HALBERT LILLIAN KATHERINE MRS. HARDEN 4 8 1870 4 2 1962 FPARK
Lillian Harden Halbert, lovingly known as "Mammie", was born to Oliver Cromwell Harden and Louise A. "Lou" Ewing in Tennessee. She married her 2nd Cousin, James Webster Halbert on Christmas Eve of 1889 in Lewisburg, Marshall County, Tennessee. The 3 children born of this union was a daughter, Tommye Lenice (1892-1977), Mary Lou (Nov 1894-?) and a son, William Paul (1898-1977). Jim and Katherine left Tennessee in a covered wagon about 1893. I had a vinyl record of "Mammie" telling about her trip, but unforunately, it was lost in a flood. To my memory, the 2nd child became sick with scarlet fever. She must have been a newborn. She gave the children the brine from a picle barrel as medicine. I don't know if both children had it or not, but I know that Mary Lou died. I don't have an exact date. The winter was hard that year and the family could not proceed on to Oklahoma to meet up with other brothers and sisters who had made the journey. They settled in Caldwell, Arkansas, a small town north of Forrest City. Jim had a blacksmith shop and a gristmill. Lillie served lunches out of the home for farm laborers. After James died she lived her remaining life with her daughter, Lenice, and helped her raise her children. She died of old age just 6 days short of her 92nd birthday.

HASKINS THOMAS E. CAPT. 1836 11 7 1904 CITY CSA-18TH MISSISSIPPI
Death of Capt.T.E.Haskins=Capt.T.E.Haskins has gone to his just reward. He had been ill at times during the last three years of his life, and was recently brought to his bed by a malignant attack of pneumonia. He died Monday morning, Nov.7.1904, surrounded by friends and relatives. The funeral took place Wednesday morning from his country home, and the remains were laid to rest in the FORREST CITY in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends, under auspices of the Knights and Ladies of Honor, Rev.H.M.McLain assisted Rev.S.H.Babcock in the religious services, and the choir of the Methodist church sang several of his favorite hymns. "This time for Thomas Edward Haskins-soldier, patriot, citizen, Christian-familiarly known as Captain Haskins." He was born in Prince Edward County, Va., in the fall of 1836. While quite young, he moved to Mississippi. He enlisted with the 18th Mississippi, and after being sent to Virginia, he was transferred to Co.K, 34th Cavalry, Wickam's Brigade, Fitz Lee's Division, and served with Stewart's cavalry from the beginning of the Civil war to the end. On June 12,1876 he was married to Miss Fannie Moore, and they had five children, one of whom survives him. His wife preceded him to heaven by 27 years. He has lived at Forrest City since 1872, and has served as bookkeeper, general merchant, and public office. He was sheriff by appointment, and was elected Treasurer for St.Francis county for three consecutive terms. He was a man of clean life, and gentlemanly bearing. He was a longtime member of the Presbyterian church, and led an exemplary life as a Christian gentleman. Attending the funeral:Mr.Archer Haskins, brother of deceased, Mehaernia, Va.; Mrs.Gertrude Wiggins, and little daughter, of St.Louis, niece of deceased; and Miss Patty Moore of Memphis, sister in law of deceased. 11-18-1904 Card of thanks from Miss Fannie and Mr.Archer Haskins to Capt.James Fussell and Mr.G.B.Mallory, the Times and others who were so kind in their late distress. 12-16-1904 Tribute in Scott County Register, Mississippi, by his friend, Jno.J.Hood-We were intimate friends before the war, but then this feeling was intensified during the war, at his fathers home in grand old Virginia. The old Virginia hospitality was liberally dispensed at that splendid home, where was assembled the highest type of southern womanhood and the chivalry and honor of the south's peerless manhood. Capt.Haskins rode with the Knightly Stuart, and followed his black plume wherever his dauntless courage led. It is needless to say that where Stuart fought and passed, there lies today a shaft of light and fame, and to those who followed him the glory of his great achievement. After the war he merchandised with his cousin, Capt.David M.Womack. +NOV-11-1904

H. Haven-Familiar Figure of Man Who Succeeded, In Spite Of all Vicissitudes Passes Away.Chas. H. Haven was born in Germany on October 22. 1844, and came to this country when but three years of age, and at the time of his death was 69 years, 8 months and 8 days old.The story of his life would make a book of wonderful interest, and is of great value to boys, as showing what energy conserved and enterprise and tenacity in a chosen life work will accomplish. The writer of this feeble memorial knew C. H. Haven for upwards of a quarter century. We knew him at a time when he had invested his last penny in property and business in this city and had not prospered as he deserved. He was discouraged for a brief moment, and the thought occurred to him to give up, but he said no to me, "No sir, I am going to stay with `em, and sink or swim." And he did, and from that day he prospered. He began in a small way. He owned a gin and saw mill. He purchased lot after lot in the old Dillard & Chouffin addition, cheap, and when business was dull he took his mill hands and built a house. He continued in this line for years, and at the time of his death owned 49 dwelling houses in this city from which he derived a monthly income of six or eight hundred dollars. It was his stick-to-ittiveness that won. He was honest almost to a fault, and straight forward in all his dealings. He paid his debts and was esteemed by a very large circle of friends. We lately saw him on the streets