Julian Charles Hall
Born Feby. 29, 1848 at Broadstairs, England and died at Enterprise, Sunday night, Sept. 2, 1917.
The deceased had just recovered from a long spell of sickness in Chicago when they decided to come and make their home with their only daughter, Mrs. W.B. Hawkins of this city. Their son accompanied them from Chicago and they arrived two weeks ago. He seemed to be improving rapidly but complained of being weak lately. Sunday night he retired as usual and said good night to the family. Monday morning after his breakfast was prepared Mr. Hill stepped to his room to call him and was shocked to find that he was dead and had undoubtedly passed away sometime during the early part of the night. He had suffered with a weak heart and no doubt the change from a low heart and no doubt the change from a low to a high altitude was too much for one so weak.
Funeral services be conducted at the residence of his daughter, Saturday at 1 p.m., Revs. H.N. Cooper and B.F. Miller officiating.
Mr. B.A. Hill who spent two weeks here and just left for Chicago last Friday is expected to return for the funeral.
