William Hill

William Hill was born in New York state, March 4, 1833, and died in Jackson Center, Ind., July 25, 1897, aged 64 years, 4 months and 20 days.

He was united in marriage to Mary J. Curtis of Gossetsburg, Ind., March 24, 1859. To them were born two children, a son, E. B. Hill, of Chicago, and a daughter, Anna E. Reed, of Kansas.

The deceased had been a consistent member of the M. E chuch for a number of years. In his last hour on earth he requested that the members of his family and friends kneel by his bedside and he offered up a prayer in behalf of those present and all absent friends, then quietly sank into the arms of his Savior.

The funeral was held in the Jackson Center M. E. church, Monday, July 26. The sermon was preached by Dr. J. L. Smith from a text from the book of Job, fourteenth chapter and tenth verse: "But man dieth and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he?" A large concourse of friends and neighbors of the deceased were in attendance. The interment was in the Carter cemetery.
