Hill, Charles A., who died at his home south of Oneida Castle, January 2, 1895, in the sixty fifth year of his
age, was a resident for many years of this vicinity, and known as a man of sterling integrity and a Christian gentleman.
He was born in Western, Oneida county, N. Y., January 12, 1830, a son of David and Laura (Turner) Hill. Both his
father and his grandfather (the latter one of the earliest settlers) were natives of Western and farmers. Mr. Hill
was educated in the district schools, and at an early age learned the carpenters' trade, which he followed some
years. For seventeen years he was engaged in the manufacture of cheese at the Hill Cheese Factory near Oneida Castle.
In 1884 he bought the farm of forty acres just south of Oneida Castle, where he resided until his death. Mr. Hill
was a man well fitted to gain the confidence and esteem of all with whom he came in contact, and frequently held
positions of public trust. He was for some years a member and a trustee of the Cochran Memorial Presbyterian Church
at Oneida Castle. He married July 2, 1850, Miss Achsah Paddock, daughter of Peter Paddock of the town of Western,
Oneida county, N. Y. One daughter was born to them, Mrs. John W. Lewis.
