The death of Mrs. Martha A. Hill, wife of Capt. Joseph L. Hill, at her home on Russell street, Sunday night, as briefly mentioned in yesterday’s American, removes one of the purest Christian women and most lovable characters of the East Side. Though she had suffered for many months, oftentimes most painfully, she bore her afflictions with that spirit of Christian resignation and fortitude which stamped her as a woman out of the ordinary. Being a consistent and earnest member of the Edgefield Baptist church, however, she had no fear of death, and met her end serene in the faith. Mrs. Hill was a native of South Carolina, having been born April 3d, 1837. She removed to Nashville with her husband about twenty years ago, coming to this city from Pulaski. Besides Capt. Hill, the following children survive her: A. B. Hill, J. M. Hill, Benj. D. Hill, Thomas G. Hill, Misses Mattie and Gertrude Hill, all of this city; Mrs. Percy Luster, of Guthrie, Ky., and Mrs. V. M. Fulton, of Cleburne, Texas.

The above is from the Nashville American of November 22d. Mrs. Hill lived at Cassville before the war and will be remembered by our older citizens.