and talked with him just a few days ago. He was Comparing this year with last, and related some of his experiences. We have often laughed with him about the time he told us he would "let `em take it," meaning what little property he had at that time, when had almost come completely discouraged, but took another grip on himself, and went to win out and did so. We thought him in splendid health. On Wednesday of last week he had some indication of heart trouble. He had been effected simullarly several times lately. He was prevailed upon to go to Memphis, which he did on Thursday morning of last week. He first went to the home of his daughter, Mrs. Tim Ezell, and later to the home of another daughter, Mrs. Frank Barlow, and gradually grew worse until Tuesday night at 9 o'clock when his spirit quietly took its flight, it left its earthly habitation without a struggle. The remains were prepared for burial and returned here Wednesday afternoon, arriving at 4:.30 over the Rock Island, and lay in state at his late residence until yesterday afternoon, when in the presence of a very large gathering of relatives and friends, Rev. F. W. Gee of the Methodist church conducted religious services and delivered a brief address, the funeral cortege leaving the home at 10 o'clock. The remains were interred in the FORREST CITY in the presence of one of the largest gathering ever seen there. C. H. Haven was a member of the Methodist church. He was quiet, and unostentatious, honest in his dealings with all men, a loving husband, kind and indulgent father, a good neighbor, charitable and "true blue." He was a soldier of the Civil War, in which he wore the Gray. He leaves to mourn their great love, a broken hearted widow, four daughters and four sons, as follows: Mrs. Mattie Barlow, and Mrs.Nannie Ezell of Memphis; Mrs.Emma Hodges of this city, and Mrs.Lucy Looney of Dupo, Illinois; Messrs. John Haven of Wynne, Charley, Willie and Louis of this city, all of whom, with their families, were present around the casket. It is a remarkable fact that until this death this large family ....had suffered a death in the trunk of the family...the first to give up the fight.

HEMENWAY HARRIET MRS 1834 6 6 1900 JOHNSON
DAUGHTER AND MOTHER-Death of Mrs.Harriet Hemenway-The mantle of gloom which hangs heavily over the familes of two of our friends, Messrs.W.S. and Charles F.Hemenway of Wheatley, and today we feel our inability to go out to them with adequate words of condolence. There is no friend like a mother, and although our heart is full of tender solicitude, we realize how futile it would be to endeavor to assuage their days of grief by such feeble words of sympathy-as we might offer. Especially do we feel and appreciate the great burden of grief by Miss Grace. Naturally this lovable girl will feel the pangs of sorrow with greater force than any other member of the household. Mrs.Hemenway was a venerable christian character, was born in Marl, New Hampshire in 1834, and was 66 years of age, last Friday evening, June 6,1900. Burial in Johnson Cemetery Wheatley.-FORREST CITY TIMES +JUN-15-1900
HEMENWAY JULIA ST.FRANCIS MRS IZARD 12 28 1858 4 3 1945 CITY NATIVE
Julia St. Francis Izard, daughter of Flavius Josephus Izard and Sarah Elizabeth Whitaker, was born December 28, 1858, in St. Francis County, Ark. She passed peacefully from this mortal realm April 3, 1945, in the 87th year of her age. Concerning her we read in the Crowley Ridge Chronicle, Forrest City, Ark., April 5, 1945, and we quote - - "She, whose memory we revere, was of a sunny disposition - charitable and generous to a fault. She was married to Walter Selden Hemenway in 1889. And with her husband led the organization and built the Baptist Church at Wheatley, where they lived many years, and where Mr. Hemenway was profitably engaged in agriculture and merchandising. This writer remembers him in highest esteem and affection. It is a rare privilege and heritage to have been touched with the happy life and work of such a noble citizen. He and his mate belonged to a type of consecrated, though rapidly vanishing Christian American of the old school. Walter Selden Hemenway died in 1929 - In humility let us mention the fine inspiration which motivated the deceased's busy years, and which constituted her chief activity and concern, ie - The compilation of an invaluable historical volume. The remarkable thing is, that this outstanding work was accomplished after she had passed her 80th birthday, and she spent her last years on earth completing the family record - The Izards and Whitakers, who settled in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and nearby in 1658. Both (of) those old pioneer families are proud of this book which contains such a wealth of information and such an exhaustive review, and the early struggles of their forebears, who were our nation's first settlers. Julia Izard-Hemenway was the grand daughter of Mark Whitaker Izard and Frances Permelia Shackelford. Mark Whitaker Izard was a former governor of Nebraska, and later a leader in the Arkansas Territorial Senate. Silver-haired Julia Izard Hemenway, was the most rugged and untiring champion of an age of chivalry which is gone, and she devoted the best days of her life to preserving and keeping its pages bright. She kept green the memory of those of her own blood whom she loved wath a passion akin to worship. She lived for her kinfolks, and she was not stained by countless modern evil tendencies - stink holes of sin never appealed to her" - -end of quote. And thus ended the mortal probation of another of god's noble women, indeed a mother of Israel. May God bless and rest her spirit.

