Notes for Elise Margarethe Kuckuck:
LA GRANGE JOURNAL
24 OCT 1907
MRS. ELISE WILLRICH

The subject of this sketch who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Emil Koehler, last Wednesday night, 16
October 1907, was one of the old landmarks of Fayette County. For several years the good old lady was blind,
and an invalid, during which time her devoted daughter, Mrs. Koehler, administered to her every want and
comfort. Death came to her peacefully, and amid the pleasant surroundings of a cheerful home. Her last years
were one continual reign of darkness, through which only one ray of light crept - the kind devotion of her relatives
and the hope that the allwise Creator would soon call her home. The
summons came Wednesday and she responded cheerfully. She had attained the ripe old age of ninety-nine years,
5 mons and 19 days. Mrs. Willrich, who was the only daughter of Major Kukuk of the English Army, Hanovarian
Division, was born at Hanover, Germany on April 27, 1808. She was married to Judge Georg K. Willrich and
four children, two sons and two daughters, viz: Prof. Julius Willrich who resides at Bluff; Mrs. Gustav Groos of
San Antonio, Otto Willrich and Mrs. Emil
Koehler of Bluff, were the fruits of this union. The family came to Texas in 1847 and located in Fayette County
when the whole county was still in its infancy. Not only were her cares confined to the raising of her own
children, but also to the raising of six children of her husband by a former marriage. Of these all have died except
Mrs. Keuffel, who lives in Germany, and Mrs. John Vogt of O'Quinn. Beside her children, themselves
grandparents, she leaves to mourn her loss twenty-three grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren. The
funeral took place Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the home of Emil Koehler, and the remains were followed to
the Lewis Cemetery by a very large number of relatives and friends who loved and honored her. May her rest be
peaceful.

"Mail from Mount Eliza to Germany"

The last couple of days I've been reading the private mail of Elise Willrich, a remarkable woman who lived with
her family in an extraordinary house, a few miles south of La Grange in the old Bluff community.

She wrote the best letters. Listen to a few lines she penned to her father in Germany. These were written in 1848,
after she had been in this country a year:

"We have sold our slaves because they always ran away. It is said here that the Germans don't know how to
handle negroes - are often too good to them, and Willrich (her husband) above all. The black people, we are told,

                                                          21
are often in need of whipping, and neither of us could stand for that. At present we have a hired negress and
when the opportunity presents itself we want to buy two half-grown children, hoping they may learn to become
attached to us."

In this same letter she described to her father what a Texas winter was like, to a person who spent the first 30-odd
years of her life in northern Germany:

"The winter here really doesn't exist, for the weather is very mild and only when a sudden norther arrives does it
get unbearably cold, and then ice as thick as my finger forms in all the vessels containing water, and the water
holes from which we fetch it also have a crust of ice. However . . . it never lasts more than two or three days."

Her father had evidently asked about the bread in Texas. She wrote:

"The bread is both healthy and palatable, if correctly made. It is made of maize, generally called corn here, which
we grind three times through hand mills set coarse or fine. After grinding we sift it . . . and then it is almost like
our wheat flour and can be used for cake and many other purposes . . . However it is troublesome to make bread
in this way, for it has to be done three times daily, and invariably at the very moment when the hearth is already
filled with pots and pans, and to these must be added two pots of bread with their lids filled with red-hot
firebrands, which throw off a terrific heat."

That large hearth she mentions is, I am told, still intact in the old Willrich home. The house, called Mount Eliza,
was considered roomy and grand when it was finished in the 1840s. It is of German "fachwerk" construction, the
walls framed in heavy timbers and filled in with stone and masonry. No one lives in the house now. It is owned
by Karl Thuemler, is on private property and not open to the public.

Elise Willrich's letters from Mount Eliza provide considerable information about the practical side of pioneer life
in the mid-19th century Texas.

It's astonishing to me that such a woman ever came to this state, and lived in pioneer style, making bread in iron
pots on a stone hearth. Because in Germany she had been brought up in gentle ways. Her father was a German
Army officer, and she was accustomed to dancing and partying and social doings.

But her mother wanted Elise to learn survival in the country. In what seemed later to be a prophetic move, the
mother sent Elise away from the bright lights for a year. She went to the country and learned to milk a cow, bake
bread, kill a chicken, stuff sausage.

