The lady's demise was not unexpected as she had been intensely suffering for two months with a carbuncle, and while she rallied temporarily a few days since, it was impossible for one to be able to overcome the ravages of the malady with which she was affected, and her spirit passed quietly and peacefully into the realms of eternal joy yesterday at the hour above mentioned. The funeral will take place at 3 o'clock at the Madison cemetery, the procession leaving this city about 1 o'clock. Services at the grave site by Rev.A.N.Couch, of the Baptist church.
1-19-1900 - LITTLEFIELD - BUD - - - - There is a rumor to the effect that Bud Littlefield, who lives on the Hare farm, above Levesque, in Cross County, has commited suicide the first of the week by morphine. He is a brother to Gen. and Mrs.Zack Littlefield, of this county. We have no particulars.
1-19-1900 - LANDVOIGHT - D. - W. - - - D.W.Landvoight, of Washington, D.C., died Sunday Jan.17,1900, and was buried the following Wednesday. Deceased was a brother of Col.Ed.Landvoight, of the Times, and in the early 60's was a resident of Memphis where he worked at his trade of bookbinding. The sad news reached this office by wire and calls to mind that this is the third brother of our senior who has passed away in the last twelve months, leaving him the only surviving member of his immediate family. He was superintendent of the government printing office for nearly forty years, and leaves three grown children, two boys and one girl.
1-19-1900 - SIMMS - CHILDREN - - - - Emmet Simms, a farmer of Johnson township, came to town a few days ago and bought a bottle of worm seed oil, took it home and gave to three of his children by one teaspoonful, who he supposed had worms. Two of the children are dead and the third in critical condition as of yesteday. The proper dose was eight drops, and it was a terrible mistake.
1-19-1900 - BELL - JAS. - - MRS. - BELL - Died at her home near Palestine, Mrs.Jas.Bell. The deceased was born in Mississippi, and came to Arkansas when very young, and was married to Jas.Bell, Nov.10,1868.

May the Lord bless and comfort them in their sorrow. A Friend.
1-19-1900 - YOUNG - GRANT - - - - Killed His Man-Last Friday evening, about 4 o'clock, at the Bond place on the St.Francis river, a few miles south of Madison, Henry Griffin perforated Grant Young's anatomy with his leaden bullets from his trusty revolver, killing him shortly. It appears to be over a pair of shoes purchased from Griffin by Young. After coroner's inquest, it was found that Young had pursued an ax, and that Griffin was justified in his use of force.
1-26-1900 - THOMAS - CHILD - - - CITY - Squire and Mrs.W.S.Thomas of Democrat, buried their boy in the Forrest City cemetery Wednesday, Jan.24,1900, and our sympathy goes out to them in their sorrow.

Two children have blessed this union, one of whom is now a promising youth of 15 years, the other a charming girl of eight. Messrs.J.R.and F.M.Perkins, of Elkton, Ky, brothers of the deceased, were with him during the latter days of his illness, and carried his remains to their home Tuesday for interment. The sympathy and condolence of the Times and numerous friends goes out to the wife and children in their hour of sorrow.
1-26-1900 - BOYLE - P. - D. - - Calvary Cemetery-Memphis- - Tribute to Squire P.D.Boyle-The heartrending news that reached the city last Friday evening of the death of Squire P.D.Boyle in San Antonio, Texas, came in the nature of a shocking surprise to his family and intimate friends, who had heard from him in the a few days previous by letter in which he wrote cheerfully and hopefully. They were unprepared for the message of death which the telegram conveyed, and his devoted wife and family were grieved beyond expression. The wife learned that C.A.Folbre, formerly of this city, was with "Uncle Peter" as he was called which consoled her. P.D.Boyle was born March 13, 1835, at Greenock, Scotland, and came to America when quite a youth. He married Miss Eupheria Brown at Carrollton, Miss., on the 22nd day of August, 1861, and at the time of his death, they had lived together nearly forty years-congenial and happy companions. Three children blessed their union, all of whom are well known and associated with our people-J.G. (Bud), A.D.(Arthur), and Mrs.Geo.B.Pettus. Prior to 1876, he was a resident of Memphis having held the office of circuit clerk of Shelby County, Tenn., from 1870 to 1874. Two years later he came to this city where he has since resided with his family, and at the time of his death was 65 years of age. His body arrived in this city Sunday and remained in state at the late home until Monday, when it was taken to Memphis on the Choctaw, where the burial occurred in Calvary Cemetery. The funeral took place from the home his old time friend, Mr.Jas.Reilly, 155 Mosby Street, the services taking place at St.Peter's church.

