Henry Hezekiah Hill (1853-1936) and Mary Elizabeth (Jordan) Hill (1858-1951).

Frank and Ida's son Gene circa 1916.
Gene and Mary Lucille Hill.
This is the watch that Frank gave to Gene for his 18th birthday in 1930 and that Gene gave to me on my 18th birthday in 1954.
(If any family member reading this has an idea about who would like to inherit and would treasure this watch, I'd like to hear from you at .)
Frank with his "regular train crew". According to Jack Davies, Frank's son-in-law, the people in the photo are (L to R): Frank, his fireman, 2 brakemen and his conductor.
Frank had this photo made into a postcard that he sent from Mt Carmel to some of the family. No date is given but the logo on the tender says "New York Central" so it may have been taken about 1930.
New York Central locomotive Number 2016 in the yards at Mt Carmel, Illinois, in 1939. This is very likely one of the locomotives that Frank drove on the "Little Egypt" line of the Cairo division of the New York Central Railway.