But back in the city she married a judge, a widower with seven children, and had three of her own, and servants,
and the good and easy life. They lived in Luneburg.

The one day her husband, Georg Carl Willrich, sent his wife a shocking message. He had gone to Hamburg, and
had suddenly decided because of the political turmoil rising then in Germany, to move to Texas.

He didn't even return home. He told Elise, in effect, "Break up the household. Bundle up the children. Bring
what you can, sell the rest and follow me to Texas."

She followed, on a sailing ship with that brood of children. Sixteen weeks at sea.

In Texas, Fayette County, the roomy house that Elise Willrich found her husband building was the one that stands
yet, by U.S. 77 about four miles south of La Grange. Elise lived in that house until her death. She was almost
100.

The Willrichs give us a good example of the sort of contribution that 19th century German immigration made to
Texas culture. Elise worked in the fields with her husband, even until her feet increased in size to the point that
she couldn't wear the shoes she had in Germany. But she maintained her love for fine and gentle things.

Along with all those children, she brought to the Texas wilderness fine linen tablecloths, and delicate china, and
books, and sheet music. Germans brought much intellect and artistry to this state. Elise Willrich was proud of
that.


                                                           22
She wrote to her stepdaughter in Luneburg in 1850, "The people living around us are almost all cultured and well
educated, and that is why our settlement has been called the High German settlement, and all its members strive to
have their children well bred and educated."

In that letter she enclosed a list of items she wanted sent to her. On the list were a spelling book for the children,
and "all the bulbs you can get together . . . like queenscrown, lilies, tulips, hyacinths, narcissus . . . also cuttings
from gardenia, of good quality."

Mount Eliza became known for Georg Willrich's grapevine cuttings, and his tobacco which he evidently grew
with great success. And for Elise's flowers.

It was known also as a place of entertainment and enlightenment. The house has a roomy central hall that served
as a stage for traveling minstrels and drama troupes.

Elise's letters that I have quoted from were displayed, the last time I was there, at the Fayette County Heritage
Museum in La Grange. I would guess from reading them that what she missed the most after she left her
homeland (not counting a young son who stayed with her father) was butter and milk. She wrote home about the
first cup of coffee she had with milk, after months without, and about the first piece of cornbread with butter. She
described them as "nectar and ambrosia."

That must have sounded curious to her father, for a daughter of such gentle upbringing to get all that lyrical about
having butter on her cornbread.

                JULIUS WILLRICH OLD CITIZEN RESPONDS

                Death Comes Peacefully to Prof. JULIUS WILLRICH
                Tuesday night without warning, the grim reaper claimed another of our oldest citizens, when Prof. Julius
                Willrich, aged seventy-eight years passed to his reward February 11, 1919. He was born December 31,
                1841. Not ill but ever active and about as was his custom, few could believe the report when it was
                circulated early Wednesday morning.
                Prof. Willrich, prominently connected and for nearly sixty years a citizen of this county, was of a quiet
                and friend-making disposition, ably educated and proficient to his calling - school teacher, which he
                pursued for many years. At one time he taught at the Teutonia School which was near Mt. Eliza where
                he lived with his parents, Georg K. and Elise (Kukuk) Willrich for a time.

                In this country when the North and South struggled for supremacy, he served as a confederate soldier,
                retaining this dignified bearing until the end.

                From the home of Mrs. Elise Mensing in this city the funeral will be held today, Thursday, afternoon at
                two o'clock with interment at the Cedar Cemetery. Friends, relatives and acquaintances are asked to
                attend. Prof. Willrich leaves many relatives and friends to mourn his departure.


                "The Latins and the Prairie Blume Society"
                By Donna Green

                The Latins were a group of young people who lived in and around the Bluff area of Fayette County
                during the 1840-1860 time period. They were so named because of their education and cultural
                background. They had emigrated from the small principalities of Central Europe in order to give their
                children better opportunities. These people hoped to find in Texas the democracy and freedom that had
                been denied them in Europe. Many of the Latins were political refugees who had taken part in the
                republican revolution of 1848.

