Julia Seeley Casler Hamilton

Mrs. Julia Hamilton, age 93 years, one of the pioneer residents of Plainfield passed away Tuesday morning. Mrs. Hamilton had been in good health up until a short time ago when she fell, while getting a pail of water, and broke her hip. On account of her advanced age the break failed to knit properly and her condition gradually grew weaker until the end.

Julia P. Seeley, daughter of Mary and Caleb Seeley, was born in New York state, Aug 27, 1829, and died July 10, 1923, at the home of her son Edwin Casler in the town of Pine Grove, Wis. Her death was caused by a fall in which her right hip was broken. She had reached the advanced age of 93 years 11 months and 8 days. She was united in marriage to Charles Casler in the year of 1854 or 55. soon after this they came to Wisconsin where they made their home in Pine Grove. Their family consisted of four sons, Willas B. of Elyria, Nebraska, E.O. who lives in Pine Grove, Herbert H., who died in Plainfield, Wis. in 1907, and Charles H. who died in Pine Grove in 1917. Mr. Casler died in the service of his country during the Civil War. In 1871 Mrs. Casler was united in marriage to Charles Hamilton of Plainfield, Wis., who twenty-three years ago preceded her to the Great Beyond. Those left to mourn the loss of a mother and grandmother are two sons, ten grandchildren and a number of great grandchildren, besides the children and grandchildren of Mr. Hamilton who have helped to make her last years happy. Julia Hamilton was transferred to the membership of the Methodist Episcopal church of Plainfield in January 1872 and was ever active and faithful to the service of her church and her Master. In the pioneer days of Methodism many an itinerant preacher has found a hearty welcome in the home of Brother and Sister Hamilton. Mrs. Hamilton was a member of the W.C.T.U. and an enthusiastic worker in any movement for the uplift of her community. Her life was one of good works which will live on in the years to come . “Today the thought to us is given, That one more tie binds us to heaven.”
