Charles Going
Pocahontas, March 23 -- (Special)

-- Charles Going, aged about 60, well-to-do farmer and land owner, died early Sunday morning at his home in South Pocahontas. He was ill of smallpox and before he had recovered from his illness, suffered an attack of paralysis, which proved fatal. He is said to have confided to friends some months ago that he feared paralysis. He is survived by his widow, two sons and two daughters. Funeral services were held today with burial in the Masonic cemetery. (end)

Charles was the first child born to Alonzo J and Lucy Ann Ratliff Going.

He married Sarah Ann Looney 09 Oct 1890 in Hamil, Randolph County, Arkansas.

He was preceded in death by his father, Alonzo J Going, his mother, Lucy Ann Ratliff-Going Sudduth, a younger brother, William Whitfield Going, and his oldest son, Alonzo Stubblefield Going.

Besides his wife and children, he also leaves behind a brother, John Walter Alonzo Going, and a half brother, James Mordica Oscar Sudduth.


During Charles' lifetime he was a very busy man:

1. He served many times on the Randolph County Grand Jury as well as the Petit Jury;

2. Before moving to Pocahontas he was well known as the Elm Store Mule and Horse Trader (To quote the Pocahontas Star Herald Newspaper: "When Charley gets after a mule colt with his tape measure and check book there is something doing.");

3. He was appointed many times to represent the Democratic Party of Randolph County at the State Conventions held in Little Rock;

4. He was elected as the First Vice President and one of three appraisers at the formation meeting of the Farm Loan Association of Randolph County;

5. He was elected as Randolph County Food Administrator during World War I to ensure the county abided by the restrictions put on seed, wheat, flour, sugar, beef, lamb, eggs, corn meal and to make sure the threshing machines were kept in proper working condition.

He kept this position until the Pocahontas Star Herald reported on August 23, 1918, Charles resigned because of the illness of his eldest son, Alonzo, who died on September 1.

6. He was always active in raising money for the County and the War efforts;

7. But more importantly he was a self employed farmer and stock dealer.

Charles is my Great Grandfather.
