Death of A Pioneer

William C. Hilleary, a pioneer settler of Marion County, died at his home near here, Friday, January 17, 1908, after an illness of some three months. He was born in Fanquier County, Virginia, January 29, 1823, and came to Missouri with his parents in 1835 and settled in Marion County, where, with the exception of two years spent in California, he continued to reside until the time of his death. During the Civil War he served as a soldier for three years in the confederate army. He was a prominent member of the Masonic lodge at Hunnewell for about forty years. All of his family except one brother and one sister have preceded him across the river. He was married to Miss Elizabeth Payne, February 13, 1855. To this union was born seven children, all of whom survive him. For almost 54 years he and his wife traveled the pathway of life together.
Funeral services were conducted at the family residents Sunday at eleven o'clock, by Rev. E. McNair after which the remains were taken to the cemetery at Andrew Chapel and after it an impressive ceremony by the Masons, were laid to rest.
