Obituary of Baylis E Hunter from unidentified newspaper clipping [courtesy of Harriett Worrell, RAOGK volunteer]
Baylis E Hunter was born January 3d 1822, died March 17th, 1911, aged 89 years, two months, and fourteen days, making him the oldest native born man in the county. On January 30th , 1844, he was married to Miss Elizabeth E. Hunter, a cousin, and to this union were born Alfred B., at one time circuit clerk for this county, Matilda J., Wesley W., Louisa, Samuel J., and Hattie A. Only three children survive him, Wesley, Mrs. Matilda J. McDAniel, and Samuel, of Stephensville, Texas. For nearly ninety years Mr. Hunter has lived in Montgomery county, and that within a mile of the place of his birth; and those years have been fruitful one even beyond the description of tongue or pen. His life was the life of the church, of the Sunday school, of the prayer meeting, of the family worship, and no life ever blessed a community more. Trinity church has lost is most devoted, earnest Christian member, and Americus neighborhood and the county one of their most useful and exemplary citizens. For a year or more he suffered with a cancer on his face, and the last two weeks his sufferings were intense, of which he said: "It is for some good purpose, and I will stand it the bet I can;" and just before death came he prayed, "Lord Jesus, have mercy me," and then fell into a child-like sleep.
Sunday morning funeral services were held at Trinity church, very largely attended, considering the sickness in that community. Rev. E. J. Speer, his pastor, Rev. J. O. Edmonston, biar pastor thirty-five years ago, Rev. Rufus W. Hunley, Rev. W. B. Rigg of Readsville, Rev. _. C. Holtwick, Dr. C. H. Rigg, B. S. Baker made touching remarks as to his life, character and impress made upon them and the community. No such service was ever held in Trinity before. The remains were interred in the Hunter grave-yard.
