Biography of Asa C. Hill
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Hill, Asa C., son of William and Clarissa Miller Hill, was born on the homestead farm of his parents, two miles south of Medina, in the township of Shelby, August 19, 1837, which place he made his home during his life. He enlisted November 14, 1861, in Co. D, 28th N. Y. Volunteers, and served bravely as a soldier until January 14, 1863, when he received his discharge, on account of the loss of a limb, caused by a wound received in the battle at Cedar Mountain, Va., August 9, 1SU2, at which time he was captured and taken to Libby prison. He was exchanged October 6, 1862, at Harrison's Landiug, after which he was confined in a hospital until his final discharge. Soon after his return home from the war, he united with the Shelby Center Baptist church of which he remained a faithful member until death (April 25, 1881) relieved him of great sufferings which he bore patiently and cheerfully until the end, without a regret for the sacrifice he had made for his country, ready to pass over the line, and join that great army whose wounds and scars have all been healed by Him who is able to lead the world on to victory. In 1878 he married Catharine, daughter of Peter and Susan (Le Foy) Bodine, late of Clinton, N. J. To them was born one son, Asa Bodine Hill, who, with the widowed mother still occupies the old homestead, July, 1894.
