James Hill born East Indies

Surnames: Hill
I am hoping someone can help me--my g grandfather's death certificate says he was born in the East Indies. The family story is that his father was either in the British military or connected to a diplomatic post. We always thought India, but don't know. He was supposedly a triplet, but that's family lore. His death certificate in Philadelphia says he was born Aug 21, 1861. He usually wrote his name Jas. He was a rug weaver by trade.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. We have always believed India was his birth place, and that perhaps his mother was not British...just have no idea.--Karen
