Hiland Hill, Jr.

The Hill family were among the early settlers of the town of Catskill, which later became part of Greene County, New York. Hiland Hill Jr.’s great-uncle and grandfather built houses next door to one another on what later became known as Hill Street. We do not know much about Hiland, except that he owned a store in Catskill and may have been a cashier in the town’s bank.
