SAD COINCIDENCE. Father and Son Buried at Same Hour A sad coincidence in connection with the funeral of a well-known Parramatta resident on Monday was the fact that his son was being buried at the same hour at Ganmain. The father, Mr. SAmuel Stewart Hamilton of Anderson-street Parramatta, passed away from natural causes; but the son, Mr Claude Stewart Hamilton, met his death by being drowned in the Murrumbidgee. The latter had gone out in a boat with a companion for the purpose of fishing, but unfortunately the boat struck a snag and capsized. The men struck out for opposite sides of the river, but Hamilton never reached the bank. His body was subsequently recovered from the water. He was the third son of the late Samuel H. Hamilton, and was a married man with five children. His home was at Ganmain. The father, whose death occurred on Saturday, was a native of Scotland, and was in his 76th year. He came to Australia as a child, and for many years was in the permanent way branch of the Railway Department. For some time he was employed at Epping, and upon his retirement he removed to Parramatta where he had resided for the past fourteen years. He was possessed of a cheery temperament and was held in high esteem by a large circle of friends. Mr. Hamilton sen. is survived by a widow, three sons, Messrs. Samuel, William and Percy Hamilton, and two daughters, Mrs. Christina Russell of Bathurst and Mrs Mary Purnell of North Sydney. The funeral of the father left his late residence Anderson-street Parramatta on Monday afternoon, for the westenr-road cemetery, where the interment took place. The son's body was interred at Gamain.
