Death of E. S. Hadlock
E. S. Hadlock, one of Foss' oldest and most highly respected citizens, died Saturday morning. Death was due to pneumonia, which followed a light stroke of paralysis five days before his death.
The funeral service was held at the Methodist church Sunday afternoon, and was largely attended. Rev. R. I. Graham, pastor of the church had charge of the service. Brother Masons conducted the body from the church to Foss cemetery where it was buried.
Ezekiel Sites Hadlock was born in Polk county, Indiana, Feb. 11, 1842, lacking less than a month of being 80 years old at his death.
At the age of 20 he with five brothers volunteered in the Union army for service in the Civil war, enlisting in the 58th Indiana infantry. He served 3 years and 10 months and took part in many battles, among them being Vicksburg and Chickamaugee. In the latter engagement he was wounded in the shoulder which injury bothered him through the rest of his life.
In 1866 he was married to Mrs. Sarah Rachel Green. To them were born five children, all of whom are living: W. J. Hadlock of Foss, Alex Hadlock of Calumet, Mrs. H. A. Gale of Cordell, Mrs. Boone Johnson of Tulsa and Mrs. Emma Chapman of Durant. His wife died in Indiana in 1880. He was later married Mrs. Mary Payne, and two children were born to this union, Mrs. Will Royse and Mrs. M. Brennaman of Elk City. Five of the seven children were at their father's bedside at his death. ---Foss Enterprise.
