Hebrew Fashion Older Than Greek Wisdom

From The Centralia (Wis.) Enterprise And Tribune of Apr. 25, 1891:

An investigation into some real estate titles, says a Brandenburg, Ky., correspondent, recently made at that place revealed the peculiar idiosyncrasy of a former resident of that place, Louis Hamilton, in naming his children. The names of his children are London Judge, Hebrew Fashion, Chinese Figure, Reputable Kingdom, [and] Greek Wisdom. It is also said that he had a daughter, now dead, whom he called "Hell in the Kitchen."
The story checks out: they were living in Nelson Furnace, Kentucky, in 1880.
