David C. Carlock was born on War Eagle, fourteen miles south of Huntsville, Arkansas February 12, 1839. He received his early education in the schools of that time but was a constant student throughout a long life. Intensely Southern in his conviction, he enlisted in the Confederate army at the beginning of the War between the States and discharged with fidelity and distinction the duties of a valiant soldier until the star of the Southern Confederacy "went down forever in smoke and blood." He followed the flag of the noble cause, he loved with that zealous deathless devotion and sublime self-sacrifice which characterized the heroic spirits of the knightliest army of all time. On a score of famous fields of that incomparable struggle he faced death without faltering.
In October 1870 he married Mrs. Molly Sherril, a gifted young teacher. Three children were born to them, James Allison, a chief of railway postal clerks who resides in Neosho, Missouri; Ralph Ezra, a prominent farmer and Justice of the Peace who lives near Whitener, and Bernard Omri, the youngest son, a young man of unusual ability.
In the early years of his married life he lived at Huntsville but moved to Whitener twenty years ago and devoted his attention to farming and fruit culture. He was a Royal Arch Mason. He was always an active worker in the ranks of the democratic party. Although often urged to enter political life he neither sought nor desired political preferment.
He died of apoplexy on the first day of May 1912 at his home near Whitener, Arkansas. The vast throngs of people who assembled at his home and afterwards attended the funeral ceremonies at the church and cemetery was a sincere tribute to the high esteem in which he was held by those who best knew him. His wife and children, one sister and four brothers survive him. Two of his brothers have attained honorable distinction in public life, Hon. Nelson J. Carlock, on account of a long and brilliant career in the Arkansas Senate, and Rev. Albert Carlock, as an eloquent and prominent minister and former chaplain of the State Senate. He always placed conduct above empty ritualism. In his life he ever exemplified the pure precept of the golden rule. --Herschel Hughes.
