|Barnard, Billy Max
infant son of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Barnard died Wednesday night of
pneumonia. The baby had never been well during the short stay here
and was not able to overcome the steady ravages of the dread
disease. Everything that would help was done, but the little life
could not be saved. Hope was expressed for his recovery two or three
weeks ago, but the last few days brought a change for the worse.
The little body was laid away in the local cemetery Thursday
afternoon. Rev. H. C. Smith of the Methodist Church conducted the
service. Friends and acquaintances of the family feel a great
sympathy for the bereaved ones. The Happy Herald, 11

The town was sadly
shocked Monday about noon to hear of the sudden death of Mrs.
Charles Sutton, who is well known here. Mrs. Sutton, who was 43
years old, 4 mos. and 20 days old at the time of her death, has
been living on the Plains since she was three years old, with
the exception of one year spent in Glen Rose, Texas. Her
parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Wesley, are pioneers of this section
of the country. She was a member of the Baptist Church at
Fairview, having been a Christian since she was 12 years old.
Twenty years ago she was married to CHARLIE SUTTON and eight
children were born to this union, all of which are living. Their
ages range from 19 to 4 years and only one, the second child,
called Bud, is married. The funeral services were held at
the Wayside church and was preached by Rev. Malone of Plainview
at 2 p.m. Tuesday. Rev. Malone was Mrs. Sutton's pastor.
She is survived by the husband, eight children, her parents, Mr.
and Mrs. H. E. Wesley, four brothers, P. E. Wesley, H. B.
Wesley, J. W. Wesley and G. E. Wesley, and one sister Mrs. Ella
