OIHTUAItV OF -SIRS MARGARET
Margaret Hillis was born March 6,
1S34 and died June 23. 1911. She
crossed the plains with her first hus
band Solomon Manwaring and four
children two of whom died on the
way. Win. Manwaring died and was
burled at Rock Point.
Sho was married to Wm. Peck
Hillis in July 1SG5. From this union
there were five children all of whom
survive her. William Hillis, John
HIUIs, Mrs. Mary Moore, Mrs. Maggie
Taylor and Mrs. Elizabeth Slmmer
vlllo; also fourteen grand children to
mour her loss.
Mrs. HIUIs knew something of the
trials and hardships of pioneer life
on tho Pacific Const and yet lived to
pass her seventy-seventh year. Four
weeks before her funeral she attend
ed tho service at the Wlmer church
when tho writer was pleased to minis
ter to her the Wrord of Life. She
lways extended a welcome with a
ready heart and band and many n
time it has been my privilege to sit
with her and her family at tho table
and partake of her hospitality.
The sturdy virtues of the early
pioneer contributed to a long and
useful career in spite of tho contest
with primitive conditions before
which many a weaker nature gave
way. She leaves behind a family
whose oneness is evident although
separated by family ties of their own
No better evidence of a well ordered
home can bo found than the fact that
her five grown children all having
families of their own are so near to
each other that all were present at
tho funeral without having to over
come time and distance. '
Tho writer by request of the fam
ily performed the last kind office for
the dead on Sunday, June 25, 1911.
Sho was buried by tho side of her
husband, Wm. P. HIUIs In tho Wood
vllle cemetery. A largo concourse of
sympathizing friends from Evans
Creek and Woodvllle attended the
