religious story later in the book.)

                                          Jedediah Hill Family
        The following chronology for Jedediah Hill and his family is not yet verified in all respects but represents
the data available so far. The census data from 1790 to 1840 did not list the names of family members, only the
heads of the family, so the names of the children or people living with the family are from other sources.

1761 - Jed was born as the fourth or fifth child of the second marriage of John Hill 3rd. If the first marriage is
       factual, Jed was the seventh of eight children. All the children except John 4th of the first marriage are
       listed as being born in Simsbury, CT.

1779-1782 - Jed served two enlistments as a private in the Revolutionary War. He was 18 and lived in West
      Simsbury at the time of recruitment into the Connecticut State Troops. See the following summary of his
      pension file for details.

1783 - Jed (age 22) married Abigail Kilby of Farmington, CT.

1790 - The first census lists Jedediah Hill living in Simsbury, CT, where his father and grandfather were born. Jed
       was living with his wife and three sons under 16. (Jedediah Jr. (6), John Henry (4), and Riley (3)) They were
       probably farmers.

1800 - Jedediah was not found in the 1800 census of Simsbury, CT or in Ellisburg, NY (Ellisburg was in Oneida
       County in 1800). They may have been in Canton, CT, where Jed‟s father, John 3rd is buried.

1806 - Riley, Polly, ___ and an uncle, died within about a month of each other In September.

1807 - Jedediah and his family moved from Connecticut to Sixtown, Jefferson County, New York. The Sixtown
       area included 17 mi. of shoreline on Lake Ontario and extended 27 mi. inland. It included the towns of
       Ellisburg, Lorraine, Adams, Henderson, Rodman, and Worth. Ellisburg is abt. 20 mi so. of Sacket's Harbor.
       The move to western New York was probably part of the general migration which took place after the
       Revolutionary War. Many of the land grants that had been given out by the English were nullified and the
       land sold, mostly to large developers and speculators who resold it to individuals. The farms in New
       England were nearly exhausted and the lure of better, fresh land caused many New England farmers to move
       West to New York between 1795 and 1820.

           In 1807 Jefferson County was a vast forest. Even the indians didn‟t try to live there during the cold and
       snowy winters caused by the lake effect of Lake Ontario. The first settlers walked to the Sixtown area on
       Indian foot trails. After a summer of clearing land and building log cabins they returned home for the
       winter. The next year the returned to Sixtown with their families, carrying all their tools, furniture, clothing,
       and some food in ox-drawn wagons.
           The Hill tradition has it that Jedediah settled on the bank of Sandy Creek to the East of Sackets Harbor
       in 1807.

1810 - The 1810 census shows Jed living in Jefferson County, NY, where he was buried in 1841.
        In 1810 the family included:
           1 man          over 45 [ Jed was 49 ]
           1 woman        over 45 [ Abby was 50 ]
           5 men                  16 - 26 [ Jedediah Jr (25), John (24), Eben (19), & ?____ & ?_____
           1 boy                  10 - 16 [ Ludlow was 15-16 ]
           1 girl         10 - 16 [ Abigail (13) ]
           1 boy           0 - 10 [ Ladue was 7 ]
  and      1 girl          0 - 10 [ Isabel was 4 - later Isabel Hill-Boice ]
 Total = 11       * Polly, and Riley were deceased by 1810

1812 - At the time of the War of 1812 Jedediah and his family were residing near Sackets Harbor on the shores of
       Lake Ontario. They were farming in that district and during the winter months crossed into Canada to make
       charcoal for commercial use. The war revived the danger from Indian tribes, who sided with the British.
       The Hill‟s, with other settlers, joined in constructing a log blockhouse at Sackets Harbor for their protection.
       Later, John, Eben and Ludlow Hill enlisted under Captain George Clark and Capt. Solomon McCumber in a
       New York militia unit which they had organized. The general index to the veterans of the war lists John,
       Eben and Ludlow as privates in the 55th Reg. (Allen‟s), and Jedediah Hill as a private in the 61st Reg.
           Their first taste of war came soon after, when a British fleet of five lake ships, headed by the Royal
       George, sailed up to Sackets Harbor and attempted to bombard the fort. The blockhouse stood on a bluff
       above the lake shore so the Britishers were unable to elevate their cannon for efficient fire on the fort. The
       Americans had similar difficulties, as the balls for their cannon were too small and would not stick in the
       barrels when the pieces were depressed. They remedied that somewhat by wrapping the balls in cloth. Later
       a ball from the British cannon was found to fit the American guns. They scored a direct hit on an attacking
       vessel and the British withdrew.
          Ludlow, having turned eighteen just two months after the war began, in June of 1812, was required to
       serve in the militia, as were all men from 18 to 45. Only elected officials, slaves, and prisoners were exempt
       from this duty. Ludlow was stationed at Horse Island and stood guard many a night on the High Rocks from
       Sackets harbor and along the shore. He also served at the Scotch Settlement and when the British were
       laying the blockade off of Point Pensholz to ward the big Galues. He is listed in the index as “Ludd Hill”
       and in some of the family records as “Lud”.
           See [6H3] for an account of John’s service on the Forseyth Expedition to Frontenac, Canada.

1814 - The historic battle of “Big” Sandy Creek took place in the spring of 1814 and the area around the Hill farm
       remained in the war zone until the end of the war. Jedediah‟s son, Ladue, was ten or twelve when he went
       squirrel hunting and heard cannon at Stony Point. He picked up English musket balls and used them for his
       squirrel gun. The War of 1812 was ended by the signing of a treaty in Ghent, Belgium in December of 1814,
       but news of the treaty didn‟t reach Sackets Harbor until the spring of 1815.

1815 - Jed‟s daughter Abigail Hill died 26 Jan 1815 and jed and Abby adopted her daughter, little Abigail born on
       21 Jan 1815. (Little Abigail later married Calvin Leonard and died 21 Feb 1838 at the age of 23 yrs. & 1 mo.
       Her headstone in Woodside Cemetery has the inscription “Erected by her friend, Amasa Hungerford”.)
          After the war and the death of his daughter, Abigail, Jedediah was the first settler in Rural Hill.