A box party was held by the colored folks, largely attended. among the guests being the family of Monroe Madison, with their uncle, who was murdered, and Silas Jones, the man who did the killing. A woman, Sally Madison accused Jones of stealing her knife, and while he was denying it, someone picked his pocket and gave it back to her, and when she asked "I thought you said you didn't have my knife," whereupon he slapped her on the face. In the scuffle, Jones finger was cut, and then John Henderson stepped up and told Jones to not do that anymore. Before the party ended, Jones slipped out to the cabin of Madison, and wanted to borrow the shot gun of George Madison, but stepped into the next room and stole the gun, and went off to get shells. Later after the Madison family had retired, Jones knocked on the door, and when they opened it, Jones partly stepped in and told Henderson he wanted the knife, but before he could reply, Jones shot him dead, and then fled in the darkness. He was captured by Constable T.L.Humble, at Widener, the next day at Heth. Henderson was acting as guardian of the household while the head of the family, is in jail for selling mortgaged cotton, Monroe Madison. +MAY-26-1905

HIGGINS WILLIAM HENRY 5 15 1844 10 11 1897 BARNISHAW NATIVE CSA-Co.H-40TH TENNESSEE REGIMENT
William H. Higgins was born in St. Francis County, Ark., in 1844, a son of Jeremiah and Martha Higgins, natives of Indiana and Arkansas respectively. He passed his boyhood days in much the same manner as other farmer lads, receiving such advantages for an education as could be obtained from the meager facilities of the district. His father moved to Texas in 1853, but returned after a residence there of two years. Young William began fighting life's battle at the age of twenty-three, choosing the occupation of farming, which he has since continued. He was married in 1867, to Mary E. Saratt, who died in 1879, leaving seven children: Martha A., Mary J., Melissa E., Josephine, Melinda C., Auazablin and Rosie L. Mr. Higgins was married in 1883 to Martha A. Ellis, who was also called from earth three years later, having borne one child: Elsie J. For his third and present wife, Mr. Higgins married Martha J. Elliott, an estimable lady of culture and refinement. Mr. Higgins enlisted in the Confederate army in 1861, in Company H, Fortieth Tennessee Regiment, participating in the battles of Island No. 10, Dalton (Ga.), Allatoona and Resaca. At the first-named engagement he was captured and removed to Springfield (Camp Butler), Ill., and at the battle of Allatoona, again taken prisoner and sent to Camp Chase, Ohio, remaining in prison seven and a half months. He was exchanged at Richmond (Va.) and released on parole, but before this term expired the final surrender took place. After the war Mr. Higgins returned home, where he resumed his occupation of farming, and now owns 424 acres, with 110 cleared and improved. He is also successfully engaged in stock raising. He is a member of the Wheel, and Alliance. His views politically are Democratic, and in religious faith he is a Methodist. He is a leader, not a follower, in all public enterprises, to which he contributes liberally, and under his able and efficient management the success of any movement largely is assured. Mrs. Higgins is a member of the Baptist Church. Lisa Hamilton submitted the above data from ARKHISBIO's, 1884; she did so to help others, she is not researching the above person or families mentioned therein.-http://www.arkansasfamilies.net/afamstfranhiggins.htm-Died on the morning of October 11,1897, at 4:30 o'clock, William H.Higgins, at his residence in L'Anguille township.

