Mrs. Hamar of West Lebanon, aged about 68 years, mother of the Hamar brothers, died at her home in the above place early Monday morning. Mrs. Hamar was apparently in her usual good health and went to church on Sunday. In the evening she was taken ill with a pain between her shoulders and grew rapidly worse until death. The funeral services, conducted by Rev. Myers, of this place were held Tuesday afternoon, when interment was made in the West Lebanon Cemetery, her many friends gathering to pay the last sad rights to the dear departed one. Isaac Miller, well known throughout the county and for many years a resident of this place, died in Washington, D. C., where he has been engaged in business for a number of years, last Friday. The funeral services, we understand, took place Sunday. The subject of this sketch was the fourth daughter of Frank and Hattie Bartlett. She was born Feb. 15th, 1884 near Rainsville, Warren County, Ind., and departed this life Saturday evening, Nov. 10th, 1894, aged 10 years, 8 months and 25 days. Amy had been sick for nearly two years beginning with la grippe and finally ran into Bright's disease and then into dropsy from which she died. She was bright and patient to the last; she always greeted everyone with a smile and when asked how she felt, always replied, "I feel better." She was a real lover of flowers, the last work she did was to sit up in bed and make a bunch of roses, seemingly to know that she was to leave us, she made a bouquet of paper flowers for each one of the family. She was a kind loving daughter and sister and a dear little friend to everyone. On Thursday at noon while eating dinner and the rest of the family were eating she turned to her mama and said, "I don't know what to do," and then kind and loving hands commenced to do all that could be done, but to no avail. The angels had called for her to come and she obeyed as she always did her parents. She will be sadly missed by all that knew her but greater by her mother who never left her but always sat by her bedside day and night, trying to ease every pain and wait upon her. Funeral services were held at the family residence on the 12th of November, conducted by Rev. Wm Wilmer. Remains were laid to rest in the Bartlett Cemetery in Pine Township.