1820 - The 1820 census recorded Jed, still in Ellisburg, NY with a family of:
           1 man over 45        [Jed Sr. (59)],
           1 man (18-25)        [Ludlow (25)], 1 boy (10-15) [ Ladue (17) ],
           1 girl    (10-15)    [Isabel (14)], 1 girl ( 0-10) [ Abigail(5)- adopted ],
        & 1 woman over 45       [Abigail (60)].     Three are farmers.
   Also listed in Ellisburg in 1820 are:
   Hill, Jedediah Jr., a man 26-45 (then 35) living with a wife 26-45, and 2 sons, and 5 daughters.
       Two people were farmers, (Jed Jr. and older son?)
   Hill, John (a man and wife 26-45 with 1 boy 0-10) (John was 34 - See note on 5H0-4)
   Hill, Eben (man and wife 26-45 with 1 boy 0-10) (Eben was 29)
           Not in census were: Riley (dec.), or Ludlow (25) (with Jed Sr.)

1825 - Jedediah constructed the brick house in Rural Hill. The family home is still there and is now a
        national historic site. The following is taken from The Watertown Daily Times.
           “ One of the most attractive of Jefferson County‟s old homes is the one of red brick, said to have been
       built in 1825 by Jedediah Hill, at the four corners, which is the hamlet of Rural Hill in the town of Ellisburg.
       The Bellville lake front road crosses the Woodville-Henderson road to make the four corners and there
       Jedediah Hill was the first settler about 1815. It is said that he was a Mormon a few years later, one of
       several that embraced that belief in the 1830‟s.
       According to tradition his brick house was built for a tavern with six rooms on the first floor, fireplace,
       bake-oven, etc., and upstairs there was a ballroom with a spring floor.
           Jedediah Hill eventually transferred the mansion, along with the farm on which it stood, to his son,
       Eben, and after a time Eben conveyed it to his brother, John. John and Esther sold the property, amounting
       to 66 acres, on April 4, 1836 to Amasa Hungerford, one of the best known early residents of Ellisburg.
       When Amasa Hungerford died on June 10, 1848, the mansion and farm went to his son Philo in the resulting
       distribution of the estate.”
           The name of the hamlet was taken from the “Rural Hill Store” and post office. It was also known as
       “Buck Hill”.

1830 - No census index was available locally, but a search of Jefferson Co. found John, Ludlow,
       and Eben Hill. Only heads of family are listed so Jed and Abigail may be living with another
       family. Listed in John Hill‟s family are John (44), a 70-80 year old woman, a boy and girl 15-20,
       (the boy from the 1820 census and the adopted Abigail?), a man 20-30 (Ladue?), another man
       40-50, and a woman 40-50 (Esther).
       Jed and Abigail may be living with Eben or Jed Jr.

1832 - Jed, age 71, living in Ellisburg, applied for soldier's pension. This pension was not granted and
       the papers were lost. The deposition was witnessed by Pitt Morse, clergyman, and Ebben Hill.

1840 - Neither Jed Sr. or Abigail are found in the NY census. Jed (then 79) and Abigail (80) were
        probably living with Jed Jr. in Loraine.

The facts gleaned from the file are:

First Enlistment

        Jedediah Hill served two enlistments in the army during the Revolutionary War. He first enlisted in
October, 1779 while a resident of Simsbury, Hartford, CT. He served as a private in the Connecticut State Troops
under the Regiment of Colonel Enos in the company of Captain Amasa Miles (or Miels) from October, 1779 until
November of 1781.

        Jed reported to the regiment at Farmington, CT. The regiment then moved through New Haven, Stratford
Ferry, Milford, Norwalk, and Greenwich - finally arriving at Horse Neck, near Long Island Sound, where it
remained for some time in November until the following March.

       At Horse Neck Jedediah assisted in capturing Captain Mead of "the Refugees" who was later hanged.
There were six to seven hundred troops at Horse Neck and General Washington visited several times. General
Rufus Putnam also visited the camp. General David Waterbury may have been commandant (per ltr. of 13 Sep
1781 fm. Waterbury to Putnam while he selecting a site).

        In March the regiment left Horse Neck and went from one place to another (including New Rochelle,
Danbury, and White Plains, NY). In November of 1781 the troop had returned to Stratford, CT where Jed received
a written discharge from Col. Enos (which Jed lost soon after).

Second Enlistment

        When his first enlistment was up Jedediah stated his intention to go back to Connecticut to get married.
Capt. Miles wanted him to re-enlist and so granted Jed a furlough to get married. Jed re-enlisted in the fall of 1781
and took his furlough from November '81 to March '82.

         Abigail refused to marry him while he was still a soldier so he returned to Capt. Miles' company and served
there from March, 1782 until the company was discharged in New Haven, CT.

       Billings Worden served in the same company as Jedediah under Capt. Miles and Colonel Canfield from
March 1782 until discharge in March 1783.

       From Spring 1781 to spring 1782 - Ephraim Wright, John Pettingell, and Samuel Woodworth were in the
same regiment. Wright and Woodworth were in Capt. Smith's company. Pettingell was in Capt. James Dana's
company under Major Shipman. Battalion Cdrs were Maj Humphry and Maj Shipman.

        John Pettingell recalled the action at Frog Point (also called Frog Neck) where Jedediah Hill also fought.
The Connecticut Troop captured a British cannon mounted on a wire swivel so it could be fired in any direction.
They killed several of the British and drove the rest off. Fearing that the cannon might be recaptured, the patriots
smashed the cannon to pieces on the rocks below.

Jedediah’s Marriage to Abigail Kilby

         John Bartlett, pastor of the Congregational Church of Avon, Conn. in the County of Hartford,
testified in July, 1849 that he held the record of the marriage of Jedediah Hill of West Simsbury, Conn to
Abigail Kilby of Farmington on March 13th, 1783, written in the hand of Rev. Rufus Hawley who was
then the pastor.

        Theda Kilby, the wife of Abigail's brother Allen Kilby, testified in Sept, 1849 that Jedediah and
Abigail moved from Connecticut to Jefferson County, NY about 42 years previously (about 1807). She
verified the marriage and Jed's death, and recalled Abigail telling her that she and Jed were engaged to be
married in the spring of 1782, but when he came home on furlough she refused to marry him as long as he
was still a soldier. After Jed returned from his second enlistment they were married, in March of 1783.

Pension Applications from Jedediah and Abigail

        Jedediah applied for a soldiers pension in 1832 which apparently was not granted and the papers
were lost after the magistrate died and his papers were burned. Abigail applied for a widow's pension in
1848 but no action was forthcoming on it so she enlisted the services of a lawyer and later a congressman
to assist her is obtaining benefits.

        The lawyer filed a suit against the State of New York and the congressman wrote an empassioned
plea to the War Pensions Bureau. With the application of the additional pressure, the claims were quickly
granted and in November 1849 Abigail was granted pension benefits under four different acts of congress.
These allowed her to draw a pension of $80/yr retroactively from Jedediah's death.

