HARLEY, Hilliard H.
The Savannah News; Tuesday 31 August 1869

            ASSASSINATION OF DR. H.H. HARLEY—Our community was shocked on Wednesday morning, upon the circulation of the fact of the cruel and dastardly assassination of the gentleman whose name heads this article.
            From the findings of the empanelled jury we glean these particulars:  Dr. H. was in charge of the business of Mr. Babcock, cutting and hauling cross ties for the Brunswick and Albany Railroad, with headquarters at College plantation, about two miles from Bethel.  On Tuesday night, about ten o’clock while Dr. H was sitting in his cabin, an open log house, writing at his desk, with one or two others present, a gun was passed through the logs and discharged, the murderous fire terribly mutilating his head, his brains staining the walls of the house.  He survived the fatal wound but a few brief moments.
            As there are dozens of rumors as regards the probably cause of this assassination, and as it is probably that the affair will be thoroughly sifted, and, if possible, the guilty party or parties brought to punishment, we refrain from publishing any of the unpleasant rumors.
            Dr. H. was a young man, lately a resident of Camden county, in this State, but a native of South Carolina, where he has a father, brothers, and sisters now residing.  He served during the late war in the C.S.A. as assistant Surgeon, with Maxwell’s Battery.  Since the war he has been connected with the timber business in this vicinity.
            His remains were brought to our city Thursday and interred with Masonic honors, by Ocean Lodge, of which he was a member.  Brunswick Appeal.

COL. FRANK H. HARRIS PASSES AWAY TODAY—DEAN OF LOCAL BAR AND AGED CONFEDERATE VETERAN DIES AT HOME HERE

            Col. Frank Henry Harris, 85, dean of the Brunswick bar and one of the last two surviving Confederate veterans living in Glynn county, died at his home here at 11 o’clock this morning, following an illness of some time.  Col. Harris had been ill at his home for weeks, but his condition was not critical until last week, when he suffered an injury in a fall at his residence.  Because of his advanced age the accident proved serious and his condition had been critical for the past few days.
            Col. Harris, often called the “boy soldier of the confederacy”, was born at Wood Hill, Richmond county, Georgia, Nov. 24, 1846.  He enlisted in company B, 27th Georgia infantry of the Confederate army in that county May 16, 1863, when only 17 years of age and he served continuously through the war.  On June 3, the same year, he was appointed a fourth corporal, and several weeks later, was made a fifth sergeant.  He was with General Joseph E. Johnstone’s [sic] army when it surrendered at Greensboro, N.C., April 26, 1865, then being a member of the company commanded by Capt. Edward Tatnall Miller.
            Since the war Col. Harris had always taken a leading part in the Confederate veterans organization and had many times served as commander of John B. Gordon camp of this city.  He attended many of the reunions and always manifested great interest in the Confederacy.
            The deceased was a grandson of john Milton, of Georgia, an historical character and of fame in the Continental army.  He was also a grandson of Lewis Arthur Harris, a soldier of the war of 1812.
            Col. Harris was admitted to the bar May 3, 1873, and with they exception of eight years he resided in Tampa, practiced his profession in this city.  He was one of the workers assisting in the establishment of the Democratic party in the reconstruction days, and although a mere boy, he did great work with the leaders of his party.
            Mr. Harris was the youngest child of Benjamin and Maria Milton Harris.  In September, 1870, he was married to Caroline Margaret Wade, of Savannah, and to this union five children were born, four of whom survive, John L. Harris, of Tampa, Mrs. Hayden McKay, Miss Meta Harris and Mrs. William Bruand, all of this city.  After the death of his first wife he was later married to Miss Louise Westberry, of this city, and to this union one child was born, who passed away at the age of five.
            During all of the years that Col. Harris practiced law in Brunswick he was considered one of the leading members of the bar and he continued his practice until unable to do so because of illness a short time ago.  He had served as judge of the old Glynn county court, and had always been considered an able jurist.
            Funeral services will be held from St. Marks Episcopal church Wednesday afternoon at 3 o’clock, with the Rev. Royal K. Tucker, rector, officiating and Mortician Edo Miller in charge.  The funeral will be attended by the Brunswick Riflemen and the members of the local lodge of Knights of Pythias.  Active pall bearers will be H.F. duBignon, A.O. Townsend, Millard Reese, D.W. Krauss, Frank M. Scarlett, A.A. Nathan.  Members of the Brunswick Bar Association will act as honorary pall bearers.

DEATH OF JUDGE HARRIS

            He is gone!  He passed away about nine o’clock on Monday night last, calmly and quietly, though rather suddenly.  He has been suffering for some time past with rheumatism, but was considered much better.  At eight o’clock on Monday night he was seized with a convulsion, from which he never rallied, nor was he again conscious.
            Of his noble qualities of head and heart we fain would speak, for none feel for him a warmer attachment than the writer, but language fails us, and we leave to abler pens this sad but loving duty.  Our whole community is saddened by this unexpected blow, and bow in meek submissions to the ‘hand that smites.”

TRIBUTE OF RESPECT

            The Glynn County Agricultural Association met at 11 A.M., at office J.M. Dexter and was called to order by James M. Couper, President, and after the transaction of regular business, the following resolution was offered:
            RESOLVED, that this Association have heard of the death of Hon. J.L. Harris, with deep sorrow and regret, and hereby express our sympathy with the bereaved family in their great affliction, and bow in submission to the will of Him who giveth and taketh away.

J.M. DEXTER, Sec’y.

THE FUNERAL

            On Wednesday afternoon last, our people turned out en masse to pay the last tribute to our esteemed townsmen, Judge John L. Harris, whose death is mentioned elsewhere in these columns.  At 3:30 sharp the hearse containing his remains left his residence, followed by quite a procession, and wended its way to the Methodist Church, where was assembled an immense number of people.  Here was read the usual burial service of the M.E. Church by the pastor, Rev. R.L. Honiker, in an impressive manner, which, interspersed with appropriate music by the choir, made that vast assemblage pause and think, and in many a heart, no doubt, came up the unwelcome thought, “I, too, must die.”
            The procession was then formed in the following order:
            Brunswick Brass Band,
            Oceanic Fire Company,
            Mayor and Alderman,
            Hearse, with the legal fraternity as pall-bearers,
            Pastor,
            Family and kindred of deceased,
            Citizens generally.
            Of this last class we might well say “their name was Legion,” for it comprised scores from every class of society.  From the highest to the lowest, all seemed anxious to add their mite in swelling this last tribute to the memory of one beloved by all.
            As the procession moved forward, the Band played appropriate airs, and the vast assemblage moved silently on to Oak Grove Cemetery, where we laid him down to rest, waiting the last trump that shall wake his sleeping ashes.
            In the death of Judge John L. Harris, our people have met a loss not yet realized.  The rich and the poor alike will miss him, for he was a friend to all.
            To that aged mother, now ripe for the better land, that fond and devoted wife and partner, that only daughter and child, and those sad brothers, all mourning because “he is not,” we extend the heartfelt sympathy of one who has drunk of the cup of sorrow, and knows full well its deepest bitterness.
            The deceased was fifty-six years of age.

