The Hill Family History

Anthony Hill, of English descent, was born in Holland, and came from there to America about r72o. He settled in New York City, became a freeholder and removed to Fox Meadows, now a part of Scarsdale, Westchester County, N.Y. April 7, 1726, he,with others, conveyed to Thomas Thong a lot in the north ward of the City of New York. In the deed he is described as of Fox Meadows. As early as 1726 he became a freeholder at Fox Meadows. January 8, 1727, he purchased from Samuel Drake, of Fox Meadows, "a tract or parcel of land lying, being situate in ye County of Westchester near ye head of Hutchinson River, containing twenty-one acres, bounded as followeth, beginning on ye southwest corner of Samuel Drake's land, thence running northwesterly by ye land of Anthony Hills to Brunks River, thence along said river easterly twenty-one rods to a white oak stake with stones around it, thence running southeasterly a straight line through ye land of said Samuel Drake's until ye southeast corner bounds bears in a line twenty-one rods from ye first mentioned bounds, and from thence running westerly 216ft* ye White Plains road to ye first mentioned bounds twenty-one rods, and ye bounds on ye southeast corner is a small white oak saplin marked, and further ye first bounds herein mentioned is ye first bounds of ye land herein sold to Anthony Hill." (Liber F. 352 Westchester County Deeds, March 24, r73o.)

About 1744, while living at Fox Meadows, he purchased from the Indians some lands near what afterwards became known as Red Mills, Dutchess County, and now known as Mahopac Falls, in the town of Carmel, Putnam County, N.Y. In 1749 Anthony Hill bought and sold lands at Brown's Point, now a part of the town of Harrison, Westchester County, N.Y. Two of the sons of Anthony Hill, William and Uriah, removed to the lands purchased by their father of the Indians.

About 1726 Anthony married Nancy Ward. He died intestate, at Fox Meadows, in the winter of 1759-6o. February 12, 1760, letters of administration were issued by James De Lancey, Lieutenant Governor of the Province of New York, to Mary Hill, widow of Anthony Hill, farmer, late of the County of Westchester, deceased. After the death of her husband Mrs. Hill removed to Red Mills, where she made her home with her son William, dying at the age of 93 years.

  1. William, born 1726; died at Red Mills, August, 1786.

William Hill, son of Anthony and Mary (Ward) Hill, settled at Red Mills, on lands purchased by his father of the Indians. He brought with him from Fox Meadows a colt. One day it strayed away and while looking for it in the evening, he was attacked by a pack of wolves, and obliged to seek refuge in a tree, where he remained all night. Early the next morning, wwhile returning by circuitous route to his log cabin, he came to the log cabin of Ge'rge Hughson, the first white settler of that part of the country. The Hughson cabin was on the ridge north of Lake Mahopac.

Mr. Hill was a farmer and large land owner. September 25, 1763, he purchased farm No. 36, in Lot No. 5, containing 245 acres of Colonel Roger andMary (Philipse) Morris. This was the first tract of land sold in Putnam (then part of Dutchess) County by the Philipse family, the original patentees. This farm was subsequently divided by Mr. Hill among his four sons. The house in which he lived was torn down in 1843. It stood a little north of the Hill family burying ground.

In colonial days William Hill was a lieutenant in the local militia and afterwards a captain. He married Bethiah, daughter of Abraham Smith, of what is now known as Putnam Valley, Putnam County, N.Y. She was born in 1738, and died at Red Mills in August, 1798. Both are buried in the Hill family burying ground, at Red Mills, N.Y.

By it he gave his wife sixty pounds, his negro man Mink and the use of one quarter of his homestead farm. He mentions in his will his sons Noah, William, Cornelius and Abraham, and his daughters Phebe Heroy, Mary Rhodes, Chloe Crane and Jane Lounsberry. The witnesses to will were Jonathan Stokum and Jonathan Whiting, both of whom were writers and lived near Red Mills. The latter died January 14, 1787.

May 30, 1764, he executed a power of attorney to his brothers William and Andrew, authorizing them to sell his stock of furs, skins and feathers, in Albany County, valued at 6oo pounds, and his real estate in Bergen County, (Liber C, 358, Bergen Co. Deeds). Uriah having died about 1264, his son Anthony, June 1774, conveyed his interest in the real estate to Stephen Case, later of New Marlborough, N. Y. In 1784 Uriah was a constable in South Precinct, Dutchess Co., N.Y. May 4, 1765, letters of administration were issued to Andrew Hill, farmer of Westchester, upon estate of his brother Uriah, late of said county, deceased, (N. Y. Sur. office).

