CRITTENDENN PRESS ~ MAY 29, 1913.
The remains of Barton Hopkins who died May 19th, 1913 at Glenwood Springs, Colo., reached Marion Saturday morning and was taken to the home of his brother-in-law E.J. Harpending.
The remains were accompanied by Mrs. Hopkins and little son, Robin, 8 years of age, they coming all alone on the long trip almost from the coast, a distance of 2000 miles and over, to have the husband and father buried here near her old home. It will be remembered that Mrs. Hopkins was Miss Blake Harpending, daughter of Esquire. T.A. Harpending of the New Salem section.
The cause of Mr. Hopkins death was a railroad wreck in which he was injured six weeks ago and from which he never fully recovered but gradually grew worse until the end. The deceased was a mining engineer and was about 55 years of age. He was born in Illinois and was a brother to Dr. Hopkins who owns the famous Sanitarium at Glenwood Springs, Colo.