IN MEMORIAM

            At a meeting of the members of the bar in the city of Brunswick, held on the sixth day of May, 1879, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted:
            WHEREAS, In the dispensation of a mysterious Providence, our esteemed brother, the Hon. John L. Harris, Judge of the Brunswick Circuit, has been taken from earth, its cares, troubles, trials, and duties, to another, and we trust and believe a better world, where sorrow and suffering and pain are unknown;
            AND WHEREAS, It is fit and proper that we who were so closely associated with him in the daily walks of life, as lawyer, jurist and companion, should take some action whereby our respect for his memory may be placed on record, and our share in the last sad tribute of respect at his funeral be defined, therefore
            Be it resolved, That in his death the community have lost a true and tried and able champion of their rights and interests, and able lawyer and jurist, a benevolent, kind hearted, genial man, whose failings, if he had them, leaned to virtue’s side, whose loss leaves a blank in our community, and is a misfortune to the whole State of Georgia, and to us who were so closely associated with him by professional and business relations, a loss impossible of description.
            Resolved, That the deepest sympathy is felt for each member of his family thus suddenly deprived of father, husband, brother, son and uncle, and that each of us hereby tender, as individuals and as a body, our heartfelt sympathy for them in this hour of deep gloom and sorrow, only relieved by the proud consciousness that his was a life well spent.
            Resolved, That each member of the Bar will, for the space of thirty days from this date wear crape on his left arm as a tribute of respect to the memory of the deceased, and that crape be placed upon the outer door of each law office until after the funeral, and that we will attend the funeral in a body.
            Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be furnished to the family of the deceased, and another cop furnished to the editor of the Advertiser for publication, with a request that other papers throughout the State will copy the same.
            Resolved, That a committee of three be appointed by the Chairman of this meeting, whose duty it shall be to draft for publication and presentation to the members of his family an article giving a brief resume of his life and services, expressive of our respect for his memory, and that the Savannah News, Telegraph and Messenger.  Atlanta Constitution and Augusta Constitutionalist and other papers throughout the State be requested to publish the same as a matter of public interest.

TRIBUTE TO THE MEMORY OF THE HON. JOHN L. HARRIS BY THE BRUNSWICK BAR

            Death loves a shining mark, and when a man is stricken down by that grim power, who has exercised a large influence upon his section and his State, has formed a large circle of acquaintance, and is esteemed and loved for his many excellent qualities of head and heart, we pause and realize more deeply the old, old truth that all must die, and that the day, the hour, or the month, or year of Death’s coming are mysteries which we cannot pierce and fathom and understand.
            Where is Judge Harris?  But three weeks ago he sat upon the bench in the exercise of all his intellectual faculties, strong, capable, earnest and conscientious in the performance of his duty as the interpreter of the law to the people, the arbitrator of their disputes, the head of that system of jurisprudence for his circuit, which in the civilization of the present day replaces the violent modes of settlement of barbarous times.
            Home, from Ware Superior Court, with his family, he complained of a cold, contracted at Ware during the fearful storm of last month, which we all so well remember, and took his bed, no one dreaming (unless, perhaps, he may have had a premonition of the end) of any fatal result.  Fever set in, but was kept under control.—His mind, with a few exceptions when the fever was upon him, remained bright and clear.  The play of his genial humor enlivened the sick room.  A table by the head of his bed was covered with the books of his favorite authors.  Every year since he arrived at mature manhood he has renewed his acquaintance with Latin and Greek, reading the Greek Testament, Horace, Virgil and other authors, and those books had been read by him on the day he died, and lay upon his table, where he had laid them on the night of the 5th, when death came so suddenly into his peaceful home and took husband, son, father, uncle, brother, away from the cares of earth to another and a better world.
            Only last Saturday he was sitting on his front porch in the beautiful sunset hour of that charming May day, with his family and friends gathered around him, discoursing in his quaintly humorous way of many things, and then as in the past days of his illness the news came to our people that he was better and would soon be able to again resume his work as Judge of the circuit.  So fully was this believed that his physician, who had visited him daily, felt fully authorized to leave his bedside to attend the medical and health conventions in Atlanta.  So fully was it believed by our people, that many of his best and closest friends, knowing that he had many visitors, fearful that they might weary him by a visit, stayed away, believing they would soon meet him on the streets, and be able to congratulate him upon his recovery.  Monday evening, upon the night upon which he died, the Bar met informally to consult about Camden and Charlton Superior Court, and proposed on the next day to send a committee to consult with him as to the propriety of asking another Judge to hold those courts.
            Monday night he sat in his bed talking with his family until 9 P.M., when suddenly, without premonition or warning of any kind, he was seized with a convulsion, which lasted but a moment, and although every effort was made to revive him, all efforts were fruitless, and there is little doubt that the first seizure was his death struggle.  The blow to his family and friends, and to the community, was all the more fearful from its suddenness.  It is believed the immediate cause of his death was rheumatism of the heart.
            While his intellectual faculties remained bright and active to the last, he has been failing in health for years, and it is believed that he has felt conscious of the approach of death, and has kept it from family and friends out of regard for their feelings.
            Yesterday the community paid the last sad tribute of respect to his memory, and such a funeral gathering has not been known here for years, if ever before.  The bright and beautiful flowers of May which he loved so well, were sent and placed upon his coffin in rich profusion.  The Bar, the Masonic fraternity, the fire company and band, and the Mayor and Council, attended in a body.  The church was filled to overflowing.  Rich and poor, old and young, all classes, colors and conditions gathered around his open grave, attesting the love and respect he had inspired by his long life of usefulness and benevolence.
            At a meeting of the Bar on the 6th day of May, 1879, the morning after his death, the undersigned were appointed a committee to perform the painful yet pleasing task of preparing a short sketch of his life, services and character for publication.  We approach the task with diffidence and ask that any mistake or failure on our part may be condoned and forgiven, in view of the deep respect and love which we, in common with each member of the Bar of the circuit and of the people thereof, entertained for him.
            Judge Harris was born near Augusta, in Richmond county, at the old homestead named “Woodhill.”  The Miltons were related to the family on the mother’s side, the Secretary of State of that name being the grandfather of Judge Harris.  Gov. John Milton, of Florida, was his cousin.
            He was born in May, 1823, making him fifty-six years of age at the time of his death.  He attended a school in Richmond county, kept by a Mr. Gardiner, another kept by Mr. Edmund Graves, and another by a gentleman named Scruggs; and from there went to Pendleton, S.C., and attended a classical school taught by a Dr. Wayland.  In his childhood his mind was very bright and active, giving promise of a bright future.  At Dr. Wayland’s school he took a high rank as classical scholar, which he has sustained through life.
            From there he went to Asheville, North Carolina, to a school taught by Dr. Dickson, where he remained for two years, and was prepared to enter Columbia College, but by reason of the losses sustained by his father in the crisis of 1842-43, it was impossible to carry out that intention.  Dr. Dickson, who took a great interest in his welfare, then took him back to Asheville as assistant teacher, undertaking to complete his education.  But shortly after this Dr. Dickson changed his plans, breaking up his school, and Judge Harris returned to Pendleton, South Carolina, and started a classical school himself, continuing it for a year, when he returned to Augusta and commenced the study of the law under Judge Starnes; was admitted to the bar in Augusta, practiced there for some time; removing to Atlanta in 1848, where he continued the practice of the law.  He held the position of City Attorney for a number of years, and was elected a member of the Legislature from Fulton county in 1855; removed to Brunswick in 1857, going into partnership with his brother, Benjamin F. Harris, in the practice of the law.
            In 1858 he was elected for the Legislature to fill a vacancy caused by the death of the Hon. J.W. Moore; and in the ensuing year was elected for the full term in the Lower House on the same ticket with the Hon. Thomas Butler King, who was elected Senator, both being elected upon the issue of State aid—and in the House, during his term, was a consistent, earnest and able advocate of State aid, making an argument in its favor which commanded the admiration even of it opponents.  He was a member of the Secession Convention from the county of Glynn, being elected with Dr. D.H.B. Troup, and advocated secession.
            When the war came on he enlisted as a private in the Brunswick Riflemen, in May, 1861; was promoted to a Corporalship, and upon the reorganization of that corps, two months afterwards, he left that company and joined Captain Hopkins’ company of cavalry as a private.  On the reorganization of Captain Hopkins’ company, he was elected First Lieutenant, and on the organization of the Fourth Georgia Cavalry was elected a Major, and afterwards Lieutenant Colonel, serving in the last named position until the close of the war, and led the regiment in every engagement except at Ocean Pond, Florida, where Colonel Clinch was wounded.
            After the war he returned to his home in Richmond county, at the old homestead, where his wife and family had remained, and commenced farming, going resolutely to work to rebuild the shattered fortunes of himself and family.  In the autumn of 1865 he removed from there to Waresboro, in Ware county, and again took up the practice of his profession, at once taking the position of leading lawyer of his circuit.  In 1868 he stumped the First Congressional district for General Gordon for Governor, and Seymour and Blair for President and Vice President.  His name was before the Congressional Convention of that year, but he was disqualified at that time, and therefore did not receive the nomination.  In 1870 he was solicited to be a candidate for Congress from the First Congressional district, but declined on account of ill health in a humorous but earnest article in the Savannah News.
            In 1872, ’74, ’76, ’78, Judge Harris’ name was frequently mentioned in connection with the nomination for Congress, but in each instance he declined to allow his name used.
            In 1870 he removed from Ware county to his farm in Glynn county, practicing law in Brunswick in partnership with William Williams, Esq.  He removed to Brunswick in the fall of 1871, continuing the practice of the law until January, 1873, when he was appointed Judge of the Superior Court of the Brunswick Circuit by Governor Smith, and to which position he was elected in December, 1878.
            Thus briefly we have sketched the main incidents of his life.  There is much, did space permit, which might be said of his life and character.  Much which did not relate to his public life, but to the man in the family relation and a private citizen.  In his family relations he was a kind and loving son to the aged mother who mourns his loss.  A loving husband and father to his wife and daughter so suddenly left in mourning.  A true brother, an affectionate uncle, a faithful friend.  Yet he was more than this.  He was the friend of the weak, the wayward, the poor, the unfortunate, both in word and deed.  His charity and benevolence was not of the order which is blazoned from the house tops, but it ever responded to the cry of distress and trouble.
            We have seen nothing more touching than the gathering of the mass of colored people who mourned yesterday his loss in the cemetery and reverently laid their offering of flowers on his grave.  They knew he was their friend; they knew he had dealt justly by them in the court house and in the every day affairs of life.
            Of Judge Harris as a lawyer, there is no need to speak.  He was well known as an able, fearless and untiring advocate—indeed, was better known in that sense than as a Judge.  The play of his humor, the magnetism of his manner, captivated juries and won verdicts.  His was the light armor of forensic effort.  Heavy blows were not his forte, but the flash of his weapon was bright, its point sharp and piercing, well fitted to his purpose.  But his attacks seldom left a sting behind them, and if he has, after his thirty-odd years of practice, made a permanent enemy in Georgia or elsewhere we have yet to know it.  As an orator, and especially as an orator before the people in the discussion of public questions, he was popular and powerful, controlling his audiences with that power which, for want of a better word, we call personal magnetism, and carrying them captive whatever their previous convictions while the spell was on them.
            He had faults, and who not but they were of the lighter order, and overbalanced by his many good qualities of head and heart.  His loss is not a loss to his family alone, or to the people of our city, his adopted home.  We mourn his loss, and Southern Georgia also is in mourning, and the sad refrain is echoed back from the hills and valleys of North Georgia, where his early life was spent.  His death has left a blank.  His memory will remain green in the hearts of the thousands who knew and loved him, through the years which are to come.  Requiescat in peace.

