Apr 4, 1918 - W. H. Hall Dead
W. H. Hall aged about 80 years, a pioneer citizen of Izard County died
at his home at Sage Tuesday night of pneumonia after a very brief illness.
He leaves a wife and one son W. E. Hall.
"Uncle Harrison," as he was commonly called, came to Arkansas from
Mississippi soon after the Civil War and has resided near Sage practically
all the time ever since.
He was a confederate Soldier of the truest type, having seen service in
some of the hottest contested battles of the war. He was with Joseph E.
Johnson on his retreat from Dalton to Atlanta and with Hood on his march
back from Atlanta through Tennessee; was with Pat Cleburne in his famous
charge at Franklin, Tenn., and with Hood when his army was crushed by Thomas
He was a typical Southerner, and was of the type of man who had but one
question to ask on any proposition and that was "Which side is right?" and
having made up his mind he no longer hesitated which side to take. He was
firm in his convictions, religious, political and otherwise and conceded
every other man the same privilege. He was a good neighbor, a true friend
and an unswerving patriot.
Burial took place at Bethlehem cemetery, near Sage, the funeral being
conducted by Rev. J. W. Black, pastor of the M. E. Church, South of which Mr
Hall had been a member for many years.
