Birth: 1759
East Hartford
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Mar. 29, 1810
Berlin
Washington County
Vermont, USA

Note: The 1808 death year on Levi's tombstone is incorrect, since he wrote his will in 1810, and it was proved the same year, which substantiates his death record with the date above.

Levi was the third of ten known children born to Daniel Hills and Mabel Webster of East Hartford, Connecticut, and was baptized at the E. Hartford Congregational Church on 6 May 1759. He was married in East Hartford on 28 March 1782 to Olle Hollister, the daughter of Gideon Hollister of Glastonbury, CT. Levi left Connecticut with his family sometime after January 1796, and was called of Berlin, Vermont on 19 September 1800 when he bought land in Berlin of Eleazer Hubbard. Levi's will, dated 13 March 1810, was proved 3 May following. Following Olle's death, all eight children of Levi and Olle divided their estate under an instrument dated 22 April 1817. The children of Levi and Olle were:

*Giles, b. E. Hartford, CT circa 1783, d. 25 May 1846, and married in Berlin, VT on 3 June 1804 Parmelia HUBBARD. He was still living in Berlin in 1810, but by 1825 he was in Compton, Buckinghamshire, Quebec based on the census of Lower Canada. Sometime thereafter he moved to Coaticook, Quebec, which borders the U.S. state of Vermont, and died there, after which his widow returned to Vermont.

*Levi, b. East Hartford, CT circa 1785, died in Hamilton, Ontario in 1852, and married in Berlin, VT on 30 Aug 1807 Esther EATON.

*Simeon, b. 1787, married Chloe CROSSETT.

*Elizabeth, b. September 1788, married John B. VOSE.

*Sylvester, b. E. Hartford, CT 1789, and married in Berlin on 5 Dec 1816 Lydia STRONG.

*Zerah, b. 12 November 1793, married Patty M. DAVENPORT.

*Gideon, b. 2 November 1795, married Mary LUCE.

*Persis, b. 7 May 1801, married Hosea CROSSETT.
