Member Bob Hill will be our featured speaker. Of all his ancestors, Bob knew the least about his family name - Hill. He didn't get much help form his paternal relatives. With seven brothers and a sister, knowing he couldn't inherit the family farm in County Antrim, Ireland, Bob's great-grandfather left the devastation of the Irish Potato Famine of 1844-1848 and headed for America, where the Civil War was raging and immigrants were forced off the boat to join the Union Army. He eventually became a minister in the Indian/Native American-populated Dakota Territories in the 1870's, right after Custer's Last Stand. This is the story of discovery, with many twists and turns from a farm in County Antrim to his death at the Mayo Clinic.
