Re: thomas/ada hill-my ggrandparents

You may be able to follow them in St Louis in the older City Directories. City directories were like phone books, but listed everybody. They are available in the county library on Lindbergh (and possibly downtown)in the special collections.

check out their other holdings, especially the Julius Hunter Collection. Since Julius Hunter's roots are in MS, he made sure the library included MS records. Draft records, and MS Census are there on microfilm.

the St Louis Argus may hold obituaries if you know death dates. With a high frequency name like Hill, though, it will be frustrating looking and selecting the right one if you don't know the death date

they also provide a partial index to deaths listed in the Post Dispatch
