Samuel Edward Hulstine Obituary

Clark County Clipper, April 30, 1908


Samuel Edward Hulstine was born near Harrisburg, Pa., December 26, 1858, died at the St. Francis hospital in Wichita, Kansas, April 25, 1908, being at the time of his departure, 49 years and 4 months old.

He came to Clark county, Kansas, in 1884; and except one year, lived on his farm 4 miles west of Ashland until the time of his death.  He was united in marriage to Sarah E. Runkle, February 24, 1886.  To this union were born three children, all of whom are still living, Ethel, Murlin and Leland.

Our brother's health had been failing for several months and a long battle was fought for his recovery, but it availed nothing except to prolong his life.  So in spite of all loving relatives and skillful physicians could do, he went away, leaving a wife, three children and a host of neighbors and friends behind.  When he learned that he was no longer for this world he sought and accepted the Lord the best that he knew how, and received the rite of baptism.  He was conscious up to the very last and said he was ready to go.  We have every reason to believe that the Lord accepted him, and that now his redeemed spirit is with the Christ who died for him and all of us.
