Asahel Hollister served in the Revolutionary War from Conn. in Capt. Elijah Wright's company, Col. Roger Enos' regiment, stationed on the Hudson river, at West Point in 1778.

In the Painesville Republican of Feb. 28, 1839 is the following notice of his death:

"Died in Kirtland, Ohio Feb. 12, 1839, Mr. Asahel Hollister, aged 76 years, formerly from Glastonbury, Conn., a revolutionary pensioner. Mr. Hollister made an early profession of religion, and joined the M.E. Church with which he remained for nearly twenty years, but left them and joined the Latter Day Saints (Mormons) about six years since, and died in the full faith of that doctrine. He has left a large and respectable circle of relatives and friends to mourn the loss of one who was a pattern of piety and Christian benevolence."

A resident of Kirtland since 1834 thinks he was buried in Waite Hill Cemetery.
