Asa C Hill

Asa C Hill is buried at Millsville Cemetery in Shelby, NY. The cemetery is on the east side of East Shelby Road and Asa Hill is buried about four rows from the front.
Mr. Hill was born in Massachusetts in August 1837 and moved to Shelby, NY, with his family when he was young. He enlisted with Company D on November 28, 1861 as a Private. He remained in this rank until January 14, 1863, at which time he was discharged for disability at Central Park Hospital in New York City. Details of his dicharge are unknown.
He is buried along with his wife, Kate, his son, Asa B and his grandson, Floyd. Of the monuments which have been visited to date, Mr Hill has one of the most amazing monuments of any man of the 28th NY.