FUNERAL OF PROF. J. WILLIAM HART—Sunday afternoon friends followed him to last resting place.

            The following from the Athens Banner tells of the funeral of Prof. J.W. Hart whose tragic death on Jekyl so shocked the people of Brunswick.
            “The funeral of Prof. James William Hart was held Sunday afternoon at six o’clock at Emmanuel church, of which he had been a member since coming to Athens.
            “Scores of sorrowing friends had sent beautiful floral tributes in token of their grief and the floral offering of the State College of Agriculture of which institution’s faculty he had been a popular member, was one of the loveliest ever seen here.
            “The large auditorium of Emmanuel church was filled to its capacity.  Prof. Hart had been a resident of Athens for only a few years, but had made hundreds of warm friends, who deeply lamented his tragic taking off.
            “The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Troy Beatty, rector of Emmanuel church.  The choir sang the songs, “Jesus, Lover of My Soul” and “Blest Be the Tie That Binds,” and Dr. Beatty read the solemn burial services of the church.
            “The casket was bourne to the hearse by the pall bearers, Dr. A.M. Soule, Prof. M.P. Jarnagin, Mr. M.P. O’Callahan, Dr. Coleman, Mr. C.A. Whittle, Mr. R.T. Goodwyn, Mr. P.W. Vanatter and Mr. J.C. Helmer.  The remains were interred in Oconee cemetery.
            “No death has occurred in recent years that has thrown a greater gloom over Athens.  Prof. Hart was one of the most popular of our citizens and together with his charming family enjoyed the friendship of hundreds of our best people.
            “He had left Athens only because his new position was by far a better position than he had and he deemed it his duty to go.  But for the manifest advantages of his new position he would have remained here, for he was very fond of Athens and was deeply attached to his many friends.
            “Prof. Hart was a man in every way devoted to his duty.  He never shirked anything that was in line with that duty when it became his duty to handle a delicate situation on Jekyl Island, he attempted to do so.  He fell before the deadly fire of a misguided man and laid his life upon the altar of duty.  In this sad hour it may not be much consolation to the bereaved ones but years hence it will be worth much to look back.

J.P. HARVEY’S SUDDEN DEATH

            Brunswick, Ga., November 13—(Special)—Brunswick was shocked this morning to learn that John P. Harvey, a prominent citizen, who has occupied many high places of public trust and honor, had died suddenly at midnight, while sitting in a chair at Dr. Hugh Burford’s office.  He was well and hearty all day, but at night began suffering with headache.  He came down town for relief and Dr. Burford gave him an injection of morphine and left the room to go upstairs and finish dressing to answer a sick call.  During an absence of not more than five minutes, he heard Mr. Harvey walking around and coughing, but when he returned Harvey was dead.

THE LAST RITES—The Remains of John P. Harvey Laid to Rest—Under the Sod of Oak Grove—An Impressive Funeral—Fifty Carriages in Line.

            The remains of Brunswick’s dead official, Mr. John P. Harvey, were followed to their eternal place of rest today by a host of friends forming a procession six blocks in length and were interred in the presence of as large a concourse as ever assembled in our oak-shaded city of the dead.
            The remains were conveyed from the residence of the deceased on I street, to McKendree church at 11 a.m.  The church was crowded with sympathizing friends, Rev. Ed. F. Cook, after the singing of “Asleep in Jesus” by the choir, read the ritualistic scripture lesson.  The choir sang, “Jesus, Lover of my Soul,” and Rev. Cook followed with a deeply impressive talk, in which he alluded in the close relationship existing between himself and the deceased, and stated that his feelings were too deep for the usual words of eulogy.  The services were concluded by the singing of a touching solo by Mrs. Ed. F. Cook.
            The procession formed in front of the church and moved down E street with fifty carriages in line.
            The police force, in command of Assistant Chief Levison, and the Oglethorpe and Rathbone Lodges, Knights of Pythias, fifty strong, in command of Captain T. Newman, preceded the carriages.
            The mayor and the entire board of aldermen, in carriages, formed part of the procession.
            The pall-bearers were Messrs. H.J. Read, L.C. Bodet, E. Brobston, A.J. Crovatt, A.D. Gale, Jr., and John C. Green.
            The remains were interred in the family lot at Oak Grove Cemetery, with the reading of the impressive burial service of the Methodist Church, and the solemn ceremonials of the Knights of Pythias.
            Mr. Henry J. Harvey, of Macon, brother of the deceased; Mrs. E.E. Judge, of Nashville, his sister, and Mrs. J.H. Bryant, of Sparks, Ga., his daughter, were here to attend the funeral.
            The stricken widow was completely prostrated with grief, and unable to attend the funeral.
            And thus passes from our midst one of our best and most favorably known citizens.  Esteemed by all who knew him, and his death sorrowed by an entire community.

