George F. Harmon
Monday’s Daily (Durant)- November 6- George Harmon, age 20 years, was instantly killed when he was struck by an automobile driven by a hit and run driver 1 ½ miles south of Caddo Sunday evening about 7:30 o’clock. Harmon, who lived on one of Judge R. L. William’s farms north of Armstrong, was instantly killed when his skull was crushed in the collision with the car. Accompanied by Doc Hill, of Caddo, Harmon was walking north on the highway. Hill last night told officers he was walking on the shoulder and Harmon was following him. Hill was not sure if Harmon was walking on the shoulder or on the concrete slab. Hill said the car swept past him after striking Harmon and either the car or the victim brushed him as they went by, knocking him down. Harmon was carried about 20 feet and then knocked from the highway. Hill said the driver stopped about 300 yards away, got out and looked at his car, and disregarding Hills’ calls to him to return, got back in his car and drove away. Hill was not able to get much description of the car and did not take the license number. He said he thought the car was a Plymouth coupe. No trace of the hit and run drive has been found after officers in adjoining counties were informed of the accident. Burial services for the victim were held in Caddo this afternoon. He is survived by his father, E. P. Harmon, one sister, Mrs. Irene Hill of near Caddo. He was born near Caddo, January 1, 1913. He will be missed by his many friends.
George’s mother had died a few years earlier:
