McGILL, Leonidas Hogg - Lon H. McGill, aged 77 years, a prominent and widely known Northwest Arkansas attorney, died at the family home on West Twelfth St., Bentonville this morning at 10:15 o'clock. His death was not unexpected as Attorney McGill had been ill the past two months and for the past ten days had been gradually sinking. All of his children were at his bedside during his last hours. Mr. McGill was dean of attorneys of Benton County and probably the oldest practicing lawyer in Northwest Arkansas. He was admitted to the bar in Bentonville in 1876. For many years he was a member of the law firm of McDaniel and McGill and later with McGill and Lindsey. A few years ago the firm name was changed to McGill & McGill, J.T. McGill entering the practice of law with his father. Attorney McGill practiced law for 55 years. He practiced in Ozark, Clarkeville and Morillton as well as in Bentonville. During this time, through his integrity and knowledge of the law, he built up a large practice. Out of respect Judge Lee Seamster adjourned chancery court today. Leonidas Hogg McGill was born in Kentucky Feb. 22, 1854 and when a young man came to Bentonville and studied law. On December 26, 1881 he was married in Bentonville to Miss Mittie Peel, daughter of the late Congressman Sam W. Peel, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. Peter Carnahan. To them were born ten children, nine of whom are now living. Beside his widow the following children survive him: Mrs. Elizabeth Bohart and Mrs Katherine Dickson of Fayetteville; Mrs. Mary Davis of the home; J.T. McGill of the home; L.H. McGill, Jr., of Los Angeles; Charles McGill of Ft. Smith; Sam McGill of Tulsa and Wn. and Berry McGill of Needles, Calif. Funeral services for Mr. McGill will be held at the First Presbyterian Church Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The Rev. Arthur Henderson will have charge of the service, assisted by the Rev. Stanley Hayden and Rev. Dana Dawson of Ft. Smith.

Leonidas Hogg McGill
Funeral services were held for L.H. McGill, prominent Northwest Arkansas attorney, of this city, at the First Presbyterian Church on last Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The church was filled to capacity with friends and relatives who wished to pay their last respects to one who had lived among us so many years in a modest and quiet way. Many and beautiful were the floral tributes. Leonidas Hogg McGill was born Feb. 22, 1854 in Kentucky, his parents being Samuel and Elizabeth Hogg McGill, pioneer southern families. The family lived for many years in Gilmer, Tex. from whence Mr. McGill came to Bentonville at the age of 19 years to enter the law school of Morgan H. Looney who conducted the school in this city. His marriage with Miss Mittie Peel, daughter of the late Congressman Samuel W. Peel took place Dec. 26, 1881, the late Rev. Peter Carnahan, Cumberland Presbyterian minister, performing the ceremony. Practicing law for over 50 years in Morrilton, Clarksville, and Bentonville he had his law office continuously for over 42 years in its same location over the First National Bank, facing south Main Street. Rev. R.S. Hayden, pastor of the M.E. Church, South and Rev. Dana Dawson of Fort Smith, conducted the funeral services. Burial took place in the City Cemetery.
