Charlie Hinson Passes Away Sunday Evening
Charlie Hinson, aged 45, and a prominent farmer living seven miles west [sic] of town, died at the family home Sunday [5 NOV 1939] evening at 6:15 o'clock. He was and [sic] ex-service man and had been ill for the greater part of a year with cancer of the stomach, and was for a time in the Veterans Hospital at Albuquerque, later on the Pacific Coast and in other hospitals where everything possible was done to arrest the ravages of his affliction. He was one of those pathetic cases in which the victim is told that there is no hope, but he fought valiantly to the end, trying any practitioner who promised help.
Mr. Hinson was a loyal member of the local Legion post and took an active interest in community affairs. He was a native of Red River County, but came to the Plains with his parents in 1910, locating at Ralls when the town was first established, and he might be called a pioneer citizen of the section. He was married in 1916 to Miss Neda [sic] Smith of the Ralls community. He came to Hockley about eight years ago, buying one of the best improved farms in this section where he had since made his home.
He is survived by his wife, four sons and five daughters, Charles Edwin, David Lee, Eugene, and Jack; Mamye Elizabeth, Nelda Frances, Martha Juanita, Mary Sue, and Patsy Charlene. He also has two sisters, Mrs. Paul Bedingfield of Lorenzo, and another living in El Paso.
The funeral was held Monday at 4 o'clock from the Christian Church at Ralls, the service being conducted by Rev. Travis of the Baptist Church, assisted by the Christian pastor.
The active pallbearers were: T. I. Robinson, B. M. Crabtree, H. E. Clingan, Bert Eads, J. L. Smallwood, and Earl Bartlett; while the honorary pallbearers named were Henry Cunningham, Chas. Mikeal, John Holland, Guy Lowry, and Pat Murphy. Both groups were from Levelland and members of the Legion Post.
Flower girls--Misses Sibal Fite, Frances Patterson, Mary Neil Patterson, Hazel Newton, Doris Parker, Erlene Lane, Ruby Smith, and Imogene Smith, all of whom live in this community.
A large concourse of friends formed a procession from this place to Ralls where he was laid to rest under the direction of the Davis-Mason Company of this place.
