            The old soldier A. A. Hamblin, at 515 North Twelfth street, was called to his reward Wednesday at the age of 78 years, 2 months and 10 days.  Members of McPherson Post G. A. R. attended, the services at the home, and several went to Liberty with the family where remains were interred by comrades.  Mr. Hamblin was born in Indiana and enlisted at 18 in the Ninety-seventh Indiana and served with credit.  He marched with the Fifteenth Army Corps and was with General Grant in many of the hardest fought engagements.  Twenty-three years ago he located in Liberty township where his wife, Sarah E.
