Hial J. Church was born in Dane, Dane Co., Wis., Dec. 2, 1867, and died at his home at Kirtley, Jan. 29, 1915, being 47 years, one month and 27 days old.
April 21, 1890, he was married to Viola Gillett, at Broken Bow, Neb. Three children came to bless this union, all of whom, with their mother, are left to mourn a kind and loving husband and father. Besides his own family he leaves a mother and three sisters to mourn. His father passed away about two years ago. He with his family lived two years at Spring Hill, Wyo., then in Douglas one and one-half years, and twenty years ago this spring they came to the Ridge where he has lived ever since. About two weeks ago he took a bad cold which settled on his lungs, but nothing was thot about it till about a week ago when pneumonia set in. A doctor was called and all that loving hands could do was done, but to no avail. The funeral was conducted at the Hall Tuesday by Rev. Cortner; a large crown was present, and the casket was covered with beautiful flowers. The W. O. W., of which he was a member, conducted the services at the grave.
