C. H. HARPOLE PASSES AWAY EARLY TODAY

Funeral Services To Be Held At Federated Church On Sunday Afternoon

Charles Henry Harpole was born in Boonville, Indiana December 15, 1863. He passed away at his home in Bayard early Thursday morning December 11.
Mr. Harpole moved with his parents from Boonville, Indiana to Independence, Kansas at the age of 16 years, where they resided a short time, then moving to Southwestern Missouri where he remained with his parents until he was of age, helping his father develop a new farm. He came to Nebraska at the age of 26 years and has been a continual resident of this state since, having lived at Naponee, Holdrege, Ravenna, Alliance and Brideport prior to his coming to Bayard in 1900. Being one of the earliest residents of Bayard and having initiative and marked gift for getting things organized he set up in business and became an outstanding individual in the community and church life. His activities included leadership in the town board, school board, Red Cross, grand jury service, cemetery association in its initial plotting, and development through the years. From his early membership in the Methodist church in 1911 he served actively, until failing health, on the trustee board, where he remained as a senior member until his death.
He was a man of strong convictions and steadfast faith in the right, even when the right seemed unpopular. He was one of those pioneer men who was sturdy in character and stalwart and upright in his business dealings with his fellowmen. They knew where he stood and what he stood for.
For several years Mr. Harpole had been in failing health and the last year was spent more or less in bed. His good wife cared for him painstakingly and prolonged his life in peace and patience.
His father and mother had long since passed on. He had four brothers and four sisters all of whom have passed on save only Morris Harpole, a brother living in Opolis, Kansas. Mr. Charles Harpole had married Elnette Mingus in 1893, she having passed away in 1914. He was united in marriage to Miss Emma Devault in 1915 and she survives him with a son, George, living in Bayard. A foster son whom Mr. Harpole had taken at five years of age to raise, Montgomery Fullerton, also survives, besides other relatives and many friends.
His dying prayer was God's protection upon his family who survive.
The body will lie in state at the home Sunday morning from 10:00 a. m. until the service at the Federated church at 2:00 p. m. The body will not be reviewed at the church services.
