Dr. Homer McGill and Donie were active in the community. Dr. McGill wanted to get a high school in Clarksburg. Donie told Thomas Wilson it was not good to bring up children in a town where there was no church. This suggestion received a responsive hearing from Christians who had been meeting with Church of Christ members in the rural communities and a small group began meeting in the old school house in Clarksburg. In 1916 when the new brick high school was built the church bought the old school house and Dr. McGill was appointed one of its trustees.

Denton of Holladay officiating. Dr. McGill died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. R.B. Wilson, at Clarksburg, Thursday night following a three week's illness. He was one of the state's oldest practicing physicians in line of service having practiced medicine for sixty-three years. He began practice at the age of 21 years. The son of the late Sarah Meals and E.T. McGill, Dr. McGill was born in Henderson County on July 3, 1857. His early education was received at Huntingdon schools and he was graduated from the old Nashville School of Medicine, now the University of Tennessee.
