The pen is seldom called into use to chronicle a death more shocking and
appalling in it character than that which occurred Wednesday May 25th, 1921,
about the middle of the afternoon, near our little village. Never did news
travel so fast over the community and county as did the brief and melancholy
tiding that told in a flash the awfulness and sad
ending of Goebel Hedges, coming
to his death by the accidental discard of a shotgun while ’Äúcrow hunting.’Äù
The message spread like wildfire over the entire neighborhood as it by magic,
neighbors, and friends coming in from all points shocked, pained and grieved as
only a people can be grieved when the sudden taking away from their midst of
a noble useful boy, such as was Goebel Hedges. Yes, death has been among us,
and the places that knew Goebel shall know him no more. His death was so
sudden, terrible and unexpected as to be a
tragedy, and the grief of father and
mother, two sisters and brother, so tumultuous as to be almost heart
bursting. That form which we beheld by a few
days since now lies in the silent tomb.
His spirit mingles with the noble army of the just’Äîin his death. In all the
large sanctuary of sorrow there is no chamber more sweetly shadowed than that
in which this dear boy reposes, embalmed in the double odors of parental
affection and public love. Goebel throughout his
young life was frank, open and
amiable and good for goodÃìs sake. As a man he had, of course, his faults, all
springing from one root and terminating in none apex, ultimately softening
into a repentant sorrow that was crowned with a pardon by those who knew him.
When considering him along with others of his age, we feel that the analogy of
the sun setting would be apropos: for instance, we have seen this orb
trembling at the gates of the west, reluctantly
disappearing behind the horizon,
but we knew it was to again appear and take its app9ointe place in the
firmament. So it is with Goebel. He is gone to
rise again at the call of Him who
breathed life into his body. William Goebel
Hedges was born Nov. 22nd, 1891, and
died May 25th, 1921. The remains were buried in the little cemetery at Beaver
Baptist, this county, Friday May 27th, 1921 at 2:30 p.m. The funeral was
conducted by Rev. Allen Gibson, assisted by Rev.
W. B. Garriott. The church was
filled to overflowing. Goebel had hosts of friends, as did his parents. To
show reverence and deep friendship, the entire audience arose to its feet as
the remains of the dear boy was brought into the church. Although dead, Goebel
yet speaketh ’Äî his memory will remain green and
sacred. His loss to us is his
great and everlasting gain. And now that we have lost him let us be so much
more helpful one to another, especially in the things that pertain to the
Kingdom of Heaven. May the sun that ushers in the morn rest with its soft and
mellow light upon the consecrated spot beneath
whose turf forever lies all that
was mortal of one of nature's noblemen, Goebel Hedges.
