Lt. Col of the 4th Tennessee volunteer Infantry during the Spanish-American War.

Harvey H Hannah, aged 68, died at his home in Oliver Springs Sunday at 12:45
as the result of a stroke of paralysis sustained some weeks ago. Funeral
services were conducted from the high school auditorium Monday at 11 a.m.
He is survived by his wife and adopted son, Taylor Hannah. He had been a
member of the Public Utilities and Railroad Commission for 30 years and for
13 years, Chairman of that body. He was unable to make an active campaign
in the Democratic primary election last August because of ill health and was
defeated for nomination by Leon Jourolman.
Mr Hannah was regarded for many years as one of the most able and effective
orators and stump speakers of the state and was spoken of in political
campaigns as the "Little Black Bull from Roane". He was of a most kindly
and genial nature and had a wide circle of friends. Practically all of his
life he was prominent in political circles in his state and also nationally.
