THE BOSSIER BANNER
January 27, 1916
Mr. Arthur Dudney, a highly respected resident of this place, in his eighty-fifth year, died at his home Sunday, the interment taking place in Plain Dealing Cemetery Monday. Mr. Dudney was a native of Stewart County, Georgia, but was one of the older residents of this Parish, having come here prior to the War, and settled near the present trading point of Hughes Spur. He was a Confederate Veteran, having faithfully served "the Lost Cause" for four years. He was twice married. About 8 years ago he returned to Georgia and was united in marriage to his second wife, whom he had known since her childhood. She, (Mattie Evans) and a son and a daughter of the former marriage, Mr. John T. Dudney and Mrs. Nathan (Elizabeth Dudney) New of Mira, La. and several grandchildren survive him. The deceased was well liked in Plain Dealing and everywhere he had ever lived. He was at heart a good and noble man, and one of exceptionally even disposition. Kindly charitable and at all times jovial, it is little wonder that it has been freely said of him, that he had no enemies. His death is greatly deplored. As evidence of the high esteem in which he was held, all business houses were closed, Plain Dealing High School was dismissd and the pupils permitted to march in file to the cemetery to be present when the last sad rites were performed. Rev.John Keeth, assisted by Rev. C.B. Powell conducted the funeral sevice. In his fitting tribute Mr. Keeth mentioned that the home of the deceased had sheltered him when a fatherless boy. This charitable deed but reflected one of the noble traits of the deceased, and its recital seemed to touch the hearts of his many friends present.
