  • Scrapbook*: "DR. DUER IS TO WED MISS CORBIT
       "Wedding Fixed For October at Home of Bride’s Parents
       "PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 27 [1907]—Dr. Edward L. Duer, of 1606 Locust street, although seventy-two years of age and a widower for 27 years, had become engaged to marry Miss Louise Corbit, daughter of Daniel W. Corbit, a niece of ex-United States Senator Higgins and a member of a prominent Delaware family residing at Odessa. Her age is half the doctor’s.
       "Dr. Duer and Miss Corbit became engaged last spring and the news, kept a secret since then by a few of their most intimate friends, has just transpired.
       "Dr. Duer’s son and daughter were enthusiastic advocates of the match. The son, Dr. Naudain Duer, is 40, about six years older than his future stepmother.
       "Doctor Duer, Sr., is residing during the summer at Bryn Mawr with his daughter, Mrs. Councill, the wife of Dr. Malcolm Councill. He is a “gentleman of the old school,” and carries his age so remarkably well that he looks scarcely more than 50. He has known Miss Corbit since she was a baby, and has always been on most intimate terms with her parents. His first wife, who was Miss Naudain, was a first cousin of Miss Corbit’s mother and a second cousin of Miss Corbit’s father.
       "Bride-to-be of Prominent Family.
       "Miss Corbit’s father is one of the managers of the New Castle County Workhouse, below Wilmington, and a trustee of Delaware College, at Newark.
       "Miss Corbit’s mother was a sister of ex-Senator Higgins. An uncle, John C. Higgins, is United States Consul at Dundee, Scotland. Governor Lea, of Delaware, and Judge Spruance, of Wilmington, are relatives of Miss Corbit, who is also a descendant of Dr. Arnold Naudain, a State Senator of Delaware.
       "Miss Corbit was educated by governesses and at Miss Richmond’s private school in Walnut lane, Germantown. She is literary, artistic and domestic in her tastes. She is one of two children, her sister being Mrs. Frederick William Curtis, of Newark, Del.
       "Marriage in October.
       "After the death of Dr. Duer’s first wife, his two children lived for a time at Miss Corbit’s home at Odessa, under the care of her mother, the three children being taught there by the same governess.
       "The marriage will take place at Odessa, probably on October 3.
       "Doctor Duer is chief of the obstetrical department at the Presbyterian Hospital and has a large practice. He was graduated from Yale in 1857, and from the Medical Department of the University of Pennsylvania in 1860. During the Civil War he was an assistant surgeon of the Union Army. He is a member of the Union League, University, Rittenhouse and Country Clubs, and was formerly president of the Philadelphia Medical Club."10
  • Obituary*: "DR. EDWARD L. DUER.
       "Dr. Edward L. Duer, the retired Philadelphia physician who died yesterday at the home of his father-in-law, Daniel W. Corbit at Odessa, has lived in Delaware since his retirement from active practice, five years ago. He was 80 years old and was long distinguished in Philadelphia medical circles as a gynecologist and obstetrician with a large practice among the wealthy and socially prominent. Dr. Duer’s first wife was a Miss Naudain of Delaware by whom he had two children, Dr. S. Naudain Duer of Philadelphia and Mrs. Helen Councillor, wife of Dr. Malcolm Councillor of Bryn Mawr. He remained a widower for many years after the death of his first wife but in 1907 he married Miss Louise Corbit of Odessa, sister of Mrs. F. William Curtis of Wilmington, his second wife being the second cousin of his first wife. Despite his age he was young in spirit, with a very wide circle of friends. His funeral will take place at Odessa tomorrow at 1.30 o’clock with interment in the Corbit private cemetery.
       "Dr. Duer was graduated from Yale in 1857 and from the Medical School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1860.
       "For a year he served as a resident physician in the Philadelphia Hospital and in 1862 he was appointed obstetrician there, retaining that position until 1880. He served later in the same capacity at the Polyclinic and Maternity Hospitals and the Preston Retreat. He also was chief of the obstetrical department of the Presbyterian Hospital.
