^f>-' PREFACE.



'' I ^HE notes of the different lines here given
^ were mainly collected as data for admission
into the patriotic hereditary societies, and no at-
tempt has been made to trace the families beyond
the confines of America.

To account for meagre information on some
lines, it is only necessary to mention a few of the
""■^^;\ difficulties met on the Hill line: The Newtown
(Mass.) records were all destroyed by fire in 1770;
those of Montgomery County (N.Y.) in 1840; and
Bennington records, the county-seat for Peru, for-
merly Bromley (Vt.), were also burned; while in
Ashford (Conn.), previous to 1780, there is only
a partial list of births, marriages, and deaths.

HILL.

Thomas Hill, a prosperous and thrifty Scotchman,
moved to the north of Ireland, where he married. Owing
to the oppression of the crown, which caused such large
emigrations to America of the Scotch- Irish in the early-
part of the last century, his five sons came to America
about 1720. These sons were J AMES, John, William,
Zaccheus, and Robert.

-}-(i) Zaccheus was twelve years of age, and went to
reside with his kinsman, John Hill of Boston, who, with
his brother Thomas, were distillers, and prominent in
business and social life. Later, John retired, leaving
Thomas to carry on the business, while he dealt largely
in real estate. In 1734, he bought 173 acres of land in
Newtown, now Newton ville, of Wm. Ward, and Zaccheus
went there to reside. November 6, 1735, he married
Mary Squier of Newtown. Unfortunately the early rec-
ords were burned in 1770, so that dates of births of elder
children born in Newtown can not be obtained.

July 16, 1720, Benjamin White, tanner, of Boston,
deeded to John HiU, distiller, 280 acres of land in the
extreme north of Ashford, Connecticut. In 1742, John
Hill and Elizabeth, his wife, deeded to Zaccheus Hill this
same land, and later, Zaccheus removed to Ashford to
reside. December 4, 1752, Zaccheus Hill was elected
highway- surveyor, and was a grand -juror in 1756. In
1764, the Church of Westford was set off from Ashford,
and they began the erection of a church -edifice. Rev.
Ebenezer Martin was the first pastor of the church, and
he was called at a meeting held February 5, 1768. Thomas
Chapman was moderator and deacon. June 14, 1770, the
exterior of the new meeting-house was finished. There
were to be twenty pews, and each pew was to be occupied
2



10

by two families. Forty inhabitants, the highest on the
list were to draw said pews according to said lists, build
the pews, and ceil up to the gallery-girths. Among the
pew-spots distributed were:

No. I. Benjamin Walker and Elijah Whiton.

" 3. Thomas Chapman and Ebenezer Walker, sr.

" 4. Joseph Woodward and Zaccheus Hill.

" 5. Ezra Smith and Ebenezer Walker, jr.

" 13. Samuel Eastman and Henry Works.

" 16. Jas. Ould and Stephen Coye.

Among later arrivals in this church were Stephen Nott
and Dr. Thomas Huntington.

Zaccheus Hill died in 1776, and the following are the
records of the probate court:

Children of Zaccheus (i) and Mary (Squier) Hill:

2. 1. Mary, married David Spencer at Windham, Conn.,
June 1 6, 1762. David Spencer was a corporal in Capt.
Willcy's company in the Lexington Alarm; sergeant in
Capt. Spencer's company, 2d Regiment, and a lieutenant
under Col. Wells in the Connecticut Line. In all, served
five years.

3. II. Deliverance, single in 1777, and at that time
living in Windham.

4. III. Elizabeth, single in 1777; lived in Norwich.

5. IV. Sarah, married Amasa Coye of Union, Febru-
ary 10, 1774. He served in the Lexington Alarm under
Capt. Lawson, and died November 6, 1776.

6. V. Anna, single in 1777; lived in Ashford.

7. VI. Louise, married Benjamin Chapman of Ashford,
August 27, 1772. He served five months, in 1780, in the
8th Conn. Regiment.

