Parkhill, Mrs. Wm. (4 NOV 1860 - 9 Sep 1915)

Mrs. Wm. Parkhill died at her home in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on Thursday, Sept. 9, 1915, of creeping paralysis, aged 54 years, 10 months and 5 days. She was born in Essex County, N.Y. and came with her parents to Colby, Wis. about forty years ago, where she was united in marriage with Mr. Parkhill, who, with three sons and five daughters, survive. Her illness extended over a period of several months during which time she was a patient sufferer and bore up bravely, but to no purpose. Funeral services were held at the residence on Monday afternoon by Rev. J. B. Bachman. The body, accompanied by the family, was taken to Colby on the Tuesday morning train, where interment took place beside the remains of six children who died previous to her removal to this place. Mr. Parkhill and family have the sympathy of the whole community in their affliction.
