Miscellaneous: Asa and Sarah were from two different Hill Clans. In all, they had a total of 10 children including: Sarah, Asa Jr., Olive (#132), Sarah, Martha, Daniel, Eleazer, Sarah, Tabitha, and Moses. As was common at that time, when a child died, the next child of that sex to be born was given the same name. Thus, there were three different daughters in this family named Sarah. All of the children were born in Sherborn, Middlesex, Massachusetts except Moses. By the time Moses was born, the family was living in the nearby town of Holliston, Massachusetts.

Over his long lifetime, Asa experienced many challenges including: the early death of two daughters, sickness that killed many neighbors and caused him to move his family to a different county, two fires that destroyed two different homes, enlisting twice during the French and Indian War and being wounded by cannon fire, the stress resulting from having three sons and three sons-in-law serve with the Patriots in the Revolutionary War, and having a declined mental condition near the end of his life.
