Zeri Hamilton, Murderer and Suicide, and His Little Girl Baby

Buried in One Grave at Mountain View Cemetery Today

Side by side little Vida Hamilton and her father, Zeri Hamilton, the man who slew the child and then killed himself, were interred in one grave at Mountain View Cemetery this afternoon.

The services were conducted at the parlors of Reinhard & Co. and there were few present to shed a parting tear over the remains of the innocent little babe and the unhappy man who sent both into eternity. Rev. Charles L. Mears conducted the ceremony and spoke briefly over the remains.

Mrs. Hamilton continues to improve but today was considerably agitated over the interment of the man who was once her husband and the child. She was deeply attached to the little girl and has grieved greatly over the tragical death that befell the little one. She persisted in her request that both be interred together, saying that her Zeri would have wished it thus.

Daughter of Phobe Elizabeth Mankins Hamilton Foster Born: 09 Jun 1876
