David Hamilton, one of Lawrence county's prominent men, died at his residence in Plaingrove Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, after an illness of seven weeks, due to Bright's disease. He was well known in this city, and by all was respected and held in high regard, as he was a man of many fine characteristics. J. C. Offutt of North Jefferson street, is a brother-in-law. Mr. Hamilton was 78 years of age last November. He was a native of Washington county but had spent the greater part of his life in Plaingrove township.
