Co. KY and was the daughter of Samuel Thomas Hauser and Mary Ann
According to the information recorded in the birth and death records of
Henry and Maanry's children the family moved a good deal. In an old
newspaper clipping from a Helena, MT paper reporting the death of Maanry
Hauser Hill in Falmouth, KY on June 6, 1901 it is reported the family
moved to Helena, MT about 1887. Samuel T. Hauser (b. 1833 Falmouty, KY),
Maanry's brother had been in Montana for some time and served as
Territorial Governor of that state in 1885-86.

Text of Newspaper clipping found attached to Page 1 of Bible records:

Mrs. H. H. Hill Dies At Her Old Home

Mother of George H. Hill Passes Away at Falmouth, Kentucky

News was received in Helena yesterday of the death at Falmouth,
Kentucky, of Mrs. H. H. Hill, for a number of years a resident of this
city. Mrs. Hill has not been in good health for some time, and last year
she went east in the hope of being benefitted. She visited her daughter
in New York state, and afterwards went to her old home at Falmouth,
Kentucky. For some years Mrs. Hill had been suffering from heart
trouble, and death finally resulted from that cause.
Mrs Hill came to Montana about 14 years ago from Moline, Ill., with her
husband, H. H. Hill. She leaves three children, George H., of this city,
Thomas, who is at falmouth, and a married daughter in New York, Mrs. May
Murphy. She leaves two brothers, former Governor S. T. Hauser, and H.
D. Hauser, of this City, and two sisters, Mrs. E. W. Knight and Mrs. J.
H. Barbour.
