Ringgold Record, 1897

OBITUARY.

John Clelan HILLHOUSE was born Feb. 25, 1816, in Livingston county, Ky., and died March 2, 1897, at Delphos, Ringgold county, Iowa. He was, therefore, 81 years and seven days old.

He removed from his native state to Jefferson county, Ill., about the year 1835, returning to Nashville, Tenn., soon after, where he spent four years in college. He again returned to Illinois where he engaged in teaching school for a number or years. In 1861 he moved to Iowa, locating in Poweshiek county. In the year 1874 he moved to Kansas, returning to Iowa in about a year, and locating at Redding, where he resided until the spring of 1890, when he moved to Delphos, where he has since resided.

In the year 1842 he was married to Miss Elizabeth A. DAVIDSON, of Salem, Ill. To this union were born five sons and five daughters. The mother and six children mourn his departure.

He was a member of the Presbyterian church from his early childhood until in his nineteenth year when he chose to become a member of the M. E. church, in which he remained a consistent and exemplary member until death. A husband and father, a faithful christian, an exemplary neighbor, and a good citizen has gone from us. Let us emulate his example. To Father HILLHOUSE the promise, "Thou shalt come to they grave in a full age like a shock of corn cometh in his season," has been fulfilled.

The funeral was held at the family residence on Thursday, at 2 p.m., and was conducted by Rev. Thos. M. EVANS. The interment took place on Friday at Rose Hill cemetery.
