      (2) OBITUARY:
      "Obituary of Margaret J. Hamilton, Citrus Co. Chronicle, Inverness,FL, Thurs., 18 Sep 1941, p. 8, datelined Holder, Fla., Sept. 9, 1941:
      Margaret J. Hamilton, daughter of Jeremiah and Permelia Woodrow, wasborn in Jackson Co., Ohio, Sept. 4th, 1863. Departed this life in theOcala Hospital Sept. 8, 1941, age 78 years and 4 days. She was thesecond oldest of a family of seven children. Three brothers and onesister having preceded her, while two brothers still remain, George B.Woodrow of Holder, Fla., and Arthur E. Woodrow of Wellston, Ohio, bothof those being with her to the end.
      Mrs. Hamilton was raised in Ohio but left that state at the age oftwenty-two, going from there to Neb. to be with her older brother whohad gone there a couple of years before. They each took up a landclaim and proved their rights according to the laws of Nebraska. Alittle later they went to Cheyenne Wells, Colo., where she met andmarried Mr. H.S. Hamilton. To this union was born one son, HarryWoodrow Hamilton, who sleeps in a soldier's grave in your fair City.Mr. Hamilton died a number of years ago, and in 1932 Mrs. Hamiltonwith her son came to Florida to live with her brother, G.B. Woodrow.
      She has been a constant sufferer from the awful pain of arthritis fora number of years. About the 10th of June she fell, resulting in afractured vertebra causing her removal to the Ocala Hospital where shebravely and so patiently endured her suffering to the end. She was atrue and devoted wife, a kind and loving mother, an adorable sister, agood neighbor, and a true God-loving Christian. Her church membershipstill remains in the Methodist Church in Cheyenne Wells, Colo. Shewill be be missed and mourned by legions of friends, as to know herwas to love her.
      She lived for those who loved her,
      Whose hearts were kind and true
      For the Heaven that smiled above her,
      And awaiting her spirit too.
      She has gone to join the Angels ---
      She could hear them calling, "Come Home!"
      And God always has a place for such dear ones,
      So he said to Sister Margaret, "Come!"
      She loved to work with flowers.
      She loved to watch them grow.
      But today she is happily viewing
      The flower gardens in Heaven. We know.
      As I stood by her bedside Sunday evening, bathing her poor littlepain-racked face and hands with cold wet cloths, I fancied I couldhear her silently whispering this prayer.
      Oh, Come! Angel band, Come, and around me stand,
      Oh, bear me away on your snow white wings
      To my immortal Home.
      And, then again, I fancied I could hear the answer to her prayer.
      Oh, yes we have come with our Angel band,
      And together around you we do stand.
      We will bear you away on our snow white wings
      To your immortal Home.
      Thus, it seems to me was the passing of our Dear little Sister fromher Earthly, to her Eternal Home, where pain and suffering never come.
      Written by her brother, A. E. Woodrow, of Wellston, Ohio.[Transcribed 12 Sep 2008 by P William Smith, Ridgefield, Washington]"[Transcribed for these notes on 14 Sepember 2008, by SLJuhl, Compiler& Family Genealogist;]
