Charles E. Hill is a native of Wisconsin, and was born on the 21st of December, 1854. His father, Alonzo Hill, is a native of Vermont, and his mother, Caroline Hill, nee Rhimes, was born in the State of New York.
Mr. Hill came to Daviess county and has long made his home in Pattonsburg, and is one who by his uprightness and integrity, perseverance and industry, has won for himself an honorable place among his fellow-citizens, and that, too, almost by his own unaided exertions. He does not court popularity but wins it by honest toil and deserving merit, and as an evidence of the esteem in which he is held by the people of his township, may be mentioned the fact that he at present holds the offices of township clerk and assessor, and city clerk and attorney of Pattonsburg. He is one of the rising young men of Benton township.
