Death of Mrs. Hamilton.

After a lingering illness of several weeks, Mrs. Sarah H. Hamilton died in our city on Saturday morning at 10 o’clock a. m.  Her funeral Sunday afternoon was largely attended, the Baptist church being crowded to its utmost extent.  Dr. Tucker who preached a very touching sermon, took for his text the last words of the departed lady: “Bless the Lord, oh my soul and all that is within me, bless His Holy Name.”  The remains were then followed by a very long procession and interred in Oconee Cemetery.  Mrs. Hamilton was a native of Columbia county, Georgia, but for many years past she has been a resident of our city, where, surrounded by her children and friends, she lived the last days of her life in comfort and in peace.  The beautiful consummation of her life was but a fit crowning to so useful and Christian like a career, where her influence and gentleness had in all places been experienced, and whose death and surcease will every where be felt.  To her children and grandchildren, who had repleted her old age with happiness and joy, and who now gathered around their venerable parent, ere she departed to that “invisible country far away,” she blessed the name of her Maker in her very latest breath, and then motioned them above.  She had, indeed been a blessing and a comforter, not only to large and loving family, but to a large circle of acquaintances and friends with whom we deeply sympathize in their sad bereavement.  Seventy nine years of life had been allotted to the deceased lady, and the lost pleiad of her four score years wanting indeed on earth, will dawn far more gloriously and bright in that Beautiful Land,
Where no storms ever beat on the glittering strand,
Where the years of eternity roll.
Athens Georgian.

Mrs. Hamilton was the mother of Col. Harris’s first wife, and the grandmother of Mrs. Dr. Best. Mrs. T. W. Milner and J. W. Harris, Jr.
