Descendants of Simeon Hamlin
     Charles Edward Hamlin was born circa 1852 in New York.1 He was not with his father Alonzo in Spring Valley, Fillmore County, Minnesota, when Alonzo Hamlin died on 26 Apr 1913. According to Alonzo's obituary in the Spring Valley Mercury, he was "confined to his bed but three days," so the rapid decline of his health probably made it impossible for Charles Edward to get there from Los Angeles in time. Whether this was simply an unfortunate fact of life or the result of an estrangement is not known.2,4 He lived in Los Angeles, California, on 2 May 1913.2 He died before 28 Nov 1929.5