Inquiries sent to the Director of Pensions or War Pensions Bureau
   in Washington, DC. and filed with Jedediah Hill's pension file.
         Jan 24, 1910 - Mrs. Anna D. Boomer - Vice Pres., Deborah Champion Chapter D.A.R

                                        John Henry Hill Family
           The following chronology for John Henry Hill and family is not verified in all respects but represents the data available
to date.

 JUN 1786 - John Henry was the second son born to Jedediah Hill and Abigail Kilby-Hill, probably in Simsbury or
      Canton, Connecticut.

 1807 - John (age 21) moved to Jefferson County, NY with his father's family.

 FEB 1809 - John (age 22) married Esther Adams

 1812 - John served in the army in the War Of 1812. He saw action at Sacketts Harbor, NY, Lake Ontario, and at
       the Battle of New Orleans (Jan 8, 1815) under General Andrew Jackson.<ref.3> (see 6H3 for service)

 1820 - Census lists John Hill in Ellisburg, NY, age 26-44 (John was then 33) living with a woman (age 26-44) and
       a boy (0-10). Several sources indicated that John had no children from his first marriage.

 1830 - Census lists John Hill in Ellisburg, NY. The family consisted of two men 40-50, one woman 40-50, a boy
       and a girl 15-20, a man 20-30, and a woman 70-80. John was 43; the boy (15-20) is probably the boy from
       the 1820 census; the girl (15-20) is probably the adopted Abigail Leonard and the man (20-30) may be
       brother Ladue (age 27). Ladue and Abigail Leonard were previously living with Jed Sr. The other man
       (40-50) is unknown.

 1836 - John and Esther Sold the house and land at Rural Hill, NY, which had been built by Jedediah in 1825, and
       later moved to bounty land in Iowa. John is not listed in the 1840 census for either NY or Iowa.

     (Extract: Yellow Springs and Huron, by J. W. Merrill, self published in Mediapolis, IA. in 1897...pgs 138, 139)

            JOHN HILL - Was an older brother and came later (than Eben), direct from his home in New York. He
            bought on the prairie adjoining Eben. His wife, Esther had no children. She died in 1848. He sold his
            prairie farm after his wife's death, and moved to the northern part of Benton township. By his second wife,
            Sarah A. Haight, were three sons, John, Cornelius, and Riley, and a daughter, Esther, wife of Jas. Morgan.
            Eben and all his family except Hiram, were orderly, earnest members of the Baptist church. John was an
            outsider, his expressed creed was: "Fear God and keep the commandments, and by jiminy, I'll insure the
            salvation of every one of you." He died near Burlington. He had been a soldier in the war of 1812, and his
            widow drew a pension till her death in 1895"

            Note: ? In 1999 Benton is in So. central IA. There is a Bentonsport in SE. IA, but it is 40 mi. from Kossuth.

 1848 - Esther Adams-Hill died in Des Moines County, Iowa. She is buried in Kossuth Cemetary, Yellow Springs
       Twp., Des Moines Co., Iowa. The stone reads: "Esther, wife of John Hill.
        d. 20 Dec, 1848 age 61 y____ " (the rest is buried).

6H2 ]
 Oct 1849 - John Henry Hill married Sarah Ann Haight on 30 October, 1849 in DesMoines County, Iowa by
       Thomas M. Kirkpatrick, minister of the Methodist Church. They were married in Morris Bridges house.
       The record in Des Moines County Marriage Book #3 states "John Hile (62) to Sally Ann Haight (20)", but
       the researcher for the Des Moines Gen. Society says the handwritten "Hill" was probably misinterpreted.
       Sarah (Sally) was born in Marieta, Ohio. (The 1895 census listed her birthplace as Athens, OH and her
       religious preference as Presbyterian).

 1850 - John Hill Sr. is listed in the 1850 census living in Des Moines County, Yellow Springs District, Iowa as a
       60 year old farmer born in Connecticut living with Sally Ann (age 21) and Mary Jane (age 19), both from
       Ohio. Mary Jane Haight is Sarah's niece. The estimated value of their property is $500.

 1850 - Also listed in the Yellow Springs District in 1850 is Eben Hile, (John’s brother) a farmer born in
       Connecticut, with four children born in New York:
          Harry (25), William (23), Louisa (21) and Hiram (19). (Eben Jr. is married & in OH or OR)

 SEP 1850 - John William Hill was born in Kossuth, Des Moines Co., IO
     1852 - James Riley Hill was born Aug, 1852
     1854 - Cornelius H. Hill was born May, 1854
     1856 - Esther Ann Hill was born Mar, 1857

 1860 - The census lists Sarah Ann Hill living with four children: John, James, Cornelius, and Esther, in the
       Yellow Springs District of Des Moines County, Iowa. The estimated value of their real estate is $475 and
       personal property is estimated at $75. John was found in the 1860 census of Jackson Twp., Des Moines
       Co., IA living with Milton and Clarissa Saliday (Sally's sister).

 186? - John went into Missouri and “laid” the remaining two land warrants in Oregon County, planning to leave
       the land for support of his family. According to Esther, he returned ill from the journey and never gave
       much information about the land he had taken up.

 FEB 1869 - John Henry Hill died at age 83 at the county poor farm in Des Moines County, Iowa. He is buried in
      Kossuth Cemetary, Des Moines Co., Iowa. The military stone reads: "Hill, John, Pvt. N.Y. Militia. War
      1812 d. 23 Feb, 1869"

        From <58> per Esther Ann Morgan: “After John‟s death Sarah continued to raise her little family as best
        she could. She never went to the expense of looking up and claiming the Missouri land. Attempts to locate
        it failed. Years later it was found that Oregon County, MO had been divided and that the land was located
        in Shannon County. When it was finally traced down, it was found that a suit to quiet title had been
        brought, and that the timber had been cut off by the Moss Land and Tie Co. The Hill family never received
        any benefits from it.”

 1870 - The census lists Sarah Ann Hill with the same four children as in the 1860 census, still in the Yellow
       Springs District, Des Moines County, Iowa.

The Hill Family - 1651 to 2000, Ed. 5.0    8/18/2010                                      Page 51

 Oct 1875 - Sarah Hill is one of the heirs of John Haight (her uncle), and the deed of Aaron Haight lists Sarah Hill,
       Mary Jane Haight, Clarissa Saladay, Delia R. Randall, Zelda Ketchum, and Moses Haight.
       (See the Des Moines Co. Real Estate Register #1 following [6Ha6-2].

