8-16-1912 - FOLBRE - THOMAS - C. - JUDGE - - 6 14 1841 - 8 10 1912 - CITY - AGED CITIZEN PASSES AWAY=Judge T.C.Folbre, stricken by icy hand of death Saturday afternoon, Aug.10,1912. Again are the people of Forrest City and St.Francis county called upon to mourn the death on one of their most prominent and popular fellow citizens, a good man, honest and true, in the person of Thomas C.Folbre, Sr., who departed this life last Saturday evening, after having suffered for several months with a malady that had held him prisoner in his home, and mostly confined to his bed. Judge Folbre had been in extremely bad health since early in the spring, and though all that medical skill and the skillful attentive care was done for him, all to no avail. Thomas C.Folbre, Sr., was born in Aurora, Indiana in 1841. He received his education in the public schools of that state and Kentucky, and came to Arkansas in 1850, settling in this county. At the age of sixteen he began business for himself at Linden in the southern edge of this county, and in 1869 came to Forrest City as a salesman for Altheimer Bros., a general merchandise on the corner of Washington and Front Streets, where the Rollwage building now stands. In 1870, when Forrest City was incorporated, he was on the first city council. He was tax assessor of the county for four years, as well as a salesman for L.Rollwage & Co. In 1894, he was elected circuit and county court clerk, which he held for two years. Next he was selected to be the office of county and probate judge for three terms, retiring in 1908. He was a continuous resident, except two years spent in San Antonio for his health. Judge Folbre was a gallant Confederate soldier, having enlisted in August, 1861, and served throughout the entire war, surrendering on May 1865, at which time he held the rank of lieutenant in Company A, Fifteenth Arkansas Infantry. Just before the last resting place of the body was begun, taps were sounded by Bugler Joe Reltano of Wynne and Forrest City, and this remembrance of what he had been as a soldier, and citizen, and his now departing, brought fresh tears to the eyes of not only his devoted family, but of the onlooking friends. He was a member of the Episcopal church, the Knights of Pythias, Odd Fellows, and Knights of Honor, Knight and Ladies of Honor, and Red Men. Judge Folbre was married, first in 1870 to Miss Henry Adams, the wedding taking place on the Walker place, near Haynes. One child, a little girl who died in infancy, was born to this union, and its mother only lived two years after the marriage. In 1874 he was married to Miss Dora McCrary, of this county, and the couple lived together for about eight years, before they separated. To this union four boys, Thomas, Jr., Claude, Herbert, and Homer, all except Claude survive him. In 1889, he was married to Mrs.L.J.Andrews, the marriage taking place when she visited her sister, Mrs.J.M.Brown. To this union were born four children, three of whom survive, Frank, Gene and Gerald. He also leaves three cousins, Misses Clara, Elizabeth, and Mary Folbre, of Aurora, Indiana; a nephew, Mallon Folbre, a step daughter, Mrs.W.R.Ferguson, and grandchildren:Reullura and Lillian Ferguson. Hubert's two children, Charles Hubert, Jr. and Thomas Walthall; and Homer's daughter, Dora Belle. Funeral services were held at the home, and interment was in the Forrest City cemetery, Rev.E.T.Mabley officiating. The services were under the auspices of the Geo.P.Taylor Lodge No.196, I.O.O.F., and the pall bearers from that lodge: W.A.Pearson, George Swartz, Robert Brittain, Max Yoffie, J.R.Carder, and P.W.Lewis.
8-23-1912 - HUGHES - THOMAS - A. - - - 3 1 1835 - 8 16 1912 - HUGHES - 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, built 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 family. DONATED LAND FOR HUGHES CEMETERY.

