---The Sedro-Woolley, Wash., Courier-Times, dated March 7, carried news of the death of Judge Emerson HAMMER, a former Lincoln resident, who died at the Sedro-Woolley hospital late at night, Wednesday, March 6, aged 83 years. His death was attributed to influenza. Funeral services were held at 2 o'clock on the afternoon of Saturday, March 9, in the Lemley chapel, with Sedro-Woolley Masons in charge and burial was made in the Union cemetery.
The Courier-Times, sent to J.H. TOOLE by his sister who resides in Sedro-Woolley, said that in the death of Judge HAMMER, the community had lost another of its valued pioneers. The Washington paper continued:
"Mr. Hammer, as state senator, pioneer lumberman and merchant of this city, had a long and useful life. He was born in Montpelier, Ind., Aug. 12, 1856, and received his education there. At an early age he engaged in business in Indiana, later moving to Kansas, where he served as postmaster of Lincoln, and later joined George GREEN in a mercantile firm in that city. They sold out in 1889 and came to Clear Lake, Wash.
"Soon after his arrival here, Mr. Hammer was employed in the Mortimer Cook store at Sterling, and later ran a logging camp in partnership with Frank Bradsbury. In 1891, Mr. Hammer established a store in Burlington where he remained until 1897 when he moved to Sedro-Woolley to enter the mercantile and shingle business. In 1903, the Union Mercantile Co. was established with Mr. Hammer as president.
Judge Hammer was elected state senator from the 32nd senatorial district in 1898, and in 1902 was re-elected for the term ending in January 1906. During his first term in the senate, he was chairman of the important appropriations committee and served on this same committee in 1903.
"Mr Hammer also served the City of Sedro-Woolley in many capacities as mayor, as a member of the school board, and as police judge, and Skagit county as treasurer, for several years.
"Mr. Hammer will long be remembered for his kindly nature, wise counsel and broad outlook. His long life was one of service until the last.
"He is survived by his wife, Isabelle; a son George, prominent local businessman; two daughters, Mrs. Rupert (Mary) Gale of Mercer Island, and Mrs. John (Joyce) Ruel of Forks, Wash.; and seven grandchildren: William, Arthur and Jack Gale of Mercer Island; George Emerson Hammer of Hawaii; Winifred Hammer, San Francisco; Margaret Hammer, University of Washington student; and Wayman Hammer, Sedro-Woolley high school student."
