He had spent his entire life in the community in which he was born. He, with his brother Repps, and two sisters, Bettie and Mabel, lived in the old homestead.
Mr. Marable was a Mason and was well liked by everyone with whom he came in contact. Many friends throughout Montgomery County grieve his untimely death.
(Transcribed from the Clarksville Weekly Chronicle, August 16, 1933, p.1, col. 3).
The obit states his name as Harding H. Marable but on his World War 1 Draft Registration Card, in his own writing, he indicated his name as Henry Harding Marable.
Since Mayor Marable's death was of the utmost focus during this time, many many articles were devoted exclusively to Dr. Marable in this edition of the Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle. What follows is a recap and summary of his death. He was the sitting Mayor of the City of Clarksville when he died.
Dr. THOMAS HOWARD MARABLE,
Mayor of the City of Clarksville, TN - Date of Death 11-12-1917
HUNDREDS AT FUNERAL OF MAYOR T.H. MARABLE
People From All Walks of Life Pay Loving Respect
To The Memory of One They Truly Loved
Knights Templar Burial Service an Impressive Feature.
One of the largest and most impressive funerals ever witnessed in Clarksville was that of Mayor T. H. Marable, which was solemized at the family home on Greenwood Avenue at 10 o'clock this morning. The occasion, in several respects, was a remarkable one. There perhaps was never a funeral in Clarksville at which more universal and genuine grief was displayed. Men, women and children by the score broke down and shed tears, copiously shaken and bowed by an emotion entirely beyond their control. From 8 o'clock to 9:45, the body lay in state under a guard of honor from Clarksville Commandry of Knights Templar. In the meantime, it was viewed by hundreds of people from all walks of life. It afforded eloquent and incontestable proof that Dr. Marable occupied a large place in the affections of hundreds of people in this community. Nor was that testimonial supplied alone by members of his own race. The fact is stated that among those who viewed the remains was a stalwart negro man. It was noted he was deeply stirred and was striving hard for self-control, while pausing for a moment besdie the bier. On leaving the building however, he broke down completely and sobbed as if his heart were breaking. The incident is mentioned simply to indicate the widespreead esteem in which Dr. Marable was held in this community and how much deplored is his death.
The Revs J.W. Cherry and R. (unreadable) ...service at the home , the remains being transferred from the High School auditorium a few minutes prior to the funeral service.
Dr. Marable for years had been prominently identified with the Masonic fraternity. He had filled all the chairs of the Blue Lodge, Chapter....very fitting that his Commandry should have been present in a body at his obsequies. The Knights drawn up in double line, stood at ease during the service within the home. A great number of people thronged the yard and the street, standing reverently with bowed heads throughout the service. It would have required the large auditorium at the High School to accommodate all those who attended these obsequies. There were over one hundred automobiles in line of procession to the cemetery.
Knights Templar in Charge
At Greenwood, the burial service for Knights Templar was carried out, in which eminent Commander, A.C. Morgan and the Grand Prelate of Tennessee, R. de Ovies, officiated. This service, witnessed by hundreds, was exceedingly impressive. A portion of these solemn rites were these words spoken by the Eminent Commander: "A burning taper of life in our Commandry has been extinguished, and none save the High and Holy One can re-light it. All that remains of our beloved companion lies mute before us, and the light of the eye, and the breathing of the lips, in their language of fraternal greeting, has ceased for us forever on this side of the grave. His sword, vowed only to be drawn in the cause of truth, justice, and rational liberty, reposes still in its scabbord and our arms can no more shield him from wrong and oppression. It is meet, at such time, that we should be silent, and let the words of the Infinite and Undying speak, that we may gather consolation from his revelations, and impress upon our minds lessons of wisdom and instruction, the meeting of preparation for the last great change which must pass upon us all."
Upon the conclusion of the impressive service a selected choir sang several touching hymns. Upon the new made mound, loving friends deposited great masses of the most beautiful flowers in such quantities as to completely conceal all visible evidence that beneath lay the mortal remains of as good and as true a man as ever graced the walks of life. Peace to his memory.
From 10 till 12 o'clock this morning, all business was suspended downtown in order that the proprietors and clerks could pay proper respect to the departed Mayor.

TRIBUTE PAID TO MRS. MARABLE
Pointing out that her life was a legacy example left behind for her loved ones, the Rev. H.W. Wyre, Pastor of the Church of Christ, touched upon the characteristics of Mrs. Caroline Edwards Marable in funeral services conducted this afternoon. Interment was in Greenwood Cemetery. Many floral offerings attested the love in which Mrs. Marable was held.
Reading from Psalm 23 and other Scripture reference, Mr. Wyne said that in Mrs. Marable's death two had been made happy, she who died and HE who had given her life.

In comforting members of her family, the minister said this earth is but a revolving graveyard, but the Christian enters into a realm where there is no death. He said the body was not Mrs. Marable, but instead it was her servant which she had used while here. He said the body, having served its purpose, was discarded for a celestial body. The Rev. Frank P. Taylor, Pastor of the New Providence Church led the prayer. A mixed choir sang "(illegible.....Only a Dream, "In The Sweet By and By" and "Meet me There".

DATE OF DEATH - MARCH 31, 1890
W.D. Moss, was born in Warren County, N.C., September 16, 1822; immigrated to Montgomery County, TN., in 1849, where he resided until 1860. He then moved to Christian County, KY., where he died March 31st, 1890, aged 67 years, 6 months and 15 days.
Broddie Moss was a noble, kind-hearted, generous and most hospitable man. A kind husband, a devoted father and grandfather. He was social and cheerful by nature, always spreading sunshine wherever he went.
He was the social life of every group of friends he met, but never seemed so happy as when he had his friends, his children and grandchildren gathered around his cheerful home, enjoying his bountiful hospitality.
He leaves a grief-stricken wife, a sorrowing family, and a host of friends to mourn his loss.
His last illness was of several weeks duration and severer but he bore it with remarkable fortitude. Although he was not a professor of religion, he died not as one without hope, for several days before his death, he seemed almost constantly engaged in devout and earnest prayer, and only a few minutes before he breathed his last, he called his children around his bedside and bid them farewell. He expressed a perfect resignation to his fate, that he was not afraid to die; but was prepared, ready and willing to go. We feel and believe that our loss is his eternal gain.
