  • Notes 
    • Richard Hilton - 1828 - November 16, 1896. Son of Peter and Sarah Ann Preston Hilton. Husband of Betsey Bass Hilton. [Note: The November 16th death date is what is listed in Orwell death records, all
      Newspaper Articles contradict that date.]
      Newspaper Article - Wednesday, November 18, 1896 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Orwell - News has just reached this village of the death of Richard Hilton, a well-known farmer living about four miles east of town. Mr. Hilton has suffered with dropsy for about a year or more but was not thought to be in immediate danger. About three weeks since he tried to cut some wood in his woods but was prostrated and help was secured to carry him to the house. He recovered from this sufficiently to walk to Orwell on Election day and cast his ballot but was unable to walk home. He was carried home by his son and has been confined to his bed nearly ever since. Mr. Hilton is survived by a wife, one son, five daughters and several grandchildren.
      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, November 19, 1896 Sandy Creek News - Sandy Creek, New York - Orwell - Richard Hilton, a life- long resident of the town, died Tuesday morning, November 17, aged sixty-eight years. He has been in failing health for a year, the disease being dropsy. He leaves a wife and one son, Alonzo, and five daughters, Mrs. Ward Finster, Mrs. Willis Coon, Mrs. Aden Potter and Mrs. Frank Potter. His funeral will be held at his late home Thursday at one p.m. [Transcriber note: Although his obituary says he has five daughters, only four daughters were listed.]
