Obituaries - Ellis HAMILTON

Macomb Journal, February 1895
Died in Arkansas
    Ellis Hamilton, who went from his home in Good Hope to Arkansas and thence to Texas for his health in the early winter, and whose brother, J.F. Hamilton, went to his sick bed a few weeks later, word coming that the patient was sinking slowly -- died Thursday last in Arkansas, at Hazen, we believe and the body was brought home Sunday. The last news the Journal had from Mr. J.F. Hamilton they were in Texas, but with the intention of starting north when the patient was able. They had doubtless come as far as Arkansas, where the brother died. Mr. Hamilton was met at Bushnell yesterday by the Odd Fellows lodge of Good Hope, who
took charge of the remains of his dead brother. The funeral will be held tomorrow at Good Hope. Deceased was a single man and about thirty years of age.
