Note: He is evidently a descendant of John Hill of Dorchester Mass. (born 1602, Chard England). The name at some point was Hills. I have dif. dates for his birth year. .One(possibly from Hill Family Bible) gives 1763/4, another (from a census record) says he was 73 in 1860 (at factory Pt. Vermont) with wife Clarrissa, although the lettering is unclear. Since it seems established that he was married in 1799 he must have been at least 18 at that time so in 1860 he had to be 78 plus years of age, but the record which gives DOB as 1764 is probably exagerated..I found some records that give his birth as abt. 1772, which seems best. He was married at age 27 and died in 1863 at age 91. His father evidently was Shadrack Hill..In a family history Shadracks son Jabez is said to have lived to 1863 and since there were few Jabez Hills of his generation that lived until 1863 it seems clear that the identity is correct. He was named after his grandfather.