                The Latins were proud of their culture and education and often found it difficult to adjust to their new
                rural surroundings. One young woman wrote to a friend in Europe complaining that there was little
                mental stimulation in the daily life on a farm. She wrote that each day suffered from "eternal sameness"
                and was "painfully monotonous." In her desire to learn she often spent countless hours studying alone.

                About 1857 things changed for the young Latins of the area when a local German poet, Johannes
                Romberg, formed the Prairie Blume Literary Society at Black Jack Springs. It was one of the first literary
                societies in Texas. The society published a journal featuring literary contributions from its members. The
                journal was named the "Prairie Blume" because the prairie flower symbolized prose and poetry.

                The young Latins anxiously awaited every meeting of the society. It was nothing for them to ride
                fourteen miles on horseback just to attend one of the meetings. They were much more formal than is
                customary today. Julius Willrich would often ride to a member's garden gate and invite them to the next
                meeting with these words: "I have the honor to invite you to the next meeting of the Prairie Blume at our
                house." Various families took turns in entertaining the group of young scholars.
                At meetings intellectual games were often played followed by a flute solo or a violin concerto. The
                young Latins discussed many subjects including the political and social conditions in the world. They
                would often spend hours philosophizing over books they had read or writing down these thoughts to
                contribute to the next issue of the journal. Today some copies of the "Prairie Blume" still exist.

                At the outbreak of the Civil War the activities of the organization declined as many members joined the
                military. After a few more years the society was discontinued entirely.

                    JUDGE WILLRICH'S DEATH

                    When the news came to Winchester that Judge Willrich had died Wednesday morning, it was very
                    unwelcome. Judge Willrich had many friends in this part of the county, and he always found a hearty
                    welcome when he came to mingle with us. We know, and everyone knows, that eventually, this debt is to
                    be paid by us all, but we decline to have it thrust upon us.


                                                               26
During his career as county judge of Fayette county, Judge Willrich found many loyal supporters in this
section; they regarded him as their friend and many are the friendly deeds he did for them. Personally,
we sincerely regret his loss; and to his widow and other relatives we offer our sympathy.

Dresden, Germany,
June 24, 1923

Editor Journal:
On Friday, June 22d, Mrs. Watson, Gerda Olive, Judge and myself left Oldenburg for a tour of some of
the famous places in Eastern and Southern Germany. Our first stop was at Lueneberg, where we visited
briefly with a cousin of the Judge's, then to Hildesheim, which teems with the things that most interest
us; legend, folklore houses of ancient date, and customs of other days. The one thing there, which all the
world knows about, is the one thousand year old rose bush. It is to be seen in the court yard of this Dorn,
and its story is connected with the foundation of that church.

I'm not a souvenir hunter, but a number of small sprigs have dropped from the main stalk, and I am going
to preserve the one I picked up for Mr. Heintze, knowing how he treasures and appreciates such
things.**

The Rathshaus is most interesting, the frescoes are of a symbolic nature, and all tell in some way the
early story of Hildesheim. We had a bottle of wine in the Rathskeller, this being included in any order
there, and were shown about this portion of the building - the celler, I mean.

The houses are most noticeable, going up into peaks, with small windows peeping out of the extremely
slanting red tiled roofs. One need not to be told that they are very old; there are whole streets of them,
special attention being attracted to the small house called the "Inverted Zucker-hut". In Hildesheim we
first met up with young people, boys and girls, most of them with packs on their backs. The Judge is
always eager for information, and talked with a man who was in charge of the boys thinking he was a
teacher. He was a merchant in charge of the "North German Merchants' Jugentag." I have one of their
programs before me, and note that it says from June 23 to 26 will be spent in the beautiful old town of
Hildesheim. These boys are to be merchants and the Judge enjoyed talking to them, as they enjoyed his
conversation. We met up with the crowd often during our sightseeing that day.

We spent the night in Braunschweig, and attended the theatre. The Judge didn't like the shave and
massage he got there and could not help but make comparisons with our home barbers. He became quite

                                           27
grouchy after this bit of unsatisfactory treatment, and I fear, will always retain and unpleasant memory of
Braunschweig - otherwise, Brunswick. We took an early train for Leipsig, the one great object of interest
there being the mighty war memorial. It is the largest of Germany's war memorials, on the scale of the
pyramids, one might say, and far beyond mere words of mine to describe.

