The Barber County Index, November 7, 1900.

Samuel A. Hayes

Died: Death claimed another old Barber county citizen last Thursday night, November 1st - Samuel A. Hayes.

Mr. Hayes suffered many weeks from internal derangements caused by a runaway during the summer.

He recovered temporarily from the injuries received at the time of the accident but suffered more or less all the time. The peculiar feature about his sickness was that he recovered his voice and talked aloud a few days before his death.

The funeral services were held from the family residence on Friday, under the auspices of the G.A.R., Rev. J.F. Irwin, officiating. The deceased was 57 years and two months of age.

He served his country with credit in the civil war and came to Barber county in its early days of settlement.

He leaves a wife and three grown children - Frank R., Wilbur, of this city, and Mrs. W.H. Lewis, of Kiowa. To them the sincere sympathy of the community is extended.

[Eldred Post G.A.R. Resolution follows.]