HODGES JESSE B. 1837 2 5 1911 YOCONA CSA-Co.G-13TH ARKANSAS REGIMENT
+FEB-10-1911 DEATH=The Forrest City Times, Feb, 10, 1911. Another Pioneer Dead. "Uncle" Jesse B. Hodges Goes to His Reward Last Sunday Night as Result of Paralytle Stroke. A brother of St. Francis County's loved citizens answered the final summons on Sunday night at 10:12 o'clock when MR. Jesse B. Hodges, or "Uncle Jesse," as he was familiarly called by those who knew and loved him as well, passed to his eternal reward, after a long and useful life, as an upright, conscientious Christian gentleman. Mr. Hodges had been in feeble health for a number of years, but had not until recently been confined to his room and bed. On Sunday he had been up and about as usual until about the middle of the afternoon he was stricken with the fatal stroke, from which he never recovered, and to which his gallant spirit finally succumbed, in spite of all that scientific skill and kindly loving care could do to alleviate his suffering and prolong his life. Mr. Hodges was in his 74th year, and had long been a resident of this county, where he lived and worked, and had all of his interests. He was a life long member of the Missionary Baptist church, and was one of the founders of the church of that denomination at Popular Grove. The following brief sketch of his life taken from "Memories of Eastern Arkansas," a volume published in 1890, bells in better language than we could hope to express, his life story up to that time: "Jesse B. Hodges, one of the prominent tillers of the soil in this section, was born in Beaufort county, N. C. in 1837, being the son of John L. and Cynthia (Rodgers) Hodges, natives of North Carolina. Jesse B. came to Arkansas with his parents in .1850, settling on a farm not far from his present residence. His educational advantages were limited, his help being needed on his father's farm, but notwithstanding this fact, he is a well informed man, having given considerable attention to reading, which, added to keen observation, has enabled him to be conversant on all the important topics of the past and present. When 22 years of age he accepted a position as manager of a farm, so continuing until the beaking out of the war, when he enlisted in 1861, in the Confederate service, in Company G, 13th Arkansas Regiment, participating in the battles of Shiloh, Richmond, Perryville, Murfreesboro, Liberty Gap, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge, New Hope, Resace, also Peach Tree Creek, Decatur, Jonesboro, Spring Hill, Franklin and Bentonville. Subsequently, or at the close of the war, his regiment surrendered to Sherman at Greensboro, N. C. , on April 26, 1865. As this sketch will show, Mr. Hodges participated in all of the principal engagements of the late war in which the Tennessee army took part. After peace was declared he returned home, resuming the occupation of farming, and in 1868 was united in marriage to Miss Mary F. Matthews, a daughter of Lawrence and Lydia A. (Crawford) Matthews. No children have been given them. Mr. Hodges owns 400 acres of excellent land, with 275 under cultivation. He has a pleasant, comfortable place, and all the improvements and conveniences that all so much to the happiness of home. He also is quite extensively occupied in stock raising, and has been very sucdessful. His political views are Democratic. Himself and wife are members of the Baptist church." Mr. Hodges left no near relatives, his wife having preceded him to the grave a number of years However, numberous nephews and nieces, and a host of others, to whom, though he was not related, he was dearly beloed, mourn his death. Interment was had Tuesday morning at Yacona, the precious remains being laid to rest almost in the shadows of the sacred edifice which he had founded. Elder E. P. J. Garrott, of the Baptist church of this city, officiated, and paid a glowing tribute to the worth and virtues of the man to whom the congregation had gathered to pay their last sad respects. "Uncle Jesse" was a good man, he had led a good life, full of good deeds and kindly acts. He had lived out his allotted three score and ten, and his life had been lived in vain. His passing away removed another of the venerable landmarks that are becoming all too few, and many a heart is saddened at the thought of his passing. But, for a goodly soul like his, death had no sting. He was ready and willing to go - ready to say in all faith and sincerity, "Thy will, not mine be done," and in peace to meet the loved ones gone before.

