The headstone of Asa C. Hill, buried at Millville Cemetery in Shelby, maybe the only local cemetery marker crafted in the likeness of the deceased. A member of the 28th New York Infantry during the Civil War, Hill lost his leg during the Battle of Cedar Mountain, an injury that would have a lasting impact on his life.
