|JOHN W. HILL|
The subject of this notice, whose death is elsewhere announced, was born in Westmoreland County, Pa., in the year 1822. He was a farmer's boy and followed farming all his life. While still a resident of Westmoreland County he married Miss Martha Stewart, who, with four children survives him. From Westmoreland he went to Armstrong County, where he lived for a number of years, removing to a farm near Armagh, Indiana County, in 1868. Two years ago he left the farm and took up his residence in Armagh, where he died yesterday afternoon. For several years he had been helplessly crippled from rheumatism, and death came as a welcome release from suffering. The surviving children are Mr. S. A. Hill of this city; Mary, wife of Dr. R. J. Tomb, of Armagh; Harriet, wife of W. H. McConnaughey, of East Wheatfield Township; and Laura, single and at home. Mr. Hill was a member of the Methodist Church from boyhood, was always active in church work, and lead a very pious life.
