While working in his wheelwright shop in Alstead, N. H., he was suffering from
a sore corn, and decided to try his hand at surgery; so placing his foot on a block,
h e held a sharp chisel upon the troublesome toe and gave it a smart clip with
his "hammer and was instantly minus that member of his body. He wrapped a
bit of cloth around his bleeding foot, remarking that he guessed that corn would
not trouble him any more, and went about his work. The result of this was so
successful that he tried the experiment upon another corn, took cold, and came
near terminating his life. Five children. See 4th generation.

William and Alargaret (Myers) Hiller. He d. Aug. 12, 185 1; liis wife, Mar.
7, 1851. Ten children, named as follows:

I. Harriet M. Hiller, b. in Jefferson, Greene Co., Pa., July 23, 1823;
m. Nov. 15, 1842, Samuel Spruance. By his death she was a widow
in Alton, 111., in 1S56, with three children. She d. at Vernon, Ind.,
Jan. 7, 1893.
n. John M. Hiller, b. in Jeff'erson, Greene Co., Pa., Apr. 10, 1825; d.
unm. in Vernon, Ind., in 189 . Before the war he was a successful
merchant. He ser\'ed his country throughout the entire war as a cav-
alry officer in Missouri — lieutenant and captain. Being without a



244 MILLIKE NS OF WILTON AND SHARON, N. H.

family of his own, he took special interest in the education of the
children of his blind brother, Royal. Capt. Hiller possessed a taste
for literature and wrote much, in creditable verse. We subjoin a single
characteristic stanza from his pen:

" But why complain of things beyond our power?
We cannot storm the barricades of Fate,
Let Patience fringe with gold each murky hour,
And blaze the way that leads to Wisdom's Gate."

III. James H. Hiller, b. in Jefferson, Greene Co., Pa., May, 1827; m.
1858, Rebecca Reynolds in said town. He was the only one of the
six Hiller brothers who did not serve in the Union Army, and he d.
suddenly of apoplexy at Hannibal, Mo., while on his way to a recruit-
ing office (for the purpose of enlisting), July 8, 1862.

IV. Mahgaret Hiller, b. in Jefferson, Greene Co., Pa., June 10, 182Q,
m. Oct. II, 1852, Nehemiah Richardson, M.D. They resided in
Vernon, Ind., where she d. He d. Two children.

V. William Hiller, b. in Jefferson, Greene Co., Pa., Feb. 5, 1832; m.
Sept. 30, 1857, Sarah Roseberry. Resided in Kansas City, Mo.
Like his brothers, he was of the same patriotic makeup as the ances-
tral stock from which he sprung, his grandfather Hiller and his great-
grandfather Milliken, both having been Revolutionary soldiers. Like
his brothers, John and Hiram, he was a cavalry officer in the Union
service in Missouri throughout the war, holding a lieutenant's commis-
sion and doing his full share to win for the family the reputation among
the Confederates of being "those d d fighting Hillers."

VI. Hiram M. Hiller, b. in Jefferson, Greene Co., Pa., Apr. 23, 1834;
m. Aug. 27, 1857, Sarah F. Bell of same county, daughter of Levi
H. Bell. Mr. Hiller was successively and successfully printer, editor,
merchant, soldier, lawyer, banker, farmer, and politician. Was one of
the most prominent men of Northern Missouri, and attained a wide
influence in business, military, and political circles. He was one of
the famous 30 Grant delegates in the Chicago Republican Convention
of 1880, who were given the Grant medals. He served in the Union
Army during the entire war and rose to the rank of lieutenant-colonel.
It is a remarkable fact that these five Hiller brothers — typical Union
soldiers — should have seen active service during so long a period and
among the "bushwhackers" of Missouri, and come out of the contest
without serious wounds; and more remarkable still is it, that after pass-
ing safely through so many dangerous experiences Col. Hiller was
destined to be killed by a freight train in his own village and in the
quiet pursuit of the avocations of peace. His useful life was thus
brought to a close at Kahoka, Mo., Aug. 14, 1895. He had issue
nine children, three of whom d. young.

vn. George M. Hiller, b. in Jefferson, Greene Co., Pa., May 14, 1836;
m. Sept. 17, 1868, Mary A. Miller. He shared with his brothers the
honors of faithful service for his country during the war for the Union,
being a corporal in the Missouri Infantry. The family reside at
Kahoka, Mo. No issue.

viii. Amelia Hiller, b. in Jefferson, Greene Co., Pa., Apr. 30, 1838; m.
Aug. 13, 1863, John E. Stafford, son of William and Charlotte
