The many friends of Frank H. Hill will regret to learn of his death a few days ago at his home in Atlanta, of typhoid fever. Mr. Hill, during his residence in Corinth of several years, was connected with the office of W.H. Nance & Co., as bookkeeper. Everyone liked Frank Hill for his many excellent traits of character. Gentle and kind, open hearted and free, a gentleman at all times, a friend that could be depended upon, he will be missed from the busy walks of life and above all from the home of a christian mother whose life was devoted to her beloved son’s welfare.