8. Vll. Abigail, married Peter Eastman of Ashford,
October 17, 1762. He was a drummer in Capt. Knowlton's
company in the Lexington Alarm, from Ashford ; sergeant
in Capt. Brackett's company, 5th Battalion, serving in
New- York City and Long Island, in Washington's army,
and in 1777 under Gen. Gates, "to the Northward."

9. VIII. Thomas, in 1766, with others, bought a tract of
land in Vermont. In 1777, he was hving in Bromley
(afterward Peru). In 1780, he bought land in Manchester,
where he lived, after selling his Bromley property in 1782.
He was a private in the Continental service, being called
out in 1 78 1 and again in 1782.

-I- 10. IX. Squier, born in Ashford, Conn., Aug. 14, 1747;
died in Canajoharie, N.Y., November 17, 1826. He mar-
ried Dorothy Walker, at Ashford, October 25, 1770. He
was elected "Trying Man" in 1771; September 6, 1774, he



15

was one of a committee of the "Sons of Liberty" who
waited on the Rev. Samuel Peters, a clergyman of the
Church of England, who had "insulted the grand cause
of Liberty by calling it Rebellion." Mr. Peters, a few
days later, thought best to retire to Boston, and in Novem-
ber sailed for England.

April 20, 1775, the news of the battle of Lexington
reached Windham County. The 21st was spent in active
preparations, and April 22 over 1000 volunteers assembled
at Pomfret It was resolved to take only one-fifth of the
assembled troops. The whole Ashford company was
chosen to go, but a great number of volunteers from other
towns were sent home. Ashford's picked company of
seventy-eight men, under Capt. Thomas Knowlton, was
esteemed one of the best In the service. Squier Hill was
a sergeant of this company. John Keyes, a lieutenant in
this company, later a captain, and subsequently adjutant-
general of the Connecticut Militia, was a life-long friend
of Squier Hill. This company attracted great attention
on their march by their orderly and soldierly bearing.
They were received at Cambridge with especial distinction
as the first trained troops that had come from abroad to
the aid of Massachusetts.

May I, 1775, he received commission as ensign in the
5th company of the 3d Conn. Regiment, under Col. Israel
Putnam. The night of June i6th, measures were taken
to fortify Bunker's Hill. Of the two hundred Connecticut
troops detailed for special service the night before the
battle, under Capt. Knowlton, one hundred and twenty
were from Putnam's regiment. These were the men who
toiled all night at the famous rail fence, and, aided by the
"Hampshire boys," under Stark, and the Connecticut rein-
forcements, drove back again and again the flower of the
British army. They saved the retreating garrison from
capture and annihilation, as they did not retreat until the
main body had left the field. Later at Cambridge, Knowl-
ton brought his soldiers into more rigid discipline, and



16

they served as a sort of voluntary body-guard to the
commander-in-chief. In July, this regiment was made a
Continental one.

Squier Hill was engaged in throwing up earthworks
the night before the battle, and toward morning threw
himself on the ground and fell asleep. He dreamed that
a British officer was about to kill him. That day he served
behind the fence, and in the first charge beheld the officer
of his dream, "even to the watch fob." He said "he took
as good aim as he ever did at a squirrel, and the officer
fell." When they retired from the field and marched down
the neck, they were assailed by a heavy fire, both from
the shore and the water. There was a hole in a fence
through which his men crawled, but he reflected that it
would be beneath the dignity of an officer to thus escape,
and leisurely climbed the fence. As he went over, a ball
passed through his hat, knocking out the cockade.

On the call of November, 1776, he was first lieutenant
in Capt. Amaziah Wright's company, 3d Battalion, under
Col. Roger Enos. September 9, 1777, he took the oath
of fidelity, also the New Freeman's oath. March i, 1778,
he received a captain's commission in Col. Samuel McLel-
lan's regiment, and in August and September, 1778, served
in Tyler's brigade, under Sullivan, in Rhode Island. This
regiment was enlisted for duty in the Northern Depart-
ment, but were detailed instead to recapture Newport.
The expedition was a failure, through lack of cooperation
of the French fleet.

