Birth: May 6, 1844
Rush County
Indiana, USA
Death: Jul. 24, 1927
Arapahoe
Furnas County
Nebraska, USA

Husband of Marietta Caldwell Hill; father of Edgar, Rena, Roy, Florence & Orpha Hill.

He volunteered in the 9th Indiana cavalry, Company E, Army of the Cumberland, was captured at the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee (Aug. 1864) and taken to Andersonville Prison, where he stayed for six months. He was honorably discharged at the end of the Civil War on July 6, 1865.

Andersonville, or Camp Sumter as it was officially known, was one of the largest of many Confederate military prisons established during the Civil War. It was built early in 1864 after Confederate officials decided to move the large number of Federal prisoners kept in and around Richmond, Virginia, to a place of greater security and a more abundant food supply. During the 14 months the prison existed, more than 45,000 Union soldiers were confined here. Of these, almost 13,000 died from disease, poor sanitation, malnutrition, overcrowding, or exposure to the elements.
