Castello Welcome, youngest son of Varnum and Lavina Cheesborough Hill, was born in Albion, Wis., May 16, 1852, and passed away at Ingleside, Neb., August 5, 1933.
While he was a boy his parents moved to a place near Dakota, Waushara County, Wis. They became a part of the Seventh Day Baptist group there.
About 1874 Mr. Hill came to Nebraska and soon homesteaded. On January 1, 1876, he was united in marriage with Eva Davis by Elder Oscar Babcock. To this union were born three sons: Claude, Otto, and Jud. Mr. and Mrs. Hill experienced the rigors and privations of pioneer life. They shared willingly and joyously these hardships as they built their home in a new land.
Brother Hill was highly respected by his neighbors and friends. Honesty was one of his cardinal virtues. He was good-natured and kind. Early in life he became a Christian, was baptized and joined the church. At the time of his passing he was a member of the North Loup Seventh Day Baptist Church.
Mr. Hill is the last of his immediate family of three brothers and one sister. There survive, besides his widow and his three sons, a half brother living in Burnam, Wis., eight grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.
Farewell services were conducted by Pastor Hurley S. Warren from the A. H. Babcock home. Interment was in the North Loup Cemetery. H. S. W.