Details of what must have been a cold blooded premeditated case of way laying and murder, were brought to Forrest City this morning by Coroner F.P.Todd as he brought Richard and Clyde Hood, and W.M.Morris, young men who live in the Dark Corner neighborhood, about nine miles north of Forrest City. The Hood boys and Morris were arrested as a result of a coroner's jury finding J.E.W.Hood, father of the boys responsible for killing Cardwell, a farmer who lived in the same neighborhood. Later J.E.W.Hood gave himself up, and the boys were released. From testimony, the two were returning from Wynne, in separate wagons, and the men had words on the way, and in a scuffle Hood's pistol fell from his belt, whereupon Cardwell picked it up. Later, Hood went back, and telling his boys that he was going back with a shotgun and shoot Cardwell while way laying him on the road. Upon investigation, some pistol wounds were also found in the body of Cardwell. The murdered man leaves a wife and four children, and came here from Kentucky to farm.

9-6-1912 - BEAZLEY - J. - R. - JUDGE - - 1842 - 9 6 1912 - CONFEDERATE - A notice that Judge J.R.Beazley died this morning at St.Joseph's Hospital in Memphis was received too late for today's paper. Details are unknown at this time. 9-13-1912 Judge Beazley was born in Richmond, Va., about 1842, being it is said, about 70 years of age. He came to Forrest City from Winchester, Tenn., about thirteen years ago, and made it his home ever since, until two weeks ago when due to his health, he went to Memphis for care at St.Josephs' Hospital. His friends here never heard from him after he left, and knew nothing of his condition until a message came he was dying. He expired last Friday, Sep.6,1912, and his remains were interred in the Confederate Cemetery in Memphis, under the auspices of the local camp. The career of Judge Beazley has been a remarkable one, but we do not have the data at hand. He was a Confederate soldier and was living at Memphis at the time of his enlistment. We think he was once in the newspaper business, at Knoxville, Tenn., where he was shot with a pistol in the hands of Judge Sneed of the Supreme Court, whom he had criticized in the columns of the paper, the ball shattering one of his arms. He was an able lawyer, but not particularly successful, because he usually championed the right, and justice is very fickle. He spent his declining years principally in trying to preserve the rightful heirs to the Hiram Evans estate, but the courts have been against him, and he had not succeeded. Judge Beazley had no family, having never married, and we know of no known relatives His illness and death were perhaps indirectly due to an runaway accident several months ago, at which time a mule that he was driving to a buggy, was frightened at an automobile, and subsequently threw the Judge and caused severe bruises, and he became emaciated after that, and died from inflammation of the bowels. He was a genial, polished gentleman of the old school, and was respected by all that knew him.

MITTIE MOORE, On October 10th, 1912, Mrs. Mittie Moore, beloved and idolized wife of Esq. Creed T. Moore, passed from earth to glory. For twenty-five sweet and sad years we trod life's rugged pathway together. No purer, nobler, sweeter soul e'er shared the life of man. She took me when a stranger, wandering from the folds of God, with no fortune but may talents, no friend but my strong right arm, a stranger, in a strange land she dared to chain her snow white barque to this stranger's craft, and oh, as I look back o'er these twenty-five years of earthly bliss, sprinkled with sorrow; as I sit alone today and brood o'er the past, I can now more fully than ever realize my loss. Thought reared an orphan and having never known the tender love and undying devotion of a mother, yet God inspired her pure and noble soul with a spirit and love that will never, no never die, but will live on enshrined forever in the hearts of those whom she was left behind. Mrs. Mittie Moore was a grand-daughter of Mitchel Taylor, and a daughter of Jonas Srum. She has one brother living at Colt, Ark., Laurence W. Srum, and one at Hartford, Ark., W. H. Srum. She was married to Creed T. Moore, a native of Chichasaw county Mississippi, in the month of September, 1887. Eight children blessed their union - four of whom preceded her to that beautiful home over there while four remain on earth to cheer and comfort as best they can her sad and broken hearted husband. Yes, dear wife, dear Mittie, you have left us, our brightest, earthly light has gone out, but the shadows of thy departed spirit will ever beckon me on to purer, higher and nobler things. I will meet you darling, I will greet you in the sweet bye and bye. Husband. TO MY WIFE. On October tenth, nineteen twelve, My darling wife left me. And went to Heaven to dwell. While I must live and be. Twenty-five sad and sweet years ago I met and loved this orphan girl Many sweet faces had I met before, But here in her, I found my little world. But oh my darling, no tongue or pen, Can e'er portray my beauteous gem, That noble brown and heart so pure, Will guide me on the Heaven secure. Those faithful hands - that mother's love, Was inspired by One above, Together we trod this earthly shore, Through eternity may we ever go. Mittie, darling you are gone, But In that Resurrection morn, I will meet you, I will greet you On that ever-green shore. Of our children you have four. Over on that other shore, Keep them closely, sweetly, dear, While I struggle on here. Of our children, I have four, Over here on this shore, Pray and watch me Angel wife, That I my children may guide aright. And now when time and earth have passed away, And we have awakened to another day, God grant that our little band of ten, Will be reunited in the end. CREED T. MOORE.- Brenda Huntley Added: 3/24/2007

