The  Shelby  Democrat
Thursday, June 13, 1918
Had Been in Methodist Hospital
at Indianapolis Since Last of May.
(From Wednesday's Daily.)
         Samuel Hillman, a prominent resident of Marietta, died at the Methodist hospital in Indianapolis Tuesday evening at 10 o'clock, from uremia, with which he had been suffering for some time.  He was aged sixty-one years and six months.
          The deceased was born in Bartholomew county, the son of  Mr. and Mrs. John Hillman.  Most of this life had been spent in Shelby county.  He was taken to the hospital on May 29, 1918, in the hope of saving his life, but relief could not be obtained.
          Mr. Hillman is survived by his widow, Mrs. Belle Hillman, and tow sons, namely, John H., who resides in Pennsylvania, and  Harry H., living at Ogden, Ill.  He also leaves two half-sisters, Jane McKinney  and  Emma Applegate, and two grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
          The death of Mr. Hillman removes a valuable man from the Marietta neighborhood and the many friends he had there deeply mourn his demise.  The funeral services will be held at the Marietta M. E. Church, the Red Men's lodge, of which he was a member, taking part in the ceremony.  Burial will be made in the Miller cemetery, the day and time of the funeral to be announced tomorrow.  Hendrickson & Sleeth are the undertakers in charge.
