BIO: WARD HILL:
Ward was the fourth child and second son of Rachel Jane (kimberling) Hill and Enoch Hill. He was born September 20, 1873 or 1874, probably at Chestnut Orchard, near Rock Castle, Jackson County, West Virginia.
When he was two or three years of age he came to Kansas with his parents. As a young man he was working on a job of loading boxcars on the railroad at Nickerson, Kansas. One day while he was at lunch some of his fellow workers decided to pull a prank on Ward. They overloaded a crate he was to load, thinking he would be unable to lift it. He struggled so hard lifting the crate that he injured himself internally and died shortly afterwards. Date of his death, October 13, 1893. He is buried in the same plot with his parents in the Wildmead Cemetery, Nickerson, Kansas. (This is the story told by Ward's brother, Odus Grant Hill.) The above are words of Lois Viola Baldwin Hill.
