Hinton, William Riley
William Hinton, Dead
Another good citizen gone from us.
William Hinton died at his home near Wingate in this, Perry coun­ty, and was buried at the family graveyard on Thanksgiving day.
Mr. Hinton was in his 81s' year, having been born April 1. 1837. His character was of that sterling stamp that knew no pre­tension or wavering. His sincer­ity was so marked in his conduct that he could be regarded as some what abrupt in his manner of comment; but he had the rarely seen redeeming trait that you could always learn exactly where he stood on any question at any time. Those who have known him for all their lives never ques­tioned his integrity of life and purpose, and pity it is that we have so few such men nowadays.
He was a member of the Bap­tist church and a Mason as well. He was buried by the Masons, Rev. J. N. McMillan having con­ducted the exercises at the grave.
He left a family surviving him consisting of two sons and two or three daughters. He was born, lived and died in his immediate community, and was buried with in a few hundred yards of where he was born.

McDonald, George Prentiss Jr
George Prentiss McDonald, Jr. was born in Jones County, Mississippi, May 29,1898, the only child of Mr. and Mrs. B. P. McDonald. ln 1903 he moved with his parents to Collins. He entered the Collins Graded School and in 1915 graduated from the High School of that town with the highest honors of his class. The following year he entered the Mississippi A. and M. College and spent two sessions as a student in the school of engineering. On August 5, 1917, he was mustered into the United States army service as a member of the Curtis Field Artillery and received his training at Camp Beauregard, Louisiana.
On July 15, 1918, he landed in France with the American Expeditionary Forces, and was assigned to Battery B, 320th Field Artillery, in which battery he served until his death.
After three weeks of training in France, George accompanied his battery to the front, getting into action near Toul. Very shortly his battery was moved up to the St. Mihiel Sector; where they went through twelve days of gruelling offensive. After only a few days of rest Battery B was ordered to proceed to the Argonne Forest area.
Accordingly, on October 15, 1918, the battery began its advance beyond the little town of Fleville and took its position on one of the neighboring hills. As the last caisson was rumbling along in the outskirts of the village, with its load of American shells, a German shell came over and landed in the road with all its destructive power, a fragment of it claiming the life of Prentiss McDonald, Jr. Paying the price on the field of honor, this hero passed out smiling, to meet his God.
The following morning he was buried just back of the town of Fleville, France, his chaplain performing the simple ceremony that marked the last tribute to a soldier dead.
George was the sole pride of his venerable father's life, his mother dying when he was in his early teens. The seriousness of his purpose, his generous spirit of friendship, and the purity of his life are prominent traits that his numerous friends will always remember.
Only his father, Mr. G. P. McDonald, of Collins, Mississippi, survives him, but with this father the A. and M. College and his numerous friends are left to mourn the loss of this noble young man.

He was born, lived and died in his immediate community, and was buried with in a few hundred yards of where he was born. After all, the men who live and die near thier childhood home are the metal that holds the world together. No rambler was ever worth to mankind what such men as Mr. Hinton was worth. No hasty discontent was his; no foolish ambition to heed the big tales of splendor of other sections, but satisfied with home, his community, his family and his neighbors, he lived out a long and useful life, there by setting us a noble example of the content that comes of being willing to accept life as it comes in its vicissitudes, with no foolish dream of achieving something by accident or chance. He is gone, but his life with its examples will linger with us and let us hope for our good.

Mills, Patton Brown
Patton Brown Mills (Pat) Aug. 15, 1924 - Apr. 16, 2006 We lost one of the "Greatest Generation" on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2006, when Patton Brown Mills passed on at his home in Bakersfield, California, at the age of 81.
Services with be held at 2:00 p.m., Friday, April 21, 2006, at Mish Funeral Home, 120 Minner Avenue in Oildale.
Pat was born in New Augusta, Mississippi on August 15, 1924, and soon after moved with his family to Durant, Oklahoma where he was raised. Pat's father Richard Mills and mother Frances met while attending the University of Southern Mississippi, where his mother was the first woman to enroll and graduate. His father would go on to earn his law degree from the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) and became a prominent District Attorney and later a Judge in Oklahoma.
Pat volunteered for the United States Navy soon after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 and served three and a half years aboard the Destroyer Escort ship the USS Hammann. Pat was one of the "young ones" during the war, turning 21 years old on the day World War II officially ended on August 15, 1945. After the war, Pat returned to Durant and earned his Bachelor's degree from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. After graduation, Pat worked in the business office of Convair, now known as Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co. in Fort Worth, Texas where their primary project at the time was to build the largest war plane of any kind, the B- 36 bomber. Pat also enlisted in the Navy Reserve at that time, and when the Korean War conflict started to develop, he was called up and served another one and a half years in Korea. After the Korean conflict, Pat began what would be a forty-five year career as an elementary and middle school teacher. Pat taught for five years in the Dallas / Fort Worth, Texas area before moving to Kern County in 1958. He taught 7th and 8th grade mathematics, ceramics, and typing at Thomas Jefferson School in Wasco, California for thirty years, and was a substitute teacher throughout the Bakersfield city schools for another ten years.
Pat was very artistic, and while experimenting with the kilns used for ceramics around 1964, he developed techniques to stretch and craft bottles into art forms. "Stretching" bottles started out as a hobby, but soon turned into a nice business he operated for the next twenty years, with stores up and down the California Coast selling Pat's stretched bottles. Pat lived a great life and a full one, enjoying very good health until just recently. He was proud of his service in the United States Navy and in recent years attended World War II Navy Veteran reunions. He traveled all over the world while in the Navy, traveled extensively throughout the United States, and he golfed every day he could.
He was preceded in death by his father, mother, and sister, Frances Brown. He is survived by his son, John and his wife, Kelly; his two cherished granddaughters; his sister, Dorcas Parker of Tulsa, Oklahoma, many nieces and nephews throughout Oklahoma and California, and many friends. We will all miss him, but it truly was his time.
