*Obituary
Rogers Democrat
Thursday, March 29, 1917

Benton county lost one of its best citizens when Uncle John W. Hegwood died very suddenly Sunday at the home of his daughter near Larue. He was 77 years old and while he has not been very strong for several years, was feeling quite as well as usual and his death was a great shock to the friends and relatives. He had lived in this county for many years and for some time lived in Rogers, returning to the country after the death of his wife several years ago, since which time he has lived with his children. He was an ex-Confederate soldier and served in Co. F, 22nd Ark. Inf. Few men stood higher in the esteem of their neighbors than did Mr. Hegwood and he was always counted as one of the useful, worthwhile men of the community. The Democrat editors have known him for twenty years and he was one of the kind whose word was as good as a bond.
