| January/February 1986

EDGAR M. HILL, 80, of Hopkinsville, Kentucky died May 12th of a heart attack following surgery.

Edgar farmed most of his life and with his father owned and operated five steam engines. He was the last one to thresh with steam in Christian County, Kentucky using a 22 HP double Keck-Gonnerman through 1954. Up to about a year ago he had a 50 HP portable Frick and worked as a machinist for Pennyrile Machine and Central Tool and Die.

His wife Helen made him a steam quilt which was on page 12 of the March/April 1985 issue of IMA. Edgar was a Director Emeritus of the Tenn.-Ky. Thresherman's Assn. and always fired Newt Howell's Keck-Gonnerman engine on the sawmill at the show.

Edgar was always ready to help someone. He will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.
