Henry Hill papers
Hill, Henry, b.1795
The letters in the Hill collection were written by Henry Hill to his daughter, Mary (Hill) Leake, between 1872 and 1873, in a conscious effort to document his life.
Starting with reminiscences of his family's move from Saybrook, Conn., to Newburgh, N.Y., in 1784, the letters chronicle Hill's recollections up to 1871.
