CARROLL HUNTER

The remains of Carroll Hunter, who died in a base hospital near Paris, France on Christmas day, December 25, 1918, will be shipped to Minden in the very near future. According to a telegram from Brooklyn, New York to Mrs. W.S. Hunter, the body will reach New York by February 16 coming to Minden some days later. The funeral services will be held as soon as the remains are brought to Minden, and will be interred in the family lot at the Minden Cemetery. The American Legion will have charge of the funeral services and bestow those military honors, so richly deserved by this bright young man who sacrificed all for his country. Mr. Hunter was extremely well liked and admired by Minden, this having been his boyhood home. Here he grew to splendid young manhood, a popular and energetic business man. Later he became connected with the Bottling Works located at Gibsland. He is survived by three brothers, Larry B. Hunter and Jack Hunter of Minden, and James Hunter of Washington, D.C., and two sisters, Mrs. Jess Robinson of Homer, and Miss Seleste Hunter, now a student at Baylor University, Waco, Texas, and his mother, Mrs. W.S. Hunter of Minden.
