Death of Levi Hamilton - From By-Stander of yesterday
    Levi Hamilton, a well known early pioneer of this county, died recently in Iowa. Mr. Hamilton came to McDonough county in 1883 (should be 1833), and settled in Walnut Grove. He was for many years known throughout the county as an upright and honest man. He was a leading member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, and many are the people in this county who in time past have enjoyed the christian hospitality of the deceased and his wife at their home at the old camping ground in Walnut Grove. At the ripe old age of 80 years he has been called from the labors of this world to rest.
