    • A short biography of Benjamin Hill was published in Pioneer History of Clarksfield by Dr. F. E. Weeks (1908, p. 73). The biography went as follows:

      Benjamin Hill was a son of Isaac Hill, of Wakeman, and had six brothers and seven sisters. He was born in 1796. The family came from Connecticut to Portage County, Ohio, at an early day. Mr. Hill was married there to Mary Shanks in 1820. Soon after 1825 (the year is uncertain) he came to Clarksfield. He bought 20 acres of Smith Starr in 1829, on top of the hill east of the Hollow, on the north side of the road, where Charles Harris now lives. He was a blacksmith by trade and had a shop at this place. He paid for this farm $75. His price for shoeing horses was eight cents a shoe. He used to burn charcoal to use on his forge. In 1828 he married Julia Stevens of Fitchville. His children were Jonathan, Hoyt, Alvin and Alfred. All are dead except Alvin, who live in Monroeville, O. In 1844 Mr. Hill sold to Martin Pulver and bought Albert Seger’s place, east of the Hamlin corners, where Charles Phillips now lives. In 1862 he moved to Fairfield township, where the wife died in 1875 and he in 1876.
