Allington T. Harkins, aged 24, died at his home in this city, Friday, December 21, 1917.
Funeral service were conducted at the home, Sunday, Dec. 23rd, by Rev. Isaac Parkin. Interment was in the Coalgate Cemetery.
The deceased was the son of Dr. and Mrs. G. W. Harkins. He was born in Coalgate, Sep 15th. 1893.
He moved with his parents to this city about 3 years ago.
About four years ago while swimming in a creek he made a dive striking his head on a rock which paralyzed his lower limbs, and since that time he had been an invalid.
It is supposed that a second stroke came and reached his heart, which soon terminated in his death. He was a young man held in high esteem by all his associates and acquaintances. He was a well informed young man, devoting all of his time to reading. He will ever be remembered for his many virtues.
His parents have the sympathy of the whole community in this their sad bereavement.
