Obituary for Mrs. Amanda Hamilton(wife
to George P. Johnson & William Hamilton) (Miss Amanda Elizabeth
MRS. AMANDA HAMILTON
Mrs. Amanda Elizabeth Hamilton, 88, years of age, passed away
Thursday, January 10, 1952, at her home in Holt, Missouri. She
was the daughter of the late William and Reta Brown and
was born at or near Holt, Missouri.
Miss Amanda Brown was married February 15, 1880, to George Johnson
and to this union eight children were born. Mr. Johnson passed
away leaving her with the children to rear. Surviving are: one
son, George E. Johnson, Kearney, Missouri, three daughters, Mrs.
Carrie Brophy, New Rochelle, New York. Mrs. Della Stevens, Holt
Missouri, Mrs. Emma Ferril, Kansas City, Mo.,. Also a Brother,
George Brown, Kansas City; twenty-one grandchildren; thirty-four
great-grand-children and ten great-great grandchildren. Mrs. Hamilton
perhaps has a larger number of grandsons and great-grandsons serving
and having served in the military service than any other grandmother
within a large area, there being eighteen including four grandsons
by marriage to her grand-daughters.
Mrs. Hamilton was one of those hardy industrious persons who was
happiest when she was up and doing for others. She bore her own
burdens and misfortunes with little or no complaint. She was a
Christian woman and a member of the Hold Christian Church, being
its last charter member.
Funeral services were conducted from this church Saturday afternoon
by Rev. Baxter Waters, a long time friend of the deceased.
Interment was made in the old Haynesville Cemetery.
A truly good woman; who could translate her Christianity into
daily living in a larger measure than many have been able to do:
has been called home to the eternal peace and rest she so richly
deserved, by a Merciful and Just God.
