HOBERT UNDERWOOD, killed by train near Annadel. Son of Mr. & Mrs. Tom Underwood. (6/3/1921)


KILLING AT OAKDALE  – Finley MELTON was instantly killed, Sunday, about 4:00 o;’clock near Oakdale, seemingly for no other reason than in an argument over the Holly roller religion. It seems he and his father-in-law were discussing the holly roller religion and Melton took sides against him. and Melton’s sister-in-law, Mrs.
BROONE, became very much wrought up over the stand Melton had taken in the argument, she grabbed a
pistol and stepping between her father and Melton, aimed the pistol direct at Melton and when the pistol fired Melton fell dead. After the killing, Mrs. Broone claims she did not intend to shoot, that she only meant to bluff him. It is evident he pistol fired and Melton is dead.  Her story does not seem to have much color to it. Finley was a son of Field Melton of Lancing.  He was married and had three children.(6/10/1921)

He professed faith in Christ soon after the civil war, in a revival held by the Rev. A. B. WRIGHT”. He joined the M. E. Church and lived faithful until the Lord said it is enough and sent the Death Angel to call him to Heaven. Brother YORK would lead public prayer when called on. He was a quiet man, but a good one. He had his troubles. The Death Angel visited his home and called his children away. He had one of his legs amputated some twelve years ago, and about eight years ago his home was burned, but in all this, he, like Job of old, still held on to his integrity. We invoke the blessings of God upon his companion and children, trusting that they, like he, in the end of the journey of life shall be able to say, I am ready to go. [Written by H. A.

A. assisted 3,600 war brides in coming to the United States from Europe, and, as is known, only one of these brides went back. The war brides stuck! Their husbands, while on duty in France, offered them a home in America, whenever they got back, and we feel sure that most all of them will make good wives. It takes some grit and love to make a wife leave her own native land for a strange county she has never seen, and only knows through her visiting husband
