FUNERAL  SERVICES  SUNDAY  AFTERNOON
FOR  DR.  HAYMOND
-------
          Dr. Raymond G. Earl Haymond, one of Shelby county's most distinguished citizens, ended his own life yesterday.  A retired physician, Dr. Haymond was a native of Shelby county but had spent the major part of his life in Louisville.  He was found dead at his home north of Waldron at 9:30 a.m. Friday morning by a niece,  Juanita Haymond.  According to Dr. C. J. Price, county coroner, he had shot himself with a .38 caliber revolver.  The coroner said that the muzzle of the weapon had been placed under his chin, with the bullet coursing upward into his head.  Dr. Haymond's action in taking his own life was attributed to ill health.  He had been in poor health since early in 1943, and his condition had been described as serious for the past three weeks.  Suffering from cardiac asthma, Dr. Haymond referred to his illness in a note which also stated that "I guess this is the best way." The 69 year old physician had been very active in many civic programs over the county since his retirement 10 years ago.  He had maintained an active membership in a large number of organizations.  Among other civic affiliations, he had given a great deal of time and support to Boy Scouting activities in the county and had been chairman of the Camp Flat Rock Scout program.  During the late war, he held the chairmanship of the county war price and rationing board for an extended period, and had held membership on several price control panels.  Early in life he became a member of the Waldron Methodist Church.  He served as a medical corps captain in the First World War.  Dr. Haymond was a member of the Waldron Order of Eastern Star, Scottish Rite order at Louisville, Kosair Shrine temple at Louisville, Shelbyville Victory Post No. 70, American Legion, the Elks Lodge at Louisville, the S.A.E. social fraternity and Pi Mu legal fraternity.  He was one of the organizers of the Waldron Community Club.  Born in Waldron February 4, 1878, Dr. Haymond was the son of  James W. & Celeste Adeline (Crisler) Haymond.  In 1897, he was married to  Alma Watts,  in Shelby county.  Two children were born to the union, and one of them,  Mrs. Dott Copeland,  of Mooresville, survives.  Another daughter,  Justine LaVerne,  died in infancy.  His wife preceded him in death in March 1903.  Other survivors are two grandchildren,  Patricia and Jimmy Copeland,  a brother,  Fred Haymond, of Indianapolis; a sister,  Mrs. Henry Meloy, of Shelbyville, and several nieces and nephews.  Three brothers and four sisters preceded him.  A graduate of the Waldron High school, Dr. Haymond was privately tutored before entering the University of Louisville medical school, from which he graduated in 1909.  He became associated with the Pope hospital at Louisville and later became the institution's head and owner.  He operated the hospital until 1937, when he retired and returned to his home at Waldron.  Funeral services will be conducted Sunday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock in the Charles M. Ewing mortuary.  Officiating at the rites will be the Rev. Fred Young, of Franklin, assisted bv the Rev. Vernon Lallement, of Stockwell.  Burial will be made in the Ogden cemetery, South of Waldron.  Friends may call at the funeral home after 7:00 p.m. today.

FUNERAL  TUESDAY
FOR  JOSEPH  A. HAYMOND
----------
Services  To  Be  Held  At  Residence – 
Was  Most  Prominent  Of  Waldron  Citizens
----------
          Funeral services for Joseph Alfred Haymond, banker and merchant at Waldron, whose death, occurring in the Methodist hospital at Indianapolis at 3:30 o’clock Saturday afternoon, was mentioned in the Democrat of Saturday evening, will be held at his residence at 1:30 o’clock Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. Fred Young and the Rev. J. W. Eller, pastor of the Baptist and M.E. churches at Waldron, officiating.  Burial will be made in Forest Hill cemetery.
Mr. Haymond’s body was brought to his home Sunday morning, after it had been prepared by Stewart & Fix, undertakers of this city, who were called to the hospital Saturday evening.
          Mr. Haymond’s death resulted from uremic poisoning.  He had been suffering from bladder trouble for some time and had undergone an operation about two weeks ago. He had been taken to the hospital on October 27.  He was unconscious for nearly a week before his death.
          Mr. Haymond was 78 years old, having been born in Middletown, Shelby county, July 10, 1839.  He was the son of  John and  Margaret (Cummins) Haymond, who were among the most prominent of the pioneer couples of the southeastern part of Shelby county.
          After obtaining a meager education, Mr. Haymond became a clerk in a store at the age of fourteen years.  He had a natural bend for mercantile pursuits and remained actively in business the rest of his life.  As time went by he became one of the most successful of the businessmen of the county and a man of great prominence in his community, and all over the county.  He was especially active in democratic politics and served as trustee of Liberty township a number of terms and held other minor offices.  He was recognized on all hands as one of the builders of Waldron, which is second to no town of its size in Indiana for progressiveness.  In 1904 Mr. Haymond established a private bank and it has always been a sound and growing institution, managed exclusively by Mr. Haymond and members of his family.
          Mr. Haymond was a veteran of the civil war, having served for a shot time as a member of the Seventy-sixth Regiment, Indiana Volunteer Infantry.  The late Mayor John W. Vannoy, of this city, was a member of the same company.
          On May 27, 1879, Mr. Haymond married  Miss India Cotton, daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Thomas A. Cotton, and she survives him with their two sons,  Frank H. and  Earl J., both of Waldron.  He also leaves a sister,  Miss Cynthia J. Haymond, who made her home with him.
          Mr. Haymond was one of the wealthiest and also one of the most generous men of the county, and his death is a distinct loss to Waldron and community.  He has been especially active in supporting the Baptist and Methodist churches at Waldron and those taking the lead in any big endeavor knew that they could count on the support of Mr. Haymond.  He was held in highest esteem by all who knew him and many will be the regret that he has been called from a world in which he had always done nobly his part.

Mr. Haymond's death was caused by injuries which he received Tuesday evening, when struck by an east bound Indianapolis & Cincinnati traction car, at the Main street crossing in Waldron.  The car struck Mr. Haymond a glancing blow as he jumped from the track in an effort to escape being hit. Five of his ribs on the left side of his body were fractured and internal injuries were received.  Mr. Haymond was one of the most prominent of the older citizens of the county. He was a descendant of one of the first families to settle in this part of the state. All of his life had been spent in and about Waldron and in the history of the place he was well versed. He wrote a number of articles on various phases of the history of the county and also compiled a short volume on "Pioneer Life in Shelby County." He was always a close student of affairs and took a great interest until the last in the happenings of the world about him. During his life he had been a teacher, a soldier, a farmer and a merchant.

In 1861, at the age of twenty-two years, he gave up his school and enlisted in the Union army, to fight for his country.  Mr. Haymond and a friend, John Raynes, were the first from the Waldron country to enlist.  They signed for a period of three years. Mr. Haymond was assigned to Co. E, of the Eighteenth Indiana Infantry. For good conduct he was promoted to the rank of first lieutenant. He was detailed and was acting adjutant of his regiment, with the rank of captain. He served on the staff of General H.D. Washburn during the seige of Vicksburg and throughout the campaigns which were conducted in the Southwest.  At the close of the war he returned to the vicinity of Waldron and resumed teaching.  He taught only for a short time, until he was married to Ann E. Grubb, on February 26, 1865.  After his marriage he moved to a farm where he lived until his wife died two years later.  Later he ran a general mercantile business in Waldron.
