Thanks, Abigail. I have since found out that my Rev. William Henry Hill was born in IL and his wife, Elda Dobbins, was born in KS. She may have been a Quaker. M. Matthews

If you are able to locate these, I would also be interested. Many of my ancestors are there, and monument inscriptions are leading to much confusion.