HAZLEHURST, George Hall
Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 1 December 1883; pg. 2 col. 2

DEATH OF COL. GEORGE H. HAZLEHURST

            The wires on Sunday last announced the death of Col. Geo. H. Hazlehurst of Chatanooga [sic], a brother of our townsman Dr. Robt. Hazlehurst—his remains were taken to Macon on Monday and interred in the Macon cemetery.  Col. Hazlehurst was born in this county in 1823, and was educated in Pennsylvania, and was, withal, a gentleman of high character, as will be seen from the following extracts from the Telegraph and Messenger, written by a classmate who knew him well:
            Mr. Hazlehurst’s public life was marked by a singular adherence to one determination—the determination to advance and develop his native land.  Throughout a long life of labor, he seems never to have lost sight of this steadfast intention, and every public act of his was in sympathy with it.  In the bosom of his family his ruling impulse seemed to have been to advance the interests of and care for those to whom he was bound by ties of relationship.  He was a loving father and guardian in every sense of the word, and was venerated by a large family who looked to him for guide and protection.  He has discharged his trust nobly, rendering justice to all, and leaving a name to be honored in the land that gave him being.  To-day, his labors ended, his work all done, he will be laid to rest amidst his departed loved ones, on the banks of the Ocmulgee.
            Mr. Hazlehurst began his business life as rodman in the surveying party employed to survey and locate the Florida lands.  He afterwards joined the party engaged in surveying the Macon and Western railroad.  From this section he went to Tennessee and gained employment upon the Nashville and Chattanooga road, then being built.
            Mr. Hazlehurst’s first important work, however, was the locating and building of the New Orleans and Jackson railroad.  He received the appointment of engineer of this road at a large salary, and despite the fact that a predecessor had just died of yellow fever in the same position, went energetically to work and completed the enterprise.  He afterwards was engaged in building the Macon and August railroad and the Macon and Brunswick railroad, holding the position of President upon the former for a while, and afterwards the positions of President and chief engineer of the latter, a strong testimonial of the confidence reposed in him by capitalists.
            When the Macon and Brunswick railroad passed into the hands of the State, Colonel Hazlehurst became associated with Col. A.J. Lane, and with him built the Montgomery and Eufaula railroad, the North and South railroad, the New Orleans, Shreveport and Alexandria railroad, and the Pensacola and Atlantic.  He was engaged upon the Mississippi Valley road when he was stricken down with malaria, which, complicated with chronic dyspepsia, resulted in his death.
            Col. Hazlehurst passed through the war in active service, and planned the defenses of Vicksburg.  History bears record to the admirable arrangement of the fortifications, which were never carried until starvation had exhausted their defenders.
            It has fallen to the lot of but few men to work greater benefits and more lasting results for his country.  In addition to the vast development afforded by his railway construction, Col. Hazlehurst was engaged in many enterprises, all of which were crowned with success.  During all these years of labor he has been establishing a character which enabled him to bring into this country by means of powerful friends many millions of dollars.  His life’s labors now ended, he sleeps the sleep of the just.  Peace to his ashes.

A Sad Death

            It is our mournful duty to chronicle the demise of Mr. J. McN. Hazlehurst, which sad event occurred on Tuesday morning last in this city at the residence of his brother-in-law, Dr. W.B. Burroughs.  Mr. H. has been for several months suffering from a cancerous tumor, and, although every possible effort was made to save his life, all proved futile, and he passed away in the full vigor of his manhood.  The deceased was a son of the late Leighton W. Hazlehurst, of Waynesville, and was highly esteemed, not only for his excellent family connections, but for many virtues of his own.  The remains were taken on Wednesday to Waynesville for interment by special train, chartered by Dr. Burroughs.  A large party of friends from this city accompanied the body to its last resting-place.

Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 12 July 1884; pg. 3 col. 5

IN MEMORIAM

            J. McNish Hazlehurst is asleep.  We carried him to his last resting place in the old family cemetery at Waynesville, where but so short time before his honored father had preceded him.  The rain fell gently as the train carried us and him from Dr. Burroughs’ home, which had been his in his last illness, nature joining in the general mourning that one so young, so strong, so manly, so loveable, must leave us, and after we left the cars and while the services were being concluded in the little church near his open grave, the clouds poured forth another shower of tears, but as we placed him with gentle, loving hands in that open grave, and the solemn service of the church was pronounced, the sunlight struggled through the clouds, and seemed an emblem of the hope, yea, belief, we have that he has gone to a better and brighter life beyond the grave; for in his sphere he lived a manly and true life, and the world is better that he lived.
            But 37 years of age, it was hard for him to realize that he must die, and he endured much of suffering under the surgeon’s knife in the hope that he might reverse the verdict, which, sooner or later, is pronounced upon all of us; but when he realized that death was inevitable he met it like a man, and quietly left his simple direction as to the personal effects which had been his companions in life, and will be treasured now as mementoes of his life, sad reminders of this sad ending of a life brightly begun.  Loving sisters were with him through his weary weeks of suffering, and all that could be done to mitigate his pain was done.  Hundreds of schoolmates, comrades, friends who knew Mac Hazlehurst and loved him, join with his immediate family in mourning, but all join in the intuitive feeling that he has met the reward of a brighter and better life.  C.

FIVE DIE IN ONE DAY—The Death Wagon Rattles O’er the Streets from Morn Till Night—MINISTERS HURRY FROM BED TO BED—Messengers Wait at the Doors to Summon Them from One Chamber of Death to Another—The Pestilence Spreads.

            Brunswick, Ga., October 21.—(Special.)—Death did its work today, and tonight, beneath the sod in Oak Grove cemetery, five victims of the yellow plague sleep within its arms.  Three more are beyond the power of earthly skill to save.  Down Brunswick’s streets today the dead wagon moved rapidly, carrying the unfortunates to the graves that awaited them.  Back and forth the wagon passed, and as one grave was filled another was dug beside it.  The ministers, from early dawn, drove rapidly to the bedsides of their people; but their prayers could not save the lives they so anxiously watched passing away.  As the breath left the body of one, a messenger stood at the door waiting to direct the ministers to another.  They were powerless to save, and could only pray.  Noble, self-sacrificing ministers, He above alone knows all the good work they have done today.  As the newspaper men hurried fro house to house, getting a list of the dead and dying, they, at least, saw something of their labors.  The ministers of Brunswick, known now throughout the land, can die, should it be ordered, with the consciousness that they labored through famine, pestilence and death for their people’s sake, and at the throne of God, when their time comes, none can doubt, who knows their work, the reward that will await them.  In the golden book, the names of Thompson, Cook, Hennessey, Winn and Perry will shine with a light that cannot be dimmed, for their record is one of noble deeds.  C.W.D.