Mrs.Cook had been in the hotel business in Forrest City some fifteen years or more, and was widely known for her excellent board and hospitable home. She was 38 years of age, and leaves an only daughter, Miss Hattie, and many friends to mourn her sudden and unexpected demise. In the anguish of grief and blackness of gloom which she feels at the death of her mother, Miss Hattie has our sympathy.

The death of this excellent lady, who claimed a wide circle of friends in this community, was the occasion of universal regret and sorrow, as was evidenced by the large number of who followed the remains to their last resting place, despite the gloomy and inclement weather. The funeral cortage from this city left about 11 o'clock and arrived at the cemetery about 1 o'clock, where it was joined by a large concourse of relatives, friends and acquaintances from Telico and Johnson townships, who had come to mingle their tears of sympathy and condolence with those of the bereaved family. In witnessing the bitter grief of her children, (two stalwart boys and one lovely girl, in the persons of Messrs.Tom and Drew, and Miss Emma Humphreys), we were forcibly impressed with the words of the Apostle, that "It is not all of life to live, nor all of death to die."

3-23-1900 - SCOTT - MARY - A. - MRS. - CITY - Two Funerals-In the evening at 3 o'clock, we were again assembled at the Methodist church with a large concourse of friends and relatives where Rev.W.C.Davidson preached an inspired and elequent sermon in eulogy of the life and character of one of our most venerable women, Mrs.Mary A.Scott, widow of the late Judge Robert T.Scott, and mother of Mr.Sam Scott, of Augusta, Ark. Mrs.Scott died last Friday, Mar.16,1900, at Jackson, Miss., where she had spent her last days, at the age of 65 years. Mrs.Scott was a noble, true-hearted, Christian woman. Her mission in life had been accomplished; her race was run. Since the death of her husband two years ago there had been nothing left for her but the waiting, listening intently-nye, we might say, eagerly--for the Master's call. Mrs.Scott has been a consistent Christian and member of the Methodist Church ever since she was a little girl.
3-30-1900 - McCORMICK - GEORGE - W. - - CITY - Death of George W.McCormick-As the Times goes to press today, the remains of one of our dear friends is being laid to rest in the Forrest City Cemetery. About ten days ago "Uncle George" McCormick, as he was familiarly known, was stricken from his usual walks with sickness. It came in the form of a chill, and rapidly developed into pleure-pneumonia. He suffered greatly and lingered until yesterday, Mar.29,1900, when he passed into another sphere. The funeral today at 11 o'clock was conducted by Eld.A.N.Couch, of the Baptist church, and a large concourse of bereaved relatives and sorrowing friends followed the remains to their last resting place. Mr.George W.McCormick was born in Henderson, Kentucky, May 3,1829, and if he had lived until the third of May, next year, he would be 71 years of age. He had been married four times, the last time in 1895 to Mrs.Permelia Kent Hodges, mother of Will, Sam and Lewis Hodges, who are well known. He leaves a wife and three children, Mrs.Clara Howell of Memphis, by his first wife, and Hugh and Vivia (Mrs.Bud Boyle) who will greatly miss fatherly protection and counsel. "Uncle George" was a cousin to McCormick of the "McCormick Reaper" fame, and a cousin of Leander J.McCormick who died just a month ago, and who before his death prepared a history of the McCormick family, accurately tracing the lineal descendants from their ancestor who lived in the year of our lord, 1628 down to the year 1898. His death extinguishes the old McCormick line, all of whom lived to a ripe old age. L.J. was 73 years old at his death. George McCormick came to Arkansas in the early 50's from Kentucky. He was one of the pioneer settlers, and by hard work, economy, and frugality was considered well-to-do at his death. As late as the last day of last summer, he was out in the fields, and brought his produce to town in his familiar wagon. In 1878 he patented a churn which took first premium at the Centennial Exposition, but his model was stolen and other parties benefitted by it. He also invented the "Planet Jr. Cultivator", we think, and from that received a considerable income.
4-20-1900 - ROBERTS - J. - Q. - - CITY - A telegram was received Sunday, Apr.15,1900, from Deckersville, this state announcing the death of Mr.J.Q.Roberts.

