GREENSBURG, Pa., Oct. 22.--Andrew Reid Hill, 74 years old, a lifelong resident of Washington township, died Thursday morning. Mr. Hill was a veteran of the Civil War, having served with the 91st Pennsylvania Volunteers for two years. His widow and four children survive him.[House Report 550, 'Pensions and increase of pensions for certain soldiers and sailors of the Civil War, etc. March 13, 1926'. Serial Set volume 8538, 69th Congress, 1st Session, session volume D. Page 209]
H. R. 5557, Henrietta R. Hill, aged 76 years, whose post-office address is 157 Freeport Road, New Kensington, Pa., is the widow of Andrew R. Hill, late a private, Company I, Ninety-first Regiment Pennsylvania Infantry, from August 27, 1864, to March 30, 1865, and who died October 14, 1920.
He and this claimant were married September 24, 1868. She is now pensioned at $30 a month under certificate No. 904237.
The medical evidence shows she is mentally incompetent from softening of the brain and requires an attendant at all times.
She has title to 40 acres of land which is valued at $1,000 and which is encumbered in the sum of $700. Her pension is her only income, as the land is unproductive and appears to be a liability rather than an asset. No one is legally bound to her support.
It is recommended her pension be increased to $50 a month.
