Barton, H. D.

72- Year Old Man Found After 3 Days In Woods; Dies In Hospital - A 72- year old Texas man, who was found about 3 p. m. Sunday on Mt. Magazine after being lost for three days, died four hours later in a Paris hospital.

The lost man, H. D. Barton, had been missing from the farm home of his daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. H. H. McPherson of near Waveland. Sheriff Earl E. Ladd reported that he was found lying head down in a ravine and was bruised and skinned all over like he had been crawling. His pants and shoes were found about eight feet up the hill from where he was found. He was about 50 feet from a road and about a mile and a half north of the McPherson home. He had an injured left hip and used a crutch to aid his walking. The two men who found him, J. B. Self and Gene Wiseman, said they heard him groaning and located him in the woods. He was mumbling something which they understood to be "water" Sheriff Ladd had been directing a search for three days and had been assisted one day by men from Camp Chaffee and Saturday by Guardsmen from Dardanelle and Booneville.

The McPherson family reported they discovered Barton missing about 1 p. m. last Thursday after they finished their noon meal and went onto the porch where he had been sitting. The family reported he suffered lapses of memory and had started to walk off from the house on several occasions but they had always stopped him before he got far. Burial will be in Texas.
