  April 5, 1905 Another Fire Hotel, Post Office and Two Groceries Destroyed Court House Caught Fire But Was Put Out With But Little Damage Heavy Losses With Little Insurance Cadiz was visited by another disastrous fire early yesterday morning. A portion of the block west of the Court House burned, and the post office, two grocery stores and the Hillman Hotel were destroyed. The fire originated in the grocery store of E. L. Hancock, and was first discovered about twelve o?clock. The building was a frame structure, as was the buildings in which the post office and Eli Dickerson?s grocery and meat store were located, and the fire soon spread to these buildings and beyond control. The hotel was next in line of the fire, and notwithstanding the efforts of the people of the town to stop it, the building was also soon in flames. By heroic efforts the fire was finally stopped when the hotel was consumed, and the building occupied by Francis Mitchell?s saloon was saved after a hard fight. The building caught fire and it looked for a time that it would go. The two story building of Mrs. T. F. McBride on the corner and which adjoined the hotel was also saved after a hard struggle with the flames. It was a frame structure, but the brick wall between it and the hotel enabled those fighting the fire to save it with something like $300 damages, covered by insurance. No one knows how the fire caught. The three buildings occupied by the post office, Mr. Hancock, and Dickerson belonged to C. H. Hawkins, and was valued at $5,000, with no insurance. The hotel occupied by Mr. Hillman belonged to Dr. W. C. Cunningham, and was valued at $3,200, with only a $1,000 insurance. It was a brick building. Mr. Hancock estimates the loss of his stock of groceries at $4,500, with $3,000 insurance. The post office fixtures were probably worth $300, with $200 insurance. Eli Dickerson?s loss was about $800, with no insurance. Francis Mitchell?s saloon was badly damaged by the fire and water, but was covered by insurance. The building he occupied belonged to Capt. John C. Dabney, and was insured for $1,000. The damage will at least reach that amount. Mr. Hillman estimates his loss at $200. Most all the furniture in the upstairs rooms was destroyed. Several boarders had narrow escapes, and Walter Hutchen and wife, who boarded at the hotel, lost some of their clothing. Nothing was saved out of the post office. Hancock?s and Dickerson?s groceries. The Court House caught on fire, but was put out with the loss of the glass in the windows on the side next to the fire and slight damage to the window frames. The loss was covered my insurance. It looks almost miraculous that the entire block did not burn, with a strong probability of the fire spreading to buildings across the street. But for the water system which was put in Cadiz only a few months ago, it would hot have been possible to save a single building in the block, and the loss of other property would have been a hard task to have prevented. The post office is temporarily located in the front room of Mrs. McBride?s house, while Mr. Hillman will for the present occupy a part of the same building as a hotel.

  June 1907 Dr. W. C. Cunningham Called To His Reward After Illness of Several Months Was a Prominent Dentist of This Place and a Splendid Citizen After an illness of several months of a complication of lung and stomach troubles, Dr. W. C. Cunningham was called to his final reward at his residence here last Thursday evening about 7:30 o?clock. For the past six months he had not been able to do any work, and for several weeks prior to his death he had not been able to leave his room and his death was not a surprise to his many friends and relatives throughout this county. Dr. Cunningham was the son of Mr. And Mrs. Mickens Cunningham, deceased, and was born near Trigg Furnace, in this county, on July 1, 1854. He had been married three times. His first wife was Miss Dora E. Robertson, of Livingston county, to whom he was married in 1882. This union was blessed with five children, all of whom are now living as follows: Dr. H. G.., Jewel and Fenton Cunningham and Mrs. H. S. Mitchell, of this place, and Mrs. Tharp Cunningham, of near Trigg Furnace. His second wife to whom he was married in 1895, was Miss Lula Adams, of this county, and to them two children were born ? Mark and Ruth Cunningham, who now live here with the family. He was married the third time in 1900 to Miss Julia Adams, sister of his second wife, who with one little son, Paul survives him. Besides his wife and these eight children, he is also survived by one brother, Mr. R. W. Cunningham, of Canton, and two sisters, Mrs. Missouri Hendrick and Mrs. Eliza Hendrick of this county. Dr. Cunningham joined the Baptist church over thirty years ago, and had lived a consecrated, Christian life, and at the time of his death was a member of the Baptist Church at this place. He had also been a Mason for more than twenty years, and was a member of the lodge here. He had been practicing dentistry for the past twelve years, and moved here several years ago from his farm near Trigg Furnace, where he has since lived. Two years ago his son, Dr. H. G. Cunningham, graduated from a dental college at Louisville, and since that time they have been partners here in the practice and have had a splendid business. His remains were laid to rest Friday afternoon in the old family burying ground at Trigg Furnace, under the auspices of the local Masonic lodge and in the presence of a large crowd of relatives and friends, who mourn his death. The Record joins the entire town and community in extending to this bereaved family heartfelt sympathy in this sad hour. (Trigg County Historical Clippings, Vol 7)
  June 1907 Salvation Army Resolutions of Respect The following resolutions were adopted by Cadiz Lodge, No. 121, F. and A. M. on the death of Dr. W. C. Cunningham. Whereas, the Grand Master of the universe has removed from his earthly labors our brother, Warren C. Cunningham, be it resolved. That in the death of our brother this lodge has lost one of its most useful and devoted craftsmen; the community a valued citizen; the family a kind and indulgent husband and father, his friends a true and tried associate. While we deeply mourn his loss, we can but bow in meek submission to the decrees of the All Wise, comforted with pleasant memories of his earthly pilgrimage, and that hope of immortality so well exemplified in the teachings of our order. That a copy of these resolutions be spread on the records of the Lodge, a copy sent to family of our deceased brother, and to the Cadiz Record for publication. G. B. Bingham C. E. Lackey John J.
