Obituary ELLA ROSS HAMILTON May 1932
Sudden death of Mrs. Ella Hamilton - Another distressing sudden death occurred in Seaforth on Wednesday morning, when Mrs. Ella Hamilton passed away at the home of her brother, Dr. H.H. Ross. Mrs. Hamilton had apparently been in her usual health when she retired on Tuesday night, but on Wednesday morning, about eight o'clock it was found she had passed away in her sleep. The deceased was the youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Ross, of Brucefield, where she was born and where her early life was spent.
In 1908, she was united in marriage to Dr. B.H. Hamilton and resided for a short time at Belgrave before removing to Sault Ste. Marie, which was her home until a year ago. Following the death of her husband at Moose Factory, on May 25, 1931, Mrs Hamilton came to Seaforth and has since made her home with her brother, Dr. Ross.
She is survived by two sons and a daughter. Ross who is in his second year in Medicine at the University of Toronto, and Clayton and Helen of Seaforth. She is also survived by two sisters and two brothers, Mrs, William Berry, of Brucefield; Mrs. D.B. McEwen of Winnipeg; Mr. A.J. Ross of Wingham, and Dr. H.H. Ross of Seaforth.
The funeral will be held from the home of her brother on Friday afternoon, after which interment will be made in Maitlandbank Cemetery. The pallbearers will be Messer, John Beattie, Harry Stewart, John Cardno, Robert Deveraux, R.C. Jackson, and J.J. Cluff.