 1876 - John's brother, Eben, died and was buried in Kossuth Cemetary. The Military stone reads: "Hill, Eben, Pvt.
       N.Y. Militia. War 1812 d. 7 Mar, 1876".

 1880 - The census lists Sarah, John W., James and Esther living in the same place. Esther's husband, James
       Morgan, is living with them. Cornelius (age 26) has married and moved out.

 1895 - The census of Des Moines County, Franklin Township lists (Dwelling #32, Family # 33)
        Name                  Age Race sex           Marital.    Place of birth     Religious Pref.
        Sarah Hill,           65 white female widowed Oh, Athens                     Presbyterian.

           * Esther is presumably James's daughter and Andrew is the brother of his deceased wife.

 APR 1895 - Sarah Ann Haight-Hill died at age 89 in Des Moines County, Iowa.

 MAR 1946 - Esther Ann Hill-Morgan died at age 89 in Independence, Oregon and was the last living pensioner of
     the War of 1812. Esther Ann's daughter, Mrs. Paul Johnson lived in Independence, OR in 1932.

The Hill Family - 1651 to 2000, Ed. 5.0     8/18/2010                                       Page 52
                             The Pension File of John H. Hill                                                       [ 6H3 ]
          I finally received copies of the documents in John Hill's pension file on 31 Jul 1995. My first request was in March '94,
so if you ever have dealings with the Department of Veterans Affairs, be patient. The File, XC2707589, was in the Veterans
Administration (as opposed to the archives).

         The contents were somewhat disappointing, as they did not give much further information about John or his parents and
were mostly concerned with the pensions of Sarah Hill, the widow, and Esther Ann Morgan, John's daughter. Most of the
documents regarded the fact that Esther Ann was still receiving a pension so long after the war was over and many were queries
from people who also wanted pensions for themselves, followed by patient letters from the bureau stating the policy and the fact
that Esther Ann's pension was allowed only due to a special act of congress in 1927 that granted it because she was the "helpless
and dependent" child of a veteran. A few useful facts, however, were uncovered.

         A Newspaper clipping attached to one of the query letters (ca.1939) stated:
“DAUGHTER OF VETERAN OF 1812 STILL LIVING - ... Mrs. Morgan of Independence, Ore., clear-eyed and hearty
despite her 80 years, draws a federal pension of $20 monthly for her father's two enlistments in that conflict. Her grandfather
fought in the Revolutionary War and enlisted again with his four sons in 1812."

          A Certificate Of Marriage from State of Iowa, Des Moines County states: "I Hereby Certify that on the 30 day of
October A.D.1849 I did solemnize the Marriage of Mr. John Hill aged sixty two years to Miss Sally Ann Haight ages twenty
years at the house of Morris Bridges in said County" signed by Thomas M. Kirkpatrick, minister M.E.C. on 7 Nov 1849.

     Letters from Esther in 1941, addressed to Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Director of Claims pleading for an increase in her
pension also indicated:

   - John's 1st enlistment was under Capt. George Clark, N.Y. Militia. His second enlistment at Sacketts Harbor was under
      Capt. Solomon McCumber in the 55th Volunteer Regiment of New York. John furnished his own clothes and served
      without pay.

   - From <58> For his service he received three land warrants for 160 acres each, one for each of the two enlistments and one
      for furnishing his own clothes. He apparently used one of the land warrants in Iowa. The other two were claimed in
      Oregon County, Missouri, but after his death the family was unable to get possession of it.

        Also from <58> John also served with an American expedition to Frontenac, Canada, for a
        successful attack on the British stonghold there. The expedition travelled by boat and is described
        in the following exerpt from the account of Forseyth‟s Expedition:

            “The Vigilant Captain Forsyth made a bold dash into Canada late in September, having been
        informed that a large quantity of munitions were in a British storehouse at Gananoqui, on the shores
        of the Lake of the Thousand Islands, in Canada, and were not heavily guarded. Forsyth obtained
        permission from General Brown to make an attempt to capture them. (Gananoqui is just below old
        Fort Frontenac on the St. Lawrence River.) He organized an expedition of one hundred and four
        men, consisting of seventy riflemen and thirty-four militia, the latter officered by Capt. Samuel
        Mc‟Nitt, Lieut. Brown, and Ensigns Hawkins and Johnson. They set out from Sackett‟s Harbor on
        the 18th of September. On the night of the 20th they left Cape Vincent in boats, threading their way
        in the dark among the upper group of the Thousand Islands. They landed a short distance from the
        village of Gananoqui, only ninety-five strong, without opposition. As they approached the town
        they were confronted by a party of sixty British regulars and fifty Canadian Militia, drawn up in
        battle order, who poured heavy volleys upon them.
            Forsyth dashed forward with his men without firing a shot until within a hundred yards of the
        enemy, when the latter fled pellmell to the town, closely followed by the invaders. There the
        fugitives rallied and renewed the engagement. They were again compelled to flee, leaving ten of
        their number dead on the field, several wounded, and eight regulars and four militiamen as
        prisoners. Forsyth lost only one man killed and one slightly wounded. For his own safety, he broke
        up the bridge over which he had pursued the enemy, and then returned to his boats, bearing away, as
        the spoils of victory, the eight regulars, sixty stand of arms, two barrels of fixed ammunition
        containing three thousand ball cartridges, one barrel of gunpowder, one of flints, forty -one
        muskets, and some other public property. In the storehouse were found one hundred and fifty
        barrels of provisions, but having no means of carrying them away, Capt. Forsyth applied the torch
        and storehouse and provisions were consumed. The public property secured on this occasion was
        given to the soldiers of the expedition as a reward for their valor.”
        (Exerpt from The Pictorial Field Book of the War of 1812. as quoted in <58>)

            John Hill took part in several other skirmishes, serving two years in all. (see 6H0) He received
        no compensation from the government for his war service except three land warrants for 160 acres
        each. One for each of the two enlistments and the third as compensation for furnishing his own

   - Esther was afflicted with an eye infection at age 7 and lost the sight in one eye. By age 85 she was mostly blind, had been
      sick over a year, and needed assistance in her daily life. The requested increase in pension was to pay someone to help

   - Esther's husband served as an errand boy in the civil war as he was too young to enlist

   - Sarah Hill filed for a $12/mo pension on 16 Nov 1888, under the Act of Mar 1888 and was receiving it at the time of her
      death (1 Apr 1895 at Sperry, Iowa).

