Mrs. Minnie Hill of Cooperstown admitted to Mary Imogene Hospital. Mrs. Hill's condition on Tuesday was reported as critical March 1943.

Mrs. Minnie A. Hill, widow of Wallace Hill, died Wednesday in the Mary Imogene Bassett hospital. An invalid from arthritis since 1920, and unable to walk the last two years, Mrs. Hill suffered an attack of pneumonia ten days ago, from which she rallied, and then was stricken with a cerebral hemorrhage, which resulted in her death. A direct descendant of William Gallt, a victim of the Cherry Valley massacre of the Revolutionary period, Mrs. Hill was born in Cherry Valley May 13, 1869, the daughter of John and Caroline (Gallt) Pegg. Her early life was spent in the town of her birth. She came to Cooperstown from Oneonta, when her husband, a conductor on the Delaware & Hudson railroad for many years, was transferred to the Cooperstown branch of the road. Two years after his transfer, Mr. Hill suffered a paralytic stroke while on train duty, and she gave him devoted care during a seven year invalidism, until his death Feb 5, 1920. Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. John L. Shepard, Boonville; Mrs. Matthew L. Burnet, Cooperstown; a son, Sgt. Harold L. Hill, Sr., of Craig Field, Selma, Ala., called home by his mother's illness, and one brother, George E. Pegg, Cherry Valley ... burial will be in the family plot in East Worcester cemetery."
