BRIEF SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF JUDGE MCDILL.

James Wilson McDill was born in Butler county, Ohio, March 4, 1834. He died of typhoid fever at his home in Creston, Iowa, on February 28, 1894, aged 59 years, 11 months and 24 days. Judge McDill was a man slightly over medium height, of heavy build, light complexion, hair brown bordering on sandy, broad shoulders, standing erect, walking with modest tread and possessing an attractive presence. Mr. McDill was one of the well-known pioneers of Union county. He came to Afton April 16, 1857, having been identified with the county about thirtyseven years.

When he was quite young his father, Rev. John McDill, removed with his family to Hanover, Jefferson county, Indiana, where he became the settled pastor of a church, and died in 1840. He commenced his preparatory studies at Hanover college, and in 1845 returned to Ohio and continued his studies at Salem academy, South Salem, Ross county. In 1851 he entered the junior class of Miami university and graduated in 1853. After this he taught school one year in Kossuth, Iowa, then returned to Ohio and began the study of law at Columbus with Messrs. Galloway & Mathews. He was admitted to the bar at Akron September 30, 1856. In October following he came to lowa, spending the winter at Burlington, coming to Afton the following spring.

In August, 1857, he was married to Miss Narcissa Fullen wider, daughter of Samuel Fullenwider, who emigrated from Kentucky to Iowa in 1837. There are four daughters and one son living. Upon locating at Afton, Mr. McDill at once formed a law partnership with Reuben Riggs, Esq, the firm's name being Riggs & McDill. In the fall of 1858, Mr. McDill was elected county judge of Union county, and in 1859 he was elected county superintendent of schools, the first one elected to that position in Union county.

In November, 1861, Governor Grimes, who had then become United States Senator, appointed Judge McDill clerk of the Senate Committee on the District of Columbia, of which committee Governor Grimes was chairman. This position he filled until February, 1862, when he was appointed by Governor Chase, then secretary of the treasury, to a clerkship in the third auditor's office at Washington,
