    "The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 92, No 17, p 543, Apr. 24, 1922.
    Benjamin Hall Stillman, son of Deacon Almeran P. and Hannah Hall Stillman, was born in Hebron, Pa., May 26, 1837.
    He died at the home of his son in White Salmon, Washington, March 24, aged 84 years, 9 months and 28 days.
    His mother was killed by lightning when he was a small boy, and he moved with his father to Michigan, and then to Wisconsin when he was about ten or eleven years old, passing through Chicago when it was a small village, and the mud in the street was axle deep to the ox wagons in which they traveled. He lived in these States and Minnesota in the pioneer days.
    He enlisted in the Union Army in the early days of the Civil War, enlisting in Company "D" of the Seventh Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, and was detached to service in Battery "B", of the noted fighting organization known as the "Iron Brigade." With these organizations he saw nearly four years of active service. He was in thirty-nine major engagements, including the second battle of Bull Run, Antietam, Gettysburg, etc., and was more than three hundred and ninety days under fire.
    Soon after his discharge in 1865 he was married to Loduska D. Burdick, daughter of Elder Russell G. Burdick. To this union two children were born: Rev. Orson A. Stillman, pastor of the Congregational Church, of White Salmon, Wash., and Laura E, Stillman, of Clatskanie, Ore., and White Salmon, Wash.
    He moved to Eugene, Ore., in 1907, and has lived in Oregon or Washington since. The past four years, with the exception of a few months, he made his home with his son Rev. O. A. Stillman, at White Salmon, Wash.
    He had been for many years a member of the Seventh Day Baptist Church. He had been a member of the G. A. R. almost from the beginning of that organization, and had been a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge for about forty years.
    Funeral services were held March 25, at the Congregational church of White Salmon, Wash., under the auspices of the local lodge I. O. O. F., assisted by Rev. R. T. Holland, of the Methodist church at White Salmon. The casket, draped with the Stars and Stripes, was borne by a detail from Evans Childs Post, American Legion. Interment was made in the Odd Fellows Cemetery, White Salmon, Wash. O. A. S.
