Death has claimed as its victim another of Kentucky's most distinguished citizens.  Samuel Hanson, Esq., of the county of Clark, is no more.  He died after a long protracted illness at his residence in the town of Winchester, on Saturday morning last at 8:30 o'clock.

Samuel Hanson was no ordinary man; indeed he was in every sense of the term an extraordinary man.  Nature had dealt lavishly with him, and her gifts had been nurtured and cultivated with great assiduity.  Born in the city of Alexandria, then in the District of Columbia, he received the benefits of a superior scholastic and legal education, and at an early age exhibited promises of the ability and usefulness which characterized his subsequent career.  He left the District about fifty years ago, in the company with Mr. Clay, then a member of the National Legislature, for Kentucky, and, after a brief residence in other sections of the State, located in the county in which he died, and for upwards of forty years has been regarded by its citizens with the respect, esteem and confidence which are always the attendants of a life of public usefulness and of private worth.

But the fame of Samuel Hanson was not alone confined to the county in which he lived, or its immediate vicinity.  He was extensively and favorably known throughout the Commonwealth, and his name will long be remembered and revered by hosts of true-hearted friends in every section of the State.  His fine scholarly attainments, great legal learning and superior natural abilities placed him in the front rank of statesmen and jurists in Kentucky, and commanded for him a position and a reputation of which any man might be justly proud.  He was always a firm and consistent Whig, repeatedly represented his county in both branches of the Legislature, and at one time filled the office of Speaker of the Senate with great credit and distinction.  The records of the Legislature for years bear the impress of his masterly genius and the conservative principles which marked his whole political history; and few survive him who have exerted a more potent influence upon the policy of the State during the stormiest periods of her political history.

But it was not alone in his public capacity that Samuel Hanson was distinguished. In all his private relations, like the illustrious Bayard, he was, without fear and without reproach.  A kind and indulgent husband and father, a faithful counselor and a steadfast friend, he will be remembered as the man who fulfilled his every duty to those connected with him by the most endearing ties.  But eulogy in regard to such a man soon exhausts itself, and we close this brief and imperfect tribute to an old and valued friend, by directing attention to an obituary in another part of our paper by a distinguished contemporary of the illustrious dead."

2William B. Allen, Louisville, Kentucky, Kentucky, History of, Bradley and Gilbert,1872, pg 251. "Samuel Hanson, of Clark County, Kentucky, was born in May, 1786, and died in February, 1858, at the age of nearly seventy-two years. His birth place was in the State of Maryland, and he studied law in the District of Columbia. He was one of the most learned and accurate of his profession. He understood and practiced the system of pleading with great success. He was frequently a member in both branches of the Kentucky Legislature. Rodger Hanson was his son, who took an active part in the war of the Rebellion as a general on the Confederate side. he was a talented and brave man, ambitious of fame, and died valiantly fighting for the cause he had espoused with great ardor."
