DOUGLAS, T. Hopkins - Died, at his home in Hoover on Monday, January 27th, 1908, T. Hopkins Douglas, familiarly known as "Uncle Hop." His remains were interred in the Douglas graveyard at noon on Wednesday the 28th inst. Mr. Douglas was born in Tennessee July 26th, 1840. In 1859 he moved to this county and made his home for one year near Pea Ridge, after which he moved to what is known as the old Douglas place, near Hoover, and in this neighborhood he lived until his death. In early manhood he was married to Miss Eliza Morris,who survives him. Of this union seven children were born, five of whom are still living. All were present with him during his last illness and death. In the year 1861 he joined the Confederate army and served throughout the war. He was a man of generous impulses and never forgot the hospitable ways of the pioneer. He was a practical, matter-of-fact man, one who united sound sense with strong convictions, was candid, outspoken and consistent, with a character above reproach. For the past few years he had been totally blind and felt that death would be a relief to him. [Benton County Democrat - Bentonville, Benton County, Arkansas - January 30,1908]
