Birth: 1830
Death: Jul. 23, 1905

Spirit of Democracy, Woodsfield, Ohio, dated, August 10, 1905

While the wheels of time move slowly on and bring to us the swift winged angel of death, which has entered a home at the Hillsdale place and took the husband and father Joseph Hill after a lingering sickness of ten weeks.

On July 23, 1905, at 12 o'clock the soul took its departure to the God who gave it. Joseph Hill was the father of eleven children, six sons and five daughters, two of the daughters having preceded him to the better land. He was attended by the best of physicians, also a trained nurse, Miss Gertrude Bierwiler. He was very patient during his illness often expressing a desire to depart and be with Christ which is far better.

His children were all present at the funeral, the sons acting as pall bearers. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Mungo Taylor of Marietta, the text being chosen in second Corinthians, fifth chapter and first verse. Mr. Hill was a native of West Virginia having emigrated to this county in 1853.

In 1856 he was married to Hannah Whitney, daughter of Rev. John Whitney who emigrated to this country from the state of Maine in his boyhood days. Mr. Hill was one of the most energetic and successful farmers of this county, but of late years had lived a retired life, had spent the most of his time for the past few years in Canton.

He was a member of the Unity Baptist church for over forty-five years and at the time of his death was 75 years, six months and four days old. His

six sons are all dentists, also four of his grandsons.

Father, thou hast left us but in heaven we hope to meet thee never more to part.
