Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 01 May 1935 Frankewing “Dr. Love”

Dock Cameron departed this life April 25, 1935, age 85 years, and 11 days. He had requested us on two different occasions to write him up when he died. I told him I would if I did not die first. He was an honest man and lived a tranquil life, was a member of the Methodist Church . Also a charter member of the bachelors colony organized 1911. He and his brother Al Cameron lived near us for many years. After the death of Al, he went to live with the Lackeys at Bunker Hill. George Lackey married his niece, Miss Edna Massingil, who he helped to raise. Her mother who was a widow, kept house for them at that time, but lived with her daughter after marriage to George Lackey. The boys helped each other and Dock was a fine cook and farmer. I never knew a man more perfect in word and deed than Dock Cameron. Rev. Angel of Pisgah conducted services at Mt. Zion Tuesday. and now his body lies in a beautiful casket in the cemetery near by the church where two of his brothers are buried. And his soul to God who gave it. Had had a long fight of affliction for eighteen months, but had a nurse with good attention. Surviving him are his niece Mrs. Massingil and great-niece, Mrs. George Lackey and her two sons, Earl and Grady, also one niece at McBurg, Mrs. Shirley Prosser. We hope to meet him again where there is no pain or death. The greatest tragedy of life is to get old and afflicted.

This community was sadly shocked when the report came out that the Death Angel claimed D. G. Erwin for its victim. Mr. Erwin was born March 4th, 1847, died April 20th, 1907. He had been suffering with a stomach trouble for several years. He became confined to his bed April 12th, and gradually grew worse. They did everything that loving hands could do to keep him with them but our Heavenly Father knew best and called him from this sinful earth to a world above....His remains were carried to Mt. Zion for interment followed by his loved ones and a host of relativesand friends. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. William Erwin, of Boons Hill.

Mrs. Harwel was born and reared in Giles County, joined the church at Mt. Zion early in life, was a devout member although in late years she was so weak she couldn't attend like she wanted too, but she loved her church, its members, her pastor and was loyal to God till the last. She was a loving mother who reared her children only as only a Christian mother can. She was a woman of great strength of character, her leading traits being firmness devotion to her family and church, good business judgement was a great help to the bereaved husband. Loyalty and good to her friends and neighbors was the way she lived. She died at the age of 58 years. She was married many years ago and the union was blessed by seven children, five girls and two boys. Our hearts is in sympathy with these dear children. We know there is none can take the place of mother, how you miss that dear old face, how dear she does seem to you but let this be a consolation to you, mother has suffered her last pain, she has only gone on before and is waiting at the beautiful gate for you and me. how sweet will be the words spoken by mother if you all gain heaven to hear her say, they have all come. After funeral services by Rev. Hensley, her pastor, she was laid to rest in Mt. Zion Cemetery where sweet throated birds will sing for years to come, but she will sleep on with nothing to disturb her resting place, but on the morning of resurrection her restless little body will rise clad in garments of white in beautiful robes that we all shall wear. Dear mother in Israel farewell.

Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 01 Jan 1920

Wilkes Harwell who lived in the Bradshaw neighborhood near Frankewing, died Dec. 21, of pneumonia at the advanced age of73 years. The deceased was a half-brother of Dr. J. R. Harwell, Grand Secretary of Odd Fellows, Nashville, and was the father of Rev. W. L. Harwell, pastor of the Methodist Church at Prospect and Bethel. Wilkes Harwell was a gallant Confederate soldier during the Civil War, and served with distinction in Forrest's Cavalry.

