Home in City

Thomas Warren Hill, 92, veteran of the Civil War, died at 9:45 o’clock Thursday night at his home, 7 Park Avenue.

Death terminated a long period of failing health and was attributed to a stroke. He had been seriously ill for a month.

Mr. Hill was born in what is now Wetzel county on May 25, 1842. He was the son of the late Holmes and Susan McDonald Hill. Enlisting at the opening of the Civil War in the Fifteenth West Virginia Volunteers, he served three years and eight months and held the rank of corporal in Company C, Fifteenth Infantry, at the end of the war.

He was a retired farmer and coal miner and came to this city 28 years ago from Dillonvale, O. Possessed of a remarkably good singing voice he was often called upon to sing at gatherings of Civil War veterans. He took an active part in these events.

Surviving are his wife, Martha Virginia Hill, three sons, Felix Warren Hill, Brooklyn; James Wilmer Hill, Broadacre, O., and Frank Burl Hill, at home; two daughters, Mrs. M. V. Baker, Holiday’s Cove, and Mrs. W. L. Coulter, Moundsville; 17 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren and one great great grandchild.

He was a member of Calvary M. E. Church.

The body was removed to the B. W. Riggs funeral home on Grant avenue and at four o’clock this afternoon was returned to the residence where it will lie in state until funeral services are held Sunday afternoon beginning at 2:30.

Rev. S. C. Dotson, pastor of Calvary M. E. church, will officiate, assisted by Rev. H. K. Freeman, pastor of the Baptist church. Internment will be at Greenlawn cemetery.

Saturday evening the G. A. R. will conduct a flag service at the home. Earl Francis Post No. 3, American Legion, will have charge of rites Sunday.
