Tragedy Tree

Copied from Bandera County, TX

From Carol McIntyre

*All died July 25,1863 and their grave is enclosed by a metal fence and a single tombstone reading their names and the day of death. The location is two miles south of Bandera.

The following is an article published in August, 1924 on pages 8 through 11.

During the days of the Civil War, Bandera County was the scene of several tragedies, the most prominent of which was the execution of eight men one night in the summer of 1863, on Julian Creek, four miles east of this town. There are no living witnesses to this tragedy — at least, if they are living they have kept silent for many, many years. But living in Bandera County today are two or three men who remember the circumstances, and who assisted in giving the victims decent burial, and it is from these men that I get the information from which to weave the story of a crime for which the perpetrators were never brought to the bar of justice.

When Texas seceded from the Union, old Camp Verde, 12 miles north of Bandera, was occupied by the Confederate forces. First a frontier battalion was organized for protection against the Indians, and this was directed from Camp Verde. Later, Confederate soldiers were stationed at this well known post, where Gen. Lee, Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston and other notables had at previous times been in command. While Lawhon’s company was stationed at Camp Verde in 1863, it became known that a small party of supposed “bushwhackers” were passing through the country en route to Mexico to avoid conscription. There were eight men and one boy in the party, and it became known that they were from Florence, Williamson County. Why they were termed “bush-whackers” has never been explained, but it is presumed that they had taken part in certain bushwhacking operations and had been forced to leave that section. But be that as it may, the word was carried to Camp Verde and a troop of 25 men under command of Maj. W. J. Alexander immediately started in pursuit.

In the pursuing party were a number of men who were well known to the early settlers of Bandera County, but after the close of the war they all disappeared, some making haste to get out of the country. The small band of nine men passed through Bandera several days before the soldiers took up their pursuit. They were well mounted, well armed and well provisioned and made no secret of their destination, saying that they were leaving the country because they did not care to become involved in the strife between the States, and when it was over they expected to return and take up their residence in Williamson County again, where some of them had families and homes. They seemed quiet and peaceable and paid for everything they secured in Bandera, and went on their way.

Several days afterward Maj. Alexander and his men came through Bandera, on trail of the men, and went from here to Hondo. Picking up the trail there, they followed it to Squirrel Creek, some 10 miles beyond Hondo, where they discovered the men they were seeking in camp. They had finished their noonday meal, and were quietly resting, some lounging around and talking, others attending to the stock, not suspecting that they were being pursued and at that very moment in danger of being captured. Approaching under cover within a very short distance of where the men were camped, Maj. Alexander stepped out into an opening and, swinging his saber over his head, called upon them to surrender, telling them he had them surrounded and there was no chance for escape, and if they would quietly submit he would pledge his word that they should have a fair trial by court-martial at Camp Verde.

The little party of nine promptly yielded up their arms, and were then forced to saddle their horses and immediately start back toward Camp Verde. All went evenly enough until the second night on the return trip, when, while in camp on the Julian some of Alexander’s men wanted to hang the prisoners.

Some of the party refused to have any thing to do with the execution, but some were determined to put the prisoners out of the way, and accordingly marched them out some distance from camp and hung them one by one. A hair rope was used in hanging these men, and each one died by strangulation, being drawn up until choked to death. When life was extinct the victim was let down, and the rope cut, leaving the noose still about his neck. Bill Sawyer, one of the victims begged to be shot, saying he preferred that manner of death to being hung. His wish was granted, and some one in the party fired a rifle at him which only produced a flesh wound on his arm. Sawyer fell, but when it was found that he had not been fatally shot, another man placed the muzzle of his gun against the fallen man and shot him through the body with a full charge, leaving the ramrod in the gun, which went through him and into the ground. He was thus found the next day. The boy in the party, a lad about 16 years old, is supposed to have escaped, but he, too, may have been murdered, as he was never heard of again.

After completing their work, the men who had participated in this crime (those who refused to have a hand in it having passed on) came to Bandera the next morning and proceeded on to Camp Verde without delay, some of the party hinting to citizens that they had rid the country of some more bushwhackers. Alexander’s men had their victims’ horses, saddles, bedding, clothing and shoes.

