The remains of Herman Gill, who died November 9th at the Government Hospital at Greenville, S. C., arrived here Sunday and were taken 
to the home of his brother at Everman. 

Burial Monday afternoon at the Everman graveyard. The pall-bearers, who were six soldier boys, were as follows; 
Mort Ward, Glen Haight, Alfrey Houck, Sheridan Hilton, Walter Carroll, Hugh Brown. 

The ceremonies at the grave were short but impressive. The flag for which he died was raised and lowered, and the body was consigned 
to the silent tomb to await the call of the Great Commander.     

Herman Gill enlisted at Grayson, September 7th, 1917. He served in France from June 14th, 1918, to February 14, 1919, 
and was discharged at Camp Zachary Taylor March 19, 1919. 

He was sent to Greenville, S. C. Oct. 14, 1921 for treatment where he died Wednesday, November 9th, 1921 of tuberculosis.     

He was the seventh man called by the Local Board of the county and was one of the first to respond to the call going with the first squad to 
Camp Taylor from Carter county.
