Biography - Daniel Hileman
DANIEL HILEMAN, farmer, P. O. Jonesboro, is a descendant of one of our old and worthy pioneer families. His father, Henry Hileman, a native of North Carolina, came to this county in 1819. The mother of our subject was Elizabeth Mull, also a native of North Carolina; she died 1883 in this county. She was the mother of six children now living, viz.: Daniel, our subject; Anna Rendleman, Malinda Hargrave, Elizabeth Rendleman, Harrison and Jefferson. The Hileman family is of German descent and is mentioned in our general history. Our subject, Daniel Hileman, was educated in the schools of Union County, where he was also married afterward to Miss Sarah J. Hargrave, who was born in January, 1832, in this county. She was a daughter of Robert and Catharine (Hunsaker) Hargrave, and was the mother of three children, viz.: Emily, born June 15, 1855, wife of T. W. C. Hall; Ann Hannah, deceased, and Elizabeth C, born August 19, 1859. Mrs. Hileman is now dead. The Hileman family is one of the oldest and most respected families in Union County, and our subject has inherited many of his ancestors sterling qualities. He is a quiet, unassuming man, who spends most of his time on his farm of 240 acres near Jonesboro. In politics, he is identified with the Democratic party, although in county offices he votes for the best man.