Joseph H. Poor, who lived on the West Verde, was camped near the place of execution, and the next morning he went out to look for his horses and came upon the bodies just as Alexander’s men left them. He hastened to Bandera and notified the authorities and Justice of the Peace O. B. Miles, Robert Ballentyne, George Hay, Amasa Clark, John Pyka and a number of others went down there to investigate. They found seven of the men had been hanged until dead, and the eighth had been shot through with a ramrod, as stated. George Hay says he pulled the ramrod out of the body. An inquest was held, and the verdict rendered as follows: “We the jury, find that these men (giving their names) were killed by Maj. W. J. Alexander’s company.” A grave was opened and the bodies of the eight unfortunate men were rolled into it and covered up. Many years later a tombstone was erected over the grave, and on this tombstone appears the names of the men who were murdered while prisoners, who had been given a sacred pledge that they would be given just treatment if they surrendered.

How do we know these things? There were men in Maj. Alexander’s party who refused to countenance the execution of helpless prisoners, and months afterward they talked freely of the occurrence, telling all particulars, and even giving the names of the men who participated. This tragedy occurred in 1863, but retribution usually follows such crimes, and after the war ended and while E. J. Davis was Governor of Texas, district judges all over the State were instructed to charge their respective grand juries to investigate such matters. G. H. Noonan, a good man and true, was judge of this district at that time, and he directed the grand jury of this county to thoroughly investigate the hanging of these men, with the result that as soon as it became known that the strong arm of the law was reaching out, there was a hasty departure by some for a more congenial climate. This was in 1866.

The grand jury indicted W. J. Alexander et al for murder and highway robbery, and for want of service the case was continued on the docket from term to term, so the records show. Maj.Alexander had disappeared. Not one of the men charged in the indictment was ever arrested. One of them, it is said, was killed at New Braunfels by offers while resisting arrest. More than half a century has passed since that stain was placed on Bandera County’s history, and all who took part in it are supposed to be dead. But it is said that the men who urged the execution of those prisoners and carried it out were not citizens of the county. The court records may reveal their names, if search is made for they were indicted by the grand jury in 1866. The names of their victims are: C. J. Sawyer, W. M. Sawyer, George Thayer, William Shumake, Jack Whitmire, Jake Kyle,John Smart and a Mr. Vanwinkle.

George Hay, who is now in his 88th year, and still quite active, in discussing this crime, said: “I have seen many foul crimes in my time, but this was the most revolting that I ever knew. A party of us went out from Bandera as soon as we learned of the occurrence and found the bodies of those unfortunate men lying just as they had been cut down, pieces of the horsehair rope around each man’s neck. They had all been strangled to death by the rope being placed over a limb and drawn up, possibly by somebody on horseback. One man, Bill Sawyer, was laying face down, shot through with a wooden ramrod, which had passed entirely through his body and penetrated into the ground for at least 10 or 12 inches. It was with great difficulty that I drew out this ramrod. Alexander’s party passed through Bandera about 8 o’clock one Sunday morning, and in just a little while Joseph Poor came with the news that he had found some murdered men down on the Julian. We buried them as best we could, and in giving our verdict at the inquest we definitely placed the blame on Alexander’s men, some of whom I knew, but they are all dead now.”

Amasa Clark one of the first settlers here, and who is now in his 96th year, active and full of life,clearly remembers the time when this tragedy was enacted, and when questioned about it a few days ago was very emphatic in his denunciation of the perpetrators. His statement follows: “Oh, yes, I remember the hanging of the Sawyers and those other men. It was an outrage. They were murdered — yes murdered in cold blood. Deliberately murdered without being given a chance for their lives. I knew all of the circumstances, and when Mr. Poor brought word to Bandera that he had found their bodies Mr. Daniel Rugh asked me to go with him down there. When we arrived there a grewsome sight met our gaze. Some had been partly stripped. I heard afterward that some of the men who took part in the hanging had worn the clothes of their victims while passing through Bandera. There was a report that some of them gambled for the clothing the night of the murder, but I cannot vouch for this statement. This crime created a great deal of indignation here, but the citizens were powerless to do anything. The murdered men were strangers, peaceably passing through the country. They had committed no crime that I know of and should not have been molested. After the war diligent efforts were made to apprehend the guilty ones and bring them to justice, but without success. I knew several of them, but as soon as they were mustered out of the Confederate service, and before the civil courts were in good running order, they left the country. An attempt was made by New Braunfels officers to arrest one of these men on warrant from Bandera County, but he resisted arrest and was killed. Now, I do not charge this crime to Confederate soldiers. I do not believe a true Confederate would be guilty of such a heinous offense as deliberately putting to death an enemy without giving him every chance the law gives a man. I have lived in the South ever since I returned from my service in the Mexican War, in 1848, and I loved the South and the cause she fought for. I know the rules of warfare and how prisoners should be treated. Sawyer and his men were not treated as prisoners of war. They were hung without a trial, and it seems to me that robbery was the sole motive that prompted their execution. This all happened years ago, but it made such a lasting impression that I will never forget it, and have many times wished to see the guilty ones brought before the courts and made to pay the penalty for their crime.”

