No Respect at All

Among such compassionate prose as “We deeply sympathize with the family of the late James Parker on his death” and “With sadness we announce the death of the young and talented Dr. B.F. Moore, late of Whiteville,” the Bolivar (TN) Bulletin noted in its 20 April 1882 edition:

“The notorious Col. Fielding Hurst of McNairy is dead.”

Hurst passed away in northwest McNairy County, Tennessee on 3 April 1882. So far this is the only notice of his death that I have found.