This is Sunday, being a most beautiful day in point of weather we saw on the one hand, gay parties
filling the trains and going to the country for a day in the open, and on the other hand the men and
women in the fields, literally, "making hay while the sun shone."

At Leipsig we called up our American consul, Mr. De Soto, not that we needed his services, but to give
him greetings from a mutual friend, and his comrade in the service, H. C. von Struve, some years ago a
young law student at La Grange and a member of our household. Mr. de Soto managed to locate us at
the station, which is said to be the largest in the world, but he stated it wasn't so difficult since he saw the
grip which had been lettered by Mr. Rose: "George Willrich, La Grange, Texas, U.S.A." He was most
courteous and regretted that he couldn't have shown us some real attention - our time was short. We left
this place at six o'clock. Our friend, Mrs. Watson, conducts the party and knows the ways and means of
doing things here. She visited these places only recently, which gives her added advantage of taking us
at once to the object of interest without loss of time.

Upon our arrival in Germany the mark stood at 150,000 to the dollar, now it is 90,000. When we pay a
few thousand marks for a meal, we cannot convince ourselves that it is only a few cents, what we'd in old
La Grange would call ridiculously cheap. Another great service Mrs. Watson does for us , is managing
our finances, far beyond us, although it is really only about twenty dollars in our money.

Mrs. George Willrich

** Had it been so willed, Mr. Heintze would have been granted a lease on life until your return, and your
thoughtfulness would have brought from him a thankful smile. But, he has joined the great majority, and
there are many who mourn as you will, at the knowledge here given. - Editor

Nuernberg, Germany,
June 27, 1923.

Editor Journal:
We came to Nuernberg from Berlin, passed through a most picturesque part of Germany, several hundred
miles, since it is an all-day trip. There were castle-tipped hills, almost mountains, in the background, and
since the sun was shining, the people were very busy in the hay fields, in the foreground. It has been
raining so much that they are kept busy trying to save their hay. This activity added interest to the
picture for us and the brightness made the perspective perfect. There was so much to see that the Judge
took his seat by a window and wouldn't listen when we called him to look at the other side, saying it was
all he could do to keep up with one side.

The train service is splendid, but trains are generally crowded at this time. We didn't happen to get one
with a diner, so found variety in making the stations for Frankfurters and beer, or whatever was to be
had. This is vacation time in Germany and everywhere there are people, singly, in couples or groups
with packs on their backs, going from place to place. Teachers and children go about in this way; we had
our picture taken with such a group in Dresden. The children were all in for the lark and hastily climbed
upon the gigantic piece of statutary that was to be the background.

People have a time keeping up with the money, and inquiries are made daily by everybody as to how the
dollar stands. As foreigners we are charged double, and then it amounts to very little, about twenty-five
cents each for an extra good meal. The Judge enjoys talking to the people, and we have enjoyed meeting
many in the train. The coupes have room for six or eight generally. The French "adieu" is entirely out,
everyone says "auf wiederschen". On entering the hotel you are greeted by each of the attendants, and
every morning the same.

At Potsdam the castle used by the late emperor, is open to the public since 1918. It was built by
Frederick the Great, and rivals "San Souci". The body of the late empress rests in a mausoleum near by,
facing a rose garden; this, according to her request, it is said. The casket is to be seen - the only one
there - and fresh flowers, too. There does not seem to be the least sympathy for the late emperor or
interest in him, which some account for by his marriage.

The richest treasures in Europe are to be seen in the castles; the "Gruene Gewolbe" in Dresden is the late
king of Saxony's storehouse of jewels and works of art, other than paintings, and rivals Ali Baba's cave in
richness. The articles, or most of them, were gifts to the king of Saxony through the ages, by other
potentates.

This city is known - to us - as a toy manufacturing center. It was fortified, and the ancient towers -
immense structures - are to be seen here and there. One is directly opposite this modernly equipped
hotel.

Sight-seeing is very hard work, but Mrs. Watson is able to save us annoyance in every way. She attends
to the tickets and gets us about in short order, where, left to ourselves, precious time would be consumed
in making inquiries. Muenchen, or Munich, is our next stop before going north again for Oldenburg;
from there we will go to Bonn on the Rhine. Some say there are difficulties in traveling in that section,
but we will be with relatives. Until then.
Mrs. Geo. Willrich.

