(Taken from the Daily Corinthian)
Submitted by George Hyneman
This morning at 3:00 the long and useful life of B.F. Hyneman, familiarly
known throughout this entire section as "Uncle Frank" came to an end. He
reached the terminus of the road that has been fraught with historic
milestones from October 12, 1837 till the present date. With only a half
dozen years short of a century he passed into eternity, his life having been
filled with action until his physical strength forbade, and then his mind
and interest kept up the contact with the progress of his community and the
outside world in a remarkable way. It had been ten or twelve years since he
had engaged in any activities, and two years ago on the 24th of this month
he suffered a stroke of paralysis that threatened his life for several days.
Recovering from this in a way he continued his interest in matters generally
but he was never strong thereafter. He had been a member of the Christian
church for more than two generations, had seen this country develop from
almost a wilderness to its present state of progress. He was the son of
David and Rebecca Hyneman whose birth places were Ireland and Scotland
respectively. He was born in this county when it was Tishomingo county and
will be buried within a mile of where he first saw light. During his early
days Farmington was the leading village of this section and there was no
Corinth at that time. Jacinto was the county seat for the county. He was a
confederate veteran and fought with Price and Van Dorn and through the whole
four years of conflict, in the heart of many engagements, and never received
as much as a scratch that was in the nature of a wound from the enemy.
Following the war he again returned to his native health and turned his
attention, like many others, to a rehabilitation of the South he loved and
for which he had fought so valiantly. In many ways he was a most remarkable
man, and his memory was such that in recounting his experiences and
observations of the earlier days of this territory he was intensely
interesting. He is survived by his widow Mrs. Julia Hyneman, three
daughters; Mrs. May Brice, Mrs. Lillie Dickerson, and Miss Pearl Hyneman,
and two sons; J.H. Hyneman and Hal Hyneman. They are all near Corinth with
the exception of Hal Hyneman, whose home is at Crawfordsville, Arkansas. The
burial will be at Farmington cemetery Thursday afternoon at 2:00. McPeters
will direct the funeral.

(Copied from his obituary given to the Alcorn Co. Gen. Society by Steve
Elijah Knight was born and reared in McNairy Co., TN, and in 1861, when the
call for volunteers was made, he was one of the first to offer his body and
life as a target for the enemy. He served under Major Sharp, of Corinth, for
a long time and then under others during that great struggle of the sixties.
Major Sharp told the writer recently that Elijah was the first to open fire
on the enemy in the Corinth engagement, and on the 29th of May, 1906, death
came and called for its victim, the old soldier. Just after the close of the
war he joined the M.E. Church and settled 25 years ago, near Acton, TN,
where he lived, and his neighbors were proud of him. He was a good
companion, a loving father and loyal to his country.
