Charlie Hinson Passes Away Sunday Evening

Charlie Hinson, aged 45, and a prominent farmer living seven miles west [sic] of town, died at the family home Sunday [5 NOV 1939] evening at 6:15 o'clock. He was and [sic] ex-service man and had been ill for the greater part of a year with cancer of the stomach, and was for a time in the Veterans Hospital at Albuquerque, later on the Pacific Coast and in other hospitals where everything possible was done to arrest the ravages of his affliction. He was one of those pathetic cases in which the victim is told that there is no hope, but he fought valiantly to the end, trying any practitioner who promised help.

Mr. Hinson was a loyal member of the local Legion post and took an active interest in community affairs. He was a native of Red River County, but came to the Plains with his parents in 1910, locating at Ralls when the town was first established, and he might be called a pioneer citizen of the section. He was married in 1916 to Miss Neda [sic] Smith of the Ralls community. He came to Hockley about eight years ago, buying one of the best improved farms in this section where he had since made his home.

He is survived by his wife, four sons and five daughters, Charles Edwin, David Lee, Eugene, and Jack; Mamye Elizabeth, Nelda Frances, Martha Juanita, Mary Sue, and Patsy Charlene. He also has two sisters, Mrs. Paul Bedingfield of Lorenzo, and another living in El Paso.

The funeral was held Monday at 4 o'clock from the Christian Church at Ralls, the service being conducted by Rev. Travis of the Baptist Church, assisted by the Christian pastor.

The active pallbearers were: T. I. Robinson, B. M. Crabtree, H. E. Clingan, Bert Eads, J. L. Smallwood, and Earl Bartlett; while the honorary pallbearers named were Henry Cunningham, Chas. Mikeal, John Holland, Guy Lowry, and Pat Murphy. Both groups were from Levelland and members of the Legion Post.

Flower girls--Misses Sibal Fite, Frances Patterson, Mary Neil Patterson, Hazel Newton, Doris Parker, Erlene Lane, Ruby Smith, and Imogene Smith, all of whom live in this community.

A large concourse of friends formed a procession from this place to Ralls where he was laid to rest under the direction of the Davis-Mason Company of this place.

Jack Hinson, Reenlisted Veteran, Dies Wednesday As .22 Bullet Pierces Head

A .22 rifle bullet through the head proved fatal Wednesday [24 APR 1946] to Pfc. Jack Hinson, 19-year-old soldier on re-enlistment furlough. Veteran of overseas service in Europe, Hinson was due to report to Fort Sam Houston today.

Verdict of Justice of the Peace A. F. Odell, who made the investigations, will await arrival today [28 APR 1946] of army officials from the Clovis, N. M. army air field. Indications, Odell said today, point to accidental death.

The young soldier was dead when he was found near a granary, 250 yards from the Hinson family's farm home, five miles east of Levelland, just before noon, Wednesday. A fourteen-year-old niece* and her three-year-old brother [and Patsy and Jack's nephew, Charles Edwin, Jr., who was about two and a half at the time] were the first to reach him, the investigator reported.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete pending army investigations and word from a navy brother.

The services will be held at the First Methodist Church here, with burial in the Ralls cemetery. The soldier was born at Ralls, and his father, a veteran of World War I, was buried there in 1939.

He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Charlie Hinson, and eight brothers and sisters. His three brothers are Charles Edwin and David Lee Hinson, Levelland, and Eugene of the U. S. Navy now in the Pacific. The five sisters are Nelda Frances, Martha Juanita, Mary Sue and Patsy Charlene, Levelland, and Mrs. Bob Peden, Albuquerque, N. M.

Private Hinson re-enlisted in the airborne infantry two months ago, and his 60-day furlough was due to be up Sunday. An extension because of a foot injury suffered by his mother was granted by Fort Sam Houston officials.

His previous service record listed 23 months of duty, 11 months of which was in the European Theater of operations. He served with artillery units of the Ninth and First armies.

Hinson left the farmhouse earlier Wednesday going to the granary to shoot rats with his .22 rifle. He was accompanied by his three-year-old nephew.

The two were evidently running around the granary, Odell said, when Hinson tripped over truck sideboards. The .22 bullet went into his right temple and lodged just behind his left ear.

An ex-student of Levelland high school, Hinson was born in Ralls on June 15, 1926. The family moved to Levelland when he was eight years old.

----------

*It was Jack's youngest sister, Patsy Charlene, who was seven at the time. [The information on who found Jack was verified with Patsy Charlene Hinson Roth 27 April 1999.]

Three in State Lose Lives in Drownings

[Robert Peden]

Two Texas brothers and a 19-year-old Oklahoma City youth drowned Sunday as tragedy marked the Labor Day Weekend.

Robert Peden, 19, of 5301 NW 45, drowned about 2:30 p.m. on Lake Altus-Lugert, while swimming near the floating docks on the northwest side of the dam. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert A. Peden, who were at the scene of the mishap.

Trooper Ray Griffin said Kenneth McConnel, lake patrolman, pulled Peden's body from about eight feet of water about an hour after he went down.

The lake is in southwest Oklahoma.

The Texas men drowned in the Cimarron River about 13 miles southwest of Stillwater and about four miles west of Perkins. The mishap occurred in an old fishing hole.

The brothers, Bobby Sheppard, 26, and Horace Sheppard, 21, were on an outing at the river with their wives, the highway patrol reported.

Members of the family said Horace Sheppard waded into the river to locate an underwater ledge. He stepped off the ledge and vanished. Bobby Sheppard drowned trying to rescue his brother.

The two, natives of Plainview, Texas, moved to Stillwater a month ago, They were employed by a cementing company.

The body of Bobby Sheppard was recovered late Sunday by Highway Patrolman Sid Berry, but Horace's body was still missing.
