The following obituary was published in The Courier, Evansville, Indiana, on June 27, 1902: "Reached Ripe Old Age of Ninety Years "William Hunnel, Formerly of This City, Dead at Henderson "Remains Will Come Here "Deceased Was One of the Early Odd Fellows in the State -- A Strong Republican "William F. Hunnel, a former resident of Vanderburg county, died at Henderson, Ky., Thursday morning at 4 o'clock at the advanced age of 90 years. His remains will be sent here today for burial. "Mr. Hunnel was born and raised in this county and was well known throughout the county. About two years ago he moved with his wife to Henderson where he resided up to the time of his death. "The widow who survives Mr. Hunnel was his second wife. Mr. Hunnel was one of the early Odd Fellows in this part of the state and took a pride in the order. "Eight children survive Mr. Hunnel, five boys and three girls. They are Henry, James, Thomas, Jacob and David. The three daughters are Mrs. Fred Tinnemeyer, Mrs. Henry Haynie and Mrs. John M. Wilson, all of this city. "In the late years of his life, Mr. Hunnel never did anything but lived a life of ease and contentment. Years ago he took an active part in politics in this county and was an uncompromising republican. He never held any office. "The arrangements for the funeral have not yet been arranged but the services will probably be held Saturday." This announcement appeared two days later in the same newspaper: "William Hunnel Buried "The remains of the late William Hunnel were laid to rest at Oak Hill cemetery Saturday afternoon. The services were held at the home of Henry Haynie at 700 Cherry street. "The ceremonies were in charge of the Morning Star Odd Fellows. Rev. J. W. Turner, former pastor of the Trinity M. E. church, preached the sermon. The services were largely attended and the floral offerings were many."
