William Hill Jr. born 1792(son of William Hill Sr. and grandson of Hugh Evans, veteran of Revolutionary War) served in the War of 1812 with his brother-in-law John Duckwall. They served in Capt. G. W. Barrere's Company (Cavalry) from April 30 Apr 1812 until 6 May 1813. Both of these men were listed as privates. This group was one of three Ohio militia regiments captured at Detroit when Revolutionary War veteran General Hull surrendered his force to the British without a counsel of his junior officers. Hull was later court martialed and sentenced to death for treason. He was just an old fool, and not expecially treasonous and was not executed. Some of Hull's command was massacred afterwards by Indians allied with the British. Source Galen Lewis and (Roster of Ohio Soldiers in War of 1812, Page 393, vol 1).