Following an honorable discharge from the Army on October 7, 1947, he returned to Cross County and continued farming with his father.Lee married his wife, Pauline on August 6, 1949. They have lived in the one and only home which he built on the family farm. Of course, this home has seen several additions as their three children entered this world. Lee believed that each child should have his/her own bedroom; this greatly decreased the fussing and fighting among the kids at bedtime.Lee certainly cherished his land and livestock, especially his milk cow. Some folks accused him of having green blood, John Deere green that is. Believing that an item could serve more than one specific purpose, he has been seen retrieving materials from the scrap metal pile to build a wood splitter. Lee was truly God's steward.Highly respected in the community for his integrity of character, generosity toward his neighbors, selflessness, and mechanical abilities, he instilled these same values in his children.Passionate about conservative politics, the leaders of our State and Nation could learn a great deal from Lee's insightful analysis and commonsense approach to problem solving.Survivors are his wife of 59 years, Pauline Smith Hodges of the home; his son, Thomas Matt Hodges of Wynne; daughter, Ellen Marie Hodges of Little Rock; three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Following an honorable discharge from the Army on October 7, 1947, he returned to Cross County and continued farming with his father.Lee married his wife, Pauline on August 6, 1949. They have lived in the one and only home which he built on the family farm. Of course, this home has seen several additions as their three children entered this world. Lee believed that each child should have his/her own bedroom; this greatly decreased the fussing and fighting among the kids at bedtime.Lee certainly cherished his land and livestock, especially his milk cow. Some folks accused him of having green blood, John Deere green that is. Believing that an item could serve more than one specific purpose, he has been seen retrieving materials from the scrap metal pile to build a wood splitter. Lee was truly God's steward.Highly respected in the community for his integrity of character, generosity toward his neighbors, selflessness, and mechanical abilities, he instilled these same values in his children.Passionate about conservative politics, the leaders of our State and Nation could learn a great deal from Lee's insightful analysis and commonsense approach to problem solving.Survivors are his wife of 59 years, Pauline Smith Hodges of the home; his son, Thomas Matt Hodges of Wynne; daughter, Ellen Marie Hodges of Little Rock; three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.Services will be Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at 10 AM at Kernodle Funeral Home Chapel with burial in Barnishaw Cemetery in Pine Tree.

HUGHES THOMAS A. 3 1 1835 8 16 1912 HUGHES CSA
DEATH OF OLD CITIZEN=THE FORREST CITY TIMES, AUG. 23, 1912. DEATH OF OLD CITIZEN. Thomas A. Hughes was born at Jackson, Madison county, West Tennessee, March 1st, 1835 and departed this life August 16, 1912, age 77 years, 5 months, 16 days. He came with his parents to Arkansas in the year 1852. They settled in what is now Johnson township, St. Francis county. He entered the Confederate army in 1862, and remained until the close of the war. He died in the home where he had loved continuously for 62 years. The county never had a better citizen or the community a better neighbor. Brother Hughes may have had his faults, if so we throw the mantle of Charity over them and look only at his virtues, because it is human to ere. He stood for every thing that would help his fellow man: his hospitality knew not bounds, and as an entertainer was second to none. We read in the ninth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, of one Dorcas, who was full of alms, and when she was dead, the people stood by weeping, and showed the garments she had made and given to the poor. Just so will a great host of the church people, when they hear of the death of Brother Hughes, recount the many pleasant hours spent in that unassuming home. It is more than probable that Brother Hughes entertained more of the church people, than any man in the county. A good man is gone - one of the pioneers of Crowley Ridge - one who cut the cane and built his home; one who, band in hand with his neighbor, builded the log church and school house. Well may the family of intelligent boys and girls, feel proud of their noble sire. To the bereaved family we would speak a word of comfort; Grieve not for his departure; his life work is done, yea and well done and from; his own testimony, we believe that while we write this brief notice of death, his happifled soul is already in possession of the mansions prepared for God's dear children. Farewell, conflicting hopes and fears, where lights and shades alternate at will; how bright the unchanging morn appears. Farewell inconstant world Farewell. Written by his friend A. C. Thompson. He left a wife and eight children namely Miss Lonnie White, Mrs. James Wilson, Mrs. James Brown, Mrs. John Johnson, Miss Nettie Hughes, Messrs. Henry, Charlie and Jesse Hughes. The Tlmes tenders its sincere sympathy to the bereaved famil. 8-23-1912 Note:Thomas was my great grandfather and his parents, Evan E. and Hannah Bray Hughes donated the land to the cemetery. I don't remember which year is on the deed, but the record of transfer by deed is in the St. Francis Co. courthouse. Evan and Hannah also donated the land for the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, presently Good Hope Baptist Church, adjacent to and across the Barrow Hill Road from the Hughes Cemetery.

