Hulick, John – Obituary

Cove, Union County, Oregon

It becomes our painful duty to announce the death of John Hulick, an esteemed and well known citizen of Cove, which occurred about 8 o’clock Monday morning at the George Jasper place in Lower Cove, 8 miles south of here. He was driving a four horse team to a granary and had driven up to the door and stopped and had thrown on the brake.

Jas. Coles who was with him had gone into the granary and when the team stopped he looked out and told Mr. Hulick to drive closer. He noticed he was leaning forward in the seat and made no reply but thought nothing wrong and turned back into the granary. then he heard the team start and looking again saw the deceased lying were the wagon had been standing and went to his assistance but found him dead. The team went on through the gate and stopped some distance off.

Mr. Hulick was subject to fainting fits of heart failure, and it is supposed that an attack was coming on when he was seen leaning forward. He doubtless fell forward striking the doubletree and his falling started the team as the brake staid on all the time, the hind wheels having slid to where the team stopped again. An examination by the doctors showed that his neck had been broken by the fall.

Deceased was a single man and was 39 years years of age last September. He leaves to mourn his death two sisters, Mrs. John Martin of Cove and Mrs. Davis of Baker City, and a brother, Mr. James Hulick, of Medical Springs, besides a number of nieces and nephews and also a large number of friends and acquaintances in the surrounding community.

Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Hulick arrived from Medical Springs, and Mrs. Davis and her daughter Miss Ollie Davis from Baker City Tuesday morning. The deceased was the youngest son of Mrs. Eleanor Hulick who died in Baker City and was buried in the Cove cemetery last January.

The funeral services took place from the residence of Mr. and Mrs. John Martin at ten o’clock yesterday, and the body was laid to rest in the cemetery near town. Quite a large concourse of friends and relatives attended to pay their last respects to the memory of the departed.
