The death of Henry Albert Hill Jr. as reported in the Ogden Standard, 1943,

Fall in mill causes death of watchman.  Henry A. Hill, 63, Ogden Succumbs as Result of Accident.  Henry A. Hill died Monday evening in a local hospital as a result of injuries sustained early Sunday morning in a fall at the Sperry Mills, where he was employed as a night watchman.  Mr. Hill was on duty early Sunday morning, and had made his six a.m. rounds when he was injured.  Marks indicated he fell into a grain opening on the seventh floor of the mill, breaking his right leg, and had apparently crawled down two flight of stairs to the fifth floor, where he was found about eight a.m. when employees arrived for work.

Site of the accident: 

Notes: Isn't this interesting!  Death Certificate says he had his accident on a Saturday (I checked the day of the week) and spent 2 days in the hospital where he died Monday, 6pm.  Doctor last saw him alive on Monday. 

Looking closer at newspaper article, they had him falling from the 7th floor and then crawling down 2 sets of stairs.  To do that, he would have had to fall TO the 7th floor from somewhere higher. 

Being a night watchman, he probably had a gun with him.  The death certificate says "accident," so the guy accidentally falls, breaks his leg, accidentally gets shot, spends 2 days in the hospital before he dies?

I'm having a hard time even guessing what really happened.  Maybe he was in such pain, that he shot himself Saturday?  But he must also have been found Saturday.

Grave marker location help: 

My go0dness it was cold in the cemetery this morning!!   My car thermometer said it was 21, but the wind was blowing about 10-15 mph and it felt like it was about 10 below zero!!   You should wait until Spring before asking for more pictures.

I suspect also want directions to this headstone?!

Actually, you already have them.   Refer to the directions I provided on 13 Dec for Clair and Hazel Boyle.   The attached photos should help refresh your memory.

Turn off Ogden City’s 20th St into the cemetery’s 11th St.   Drive north past Center St and past North St about 150 feet.   On your left side (west) you’ll see the view depicted in the first picture.

To the left and behind the “Knaack” headstone you can barely see a “Boyle” headstone.   The second picture shows it more clearly.   Henry and Alice Hill are buried about three headstones to the left of the “Boyle” headstone.  December 20, 2012
