I received the following in an e-mail from Jim Zimmermann on 1 August 1998

I am
writing you about my wife's uncle, Fred Andrew Etherton (18 Feb 1897-Sep
1985).  I didn't find him among your Ethertons but feel sure there is a link
somewhere since Fred lived all but his last years in So. Illinois.  Fred was
married to my wife's aunt, Lula Hiller, granddaughter of John Hiller who was a
younger brother of Peter Hiller Sr.  Fred was a big bear of a man, at least
6'5", but gentle as a lamb.  He and Lula lived in Carterville, on Michigan
Ave. I think.  Fred was a distributor of Standard Oil products including
heating oil.  After his retirement, he and Lula moved to Albuquerque, NM,
where he died.

Hiram A. Etherton was born abt. 1872 in Murphysboro, Jackson Co, IL (age is 32
on birth certificate of son Wiliam Edward).  His wife, Anna Mosely, was born
abt. 1874 in Clay City, Clay Co, IL (age is 30 of William's birth cert.)
Their children were Fred Andrew (b.18 Feb 1897), Zelma Francis (b.24 Dec
1898), Golda Marie (b.8 Oct 1900), Mary (b.26 Oct 1902), and William Edward
(b.13 Feb 1905).  All were born in Williamson County.  Birth dates per records
in Williamson County Clerk's office.

Fred died in Sep 1985 (SSDI) in NM.  He was cremated, his ashes were brought
to IL and buried at Oakland Cemetery, Carbondale, on 7 Oct 1985.  Zelma died
in May, 1990 (SSDI).  Mary died 27 Feb 1993 (SSDI).  William died in Nov 1974
(SSDI) of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  

Zelma was never married.  It is thought that Mary was married briefly, but
resumed using her maiden name.  Fred was married to Lula Elenor Hiller,
daughter of John Hiller and Mary E. Nelson.  I have no marital information on
Golda or William.

I also note that, according to your source, one of Aaron's older sisters,
Nancy Hiller, was 118 years old when she died (1854-1972).  The information I
have on Nancy Ann Hiller is that she was born 9 Nov 1851 in Jackson Co, IL.
and died 4 Feb 1924 in Makanda Twp, Jackson Co.  I got this data from Gary Lee
Hiller and have no other independent confirmation.