   - The Daughters of 1812 wrote the Veterans Dept. and Senator Rufus Holman in Jan 1944 requesting an increase in Esther's
      pension from $20 to $50. A special bill was introduced in congress to effect this, but responses to inquiries as late as June
      1946 indicate that there was no authority to increase the pension above $20/mo.

   - Senate bill S.626 of the 77th Congress, 1st session, introduced by McNary dated 27 Jan 1941 reads: "A BILL Granting an
      increase of pension to Esther Ann Hill Morgan. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
      States of America in Congress assembled, That the Administrator of Veterans Affairs be, and is hereby authorized and
      directed to place on the pension roll, subject to the provisions and limitations of the pension laws, the name of Esther Ann
      Hill Morgan, helpless and dependent daughter of John Hill, late of Captain G. W. Clark's company, New York Militia,
      and of Captain S. McCumber's company, War of 1812, and pay her a pension at the rate of $50 per month in lieu of what
      she is now receiving."

   - Sarah A. Hill, pension #35106, was dropped from the pension rolls on 5 Sep 1895 due to her death at Sperry, Iowa in Apr

   - A letter from Mrs. H.F. Hayes in Willsville Kansas on 18 Feb 1935 requested a pension for John W. Hill, son of John Hill
      and Sarah Ann Haight, who was past age 83 and in need of finances. (The response was negative)

   - The Superintendant of the Des Moines County Poor Farm stated that John Hill died at said poor farm on 23 Feb 1869 at
      age 82. (affidavit of Milton Barnett)

   From <58> An article appeared in The Enterprise of Independence, Oregon on January 15, 1932.
        “Independence Woman on International News Reel”. The article states that “The International Newsreel has used
      pictures of Mrs. Morgan and her father, John Hill, on the screen and The San Francisco Call-Bulletin has published a
      feature story using the pictures with added data as to the remarkable record.” The balance of the article refers to John‟s
      service and the fact that Esther Ann was still receiving a pension more than 116 years after the end of the War of 1812.

    In Drakes History of Boston we find Simon Hoyte on the “List of the names of such as are known to have been
in Salem and about the north side of the MA Bay before and in the year 1629.”

   The name Simon Hoyt appears on the first list of 'such as took the oath of freeman' in MA, 5-18-1631.
We find Symon Hoite mentioned in the Dorchester records of 1633. On the 8th of October, in the same year,
Symon Hoyte was chosen one of that town's committee to 'see to fences' for the east fields.
 A Biographical Album of Prominent Pennsylvanians, First Series, The Am. Biographical Pub. Co., 1888, Philadelphia.

    Simon apparently sailed to Charlestown from Gravesend on the "Abigail" with Gov. John Endicott, arriving
Sept 6,1628.           Info from "Passengers & Ships" and "The Hancock Genealogy".
    Other sources suggest he came on the Higginson Fleet, "George" or "Lyons Whelp", 1629 .
Simon was one of a group which travelled from Salem through the woods to establish the town of Charlestown in
the summer of 1629.

    He was also one of the first settlers of Dorchester in 1630.
From the Dorchester Records,
 " April 3, 1633, Symon Hoite is given on a list as having two cows, and is therefore required to put up 40 feet of
fence on the marsh.
    Oct. 8, 1633, Symon Hoyte is one of the two appointed to 'see to the fences....for the east field.'
    Jan 6. 1633, 'it is ordered, that the marsh and swamp before Goodman Hosford and davy Wil(ton) shall be
devided among themselves and Symon Hoyte.'
    May 24, 1634, Symon Hoyte is one of the two appointed to 'view the pales' (fences) of the north field.
    June 2, 1634, 'it is ordered that Goodman Witchfeild and Goodman Hoyte shall have to be devided betweene
them the marsh that lies in the north side of the necke, towords Boston, over agaynst m,. Rainsfords house,
in Boston, being for 8 acres, by estimation.'
    Feb. 10, 1634, Symon Hoyte is mentioned as keeping one bull.
    April 17, 1635, 'it is also ordered that the lott of medow that was Symon Hoytes, next to Boston side, Joyning to
John WitchLeild, shall be devided betwixt m,. Rodger Williams and Gyles Gibbes' "

    He moved to Scituate in the spring of 1635, as "Symeon Hayte" and his wife joined the Scituate church
4-19-1635. "Goodman Haites" house was built there between 9-1634 and 10-1636.
    He then moved on to Windsor, Conn. by 1639, where he was granted 80 acres 2-28-1640. This land, known as
Hoyt's Meadow, was away from the other settlers. He and his family had enough to do to protect themselves from
the Indians, so were excused from 'watch and ward', or traveling a long distance to guard those who lived in the
    There was a Hoyte child that died in Windsor, 1647, and an "Onld Goode Hoyt (or Hayt)" that died there in
1644. The identity of these cannot be determined. In 1646, Simon sold land in Hoyt's Meadow, with house, barn,
etc. to William Thrall, who moved to it the same year.
    Simon moved to Fairfield by 3-6-1649, when he is recorded as having obtained several parcels of land there.
Some of this may have been obtained earlier, and only recorded then.
    Simon moved to Stamford by 1657, where he died. Inventory of estate was taken 10-9-1657, and entered
For many years Simon was believed to have a different ancestry (HHH by David Hoyt - 1671; Journal of Rev. Silas
Constant, by E. W. Roebling, 1903), which placed him and family from Upway, Dorset and his first wife as Deborah
Stowers. The New Hoyt Ancestry is from research by Robin Bush, 1994-1996 as reported in "Hoyts Issue";
and in " The Great Migration Begins", by Robert C. Anderson, 1995.
    Simon sold the West Hatch property in 1632-33, three years after he emigrated, and Thomas Coleman, his
Tenant paid off Hoyt's Entry Fine. This indicates he waited until he was permanently settled in the New World
before divesting himself as such in England.

                     Ancestry of Jemima Waters - Wife of Aaron Haight Jr.

        The ancestors of Jemima Waters can be traced back to very early roots in England. The direct Waters line
extends to Henry Waters, born early in the 1500‟s. The ancestors of Richard Waters can be traced through his
mother, Phebe Manning, another nine generations back to Simon Manning (b: Abt. 1235) of Bettreds Castle in
Kent, England. Another line extends from Richard‟s grandmother, Agnes Petley, through five more generations to
Richard Petley (b: Abt. 1321) of Downe, Kent, England. Agnes's mother, Christiana Philipots may also be traced
back for six generations, though few details are known of them so far.