ATTEND THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS AT NEW ORLEANS

Mrs. Geo. Willrich, Miss Olivia Schaefer, Mrs. Arthur Pohl and Miss Ida Reichert of La Grange, and
Mrs. Marie Lanaux of California, spent the past week in New Orleans, in attendance upon the Eighth
National Eucharistic Congress.

Incidentally, points of interest in the old historical city were visited, and the memory of Jackson's defeat
of the British general and his horde of soldiers recalled. The historic battle of New Orleans was fought
Jan. 8, 1814, two days after the treaty of peace had been signed at Utrecht. Communication was not as
fast then as it is today.

Memoriam In Mention To Mrs. Willrich

Mrs. Olivia Tuttle Willrich widow of the late Judge George Willrich, died after a brief illness abed,
Tuesday of last week. Announcement of her death created many expressions of regret, regret that she
who had ever been at the call of service in civic work, should have been called hence. Age of the
departed was not given thought.

Mrs. Willrich, born Olivia Tuttle, a daughter of a pioneer citizen of Fayette county, who came from
Rochester, New York, a century ago, was born at Pin Oak, southwest from LaGrange, removing to
Flatonia with her husband after their marriage, later coming to LaGrange where Judge Willrich, first
practicing law, later serving the county as county attorney and for 16 years a county judge, made his
home. Denied the happiness of children being born to this union, Mrs. Willrich took to her care and for
education, those whom she desired to assist.


                                            29
Brilliant of mind, capable as a writer, and always willing, both in her church work and in her literary and
civic work, she aided many worthy enterprises of the city. Friends never found her reluctant, she
appeared where her services were welcomed and where such service could be of benefit.

Family connections being identified, first with the struggle of the colonists, she was recognized as a
daughter of the American revolution; with her father removing to the South and both her husband's father
and her own identified with the Confederate army she devoted much time in keeping the organization
known as Daughters of the Confederacy active, and served officially in the local chapter; her name was
also connected with the Daughters of the Texas Republic. Active in church work, affiliated with the
Catholic church, she was constantly aiding and abetting some worthy effort in behalf of that church and
was instrumental in organizing the Mothers' Club of the Sacred Heart Parochial school at LaGrange.

Interested in the preservation of the tomb on Monument Hill south of LaGrange, she served for many
years as president of the Monument Hill Memorial Association; due to her efforts, assisted by other
members of the Association, beauty was restored to the sacred spot and a memorial tomb was erected
over the bones of the Men of Mier and Dawson's men who fell at Salado Creek, near San Antonio.
Never unwilling, never too tired despite the constitutional ailment that was her's, she joined with the
Catholic Women in keeping the National Council of Catholic Women, Brenham District, active. The
office of president of that organization was in her charge when she was stricken by her last illness. She
was arranging to attend the meeting that was to be held Sunday, November 23, at Galveston. Death
interfered. Due to her knowledge of business, parliamentary law and the work that women can do, she
became a member of the Business and Professional Women's Club of LaGrange.

Thursday morning Requiem Mass was celebrated at the Sacred Heart church by Rev. S. A. Zientek.
Following the Mass Rev. Zientek review-ed the life of Mrs. Willrich, and in an eloquent tribute, spoken
with emphasis and with sincerity pointed to the many deeds of good she had committed during her near
to four score years and ten.

Attendance upon the obsequies was large; friends who were associated with her civic endeavors, which
included the Garden Club of La Grange, and relatives of both her husband and her immediate family,
were present. The last respects were paid at the cemetery where beautiful flowers covered the couch
under which she will sleep.

Among those attending the funeral services, and coming from a distance, the following (which is only a
partial list) are given:
L. W. Kemp, Mr. and Mrs. C. C Shumway of Houston.
Misses Edna J. Tuttle, Helen Tuttle, Marion Tuttle Brazelton of San Antonio.
W. E. Schmid, Emily Schmid, Hilda Schramm, Mrs. James F. Carroll of Brenham.
Mr. and Mrs. John Tuttle, Mr. and Mrs. Roscoe Tuttle of El Campo.
Miss Rosalie Gutowski of Chapel Hill.
Miss Lizzie Hubbard and Clarence Hubbard of Hills Prairie.
Mrs. W. Tait, R. E. Tait, Mr. and Mrs. William Tait of Columbus.

when death claimed him. Known to all and beloved he will be sadly missed. Judge Willrich, we are informed
was about eighty-six years of age.

