|Stewart A. Hill.|
The subject of this sketch died at his residence, No. 730 Horner street, Seventh Ward, at 10:50 o'clock this forenoon, the cause of his demise being Bright's disease. Mr. Hill had been sick for a long time. He began to bleed at the nose at 7 o'clock last evening and continued until 1:30 o'clock this morning. At 3 o'clock he became unconscious, and thus passed away at the time stated.
Stewart A. Hill was born in Armstrong County, this State, forty-six years ago, and was a son of John W. and Martha Hill, deceased. His father died ten years ago and his mother five years later. The late Mrs. Wilbur McConaughy was a sister of the subject of this sketch.
Mr. Hill came to Johnstown about twenty-two years ago from Indiana County, where he taught school for a number of terms, to accept a position as a teacher in the Seventh Ward. Later he went to work in Wood, Morrell & Co.'s shoe store, and when Mr. John McConaughy severed his connection as foreman of the shoe department Mr. Hill was made his successor.
The deceased was married in this city about twenty years ago to Laura, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elias Paul, of Franklin street, Sixth Ward, who survives him with four children, viz: Bessie, a student in the Johnstown High School; Edith, Forest, and Martha Marie. He is also survived by two sisters -- Mary, wife of Dr. R. J. Tomb, of Armagh, and Laura, wife of Thomas W. Cramer, of Cramer, Indiana County.
Stewart A. Hill was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church from boyhood. His father was a local minister in that denomination and the subject of this sketch became converted when quite young. Upon his arrival in this city he united with the Franklin street congregation and was a faithful attendant at the services of the same as long as his health permitted.
The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, when Rev. Silas T. Mitchell will conduct the obsequies. Interment will be made in Grand View Cemetery.
