Husband of Catherine M. Burdick
**************************
"The Weekly Telephone", Milton Junction, Wisconsin, Thursday, March 26, 1896, p 4. Horace G. Hamilton, one of Rock county's pioneer settlers, died Tuesday, aged 86. He was born in Brookfield, N. Y., Feb. 18, 1810, and came to Milton, in 1842. Before coming to Milton, in 1834, he married Miss Catherine M. Burdick. The union was blessed with five children, three of whom, with the wife, are still living - Mary, the wife of Charles Goodrich; Emery M., better known as Major Hamilton, of New York, and Mrs. Goodell Foster of Independence, Kansas. Madeline, the wife of W. H. Coon, died six years ago in Beatrice, Neb. Arthur was the first who enlisted from Milton for service in the late war, and participated in every engagement with his regiment until the battle of Antietam, where he was killed. He was the first one from Milton to lose his life, and in his memory the G. A. R. Post of Milton was named. There are also eleven grand-children and three great-grand children. Mr. Hamilton has filled various local offices, including that of assessor and justice of the peace. He was a member of the S. D. B. Church. For fifty-four years he has witnessed the growth and development of Rock county, and has borne his share in the work of progress. The pioneers are one by one being called from earth, and few now remain to tell the story of pioneer days. The funeral will take place from his late residence to-morrow (Friday) at 10 o'clock, Rev. S. L. Maxson officiating.
