Northern Christian Advocate
September 25, 1861
HAMILTON.--Mr. George A. Hamilton died at South Butler, New York, April 4, 1861, aged 45 years. The subject of this memoir was born in Montgomery Co., New York; but he spent the most of his life in South Butler, where he was held in high esteem as a valuable citizen and Christian. He was converted at the age of seventeen and soon after became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, within whose pale he labored efficiently as a private member, class-leader, and Sunday-school superintendent. He was an invalid for nearly half his life, suffering at times intensely from both a spinal affliction and a difficulty with the lungs. The last stages of his disease assumed the worst form of pulmonary consumption. He suffered with Christian patience and resignation, and died in peace--in triumph. Brother Hamilton was a man of fine literary and poetic taste, and an admiring observer of nature. A few weeks before his death, he published a volume of original poems, entitled, "Sunshine through the Clouds; or the Invalid's Offering." His poems are beautiful in conception and language, and many of them have elicited high admiration wherever read,--He has left an affectionate wife, to whom he was devotedly attached, and upon whom his death falls as the great sorrow of her life. May the widow's God abundantly support and comfort her in this sad bereavement.
