My Grandfather was born
(1849), lived and worked in Canton. He was a salesman and sold Sewing
Machines, Musical instruments and a washing machine or two. His Name
was Theodore Lionel Hill and was married to Isabel Prince Denmark.
The house that they lived in was built by Jesse Denmark's father.
The Denmark's are from the El Mira New York area.
My Great Grandfather was named Osborn Hill
and was married to Harriet Barrett. Osborns' father was James D.
Hill and wife was Lucy (unknown) born in Utah. My mother and all
of her siblings were born in Canton and up until 1943, Grandfathers' sister,
Florence lived in Canton. I have my Grandfathers' wallet which contains
a number of sales slips, contracts, etc. dating from 1891 through 1908.
The family moved to California probably about 1910. My Great Grandfathers'
Sister, Christine Hill, married Tracy O. Hollis. Hollis is the only name
that I can locate in the Bradford County history. There is a mention
of James D. Hill being a Deacon. I hesitate to load you with all
of this trivia and I am not requesting that you try to untangle or locate
any of these people. I thought that it was one more bit of info that could
be tucked away in the historical records.
