OBITUARY ~ HUGH OTHELLO HARSHAW
Hugh Othello Harshaw was born September 5, 1877 in Ringgold County, la. He died after a brief illness at the Community Hospital Creston, on Sept. 3d, aged 43 years, 11 months and 28 days.
He was married to Effie Rebecca Bladon, November 11 1899. To their union were born two sons, Floyd and Frederick. Floyd died when four months old, and Fred is left as the comfort and stay of his mother.
Always kind and affectionate to his family, the home circle is now most rudely broken. He leaves to mourn his loss the wife, son and aged mother, four brothers, one sister, and a host of friends. "Dort" will be so missed, for he was such a good and kind neighbor, always ready to help when help was needed. Words cannot express how he will be missed by his wife and son, for he and Fred were good pals.
Funeral services were held at the home northeast of Clearfield on Sunday at 2 p. m. Rev. Douglass of the Clearfield Methodist church officiated. The floral offerings were very beautiful. The Pall bearers were Chas. Bailey, Boyd Nevill, Roy Bailey, Guy Gard, Walter Bailey and L. A. Bush. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
