COLUMBIA, Aug. 11. — Oscar B. Hundley, a resident of Oakland, California, died here yesterday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. D. Yarb[o]rough after an illness of about three weeks' duration. The deceased was born on the 16th of July, 1853, and on the twelfth of November, 1874, he was married to Alitia E. Daws, who was a daughter of Lewis M. Daws, the first man to be elected to the office of sheriff of Caldwell parish on the Democratic ticket after the close of the Civil War.
Of this marriage twelve children were born, three of whom died in their infancy, and those surviving him are: Mrs. J. H. Cloyd of West Monroe, La.; Mrs. W. D. Vaughn, of San Leandro, California; Mrs. J. D. Yarb[o]rough of Columbia, La.; Mrs. A. M. Whittington of Oakland, California; O. L. Hundley of Columbia, La.; Mrs. M. D. Stockwell of Lake Charles, La.; Mrs. H. L. Willis of Oakland, California and Archie E. [sic D.] Hundley of Oakland, California.
The deceased was a resident of Caldwell parish from his early childhood until about fifteen years ago when he moved to Lake Charles, where he lived until about three years ago when to moved to Oakland, California. Mrs. Hundley, the wife of the deceased, died at their home in California on the 17th [sic 15th] day of May, 1923. The deceased came here on a visit in the early part of July of this year, and was taken sick shortly after his arrival. He was a son of Dr. A. L. Hundley who practiced medicine in Caldwell parish for many years and died at his residence here in the early eighties. Mrs. Carrie Meredith of Shreveport is a sister of the deceased.
The deceased is survived by numerous other relatives besides those mentioned in this ketch. The deceased was a member of the Baptist church for many years, and in the year of 1895 he was ordained as a minister, and remained active in the work until his health failed him about three years ago when he removed to Oakland, California, and having apparently regained his health he came here on a visit to relatives and friends in the early part of July.
The deceased was interred in Hillside cemetery here last night at eight o'clock in the presence of one of the largest audiences that ever attended a funeral service in this town.
