Death of D. S. Hunt

D. S. Hunt, aged 65 years, died at the home of his daughter near Chigley last Friday morning, acute indigestion being given as the cause of death.

Mr. Hunt was one of the old settlers here, having lived in this community about 17 years and held the respect and esteem of all who knew him.

He was born in Alabama Feb. 25, 1854.

He married Miss Berranda Rikard and they moved to Oklahoma. There he lived the balance of his life.

He leaves a wife and five children, viz: Mrs. Ida Digby, Lee Carroll and Oscar Hunt of Gooseneck community; Russell Hunt of Davis, and Mrs. Dora Wells of Chigley. Two brothers, T. J. Hunt of Davis and John Hunt west of town, also survive him.

He was an uncle of Ed Hunt who lies buried in France.

Mr. Hunt had not bee in good health for some time. He often worked when he should have been in bed. He came in from work Wednesday night and had an attack of acute indigestion from which he died.

The funeral was held at Oak Ridge cemetery Saturday afternoon, Rev. J. J. Franklin conducting the service. A hard rain fell while the service was going on. It is a coincidence that his 2-year old grandson, Marvin Leonard, son of Oscar Hunt, died of membranous croup about four months ago and had to be buried in the rain.

Almarinda "Berranda" "Marinda" [Rickard] Hunt
1852 ~ December 4, 1919


Mrs. D. S. Hunt departed this life Dec. 4, at 11:30 o'clock a.m. at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Will Digby.

She was born in Alabama, came to this country several years ago.

Her husband preceded her to the grave 6 months ago. She obeyed the gospel at the age of 18 years; lived a faithful christian life; was loved by all who knew her.

She leaves to mourn her loss five children; Mrs. Will Digby, Mrs. Barney Wells, Carroll Hunt, Oscar Hunt, Russell Hunt, and two brothers, J. C. Rickard of Davis and T. M. Rickard of Florence, Ala.

A precious one from us is gone,
A voice we loved is still,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled,
God in his wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love had given,
And though the body slumber here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.

Her niece, Rilla Buckley.
