DEATH OF COL. WILLIAM HINTON, SR. (Wake County)
Fayetteville Observer, Thursday December 03, 1835
Posted November 18, 2009 by Myrtle Bridges
We learn from an Alabama paper, that Col. Wm. Hinton, of this county (Wake), who had very recently gone
on a visit to Alabama, was thrown from his buggy, on the 8th inst., near Decatur, Decalb county, and so
seriously injured as to survive only a few hours. He and his son A.C. Hinton had been on a visit to two
other of his sons in St. Clair and Greene counties. He was interred in the public cemetery of the town
of Decatur. He was about 70 years of age, and in robust health when he left this county a few weeks since.
He was a highly respectable gentleman; had no wife, and the major part of his children are in Alabama.