Mrs.Roberts and two little daughters accompanied the remains to this place. Mr.Roberts was well known in this city, having carried on the drug business here for several years prior to his removal to Deckersville. May kind providence watch o'er and care and protect the bereaved widow and fatherless children. Mrs.Roberts and her children were the guests of Mr.& Mrs.E.T.Gray while in the city.
4-27-1900 - PASLAY - ANNA - C. - MRS. - CITY - Death of Mrs.Anna C. Paslay-The hearts of numerous friends and acquaintances were stricken with sorrow, and universal sympathy went out to the family and relatives Monday morning, Apr.22,1900, when the news of the death of the beloved wife of Rev.W.H.Paslay was disseminated. The biography of this noble christian lady is a continuous picture of constancy and fortitude, and in the twilight of her earthly existence, although painfully afflicted and laid low by agonizing infirmities, she held firmly and steadfastly to the faith, trusting sweetly and courageously, relying firmly upon the promises of God, to whom she had surrendered all human influences, for the salvation of her soul. She was born in Jasper Co., Ga., in 1841, and came to Arkansas in Feb.1876, locating in Forrest City some years after her marriage in January of the year 1887. She was married to Elder J.H.Paslay in 1875, to which union three boys were added to the persons of William, Woodie, and Ernest. Mrs.Paslay, at the time of her demise, had been a member of the Baptist church for twenty-six years, and was a prominent character in religous and charitable movements in this city. She was interred in the Forrest City Cemetery.
4-27-1900 - PARHAM - WILLIE - LEE - - CITY - Death of Willie Lee Parham-Again we have to perform the sad duty of recording the death of a beloved citizen. On Apr.23,1900, the spirit of Willie Lee Parham winged its flight heavenward to its Maker. His illness and death bed were such as one rarely witnessed. Nearly two years ago he was stricken with that dread disease, consumption, and went to Texas in the hopes of restoring his health, but gradually grew worse, and was obliged to return, and was confined to his bed for nearly a year before his demise. All that love and medical attention could do was done. Kind friends visited him daily, and the devotion of his wife has no parallel-she was never tiring in her attention and love for her life companion. It was of no avail except to comfort, and the end came at last as a sweet relief to his sufferings. Being a consistent member of the Methodist church Mr.Parham learned early in life how to live, consequently he had no fear to meet grim death, and passed away without a struggle. The funeral services were held at the Methodist church Tuesday at 3 o'clock, Rev.W.C.Davidson officiating. The edifice was filled with bereaved relatives and sorrowing friends. After the services, the Woodmen of the World took charge of the remains and escorted them to the Forrest City Cemetery, where they were interred under the beautiful ceremony of the order. Willie Lee Parham was born in St.Francis county in 1872, and was barely twenty-eight years of age at his death. He was the youngest son of Capt.John Parham. He was a young man of sterling qualities, a true friend, and generous to a fault. He was married to Miss Lula Mason, daughter of Rev. & Mrs.J.A.Mason Jan.1,1896.

5-25-1900 - VADAKIN - LILY - B. - MRS. - CITY - In Memoriam-On Friday night, May 18,1900, our friend Mrs.Lily B.(Landvoight) Vadakin whom we had learned to love by years of association, for her many noble qualities, was claimed by that grim destroyer, death, and her earthly tabernacle became dissolved. Her history is written upon the eternal tablets of time; although not without blemishes, nor without faults, and transgressions, still brilliantly illuminated are some of the pages with many deeds of heroism, patience, gentleness and devotion, that constrains us to throw the mantle of charity over her shortcomings, remembering that "to err is human, to forgive divine." Her deeds of charity and benevolence which she dispensed in the years of her comparative affluence and happiness, relieving the sick and distressed, are glittering monuments to a soul which fate decreed to an early grave.
6-1-1900 - DUNLAP - GREEN - - - - Green Dunlap and Pope McKnight, farmers working land in the Wyld's neighborhood, became involved in a difficulty the first of the week and McKnight shot and killed Dunlap, shooting him through the head and causing him to die instantly. The struggle occured over a squabble about Dunlap's horses eating McKnight's crops. He gave himself up to the sheriff, but was released as it appeared to be self defense.
6-1-1900 - COLLIER - J. - H. - - - A telegram received yesterday by Mr.Joel E.Wynne from Ennis, Texas announced the death of Mr.J.H.Collier at that place. Mr.Collier had been an accountant at the firm of J.W.Beck & Co. in Forrest City. Mr.Collier was not a complainer and withstood his afflictions with an admirable christian fortitude.
6-15-1900 - HEMENWAY - HARRIET - - MRS. - JOHNSON - 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.
