James D. Coleman

 

James D. Coleman was born in Henry County, KY, July 14, 1851 and fell asleep at his home in Pleasureville, November 7, 1902.  In early life he united with the Methodist Church at old Mt. Zion, near his home, and his membership remained there until he moved to Pleasureville, nine years ago.  His last illness was short, his departure sudden.  A deep cold, not thought to be dangerous, developed into pneumonia and two days after the physician was called in quietly and peacefully went away when we did not expect it , though I think he did.  It was a shock to us, so sudden, but not too sudden for one already prepared.

 

In 1876 he was happily married to Miss Mattie Hall, who survives him in lovely widowhood after more than a quarter of a century of devoted and happy companionship.

 

He also leaves an aged mother and two half-brothers to mourn his loss.

 

He was laid to rest on November 9, 1902.  The day was bright and typical of the heavenly day.  The large gathering of friends attested the esteem in which he was held.  Bro. Taliaferro, a former pastor, came and assisted the writer in the funeral services, which were held at the Baptist Church, the church of his wife.  His pastor, C. H. Greer

Harris, another Negro girl who is only 16 years of age.  The cutting took place about dusk near “Brick Row”, a colored settlement of Eminence.  The girl was brought to New Castle, after it was impossible to find a doctor in Eminence, where she was treated by Dr. W. W. Leslie.  Dr. Leslie stated that when she was treated in his office that life was almost gone and that she was barely conscious. According to some of the colored folks of Eminence, there had been hard feelings between the two girls for some time and that on the previous night, Saturday, they had fought in the Odd Fellows Hall where a dance was being held. 

 

Funeral services for the Negro girl were held in Eminence, Wednesday.

Ellen Hammond

 

Mrs. Ellen Hammond died here at her home last Thursday after a very short illness of acute indigestion.  Mrs. Hammond or “Dommie”, as she was called by many, was so well known by all in this community – her Christian character so well established, that any praise from us seems needless.

 

She was Miss Ellen Powell before her marriage to Mr. W. Hammond, who preceded her to the grave nine years.  Mrs. Hammond reared quite a large family of children, all of whom are known and honored for their upright and Christian character, a fact that evidences the loving and tender care of a devoted mother.  Mrs. Hammond leaves two daughters and three sons, besides several grandchildren.  Six of her children had “crossed the river” and she has gone to be with the loved ones gone before.

 

Mrs. Hammond was 76 years of age, and had been for 52 years a faithful member of the Baptist Church here, where her funeral was preached last Saturday morning by Rev. Mr. Osborn, her pastor, assisted by Rev. Mr. Johnson of the M. E. Church South, after which she was laid to rest in the cemetery here close beside her loved ones gone before.

G. W. Hammond

 

Once more we are made to realize the uncertainty of life, and that those who apparently have the longest lease are sometimes suddenly called away.  Goodloe Hammond died Friday, February 18 (1898), at 7:15 p.m.  Noble, generous and kind, a loving father and friend to all, his taking away leaves a vacancy in our midst which cannot be filled.  Our community has lost a useful citizen, the wife and children a devoted husband and father, but “He who sees the sparrow ”fall” will sustain them with His love and guide them with His council.    W. E. B.    North Pleasureville  February 21, 1898

 Johnston Hammond

 

There are hundreds of sad deaths all over the land today.  Many, many heart strings are torn and the joy of life seems far removed from many, but one of the saddest deaths was that of Johnston Hammond who died at the Great Lakes Training Camp on September 25.  Strong and robust when he left home in July, it seemed that nothing short of German savagery could lay him low.  No thought of danger entered into the minds of friends and loved ones in regard to Johnston until he should be trained and leave for over the sea.  Just as soon as he could get permission he sent for his young wife.  They were so happy for a few weeks and then the dreaded disease seized him.  They removed him to the hospital, refused to let her go with him, and advised her to come home.  It is well that she did, foe she, too, was soon sick.  Racked with pain , and a high fever, the suspense of waiting to hear from Johnston; then his death; a long delay in shipping the remains – from Wednesday until Monday – with fear that the body was lost – all these things we think make it the saddest death we know of.

 

A large crowd attended funeral, preached by Rev. C. L. Bohon, which was held out in the open.

W. L. Hammond

 

Once more has the grim monster, death, entered our midst and this time called one of our oldest and best citizens, W. L. Hammond, who departed this life  Tuesday, March10 (1903).  He was born in Shelby County near here and has spent most of his life among the people of this place being one of the leaders in anything for the good of the community.  He was within a few weeks of the 73rd anniversary of his birthday.  He was in his prime, a blacksmith by trade and has a son that follows him in his occupation.  He was to some extent paralyzed a few years ago, since which time he has done no real work but has kept going all the time until about a week before his death.

 

The funeral services were held by Rev. (L. M.) Theobald, his pastor at the Baptist Church, of which he was a true and faithful member and from which he will be greatly missed. 

 

He leaves a wife, three sons, two daughters and several granddaughters to mourn their loss but his gain in the world beyond.
