Benton County Democrat 6 Jul 1905
Looney, E. Hayden--Word was received her last Monday that E. Hayden Looney, formerly of this place, had passed away at St. Luke's Hospital in St. Louis on Sunday. Mr. Looney had been employed at Piedmont, Mo. for some time where he was taken sick and was removed to St. Louis Friday, the 30th ult. He never rallied after his arrival and death ensued on Saturday. A general collapse was the cause of death. Hayden was well known here and was postmaster for several years. In later years he had been in poor health and travelled much. For some time he was employed in Rogers as prescription clerk in a drug store. He was an excellent druggist and at one time was proprietor of one of the leading drugstores in Bentonville. He leaves a wife and two children to mourn their loss, to whom the Democrat joins with friends in tendering sympathy.