The officers of Putnam's first regiment, the Connecticut
Third of 1775, who had sallied out at the first cry from
Lexington, served through the war. All were ready to
do their part, and share in the sufferings and sacrifices;
they had pledged "their lives, their fortunes, and their
sacred honor" to the patriot cause, and a call was never
made in vain. At the close of the war, the government
was indebted to Capt. Squier Hill ;^4000 in money, as
well as for horses and beef furnished the troops. A por-



17

tion of this was paid in worthless scrip, and he never made
application for the remainder. He, in common with many-
affluent families, were almost reduced to poverty by the
inability of the government to redeem its pledges. To
such unselfish devotion and true patriotism we owe our
national independence.

His home was twice burned by tories, and all of his
papers destroyed. He was obliged, after his return from
the war, to mortgage his farm to his life-long friend, Gen.
Keyes, for "296 Spanish-milled dollars." In 1786, he
repaid this money, when he sold his farm and moved to
Wales, Mass.; thence he removed to Canajoharie, N.Y.
He brought from Connecticut the first single wagon seen
in that town. He lived there until his death, and all the
quarrels of the neighborhood were referred to him for
arbitration. He said that in all the numerous times he
had seen Gen. Washington, he only once knew him to
smile, and that was caused by a letter received from
Lafayette. He was a large man, tall, with blue eyes, and
light-brown hair, and a smiling countenance. After an
illness of three months' duration he died, November 17,
1826. He was a farmer, but, as quaintly expressed, "never
milked a cow," indicating more of the gentleman farmer.



Children of Squier (10) and Dorothy Hill:

11. I. Bethiah, born in Ashford, September 25, 1771;
died January 29, 1842; married, June 26, 1788, to Darius
Rogers of Wales, Mass.

12. II. Mary, born September 14, 1773; died 1813;
married Dayid Utley, who was born 1750, and died Octo-
ber 5, 1827.

-I- 13. III. Zaccheus, born in Ashford, Conn., March 10,
I -j-je, and died in Western, N.Y., Jan. 15,1857. He removed
with his father to Canajoharie, where he lived until his
marriage, October 29, 1797, to Mary, daughter of John



18

and Lydia Hawkins, when he moved to Western, Oneida
County, N.Y. He settled on what is known as Quaker
Hill, and cleared the farm on which he spent the remain-
der of his life. After his marriage, he and his wife joined
the Quakers, and she later became a preacher in thac
denomination. The following Is a letter that appeared in
the Rome Sentinel:

Rome, January 15, 1857.
Mv De/Vr Mr. Comstock:

You will regret to learn that your aged friend, Zacchcus Hill,
the venerable Quaker of Western, is dead. Until a few days he
went in and out among us in his usual health, beloved and
respected by all who knew him. Those who remember Zaccheus
Hill for twenty-five years (and some of your readers remember
him for twice that length of time), will bear you witness that he
was a man of guileless sincerity, who, amid all temptation, set
before others the example of an honest and faithful man. In his
social life he was a man of a warm and hearty temper, full of
mirthfulness, and whose welcome 'how dost thee do?' was always
from the heart. In his political views, he was a man of national
principles, a democrat of the old school, and to him there was
no subject which so touched on the quick of his affections as
the welfare of his country.

He was a devout believer in Divine Revelation, and faithfully
sought to exemplify the moral precepts of Christianity in his life.
He came to Oneida County when it was a wilderness, and with
such men as the late George Brayton, Henry Wager, and David
Brown, was a pioneer, and they lived to see the print of their
toil in the richest agricultural county of New York. The mem-
ory of these men is fast passing away, and it would be well if
our people could be made to cherish the virtues of the men
whose plighted word was as good as the sealed bond.

Yours, M.
