He was born in Lincolnshire, England, November 8, 1845, a son of Joseph and Eliza (Copeland) Hildred, both of whom died in England.

At that time but little of it was cleared, but since then he has developed the farm, erected all of the buildings and made other improvements. To the original eighty acres, which are now all cleared, he has added eighty acres, all of which he has cleared, 'and now has it in grain and pasture. Until the spring of 1917 he operated a dairy but then sold it, and is now devoting himself to the raising of Duroc-Jersey thoroughbred hogs.
