Obituaries - Malinda HAMILTON

Macomb Journal, Thursday , February 3, 1881
    Mrs. Malinda, wife of Levi Hamilton, died at the residence of their son, Uriah, in Shenandoah, Iowa on the 21st day of January, 1881. Her maiden name was Creel, and she was born in Columbia, Ky. Dec. 9, 1809, and was married with Levi Hamilton, Oct. 25, 1825. On Oct. 1833 they left their native state and settled
in Walnut Grove in this county, where they resided for a great many years. About two years ago, they went with their son, Uriah, to Shenandoah, Iowa. The deceased was an earnest worker in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, of which she was a member for more than half a century, and there are few people left among those who were here in the early days of the settlement of this county, who will not remember the kind and Christian like hospitality of Mrs. Malinda Hamilton.
