Campbell, W. A.

NATIVE OF DARDANELLE .. DIES IN LITTLE ROCK -- W. A. Campbell of Gravelly died in a Little Rock hospital, February 17. Funeral services will be Friday afternoon at 2:00, at the Baptist church, by Rev. Sidney Oxendine, and burial in the Brearley cemetery, directed by Cornwell Funeral service.

Following are extracts from his life history, that was written by him March 18, 1952: "William A. Campbell, of Yell countya native of the county. I happened to be born in Yell county, six miles west of Dardanelle. My family located near the Cotton family, soon after their moving here from East Tennessee, in the year 1860; the civil war was being talked all over the eastern U.S., but this talk was rather quiet. I was born Nov. 3, 1869. "Our family moved to Gravelly, and for some time we did not have very good schools, but did later, near my first year and I began to learn more each day. Few could keep up with me in my class. I would pick out older men to talk to and did my best to catch all they would say, if advice was good. "March 15, 1892 I took a commercial course in Little Rock, and Aug. 6, 1892 I passed the examination 100 percent. "The first bank position I got was August 17, 1892, in a new bank in Dardanelle, across the street from where the Bank of Dardanelle now is, at the present D & R office. "I later worked for the "Old American National Bank" of Fort Smith, and later worked for the Merchants National bank there. I got a job at Poteau, Indian Territory. "A few people had settled in this territory, so we helped citizens to build dwellings and settle there. I began to talk "Building and Loan Association," and talked for an $11,000 capital. A number of people of Arkansas came there and took an interest in the association. We made good and the town grew. "From the time I went into the bank in Dardanelle, I did not miss a month's salary in 52 years and eight months."

Early in life Mr. Campbell's family moved to Gravelly, where he spent about 17 years, and after working for the bank here and two at Fort Smith, and the one at Poteau, he retired in 1944. Since retiring he has made his home with his sister, Mrs. Bob Caviness, at Gravelly, were he continued to live until his death.

Mr. Campbell is survived by two brothers, John A. Campbell, of Mesa, Ariz., and Rufus E. Campbell, of Fort Worth, Texas; two sisters, Mrs. Minnie Gardner, of Dardanelle, and Mrs. Bob Caviness. He was married in 1900 to Grace Adams, at Dardanelle, who died July 30, 1929. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews, one of his nieces is Mrs. Fred C. Burnett, and a host of friends both in Oklahoma and Arkansas. (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Submitted by: Mary Fowler Leek; Newspaper: Dardanelle Post-Dispatch, 2-19-1953)

Capshaw, Meekie (Mrs.)

Mrs. Meekie Capshaw, aged 59 years, died suddenly at the home of her sister, Mrs. R. C. Cope, in McAlester, Okla., last Sunday morning.

The remains were brought to this city Monday, and following a very beautiful funeral service at the First Methodist Church, conducted by the Pastor, Rev. Sam B. Wiggins, they were conveyed to Brearley Cemetery and in the presence of a large gathering of sorrowing relatives and friends were tenderly consigned to their last resting place. Mrs. Capshaw, as Mrs. B. H. Burnett, was for many years a resident of Chickalah. She was a woman of rare Christian character, generous, kindly, charitable, and it has been said of her that she was a mother to the entire community. Especially was she loved by the young people, who went to her for advice, instruction and comfort, and never did they go in vain. In caring for the sick, the needy and the distressed, she was a living example of the Master's divine injunction, and no woman ever did more, or more cheerfully, to relieve suffering and better the condition of her fellows than she. That she was universally loved was but natural, and now that she has been called from the activities of her noble life it is likewise natural that she be universally mourned. Mrs. Capshaw from girlhood had been a zealous, faithful member of the Methodist Church, active in all the duties and responsibilities and ever ready to give of her time and means in its support. By nature cheerful and happy, ever seeing the cloud's silver lining, she attracted (last line of clipping cut off) (WWW.YellCountyObits.org,Post-Dispatch Newspaper, Dardanelle, Arkansas, Obituary was published on May 19, 1927 - Obituary courtesy of Dardanelle Public Library Archives, Arkansas River Valley Regional Library System, Dardanelle, Arkansas)

Carmichael, Bruce

Bruce Carmichael - Dead Man Found Near Waveland-The body of an unidentified man, about 50 years of age, was found near the railroad tracks three fourths of a mile west of Waveland yesterday morning around 7 a. m. The body was badly mangled, with both legs and one arm cut off.

The man had no billfold or identification papers and no teeth. He had apparently been dressed in an Arrow shirt and good dress pants. A laundry label on one pocket read M. Duncan. Another label on his underwear read CP19 or CR18. He had brown eyes and dark hair and was apparently of average height and build. A coroner's jury returned a verdict of accidental death caused by a train. Sheriff Earl Ladd, who has been investigating the accident, reported this morning that evidence indicated the man was a hobo who had been riding a west bound freight train. A brakeman on train 193, which arrives in Booneville at 2:25 a. m. told the sheriff there was one hobo on his train and described the man whose body was found fairly close. A brakeman on the east bound freight train which passed train 193 at Belleville said he saw a man standing on a flatcar. The engineer of the Rocket which was 23 minutes behind train 193, told Sheriff Ladd he saw something at the side of the tracks about where the body was found, but had not recognized it as a man. The man apparently fell from the flat car and was run over and dragged to his death. Bulletin- This man was identified this afternoon by his fingerprints as Bruce Carmichael of North Little Rock, according to State Policeman D. N. Keathley.
