    On Saturday morning, June 30, 1894, Mrs. Wealthy M. Hamilton passed gently and peacefully from earth to her heavenly home. She had been gradually sinking for some weeks and the end was not unlooked for.
    Mrs. Hamilton was the daughter of Daniel and Elizabeth Burdick. She was born in Lincklaen, Chenango county, N. Y., May 23, 1824, and was the seventh in a family of nine children, six of whom still survive. When she was quite young her father was accidently killed by a falling tree, leaving the mother with her large family of children in poverty. After a time the mother removed her family to Allegany county, N. Y., where three of Mrs. Hamilton's brothers still reside.
    September 19, 1843, the subject of this notice was united in marriage with Edward T. Hamilton, at Alfred Centre, N. Y., and the following year they removed to Milton, Wisconsin, making their residence here 50 years, giving them a place among the pioneer settlers of this part of Rock county.
    She had sixty years of Christian experience, having been a member of the S. D. B. church of Lincklaen and Alfred Centre, N. Y., and Milton and Milton Junction.
    The funeral services were held at the residence in Milton, Wisconsin, July 2, conducted by her pastor, G. W. Burdick, assisted by E. M. Dunn of Milton.
    A brother of Mrs. Hamilton, Rev. Chas. Burdick, a sister, Mrs. R. D. Saunders of Albion, and a grandson, Mr. Bond of Iowa, were among those who attended the funeral.
