OBITUARY ~ EMILY (GILPIN) HAMILTON

Emily Gilpin was born at Cazonovia, Illinois, on March 22, 1855, the daughter of L. A. and Amelia Gilpin. She grew to womanhood in the pioneer years of Illinois and on Feb. 8, 1878 was married to M. M. Hamilton.

Mr and Mrs. Hamilton resided in Woodford county, Illinois, until the spring of 1883 when they moved to a farm east of Clearfield. In 1890 they purchased a residence in Clearfield, which became their home for the remainder of their lives.

Mr Hamilton died December 26, 1936. Mrs. Hamilton's death occurred June 17, 1937, a little less than six months after that of her husband. She is survived by their three children, Mrs. Myrta Young of Clearfield and J. H. Hamilton and Arthur Hamilton, of Des Moines; four grandchildren and one great grandchild; three sisters, Mrs. Margaret Hildreth, Anthony, Iowa; Mrs. Alice Clark, Jackson, Miss.; and Mrs. Susie Lockwood, Dayton, Oregon.

Mrs. Hamilton was not able during recent years to take an active part in the social religious life of the community being practically confined to her home since 1932 due to a fall and injury.

On June 5, 1937, she again fell breaking her left thigh which injury resulted in her death on June 17. She was cared for during her last illness by her three children, friends and her neighbors.

In girlhood Mrs. Hamilton became a member of the Baptist church. Following her marriage she transferred her membership to the United Presbyterian church, Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton both becoming members of the Clearfield congregation on June 3, 1883.

Funeral services were held at the residence Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Rev H B. Hutchman, pastor of the United Presbyterian church had charge assisted by Rev. Watson of Creston. Interment was made in the Clearfield cemetery beside her husband.
