Oldest Citizen Of Dickens County Died SaturdayUncle Jimmy Hutson, one of the oldest settlers and citizens of Dickens county, died last Saturday at a sanitarium in Wichita Falls, his remains being brought back here Sunday and interred in the Dickens cemetery.
Uncle Jimmy Hutson was about seventy eight years of age. He was one of the oldest real settlers of the county having come here in 1888, located and settled on a home in the Red Mud country. In his earlier years he was active in every movement for the betterment of conditions and the development of the country. A number of years ago the infirmities of age interrupted further activities, and for some time before death he was confined in a Wichita sanitarium. He was the father of Mrs. H.P. Cole, county treasurer elect, and Mrs. T.M. Green, of Dickens.
One by one the old timers who endured the hardships of a new country in paving the way for present day progress are passing to their reward. They rendered a real service here, deserve a rich reward in the Great Beyond and we honor them in our memory
