Son of Jacob Hileman Jr. and Catharine Eddleman, Husband of Mary Dunlap, married 1839; Father of at least the following children, Mary Catherine, John Wesley, Sarah Ann, Eliaz Jane, Elizabeth Caroline and William Thomas. A member of the Masonic Order, Benton, Arkansas.

Obituary: Died, at his residence, on Pea Ridge, June 22nd, at 2 O'clock p.m., Jacob Hileman, one of the oldest and best citizens of this country. His death was sudden, being caused by obstruction of the bowels from strangulated hernia. All was done to save him that could be done, but all failed, an opeation was decided on a last resort for his relief. Herniotomy was performed by Drs. Hurley Coffelt and Floyd. He never fully reacted from the operation, but rapidly sank into a stupor from which he never aroused. He breathed his last surrounded by his family and many friends. His remains were followed by the largest procession ever witnessed in this county, to the cemetery near the Pea Ridge Academy, where they were interred with Masonic honors by his brethren.

Funeral discourse to his memory will be delivered by Reverend Thos. J. Reynolds at Hilemans' Chapel, Sunday July 4, at 11 a.m. The bereaved wife and children have the condolence of many friends and the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community. Theo A. Coffelt
