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.

He graded our roads in Yell County, built houses in this area, roamed the hills and fished the streams around Havana for 74 years. He also enjoyed farming and gardening. The Lord went to his house on March 19, 1999 and called him to come up higher to be with Him. He was the son of Charles and Amy Adair Carpenter. He sailed the turbulent seas with the U. S. Navy during WWII to help save our Country. He came home from California and went to see his sister, Inez, and there he met Mary Lee Nolan. It was her 16th birthday. That was the beginning of a short courtship and before long they were married. They celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary last Friday, March 12th. To this union was born Linda, Charles, Polly and Robin.

He was a friendly, out-going, "happy-go-lucky" kind of guy. He was a good husband, a wonderful dad and a great "Papaw" He was known for his honesty and was al friend to anyone who needed a friend. When ill health took over his life and he couldnt get out much anymore, he would enjoy a friendly game of dominos and going to the coffee shop and catching up on the news. He gave his heart to the Lord and was baptized years ago under the teaching of Reverend E. O. Tackett who showed him the One who hung on "The Old Rugged Cross" and was saved by His "Amazing Grace" And in recent years he rededicated his life and had peace and reassurance that all was well with his soul and he was faithful to attend the House of the Lord when health permitted.