Memorial:

William Wilkes Harwell was born April 26, 1846, at Prospect, Giles County, Tenn., and died December 21, 1919, at his home in the Bradshaw neighborhood, near Frankewing, in the same county. He was the son of the Rev. William Mack Harwell and Mrs. Eliza Nash Harwell. He was my half brother and one I loved dearly. He was also the father of the Rev. Wyatt L. Harwell, of the Tennessee Conference, now stationed at Prospect and Bethel, in the same county. Reared by pious parents in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, he was singularly free from the vices incident to human life. Scrupulously honest, he had the respect and confidence of all who knew him. He had no bad habits, but his life was a model of good morals and correct living. Quiet and unobtrusive in his disposition, he was a man of few words. He was also a man of deep humility and often expressed himself as being unworthy to called a child a of God.When about twenty years of age, he joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and remained a consistent and faithful member to the day of his death.He was the father of seven children, five daughters and two sons. One of his daughters died about a year ago. The rest of his children are all devoted members of the Methodist Church and are following in the footsteps of their beloved father. During the Civil War he joined the Confederate army and was attached to the cavalry branch of the service. He was a true and faithful soldier and remained in the service until the end of the war. He underwent manyhardships and privations in the armythat undermined his health to some extent for the balance of his life. As his end drew near he expressed his readiness and willingness to go and was even anxious to depart if it should be God's will. His last moments were calm and peaceful, and he passed away like one going to sleep and without a struggle. His remains were taken to Mt. Zion Church, where he had held membership, and in the presence of a large audience of sympathizing neighbors and friends, the Rev. W. M. Cook, his pastor, held funeral services and spoke beautifully of his life and character. He was then laid to rest in the Mt. Zion Cemetery by the side of his beloved wife, who died several years ago, there to rest until the resurrection morn. May his sleep be sweet. J. R. Harwell

Columbia, Tenn. June 13—Walter M. (Dick) Harwell, 25, of Frankewing, Giles County, was killed this morning when he fell from a truck which was hauling poles for the telephone company. Wheels of either the truck or the trailer on which poles were being hauled went over his head. The resultant jar caused the driver, Vincent Williams of Pulaski, to stop at once, he said, but Harwell was dead when reached. The men were employed by William Taylor, contractor, and were returning from Southport where they had taken a load of poles in the telephone company’s countywide expansion program. Harwell, unmarried, had been employed by the TVA in construction work in the Cleveland area until about a month ago. Member of a well known Giles County family, he was born at Frankewing, son of the late Otey Harwell and Mrs. Annie McLin Harwell. Besides his mother he is survived by his brothers, Malcolm and Raymond Harwell of Frankewing, and his sisters, Mrs. Mary Lou Clark of Madison, Mrs. Catherine Harwell and Mrs. Annie Harris of Frankewing, and Mrs. Elise Creasy of Carter’s Creek.

Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 13 Oct 1923

When we look in the kingdom of childhood and see the children at play with their toys, we see ten thousand charms cluster about them that we love. But the Savior loves them too, for He was child himself onetime. And when he took the children in his arms, and blessed them as a class of people that proved His blessing was needful to qualify them for the Kingdom of Heaven. Again we look beyond the Kingdom of childhood to the kingdom of the adult and see thousands of men and women wrecked by sin on the sea of life. Then we decide it is better for the children to depart this life before they reach the adult kingdom and possibly become wrecks on the sea of life and tossed about by the storms of adversity and die at last in their sin. True we do not want to give them up, because we love them. But the Saviour has prepared a beautiful city for them to live and play in with the streets all paved with gold. Therefore when we consider these facts we should be willing to give them up and say thy will be done and thank God that it is done. The subject of this sketch was the thirteen year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Luther Holt who became ill from appendicitis and on Monday Oct. 1, 1923, her mother and aunt, Mrs. Claude Dale, with Dr. W. P. Merrell, carried her to Nashville for an operation, but when they arrived at the hospital it was too late, because the virus or poison had permeated all of the avenues of life and by 2:30 that night the toxin had overcome the vital and the soul or inner man fled from all the pains and dying groans of mortality to immortality. The body arrived at Frankewing on the 10 o'clock train Tuesday and was conveyed to the home. Services were held in the afternoon at the church where Rev. O. P. Gentry spoke words of comfort for the bereaved who have the sympathy of all their friends. The parents and four sisters are left to mourn for Nellie, Misses Daisy May, Rosabell and Virginia and Mrs. Fullerton. All of the school girls participated in the burial of their fallen comrade were dressed in white emblematic of purity. This was not only a beautiful service, but was veryimpressive. Pall bearers were Misses Pattie and Hallie Story, Catherine Harwell, Eunice Follis, Sara Holley and Thelma Marks. Flower girls were, Misses Louise Bruce, Elise Cordie, Willard Smith and Evelyn Story. In life Nellie Holt was like a beautiful little flower and as bright as the noonday sun. But today the earthly house in which she lived, rests in beautiful Mt. Zion Cemetery near the church and school where she was identified with both. Her life and death is a strong sermon for us all to consider.

Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 26 Mar 1914 Bradshaw and McBurg “Dr. Love”

On March 17th, 1914, Esq. Houston surrendered all claims on mortality. He was born at Lewisburg, Marshall County, December 8, 1836, which makes him a little over seventy seven years old at the time of his death. He was in the Civil War, after which he came to Pulaski, and was in the revenue department four years. In 1866, he was married to Miss Sarah Abernathy, and to this union ten children were born, eight daughters and two sons, all of whom survive. But Miss Colle is the only single child at home. After leaving Pulaski, he located at Bradshaw and was elected magistrate in 1882, and served in that capacity twenty-four years. This proves that he was very popular with the people. He became a good judge of law, and his counsel was sought. He was a strongman physically, mentallyand his personalitycommanded respect. He professed faith in Christ about thirty years ago, and has been a faithful soldier of the Cross as a member of the Baptist Church at Center Point. On Tuesday he was at Bradshaw store and took dinner with his son, Bud Houston and wife and walked home in the afternoon, took a seat by the fire and told his wife that he felt better. But in a few minutes Mrs. Houston, who was seated near by, heard him make a noise, she then spoke to him, but he made no answer. She called her daughter, but all was over, the Lamp of Life had gone out, leaving his wife and daughter alone in their solitude. A large crowd attended the funeral, which was conducted by Rev. J. H. Holmes and Maut Harwell at Zion. Much sympathy is extended to the bereaved family, and may the hand of God's providence guide them to the end.

Mr. McKnight departed this life at his home in Bradshaw on Thursday night, May 2, 1918, after a brief illness with measles and pneumonia, and was buried Friday afternoon at Mt. Zion, where services were held by Rev. W. M. Cook. There was a very large crowd present to pay their last tribute to one of their native born citizens, whose life had been a life of honest toll in the shop and on the farm. And there was never a time when his service was needed worse than now. But he has laid down the hammer and the plow and has bound rest from all his labors. He was fifty-one years old, and leaves a wife and five children, also four brothers who have great sympathy in their loss. All his children have the measles.

Mrs. Tomlinson died at her home in McBurg Saturday morning at 4 o'clock from the effects of an operation that she had undergone on Monday previously March 3, 1917, aged 44 years and 8 months. She had been in delicate health for many years and had spent some time in Nashville last fall for treatment and was greatly improved. But decided at last to have an operation that resulted in her death. Services were held from the Methodist Church Sunday at McBurg by her pastor, Rev. G. F. Dickson after which she was buried at Mount Zion. She was one of the best women that we ever knew. She was cheerful and her home was always open to her friends and her hospitality was unbounded. She had been a faithful member of the Methodist Church since her girlhood days. She was twice married, first to George Cameron, with whom she lived for about 20 years and was married again to Ben Tomlinson about 4 years ago. Besides her husband she leaves one daughter, Miss Letta Cameron, aged 13, also three brothers, Erskin Caldwell in Texas, Tom and Tully Caldwell in McBurg. May God bless all of those who mourn the death of loved ones and help them through the dark hours of life.