John Pyka, another highly respected citizen of Bandera, gave his version of this sad affair as follows: “At that time I was just a lad, large enough, however, to think I was about grown, and I distinctly remember when Mr. Joseph Poor came and notified us that he had seen the body of a man on the Julian with arrows sticking in him and he thought Indians were in the country. Mr. Poor lived on the West Verde, but was camped near the scene of the crime, and was out looking for his horses that had strayed off from camp when he came upon the bodies. He did not take time to investigate, but came right on to Bandera and notified the authorities. I went out with the crowd to the place, and we found seven of the men had been hung and one had been shot through with a ramrod. It was an awful spectacle. No, I do not think these men had been stripped of their clothing, because I remember seeing that the cattle had chewed the sleeve of the coat on one of the dead men, and if I remember rightly they were all in full attire. Their pockets were empty, showing that they had been robbed. A 16-year old boy that was captured with the men was spared for the time being, I understand, and was taken up about Fredericksburg, but as he was never heard of again, it is supposed that he, too was killed. I knew some of the men who had a hand in the hanging, but they left the country when investigation started. I think all of the participants are dead now, for it has been a long time ago since all this happened.”

“We dug a shallow grave, laid the dead men into it, spread blankets over them, and covered them up the best we could with dirt and stones to keep the wolves from getting to the bodies. I do not know of any person now living who was present at the time except myself, George Hay and Amasa Clark. There may be others, but I do not remember.”

The spreading oak to which these men were hung is still standing, a grim sentinel on a hillside, gnarled and knotted with age, a silent witness on the scene. Nearby, in a beautiful glade, is the shallow grave which contains the bones of the strangers who were the victims of a hellish plot. Over the grave stands a tombstone, placed there by citizens of the country who were familiar with the details of the murders. On this tombstone is inscribed the following: “C. J. Sawyer, W. M. Sawyer, George Thayre, William Shumake, Jack Whitmire, Jake Kyle, John Smart, Mr. Van Winkle, Died July 25, 1863. Remember, friends, as you pass by; as you are now, so once was I,As I am now, you soon will be; prepare for death and follow me.” Mutely this monument stands as the years roll by, in an out-of-the-way place, on land belonging to Frank Pyka. In its seclusion the grave is never disturbed, while in the springtime wild flowers grow and bloom over the mound, songbirds make melody in the nearby trees and the soft breezes that blow through the branches chant a requiem to the departed souls.

A Cowboy’s Unusual Dental Work

Bulldogger Bill Pickett earned his living as a performer by taking down steers by chomping on their upper lips

By Lori Grossman (Texas Co-op Power Magazine)

Private Collection | Peter Newark Western Americana | The Bridgeman Art LibraryThe 101 Ranch, near Guthrie, Oklahoma, was a beehive of activity on June 11, 1905. Thousands of excited rodeo fans arrived on foot, in wagons or in smart buggies. Storm clouds threatening the afternoon’s performance didn’t dampen their enthusiasm. They came to see Bill Pickett—“the Dusky Demon from Texas”—the cowboy who could down a steer using only his hands and teeth.

Pickett got this idea when, as an 11-year-old, he saw a cattle dog hold a cow motionless by biting down on its upper lip—a maneuver called bulldogging. Strangely enough, Pickett wanted to try it, so he approached a calf, grabbed its ears, chomped on its upper lip, let go of its ears and fell backward. Subdued by the pain, the dogie flopped over.

Richard Zelade’s book Central Texas (Taylor Trade Publishing, 2011) recounts Pickett’s first public bulldogging exhibition in Austin. Pickett, watching some Littlefield Cattle Company cowboys struggling with feisty calves, offered his newfound bite-’em technique. The cowboys stopped laughing when Pickett bit down on a calf’s upper lip, immobilizing it while they applied the searing branding iron. The amazed cowboys spread the news across Austin.