DYING RAPIDLY—The Pestilence Breaks Its Previous Records at Brunswick

            Brunswick, Ga., October 21.—There were officially reported today five deaths and forty-nine new cases, the record breaker of the epidemic.  The dead on the list are:  Whites—Burr Winton, Herman Grundy, Alexander Pritchard and Mrs. Oberlauter.
            At 9:30 o’clock tonight William C. Weed died.  He was a victim of imprudent nursing.  His nurse, through feeling for the man begging for food, like all yellow fever patients do, gave him, against the physician’s orders, some nourishing food.  He might have been saved had this not been done.
            The new cases are:  Whites, in Brunswick, 7; Hilda Poulsen, Bessie Firth, Samuel Silverstein, W.A. Line, Thomas Mulligan, F. McC. Brown and Mrs. Currie.
            Whites, on St. Simon’s, 3—Thomas Lambright, Monroe Lambright and Mrs. Taylor, making the total new cases of whites 10.
            To the official lists of deaths should be added one that occurred this afternoon, Lytton Hazelhurst, a negro boy on North Amherst street.
            Besides this a negro child, Pinkie Wilson, died and her death certificate, issued October 18th by Dr. Robert Hazelhurst, read:  “Cause of death, yellow fever; dead before physician reported her.”  This death, although occurring three days ago, has never been reported.
            This makes a total of seven yellow fever deaths that should be counted today.  Two others are hourly expected to die, Ernest George and Adolph Lavine.  There is no possible hope for them.  Two other deaths occurred today, Essie Beckman, a negro child, and Mrs. Scranton, but neither from yellow fever.
            The warm weather following the few days of rain and the cool spell has brought the disease rapidly to the front.  There are now 258 under treatment, 60 white and 198 colored.  The outlook is not cheering for twenty-five days yet.  When the dread of famine seems to be disappearing and the people are breathing easier deaths roll up and the fever increases alarmingly.
            One new case is reported at Jesup today, a son of R.W. Tindall, white.
            Four patients were discharged.  Six are now under treatment.

HICKMAN, William
Historical Newspapers, Birth, Marriage, & Death Announcements, 1851-2003; The Atlanta Constitution; 27 November 1897

DIED WHILE IN A RELIGIOUS TRANCE

            Brunswick, Ga., November 26.—(Special.)  William Hickman, reported in these dispatches last night as in a religious trance, died today.  Hickman lay unconscious from the time he fell in a trance and died in that condition.

Historical Newspapers, Birth, Marriage, & Death Announcements, 1851-2003; The Atlanta Constitution; 29 November 1897

THE NATURE OF HIS DEATH—Was It from Fever or from Religious Excitement?

            Brunswick, Ga., November 28.—(Special.)—The tragic death of young Will Hickman caused much comment.
            The Times has gathered fuller details, which sheds light upon the affairs.  The first story told was to the effect that the young man was under the influence of excitement incident to the emotional nature of the meeting now being conducted at the six-mile crossing, fell into a trance, and could not be awakened.  Another story is now told in connection with the case.  It is said that Hickman’s real affection was a case of fever, and that he became violently ill at the meeting on Sunday night and remained unconscious.  The physicians were unable to do anything for him.  He died without regaining consciousness.  His case was a very peculiar one.
            The religious trance story is still told by some of those who were at the meeting.  It is said that the young man dropped off suddenly at a particularly excitable period of the service.  Some insist that it was a case of hypnotism, and that others have been similarly affected during the meeting.
            The meetings are attended nightly by a large crowd of people, both from the city and the county.  They are marked by great enthusiasm, and many of the manifestations of religious emotion.  Many shout, some fall flat on the ground and groan, others yell at the top of their voices, and still others give up their valuables.  The collections are said to be very large, including the watches, jewelry, and, in some cases, articles of clothing of the members of the congregation.

HIGGINBOTHAM, Annie
The Brunswick News; Friday 3 December 1943; pg. 8 col. 5

NEGRESS SAID TO BE 126 YEARS OF AGE DIED WEDNESDAY

            Glynn county’s oldest resident, Annie Higginbotham, a negress, died Wednesday, and on her last birthday she said she was 126 years old, and while the definite date of her birth has not been established, further than information supplied by the woman, many of Glynn county’s oldest residents declare she is well over 100.
            According to Emma’s [sic] record, she was born at Fancy Bluff, in this county, in 1817, and was a slave of the well known Glynn county Pyles family.
            For ten years she had been receiving an old age pension through the local welfare office, and those who have conferred with her regarding the pension state that when she was first placed on this roll she gave her age at 116.  Each year since then, she has correctly kept up with her age, therefore welfare workers said if she did this all through her life her age as given must be correct.  Although she has been feeble for some time, her mind has been perfectly clear, and frequently Brunswick people visited her and listened to her tell about conditions of the long ago.  She said she remembered Brunswick when there was nothing here but a couple of houses, all the remainder of the city being a wooded area.  She said she was grown at the time Sherman marched through Georgia and headed this way, and with her family went temporarily to an adjoining county.  She could give dates of many outstanding occurrences in the city and county, and, as stated, while there is no absolute way in which the date of her birth can be established, those who know her believe she was just about the age she claimed.
            Annie died at her home here, 1928 Johnson street, having removed to the city some time ago from Fancy Bluff.  Funeral services will be held at the First Baptist church, colored, on Amherst street at 1:30 o’clock Sunday afternoon, and it will be attended by many of Annie’s white as well as colored friends.

[There was only one Annie Higginbotham throughout the census years, and that was Annie (Blue) Higginbotham, the wife of Nelson Higginbotham, married 15 November 1872, and unfortunately, she was not 126 years old at the time of her death.  Throughout the census years she was born anywhere between 1838 and 1852; so the oldest she could have been was 105 years.  In 1880 her birth year was 1852 and every census year after that she got increasingly older, 1900 it was 1846, in 1920 it was 1850, and in 1930 it was 1838.  Her death certificate records her as being 112 years old--ALH]

4 PERSONS DROWN WHEN BOAT SINKS—Mother, Two Sons, Companion Die; One Body Found.

            A mother, her two young sons, and a woman companion drowned late yesterday afternoon when their bateau capsized in Cedar Hammock Creek near Lathan Hammock.
            Drowned were Mrs. Mildred Thomas Hill, 32; her sons, Edward, 11, and Jimmie, 8; and Mrs. Helen Jean Robinson, 21, all residents of Arco.  Their husbands, Burford Brewer Hill, 35, and James E. Robinson, 26, were able to make their way to shore.
            Only one body had been recovered early this afternoon, but county police officers, the Coast Guard, Captain Hoke Smith, warden on Jekyll Island, and volunteers are continuing the search.  Efforts to recover the four bodies were hampered this morning by fresh northeasterly winds.
            The body of Mrs. Robinson was found at 2 p.m. and was carried to the Miller Funeral Home.
            The party left their Arco homes yesterday afternoon to gather some oysters.  The bateau was carried on a trailer and was launched on a small beach at Cedar Hammock, created when a dredge was pumping up the highway to Jekyll Island some time ago.  The group then proceeded up the creek for some distance; where they gathered the oysters.
            According to officers who investigated the tragedy, the party was returning to the point from which they started, and a rather strong northeast wind was prevailing, and it is believed that wind caused the boat to capsize.  In it besides the six persons, was a kicker and the oysters, a rather heavy load, it was stated, for a bateau.
            As the boat capsized, both Hill and Robinson made efforts to rescue their families, but they were unsuccessful, they told officers.
            After reaching shore, Robinson walked through the marsh to his auto and drove to the Fancy Bluff Grill, some several miles away, where he informed an employee of the tragedy.  County police were called and immediately went to the scene.
            Hill told officers he narrowly missed saving one of his sons.  He said he had hold of the boy and was endeavoring to reach the marsh with him, but in some way he lost his hold on the youth.  Hill was reported to have been exhausted and was carried to the City Hospital, where he remained overnight.  He was released this morning.
            Both men are employees of the Brunswick Pulp and Paper Company.  Hill has been an employee of the pulp mill since March, 1948, and works in the machine room at the plant.  Robinson has been an oiler at the plant since August, 1951, and has resided here for several years.
            Mrs. Hill formerly resided at Vidalia and has been a local resident since her marriage.  Mr. Hill is a native of Brunswick and he has resided in the city and county all of his life.  His family is well known here.
            Mrs. Robinson, it was stated, formerly resided in Alma and moved here with her husband.  They have one son, Bennie Jack, 2, who was with his grandmother yesterday afternoon.
            Mrs. Robinson’s body will be sent to Alma tonight by the Miller Funeral Home where funeral services will be held.  She was born in Chicago but lived in Alma before moving to Brunswick in 1951.
            Other survivors in addition to her husband is her mother, Mrs. Lessie Sweat, Brunswick.

