   Surrounded by the flowers which she had loved so much and the color and fragrance of which had brought brightness to her life, Edith Elizabeth Hammitt, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William H. Hammitt of Wilson avenue was buried Saturday afternoon in the family burying plot in the Belle Vernon cemetery, following services at her parents’ home. Two beautiful duets, “Some Day We’ll Understand” and “Safe in the Arms of Jesus” sung by Mrs. C. H. LaClair and Mrs. E. T. Chamberlin with Mrs. W. D.

Dolly, as she was known affectionately to all her family’s friends, had been an invalid all her life and during the latter years had been so great a sufferer that death became an angel of mercy. So great was the profusion of flowers that only part could be taken to Belle Vernon, one handsome basket being sent to the Third Presbyterian church, where Miss Lillian Hammitt, sister of the dead girl, is soprano soloist and choir leader, and another, a basket of lilies, to the Asbury church in which the Hammitt family belongs.

While sitting on a stone wall near Race Street and Lincoln Avenue, John Hampshire, 82 years old, war veteran and one of the most widely known residents of Connellsville and vicinity was stricken with apoplexy Wednesday and died a few minutes later.  Drs. L. P. McCormick and R. S.

Mr. Hampshire was born in Yorkshire, England, February 27, 1840 and in his youth learned the machinist trade.  In 1856 he joined the Twetfth Hussars which was soon after plunged into the thickest of the fighting in the Sepoy Rebellion.  He was with the first relief of Lucknow, capital of Ouida, Indian Provence and was in charge of a detechment which attacked the rebels at one point.  He was wounded twice during the engagement and his horse was killed.  He was captured but escaped and led his squad into the city.  The action of the British government in ordering leaders of the rebels blown from cannoncasued Mr. Hampshire to renounce his alligence to Great Britian as soon as his enlishtment closed.
He arrived in America the day Abraham Lincoln caled for volunteers.  He enlisted in the Navy and because of his fine Physique and military training he was soon made an officer.  He served throughout the Civil War and was wounded several times.  He tok part in the bombardment of Charleston which lasted 180 days.  When a Confederate privateer, St. Charles attempted to run the blockaide at Wilmington, NC, Mr. Hampshire jumped from the mast of the Black Hawk to the shrouds of the Confederate vessel and lashed the masts together.  He was the target for virtually 150 rifles and was wounded 12 times.  He was commended for heroric deeds by President Lincoln, received a Congressional Medal and was publicly cited by the late Queen Victoria at a review of the veterans of the English India Expedition at Buckingham Palace.
Following the war, Mr. Hampshire located to Philadelphia and after residing there for several years, he came to Dunbar where he secured employment as an engineer.  In 1880 he became superintendent of the Speers-White Sand Company, east of Connellsville.

Mrs. Jas. [Clarissa] Hanan, Stricken with heart failure Prominent resident of Yauger Hollow seized with attack of neuralgia of the heart and dies almost instantly. Funeral this afternoon. Survived by husband and seven children all of whom are well known.
Rev. F. C. Viele will conduct the funeral services.
Attacked with neuralgia of the heart Tuesday morning at 5 o'clock at her home in Yauger Hollow. Mrs. James Hanan, aged 74, died before medical aid could be summoned. She arose just a few minutes before 5 o'clock and when she returned to bed her husband noticed that she was breathing heavily. He became alarmed when she failed to respond to his question of how she was feeling. An investigation proved that she was unconscious. Dr. Means of Percy was called but life was extinct when he arrived. Neuralgia of the heart was given as the cause of her death.
Mrs. Hanan had been troubled with neuralgic pains in her left side and abdomen for some time and it was the opinion of the attending physician that the affliction caused her sudden death. Mrs. Hanan was well known in the vicinity in which she resided. She had made her home in that section of the county for some time and was highly respected. As a member of the Methodist Protestant Church of Percy she was an earnest Christian worker and will be much missed in that church.
She is survived by the following children: Mrs. Thomas Evans, Beaver Falls; Mrs. Thomas Holland, Percy; Mrs. Charles Crawford, Yauger Hollow; Mrs. David Newcomer, Lemont; William and James, of Yauger Hollow, and John at home.

bullet Francis Marion HANSEL died in 1863. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(52)

DIED
HANSEL-On the 2nd of July, Francis Marion Hansel, of company E, 140th Reg. Pa. Vol., Zook's Brigade, in the 21st year of his age.
Francis Marion Hansel, with many others saw with a sad heart the deplorable condition of our country. He saw our much loved and ever glorious flag had been insulted and trailed in the dust by rebel hosts, and immediately volunteered in the ranks of the Union army, bidding farewell to loving kindred, kind friends and the dear scenes of his childhood, to offer his life, if necessary, as a sacrifice upon the altar of our country, and most nobly did he fa__ his patriotic resolve. On the bloody field of Gettysburg, where the wrathful war cloud hung heavily and darkly over the field of blood and carnage, where the shouts of the victorious and the cries and moans of the wounded and dying were piercing the ears of the living; where the glare of the saber and the crack of the rifle rang out hideously upon the air; where the roar of the brazen mouthed messenger of death-the murderous cannon-the fiend-like shell, and death dealing grape were pouring forth the seeds of death and destruction into oar veteran ranks, young Hansel fell at his post, battling valiantly in the cause of his country, and died as the patriot di_s, in the cause of God and humanity.

James HARBAUGH Stone  ( -1865)

HARBAUGH— At Fort Strong hospital, March 28th, 1865, Mr. JAMES HARBAUGH, of Company E, 6th Pa. Heavy Artillery, late a resident of Dunbar Township, Fayette County Pa., where his parents now reside. Through the kindness of his comrades in arms, his brother, a member of the same company, is enabled to send his remains home to be interred among his native hills. A better and more willing soldier could not be found, always ready for his duty, and was beloved by both officers and men.

But, alas! He is gone to rest,
 Where many have gone before,
The Lord hath thought it best
 To call him from below.

 Beneath the trees in a soldier’s grave,
With the patriot dead doth sleep
 One of our numbers so true and brave,
While many friends for him do weep.
