Tuesday morning the body of Ralph Hamilton arrived from a Florida Camp, he too, dieing from pneumonia following an attack of Spanish Influenza.
Ralph left in June with a quota of Wallowa County boys for Benson Polytechnic School, Portland, for special training for the army. He was stationed in the Remount Depot near Jacksonville, Florida.
Funeral services were conducted Wednesday from the Methodist church. The funeral services were conducted by the Knights of Pythias and the members of the state militia from Enterprise.
Our boys are going one by one and we realize the prices of war all the more as our own are taken. Four Wallowa boys have now died in the service. Ralph was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hamilton of Wallowa.
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hamilton went to La Grande Monday to meet the body of their son Ralph.
