Biography* 1884  (From Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia, H. H. Hardesty and Company Publishers, 1884. Transcribed by Marilyn B. Headley )

JOHN JOSEPH HILEMAN - son of Daniel Hileman and Clarinda D. (Trevey) Hileman, who came from Pennsylvania many years ago, was born in Rockbridge county on the farm once owned by his great grandfather. He chose for his life companion Elizabeth Rachel, daughter of Robert and Rachel E. (Armstrong) McCutchen, of Augusta county. The dates of his birth and marriage are March 5, 1834, and May 24, 1859. His wife lived not quite ten years after their marriage, departing this life December 20, 1868, aged about forty years. Their children Susan C., Willie S, Mary A. and Robert D., were born in 1860, 1863, 1866, and 1868. The first is deceased, the second in Lynchburg, and the other two at home. At the beginning of the strife between the States, Mr. Hileman went out in Company H, at first in the 5th, and then in the 4th Virginia, and after the first Manassas battle, where he was wounded in the cheek with a piece of shell, he was transferred to the 27th Regiment, "Stonewall Brigade." At the battle of Gettysburg he was shot in the thigh; and three months later transferred to the quartermaster department and commissioned by the quartermaster- general, A. R. Lawton, as impressing officer under Major James G. Paxton, quartermaster of horse department. He furnished one hundred of the horses that removed Lee's army-baggage from the breastworks at Petersburg at the beginning of the retreat which ended in the surrender at Appomattox. He has yet in his possession many interesting documents relative to his duties while in this department. Also a pistol that was used at the time of the John Brown raid, which he has preserved as a relic. Mr. Hileman is one of the finest marble-cutters in the country, and preeminently a self-made man. He is carrying on a very extensive and profitable business at Lexington, Rockbridge county, Virginia.
