N Gus or Nathaniel Gustaves Hill and Jessie Inez Barton were my 2nd great-grandparents. They were the parents of my great-grandmother, Blanche Kathryn Hill. You can see photos of my Hill family here.

Their headstone was placed in a family plot in Center Point Cemetery (Center Point, Howard County, Arkansas). Nathan Gus and Jessie Hill’s headstone is the short one on the left. The middle stone belongs to Nathan’s mother, Josie Hill pictured below and the one on the right belongs to Nathan’s son-in-law, Barnard Maggard, also pictured below.

Josie Hill was Josephine F Cox who married Joseph Watson Hill, 16 January 1861 in Newberry, South Carolina. She predeceased her husband by about 26 years.  Joseph Hill died in 1913 in Annona, Texas, so he is not buried in the Hill family plot. Josie and Joseph Hill were the parents of Nathaniel Gustaves Hill and were my 3rd great-grandparents.
