HEART ATTACK IS FATAL TO COUNTY FARMER AT HOME HERE SATURDAY
Apollis Carlyle Hourigan, 67, for many years a prominent farmer and stock raiser of the county, died suddenly Saturday morning about 9:15 o'clock at his home on the corner of South Proctor Knott Avenue and Chandler Street. His passing was attributed to a heart attack with wich he was stricken a few minutes previously.
Accompanied by his grandson, Edward Hourigan, he had been to his farm on the Barbour's Mill Pike earlier that morning and assisted in loading some livestock on a truck for transfer to the local stock yards. Enroute to Lebanon he stated that he was ill but by the time he reached the stock yards said he was feeling much better. Taken to his residence after the cattle had been unloaded, he sat down in a chair and almost immediately complained that he could not see. He was assisted to his bed where he died before a physician arrived.
Mr. Hourigan had been subject to heart trouble for some time and in November, 1944, suffered a severe attack. The following February, because of his condition, he moved from his farm to Lebanon, where he purchased from J. W. Dawson his present home. He had been in better health than usual prior to the fatal seizure, members of his family said.
A son of the late Apollis and Nancy Clarkson Hourigan, Mr. Hourigan was born in this county on May 26, 1878, and had always make his home here. Unpon completing his courses of study in the county schools he began his career as a farmer and stockman. Forty-two years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Martha Virginia Harmon, the ceremony having been performed by the Rev. A. S. Graves, then pastor of the local Baptist Church. The couple lived on his Barbour's Mill Pike property until thier recent moved to this city.
