David M. Hughart

Through the kindness of Frank L. Longshore, The Tribune received notice of the death of a former well-known fellow townsman, David M. Hughart, at his home in the Hughart settlement. No particulars accompanied the announcement further than the information that the funeral would be held at the St. Clair school house Wednesday at 11 o'clock.

Members of Chesterton Masonic Lodge were at once notified, as Mr. Hughart was a member of that body. Everywhere here the news was received with regret, as there were few men who were more highly respected and beloved than David M. Hughart. He was one of nature's noblemen, and once a friend always a friend. He was born in Greenbrier County, Virginia, April 3, 1835, and was one of eight children born to David and Nancy Hughart. His father came to Liberty township in 1835, and settled, just after David was born. He was married to Emily Bull in 1857, and this union was blessed with six children. He entered the Thirty-third Indiana Regiment during the war, and was stationed in the South eleven months. Some years ago he conducted a meat market in Porter, and continued in that business until he returned to the farm. He was a prominent mason, a faithful worker for the public good, and was one of the main stays of the Porter County Agricultural Society for years. His death will be generally mourned throughout Porter County.
