    It is interesting to, note that Loyal township received its name from Mr. Hill's brother, Oliver H., who came west with him after he left the army. Oliver H. had married Hulda Graves, and when the town was set out Oliver Hill was asked to name it. The name "Loyal" came into his mind as the result of his recent experience in fighting for the Union, and it was accepted on his suggestion.

    [This item connects Oliver Hills as a son of Pamelia Gould and Jesse Hills, and nephew of Jane Gould Pierce. However, I believe the information about Pamelia's parents is incorrect.]
