IN MEMORY OF MEREDITH HILL
Meredith Hill died at his home at
Pipestem, W. Va.( on Tuesday night,
Feb. 18, 1930, age 89 years 10 months
and 13 days. He was born and raised
in North Carolina, and at the age of
21 years he was called to fight in the
Civil War in which he served from
the beginning to the end, passing thru
all the hardships connected with it
and escaped without any wounds. Not
long after the close of the war he
was united in marriage to Miss Eli
zabeth Cleary, also of North Carolina.
About the year of 1872 they moved
to Wyoming County, they later mov
ed to Raleigh county, and about the
year 1904 moved to his home in Pipe
stem where his death occurred.
Mr. Hill had been in feeble health
for several years but was stricken
seriously sick with pleurisy about 29
days before his death. His physician
held no hope of his recovery from the
beginning of his illness and his death
was not unexpected, but a great
shock not only to his sons and daugh
ters, but by many close friends. Ev
eryone received a royal welcome when
visiting “Uncle Merida,” as he was
familiarly called. He had a smile for
everyone and was of a jovial disposi
tion, making everyone feel at home
at his fireside.
He leaves to mourn their loss 3 sons
and 4 daughters, as follows: Hiram,
John and Harrison Hill, all of Pipe
stem; Mrs. Polly Wood and Mrs.
Nancy Gray of Lester; Mrs. Matilda
Sizemour, of Mebane, and Mrs. Jane
Hughes of Pipestem. Also a host of
grandchildren and great grandchil
dren; also a host of relatives and
friends still living in North Carolina.
His wife preceded him to the grave
over 16 years ago. Funeral services
were held at the home Thursday af
ternoon at 2 o’clock by Rev. Thomas
Jenkins in the presence of a large
number of friends and relatives. Bu
rial followed in the Hauchins ceme
tery nearby where he was laid to rest
to await the resurrection morn, and
when sorrow and parting are no

This is an hilarious comedy in 3
acts, written by Walter Richardson.
James Dare is a rich idle bachelor

eight. Will he marry?—can he mar

be possible for him to' get a wife on

barrassments and difficulties in ob
taining the million dollar wife will
entertain you so thoroughly that you
will not notice the passing of two
