Batson, Calvin A.

Though not unexpected, announcement of the death of Mr. Calvin A. Batson, aged 50 years, which occurred at his home on North Second Street at 3:45 o'clock Sunday afternoon, June 25th, 1939, brought sadness and regret to every home in the city. Due to a heart ailment, Mr. Batson had not been in robust health for a year, or more, but only during the past ten days had his condition been regarded as critical.

Awaiting the arrival of his son, Calvin ("Sonny") Batson, Jr., who was enroute home from Venezuela by air at the time of his father's death, the funeral was not held until Tuesday evening at 5 o'clock. The service was conducted at the family home by Rev. Ethan Dodgen, pastor of the Methodist Church, of which deceased was a member, assisted by Rev. John E. Parse, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church. A large concourse of sorrowing friends from all sections of the County was present, to pay a last tribute of respect and devotion, and so extensive was the wealth of floral tribute that an extra conveyance was required to carry it to the cemetery. Calvin Batson, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Batson, was born in Dardanelle, where he spent his entire life. Modest and unassuming, he was yet a man of strong character, fair and generous in his dealings with his fellows, sympathetic and kindly and considerate, he won and held the warm friendship and respect of all with whom he came in contact. Associated with his brother, Reese Batson, in the firm of Batson Bros., highway contractors, he played no small part in the building of Arkansas' splendid system of highways. He was also extensively engaged in farming. Mr.

Batson is survived by his wife, the former Miss Mollie Stirman; one daughter, Mrs. Richard Linebarger, of Camden; one son, Calvin Batson, Jr.; a sister, Mrs. R. L. Harkey, of this city; and two brothers, Reese, of Dardanelle, and Lester, of Conway. The Post-Dispatch joins the many friends of the family in extending condolence in their bereavement.

Batson, Samuel S. "Sam"

Mr. S. S. Batson, aged 72 years, died at his home on North Front Street at 7:15 a. m. Monday, August 20, 1934. News of the passing of this popular and respected citizen was a distinct shock to his friends throughout Yell County, for while he had not been in robust health for some time, it was only within the past two or three weeks that he had been confined to his home, and few knew that his condition was critical.

The funeral was held at the family home at 5 o'clock Tuesday evening, the beautiful and touching sermon being preached by Rev. Sam B. Wiggins, of Jonesboro, former pastor of deceased, assisted by Rev. Chas. F. Wilkins, Pastor of the local Baptist Church. The handsome casket bearing the earthly remains of one who for more than three-score years had lived and labored honorably and uprightly among us was borne from the home to the waiting funeral car by Messrs. Joe D. Gault, Aubrey Love, Dalton Stubbs, Robert Campbell, Garrett Jones and Robert Pierce. And as grandchildren of deceased, Misses Martha Jean Batson, Selma Elizabeth Harkey, Corinne Batson and Annette Batson, and Calvin Batson, Jr., and R. L. Harkey, Jr., followed with a wealth of flowers, all heads were bowed. Interment was in Brearley Cemetery. Samuel S. Batson was born October 26th, 1862, in Waverly, Tenn. He came to Dardanelle at the age of eight years, since which time he had continued to make this city his home. For more than 40 years he had been engaged in buying cotton, and perhaps no citizen of the County was so widely known among the business men and farmers. He was also extensively engaged in farming and his expert knowledge and close personal attention made him unusually successful in this avocation. Honest and upright in all of his dealings with his fellows, kindly and genial by nature, Mr. Batson won and held the friendship of all with whom he came in contact and his death has brought sorrow and regret to most of the homes of Yell County. Besides his widow, Mr.

Batson is survived by one daughter, Mrs. R. L. Harkey, and three sons, Messrs. Calvin, Reese and Lester Batson, all of this city; also by six grandchildren. The Post-Dispatch joins the many friends of the family in extending deepest sympathy in their great bereavement.
