A CIVIL WAR SOLDIER AND PIONEER AT REST

Aaron Hawkins died at his home near Busby, Kansas, October 13th, 1926, aged 91 years, 9 months and 29 days.

He was born in Canton, Ohio, February 14, 1835. At the age of seven he moved with his parents near Watsuka, Illinois.

When our country called for volunteers in 1862, he enlisted in company I, Illinois Infantry, and served to the end of the war. He was honorably discharged in 1865.

Soon after the war he was married to Mrs. Luvina Davis, who preceded him to the better world. To this union were born six children, Charles of Topeka, Kansas; Mrs. Ella Dumond, now deceased, Mrs. Alice Berger, of New Albany, Kansas, and Henry, Clem and George of Howard, Kansas.

Mr. Hawkins came to Kansas in 1870, settling on the farm where he died. He was a true pioneer of Elk county. Brief services were held at the home conducted by a Longton minister.

A good soldier has answered the last bugle call. Taps have been sounded for the last time for him and his long suffering has ended.

He was laid to rest in the Busby Cemetery beside his companion.
