Nancy (McDonald) Hill 1830-1902


Nancy Hill, beloved wife of V.B. Hill, departed this life on Thursday evening, January 9, 1902, at 10:30 of the clock. She had suffered for years from asthma and bronchitis, which finally caused her death.

Her maiden name was Nancy McDonald, born in St. Louis county, Mo., December 4, 1830. Her father, Jas. A. McDonald, afterward removed to Texas county and died there. She and V.B. Hill were married January 8, 1856, at the home of her brother, W.W. McDonald, in the town of Waynesville, Pulaski county, Mo., and she and her husband lived happily together forty-six years and one day.

There were born to them six children, four of whom died in infancy; only two surviving their mother, the oldest, Mrs. J.B. Harrison of Rolla, and the youngest, Mrs. W.H. Locker, of Waynesville.

She was a loving, faithful wife, and patient in her long suffering. She was a faithful member of the Baptist church at Waynesville, she was baptized in 1879 by Elder M.M. King, pastor of the Baptist church at that time. She is buried at the grave-yard on the farm just west of Waynesville.

We believe she died in Christ and that she will be raised up in the first resurrection. We are told the dead in Christ rise first; then we that are alive that are left shall together with them be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

One Who Loved Her Dearer Than All