One of the saddest and most impressive funerals ever held in this city was that solemnized here on Sunday when Herman Anderson, third son of Mr. and Mrs. O. B. Rollwage, of this city, was laid to rest in the family lot in the Forrest City cemetery, surrounded by a large concourse of sorrowing friends. The passing of this young man, standing, as, he was, upon the thresh hold of young manhood, with every prospect for a bright and promising future, was the source of poignant sorrow in a home where for so many years there has been nothing but happiness and the fullness of life, comfort and peace. Deceased was stricken with fever something over a month ago while at work with his brother in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Just as soon as the news of his illness reached this city, the devoted mother hurried to his side, and by her he was attended to in the family home in this city, where he was nursed lovingly and tenderly until the silent messenger came to still his voice and close his lips to those who cherished and loved and held his life as among their dearest and most priceless of earthly possessions. The face of the deceased's mother as she sat through the funeral service was a study that will not soon be forgotten. It seemed that the imprint which this bitter trial had left upon her noble features, was glorified and made beautiful through the fortitude and steadfastness of the Christian faith which sustained her, calm and unperturbed through it all. The hearts of all who saw the stricken mother were touched, and many perhaps, who were there through curiosity, remained to weep. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. George H. Kirker and a most pathetic song service was given by the Presbyterian choir. The pall bearers were, active - Walker Morrow, Charles Norton, Thomas Wortham, Edward Mallory, Homer Gee, Bert Mallory, Kenneth Knight and Walter Prewett; honorary- W. W. Campbell, Nathan Norton, Bard Nichols, John Gatling, Jr., Paul Johnson, John Johnson, John L. Pope, George E. Parker and Louis McDaniel. Among the out-of-town members of the family in attendance were Otto W. Rollwage of Muskogee, Oklahoma, Mrs. Sam Chandler of Union City, Tennessee, Mrs. Emma Berry and Mrs. Joe McGreggor of Cotton Plant and Mr. and Mrs. Ira Woodtln of Brinkley. The Times joins in sympathy for these dear friends in their great bereavement and affliction. May the spirit of the departed one abide in peace and rest. In another column we print a very beautiful tribute to the memory of deceased contributed by the young ladies and gentleman of the Forrest City high school, who were among his closest intimate friends in life. - Brenda Huntley Added: 3/24/2007

11-8-1912 - RICHARDSON - JAMES - A. - - - 9 11 1881 - 10 28 1912 - HUGHES - Birth: Sep. 11, 1881 Death: Oct. 28, 1912 The Forrest City Times, Nov. 8, 1912. DEATH OF JAMES A RICHARDSON. Let us now pause in our rapid flight across the vista of time, and pay tribute to him who lived among us, and who was our friend and neighbor. "Jim" Richardson was born in Franklin county, Alabama, September 11, 1881, and died October 28, 1912. He came with his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. H. S. Richardson, to St. Francis county, in the year 1895. Thus it will be seen that he was but a mere child when he crossed the great fathers of waters and joined destinies with Arkansas and her people. A father and mother, three sisters and one brother, a host of dear relatives and friends are left behind to mourn their loss and cherish his memory. It was our pleasure to know this boy for 17 years. We have watched him climb life's ladder rung by rung, and to say that his life, as far as it went, was a success, would be but to tell the plain unvarnished truth. A sturdy, industrious, hard-working, home-loving boy; a devoted son, affectionate brother and a faithful friend. What a record to leave behind us; what more could one desire?, and to crown it all, his dying hours were triumphantly happy. And his sun thought in its noon-tide zenith, sank slowly and peacefully amid the splendors of an eternal dawn. We knew him in life, we watched beside him in death. He lived a noble life, he died a triumphant death. Jim Richardson's place can never be filled. Time may soften but can never erase his memory. Weep not, dear parents; sorrow not, dear sisters, for in that sweet bye and bye you can live with Jim over on that other shore. Let us emulate his many noble virtues and cherish his memory, let us live as he lived, and we will make this a purer, fairer, sweeter and better world in which to live. Good bye Jim, we will meet you, we will greet you, over on that other shore. C. T. Moore- Brenda Huntley Added: 3/24/2007

