Co.B,31st Va.Inf.Regt.;Co.F,25th Va.Inf.Regt.;Co.F,62nd
Va.Mtd.Inf.Regt. Thrown fron buggy and killed,Thorn.
The grave yet to be filled, soldiers marched single file, each depositing in the grave a piece of evergreen that he had previously worn on the label of his coat, as a memento of past friendships, and the assurance that the memory thereof would be kept green.

The grave was beautifully lined, and when completed was covered with flowers, all of these but speak of high esteem in which he was held and the kindness of loving friends.

He leaves five children, B.H. Hiner, and Mrs. W.H. Boggs, of this place. A.R. Hiner, Mrs. Mary H. Monroe, and Miss. Louie Hiner of Thorn, all of whom with their children constituting his ten grandchildren, followed the remains on the long lonely march.

He also leaves one brother John J. Hiner of McDowell, and four half sisters, who live in Baltimore, two of whom were here.

Captain Hiner had arranged or rather his son B.H. Hiner had arranged that they attend the Confederate Reunion and unveiling of the Monument at Beverly, on the 30th of this month but another verification of the old adage, "Man propsese, but God disposes." The morning after his death his son sent the following telegram, which received at the Reunion and read: Maj. J.F. Harding, Beverly, W.Va., - Had fully arranged to attend your reunion in company with my father Capt. Harman Hiner, of the old 25th Virginia Regiment, to which we both looked forward with much pleasure. But, last night he answered the last great roll call.

NOTE: The rest of this article is torn away, the top half is also torn away.
His death was due to being thrown from something.
