Charles A. Hill was born in Chenango county. N. Y., August 27, 1831. and died at his home in Tionesta, Pa., April 17 liill, having reached the age of 7!) years, 7 months and 20 days. In 1843 his parents moved from New York state to Tidioute, ho coming with them but located in Hickory township where he had secured employment in the lumber woods, The same year he was united in marriage with Mary J., daughter of Wil liam and Nancy (Gates) Wolcott, one of the early settlers of this county. To them were born nine children, six of whom, Mrs. Peter Lindal, of Sherman, N. Y., Truman L., of Hickory township, Perry C, Mrs. James Butler, Mrs. J. A. Adams, and Mrs. Urban Mong, of Tio nesta, survive to comfort their aged mother. Also twoidopted children, S. W. Farmer, of Thjjute, and Mrs, Ger trude Mong, of Fairport, Olff. Mr. Hill was a man of more than or Jmary ability and from his youth was grAtly interest ed in the problems which concerned the prosperity of the nation. It is not sur prising then that while he had been mar ried for fourteen years and had a family dependent upon him, and a borne that was exceptionally pleasant, ho respond ed to the call of the President and en listed on August 11, 1802, in Company U, Slird Regiment, Pennsylvania Volun teers, and with his loyal and patriotio soul stirred with tho conditions of the time, made a most brave and faithful soldier, participating in the battles of Fredericksburg, Chnncellorsville and the Wilderness, in this last battle his right hand was shattered by a rebel bullet and on account of this wound he was honor ably discharged after two and one-half years of service. In his military life he sustained the proud record of the Hill family, his father having been a soldier in the War of 1812 and faithfully served the Government during that struggle, lie was a charter member of Captain Geo. Stow Post, No. 274, of the G. A. R. serving as its commander for many years. After he returned home he worked for some time at his trade, that of a black smith, and in 1SU0 joined the tide that was sweeping toward the western states and for the next seven years was a resi dent of Lodi, Wisconsin. The memories of the old aud familiar scenes in Pennsyl vania made him dissatisfied with the west, and with his family he returned to this vicinity and purchased the farm formerly owned by his father-in-law, now the property of the County, and continu ed to reside there until about seventeen years ago when he disposed of it and purchased a home in Tionesta. While living on the farm he filled with great acceptability a number of local offices in the township and in 1881 was elected an Associate Judge of the county. While filling this position he had the oppor tunity of emphasizing the temperance principles which he had espoused years before, and no license was granted by his voice while he was on the bench. In his home life he was an ideal husband and father, and the children who mourn his death, can not fail to be comforted by the precious memories of his kindness to each and all. He was a man of re fined sensibilities, the coarse and impure word had no place in his vocabulary, and his soul was often filled with righteous indignation at the estimate of life held by too muny, lie had the privilege ol being raised in a christian homo, his father, Frederick Hill, being a devoted member of tho Frco Will Baptist Church and one of his brothers was a minister in that denomination. In 1849, Rev. Smith, a clergyman of that faith, was holding a meeting in Hast Hickory, and Mr. Hill was converted and united with that church, but afterwards withdrew from that organization. A few years later he united with the Methodist Epis copal church and since 1878 has been an ollicial in the sumo. For many years he held an exhorters license and held meet ings in several places with pleasure and profit to his hearers. Ho was loyal to the church of his choice and the pastor could always rely upon his presence and support, ho was especially gifted in pray er and those who knew him best will al ways remember with satisfaction tho petitions he offered in the public congre gation. At the time of his death he was filling the position of Court Crier, having -been appointed to this office scvcrul years ago. For the past seven years he has not been in good health, but with the exception of an occasional attack of accute kidney trouble, he baa been ablo to be on the street almost every day and when he was taken sick last V ednesday it was hoped that lie would soon rally and be ablo to attend to bis duties, but he steadily failed and on Monday morning his spirit left his weary body ns gently as the dow rises from the petals of the June rose. Besido his widow and children he is survived by one brother, Gcorgo T., of Ostrandcr, Washington, fourteen grand-children and eleven grentgrand-childreu. Funer al services will bo held at his late homo this Wednesday at 2 p. m., with inter ment in the Mt. Collins cemetery, Rev. W. O. Calhoun oliiciating.