PIONEER CITIZEN DIES IN CALIFORNIA—B. HIRSCH, FOR YEARS A RESIDENT OF BRUNSWICK, PASSED AWAY TUESDAY

            News was received in Brunswick today of the death in Los Angeles, Cal., of B. Hirsch, one of Brunswick’s pioneer citizens, who died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Julia May, in that city on Tuesday.  No details of his death were received here, and it is understood that the funeral was held in the California city.
            Mr. Hirsch resided in Brunswick practically all of his life, up to the time he removed to Los Angeles several years ago.  When he first came to Georgia he settled at Waynesville, where he engaged in the mercantile business for a number of years.  Later he removed to Brunswick and for years was a well known and popular Brunswick citizen.
            Mr. Hirsch only last month celebrated his eighty-fifth birthday, and at that time he was said to be enjoying unusually good health.  He was active up to the time he left Brunswick, and letters received from him by friends here occasionally stated that he was in fine health in Los Angeles, therefore the news of his death came as quite a surprise.
            Mr. Hirsch is survived by five children, Mose, and Jake Hirsch, Mrs. Julius May and Mrs. H.L. Harris, all of whom now reside in Los Angeles, and Henry Hirsch, of Dan?, Fla.

SERGT. W. H. HOLMES PASSES AWAY TODAY--END COMES TO ONE OF ONLY TWO SURVIVING MEMBERS OF ORIGINAL RIFLEMEN

            Sergeant William Henry Holmes, 83 years of age, one of the two surviving members of the original Brunswick Riflemen, the local military company which marched to the front from Brunswick in the sixties, passed away at his home, 1627 Bartow street at 10:30 o’clock this morning, after an illness which had extended over a period of several weeks.
            General Holmes, as he was familiarly known among his many Brunswick friends, was taken ill while attending the recent Confederate reunion in Tampa, Fla. He returned to the city from Tampa, was at once confined to his bed, and never recovered. His condition gradually grew worse, and for the past few days little hope has been held out for his recovery.
            Mr. Holmes marched away with the Riflemen early in the sixties as a member of the Twenty-Sixth Georgia Infantry, and he fought with that outfit throughout the civil war. Returning with it a few years later he was one of the several that survived the terrible conflict. One by one these veterans of the local company have passed away until today only one remains, J. J. Smith, who resides near the old cypress mills.
            Mr. Holmes had spent all of his life in Brunswick. For years he was connected with Hilton & Dodge Lumber company at their large saw mill on St. Simons. In more recent years he was connected with the sanitary department of the city.
            A gentleman of the old school, Mr. Holmes was probably known by more visitors than any other citizen of Brunswick. Every tourist automobile that rolled into Brunswick and was observed by him he stepped to the car and welcomed the visitors to Brunswick, answered all of their questions, and told them many interesting historical facts concerning this section.
            He was the oldest Kiwanian in Georgia, having been a member of the local club for three or four years, and at the last convention held in Augusta was honored as the oldest member of the organization.
            The deceased is survived by his widow, one son, George T. Holmes, of New York, who will arrive tomorrow, and one daughter, Mrs. R. L. Welsh, of Ft. Meyers, Fla., who has been in the city for several days. One sister, Miss Mamie Holmes, of this city, also survives.
            Definite funeral arrangements had not been completed today, but it will be held probably tomorrow. Six members of the local Kiwanis Club will act as honorary pall bearers, while the Brunswick Riflemen will attend and fire the usual salute.

WM. HENRY HOLMES PIONEER CITIZEN PASSES TO REST

            William Henry Holmes, for 83 years a citizen of Brunswick, died at his home on Bartow Street Monday morning after an illness extending over several weeks.
            “General” Holmes, as he was known to his thousands of friends, was one of the two surviving members of the Brunswick Riflemen of 1861-65 and he served throughout the civil war with that command.  He was born in Brunswick and has made him [sic] home here continuously ever since.
            He was a member of the Brunswick Kiwanis club and was ranked as the oldest Kiwanian in the state.  He was one of the most popular attendants at the last state convention in Augusta.
            Mr. Holmes’ characteristics can best be summed up by the nickname he bore throughout his life and by which he was widely known “Gentleman” Holmes.  The interment took place in Oak Grove cemetery with full military honors, the Brunswick Riflemen, his old command, attending in a body, also headquarters company of the 2nd Battalion 121st infantry.
            The funeral services were conducted at the family residence, Rev. Royal K. Tucker, of St. Marks Episcopal Church, conducting the services.

HOOD, Gen. Robert N.
Knoxville Daily Journal (Knoxville, TN); Tuesday 2 February 1892; pg. 2 cols. 1 & 2

DEATH OF GEN. R.N. HOOD

            Early yesterday morning a message fraught with sadness and sorrow flashed over the wires from Brunswick, Georgia.  Gen. ROBERT N. HOOD of this city, one of our most prominent lawyers and businessmen died at the above mentioned place at 7 o’clock a.m. yesterday.  Beyond the fact there are no further particulars to be given.  He had an attack of la grippe about a month ago and has not been well since, though there were few who looked upon his condition as serious.  He was a man of wonderful pluck and energy, and no ordinary illness could keep him away from his office and his desk.  He was one of the hardest working men in the city, and his untimely death may doubtless be traced to overwork.
            Last Tuesday he was prevailed upon to take a trip south, with a view to rest and recuperation.  He was accompanied by his devoted wife.  Last Saturday, his brother WM. HOOD, received a letter from Mrs. Hood, written from Brunswick, stating that there were discouraging features in her husband’s case.  Sunday evening Mr. HOOD received a telegram, and left on the first train.  Mention of this fact was made in THE JOURNAL yesterday.  Soon after that paragraph had been read in the morning, the sad news of his death reached the city.
            ROBERT N. HOOD was born at Madisonville, the county site of Monroe county, Tennessee, on the 23d day of August, 1844.  When he was but a child his parents removed to Maryville, in Blount county, where he made his home until in February, 1883.  He was educated there and served an apprenticeship at the printers’ trade, at which he worked for some time.
            When the late war came up he espoused the union cause.  In 1862 he crossed the mountains into Kentucky and enlisted in the Second Tennessee cavalry.  He was afterwards adjutant of the regiment, and subsequently was promoted to a captaincy.  He served with distinction, was a brave soldier and a daring, efficient officer, popular with his men and winning the confidence of his superior offices.
            He served to the close of the war, and then returned to Maryville.  He was for some time employed as a deputy in the office of Major D.A. CARPENTER, who was internal revenue assessor during the administration of President JOHNSON.  He read law and became a partner of the late W.D. McGHINLEY.  He was quick to see the points in his cases, and industrious and aggressive in prosecting [sic] them, so that he quickly took high rank in his profession.
            Since coming to Knoxville he has combined business with the practice of his profession.  For many years he has had the management of the Knoxville and Augusta road, and has managed it very successfully.  He was the founder and organizer of the Third national bank, and has been its president since its organization with the exception of a brief interval.  He was president of the Knoxville water company and managed its affairs with a fidelity to his trust tht commanded the admiration of even those who differed with him.
            When Hon. JAMES D. PORTER was elected governor of Tennessee, he appointed the subject of this sketch quartermaster general of the state with the rank of brigadier general.  He was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic and also of the Ohio Commandery of the Loyal Legion.  At the annual dinner given by the last named organization, in Cincinnati last May, he was one of the leading speakers, responding to the toast:  “The Loyalists of Tennessee.”  He died enjoying in a high degree, the respect and esteem of his companions.
            Gen. HOOD was a public spirited, patriotic citizen taking an active interest in whatever pertained to the welfare of the community where he resided, of his state and his country.  He was a true friend and when a friend needed his services, he gave them freely and without hesitating to calculate the cost.  He was aggressive and always ready to return blows for blows received.  He was firm and unyielding but when properly approached was as kind and gentle as a woman.  He had his faults and his enemies, but no man ever had stronger or truer friends.  He was well known, and the news of his death will bring sadness to many hearts and tears to many eyes.
            With him life’s fitful ferver [sic] is over.  Just as he was about to reach the zenith of his strong manhood, the inexorable messenger, who in time, will call for us all, has taken him to that bourne from whence no traveller [sic] returns.  His life has been a short but a busy one.  He will now find rest in the grave.  His memory will be cordially cherished by scores and hundreds of sincere friends, who have known him best, and who have admired the prominent traits of his manly character.
            He leaves a bereaved widow and four children, the oldest W.P. HOOD, superintendent of the Knoxville and Augusta road, to mourn his untimely end.  He was to them a devoted husband and a kind, affectionate father.

