OBITUARY - Died Suddenly
Saturday our little city was greatly shocked when the news was phoned in here that Enoch Hooker had died suddenly. Mr. Hooker had spent the evening in town and left here after four o'clock and had been at home only a short time when he was stricken down.
Drs. W. C. Ingram and H. E. Epperson were called and an autopsy was held to determine the cause of his death which was found to be heart trouble.
Mr. Hooker was born on March 12, 1848 and was married to Miss Ida Gable, July 11, 1871. To this union fifteen children were born, eleven of which are living. He was a member of the United Brethren church and was a highly respected citizen. Funeral services were conducted by Re. Potter at the Locust Valley church Tuesday, July 5th in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends, after which his body was laid to rest in the Hooker cemetry(sic).
