Death again saddened the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Ballard
Sunday night when the life of their infant baby ebbed away. The
baby was only a week old when heart failure claimed its life.
Funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon at 2
o'clock with Rev. Smith, pastor of the Ballard family, in charge
of the service. Interment was made in the Happy Cemetery near
the grave of the little daughter Mr. and Mrs. Ballard lost not
many months ago. The Happy Herald, 22 November

W. O. Sanders, 17,
was killed Friday afternoon by the discs of a one way plow under
which he fell from the tractor he was driving for Lee Pearson.
He had been working on the Pearson farm about 30 days, having
come here from Walnut Grove, Ala, his home. The family
insisted the boy be buried here. The people of Happy and the
county contributed to the burial expenses and Mr. Pearson made
beautiful floral offerings. The services were
held at 4 p.m. Saturday in the William Furniture and Undertaking
Company, and John Scott of Tulia conducted the services. The
remains were laid to rest in the local cemetery. The boy is
survived by his mother, Mrs. Parmer of Walnut Grove, Ala., a
brother and sister in Walnut Grove, and a sister in Detroit,
Mich. If there are other members of the family, the people here
did not know of them. The father is dead.
The community is to be commended for the liberal and sympathetic
spirit with which they rendered assistance. No doubt, the family
will be grateful, and glad the boy was in the midst of friends.