It was a watershed moment for a son of former slaves. Willie M. “Bill” Pickett is believed to have been born on December 5, 1870, in Jenks-Branch Community in Williamson County—one of 13 children. He quit school at 15 and became a working cowboy on area ranches. In 1900, Pickett started entertaining at rodeos across the West.

Bulldogging was dangerous, but Pickett loved the applause. He hit the big time in 1903 when glib-tongued promoter Dave McClure billed him as “Bulldog Pickett: the Dusky Demon—the Most Daring Cowboy Alive!” The term “dusky” was intended to disguise Pickett’s ethnicity whenever white cowboys shied from appearing on the same program as an African-American man. The spectators, however, didn’t seem to mind.

In 1905, Pickett took another step on his path to fame when he met Zack Miller, who, with his brothers, owned the 101 Ranch. Miller hired him to appear in his June show. The extravaganza, described in Cecil Johnson’s book Guts: Legendary Black Rodeo Cowboy Bill Pickett (Summit Publishing Group, 1994), also featured Geronimo shooting a buffalo from the back of a moving car and a frighteningly realistic attack on a wagon train. An estimated 60,000 spectators gave Pickett’s bulldogging a roaring ovation. He was such a sensation that he signed on with the 101 Ranch Wild West Show in 1907.

After performing in Brownsville in 1908, the Millers took the show to Mexico City. Joe Miller started a war of words in the newspapers with some Mexican bullfighters who bragged that they could do whatever Pickett could. Joe Miller challenged them and questioned their bravery—partly to get publicity for the show. This insult to the national sport outraged the locals. Either Miller or the bullfighters (sources differ) bet 5,000 pesos over whether Pickett could stay in contact with a bull for five minutes.

And so in December 1908, Pickett entered the El Toro arena mounted on his beloved horse, Spradley. The bull, Frijoli Chiquita, turned so quickly that the horse couldn’t get close enough unless Pickett could keep him from sidestepping. Spradley could not evade one of the bull’s charges and was gored. Pickett dismounted and grabbed the bull’s horns. He hung on more than five minutes, although the bull repeatedly slammed him against the wall and the crowd began pelting him with all sorts of objects—knives, fruit, rocks. An angry spectator threw a full beer bottle, hitting Pickett in the ribs and causing him to finally lose his grip.

After another cowboy lured Frijoli Chiquita away, Pickett hurried to his badly injured horse. An elderly Mexican offered a strange cure: two red bananas. He peeled them and thrust them into the horse’s gaping wounds. Surprisingly, Spradley healed quickly.

After World War I, the glory days of Wild West shows had passed. In 1931, the 101 show closed. Pickett died on April 2, 1932, after a horse kicked him in the head. The inventor of bulldogging was voted into the Rodeo Hall of Fame and, in 1989, was enshrined in the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame.

Rodeos today feature an event called steer wrestling. A cowboy chases down a steer, jumps off his horse then wrestles the steer to the ground by twisting its horns.

Some call that bulldogging. But it’s not the way the Dusky Demon used to do it. He would probably say that calling it bulldogging is just lip service.

Surrounded: The Dead Files

On June 8, 2012, The Dead Files episode “Surrounded” on Travel Channel featured a ghost investigation on some land in Cedar Park, Texas. Regardless of your opinion on ghosts, this episode features some good history about the area including Native Maericans and KKK activites. The show also has great shots of the local flora and fauna giving a nice view of the countryside.