           While ailing for several years the death of Emil Richers, Sr. which occurred at the family home south of
           town, November 10, came as a shock, none expecting so sudden an end. He had about decided to
           remove to Bay City, when his condition grew steadily worse and his end came hurriedly.

           Emil Richers was born in Germany, and in 1846 came to America. At all times he was identified with
           the progress of La Grange, was its mayor in the sixties, and for many years a merchant. He was united in
           marriage with Miss Elise Huebner and to them were born twelve children, two of whom died in infancy.
           The ten children living are: Mesd. Geo. Kehrer, and F. A. Otto, Houston; Mrs. R. A. Kehrer, Bay City,
           and Misses Regina and Francis Richers; the five sons are John, Victor, Louis who is married and Gust.
           and Alfred, all grown. Four sisters, Mrs. P. Nordhausen, Miss Hermina Richers and Mrs. H. A. Eck of
           Bluff and Mrs. C. Hubrich of Berlin, Germany, and one brother, Robert Richers of Bluff, beside his
           widow, also survive.

           In his passing away, the county has lost one of its early and energetic settlers. The remains were placed
           to their last rest at the Cedar cemetery last Thursday, a large following witnessing the sad rites. May he
           rest in peace. To his widow, his children and other relatives, we offer our sympathy. A Friend.

           Card Of Thanks.

           We desire in this manner to express our thanks to all who were so kind to us when death claimed our
           husband and father last week. To Dr. R. H. Knolle for his untiring efforts and to Rev. R. Heise for his
           words of condolence so beautifully expressed and to the friends who brought the floral offerings we
           desire to have you know we appreciate all you have done. In this our sorrowing hour, you have come to
           us, and we say again, "thank you."

           Mrs. E. Richers and Children.

           Geo. Huebner

           This country has furnished numerous instances where men with only limited education, but with practical
           sense have risen to the brightest walks of life. Not schooling, but practical common sense is the key to
           success. Geo. Huebner is and eminently practical man. During his early years as a teamster he had the
           chance to become acquainted with the ways of life. His shrewd observation developed in him a sound
           judgement. On the road, from his fellowmen and from nature, but not from books, he gathered his
           information. His knowledge comes from the first source. And he not only has a fund of practical
           knowledge, but also knows how to express his views with energy and clearness. He is an interesting
           talker. The writer has heard with deep interest his views on road building and road improvement and he
           must confess that he never has heard sounder views on this subject than those expressed by Geo.
           Huebner. But not only on this, he has sound views on almost any question. From 1898 to 1900 he
           served one term as county commissioner. When he retired from this office, declining to stand re-
           election, it was the general verdict of the people that they never had had a better commissioner. The
           writer agrees fully to their verdict and is of the opinion that a better man, a man with sounder judgement
           and greater common sense can not be found for that office.


                                                      35
Geo. Huebner was born at the Bluff settlement August 16, 1851. His parents were John A. and Pauline
(Willrich) Huebner. They came to this country from Germany while quite young. His father came from
Bavaria, and first immigrated to Texas in 1836, but on account of Indian raids he went back to New
Orleans without settling in Texas. He returned in the early 40's and then settled in the Bluff settlement
where both parents remained till their death.

Geo. Huebner worked with his father on the farm, went to school and drove team. He acquired quite a
reputation as one of the most skillful teamsters of the county, for it required skill to handle six to eight
teams of oxen. After the war, he married Miss Lisette Warnken, the daughter of a prominent old settler
at the Bluff. This union was blessed with six children: Louis, Helene, Annie, George, Ellie, and
Augusta.

George Huebner is a prominent successful farmer of the county. From 1898 to 1900 he served the
county as commissioner which office he filled with great efficiency to the satisfaction of the people.

