Obituary.

Mrs. Sarah Adaline Hill was born in Rutherford county, N. C., March 10, 1812, and was raised by pious parents, in the strict days of early Methodism.  She joined the Methodist church in her 16th year, and in her 20th year was married to George W. Hill, with whom she lived until her death.  Of this pair were born eight children, three of them preceded Mrs. Hill to heaven, and five yet remain with her husband on earth.  She was one of a family of eight sisters all of whom were in many respects, remarkable women, being well known, and highly esteemed for piety of deportment and great energy of character.

Mrs. Hill died of dropsy of the chest on the 20th of Feb. last, having endured very great suffering for several months.  In the midst of these sufferings, she became conscious that her stay on earth was short, and expressed her abiding trust in Him who had ‘gone before to prepare a place for her.’  Her body was placed in the family burying ground in this county, in the presence of a large company, composed chiefly of family connections, and there her mortality was left to “rest in hope,” beside the graves of her children and relatives, while her sorrowing living friends went their way resolved to live more for that unseen world of which every dying friend, every open grave reminds us. –Evans.
