Mr. Hamarstrom at Rest
Following close upon the demise of his beloved wife, who was laid to rest in Oak Hill cemetery only six weeks ago, Frank A. Hamarstrom was called to eternal rest last Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.
Born in Ostra Gotland, Sweden, July 18, 1837, he had reached his 81st year.
More than 50 years ago the aged couple were united in marriage in Sweden. Seven children came to bless their union of whom five survive. Two daughters, Mrs. Wm. Camph and Mrs. Jno. Nordmark were privileged to attend the aged father in his last sickness.
Thus have passed from our community two of our oldest citizens; well beloved by all who knew them, who also join the group of intimate friends, who paid last honors to the dead in extending their sympathy.
