James Lola Hill died December 31, 1917 of paralysis, at his residence near Clio North Carolina. By special request he was buried at Clio Church, being the first burial there in the history of the church which had been established more than 25 years. Because there were no other buried graves at Clio, he was later moved to Pisgah Church Cemetery.
