1924 :: Death of Dr. H.C. Black



Monday's State papers carried the news of the death of Dr. H.C. Black, aged 69, at Waco. Decedent was once a citizen of Rockdale, but probably only a few of our older citizens will remember him as it has been about 35 years since he left here. He was found dead in his garage, having suffered a stroke of apoplexy as he was putting his car away after returning from a professional call.
