Mrs. Alice V. Hill (nee Titchenal) was born in Foster township on February 20, 1845, and died Thursday morning, September 23, 1909. She was married to William Henry Hill, April 13, 1862. To this union were born five sons, all of whom survive their mother. They are William, James and Scott, of Fosterburg; David of East Alton; and John Hill of Woodburn. Mrs. Hill lost her husband on July 3, 1901, when he was instantly killed by a fast train on the Big Four at Bethalto. Besides her sons, she leaves 14 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild; 4 brothers and 3 sisters. The brothers are George Titchenal of Kansas City; John Titchenal of East Alton; David Titchenal of Washington; and Thomas Titchenal of Fosterburg. The sisters are Mrs. Julia Johns of Oregon; Mrs. Melissa Williams of Washington; and Mrs. Rebecca Megowen of Upper Alton. At an early age Mrs. Hill united with the Christian church at Antioch. She was a good neighbor, a kind mother, and a friend to the poor and needy. She was known far and wide for her sympathy and aid. No hungry person was ever turned away from her door. The funeral was held at the Mt. Olive church Sunday morning at 11 o'clock. Rev. T. N. Marsh, of Upper Alton, officiating. It was very largely attended by relatives, friends and neighbors, many being obliged to remain outside during the services as the church could not hold all of them. The casket was borne to the grave by Messrs. John, William, and Moses Thompson, Timothy Merrigan, Clemens Kaller, and N. M. Duvall, all aged friends. Burial was in Mt. Olive Cemetery.
