As you might know, William B. Lapham's History of Norway (1886) does not identify Josiah's parents, but confirms that his wife was Sally Wagg. He is called "Josiah Hill, Jr." in a deed dated 1812 (p. 23), suggesting that his father was also named Josiah. He died in 1845, at age 80 years (p. 104). His widow, Sarah, was aged 80 years in 1850.