Two Surviving Members of Fayette County Ox-Team Caravan to Mexico

Memories of the days when great cotton caravans meandered through miles of bandit-infested mesquite
and cactus to bring fantastic profits to their owners still live vividly in the minds of George Huebner and
John Speckels now living in La Grange. These two are the only living survivors of the Fayette county
crew who so deftly handled ox-teams with the chant, “Haw”, “He”, and “Gee.” The redoubtable two
have lived to see this mode of transportation superceded, first by railway, then by truck, and now by the
unbelievably fast air express. Not that they are impressed by these fast moving contraptions. Oh, no!
They see in the slow moving ox-teams which they so skillfully manipulated, disciplinary value to the
young entirely absent in the breezy transportation used by the younger generation. In fact, these
stalwarts attribute much of the jazziness of the present generation to the devilishly fast machines which
enables the young folks to be “On again, off again, gone again, Flannigan.” These hardened ox-team
drivers further contend that the hazardous occupation of hauling cotton to Mexico during their ‘teen
years when boys of today haven’t yet finished high school, developed in them brawn and grain and
fortitude to see a disagreeable thing thru. These two boys, all in their eighties and as tough as pine knots,
are brilliant examples of the efficacy of their “take ‘em young and treat ‘em rough” theory.

George Huebner, one of the two who did teamstering duties during the sixties, has a remarkable memory
and a ready flow of picturesque words. He lives about twelve miles from La Grange on a rich black land
farm, an inheritance from his pioneer father. Near his home is the burial ground of the unfortunate Men
of Mier, who were executed in Mexico and those of the Dawson Massacre. Members of the Huebner
family were present at the burial in September, 1848.

Until recently, Huebner’s physical vigor was a match for his alert mentality. A year ago, against the
advice of his children, he attempted to break a wild horse which promptly threw him. An injured leg
now hampers his movements but in no way diminishes his remarkable energy.

Huebner has no patience with the mamby-pamby “finickyness” of the present generation. “I wonder”, he
says, “How they would have survived just one trip to the Mexican border.” He made five. “The dust”,
he continues, “was awful – like a dense cloud. We looked like mounds of earth slowly moving along.”
Huebner’s description of the dust menace is borne out by a story appearing in the Houston Tri-Weekly
Telegraph of April 29, 1863. “The drought extending from the mouth of the Rio Grande to within thirty
miles of the Nueces, has proved to be the most thorough vegetation destroyer of any kind that has visited
the country in years. The country begins to look as if seared with red hot irons. Surface water sink holes
give a feeble supply of water highly impregnated with offensive gases and saline properties. Oxen by
droves are falling by the wayside, never again to bear the yoke or put their shoulders to the cotton loaded
wheels. Rain we must soon have or the transportation jig will assuredly be up; the dust of the earth
filling the eyes, nose, mouth and hair – making one feel gritty often and dusty always – dust of which a
man eats his peck monthly and breathes daily – a terrible, inhuman, diabolical dust. A kingdom for a
shower is the standing offer.” And not a shower bath, girls.

In his smooth flowing style, Huebner tells the following story of his cotton hauling experiences:

“Slave owners in Fayette county gave the Confederacy all the cotton they could spare. Those not owning
slaves were forced to suffer confiscation of one-half of their cotton crop. Hauling cotton was a branch of

                                            36
military service that found favor among some Fayette county citizens; for, in spite of the long, hazardous
journey, it was safer than serving in the army. Before being permitted to haul cotton, the teamster had to
procure a detail, a contract with the government which pledged the teamster to haul at least five bales of
cotton to Mexico, the round trip not to take longer than three months. The contract provided that certain
contingencies such as a broken wheel, lost oxen and failure to secure food for the animals would be
considered legitimate reasons for a tardy return. Some of ----------

------- abandoned the ox-team, and proceeded on by steamer to New Orleans where they joined the
Union forces. These men later drew fat pensions. Christian Lomaun, and expert ox driver of the sixties,
whose partner left his ox team in Brownsville, performed the unusual feat of driving back both ox-teams
from the border.

Since it was impossible to maintain a check on the drivers, killing time systematically was the order of
the day among some of them in order to increase the time between trips and to postpone compulsory
military service. The teamsters received for services rendered, twelve cents per pound of cotton
transported – but in Confederate money.

