Death: Oct. 9, 1954

Lucy Eversole was born on Oct. 11, 1870 in Clay Co., Kentucky. She was the first born child of Jesse Eversole (1849-1911) and Mary Matilda Finley (1754-1890). Her parents are thought to have had at least 18 children. Lucy's mother Mary was just 15 when she married Jesse and had just turned 17 when she gave birth to Lucy.

Both of Lucy's parents were born in Clay Co., Kentucky where they lived their entire lives. Mary died at age 35 and was buried in the Bowling Cemetery in Big Creek, Clay Co., KY. Jesse died 21 years later at the age of 62 and was buried in the Marcum Cemetery in Manchester, Clay Co., KY.

Lucy married widower John Emory Hill (1852-1930) on April 27, 1898 in Campbell Co., TN. It is thought that she met John while working at a hotel restaurant in Harrogate, TN.

John's first wife was Cynthia Robinson (1859-1892), daughter of Robert H. Robinson (1822-1887) and Elizabeth Wilson (1824- ?). John and Cynthia were married on May 31, 1874 in Campbell Co., TN when she was just 14 years of age. John was 21.

Cynthia died on June 23, 1892 of "consumption" (TB) at the young age of 32. She and Emory were married for 18 years and had seven known children. Cynthia was buried in the Alexander Cemetery in Speedwell, Claiborne Co., TN.

As mentioned earlier John and Lucy were married in 1898. John was 45, Lucy 27. They were married for 32 years and had at least three children. Throughout their marriage their home was in Claiborne Co., TN.

John died the day before Christmas in 1930 at the age of 78. He was buried in the Ely Cemetery located in Cumberland Gap, Claiborne Co., Tennessee.

Lucy never remarried. She died about 23 years later in 1954, in the Scott Nursing Home located that was located at 114 Baxter Street in Knoxville, Tennessee. She had been a resident there for only six days. Prior to her admission she had been living in Clinton, Anderson Co., TN with her youngest son Eugene Leslie Hill (2014-2001) and his family. She had been living with them since at least 1940.

Lucy was 83 at the time of her death. Her body was returned home to Cumberland Gap, Claiborne Co., TN to be buried near her husband John in the Ely Cemetery.
