Hinman, Ira 1851-1931 Morris Obituary

Ira Hinman Dies

Ira Hinman, son of Miles and Alvira (Russell) Hinman entered into rest early Sunday morning after a lingering illness of many months' duration.
Mr. Hinman, one of eight children, was born December 6, 1851, on the old Hinman homestead, near the Buck schoolhouse, in the town of New Lisbon, where he spent his boyhood.
In early manhood, Mr. Hinman was united in marriage to Miss J. Frances Carr and their entire married life was spent in Morris and vicinity.
After Mrs. Hinman's death, which occurred February 15, 1927, the deceased made his home with Mr. and Mrs. Homer J. Davis, where he was tenderly cared for through long months of intense suffering by Mrs. Davis.
Mr. Hinman was a very hard working man as long as his health would permit, and he took an active interest in everything pertaining to the development of Morris. For 17 years he was sexton of Hillington cemetery and it was largely due to his untiring efforts that so many of the lots are now endowed.
The funeral services will be held at his late residence on upper Church street on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. F. G. Leonard of the Universalist church officiating, with interment in the family plot in Hillington cemetery.

There are Find A Grave memorials for his parents at Hillington cemetery.
Both their death dates are listed as April 21, 1885.
