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.
