Tecumseh Sherman Hind

The Western Star, April 19, 1907.


Tecumseh Sherman Hind, youngest son of Mrs. Emma Hind, died at 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday, April 6, 1907, aged 8 years, 8 months and 20 days. His illness, which was of 6 weeks duration (a part of the time thought to be scarlet fever) was borne with patience and without scarcely a murmur.

Teck, as he was familiarly called, was a bright, intellectual child, with much promise for the future. He was taken sick on the same day that his father, D. W. Hind, now deceased, took sick, but he rallied and was able to attend his father's funeral a week later, but on the following day he took worse and his mother was talking to him of his papa's death and asked him if he realized that his papa was gone from earth forever. He answer was, "Yes, mama, but we'll see him up there, " and pointed heavenward. This remark remains very sacred and impressive to his mother, brothers and sisters.

He leaves a devoted mother, sisters Jeanie and Emma and brothers Harold and Allen, and other relatives and friends who now mourn his untimely death. Funeral services were conducted in the M. E. church at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, after which the body was laid to rest in the Protection cemetery.

Mrs. Carter of Elyria, Ohio, mother of D. W. Hind, deceased, arrived on Wednesday to visit with the Hind family.

Delville W. Hind, father of Tecumseh Sherman Hind. Emma Hind was his second wife.

John Harold Hind, half-brother of Tecumseh Sherman Hind.

Marian Hind, half-sister of Tecumseh Sherman Hind.