These tragic events have taken from our midst one of the county's most and efficient officers, and on the other hand, brought grief to the homes of some of our best and loyal friends. Despite his waywardness, Cecil Mallory was loved by his grandmother, Mrs.Moore, where he could always go and find a welcome and by whom he was always loved and t whom he never appealed in vain. To Mrs.Moore, Cecil was never her "little boy," and she cherished, nourished and sheltered him, even when the world had turned its back on him, and even when the stories against him were the blackest. Young Cecil's father, Mr.Emmet Mallory, has always stood staunchly by his son and endeavored to keep him away from evil elements. His uncles, Messers.Ed, John and Ike Mallory, have never faltered in their loyalty and friendship to Cecil. It seems after killing Moore, Cecil decided that he would never surrender to the authority of the law. He took the deputy's gun and keys, recovered after he was shot down at Widener. He drew his gun when told to halt by two deputy's in pursuit, and they fired a double barrelled shotgun into Mallory, killing him within minutes without a word spoken.

1-5-1912 - SWEET - S. - EMORY - COL. - - - - FCTIMES - COLONEL SWEET REMINISCENT=Widener, Dec.30,1911-For the past 15 days, whenever you meet a man his first words are, did you ever see so much rain and mud in your life. I have frequently, but especially forty nine years ago, on the 15th of December,, when the 19th Tennessee Infantry was detached from the Army at Murphreesboro and sent to LaVergne fifteen miles from Nashville, and there employed as skirmishers to combat the whole Yankee army, until we reached Racon creek on the night of Dec.28th, where we burned the bridge, and delayed the battle of Murphreesboro one day, the Yankees having to rebuild the bridge before they could cross with their artillery. The rain having ceased on the night of the 29th, on the night of the 30th, we were placed in line of battle on the north bank of the Stone river, the ground frozen hard, we were not allowed a spark of fire or light; the Yankee army in line on the Wilkerson Pike with a battery composed of eighteen Napoleon guns, with their line of pickets and sharp shooters only 300 yards in front. We had orders from the commanding general, detailed each regiment by the Adjutant, to watch for the sky rocket that would go up in the town of Murphreesboro the next morning, for Cheatham's Division to open fire and advance on the enemy. We caught the Yankees napping, and got some of their good coffee and ham, something we had not had in a long time. I would like to know how many in St.Francis county today who were on that memorable field. And well do I remember on the night of the 31st, in line of battle all night, still cold and without light, and on Jan.1st, when the gallant General Raines charged those masked field pieces on the Murphreesboro Pike and thereby lost his own life, three comrades who were there, W.H.Coffey, W.H.McDaniel, and J.B.Hodges have crossed the river. I know no others besides myself, but possibly many others in this county were there. I had the honor, or misfortune to be there myself. I held the rank of high private in the rear rank of Company C, 9th Tennessee Infantry; since the close of war, I have held higher positions, having reached the rank as Colonel. Respectfully, S.Emory Sweet. Our Senior, Col. Edwin Landvoight, was in this memorable fight, as a member of the organization known throughout the army as "Clay King's Hellhounds," which was stationed on Breckinridges's right.
