Alex Haas Obituary

New Orleans Times-Picayune, 25 Feb 1908:


Colonel Alex M. Haas


Bunkie, La., Feb. 25-Colonel Alex M. Haas, one of the pioneers of this part of the State and one of its leading citizens, died last night at 10 o'clock at the home of his son, Dr. W.D. Haas, in Bunkie. Colonel Haas, who was in his seventieth year, had been confined to his bed in declining health for a year or more.  He had visited several points in the hope of being benefited but he found no relief.  Colonel Haas served with distinction on the Southern side in the Civil War, and was an honored member of the United Confederate Veterans. He had been largely identified with planting on Bayou Boeuf, and with his sons, W. D. and A.M. Haas, had much farm property along that stream.  Two sons, Dr. W.D. Haas, of Bunkie, and Dr. A.M. Haas of Haasville, had three daughters, Mrs. Clarence B. Strouse, of Virginia; Mrs. Dave Pokorny, of New Orleans, and Mrs. Alice Dannenbaum, of San Francisco, together with the widow, are the surviving members of the family.  Colonel Haas was married twice, his first wife being Miss Marshall, of Evergreen.  The funeral services and burial were held this afternoon at the family burying grounds at Evergreen.
