"PROMINENT BERRY GROWER VICTIM OF PARALYSIS
For 27 years He Had Made Carthage His Home
H. C. Berryman, for many years a resident of Carthage, died at 9:40 o'clock last night at his home on East Thirteenth Street, aged 63 years.
He is survived by a wife and eight children. The children are:
Clarence Berryman of Carthage
Mrs. James Hedge of Van Buren, Arkansas
Mrs. Mabel Earnhardt of Springfield
Mrs. Cartherine Stricker of Carthage route 8
Roy J. Berryman, who has been stationed at the aviation camp at Pensacola, Florida and is now probably on the ocean enroute to France
Misses Rose, Maude and Nelly Berryman,
who reside at the home of their parents.
Mr. Berryman was stricken with paralysis last Sunday morning and had been unconscious most of the time since. He had been suffering from heart trouble much of the time for the last year.
Mr. Berryman has resided here 27 years. He was born in Frederickton, this state, and grew to manhood there. From that place he went to Bentionville, Arkansas and there was married to Miss Rhodes, who survives him. He and his wife lived at Bentonville for two years following their wedding and then moved to Carthage.
For the past 17 years they have resided at the home where Mr. Berryman passed away last night.
He had always engaged extensively here in the growing of strawberries and was chiefly instrumental in organizing the Carthage Strawberry Growers' Association six or seven years ago. He has been it's president from the first, until, at the annual election of officers last month, he declined re-election on account of his health.
Early in life he joined the Christian church. He was for five years a deacon in the Christian church of Carthage.
The funeral will be held at 2:30 tomorrow afternoon at the Christian church and burial will be in Park Cemetery. This plan will not be changed unless by chance word should come from the son, Roy, to the effect that he is on his way here from Pensacola, Florida to attend the funeral. In such a contingency the funeral would be postponed until he arrives. this son has not been heard from for three weeks and, as he wrote regularly before that and had stated that he expected to leave soon, it is felt certain that he is now on his way to France. Telegrams telling of his father's illness and death have brought no response, further confirming the theory that he is no longer in camp."