The old homestead of the Hill family, which has ever borne the name of the "Hill Farm," has an especial interest from the fact that it was the first piece of land ever sold in Putnam County. In the deed of marriage settlement given by Mary Philipse and Roger Morris January 14th, 1758, the power was reserved to sell sufficient land to amount to the sum of $3,000. It was in accordance with this reservation that Roger Morris and his wife Mary sold to William Hill, September 25th, 1763, the farm which is thus described in the deed:

"All that certain farm: known as farm Number 36 of Lot No. 5 of the lands formerly granted by Patent to Adolph Philipse, Esq., which said farm begins at a hickory sapling, being the north corner to lots No. 35 and 43, and running south six degrees, 45 minutes east', 16 chains 37 links, thence south 9 degrees 29 chains, and 34 links to the cornerof lot 34, thence south 33 degrees, 30 minutes, west 16 chains 45 links, thence south 33 degrees, 30 minutes west, 11 chains 27 links to the corner of lot number 15, thence south 88 degrees west 33 chains to a beech tree, being the corner to lots 14, 15 and. 37, thence north 7 degrees 30 minutes east 16 chains 59 links to an ash tree, thence north 18 degrees east 9 chains to a maple tree, thence north 41 degrees 30 minutes east, 11 chains 2 links to a red oak tree, then north 23, east 32 chains, 8 links, [o tl red oak tree being the corner of lot No. 39, thence south 6Tdegrees, 15 minutes,

The price paid for this tract was $760, (currrent money of the Province of New York." The mines atrct minerals on this farnm were excepted and reserved. In accordance with the usage in those days a lease of the premises " for one rvhole yeor " wits given to William Hill, ancl the d.eecl was executecl on the follow- ing clay. This was in accordance with the law " for transferring uses into possession," by which a person holding land by a lease for one year was deemed in actual possession. Capt. William Hill divided this farm among four of his sons; the south part, containing 98 acres, he gave to Abraham, whose heirs sold it to Thomas Hill. At the time when Anthony Hoguet and his associates were anxious to buy, Hoguet's Point in Lake Mahopac, of Abijah Smith, he refusef to sell] unless they would buy him this farm in its place. Accordingly, the arrange ment was made, and Thomas Hill sold it to Abijah Smith September 15th, 1.854, and he lived, on it till the time of his death, when it fell to his only child, Sarah, who married Peter B. Curry, 2d. Their only surviving child, Sarah A., married Kelsey Agor, and they are now the owners of this part,of the original "Hill Farm."

The part of the original farm next north of the above was given to Solomon Hill, who sold it to his brothers, Abraham anrl Cornelius, and it is now owned by Cornelius Hill, the grandson of the Cornelius above. This part was 20 acres, and next north was 42 acres, which was given to Noah Hill, who sold it to Thomas Lounsbury. He conveyed it to James Hill, son of Cornelius, and it was sold by his assignees to Cornelius, son of James Hill, who now owns it. To the north of this \4'as A tract of 27 acres given to William Hill. He sold it to Abraham, his brother, who left it to his children. It was purchased by Solomon alrd. Isaac Hill from the other heirs, and they sold to their brother, Thomas, who re-sold it to Solomon, and it was sold by him to Asahel H. Humphreys, December 24bh, 1879, and it now belongs to the Mahopac Iron Company, and the "Hill Mine" is located on it.

At the north end of the original farm was a piece of 10 acres given to Noah Hill to make his part as good as the rest. He conveyed it to his brother, Abraham, who left it to his children, and it was bought by Solomon from the rest of the heirs ancl sold by him to Anthony Stokunr, and it was sold by his a ministrators to William Agor, its present owner. The old house in which Capt. William Hill resided; stood just north off the family burying ground, about 1843, it was torn down. In the family burying ground on this farm are the graves of several generations. Capt. William Hill, the ancestor of the family, died. in August, 1796, aged. 70. His wife, Bethia, died in August, 1798, at, the age of 60. The dates of the deaths of the other members of the family are given above. An elegant monument marks the resting place of the wife Charles S. Hill, Gloriana, who died January 5th, 1884, at the age of forty-four.