HUNTER CHARLEY 1848 2 13 1903 CITY
DEATH OF CHARLEY HUNTER=Last Friday evening at 8:35, Feb.13,1903, the sad tidings of the death of Charley Hunter spread over the city. A few hours before he was in the enjoyment of health, and just before the hour stated above he complained of a pain over the heart, and notwithstanding all was done that human aid could render his spirit passed to its maker. Charley Hunter was born in Bolivar, Tenn, in 1848, and removed to St.Francis county in 1859, since which time up to his death, he has resided, excepting a year or so during his married life, when he lived in Little Rock. After the death of his wife he returned to St.Francis county, and was engaged in the timber business at the time of his death. Out of the nine in number of his father's family who moved to this county, only one is living, Dan Hunter. Charley died at the residence of his brother Dan, and everything which family and friends could do was done, and to the friends in need on the occasion, Mr.Dan Hunter wishes to express his thanks. The remains were laid away in the family plot in God's acre on the hill. Perhaps no one in the county was more familiarly known than Charley Hunter, and his kind and pleasing manner won him friends among both whites and blacks. He had his faults-(who has not) but with all, none was quicker to respond to the call of duty. +FEB-20-1903

MRS.M.L.HUNTER IS DEAD=The sad news reached the city Wednesday that Mrs.M.L.Hunter, of New Orleans, is dead. Mrs.Hunter was a former resident of this city, and had many friends and acquaintances who remember the family kindly and regret her death. About ten years ago they moved to Wynne, and three years later moved to New Orleans, where she has resided since. She passed away on Tuesday, Mar.23,1909 in her 80th year, of general debility and complications. Mrs.Hunter was a sister in law of Mrs.John M.Parrot, and an aunt of Mrs.H.P.Dooley, of this city. She also leaves two daughters, Mrs.Noble nee Miss Jimmie Hunter, and Miss Polly Hunter to mourn her loss. The family are also dear friends of Mr.& Mrs.L.E.Davenport. The precious remains were shipped to Forrest City and will be interred in the FORREST CITY tomorrow. The funeral services will by held by Rev.W.L.Wilford of the Methodist church at that place after the arrival of the morning train from Memphis.The Forrest City Times. April 2, 1909. Mrs. M. A. Hunter. In New Orleans on Thursday, March 23, at 12:30 a.m. , Mrs. M. A. Hunter, aged 80 years, one of the early settlers of Arkansas and a former resident of Forrest City, widow of the late James A. Hunter, of Crowley Ridge, after a painful and protracted illness of many weeks, passed into eternal rest, and the enjoyment of that perfect peace which God giveth to those who love and serve Him. Mrs. Hunter was born in Claysville, Alabama, on August 3rd, 1828 and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Johnson, formerly of South Carolina. She was married in 1856 to Mr. James A. Hunter, of St. Francis county, Arkansas, whom whe survived a quarter of a century. In 1896 Mrs. Hunter removed with her family to New Orleans, at which place she resided to the day of her demise at the ripe age of four score years. During her residence in and near Forrest City, Mrs. Hunter endeared herself to a large circle of friends and acquaintances by her gentleness and helpfulness of spirit, and the exhbition in her quiet and unostentiatious way of those Christian virtues which are the crown and ornament of the true womans life. To the poor and needy she cheerfully extended a helping hand, (how the Lord loveth a cheerful giver.) To the sick she was a ministering angel, and to those who were in sorrow she gave the balm of her boundless sympathies, as well as her tenderest ministrations. She was a consistent and exemplary member of the Methodist church, and throughout her long and useful career, "adorned the doctrine and walked in the faith." Mrs. Hunter left to mourn her loss, and to cherish the remembrance of a life well spent, four daughters, one granddaughter, four grandsons and four great grandchildren. Her daughters, are Mrs. W. H. WIlls, Mrs. W. L Seaborn, Mrs. J. H. Noble and Miss Pop Hunter. To them we extend our deepest sympathy. May they have grace to "trust God in the dark," and find in Him that comfort and strength which the world cannot give nor take away. Shortly before Mrs. Hunter's remains were taken from her late residence, 129 University Place, New Orleans, funeral services were held in the presence of a large number of her friends and those of her family. Many beautiful flowers and appropriate floral offerings of exquisite design testified to the esteem in which Mrs. Hunter was held: they also expressed sweetly and tenderly the deep love and sympathy that is felt in all hearts for the sorrowing ones bereft of their treasure. - Brenda Huntley Added: 4/1/2007 +MAR-26-1909
