This came from an Indiana County newspaper in 1909:

Pioneer Residents of Town and  County Followed to Last Resting Places by
Many Friends - Other Deaths

(Undated very old newspaper clipping)

Mrs. Sarah Barr Campbell died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Nettie
C. Bennett, at Hillside, Pa., February 12, 1909.  The remains were
brought to Indiana on Sabbath and buried from the Presbyterian church.
A brief service was conducted by her pastor, Dr. Crawford, assisted by
Dr. Brownlee, at the First United Presbyterian church, and interment
followed in Greenwood cemetery.  Rev. Raber of the Derry Presbyterian
church held a very impressive service at the Bennett home the evening
previous.  Rev. Raber had visited her during her illness and bore
testimony to her happy christian life and her triumphant death.  Mrs.
Campbell was born February 26, 1819, on the Ross farm adjoining Homer
City.  She was a daughter of Robert A. Hamilton and Sarah Allison.
Robert Hamilton was an active church worker.  He was one of the first
elders of the Presbyterian church at Indiana and led the singing for
years.  Mrs. Campbell lived her entire life as a member of the Indiana
Presbyterian church.  She was baptized by the Rev. John Reed and at the
age of 14 she applied to be taken into full membership, but Rev. Reed
regarded that age as too young and bade her wait.  Two years later she
was received by the same pastor.  She united faith and works and was
never tired telling the old, old story every opportunity.  For years she
worked in the Twolick Hill Sabbath school with the late A. W. Wilson,
taking a lunch along to church and stopping off to teach a group of boys
or girls.  Mrs. Campbell liked to relate early church history, when they
met in the woods or tents and, later, in the old court house, till a
permanent church building was erected.  The Hamiltons can trace their
direct ancestors back to a Scotch settlement at Haw mill town, in
Scotland.  Their coat of arms was a saw mill.  James Hamilton came to
America about 1750.  His wife was a Miss Laughlin.  His sons were Hugh,
James, and William.  Those three sons served in the Revolutionary war,
under Washington.  At its close they came to Westmoreland county.  Hugh
married a daughter of Judge Moorhead of Greensburg and went to Mercer
county.  James never married.  His remains buried in the St. Clair
cemetery, Greensburg.  William married Jane Allison and settled on the
farm now owned by Archie Nichol of White township.  Here Robert
Hamilton, Mrs. Campbell€s father was born.  Those were trying times to
the early settlers.  The Indians made a raid on the settlement when
Robert was only two days old.  The mother and infant were taken by
horseback to the McConnaughey fort at Homer City. Later, Mr. Hamilton
bought the farm now owned by W. B. George in Center Township.  He had
five sons€James, Robert, Hugh, Thomas, and John€and four daughters,
Rebecca, Margaret, Nancy and Mary.  Robert Hamilton married Sarah
Allison whose father, Andrew Allison, was also a soldier in the
Revolutionary War.  They had eight children€Andrew, Hugh, James,
Stinson, Watson, Sarah, Jane and Nettie, and one daughter dying in
infancy.  Jane married John Amsbaugh and died in Illinois.  Stinson died
in early youth.  The others are living in Illinois, except Andrew, a
physician, who moved to South Dakota when it came into statehood.  Mrs.
Campbell€s husband, James Morrow Campbell, died in 1895 at the advanced
age of 94 years.  They are survived by four children€Nettie, wife of W.
E. Bennett of Hillside; Flora, a teacher in Allegheny county; John H.,
living east of town on the old homestead, and Annie, wife of Plymouth
Hamill, of near town.

A TRIBUTE TO JOAB MCCOLLUM

Brother McCollum was born October 19, 1807 in Pendleton District South
Carolina and died in great peace at his home near Morganville, Georgia
December 31, 1893.

He was twice happily married and both wives preceded him to the Land Of The
Good.

He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South.
He acted in good faith with the church for 72 years and most of that time he
acted in the capacity of a steward or a class leader.
He was always loyal to his church and preacher.

He moved with his first wife from South Carolina to Georgia in Dade County
over sixty years ago and since that time has been in the bounds of the
church and the Holston Conference.

He founded Sarah€s Chapel Church which became a prominent appointment on
the Trenton Circuit and many of our preachers will remember preaching there,
and knowing and loving Brother McCollum.

His mother Sarah, in whose honor the church was dedicated was the first
person to be buried in the cemetery there. The church house has been moved and
his remains will rest in the same place where the first church once stood.

He resided four years among the Indians as a pioneer minister and before
there were any church buildings he opened the door of his home and it
became a regular preaching place for all denominations.

He was the father of seventeen children, fifteen of whom grew to adulthood.
There are nine of these children dead and eight are are still living.
We can say without hesitation that his was a noble family.

Brother McCollum was one of the best citizens that Dade County ever had,
this is attested in the number who are attending this funeral.

I have never felt so free to talk in all my ministerial life, for there is
no doubt but that he was a true man, a faithful christian and a law abiding citizen.

When we all get up to that beautiful land beyond, we will find Brother
McCollum there, rejoicing with the saints at the throne of God.

To his children and many friends we tender our condolances an sympathy.

TRIBUTE OF RESPECT
In Memory Of Our Late Brother and Friend, John N. McCollum
He was born Oct 10, 1830 in Habersham County Georgia and moved with his
parents at the age of three years to Dade County, Georgia, where he lived until he
was grown.  At age 23 years he was married to Miss Sallie A. Ro(d)gers and to this union
was born 10 children, seven of whom are still living.

He professed faith to Christ at the age of 10 years and united with the
Methodist  Episcopal Church South, and lived a loyal, consecrated member
until God called him home to his reward on September 27, 1921.

He labored in the Master€s vineyard for over 80 years, he was depended on
always in his church. He was a constant reader of the Bible and was one of the best
posted men in the country. His charity took in the whole human race.
He was a loving companion and an affectionate father.
He was cheerful to the end and his friends were numbered by his
aquaintances.

We have known Uncle John, as he was always called, for nearly thirty years,
during which time we never saw anything in his life that was not commendable
in a christian and as a citizen he was loyal to his country.

In 1858 he moved to Pike County, Arkansas and in 1861 he went into the Civil
War and was made Captain of the first company from Pike County.
He was elected to the Arkansas legislature representing Pike County.

In 1869 he moved with his family to Izard County Arkansas near LaCrosse.

He joined LaCrosse Lodge No. 312 of Free and Accepted Masons as a charter
member and was honored to every station in the lodge which he filled with honor to
himself and credit to the fraternity. He has been an honorary member for several
years but his wise and safe council was sought by the brethern at all times.

His death is our loss but his gain.
To his children and relatives we would admonish them not to mourn as one who
has no hope, but to imitate the example that he set for them.
We know of a truth that if a tree be cut down, that it will sprout again.
We rejoice in the hope of that sprouting and in the resurrection of a new
life, to be transplanted in the likeness of Christ, there to dwell throughout the
ceaseless ages of eternity.

The lodge has lost a most estimable and worthy brother, but bow in reverence
to the will of him that doeth all things well and that this lodge put on the
usual badge of mourning for thirty days and that a page on our records be dedicated and
a copy of these resolutions be spread thereon and a copy be sent to the
Times for publication.
