Carl Hieatt

 

          A large mass of people assembled at the Baptist Church Sunday afternoon to pay their last respects to the remains of Corp. Aaron Carl Hieatt, the third son of Mrs. Annie Hieatt.  He was killed in the Argonne Forest, November 9, 1918, in one of the hardest fought battles of the war.

            Private Carl Hieatt left Eminence on May 29, 1912, to entrain at Camp Beauregard, LA, from which he was rushed to the front.  It is a very sad fact that he was separated from all of the Henry County boys except George Scott of Campbellsburg, who was with him until midnight before the day on which he was killed.  Mr. Scott said Carl was a fearless soldier, quite ready to make the supreme sacrifice, if necessary, in order to triumph over the enemy.  Carl’s greatest hope was for the Germans to suffer a crushing defeat with America taking the leading part.  He wished for a speedy accomplishment of the great task if it was God’s will and said he knew there was a place in Heaven for him.  He was made a corporal on the very day a machine gun bullet hit him, killing him instantly.

            The funeral was conducted Sunday afternoon, September 18, by Rev. W. G. Eldred, Pastor of the Eminence Christian Church, of which Carl was a member.  He was assisted by Rev. Mr. Smith of the local Baptist Church.  A quartet from Eminence sang so sweetly, “Some Time We’ll Understand”.  The music from the choir was exceedingly sweet.

            After the services at the church, the American Legion took charge and conducted special services at the grave – services that stir ones patriotism and develop the comforting thought that young Carl Hieatt did not die in vain.

            The pall bearers were Messrs. Raymond Adams, Levy Morris, Ben Pollard, Worth Ellis, Guthrie and James Crabb.

            He is survived by his mother: Mrs. Annie Hieatt; three sisters: Mrs. Lewis Brown, Shelbyville, Mrs. Frank Caplinger, and Miss Elizabeth Hieatt; five brothers: Chester, Ira, of Louisville and Jewel, Richard and Virgil Hieatt; two aunts: Miss Dixie and Lillie McAllister and three Uncles W. T. and Allen Hieatt and R. A. McAllister.

            The body of the gallant soldier was laid to rest in the family lot here (Smithfield Cemetery).  There were many beautiful floral offerings from sympathetic friends.
