Great Throng at Prof. Anderson N. Locklear's Rites
A crowd estimated at 1,000 people packed the Indian Normal school auditorium at Pembroke Sunday afternoon to pay a last tribute to Prof. Anderson N. Locklear, 62, Indian leader, teacher for 40 years, whose death Friday at 5 p.m. followed an illness extending over several months. He had been in critical condition for some time. Interment was made in the cemetery at Berea Baptist church, Pembroke, beneath a mound of flowers.
Arranged Own Funeral
Arrangements for this funeral were made by Prof. Locklear 6 months before his death. Carrying out his wish, Rev. C. E. Locklear, pastor of Harpers Ferry Baptist church, of which he was a member and deacon, had charge of the service and the sermon was preached by Rev. S. A. Hammonds, classmate of deceased. Other ministers assisting were Rev. J. E. Sawyer, president of the Indian normal, of which Prof. Locklear was a member of the board of trustees, and Rev. M. C. Lunsford, missionary to the Indians. Prayer was offered by Prof. M.L. Lowry and E. B. Sampson.
Songs by the congregation included "Jesus Savior Pilot Me," "Abide with Me," "Asleep in Jesus." A quartet composed of W. M. R. Locklear, C. L. Maynor, Prentis and Archie Locklear sang in the auditorium "When the Mist" and "One Sweetly Solemn Thought." Several selections were given by the quartet at the grave.
Pallbearers were: active-Clifton Oxendine, M.L. Lowry, W. G. Revels, Lacy Maynor, Horace Jacobs, Dawley Maynor; honorary-trustees of the Indian normal. Flower girls were Leona Lowry, Daisy and Modie Lee Hatchell, Grace Smith, Anna Jacobs, Ruby Scott, Annie Ruth Oxendine.
Deceased is survived by his wife by second marriage; a son, Prof. Roscoe Locklear, teacher at Prospect; a daughter, Mrs. E. R. Cummings of Buie; 7 brothers-Richard of Buie, Patrick, Larantee, Solomon, Leonard, Dickson, John Daniel, Wakulla; a sister-Mrs. Janie Locklear of Maxton.
The following was taken from the Mar. 29, 1934 edition of THE ROBESONIAN:
Robeson County lost a noble and useful citizen in the death a few days ago of Prof. Anderson N. Locklear. He was a member of the first class of the Indian Normal school at Pembroke and went out from that institution to lead a life of service among his people. For 22 years he was a trustee of his alma mater and for 40 years he taught in the Indian schools of the county. His life was an open book. He stood for the hightest and best in life and exerted an untold influence for good. Rev. J. E. Sawyer, president fo the Indian Normal, paid a deserved tribute to Prof. Locklear at the funeral: "Surely," he said, "one of earth's noblemen has passed on to his reward-noble in character, in thought and ain all he did."
No higher tribute could be paid to any man.
