DEATH CLAIMS P. E. HOURIGAN
RETIRED FARMER, BANKER AND MASONIC FIGURE DIES AT INFIRMARY SATURDAY
Paul Evans Hourigan, 83, retired farmer and for more than twenty years president of the Peoples Bank at Gravel Switch, died Saturday morning shortly before 1:30 o'clock at the Mary Immaculate Infirmary to which he was admitted for treatment several weeks previously. In steadily declining health for nearly three years and in almost feeble condition in recent months, his passing was not unexpected. During the early winter, he spent a brief time at the local hospital for special medical care but afterward was able to be dismissed and returned to the Cecil Hotel, where he had been making his home since disposing of his farm on the Danville Highway in 1944.
CHARTER DIRECTOR OF BANK
Mr. Hourigan had been a director of the Peoples Bank since it was founded in 1911 and had long served as its president. He is a past commander of Marion Commandery No. 24, a past master of T. W. Wash Lodge No. 430 at Gravel Switch and had at one time or another filled virtually every office in both the Lodge and the Commandery.
A son of the late Apollos and Nancy Clarkson Hourigan, Mr. Hourigan was born at Gravel Switch on September 3, 1866, and spent his youth in that community where he obtained his early education. Later, he attended Georgetown College and upon completion of his course there returned to this county to begin his career as an agriculturist.
As a young man he was united in marriage to Miss Sally Reno and a few years later moved to the farm which he operated on the Danville Highway seven miles from town until its sale six or seven years ago. Some twenty-two years after the death of his first wife in 1903, he was married to Mrs. Winnie Lane, who also preceded him to the grave by less than a decade. It was after his second wife's passing that he disposed of his rural property and moved to Lebanon.
FORMER DEACON IN CHURCH
Long a member of the Baptist Church, he had been affiliated with the church of that denomination in this city since 1916 and until ill health prevented was active in its various departments. . At one time he served as a deacon. Surviving him are a son, Clifton Hourigan of Lebanon Junction; a stepdaughter, Mrs. Ray Cochran of Lebanon, and two sisters, Miss Dixie Hourigan of this city and Mrs. James D. Baxter of Harrodsburg. The late J. T. T. Hourigan, a former Grand Commander of the Grand Commander of Kentucky, Knights Templar, was a brother. Funeral services were conducted at the residence of Mrs. Cochran Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock by Dr. F. G. Schlafer, Baptist minister, and interment took place in Ryder Cemetery. Masonic rites at the grave were directed by the Grave Switch Masonic Lodge