WM. C. HOOD PASSES AFTER SHORT ILLNESS
Popular Young Man Died Early This Morning at City Hospital

            William C. Hood, 24 years of age, prominent young Brunswick citizen, passed away at the City hospital at 1 o'clock this morning, following a short illness.  News of his death came as a shock to his host of Brunswick friends.
            Attacked early Monday morning with a hemorrhage of the lungs, young Mr. Hood was later in the day removed to the hospital, and attending physicians at once realized that his condition was serious.  Everything possible was done for him and after a consultation of physicians a blood transfusion was decided upon.  A half dozen or more friends of the popular young man volunteered for the operation and blood specimens were made preparatory to the transfusion.  It was then too late, however, as the end was near and a short time afterwards Mr. Hood passed away.  The physicians stated that it is very doubtful whether or not the transfusion would have been of any aid, but it was decided as a last resort in the efforts made to save the young man's life.
            Bill Hood, as he was familiarly known by his many friends, came to Brunswick about three years ago from Lake Wales, Fla., where he was connected with the Gillican-Chipley Company, and has since been in the naval stores department of the company here, having been associated with the company for the past eight years.  During the short time that he had been a resident of Brunswick he had made many close friends and was one of the most popular young men in the city.
            The deceased is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. T.J. Hood, of Covington, La., two brothers, Arthur and Schley Hood, of Amile, La., five sisters, Mrs. J.W. Burns, of Franklington, La., Mrs. Dr. Sebey, of Salt Lake City, Utah, Mrs. Jessie Helms, and Misses Edith and Jimmie Hood, Covington.  He was a nephew of W.A. Hood of this city.

            Funeral services will be held at the parlors of Mortician Edo Miller tonight at 7:30 o'clock, and the body will leave for the family home in Louisiana at 8:05 over the Coast Line.  The body will be escorted to the depot by a delegation representing the Brunswick lodge of Elks, of which the deceased was a popular member.

FUNERAL OF MRS. L.C. HOPKINS—Wife of Col. Hopkins, of New York, Who Has Been Visiting Georgia.

            Brunswick, Ga., December 6.—(Special.)  Colonel Lewis C. Hopkins, of New York, has returned to the city from a trip north, on which he was called to attend the bedside of his wife during her recent illness, which terminated fatally.  Colonel Hopkins was some weeks ago selected by large moneyed influences of his native state to come to Brunswick and look after their interests here and in other portions of southeast Georgia, and he had only been in the city of a few hours when a telegram told him of the serious illness of his wife, whom he had left well and happy only a short time previous.  During his short previous stay here he made many acquaintances, which added to the friends whom he had met before coming here, extended to him the most sincere expressions of sympathy.
            The following notice of Mrs. Hopkins’ death was published in The Daily Standard Union, of Brooklyn:
            “The funeral of the late Mrs. Maria C. Hopkins, of this city, will take place today (Sunday) in Cincinnati.  Mrs. Lewis Hopkins died Thursday at the residence of her son, Franklin W. Hopkins, in Alpine, N.J., after a two weeks’ illness of typhoid pneumonia, while preparing to accompany her husband to their new home in Brunswick, Ga.  She was a daughter of John and Julia Maria Whetstone, who were pioneer settlers of Cincinnati, her mother at one time having lived in the old stockade fort commanded by her grandfather, David Strong Moore.  Remotely her lineage touched that of her husband, she having been a lineal descendant of Stephen Hopkins, of the Mayflower, and John Hopkins, one of nati [sic] Mrs. Hopkins was prominent in the founders of Hartford, Conn.  In Cin- [sic] church activities, and in Brooklyn, where she was a member of the Plymouth church.  She and Colonel Hopkins celebrated the golden anniversary of their marriage last January.  Her husband and two sons, Allison R. and Franklin W. Hopkins, survive her.”

YARDLEY YOUTH KILLED YESTERDAY AT STEEL PLANT

            A 18-year-old son of a well known Yardley physician was instantly killed yesterday afternoon when he became caught in a conveyor while unloading iron ore at the Fairless Works of the U.S. Steel Corp. at Morrisville.
            He was Richard J. Horwell Jr., son of Dr. and Mrs. Richard J. Horwell, of 57 S. main st., who was working at the plant as a summer laborer during his vacation from college.
            A spokesman for the steel firm said the young man was working along an ore conveyor with a shovel, picking up spilled ore when his shovel apparently caught in the conveyor, pulling him into it.
            He was crushed and killed instantly according to Dr. William L. Goldfarb, of Bristol, deputy Bucks county coroner.
            Horwell graduated from George School where he was a member of the swimming and baseball teams.  He was a sophomore at Guilford College, N.C.

HOUSTON, James E.

            We are pained to learn of the sad death of our old friend, Judge James Houston, of Brunswick.  He was accidentally killed on Monday by the discharge of a pistol.  Judge Houston was one of Brunswick’s staunchest and best citizens and he will be greatly missed.  The editor of the Gazette deeply sympathizes with the family in their affliction.

Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 6 January 1883; pg. 7 cols. 1 & 2

DEATH OF JUDGE HOUSTON

            The city was thrown into a fever of excitement last Monday morning by the announcement that Judge James Houston was shot.  Upon investigation, it was found to be only too true.  The whole affair seems wrapped in mystery, as no possible theory as to how he came to his death can be formed that is satisfactory.  We can only give what facts we have gleaned, leaving each one to make his own theory.  Of but one thing are we sure, and that is that he came to his death by a bullet.  The circumstances are these:  After eating his breakfast, the Judge went back up stairs to his room, for what purpose is unknown.  Shortly after, a little grand-daughter, going to his room, found him seated in a chair before the fire-place, and seeing that something was wrong, rushed down stairs and gave the alarm.  Members of the family at once went to his room, and found him sitting in his chair as stated, his head thrown back, and the blood oozing from a wound in the head, on the right side, just above the ear, and his pistol, which had been placed on the mantel that morning, lying upon the hearth, the presumption being that the weapon from some cause fell from the mantel, and was discharged by the fall, inflicting a death-wound, as above stated.  He lingered until three o’clock the next morning, and expired.  This is all that is known as to how it happened.  One of the strangest facts connected with the whole thing is that, notwithstanding there were people in the room below the one in which Judge Houston was, and others on the same floor with him, none of them heard the report of the pistol.
            Thus has gone a man whose place cannot be filled.  Others, no doubt, can be found to perform the duties of Clerk and Treasurer of the city as well as he, but with him has died a fund of information touching the earlier history of our city that was nowhere else to be found.  In his death we have lost a personal friend.  The funeral took place from his late residence, and was attended by a large concourse of people, who followed him to his last resting-place.