                                                 Reference <64>
          “ The first white men to be seen in the Smith River Valley were James Haight and his son Daniel who had
arrived in Crescent City in May 1853 and soon afterwards settled in the Smith River Valley. This was not their first
trip to California, for on April 2, 1850, James Haight with his two sons, Henry and Daniel, and three brothers,
Moses, Cornelius, and Jacob Haight with an Uncle Eben Hill had arrived in Hangtown, California, on September 5,
1850, after a journey of five months and three days from their Iowa home. An account of this trip was left by Henry
Haight and kept by his daughter, Mrs. Martha (Haight) Stapleton of Burlington, Iowa. The account told of their
mining and the gambling places; the hangings were described, as well as a talk by Brigham Young at Salt Lake.
Near Salt Lake, the party had stayed with a Haight cousin who had exchanged their tired, worn-out oxen for fresh
ones. The men rested there for several weeks before they returned to Iowa where Henry Haight purchased his Iowa
farm with the gold he had found in California. On account of his wife's health, James Haight and his son
Daniel again started for California, but were detained at Fort Hall where the wife died and was buried along the
trail. Father and son drove their oxen team across her grave to hide it from the Indians and continued their journey
to the west.
          James Haight b. 6-26-1801 in Dutchess County, New York, son of Cornelius and Abigail (Atwood) Haight,
went with his parents who first settled in Athens County, Ohio, in 1816, and in 1837 moved to Mediapolis, Des
Moines County, Iowa, where a branch of the family continue to live. James Haight m. 1826 in Athens County,
Ohio, Lydia Howard Fulton. Their two children were: Henry b. 1-13-1827 in Marietta, Ohio, m. Margaret Givson;
          Daniel b. 4-2-1829 in Marietta, Ohio, became the first white settler in the Smith River Valley, where he was
married 3-1-1868 to Mrs. Fannie (McVay) Adams, a widow with four children. Her husband had been killed in
Newton County, Missouri, prior to the trouble between the states at the time of the Civil War. In 1866, her brother
Joseph McVay had returned to Missouri for her and her orphaned children, and brought them west to join the rest of
her family who had been living in the Smith River Valley since 1860. On the way west, the children had the
whooping cough, and at San Francisco they missed the monthly steamer to Crescent City. Joseph McVay, ever a
resourceful pioneer, took his charges to Sacramento where they caught the stage for Jacksonville, Oregon. There
Joseph bought a team of horses and a wagon and drove them to Smith River over that early road that could scarcely
be called one.
          The Adams children were: Elizabeth m. William Hargraves; Benonia b.10-2-1860 m. Martha Smith;
Sophronia m. James Hursh; Eddie b. 8-27-1864 in Newton County, Missouri, named for her father, Edward Adams,
who was killed in 1864, m. in Del Norte County, William Westbrook.
          The children of Fannie McVay and her second husband, Daniel Haight, were: Lydia m. Riley Packard;
Laura m. 1st Bert Thomas, m. 2nd Frank Cassidy; Ada m. Joseph Hursh; Letsy m. Lot Beckstead; Henrietta m. Milo
Woodruff; Frank m. Mae Plaisted; Fred m. Stella Trumble; Fred Haight, present supervisor of Del Norte County
from Smith River.
          In the "Haight-Hoyt Genealogy" by D. W. Hoyts and in the "Haight Genealogy" by Aaron Haight may be
found the lineage of James and Daniel Haight whose ancestors are traced many generations into the New England
states and into England. Aaron Haight was the Revolutionary War ancestor b. 1-11-1750 in Dutchess County, New
York. (See D.A.R. number 136213).
          The descendants of James and Daniel Haight are also eligible to join the Society of the Magna
Charta through the lineage of the wife of Aaron Haight. Her name was Jemima Waters,a descendant of Richard
de Manning, Crusader Richard I, 1190 A.D. Downe, Kent, Eng.; King Edward I of England was also an ancestor. It
is said that once a lineage has been traced back into these royal lines, it is well recorded and defined back to Adam.

         The following biography appeared in a 1946 newspaper article in either Miles City Star
         or The Billings Gazette following the death of Esther Ann Morgan.

         Aunt of W. H. Hill of Tusler Region Last War 1812 Pensioner
         John William Hill, father of the local Mr. Hill,, born at Kossuth, Des Moines Co., IA, was a pioneer in the middle west.
His pioneering spirit, following his operation of a saw mill near Oquaqua, Iowa took him to Medicine Lodge, Kansas, where in
1876 he homesteaded on government land, from which point he hauled freight from Wichita, the nearest rail point. Here he
encountered hardships, engaged in hunting buffalo, and had several skirmishes with Indians which were numerous in Kansas at
that time.

         Two years later, in 1879, he returned to Kossuth and was employed in a sawmill until in 1882 when he operated a farm
in DesMoines Co., Iowa. Extending his intrest, he operated a threshing machine, and to him is given the credit of owning and
operating the first threshing outfit and doing the first plowing in in Louisa county, Iowa. Subsequently he acquired land holdings
on the banks of the Mississippi River where he purchased a saw mill, cut timber, and shipped it to basket factories at Burlington
and Fort Madison by floating it down the stream. Later he shipped his saw mill to Oklahoma, remaining for several years to
1902, when he went to Cherryville, Kansas.

         Attracted by the possibilities for oil development, Mr. Hill's father purchased well drilling machinery which he
operated in the oil fields at Cherryville and Coffeyville, also drilling in the old Nowala, Okla. fields. In later years he operated
a ranch near Holly, Colorado and in 1921 retired after disposing of all his property, but revived his business activities after
moving to Garden City, Kas., where he bought a large tract of land, returning again to Cherryville where he made his home until
the death of Mrs. Hill. . . . ”

         W. H. Hill said that John William was a millionaire - at times.

  - A letter from Mrs. H. F. Hayes in Willsville Kansas on 18 Feb 1935 requested a pension for John W. Hill, son of John Hill
and Sarah Ann Haight, who was past age 83 and in need of finances. (The response was negative)

        born in Ireland, with Mary Ann (18), born in New York, and three daughters:
        Emily (7), Ellen (3), & Mary(1). Mary Ann’s age is possibly incorrect - or she is not the
        mother of all the girls (mother at 13?). If they are Irish Catholics it may be that Mary’s

          land where Peoria, Ill. now stands. He always carried a cake of “Blue Mass” calomel
          on which he nibbled “indescriminently”. It must not have done any harm, since he lived
          to be 94, when he dropped dead coming to breakfast on the path to the house.