Letter to Susie Vanhoose from Eppa Thornton Moore

Printer Friendly


Contributed by Mary Love Berryman (marylove@tyler.net) – 16 June 2003


Williamson County Texas August 13th, 1861

Miss Susie Vanhoose

My dear niece,

Yours of the 17th came to hand yesterday evening. I was proud to know that your thoughts still wandered over this way occasionally and to feel that assurance that I am still beloved by you though many a long and dreary mile streaches out between us. Sue, when I receive a letter from any of you, it is pleasure and grief mingled together and when I sit down to write my heart is full to overflowing and even now I cannot force back the tears when I think of friends, relatives and all departed never to meet again, for you must know that I can never return, and the prospect of any of you coming here is quite gloomy. But enough of this. You wish to know all the news. There is nothing here to talk of but war and I suppose you hear plenty of that. Times are growing hard all the time. Goods, groceries and everything is very high since the Maniac Lincoln placed his Man of war in our parts Coffee is only 3 lbs to the dollar. I wish we had a Navy that we could just blow them there to the four winds. The South should have this forthwith. The fine thing – Old Abe knows he will have three wars on his hands instead of one; is it not fortunate that the South is upon friendly terms with all other nations, at present; England and France will join us if the difficulty is not settled soon. Our Gov. in his proclamation ordered all men having Northern sentiments to leave. They are hanging men about here for horse and cow stealing. The regulators hung one man in ten miles of us. He hung there until he dried. His legs and arms dropped off or the dogs pulled them off. But his body and head was still hanging. This looks bad but then he was guilty. His wife went to (S)elton and tried to get men to go and bring him and get his knife (nif) and six shooter that was belted around him but no one would go. She came to our town and wanted our citizens to go and take him down but no one went. She rode up and looked at him and left.

I heard from San Saba a few weeks ago. All were well there. Your Cousin Mat is teaching her brothers and sisters and a few other children. She studied five months at Waco Institute last year. I suppose she has no thought of marrying soon. I have not seen Hatty Cook since she first came out here. She has two little girls. Jim’s wife has a girl and boy. Nan has two boys, one girl. David and Henry Hubert are single. Jack is married. Wiley has never tried to marry that I know of. Sister Betty Thite has his children. Uncle Richard Murray comes down occasionally to see us. Mr. Henderson has got bob (Bob) again. He intends to carry him below and sell him but the price of Negros is down and he gave it out.

Well Sue, this has been quite a crop year with us. We have so much wheat that we could hardly find room for it. Our corn is not gathered though it is plenty dry and all last week we were making syrup from the Chinese cane. We will have two barrels. There is several making at our mill. Some days we made 25 gallons per day.

Alice and Eugene are not going to schobl. Our teacher is off to the wars and will be in a few days. They have just returned from Waco. Several companies went there to drill and be in readiness. They will now go to the state line and there await orders from the President. From all accounts they are needed in Mo. now. McCulloth from Texas has had a big fight there.
He has about 600 Cherokee Indians with him. 600 Warriors can put 10,000 Yankies to flight an I would love to hear of them getting after old Lincoln, Scott, Seward and his gang. If they didn’t make them get up in dust I’d like to know the reason why.

Sue I wish you could see your little namesake. She is pretty and smart too. Jeff Davis is growing fast now since I took to feeding him. He can sit alone. Alice is very large of her age. She can wash dishes sweep the rooms and do a great many little things, for me.

Sue you said that you felt that you were left alone since Martha left. It does look hard to have but one sister, no brother and then be separated. I was glad to hear that you was with your Grand Pa for he must be very lonely when you are absent. And note that he is growing more old and feeble. You should study to make him as happy and comfortable as possible. Stay with him for my sake for you knol that I am so far away that I cannot even visit him. What a pleasure and what a blessing it is to him that you are still with him to attend to all his little wants and notions. You may be lonely in being deprived of the gay and pleasant company of the young. But the time will come if you live long enough that you will say within your ownself you did right in depriving yourself of somethings to gratify him. And now Sue I must tell you to say to Father that we re all well and getting along as well as could be expected in thesE times of war and trouble.

Thursday evening August 15th

Dear Sue

As I did not get to finish my letter Tuesday I will conclude this evening. James Moore brought me his suit of uniform soldiers cloths to make. I have just finished his roundabout. Miss Fannie Morris came over yesterday and made his pants. I now have to wash fix up his cloths and then he will start Saturday. Wm. Redding gave volunteers a candy stew Tuesday night. After the candy was disposed of the volunteers and young ladies formed a procession, marched up through the Prairie to the notes of the fife and drum and had quite jolly time. But the parting time is close at hand. They will all meet at Georgetown Saturday and start. I can sympathize with their weeping parents and families. Altho I am not left alone yet, I know have many near relatives in the armies and we cannot expect them all to get back safe. Lewis was anxious to go but I could not bear the thoughts of being left alone so far from home. If our own state is invaded he may have to go. I learn that Galveston has been attacked by the blockade. Our side victorious again. I believe I have written all the news and I wish you to write soon. Tell me about Aunt Sallie and all the kin folks. And now Susie before I close my letter I must insist upon you to stay close to your Grand Pa for I have thought and felt more seriously about his lonely situation of late than usual. And I have been advised of the fact that he is fast failing. It grieves me much to hear of his bad health. Tell Harriet and Mary and all of the servants to be kind and obedient to him. And may the Lord bless you all is my dayly prayer.

