Harold Hearn

above from the Salisbury Times July 1, 1940
Harold Alexander Hearn (1905-1951) was someone from Delmar whose name was usually associated with terrorizing women, Habitually disorderly, vagrancy, larceny etc.  He did do a spell in the Army during WW2 with Co. C,  711 Railway Operating Engineer Bn. but after his discharge in 1945 went back to his old ways. He is buried in St Stephens cemetery.

It is interesting how in the 1930s and 1940s how closely the railroad police (Oscar M. Thomas) and the town police (Arthur L. Godfrey) worked together.
