      Deceased Pioneer Was Firm Believer in Law and Order

      Charles D. Oakes, pioneer resident of Choctaw county who died January 14 at his home near Ervin, southeast of here, at the age of 83, was firm believer in law and order, according to those who were intimately acquainted with him. While this section was still almost a wilderness, he made many trips on horse back, with his old-time cross back saddle pockets, to attend federal court at Fort Smith.

      ?He possessed many, if not all, of the qualities that make a good man,? it was declared. ?He had rather give than receive, never turned away the hungry, was kind hearted and always ready to lend a helping hand. He believed in God, professed his belief and hope of an Eternal Home.?

      Mr. Oakes passed away peacefully, without a struggle. Funeral services were conducted by the Reverend Mr. Hawley, Presbyterian minister, at the family home Thursday evening at 2 o?clock.

      Charles D. Oakes was born April 15, 1841. He served four years in the Confederate army during the Civil war. He was married in 1874 to Miss Judith Belvin and settled on the old homestead where he remained until the end came. Four of ten children born to that union are living. In 1889 he was married to Miss Margaret Phillips. Eight of eleven children born to that union are living. He was the father of 21 children, of whom 12 survive. He had 39 living grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

      Surviving Mr. Oakes are five brothers and two sisters. They are: T. E., G. W., S. L., L. W., and J. E. ?Dock? Oakes, Mrs. J. B. Jeter and Mrs. T. D. Hibben, the youngest, who is now 62 years old.

      Mr. Oakes? father died at the age of 92 and his mother at the age of 74.---Hugo News.
