CASH, Haywood - {from The Gravett News} Haywood Cash, a man about 78 years old, committed suicide by hanging himself Tuesday between 9 a.m. and noon. He left the house in the morning for his work in the field and nothing seemed unusual about his appearance and, in fact, no thought of harm was felt until noon when he failed to appear, even for late dinner, the family became uneasy and instituted a search for him. He was found 1/4 of a mile north of his home, suspended from a limb of a chinquapin tree with a trace chain around his neck and attached to a limb above - dead. Neighbors and kind friends soon arrived and assisted in removing the body and carrying it to the house. Coroner Geo. L. Bates was notified and went immediately to the home and after carefully surveying the surroundings, summoned a jury of twelve men, who soon rendered a verdict that the deceased came to his death from his own hands, caused by temporary insanity. The funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon and conducted by Rev. Edwards after which the Masonic fraternity took charge of the remains and laid them to rest in the Edward's cemetery (obit says Edward's Cemetery by stone is in Mt. Peasant Cemetery)under the usual Masonic rites. Masonic rites. The deceased was born in North Carolina and when a child moved to Benton county with his parents where he has since resided. In 1860 he was married to Elizabeth Ford and six children were born to bless their union, five of whom with the mother survive him. He united with the Missionary Baptist church in 1886, was a consistent Christian. He joined the Masonic lodge many years ago at Pea Ridge. He was a man who was held in high esteem by all who knew him and his friends were limited by his acquaintance. [Benton County Democrat - Bentonville, Benton County, Arkansas - May 23, 1901]
