*R. W. H. HILL.

Forc^tvllle, Peij. 22, 1841. This was
the yesr in which William Henry Har
rison was elected president of the
United States. His father and moth

- preeMent-and other people went a step
farther and called him by the presi
dent's nlchimme. Tionec-iuioe. whiri>
in time became shortened to "Tip" by
which name he was known nil his life.
There seems to be a little uncertain
ty on the part of some or his contem
porary friends as to his school days,
1>ui awwtHug tu Hie ?Ml ttV.bitffnrion
available he was taught (tie first ele
ment? at hnnin hy hip mnthor nn wno
: tbp "iiatom with mostr small children
of that day. Later he was sent to a
private school In Richmond county
taught ny a Mrs. Lilttte. In his later
yfeaj*s he was fond ot entertaining his
grand children with tales of pranks
"and mischief tEaTTie~got Into at this
school. !
When he got too old for "petticoat
government" he was sent to Loulsburg
?fcbere he boarded in the home of Mi*.
* M. S. DaviB and went to his school
for several years; then he went to
school in Hillsboro for one year and
was there when the wcr broke out.
Not waiting to be drafted, nor even
Waiting tor his parents consent?for
he had not reached his majority?he
left Uie school with a lumber of his
mates and enlisted in Cotnpany E, 47th
Regiment, Pettigrew*s Brigade, and
Heath's Division of the Army of North
era Virginia.
He went .through the whole four
years pf tjie war, taking part in all the
battles iiw ^rhlch his company was en
gaged. wille he left many of his
comrades dead on the battlefields and
helped others off who were sorely
-wounded? he himself seemed prtfcected
.hy a special providence tor he did not
receive the slightest wound during the
.whole four years.
In 1867 he married Miss Temple Hil
Jiard Gee, ot this county.. Her people
.shortly afterwards moved to Mississ
ippi an? Mr. Hill and his wife went to
itfle old (Jew home place to live. To
gether they went through all the trou
bles and trials and Joys wnich are com
mon to all parents with a largfe family
of children to rear.
When the older children grew np
-the family moved .to Loulaburg in or
der to take advantage of better oppor
tunities offered by living In town.
In 1906 Mrs. Hill died leaving him
-?a wHewer, but with many homes In
which he was welcome. While he~ilk
ed to pastl back and forth and visit all
-his children he seemed to prefer to
call Mr. P. A. H ?avis' home.
He died-Jan. IS, 1922 and was laid
'to rest in his confederate uniform
which'he loved so well. It seems pe
culiarly fitting the birth and devh of
this patriotic cltlsen and good soldier
that he should have been born on the
anniversary of Washington's birthday
and died on the anniversary of I^ee i.
In spite ot the steady down pour of
rain there was a large gathering at

the home of Mr. P. A. Reavls, find a
long line of cars to follow the bier to
