DEMISE OF A GOOD MAN
Joshua Binford Hill, son of Robert and Lydia Hill, was born at Carthage, Hancock county, Indiana, February 8, 1839. He moved to Iowa at the age of thirteen and lived in this neighborhood since that time.
On the 9th of February, 1865, he was married to Elizabeth Stanley, who survives him. He died at his home in Buena Vista township, Jasper county, Iowa, January 18, 1900, aged 60 years, 11 months and 21 days.
He was the father of eight children, all of whom were living and present during his last hours.
He was a man of conscientious religious principles, honest and upright in all his dealings. An indulgent father, a faithful friend, a kind neighbor, and in his large and successful business a frequent employer, never exacting over time or hesitating to return prompt payment for service rendered.
His funeral took place from his well known residence southwest of Kellogg on Saturday, January 20, 1900. A large company was present evidencing the sympathy of the community with the bereaved family.
The services were conducted by Rev. B.G. Nevill, pastor of the Friends church, assisted by Rev. F.W. Collins, of the Christian church of this place, and the remains were laid to rest in the Slagel burial ground where his father and mother were buried. (Obituary)
