OBITUARY ~ MARION MEVILLE HAMILTON

The death of M. M. Hamilton Saturday afternoon was a shock to the community. Mr. Hamilton had been in ill health for several years, but only last Tuesday did his condition become alarming. His sons Boyd and Arthur were called from Des Moines Friday night to be at his bedside.

Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton have been residents of Clearfield 46 years and have many friends.

He was a member of the United Presbyterian church and as long as health permitted he was active in its work.

Three children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton, all of whom survive their father, and were at the bedside helping care for him to the last. His aged wife also survives.

Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton came to Iowa in March of 1883, and located on a farm one mile east of Clearfield. They were received into the membership of the Clearfield United Presbyterian church on June 3 of that year. In 1890 they left the farm and moved into Clearfield where they have since resided.

Mr. Hamilton's death occurred at his home Saturday December 26, 1936. He was the first of the family circle to be taken. He leaves to mourn his passing his beloved wife, Emily G. Hamilton, three children, Mrs. Myrta Young of Clearfield, J. Boyd Hamilton, and Arthur M. Hamilton, both of Des Moines three granddaughters, one grandson and one great granddaughter, nephews, nieces and a host of friends.
