He was married to Miss Naomi GAILEY September 9, 1880 at Bowling Green, Missouri. To this union were born eight boys and five girls. Four sons and two daughters passed away in infancy and one son lived until the age of seventeen.

He was affiliated with the Methodist Episcopal Church most of his early life, and recently united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, south of Hammon and was baptized by Reverend F. M. NOWLIN while in the hospital at Elk City.

He lived a devoted life and one spent in service to others.

He and his wife helped rear, educate and finance twenty eight children other than their own, among whom were the four small brothers given to them at their mother’s death, and three older brothers and sisters. He was a real father to them and did all within his ability to do for their happiness and success.

Doctors, nurses and kind friends did all that medical aid and loving hands could do.

He was brought from Tisdal Hospital to the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. B. HIBLER, two weeks before he passed away. He had been in poor health for some time and had been considered serious for a number of weeks.

He felt perfectly at east and willing to leave this world of suffering and trouble, but fought courageously to the end because of the desire of his many friends who hoped for his recovery.

He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife, Mrs. Naomi MOAD, four sons, A. G. MOAD and J. S. MOAD, of Herring, J. D. MOAD of Sayre and C. R. MOAD of Hammon; three daughters, Mrs. W. B. LESLIE of Leedey, Mrs. H. W. MITCHELL and Mrs. W. B. HIBLER of Hammon, three brothers, Reverend C. S. MOAD of Cisco, Texas, A. G. MOAD of Guthrie and W. G. MOAD of Hammon; two sisters, Mrs. Clara NORVELL of Hobart and Mrs. Amy YOUNT of Leedey. One sister Mrs. Mary PEARSON of Stratford, Oklahoma passed away a week ago but he never knew of her passing.

He also leaves twenty-eight grandchildren and one great grandchild besides a number of other relatives and a host of friends.

We are indeed very sad because of the departure of this most beloved friend. I know we should not grieve, because his life on earth was a beautiful and sincere on, and one to be long remembered by his many, many friends.


Page 99


He always appeared jovial and light-hearted, even sometimes when he knew he could not be, only through his efforts to make others. He not only had the ability to make friends, but to hold them and continue to gain their love and respect.

If kind words and loving deed lay up material for a mansion in Heaven, surely his will be one of beauty and immense size.

A beautiful life is ended on earth,

But beginning anew in the sky.

Up yonder where all is rest and peace

And his wonderful soul shall not die.


We should not mourn his passing.

We know that his suffering is o’er

And that he’s gone to meet his Maker

On that bright celestial shore.


U shall no forget when I saw him last,

Although he was suffering and weak.

He pulled me gently to him

And planted a kiss upon my cheek.


That sweet memory shall live on forever

And I wish that my life could be

As cheerful and inspiring to others

As his life has been to me.


Has was loved and admired by many

Who shall miss him, now that he’s gone

But we must not disappointment him in Heaven

He’ll be looking for us in the throng.

Services were conducted at the Hammon Methodist Church Monday at 3 P.M. by Reverend F. M. NOWLIN and assisted by Reverend J. J. MCNELY of Mountain View. The Killough-Hullum Funeral Home was in charge of the services.
