Bro. D.E. Kirby
From Labor to Rest April 11th, 1882

WHEREAS, in the dispensation of our heavenly father's immutable law ordained for the control of mankind in all conditions and circumstances, our dear friend and Brother, late a member of Henri Lodge, No 190 A.F., & A.M., has been stricken down in death and called to the land beyond the shadows, whence none return and to which all must finally go; for "Who is there that liveth and shall not see death." Therefore

Resolved. That we deeply deplore the untimely death of our beloved brother, whose councils we now miss in our deliberations, whose sterling qualities of head and heart we shall no longer enjoy, except in grateful remembrance.

Resolved. That we offer his widow and friends our sincere condolence, and, believing we may answer affirmatively the question "If a man die, shall he live again?" we invite them to join with us in the belief that we shall again meet our departed brother, husband, friend, in that condition where the casualty of death never occurs.

Resolved. That these resolutions be spread upon the Lodge book, a copy published in the Tonganoxie MIRROR and a copy presented to the widow of our decease brother.

Obituary with surnames HAMBLIN submitted by Inger S. Orr. Date of death Wednesday, June 20, 1889
Obituary, Leavenworth TIMES, June 22, 1889, p. 4

Died at her residence in this city on Thurs., the 20th inst. MRS. HANNAH M. HAMBLIN, aged 71 years. Mrs. HAMBLIN came to this city in the troublesome early times of 1858 from Burlington, Vermont, and has resided here ever since. For many years ill health has prevented her from putting into public practice the social and religious duties which were always dear to her heart. But she was always ready to sympathize with, advise and aid so far as she could the benevolences and reforms of the day.

Although retiring in her disposition, and simple in her manners, she made many friends and drew around her in close intimacy a choice circle of hearts who will sadly miss the kind encouraging word, and sincere advice of an unselfish friend. To the young she was a loyal, loving mother heart. Always in sympathy with their ambitions and desires, she knew no failure. 'Be true to yourselves' was her oft repeated counsel to them as they laid before her their hopes and ambitions. Her death was as peaceful as her life had been. At the close of a bright summer day, this sincere, loyal soul passed from earth's cares away, leaving behind her the sweet fragrance of life full of unselfishness and kind deeds.

PIONEER GONE

Hiram Hamblin, Who Came to Leavenworth in 1856, Passes Away

Shortly after 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon Hiram Hamblin passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Brown, on Walnut street. He had been feeble for some time and died from diseases incident to advanced age.

Mr. Hamblin was a native of Vermont, and came to Kansas at an early day. He has been a resident of Leavenworth since 1856, and was well known to all the old settlers. He was a contractor most of his active life, and put up many large buildings. Among the buildings he erected in Leavenworth was Laing's hall. Right after the Chicago fire he went to that city and put up several large buildings. He has lived in retirement for the last fifteen years.

Mr. Hamblin leaves one son, Allie, and two daughters, Mrs. M. E. Brown and Miss Emma Hamblin, and a number of grandchildren.

The time for his funeral has not been determined as yet, but it will likely take place on Sunday afternoon.

(There is no date on the copy I was given, but he died 26 Dec 1895.)

Obituary with surnames VOSS submitted by Joni lauzon. Date of death Tuesday, November 26, 1897
The funeral for Fritz Voss, killed Friday night by an accident on Third street, will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the German Lutheran Church. Voss was an odd character. He was born in Germany November 23, 1853 and was 41 years old at the time of his death.

He came to this country in 1872 and went to work for Peter Schott and later was employed by John P. Wilson. When he left Wilson he became driver for Rolfling and Co. and remained with that firm 25 years and met his death while in their service.

A blighted romance in his early youth soured Voss, and during the remainder of his life he shunned society and contented himself with few acqaintances. He always had money and was of a saving disposition. He paid cash for a half interest in the livery business of Keller and Co.

While nothing definite is known of his family, except he had a brother in the old Country.

He had two brothers, Henry who was still in Osnabruck Germany and Eberhard Voss who retrieved his body and removed him for burial in atchison County Missouri.

November 28 1897, Leavenworth Times, and additional research, my uncle Fritz, or Friederich V. Voss.
