An excerpt from Margaret (Hansen) Hamilton’s obituary from the Fort Wayne NEWS-SENTINEL, Thursday, August 3, 1978 states: “Mrs. Hamilton was born in 1877 at Grand Island, Neb. When she was about five years old, she was kidnaped and held for several hours by the Indians until her mother baked fresh bread to give them as ransom. When she was 17, she traveled by covered wagon to St. Joseph, Mo., then continued east by railroad. After moving to Fort Wayne ….” This time and place of birth agrees with the 1880 census.
