The community of Owensburg mourns the loss of Uncle Wash Hatfield, who fell dead on Saturday evening, May 31. He had been in bad health for a long time, but able, a great portion of the time to go about and to do some work in the shop. He was always cheerful even under circumstances that would have broke the spirits of others. His wife has been afflicted, being entirely helpless for many years. This gave Uncle Wash many anxious cares, which, no doubt, wore upon his constitution. He ate his supper as usual and went to help about the cows and while engaged fell dead. The deceased was born in East Tennessee, about the year 1812, and came to this state when young. He entered the land and made the farm on which he has lived for about fifty years. About fourteen years ago he selected his burial place about two hundred yards east of his dwelling where he was consigned to the tomb, to await the resurrection of the just, a large concourse of people anxious to pay him a tribute of respect, being present. His funeral was preached at the grave, by Elder Charles Graham from the scripture, "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord," yes henceforth saith the spirit they shall rest from their labors and their works do follow them. The works of this good man will follow him. It was his good fortune to be surrounded by kind children, who were always ready to supply every want. All the children were present except, probably, four that were in the west part of the county.
