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

The manuscript was found in his desk after being shot and killed in Clinton. It. is noted that the last verse is incomplete.-THE CONFEDERATE SOLDER=From the days of brave Leonidas, adown the tides of life, In all their glory, pomp and pride and martial deeds sublime, Whether Saxon, Celt or Teuton or the flower of La Belle France, 'Mid the blazing belch of cannon, where the war steeds proudly prance, 'Mid scenes of death's wild carnage, where the war gods hold mad sway, Mortal eyes ne'er saw the equals of those glorious ranks of Gray. Paragraph:Of those born sons of freedom, on the deathless scroll of fame, Writ heroic deeds of daring in our Sunny Southland's name, Grand, grim, titanic warriors of a cause forever just, The bards of coming ages will defy your dust, And the Cycle of the centuries no grander troops will see, Than the vanished hosts of Jackson and the scattered ranks of Lee. Paragraph:Then we meet you and we greet you on this glad reunion day, Survivors of our Southland's cause! Your faine can ne'er decay. "Tis the heritage of freemen and your deeds were not in vain, For descendants of such heroes, will show ancestral strain. But for blood baptized Columbia, cast in heroic mould, Would repeat the deeds of daring of their fighting sires of old. Paragraph: But your gallant ranks are thinning and that glorious line of gray, Like mist before the day king, is fast falling away; And soon a sainted memory will be all that shall remain, Of those deathless, dauntless legions who marched to "Dixie's" strain. And with your earth-life ended and immortal spirits free, You'll rejoin the phantom columns of your Jackson and your Lee. Paragraph:We love you, grim old heroes, as in years gone by, When your courage thrilled the world, when you dared to do, or die; When proud Stars and Bars of Dixie ' mid the gonfalons of earth, Kissed first the breeze of Heaven and proclaimed a nation's birth. Greenwood (Miss.) Commonwealth.
