Son of Frank E. Hill and Olive M. "Ollie" Schutt


Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, March 15, 1917


Fred Hill, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hill, passed away at St. Joseph's hospital in Ottumwa on Saturday, March 10th, 1917, at the age of 16 years and 9 months, after an illness of about two weeks with typhoid-pneumonia.

The remains were brought to this city and taken to the home of his parents in east Chariton, where funeral services were held on Monday afternoon at two o'clock, conducted by Rev. W. J. Gillmore, pastor of the Christian church, after which interment took place in the Chariton cemetery.

Deceased was born in Macon, Mo., June 10, 1900. He came to Chariton with his parents from Keota, Mo. about four years ago. For several months he was a student in the Chariton high school, but a few months ago he went to work in the Central Mine No. 1, where he was employed when he was taken ill.

He was one of a family of twelve children and his death is the first break in the family circle. He was a bright, energetic young man, well liked by his associates, and his demise is deplored by all who knew him.

The sorrowing parents and the eleven brothers and sisters who survive will have the deep sympathy of the community.
