Betsy E. Bliss was born in Chautauqua Co., New York, July 26, 1833 and died at her home south of Monica on February 5th. 1919, aged 85 years, 7 months and 9 days.

When four and one half years old she came with her parents to the state of Illinois.

She was born of the Spirit on the fifth day of October 1848 in her 15th year, and Jesus came into her life so sweetly that she ever after loved His service.

She was united in marriage to Clark Hill who preceded her in death, departing this life for his heavenly home December 21, 1901.

To this union seven children were born. She is survived by three sons and one daughter, 29 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.

Mrs. Hill was the last of the charter members of the Mount Zion M.E. church. From childhood to death her life was made sublime in Christian service.

The funeral service was conducted by her pastor, Rev. L.P. Bear, assisted by her nephews, John and James Bliss, Thursday afternoon at the M. E. church in Monica and interment was in the Princeville cemetery.
