Limestone, May 28. - When a man of sunny disposition, kind of heart, accommodating as a neighbor, esteemed in his citizenship, considerate in all his dealing, friendly in every relation of life, his word ever as good as his bond, departs from among us even for a better world, his passing is keenly felt far beyond the confines and circles of his immediate family, his death means personal loss to his fellow citizens. The late Miller Abram Hamler, of Limestone township, was that type of man, and Monday afternoon his mortal remains were laid to rest in Frogtown cemetery was a semi-holiday among our country folks. Mr. Hamler was a native of Limestone Township, he had lived in this valley his entire life, his genial manner and happy disposition were proverbial. He radiated good cheer in his house, in the community and in the Kingsville Methodist church. He served his township faithfully and efficiently in offices of public trust, and in matters pertaining to his township his state and county took an active part. He died at the age of 66 years and Limestone Township that will know Miller Hamler no more mourns his passing. The deceased was born in Limestone Township and died May 23, 1924 at the age of 66 years, 5 mos. He was a son of William and Martha Hamler, of sacred memory and pioneer residents of Clarion County. He married Elizabeth Jane Stahlman, thirteen children being born to this union. All living with the exception of one son, William, who was called Home September 5, 1920. The children surviving are: Mrs. John McMahon, Limestone, Mrs. James Pyle, New Bethlehem; Mrs. John Kirby, Chicago, Mrs. James McLaughlin, Summersville, Mrs. Jacob Clinger, Limestone, Quincy, Andrew, Elmer, John at home, George of Frogtown. Last March 19,1924, he married Mrs. Clara (Stahlman) Shoemaker, of Porter township who survives. Also by 19 grandchildren, three brothers and two sisters: Thomas and Vene Hamler, Llewellyn, Nebraska, McGruder Hamler, Corsica, Pa., Mrs. Myrtle Parker, Fairfield, Neb.; Mrs. James Snyder, Orville, Ohio. One sister entered the peaceful valley years ago, Adda Williamson, Humansville, O. The funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the Frogtown church, Rev. Parsons, of Kingsville M. E. Church officiating. Interment followed in the cemetery adjoining. One of the old settlers, who in the early days of farming toiled, slaved and whenever saved. He feared God and loved his neighbors, a fine specimen of christian manhood, he was respected by all who knew him. To his wife and children is extended our sincere sympathy. May God give the promise grace and strength. We are reminded there is "but a step between us and death." – John James