So Farewell, Sue

E. H. Moore (Eppa Thornton Moore)

P.S. Lew will write to Thomas and Father soon, perhaps by the next mail.


Eppa Thornton Moore, the author of the letter, was born 7 January 1833 in Fayette County, Alabama. She was the youngest daughter of David and Bathsheba
White Thornton. On 9 January 1853 she was married to Lewellen Moore, the
youngest son of Lewellen and Priscilla Thornton Moore also of Fayette County,
Alabama. In 1854 they came to Williamson County, Texas and settled near
Florence. Nine children were born to them:

Hatty Cook – Harriet Murray, wife of G. B. Cook, daughter of Richard and Agnes Moore Murray.

David and Henry Hubbert – sons of Matthew and Elizabeth Stallworth Thornton

Wiley – Wiley T. Murray, son of Richard and Agnes Moore Murray, m. 1. Sarah H. Hubbert, 2. Elizabeth Sloan.

Alice, Eugene and Jeff Davis – Children of Eppa and Lewellen Moore. James Moore, son of John Mayfield and Marinda White Paden Moore, m. Nancy Ann Tomlinson

Miss Fannie Morris – Daughter of John and Sarah Frame Morris.

Thomas – Thomas Thornton, son of David and Bathsheba White Thornton.

Father and your Grand Pa – David Thornton.

Martha – Martha Van Hoose, daughter of Nancy A. Thornton Van Hoose Murray, m. John Yerby.

The letter was written to her neice, Susannah Van Hoose, the daughter of Eppa’s sister Nancy, who lived in Fayette County, Alabama. Much to Eppa’s sorrow Lewellen (Louis/Lew) did enlist in the Confederate Army and served with Co. G, Col. R. T. P. Allen’s Regiment TVI, CSA.

Letter to Britton Vest from Betty Mabry

Mr. Britton C. Vest
Bagdad, Williamson County, Texas

April 12th 1868

Kindest Friend

I received your letter last evening requesting me to write you the particulars of my dear brother William’s death. With grief do I relate his sufferings and death. He was taken sick on the night of the 13 of March but he told us nothing of it. Next morning he arose as he commonly did and made a fire, but went back to the room and lay down again. I got breakfast ready but he refused to eat. I went to him and found he had a very high fever.

He however after laying abed for some two hours he again got up, washed himself and combed his hair and tried to be cheerful as usual. We fixed him his breakfast but he ate very little. He soon had to take to his bed again. Alas! that bed from which he never arise only to be carried by his weeping friends to the silent churchyard. His sickness was of short duration, living but four days after he was taken. We sent for a physician the second day. He did all in his power to save him, but all in vain. His short race was run, all medical skill could not stay his approaching destiny. He suffered greatly but bore it with unshrinking fortitude. He was perfectly at himself til the last moment; Oh, would you all have been here at his dying to see this Christian die. Could you have heard his dear dying words it surely would make you rejoice instead of grieve. There were a number of his faithful friends around his dying couch. He bade us all goodbye and said to meet him in heaven. He told us to tell all his friends to meet him there and begged us not to weep for him. His last words to me was “Beck, you mustn’t weep for me”. Oh how those sweet words are still remembered, they sound so plainly to me yet. I try to do as he requested me but how can I keep from weeping for so dear and kind a brother as he was always to me. I think my heart must be stone not to shed tears, yes bitter years, for my noble brother. I find it hard, yes the hardest trial I ever had to endure to give him up.

It so hard I can’t give him up although I know he is gone and can never return to me. It sometimes appears to me more than I can bear but of course, it is not or it would not have been put upon me. He was buried with Masonic honors surrounded by many mourning friends, there are many to mourn for him, for if he had an enemy I knew it not. everyone loved him as you very well know. He died of pneumonia.

Ma has been very low with pneumonia but is going about again. Papa has sold out here said rented a place in Salado. We intended on moving tomorrow but I don’t know whether we will get off or not, as it is now raining. Give my love to Mrs. Vest and Parson Vest, to Lide, and all the family. Excuse mistakes and blunders. Wright soon.

Betty Mabry

April 22nd 1868

I have not had a chance to send my letter to the office before. Papa received Parson Vest’s letter the other day. I don’t expect he can meet him at his meetings as he is in a great rush at this time. We have got to Salado at last.
