ALEXANDER COURTLAND HALL , one of Barry's most widely known residents, died at his home on Mortimer Street at 11:10 o'clock Tuesday morning, August 25. Mr. Hall, in poor health for several months, had been confined to his bed the past three weeks. He lapsed into a state of coma on Sunday from which he failed to rally, only for short intervals. Mr. Hall spent the past winter in Centerville, Miss., with his daughter, Mrs. Lily Peck, and while in the south he was taken desperately ill. Several weeks were spent in a Centerville hospital following a minor operation. Mr. Hall regained considerable vitality and with the spring came an urge to return home, so Mrs. Peck came here with him and has been with her father constantly. Another daughter, Mrs. Ray Kuntz of Miami, Okla., came to Barry soon after her father's health began failing, but returned home after several weeks. A telegram reached her Sunday morning and catching a bus within a short time after the message was delivered, she reached her father's bedside Monday morning and Mr. Hall recognized her. Alex Hall was born in the month of June, 1851, and just two months ago quietly observed his 85th birthday. Married Anna A Reynolds January 30, 1876. He was always a very active and alert man and possessed remarkable vitality for a man his age. He enjoyed traveling and got more pleasure out of just being alive than the average person. For a number of years the Hall family lived on a farm near Barry. Selling the farm Mr. and Mrs. Hall retired and bought their nice home in Barry. They usually spent the winters with their daughters in Oklahoma and Mississippi. Mrs. Hall died on May 19, 1928. That was the first break in the family circle. Then Mrs. Olive Pierce, wife of frank Pierce, a daughter, died October 31, 1929. Mr. Hall lived according to the golden rule. He loved flowers and always cultivated them. He was fond of birds and music and a lover of nature. The first thing in his life, though, was his family and home. He is survived by three daughters and a son, namely: Mrs. Ray Kuntz of Miami, Okla., Mrs. Lily Peck of Centerville, Miss., Mrs. Florence Cantril of Miami, Fla., and Floyd Hall of Quincy. The Halls also raised a boy in their home, Martin Chillion now of Quincy, who only recently visited Mr. Hall. He also leaves several grandchildren and a number of great-grandchildren. There is also one brother, John H. Hall of Barry, and one sister, Mrs. Martha Phenneger, also of this city. The funeral services will be held from the Hall residence at 3:00o'clock Thursday afternoon, August 27, in charge of Rev. J. A. Johnson, pastor of the Methodist church and interment will be made in Park Lawn cemetery.
