Uncle Tine Wood Passes Away at His Home Here
After a lingering illness of several weeks, Mr Vollen Tine Wood,
one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens, died at his home
in the east part of town last Sunday night, March 17, at 9;30 o'clock.
His death was not unexpected, as infirmities of advanced age had made
heavy inroads on his health the past few years and lately it became
apparent that he could hold out but a short time. He was 83 years of
age.
Mr Wood was born in north Missouri, but came to Arkansas when
ten years of age, living in the northwest part of this state two or
three years, after which he moved to Sharp County, where he resided till
after the Civil War. He was married to Miss Henryetta Clinton, who
survives him. To this union were born nine children. Two sons and four
daughters survive, as follows; Jas H. Wood, of Calico Rock, Truman Wood
of near Newport; Mrs Naomi Jones and Mrs Laura Jones of Calico Rock, Mrs
Pheoby Franks of Bexar and Mrs Josie Boles of Colorado. Mr and Mrs Wood
moved from Sharp County to Union Fulton County, about 53 years ago,
residing on their farm in that vicinity until three years ago, when they
moved to Calico Rock.
"Uncle Tine" was an ex-Confederate veteran, serving with
distinction through the greater part of tht trying period. After his
enlistment in Sharp County he went with his command into Missouri where
he served until the battle of Big Blue, where he received a wound in the
right leg that incapacitated him for further activity during the war. He
was taken a prisoner at Big Blue, and with scores of others captured
Confederates was taken by boat via, St. Louis to Memphis, being held at
Memphis till the close of the war, when he returned home. His memory was
a storehouse of events surrounding the stirring war times and even in
his last days sought diversion by reveling in reminiscences of those
days.
Uncle Tine was a devout Christian, professing religion and
joining the Missionary Baptist Church at the age of 20. He lived a
faithful and consistent Christian life, being loved and esteemed by all
who knew him, for his fidelity to his family, his friends and neighbors
and his sanction of the principles that make a better citizenship. He
also was a member of the Odd Fellows and the Blue Lodge and royal Arch
Chapter of the Masonic Lodge.
Burial took place at the cemetery at Union Monday afternoon at
3:30 o'clock, Eld. David A. Hively delivering the funeral sermon, after
which the Masons too charge of the services and administered the burial
rites. A large crowd of relatives and friends were present to pay their
respect to the deceased.
