S.A. Hoy Expires of Heart Failure


Groton Man's Death Shocks Community

Funeral on Wednesday



Groton community was thrown into profound sorrow

and shock last Saturday afternoon when it was

learned that S. A. Hoy, a prominent farmer and for

25 years identified with the business life of the city,

had expired from a heart attack while doing chores on his

farm east of town. Mr. Hoy was alone at the time, since

Mrs. Hoy was in Groton. The body was found by

George Van De Brake who when to the Hoy farm

to help him with his duties. It was found partially within

the barn where he passed away when the fatal attack

struck him.




Mr. Hoy was born at Adrian, Ohio, October 30, 1865,

and came to South Dakota in 1882, settling near La Delle.

He was married November 26, 1902, to Miss Blanche
Cadwell, the ceremony taking place at Ellsworth, Kansas.

Four children were born to this union and all of them

are survivors.


Mr. Hoy came to Groton in 1912 and acquired a junior

partnership in the farm of H. W. Cassels & Company,

and this organization flourished for the greater part of

twenty-five years, when it was dissolved about two

years ago. Then Mr. Hoy went back to his favorite

calling -- farming -- and retired to his acres east of town.

He also was an extensive owner of Spink county land.




Mr. Hoy came to South Dakota when 17 years of age

with his parents, and he continued his education

in the schools of Spink county. In 1887, at the age

of 21 years, he began his career as teacher in the

public schools of Spink county, proving successful

from the start, and continued to follow his profession

for thirteen years, at the expiration of which,

in 1900, he was elected to the office of superintendent

of schools of Spink county, and served in this

capacity for four years, being re-elected in 1902.

His regime as county superintendent resulted in

admirable good being accomplished for the cause

of education through the confidence he inspired in

teachers and hearty cooperation given him by the

people in his jurisdiction.


At the conclusion of his administration as county

superintendent he went into business in Spink county, being one of a partnership of three who engaged in the general mercantile business in Spink county. He was associated with his brother, Charles and a Mr. Moriarity. The deceased successfully managed the business

for a number of years.




Mr. Hoy is survived by his wife and four sons in the

immediate family, besides several brothers and sisters.

The sons are Ed, of Rapid City; Al, of Redfield;

John, who is serving his second or third hitch in the navy,

and Roger of Groton. The brother are Wiley of North Dakota; Jesse of Hitchcock, South Dakota;

 and Harry of Portland, Oregon.

 Four other brothers passes away previously.

Three sisters also survive him. They are Mrs. Clara

Richards of Lebanon, Oregon; Mrs. Ida East and

Mrs. Lillian Haskins of Brownville, Oregon.


The Funeral was held from the Methodist church,

Wednesday afternoon at 2:30. The services were

conducted by Reverend L. C. Benson, and the

remains were laid to rest in Groton cemetery.
