RACHEL (WILSON) MOFFET HILL - BUTLER - It again becomes our sad duty to chronicle the death of another pioneer. Rachel (Wilson) Hill was born near Ft. Parmer in the Ligonier Valley, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, February 11, 1811.
In the year 1833, the Wilson family moved to Worthington Township, this county. The deceased was married to James Moffet in 1835, and with her husband moved to Hardin County, Ohio, where the husband died shortly after. She then returned to her parents in this locality. In 1838 she was united in marriage to Daniel Hill to whom were born two sons and one daughter. Richard, the elder son lost his life in the late war.
The only surviving member of the Hill family is Benjamin C., who resides on the old homestead. The deceased was one of the originators of the old dispensation of the Clearfork Presbyterian Church being a member up to the time of her death which occurred January 3rd. Funeral took place on Friday at Bunker Hill, Rev. Caldwell officiating. Her age was 82 years, 10 months and 22 days.
