Grace Jane Broyles was born on April 27, 1826, in Greene, Tennessee, to Barbara Lotspeich and Matthias Broyles. Grace Jane married Quinn M Hill in Rhea, Tennessee, on March 11, 1844, when she was 17 years old. Her father Matthias passed away on December 14, 1862, in Crossville, Tennessee, at the age of 73. Her mother Barbara passed away on December 14, 1862, in Crossville, Tennessee, at the age of 72. Her parents had died from a disease they had contracted from Civil War soldiers that were sick (typhus) and they helped nurse them--the soldiers recovered but the elderly couple died and were buried in the same grave. Her husband Quinn M passed away on March 14, 1869, at the age of 53. They had been married 25 years. Grace Jane Broyles Hill died before November 10, 1876 , (date when her will was probated) when she was 50 years old in Cedar City, Cedar County, Missouri. I believe she was buried in Gum Springs Cemetery but has no headstone as her husband and some of her children were buried here.
