Mrs. Nellie Kirk Froehner
at the tombstone of Malinda (Frost Dwight) Hill.

This is the lady that started all of this. She did all of the research to qualify to be a Daughter of the Republic.

Malinda (Frost Dwight) Hill
(back of headstone)

The first three photos on this page are of my great-grandmother's headstone. However, this is the most important for all Dwight families and their kin. My grandfather made his mother's tombstone and he listed all of his brother's on the back side. The only thing I will never understand is why he did not list his only sister Elizabeth. She was first born and was carried seven days through the woods after the indian massacre at Fort Parker.

Malinda (Frost Dwight) Hill
(front of headstone)

There is one thing unique about Malinda's headstone. If you look on the bottom you will see that W Hill was inscribed in it. I assume that meant William Hill. However, I do not know anything about him at this time.
