Died, June 20th, 1897 at 6 a.m., Mrs. Dollie Heaslet, aged 25 years, 9 months and 20 days. She was converted and joined the M.E. Church, South at Decatur, Ark. in the fall of 1886. In the early days of her childhood her father, Hardy Jones, moved to the vicinity of Bentonville, Ark. and a few years later to Decatur, Ark. In the spring of 1893 she with her father, brothers and sisters moved to Oklahoma. In 1895 she came back to Arkansas and married Wm. P. Heaslet. She was stricken with a fever and for a few weary days and nights only it scorched her fair brow and parched her sweet lips when at last the Angel of Death came to her relief. She was followed to her last resting place at Bethel cemetery by her heartbroken husband, father and kindred and a large concourse of sorrowing friends. The loss of such a wife, daughter, sister and friend can be realized only when it becomes a reality. Affectionately inscribed by a friend and kinsman. J.W.B.

WILLIAMS, S. Newt - {from Gravette} S.N. Williams, better known as "Uncle Newt," is dead. He had been sick several days from infirmities and after a struggle, first seeming to improve then to get worse, he passed away Friday Dec. 6th at the age of 71 years. Mr. Williams was born near Bentonville March 27th, 1836, being the oldest son of Ambrose Williams, and of a family of 22 children. His father, above mentioned, built the first log cabin on the site where Bentonville now stands, and also was among the first county and circuit clerks of Benton county. Uncle Newt has lived for forty years on the Spavinaw farm where he died and with the exception of six years in Texas and two years in Missouri has spent his life in Benton county. He formerly owned Gravette townsite, before the town was started. He served with the boys in gray in the 2nd Cherokee Regiment under Col. Stand Watie, and saw Price's army retreat. He married three times and leaves a wife and little girl, besides several grown children by former marriages, some of whom were with him when death came. Uncle Newt will long be remembered as a good, honest citizen but another landmark of the past has gone. He was a consistent church member and an Odd Fellow holding membership with a Centerton lodge, which took part in laying the body to rest Saturday afternoon at Bethel cemetery.
