He was convereted the last of May 1898, and was baptized at Syracuse, Morgan county, this state, on the 1st of June, same year, and united with the Protestant Methodist church at New Hope, Benton county. No one could ever charge Uncle Jack with laziness, for there was not a lazy bone in his body. Industrious and honest, he accumulated some of this world's goods, leaving his children all well situated. Though it was late in life ere he gave his heart to God, he lived a consistent Christian life to the end, regretting that he had not made peace with his Lord sooner, and advised his boys not to do as he had done.

John Wm. Morgan died at his home 2 1/2 miles northeast of Hartwell at 1 a.m., Tuesday, August 30th, with Bright's Disease. He had been in failing health for some time and seriously ill since August 2nd. During the days of suffering he made no complaint and welcomed all with his sunny smile that was so characteristic of him during his life time spent in this neighborhood, as he was born August 29, 1864, a half mile west of where he died. He was united in marriage to Miss Amanda Belle Hendrick, May 13, 1903. This devoted wife remained his sweetheart, their first separation being when he was called to his reward. She is left with the sweet memory of a devoted husband and of the years of sweet companionship which has been theirs. He also leaves one brother, R. M. Morgan nearby; also a nephew, Estell Morgan, who lives on the Morgan home place, which belonged to their parents, Reuben and Amanda Morgan, who came to Henry county from Kentucky. John Morgan was converted and united with the Hartwell Baptist church, when a young man. In fact, the congregation at that time worshipped in the schoolhouse. He helped build the present structure and had been the clerk of the church for many years and was still honored by this important position at the time of his death. He was regular in church attendance and translated the teachings of the Master into every day living. He was honest and upright, his word was as good as his bond. He was well known throughout Tebo Baptist Association and this year was one of the few he had missed since his conversion. His death is a loss to the community as his neighbors knew that in him they had a real friend. He had their love and respect so much, they felt like they had lost a relative. He was a successful farmer and stockman. Rev. Turnage conducted the service at the Hartwell Baptist church Wednesday. His body was laid beneath a wealth of flowers in the Norris cemetery.

Montrose Recorder, Jul 17 1914 - A Sad Death - Mace Morgan, son of Dodge Morgan who lives a few miles northwest of Calhoun, attended the Fourth of July celebration in Clinton on last Saturday. He and his father lived alone together. He intended going home on the afternoon train but failed to catch it. He left Clinton on about midnight to walk home, hoping to be there in time to get breakfast for his aged father. Sunday morning his body was found on the railroad track about three miles from Clinton terribly mangled by the many cars that had passed over him. No one seems to be able to account for his being on the track, unless in a fainting spell to which he was subject, he fell upon the track and was thus in the passing train. He was buried in Calhoun Monday.

She was all things that went to make a good and happy home and the companionship of her husband and devotion of her children crowned her life with happiness, and lent skill to her fingers in all she did for them. Surviving are her husband, one daughter, Mrs. Zella Bradley of Clinton; two sons, Sterling of Leeton and Logan of Windsor; three grandchildren and one half brother, James Pinkston of near Calhoun.

The Supreme Sacrifice: Oral Merritt Morgan was born in Henry County, Missouri, Sep 29 1895 and died in the hospital at Prum, Germany, Jan. 9, 1919, aged 23 years, 3 months and 10 days. Deceased had lived all his life, until a year ago, on the farm near Hartwell. At the age of 15 years he united with the Hartwell Baptist church and ever since that was a constant and sincere worker for the Lord. Dec. 12 1917, he was united in marriage with Miss Hattie Harbstreet, who with his father and mother, R. M. Morgan and wife and one brother, J. E. Morgan, are left to mourn his sad and untimely departure. Feb. 26 1918, he answered his country's call and left for Camp Funston, KS and after 3 months of training sailed for France on May 26th, as a member of the 89th division, with which he remained until his death which was caused by influenza, followed by bronchial pneumonia. As is known to all newspaper readers the 89th division participated in much of the most desperate fighting of the western front, and the wife and parents, after the Armistice, were very anxious to have a letter stating that he had passed safely through the ordeal. That letter came and they joyously began to look forward to his safe home coming. But their hopes were dashed to earth, and in a way that seems almost cruel. After he had safely passed through the rain of shot and shell, hat he should be so unexpectedly cut down by disease, is almost unbearable. But he now sleeps peacefully with other heroes 'neath the soil of a foreign land and has made the supreme sacrifice for his home and country. It is proper in connection with this obituary, that we publish a letter received by the relatives from seven of his comrades in arms as follows: Lemebach, Germany, Jan. 13 1919 - To the dear wife and parents: It is with extreme regret that we write to you of the death of your beloved husband and son, and wish to extend to you our most heartfelt sympathies in this great sorrow of yours. We, as his squad mates, want you to know and feel that in his sickness he had every attention possible. When he first felt sick he reported to the infirmary and there he received treatment and at the house where he stayed the lady of the house gave him the best bed and also care that could be given even by a nurse. The next morning we persuaded him to report to the doctor, who then sent him to the hospital at Prum, Base hospital where he received the best of care, both from nurses and doctors. He was also visited by our chaplain. But as the Lord had wished it so, our brave comrade and associate was called West. His funeral was attended by the two chaplains and also by representatives of our organization. He now lies in the American cemetery beside many of his comrades at Prum, Germany. We are writing this so you can feel easy, for his care was of the best and we are sorry to lose his cheerful nature as a comrade, and as your faithful son and husand. Signed: Horace N.