                                           The Wilder Family                                             [ 7W2 ]
        The Wilder family are related by marriage to the Hills. Samuel Steven Wilder married Margaret
Bevans-Fox and became the stepfather of Mary Ellen Fox. Sam's son from his first marriage, Charles
Gifford Wilder, later married Mary Ellen Fox-Hill after she was divorced from John William Hill. C.G.
Wilder then became the stepfather of William H. Hill. The histories of the two families were closely
related from the time of the migration from S.E. Iowa to Texas around 1885 until the settlement in the
Miles City, Montana area in 1902.

           The following account was extracted from the Wilder family history that was
           supplied by Bruce Bannister. The text in brackets [] was added by J. Hill.
                   - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
        Sam S. Wilder was born on December 2, 1832 in Rochester, Genesee County, New York. His parents'
names are unknown. It is believed that they came from the New England states and his father was a farmer. Sam
had two brothers, Dave and Andrew. After the family migrated to southern Michigan one of the brothers lived in
Ypsilanti, Mich. and the other lived in Rochester, Mich (both are in the Detroit area).

         Sam married Harriet Ann Smades around 1856 and Charles Gifford Wilder was born to them in Girard,
Mich. on August 30, 1857. They are believed to have had a farm between Girard and Tekonsha. The Civil War
began in April, 1861 and Michingan became "one vast recruiting station". As one volunteer remarked, "Joining the
army was like small pox - - It's catching". Sam enlisted in the 1st Michigan Infantry Volunteers, Company E as a
private on September 14, 1861. Colonel Robinson was his commandant. This left Harriet and son Charles (age 4)
to run the farm or go live with her parents or relatives in Burlington, Mich.

        In the early part of August, 1862 while serving at Harrison's Landing in Virginia, Sam (now a corporal)
became ill, "suffering from chronic diarrhea caused by exposure, which has resulted in rheumatism". He was
hospitalized in York, Penn., where he remained until November 4th, 1862 when he deserted. It is believed that he
had been informed that his wife was sick or had died so he returned to Burlington.

        The next record of Sam was after the general amnesty for union deserters by the Presidential Proclamation
of April 21, 1865. On July 21, 1865 he was discharged at Jackson, Michigan which is about 32 miles east of
Tekonsha, Michigan. Sam married Margaret Fox on 16 Oct 1867 in Muscatine Co.,Iowa and on 13 Feb 1875, S. S.
Wilder appeared at the DesMoines County Court House in Iowa to secure a marriage license for his under-age
stepdaughter, Mary Ellen Fox, and John W. Hill. Harold Wilder mentioned that Charles ran away from home
when he was twelve (1869) and went to live with his uncle Andrew, possibly related to Sam's remarriage to

         Sam and his wife, Margaret, later moved to Medicine Lodge, Kansas where Margaret's brother, Charles
Bevans, and wife, Sally, lived. [C.G. married Mary Ellen Jun 12,1880 ]
The Medicine Lodge River went on the rampage on April 20, 1885 and Dale Wilder wrote that his grandfather
(Sam) and his father (Charles) were able to save themselves on a floating log, while his mother, Mary had to chop a
hole in the roof to escape the waters and was later pulled from a tree top by a cowboy from the Standifer ranch.
         It is thought that Charlie worked for various cattle outfits for the next couple of years in the Cherokee Strip
or Outlet (now called the Oklahoma Panhandle). In the fall of 1891 Sam travelled back to Medicine Lodge and to
Tekonsha, Michigan where he made affidavits before Justices of the Peace in order to apply for a pension under the
Act of June 27, 1890 for Civil War veterans.

        [ In the 1957 article Dale wrote that Charles and Mary Ellen moved from the Indian Territory
         (now Oklahoma) to the Texas Panhandle in 1885. W. H. Hill and Sam and Margaret Wilder
         apparently accompanied them. Dale was born to them in a dugout at the the head of Second
         Creek in Lipscomb County, Texas in 1889. Grace was born in Timms City in 1893. A few
        years after his step-brother and sister were born Wil was roaming the West with the trail herds ]

       Margaret Bevans-Fox-Wilder died between 1890 and 1898 and was initially buried in Timms City, Texas.
Her remains were later reburied in Lipscomb, Texas. The grave marker lists Harriet Wilder (Sam's 1st wife) and
Margaret with only the dates for Harriet. The cemetary custodians stated that things had gotten a little mixed up
when they moved the caskets from Timms City.

        [ In 1901 Wil Hill (age 26) and his new wife Bessie settled on 2 ½ sections of land on
        Wolf Creek, 4 miles out of Lipscomb, TX. ]

       In 1902 the Wilders, Wil Hill and Bessie, and son Charlie moved from Texas to Montana. C. G. Wilder
and Mary Ellen (Wil's mother), Dale, and Grace were accompanied by Sam Wilder and two Texas cowboys,
George Weaver and Sam Rice (who married Bessie's sister, Grace Guenther).

        [ The original settlement of C. G. wilder in Montana was the Clark Tozier ranch at the mouth of
         Sunday Creek. They arrived in July of 1902 with a herd of 800-900 head of cattle and a string
        of horses that were shipped from Texas. He later owned and ran a meat market in Miles City with
        Mr. Butler (Butler’s Meats) and eventually bought a ranch in the Kinsey Valley near Miles City. ]

      In April of 1907 Charles G. Wilder appeared in court in Miles City, MT to have himself declared the
guardian for his father, S. S. Wilder, who he then had committed to the State Mental Hospital in Warm Springs,
Montana due to senility. Sam remained in Warm Springs until his death on Nov 22, 1916 and Sam was buried at
Warm Springs.

        * According to W.H. Hill, Sam fought in the Civil War. One of the Wilders (possibly Sam)
          had observed the battle of the Monitor and Merrimac while guarding the cotton dumps.

Research Already Performed by Wilders

 o Birth record of Sam Wilder - Genesee Co. Hist. Soc. stated birth dates weren‟t recorded that early in Rochester.

 o Sam's father may have served in the War of 1812, but inquiries under last name of Wilder were not fruitful.

 o Birth record of C.G. Wilder - no record in Girard, Mich. or county seats in the surrounding area.

 o Birth record of Mary Ellen Fox - no record at Morning Sun, Iowa

 o Marriage of Mary Ellen to C. G. Wilder - no record at Medicine Lodge, Kan, Burlington, Iowa or nearby counties.

                                       WILLIAM H. HILL FAMILY
1875        William Henry Hill was born in Morning Sun, Iowa

1877-78 John William left Mary and Wil

1880    Will's mother, Mary Ellen Fox-Hill remarried to C.G. Wilder, her step-brother, in Medicine Lodge, Kansas. Will was
          raised by his mother and stepfather and attended school to the fourth grade.