       "He had been president of the Philadelphia Obstetrical Society and vice-president of the American Gynecological Society. His clubs were the Rittenhouse, Philadelphia Country, University and Union League."11
  • Note*: He graduated from Yale University in 1857 and from the University of Pennsylvania medical school in 1860. During the next twenty years he was a resident physician and then obstetrician at Philadelphia Hospital. Later he served in obstetrics at the Polyclinic and Maternity Hospitals and the Preston Retreat. Dr. Duer also was chief of the Obstetrical Department of Presbyterian Hospital and was an assistant army surgeon in the Civil War. He lived in Philadelphia and "enjoyed a fashionable and lucrative practice."5

Naudain Hamilton

?, ID# 4989, b. 9 February 1857, d. 7 July 1907
  • Obituary*: "NAUDAIN HAMILTON
       "WELL-KNOWN HARRISBURGER DIES AT HOT SPRINGS.
       "Ex-President Of Common Council, County Democratic Chairman and Man Of Wide Interests
       "The funeral of Naudain Hamilton, the well-known resident of this city, who died Sunday morning at Hot Springs, Ark., will take place tomorrow afternoon at 5 o’clock from the residence of his brother, Dr. Hugh Hamilton, 315 Walnut street. The interment will be made in the Hamilton family plot in the Harrisburg Cemetery and will be private.
       "The death of Mr. Hamilton came suddenly and was a great shock to his many friends. He left here the latter part of June for Rock Island, Ill., where he was interested, and it is thought that he decided to go to Hot Springs for a rest, as he had been there a number of times in the past. Last winter Mr. Hamilton suffered from a protracted attack of grip, which left him rather weak. Evidently he took a severe cold, as, when his nephew, Dr. B. Wallace Hamilton, of New York, joined him at Hot Springs on Friday night he found him suffering from purulent pleurisy. Saturday night an operation took place and word was received here yesterday that Mr. Hamilton had died at 4.15 Sunday morning.
       "Mr. Hamilton lived at the Harrisburg Club. He was one of the best-known men in Harrisburg, being much interested in local real estate, on which he was regarded as one of the best-posted men. He was the youngest son of the late A. Boyd Hamilton and Catharine Louisa Naudain, daughter of Arnold Naudain, who represented Delaware in the United States Senate in the days of Henry Clay. He was born in Harrisburg 50 years ago and was educated under the late Prof. J. F. Seller at the Harrisburg Academy and Lafayette College and during his early manhood was engaged in newspaper work in New York, Chicago and in this city. Mr. Hamilton was at one time a member of the Chicago Board of Trade.
       "Mr. Hamilton devoted his attention after 1888 to real estate on Allison Hill. He was interested in a number of enterprises in the West, having been one of the organizers of the Southwest Missouri electric railway and one of the men who built a considerable part of that noted trolley system. At the time of his death he was president of the Union Electric Telephone and Telegraph Company, which operates the system in Rock Island, Ill., and Davenport, Iowa. He was also a director of the Paxtang Electric Company. He was a member of the Manhattan Club, of New York, and several other organizations. He was one of the charter members of the Harrisburg Lodge of Elks and a member of the Pennsylvania Society Sons of the American Revolution.
       "Mr. Hamilton represented the Third ward in Select and Common Councils and was president of Common Council in 1887. He was chairman of the Democratic County Committee for several terms and a few years ago, desiring to withdraw from politics, resigned from the chairmanship after serving a year upon appointment of State Chairman Hall.
       "Not only had Mr. Hamilton been in every State and Territory in the United States, but he had traveled throughout the Canadian provinces, Mexico and the West Indies. Mr. Hamilton made a trip around the world in 1891."9
  • Scrapbook*: • "AN UNFORTUNATE RENCONTRE.
       "Kilburn J. Chandler Shot by Naudain Hamilton.
       "On Friday night last, at about 9 o’clock, Kilburn J. Chandler, city editor of the Patriot, was wounded in the left leg by a bullet discharged from a pistol in the hands of Naudain Hamilton. No accurate account of the affair could be obtained on Friday night without disturbing the wounded man who was then in the hands of the surgeons, and it was thought best to make no announcement of the occurrence until full particulars of the shooting could be had.
