STROKE IS FATAL TO E.B. ATTWOOD, 69, Died Suddenly at His Home Here Late Wednesday After Brief Illness

E.B. (Coot) Attwood, aged 69, well known retired farmer, died suddenly at his home here at 6:30 Wednesday evening of last week following a paralytic stroke. Mr. Attwood had been confined to his bed for several days and was apparently improving from his recent illness when he was fatally stricken.

Mr. Attwood was a member of a prominent pioneer family of this county. His parents, Capt. R.F. and Jane (Clark) Attwood, came to Arkansas in 1865 from Newberry district, South Carolina, and settled in what is now Cleveland County. Mr. Attwood, who was his parents youngest child, is the last of his immediate family to die.

Born in Smith township February 28, 1866, Mr. Attwood continued to make his home there on the old family homestead where he engaged in farming and the general mercantile business, until about nine years ago, when he moved to Rison where he erected a home on his farm just to the south of town.

Besides his wife, who before their marriage was Miss Mattie Marks, he is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Martin L. Wilson and Mrs. Calvin Walker, both of Rison; six sons, George M. Attwood of Allamore, Texas, and Harvie M., Leali, Minot, Jim and Roscoe Attwood, all of Rison; seven grandchildren, three step grandchildren and a number of nieces and nephews.

Funeral services for Mr. Attwood were held Saturday morning from the Methodist church, conducted by the pastor, the Rev. M.E. Scott, who was assisted by the Rev. W.F. Warren, pastor of the Baptist church and the Rev. F.A. Buddin, pastor of the First Methodist church, Pine Bluff.

Interment was in Greenwood cemetery with committal services by Revs. Scott and Warren.
