Death Record
Mrs. Arthur Hamilton died at her late residence, two and one half miles northeast of this city, at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, of uranic poisoning, following premature childbirth. The babe, which weighed but three and one half pounds, is still living. Her age was 20 years.
Funeral services were held at 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the residence, conducted by Rev. Crawford of Galesburg, formerly of Good Hope. Interment in the cemetery at Good Hope.
The death is particularly sad, coming as it did and with the babe left motherless. She was sick only about 12 hours and although receiving the best of medical skill the poison could not be allayed, convulsions resulting. She was only married last Christmas week, the ceremony being performed at Galesburg by Rev. Crawford, their former pastor. Her maiden name was Mary McLean, and she lived at Reed, a small town in Henderson Co. She leaves, beside her husband and babe, her parents, one brother, William, of Reed, and three sisters, Mrs. White of Kirkwood, Mrs. Harry Clover of Carmen, and Miss Lulu of Reed.