1885        The Wilder family moved to Texas when Will was 10 (via Oklahoma?).

1889    Dale Wilder was born in a dugout at the head of Second Creek in Libscomb Co. Texas. The Wilders worked on the trail
          herds that were being driven from Texas to Miles City, which was a major railhead at the time, and eventually get a
          small herd of their own. Will recalled a story of a drover who overslept. It was fall and the trail boss poured a bucket
          of ice water on him to wake him up.

1892    Bessie's mother, Mary Ellen Guenther, died. Her father had twelve children so some of them were "farmed out" to other

1893 ? Bessie came to the Wilder's (around age 12) and was raised by them with Dale and Grace. Will (then 18) was working
         as a trailhand.

1894        From a note by Will in his own hand:
        "       In 1894 I worked for the Box T Cattle Co. owned by Paddy Doyle. The ranch was located about 10 miles NW of
              Higgins Texas. Paddy wore a diamond ring with a diamond the size of my thumbnail. I cooked for his crew of about
              10 men. One day I sent Irish lad to town for groceries. The lad got drunk and galloped the team back to the ranch.
              The flour and other things were scattered all the bottom of the wagon & all mixed up. Doyle was a kind man and got
              a kick out of such antics.
             It was at this time that I dressed up & went into Higgins to have my picture taken"
              * (Box T was written as the brand - capital T inside a box).

1895    Dale Wilder began school at 5 and continued through high school and later, to school in Oregon where he met his wife.

1901 - Will (25) and Bessie Guenther (19) were married in Lipscomb County, Texas by "an itinerant minister", Rev. Bentley,
        who chewed tobacco and could spit on a fly 10 feet away. Will had applied for and gotten 2.5 sections of Capitol
        Syndicate lands that bordered on Wolf Creek, 4 miles from Lipscomb, and Charlie was born there.

                                               Chronology (Cont.)
1902 - Based on what Will said about the open range country he had seen, and on the information in the Yellowstone Journal
         from Miles City, C.G. Wilder moved his family to Montana. They trailed the herd, 800 to 900 head plus a string of
         horses, to Higgins, TX and then shipped them by train to Billings along with family belongings. Two Texas
         cowboys, George Weaver and Sam Rice (Will's cousin) and Sam Wilder (C.G Wilder's father), accompanied them to
         Montana. Mary Ellen, Bessie and Charlie (1 yr old), and Aunt Belle Rice arrived about a week later.

1902 - C.G. bought the Clark Tozier ranch at the mouth of Sunday Creek. While driving the herd from Billings to the ranch in
         May a severe storm scattered the herd but losses, fortunately, were light compared to the devastation suffered by the
         Billings terminal. The herd arrived at Sunday Creek on July 2nd.

         Mr. Guenther and Jack Struger, husband of grandmother Wilder's sister Belle, operated
             a ferry on the Yellowstone near there.

1902 - Will (at age 27) and his family moved to the Kinsey valley, near Miles City, Montana.

1905 - Daughter Alma born in Miles City, Montana

  ?   - Moved to Oregon by railroad. Shipped cattle to Heppner, Ore. Worked as a horse merchant and drove a string team in
          Heppner hauling wool wagons.

1908 - Son, Earl E. Sr., was born in Heppner, Oregon

  ?   - Will and family returned to a dry-land ranch/farm on the south side of the Yellowstone River about five miles east of
          Tussler and fourteen miles east of Miles City.

1911 - Ruth Irene born in Miles City. Ruth Faye is on birth certificate.

1912 - Edson Harold born in Miles City.

194_? - After his son Charley was divorced, Esther and the three children, Mary, Eddie, and Dorothy lived at the farm and
          helped work it.

1948? - Esther and children moved to Miles City so Eddie, Mary, & Dorothy can attend school in town. They initially lived in
          a Pullman railroad car and a house was later built out of railroad timbers. Esther was still there in 1988.

196_ - Bessie had a stroke that paralyzed her and left her mentally impaired. William moved to Alma and Eric's home near
         Bozeman. Bessie died in 1962 and Will moved back to Miles City. He passed part of his time working on moss

                                          RECOLLECTIONS - by Jim Hill
         Grandfather (Will) was a genuine character of the "Old West". He had a hundred tales of his experiences and loved to
spin yarns. His sense of humor was a bit grisly sometimes, but that was probably typical of those of his time.

         To those of us who were city-raised, he had a utilitarian attitude towards animals. There were always several dogs on
the farm, and usually cats, but they were not treated as pets for the most part. They had to earn their keep by keeping the rats,
snakes, and gophers under control. One little terrier, Tiny, was allowed to sleep behind the woodstove, but generally the animals
stayed outside.

         Bessie was a real pioneer farm woman and was able to coax a surprising variety of vegetables out of the plot of ground
that was allocated as her garden. She raised enough watermelons and cantelopes to sell in town, along with the eggs from "her"
chickens. She was also a wonderful cook and canned enough to serve most of their needs. I remember best her pickled beets,
home-made catsup, pickle-relish and mincemeat. The filled jars were stored in their root cellar, along with the longer lasting
vegetables like potatoes and sometimes apples.

          They never had running water while I can remember, so all the water they used in the house was hauled from a well in
a gully about a quarter mile away, using a horse drawn skid. Eric Wilson finally rigged up a windmill, generator, and battery that
could run a few lights. The shop had a coal-fired forge and was surrounded by old equipment, including a gold-dredge, and piles
of agates they had collected.

         William had a perfect set of teeth, except for a front tooth that was chipped in an accident. He was excavating using a
slip when the front edge of the bucket caught on a rock and the Johnson bar (handle) came up and hit him in the face. He always
used to gnaw on bones after dinner.

          Like many farm people in the west he had tried a lot of different occupations, with varying success. He worked on a
couple of the early highway and railway construction jobs in Montana, while they were still using horse drawn equipment; he
tried dredging for gold and platinum; worked excavating coal; raised cattle, occasionally pigs, and grew corn, popcorn, beans,
and alfafa. He also had been a trapper for the government and had a picture of himself with "the biggest gray wolf that you'll ever
see". It draped to the ground on both sides of the horse and the skin was sent to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C..

       An ancient truck was used to go to town and a caterpillar tractor sometimes ran well enough to haul the water sledge and
plow. He usually had a saddle horse or two and some mules. õÕWɯ9•»Rø4ª•_
