Obituary from an unknown newspaper, provided by Carolyn Haisty:
Carroll W. Haisty
Last Friday morning a special train left McGehee for Mist, Arkansas, carrying the remains of Carroll W. Haisty accompanied by a large number of relatives, friends and acquaintances. The body was carried to Mist on the train and then carried overland by wagons to the old Mount Olive cemetery and there put away. The regular funeral service will be held later, postponed because of the sickness of Mrs. Haisty.
Mr. Haisty had an attack of appendicitis about the 20th of March and was carried by special train to the Baptist Hospital at Little Rock where he underwent an operation on the 21st. His condition grew gradually worse until he died there on the night of the 29th. He was a member of Desha Lodge, No. 779, B. of L. F. & E., and the Missouri Pacific Railroad Co. sent another special train to carry his body to its burial place, a respect which was greatly appreciated both by his relatives and friends. The large number of friends who accompanied the body from McGehee and the larger number who were waiting at the old home cemetery, bespeak the high esteem in which he was held by everyone.
Mr. and Mrs. Haisty were married on July 14, 1907. At the time of his death he was 35 years old. There remain to mourn him his wife, Mrs. Nora Haisty, six children, J. B. Haisty, 15; Erastus Haisty, 12; Martha Lou Haisty, 7; Pauline Haisty, 5; Margarette Haisty 2; and Everett Haisty, enfant. He also leaves a father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. John W. Haisty of Midway, Arkansas, and four brothers, J. N. Haisty, Pine Bluff, W. P. Haisty of Monticello, and J. Q. Haisty and V. L. Haisty of McGehee.
A short service was held at the cemetery by the Reverend C. A. Carter, B. F. Musser, and Wm. H. Berry. The greatest sympathy is extended to the bereaved who are well known and much loved people in their respective communities.
The pall bearers were members of the B. of L. F. & E., as follows: C. A. Carter, S. E. Clark, H. J. Munda, C. M. Cruce, W. H. Wagner, C. L. McGriff, C. Brown, V. L. Brown, M. T. Hickenbotham, S. Jennings, W. C. Harden, L. C. Keltner.