SUMMONED HENCE

            It is our painful duty to chronicle three deaths in our city this week.
            First, Mr. Gus Scarlett, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dave Scarlett, of Spring Bluff, Camden county, a young man of happy promise.  He had just arrived at full manhood, and had a bright and promising future before him, but the summons came, and his young spirit left to return to God who gave it.  He was a member of the Methodist church, and at the time of his death, and for months past, has been in the employ of Mr. R.B. Reppard in this city.  His remains were taken to the old family cemetery, near Fancy Bluff for interment.  As we saw that fond mother, devoted father and loving brother and sister follow his remains on board the steamer that was to bear them hence, we could but rejoice in the thought that in the Great Beyond there shall be no more separation.
            Second, Mrs. Whitfield, the mother of our townsman, Col. Bolling Whitfield in the 55th year of her age.  Although a comparitive [sic] stranger in our midst, many sympathizing friends escorted her remains to the grave from the Baptist church of this city and lovingly laid her away to rest, till the grand trump shall sound to call her forth once more.
            Third, Mr. L.D. Hoyt, senior member of the hardware firm of L.D. Hoyt & Co., of this city.  Mr. Hoyt came to our city some twelve or fourteen years ago.  Full of life and energy, he hos [sic] ever worked to build up our city, and increase her material prosperity.  The influence of such men as he is always felt in every community.  But he is gone, and we shall see his happy face no more in our midst.  His funeral took place at his residence on Thursday afternoon last, Rev. A.C. Ward officiating.  He leaves a wife and several young children, besides a grown son, to mourn his loss.

HUGER, Francis Kinlock
The Brunswick News; Wednesday 8 December 1926; pg. 1 col. 4

MAJOR F.K. HUGER DIES SUDDENLY AFTER A BAD HEART ATTACK—Well Known Citizen Passes Away Last Night—Was Widely Known in South

            Maj. F.K. Huger, well known and popular citizen, died suddenly at his home here early last night suffering with a severe attack of the heart.  He had been indisposed during the early afternoon, but his condition was not considered serious and the announcement of his death at 7:30 o’clock came in the nature of a shock to his many friends.
            Major Huger was born near Charleston, S.C., eighty-two years ago, having celebrated his eighty-second birthday last Sunday.  He spent much of his early life in that city and in Savannah.  During the war between the states, he served with distinction in the Confederate army, where he won his majorship and was regarded as a gallant soldier and officer.
            Many years ago Major Huger was married to Mrs. William Wright, member of a well known Georgia family, being a sister of the late Mrs. W.M. Nightingale, of this city.
            Practically all of Major Huger’s business life was spent in railroading.  For twenty years he was general superintendent of the Southern Railway with headquarters at Knoxville, Tenn., and for many years he was superintendent of the Seaboard Air Line, making his offices at Portsmouth, Va.
            For the past ten or fifteen years, Major Huger has made his residence in Brunswick, spending a portion of the time in North Carolina, but always returning here for the winter.
            The deceased is survived by three sisters, Mrs. John D. Elliott, Mrs. O.T. Prochei, and Miss Marie Huger, all of them residing in South Carolina.  Because of the fact that these sisters have been communicated with, and have not yet been heard from, the hour of the funeral has not yet been fixed, but the interment will take place in this city.
            Maj. Huger was widely known all over the south and locally was very popular among a wide circle of friends.  He belonged to that old school of Southern gentlemen, now rapidly passing away and his sudden death has caused genuine sorrow in the city.

YOUTH FATALLY WOUNDED WHEN GUN DISCHARGES—Death Determined Accidental Upon Coroner’s Probe.

            Wayne Hunter, 15, was fatally wounded yesterday by a gunshot blast which a coroner’s jury ruled was accidentally fired by a friend, Wayne Green, also 15.
            Hunter, son of Mrs. Lucille Glisson, 51 Glynnvilla, was a student at Glynn Academy. The accident occurred at 4 p.m. and he was declared dead upon arrival at the Brunswick hospital.
            The shooting occurred at the home of Green’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.O. Green, 2410 Stadium Street. The weapon was a 20 gauge bolt action shotgun, belonging to Mr. Green which was being examined by the boys.
            An inquest last night determined the death was accidental. City police said the shot pierced young Hunter’s left arm, two-and-one half inches down from the shoulder, and lodged in the lung.
            The Green youth described the events to the police: “Wayne Hunter and I left school together about 3:45 and went to my house.” He said he was going to call W.E. Womack, director of the Boys’ Club, “and tell him I was going to be late.”
            Green added he called the information operator to make sure of the correct number. “I don’t know whether I got the number or not.”
            He told officers the Hunter boy was looking at the gun and pictures on the mantle. “I said ‘Wayne (Hunter), do you want to see my daddy’s gun’?”
            Green told of taking the gun from the mantle and checking it, when a shell dropped from the weapon. “I thought it was the only shell. I didn’t figure it was loaded to begin with.” The two youths stood looking at the shell.
            “I pushed the bolt back, still looking at the shell,” Green declared. “I reckon when I pushed the bolt, I pulled the trigger—I don’t know, I’m not sure.”
            He then stated: “I realized the gun had gone off and Wayne Hunter fell down beside me. I tried to get the operator to get me the hospital but she got ‘all mixed up’.”
            He told police he ran out the door and called a next-door neighbor for help.
            Funeral services for the Hunter youth will be held in the chapel of Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home tomorrow at 4 p.m., with the Revs. W.C. Bryant and C.W. Clayton, officiating.
            Burial will follow in Palmetto Cemetery. Pallbearers will be selected from the membership of the Boys’ Club, of which he was a member.
            Wayne was a ninth grade student. He was a member of the Baptist Church in Palatka, Fla. He was born in Jacksonville.
            Survivors are his mother; three brothers, Donald Corbitt and Bruce Gerces, Brunswick, and Ray Corbitt, USN, stationed in Australia; his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. W.L. Downs, Brunswick. He had resided in Brunswick for the past year.

BULLET WOUND FATAL TO JOHN D HUTTO—Police Investigating Tragedy Believe It To Be A Case of Suicide

            John D. Hutto, 57, was found at his home 2623 Union street, Saturday night, with a bullet through his heart, and officials who investigated the tragedy said there was every indication that the man had taken his own life.
            While he left no notes, it was stated, he had recently intimated to friends, officers were told, that he contemplated taking his life.
            Mr. Hutto had gone into the bathroom, it was stated, and when the report of a revolver was heard members went into the room, and found him dead, a pistol lying nearby.  The bullet entered the chest and penetrated the heart.
            Coroner J.D. Baldwin has not held an inquest, and while it is not known what his investigation has revealed, all officers who have been investigating state there appears but little doubt that the man ended his life.
            Mr. Hutto was born in Baxley, but he had made his home in Brunswick for 24 years.  For a time he was employed by the J.A. Jones Construction Co., but recently was engaged in carpenter work.  Ill health, it was stated, caused him to retire about a year ago.
            Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Angie Hutto, three sons, Walton D. and Fred L. Hutto of Brunswick, and Homer Hutto, U.S. Army, stationed in Texas; one daughter, Mrs. Annie Mae Wilson, Brunswick; two brothers, W.I. and Joe Hutto of Baxley, and two sisters, Mrs. Minnie Davis and Mrs. Aliff Williams, of Florida.
            Funeral services will be held at the home at 8 o’clock Tuesday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. C.H. Moss, and burial will be in Palmetto cemetery.  The following will serve as pall bearers:  Raymond Crews, Ellis Knight, Artis Knight, F.A. Brewer, Grady Sweat and J.M. Wren.  Arrangements are in charge of Mortician Edo Miller.
