Hamilton, T.M. – Obituary

Wallowa, Wallowa County, Oregon

T.M. Hamilton, a well known and highly respected citizen of Wallowa, died at his home on Bear Creek, last Saturday. Mr. Hamilton had been troubled with heart disease for nearly three years and was obliged to keep his room. Friday he suffered a paralytic stroke and death came at about one o’clock Saturday morning. Although he retained consciousness to the last, he did not seem to realize that he was paralyzed.

Thomas M. Hamilton was born in Vinton County, Ohio, Aug. 23, 1832; died Aug. 30, 1902; age 70 years, 7 days.

He was married in May, 1853, to Miss Mary Bowlin. Eight children blessed this union, six of which are living. They are; Wm. Hamilton, Mrs. Virgil Pratt and Mrs. Wm. McGee of Wallowa; Mrs. Wm. Briggs of Boise; Vance Hamilton of Glenn’s Ferry, Ida; and Mrs, Jas. Frazier of Missouri. All of the children except Mrs. Frazier were in attendance at the internment, which took place in Wallowa cemetery, about 4:30 Sunday Evening.

They laid him to rest in the cold, silent ground; they laid him to rest ‘neath the flower strewn mound. But the soul took its flight to the mansions above; it will never know night in the Palace of love.
