ANCESTRY OF THE FAMILY OF Zaccheus and Susan L. (Whipple) Hill:
Zaccheus was twelve years of age, and went to reside with his kinsman, John Hill of Boston, who, with his brother Thomas, were distillers, and prominent in business and social life. Later, John retired, leaving Thomas to carry on the business, while he dealt largely in real estate. In 1734, he bought 173 acres of land in Newtown, now Newton ville, of Wm. Ward, and Zaccheus went there to reside. November 6, 1735, he married Mary Squier of Newtown. Unfortunately the early records were burned in 1770, so that dates of births of elder children born in Newtown can not be obtained.
Thomas Hill, a prosperous and thrifty Scotchman, moved to the north of Ireland, where he married. Owing to the oppression of the crown, which caused such large emigrations to America of the Scotch- Irish in the early part of the last century, his five sons came to America about 1720. These sons were JAMES, John, William, Zaccheus, and Robert. . . .
Zaccheus removed to Ashford to reside. December 4, 1752, Zaccheus Hill was elected highway- surveyor, and was a grandjuror in 1756. . . .
Thomas, in 1766, with others, bought a tract of land in Vermont. In 1777, he was living in Bromley (afterward Peru). In 1780, he bought land in Manchester, where he lived, after selling his Bromley property in 1782. He was a private in the Continental service, being called out in 1781 and again in 1782.
