Harry E., OBITUARY
article is written as the last tribute of respect to Harry E. Hodges.
The subject of this sketch was born in Orange county, Ind., Jan. 15th,
1871, and died at the home of his brother, in Bedford, Jan. 6, 1900,
aged 28 yrs., 11 mo. and 21 days.
circumstances which resulted in his death are about as follows: On the
14th of December (last), while returning to Bedford on horse-back
leading a cow for the beef shop, the animal took fright at the north
end of the bridge on the Limestone road, pulling away from him. The
horse that he was riding, had a sore on his back, and the effort which
Mr. Hodges made to hold the animal caused the saddle to pinch the sore.
The horse began bucking, throwing Harry. He fell to one side of the
road, lighting on a rough stone, causing fatal injuries. This happened
about noon, and near the old Farmer house. Just at that time Dr. Short
came down the hill, going to Limestone. He took charge of the injured
man, assisted by Mr. Frank Smith, who came up just at that time.
Farmer house is occupied by a family by the name of Gowens, who did
what they could to help the suffering man, who was taken into their
house. Dr. Short returned from Limestone a few hours later, finding him
in a dying condition. The poor fellow was as cold as ice, but conscious.
injuries were internal and from their nature, it was supposed that he
would not rally,The whole night was spent to trying to get reaction.
was an heroic effort to save life. On the next day he was taken to the
home of his brother, in Bedford. Drs. Freeland and Duncan were also
summoned, who did all they could for him.
conflict between life and death finally ended after a struggle of 21
days, and Harry fell into that sleep from which no friend on earth
could awaken him. He bore his suffering without a word of complaint. He
retained his reason till within a few hours of his death. It was
thought by many that he stood a chance of getting well but it was a
at Leatherwood in Aug., 1893, at the age of 22. This was a wise choice,
choosing between life and death, he took life, building on the rock
14, 1894, Miss Jennie Teague became his wife. To them was born one
child, a son, little Paul, who survives.
Harry was a bright young man of industrious habits, was loved by all
who knew him. He was the first one of the family to cross the Dark
River. Father, mother, four brothers and five sisters are left to
mourn, but Heaven is dearer to you now as one of your number is over
It will not
be long until
some other one of you will join him in that "sweet by and by". Harry
will be missed every where, but especially in the family circle, but
enough has been said I trust.
remember to be good and kind to all, following in the footsteps of
Jesus. Let us be ready when he comes.
