Original Highland Township Landowner
James L. Hills
James L. Hills was born December 10, 1812, at Yorktown, Westchester County, New York, the son of Amasa and Eunice (Rathburn) Hills. He married Levana _____, born May 2, 1814, and died October 4, 1901. James L. Hills himself died August 8, 1890. Both are buried at Evergreen Cemetery, Corfu, Genesee County, New York. His brother, Hiram A. Hills, was another original Highland Township landowner and prominent early settler. There is no evidence, however, that James L. Hills himself ever lived in Highland.
