Mrs. J. W. Hill.
Mrs. Clara M. Hill, the wife of Mr. James W. Hill, of Resaca, died at her home at that place last Thursday and her remains were brought to this city and interred at Oak Hill Saturday.

Mrs. Hill was very well known in Cartersville having spent some time here in the last several years.  She was a consistent member of the Methodist church, which she joined in 1859, and was notable for pity, for charity and good deeds.  With her husband she had lived at Resaca since December 20, 1856 continuously except a short time they lived in Cartersville.  She was the mother of three children, one dying in infancy, another a son dying at 16 years of age, and her daughter, the wife of Dr. W. C. Griffin, dying in this city some five years ago.  Mr. and Mrs. Hill were very much devoted to their grandchildren, Clark, Myrth and Caldwell Griffin.  She was in her 65th year, being born April 20, 1836.

She was originally Miss Clara Ingles, of Athens, Ga., and was married to Mr. Hill September 18, 1853.

In her home town, and in fact wherever she was known, she possessed many friends, who sorrow at her death.

The funeral was from the home of Dr. Griffin.
