Mrs. Hill was born on July 26, 1828, at Fairfield, Westmoreland County. Her maiden name was Stewart and her parents died many years ago in Westmoreland County.

They lived there until 1889, when they moved to Armagh, where her husband also died.

Deceased is survived by three children, viz: Mary, wife of Dr. R. J. Tomb, of Armaugh; Laura M., wife of T. W. Cramer of Cramer, Pa., and Stewart A. Hill, of this city, who is mentioned above. She is also survived by two brothers -- William Stewart, of Irvin, and Jacob, of Cincinnati -- and one sister -- Mrs. James T. Bracken -- of Buffington Township, Indiana County.

Cummings, after which the remains were taken overland to the cemetery at Blacklick Furnace, where interment was made alongside the remains of her husband.
