Memorial for Daniel F. HILL (1895)

Hendricks County Civil Order Book Volume 39 (May 1895 - April 1896) includes an entry commemorating the death of lawyer Daniel F. Hill:

"Daniel F. Hill enlisted in the 11th Ind. Vols. for three years, and was mustered into the U.S. service as a sergeant August 31, 1861, and after about two years' service was discharged for disability. On May 18th, 1864, he again enlisted and was mustered into the 132 Ind. Vols. as adjutant for one hundred days, and was honorably discharged on expiration of term of enlistment. He again entered the military service February 21, 1865, for twelve months, as captain of Co. G, 148 Ind. Vols., and served in that capacity until September 5th, 1865, when he was mustered out with his company.

Soon after the war he was elected Justice of the Peace, of Middle Township, Hendricks County, Indiana, serving for several years. From Middle Township he moved to Danville, in the year 1889, where he resided until his death, June 9th, 1895. In the year 1872 he was admitted to the bar. While living in Middle Township he was engaged in farming and conducting a store in the village of Pittsboro. In 1892 he was elected prosecuting attorney of this the 55th judicial circuit, and filled the office for the term of two years.

For more than a year he had been a great sufferer. The Bar extends to his family their most sincere sympathy in their bereavement."