       "Mr. Chandler states that he and a gentleman friend on Friday evening last visited the residence of Mr. William Stephen on Front street above Hamilton. Naudain Hamilton and a companion were also guests at the house of Mr. Stephen at the same time. The party were seated on the portico in conversation with the ladies of Mr. Stephen’s family, when Hamilton began to abuse Chandler using very insulting language. The latter declined a controversy further than to say that he would settle the matter with him elsewhere, but Hamilton persisted in his verbal assault. Finally Chandler, being greatly provoked, said to Hamilton, ‘If you will come with me on the river bank, I’ll give you all the satisfaction you want,’ or words to that effect. Hamilton declined to go at first, but continued to berate Chandler when the latter started to go home, and again invited the other to a settlement on the street or river bank. The two then left the house and faced each other on the street. Hamilton remarked, ‘Kil., you are larger and stronger than I, and this is hardly fair,’ to which Chandler was about to reply, when Hamilton struck at him with his open hand, grazing his face, saying, ‘If you think I am afraid of you, take that.’ Chandler immediately stepped forward toward Hamilton, when the latter drew a revolver and fired at him, but missed. Chandler stooped to find a stone but did not succeed, and then made a spring toward Hamilton for the purpose of securing the pistol, but as he leaped forward Hamilton fired again, the shot taking effect in the fore part of the left leg below the knee, breaking the large bone. The two then grappled with each other, but Chandler threw his antagonist and choked him severely. In the struggle the smaller bone of the wounded leg was also broken and the plucky editor was obliged to let go his grip. Meanwhile the other gentlemen visiting at Mr. Stephen’s, attracted by the pistol shots, appeared on the scene. Hamilton left and Chandler was taken to his home on Locust street below Third. The latter states that it is absolutely untrue that the quarrel between Hamilton and himself was caused by any affair of the heart; that there is no woman in the case at all, but that he and Hamilton had not been good friends for a long time. He also says that the report that he had fainted after he was wounded is incorrect.
       "A Patriot reporter called on Mr. Hamilton for the purpose of getting his version of the matter, but found the young man quite reticent. He would only say that public sympathy was naturally with Mr. Chandler on account of his wound and that the same was the case with his fellow reporters. From a number of Hamilton’s friends, however, the reporter gathered the information that the young man claims to have been annoyed beyond endurance by remarks which he declares Mr. Chandler made concerning him and also that he was struck twice before he attempted to resent the injury. It is also asserted by Mr. Hamilton’s friends that the first shot was fired ‘perpendicularly into the air’ and the second shot was discharged while Hamilton was putting the revolver into his pocket and would have struck the ground had not Mr. Chandler had his leg between Hamilton’s legs in trying to ‘throw’ him. Mr. Hamilton’s friends express the most profound regret for the unfortunate occurrence.
       "Information was made before the mayor on Saturday by Lieutenant Weltmer (not however, at the instance of Mr. Chandler) against Naudain Hamilton for felonious assault and battery with intent to kill, and carrying concealed deadly weapons. Hamilton waived a hearing and Mayor Herman held him first in $800 for his appearance at court, but afterward increased it to $2,800. The security was given and Hamilton set at liberty. The wounded man was doing well yesterday and the surgeons think they will not be obliged to resort to amputation.”

    • "WILLED HIS NEPHEW $1.01 AND SOME FRIENDLY ADVICE
       "Bulk of Mr. Hamilton’s Estate is Divided Between Two Nephews
       "The will of the late Naudain Hamilton, of this city, was read yesterday and will shortly be admitted to probate. Mr. Hamilton left quite a considerable estate, consisting of holdings in public service corporations, in Harrisburg and western cities, and valuable real estate in Harrisburg and vicinity. He was one of the heirs of the late A. Boyd Hamilton. While the provisions of the will are not made public, they are pretty generally known.
       "The bulk of the estate is divided between A. Boyd Hamilton, of Harrisburg, and Dr. Wallace Hamilton, of New York city, two nephews, sons of Dr. Hugh Hamilton, of this city, both of whom are graduates of the University of Pennsylvania. To S. Holbert Hamilton, of Philadelphia, another nephew, is left ‘one dollar and one cent,’ with ‘wholesome advice and friendly admonition.’
       "The Philadelphia nephew is connected with the University of Pennsylvania, and, it is said, objected to some of the proceedings in the settlement of the estate of the late A. Boyd Hamilton, and is alleged to have resorted to the court in his contention with Naudain Hamilton. The A. Boyd Hamilton matter was only finally adjudicated by the court about two months ago, and in favor of Naudain Hamilton, one of the administrators."

    • "CITY HALL SLANTS . . . Just learned: Naudain street [in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania] was named for Naudain Hamilton, an uncle of A. Boyd Hamilton, who aided in the development of the section beyond Thirteenth and Berryhill."10,11,12
