Gunn, Homer L.
Homer L. Gunn – Hugo Range Ledger – May 20, 1922 – Will Receive a Goodly Sum – Thru the Efforts of Congressman Timberlake, the Service Record of Grover A. Sherill, Deceased, Is Corrected – The editor of the Ledger received a letter from Hon. Chas. B. Timberlake, our good representative in Congress, last Friday morning which brought cheer and everlasting gratitude into the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Hawthorne, foster parents of Grover A. Sherrill, also known as Homer L. Gunn, who passed away at the State Insane asylum at Pueblo, last December and was buried in Evergreen cemetery, near Hugo, on Christmas day. The letter briefly stated that a sum amounting to about $3400, had been allowed by the Veteran's Bureau to the estate of the young man, and would be paid to the administrator of his estate. This means that the blight on the record of the young man while a member of the U. S. Navy has been removed, and his name restored to good standing. Mr. and Mrs. Hawthorne had come into Hugo last Friday morning, expecting to leave for Houston, Texas, where they expect to reside, when they received the news from Washington and as it was necessary to take out administration papers on Grover's estate they delayed their departure until Saturday morning. In this connection, a short history of the case will prove interesting to our readers. Grover A. Sherrill was born at Fallstown, Texas, Nov. 23, 1887, where he grew to manhood. When fourteen months of age, his mother died and his oldest sister, Mrs. W. A. Hawthorne, took him in charge, caring for him as though her own child. On Sept. 5th, 1912, he enlisted in the U. S. Navy, advancing to a first-class fireman, being honorably discharged with an excellent record, after four years service, in September, 1916. He came home to visit his foster parents and other relatives in Texas. In July, 1917, shortly after the United States became involved in the World's war, he re-enlisted in the Navy, but served only a short time, when he was placed in a naval hospital in England, afflicted with a private disease; later, he was brought to an Army hospital in New York City, where he received his discharge from the Navy, on October 11, 1918, his discharge paper stating the cause as “his own misconduct.” He came home to his foster parents in Texas, and to them claimed that his condition was due more to the ill-treatment received in the English hospital, than it was to the disease. Later he came with Mr. and Mrs. Hawthorne to their new home in Colorado, where they located on a farm a few miles northwest of Hugo. His condition grew worse slowly until he became helplessly bedfast over a year ago, unable in mind to know even those near and dear to him. Last summer, thru the kindness of Mrs. S. M. Crosby, sister of Mrs. Hawthorne, the aid of the editor was called into the case. Mr. Miles, the editor of the Ledger, immediately communicated with Mr. Timberlake at Washington, who asked for a full detailed statement of the case with affidavits, etc., at the same time, expressing grave doubt as to success in getting the claim allowed, under the circumstances of the last discharge paper. However, Mr. Timberlake as usual gave the matter active attention, going personally to the Veterans' Bureau and urging careful consideration of the case, his efforts finally proving successful. In the meantime, the young man was adjudged insane before County Judge Hedlund and the lunacy commission in the county court last August, and taken to the state asylum at Pueblo where he passed away on December 21, 1921. As a result of Mr. Timberlake's invaluable services in this case, assisted by the editor, Mr. and Mrs. Hawthorne will now receive the compensation due the young man from the government during his life time, for their faithful care of him during his over two years of helplessness, and all claims will be paid by the Veterans' Bureau. The editor of the Ledger feels justly proud of the part he had in the case, for against great odds, we have been able to assist in righting what we believed to be a wrong, and at the same time gave our services gratuitously and willingly helped Mr. and Mrs. Hawthorne, whom we believed worthy of every effort we might put forth in their behalf, for if the young man had committed offense, he himself paid the penalty with his life. Our County Judge, Hon. P. O. Hedlund has also did his part in aiding Mr. and Mrs. Hawthorne, and is entitled to full credit for his part in the case. However, without Mr. Timberlake's aid, we feel that our local efforts would have resulted only in failure, so to him we extend our sincere thanks for his noble efforts in this very worthy cause.

Sylvia was a devoted wife and partner to Lee as well as his helpmate on the farm. She was a loving mother and friend to all who met her. She enjoyed Saturday evenings dancing the night away with Lee and longtime friends, Pete and Harriet Oftedal. She also loved spending hours playing cards and especially enjoyed beating Lee. She was a 50-year member of the Order of Eastern Star and an active member of the Evangelical United Methodist Church of Waseca. She will be sadly missed, but we all know she is happy to be dancing and playing cards with Lee once again. Memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2004, at McRaith Funeral Home in Waseca, Minn. Interment will be at the Pilgrim's Rest Cemetery in rural Mankato. The Gunsolus family will greet friends on Saturday afternoon for one hour prior to the service at the McRaith Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers and food, please honor Sylvia by making a donation to the Arthritis Foundation, The American Cancer Society or to the charity of your choice. The family generously thanks everyone who enriched Sylvia's last few years with friendship, comfort and care.
