Joel t. hardage


The Opp News, Nov. 3, 1932

Joel T. Hardage Passed Away Sun. Night 10 o'Clock

Joel Thomas Hardage of this city passed away suddenly at his home at
10 o'clock Sunday night October 30. Shortly before 10 o'clock he awoke his wife struggling for life and passed away a few minutes later before medical aid could be summoned. The cause of his death was failure of the heart. For the last two or three years Mr. Hardage has been in declining health, but was apparently in as good health as usual on Sunday night, he having conversed with his wife and friends at his fireside retiring for the night.

Mr. Hardage was one of Opp's most prominent citizens. He was a former
County Supt. of Education and Representative in the state legislature. He was born at Carrollton, Ga., Nov. 4, 1963, is te son of James McKinney and Sarah (Jackson) Hardage, the former a native of Georgia and a Confederate soldier, serving in Co. I, 2nd Ga. Regt., grandson of Aadam and Mariah (Woodall) Hardage and of Jessie and Mary (Brady) Jackson, all residents of Wilkinson County, Ga. Jessie Jackson was a veteran of the Indian Wars, and removed to Alabama before his death.

The deceased was educated in the common schools, and the
high school of Rutledge in Crenshaw County. He taught school for several years and served five terms as Supt. of Education of Covington County beginning with the year 1892. In the year 1915 he was elected to the state Legislature and served one term. Mr. Hardage was an untiring worker for the best things in life in both his public and private career. He was an ardent advocate of prohibition and labored unceasingly in its cause. He was a great believer in temperance in all things and carried out this principle in habits of his daily life. He was a democrat and held the faith of the Bible Students but belonged to no church or secret orders.

He was married on
Feb. 10th 1887 near Rose Hill, Ala., to Mary Elizabeth Taylor daughter to Wendell W. and Matilda (Jones) Taylor of that place, who was his faithful and loyal wife until her death on Nov. 3, 1929. On August 5th 1930 Mr. Hardage married his second wife, mrs. Mattie (Taylor) Colvin, the widow of the late Dr. H. B. Colvin of Quitman, Ga. Mrs. Hardage is a first cousin to the deceased's first wife, and comes from one of the most prominent families in this section. She was a devoted companion and closely guarded the health of her husband.

Funeral services was (sic) conducted at the home by W. J. Stanley and Rev. W. E. Fuller of this place and enterment (sic) made at
Pilgrims Rest Cemetery.

Surviving the deceased is his wife and Brother, A. J. Hardage, and a host of relatives.

Mrs. Joel T. Hardage Called by Death

At about
six o'clock Tuesday morning the death angel called for Mrs. Joel T. Hardage, age 60. Mrs. Hardage had been in declining health for about a year, and underwent an operation at Florala last spring. For a while after her operation she was thought to be better, but her trouble soon came back on her which meant that her stay here was to be short.

Mrs. Hardage, who was Miss Mary Taylor, daughter of the late Wendell W. Taylor or Rose Hill, was a native of
Covington County. She came of one of the county's earliest and best families.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Hardage leaves five brothers and five sisters to mourn her going. The brothers are John and Lonnie Taylor of
Gadsden, Ala.; Jas. M. and Hugh Taylor of Andalusia; and W. W. Taylor of Florala. The sisters are Mrs. Will Caton, Florala; Mrs. Alice Rozier of Holt, Fla.; Mrs. Beckie Dunn of near Brantley; Mrs. Gustie Flourney for Birmingham; and Mrs. Johns, of Rose Hill.

The funeral services were held at the Pilgrim Rest cemetery near Dozier, a few miles from the old homestead of her father, Tuesday at
noon. Dr. Stough of Dothan, of the International Bible Students, of which faith Mrs. Hardage was a strong believer, conducted the services. 


A large audience witnessed the sad rites."
