"In Loving Memory Of Nicholas Barksdale Hall---Death, no matter how
long
expected, always comes as a shock. Stricken indeed were the hearts of
loved
ones when it was whispered that Nicholas Barksdale Hall was dead.
Sorrow and
gloom fell upon all when it was known that Nick Hall had passed into
the
Great Beyond; that his place was empty and would know him no more. An
overwhelming sense of distinct loss came upon all, for he was a devoted
husband, a loving father and was always most happy when he was in the
presence of his family.

He was a man held in deep affection by all classes of people. His death
came
after a long illness---a great trial of affliction during which time he
never murmured or complained, but bore intense pain and suffering
patiently,
even cheerfully. He fully realized the seriousness of his condition and
bore
it with calmness and cheerfulness that was remarkable.

His genial manner, his sunny disposition and amiable qualities of heart
and
mind made him beloved by all who knew him. His honorable, upright life,
his
splendid manhood, his integrity, his sense of justice and mercy to all,
his
tolerance of the tolerant, his unselfish spirit and his strict
adherence to
the Golden Rule made him a lovable man. He was generous to a fault,
always
ready to befriend the helpless, the poor, the widow and the orphan. No
one
ever asked his aid in vain.

His influence for good in his community has been a constant benediction
and
will be felt in the long years to come. "Though dead, yet he speaketh."
He
was a Christian, a member of the Methodist Church from early life. He
was
loyal to his church. But his house was always a home for every true
minister
of the Word. He was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. His faith was
simple and trustful as a child. He loved nature and the great work of
God.

He was laid to rest on July 4, 1943, in the Vonore Cemetery, where many
of
his loved ones lie. Rev. H.B. Greene conducted the funeral services."
