Class of 1827 – EDWARD WILLIAM HOOK was born in Castine, Me., 1 May, 1807, son of Josiah and Sarah (Brown) Hook. His father was United States collector of that port. Entered college in 1823, and at once became distinguished for his manly independent character and attractive address. He conciliated all who knew him. Sincerely modest himself, he yet allowed no one to dictate to him, and so was an acknowledged leader. His rank was decidedly high, and placed him in the Phi Beta Kappa Society. His Commencement part in 1827 was a forensic disputation on the subject, “Whether a state have a right to accede from the Union.” He studied medicine in Boston, and received the degree of M.D. in 1832. His life subsequently led him to various places in the west and south-west, where he practiced his profession. At one time he was a resident in Adrian, Mich.; at another in Liverpool, Texas. In 1845 he was at Fort Adams, Miss.; subsequently he was at Hall’s Bayou, Texas; but he finally resided at Algiers, near New Orleans, La., where he died, 24 May, 1871, after an illness of three months, of dropsy and congestion of the liver. He married Phebe Perkins Whitby, of Lincolnville, Me., 23 May, 1843, and left one daughter, Harriet Ruth, born 6 January, 1845, and one son, Edmund Whitby, born 10 January, 1854.

Peter Rupp Dies of Pneumonia

Mr. Peter Rupp’s death had been reported from time to time throughout the week, principally from the fact that he was a very prominent business man in Algiers, he being widely known from one end of the town to the other. But when the authentic news finally came, there was a widespread expressions of awe and sympathy for this man who was taken so young in life by the grim reaper.

            His death occurred Friday afternoon at 2:20 o’clock in the Naval Hospital in the Algiers Naval Yard. His funeral took place Saturday afternoon from the Naval Hospital within twenty-four hours of his death as are the requirements of the Naval Authorities and the Board of Health. His body was draped in the American Flag and sealed in a metallic casket, thus he died for his country in the service, as First Class Hospital Apprentice.

            Peter Rupp made application for enlistment in the Navy immediately after the United States had entered the World War; but, on account of his light weight, he was rejected. Later on, he was successful in his efforts to meet the required weight and was finally accepted and sent to the Naval Hospital.

            Peter Rupp, who was the son of the late Elizabeth Crane and John Rupp, was born on August 22, 1886. He received his early education in our public schools. He was a graduate of the Soule College and at the age of twenty-one years, he became a Graduate Pharmacist and it was at this time that he opened up his drug business at the corner of Bermuda and Eliza Sts. The growth of Peter Rupp’s drug business was like magic. It grew to such proportion that from time to time, he was compelled t put on additional help to take care of his increasing business.

            As a business man, he had the confidence of his customers. As a professional man, he had the confidence of the physicians of this city. Shortly after his connections with the Naval Station, he was placed in charge of several classes where he taught Pharmacy daily to those in his department under his charge.

            Mr. Rupp was a member of the State Board of Pharmacy, having been appointed to the position by Mayor Behrman a few years ago, and while serving on the board, he was elected as one of the examiners in practical Pharmacy and during the four years that he held this position, he examined many applicants for certificates in this branch of the profession.

            Peter Rupp was a member of the Elks, the Druids and several other minor organizations.

            His is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Esther Manent and Mrs. John Landry, and other relatives.

            In accordance with the rulings of the Board of Health, the funeral services were private. They were conducted at the grave by Rev. Father Petiti. The pallbearers were comrades from the Naval Station.

            An honor guard followed in line. At the grave a salute was fired and taps were sounded by the bugler.

            Interment was in St. Bartholomew Cemetery.

Bayou Sara, LA

 The death of L. A. .Winn of Wilhelm took place about noon, Tuesday, Dec. 7. Mr. Winn was ill for ten days or more from acute heart trouble. This malady combined with a general decline in strength for the past five months causing him much suffering. An obituary appears in another column.

 In Memory Of L. A. Winn

Again the somber Angel of Death has visited our community. This time he claimed as his own, our popular and beloved citizen, Louie A. Winn.

            Though born in New Orleans, he was reared in Tunica, and spent most of his life here. He left a wife, two little girls, aged thirteen months and seven years, respectively, four brothers, one sister, and a wide circle of friends to mourn his departure. Possessing a kind, patient, gentle disposition, and a tender, sympathetic nature, ever willing to share the griefs and burdens of others, he wound himself about the hearts of all who knew him. It has been said of him, that no one ever heard one word spoken to his discredit. Not only did his loved ones and friends grieve at losing him, but the writer heard different persons comment on the fact that even the colored population bowed their heads in sorrow when they learned that he had passed away.

            It seems so hard that his spirit could not linger in its mortal frame and mingle with us longer, but God knows what is best, and beyond the mists and gloom of the present grief that fills the hearts of those who loved him so well, it will yet be seen that God in His love has even ordered this sad event for some unforeseen and eternal good. As his spirit was nearing the shores of eternity, he said this: “Looking over my past life, I don’t remember any real wicked thing I have ever done.” What a legacy to leave behind! He confessed a love for his Savior, and said he was praying, and trusting in God’s grace and love. By this we feel assured that his spirit is with his Maker, God.

            To his grief-stricken wife, to whom he beckoned to go with him, as he was leaving her,, we extend our heartfelt sympathy, and to her we would say, Let that beckoning hand draw you on to that fairer land, and one day, tho’ he cannot come to you, you can go to him, and you two can be united, never again to part.