Fayette county teamsters hauled to Mexico not only cotton raised in Fayette county, but also cotton that
was raised in East Texas and in Louisiana. Cotton raised in these two sections was not hauled directly to
Mexico, but was dumped at certain convenient concentration points, from which, it was relayed to its
destination. These points were Alleytown, Bernard, Columbus in Colorado county, and La Grange and
Round Top in Fayette county. There were two cotton agents in Fayette county, Judge J. C. Stiehle,
stationed in La Grange, and A. Meerscheidt, at Round Top. Cotton sent to Fayette county was hauled to
one of the following places for re-shipment to Mexico: Brownsville, Mier, Rancho Davis, Laredo or
Eagle Pass.

A cotton convoy usually consisted of from three to fifteen wagons. From five to seven yoke of oxen
were necessary to pull one wagon. It was necessary for teamsters to take along sufficient food for the
entire trip, for often food was not available. Procuring enough food for men and oxen was often quite an
undertaking.

The difficulties of the Confederate, state and county governments were by no means ended when the
cotton had been hauled to the border. Here the cotton was likely to seized by the Mexicans, the Federals,
or even by the Confederates. On one occasion a convoy of eighteen wagons from Fayetteville was
captured by Mexican bandits. The Mexicans stripped the teamsters of everything - - cotton, wagons and
ox-teams. The men had to thumb a ride home or walk. Bryan Lane, an unfortunate member of this
party, was killed by the Mexicans and, as a warning to future teamsters, was buried with his hands and
feet sticking out of the ground.

The Fayette County Commissioners in 1863 conceived the idea of buying cotton and selling it to Mexico
for relief of the county’s destitute war widows and orphans. In accordance with this plan, they bought
thirty-two bales of cotton from William J. Russel to haul it to Mexico. At King’s Ranch, the party was
seized by General Bee, who had been forced to evacuate Brownsville as a result of the Federal invasion.
Negroes, teams and cotton, according to Russel, were impressed into service by General Bee, who
compelled Russel to sell him the cotton at fifty cents per pound, Confederate money. When Russel made
his report to the Commissioners’ Court, they agreed to let him keep the money given him by Bee as a
remuneration for freight charges.

Still another large shipment of cotton that was a total loss to the owner, belonged to William Neese of
Warrenton. He had sent thirty-eight bales of cotton to Mexico with the following teamsters in charge: J.
C. Moss, F. Holman, Conrad Tieman and Mano Garbardes. In Brownsville, Neese’s cotton was taken
away from him by order of General Brown, the Federal Commander in charge of the Forty-third Indiana
Infantry, the Sixty-second Ohio (a colored regiment), and the Second Texas Regiment. It was the
colored Major of the Ohio contingent who actually took possession of the cotton.

The fraud in the cotton business which aroused such indignation among the soldiers and patriotic citizens
of Texas was not entirely absent in the Fayette county teamsters’ trade. A Confederate law prohibited
teamsters from carrying more than ten bales a trip, and special agents were placed at Flatonia and at
Gonzales to supervise the transportation. By splitting with them, it became an easy matter to arrange
with the agents to carry an extra bale or two, and with cotton selling at forty cents per pound, such a
rascally procedure was highly profitable.

The second of the surviving teamsters, John Speckels, eighty-five, and a peppy as a sophomore, recalls
that the Confederate government sponsored the first trip of cotton hauling that he made to Mexico. The --
----


                                           37
unsatisfactory schedule, Speckels, explained, was due to the fact that the necessary food for the men and
oxen through the long desert stretches along the last part of the journey was not promptly furnished by
the Confederate government. During the waiting period, perhaps the most satisfactory of all to the men,
hunting parties were organized, which netted rich bags of wild turkey and plenty of deer. Deer and
turkey meat with rye coffee and bread made a satisfying meal. The Speckels lad was unfortunate and
contracted measles on the trip. A rain storm came up and the sick boy spent the night trying to hold a
flapping wagon cover back in place. He suffered a relapse and as a result his hearing today is slightly
impaired.

The exhausted men and oxen finally reached Eagle Pass. The place named as a cotton depot by the
Confederate government. Here the Confederate officials ordered machinery to be placed on the wagons
and delivered in San Antonio on the return trip. A sturdy band of German farmers, all neighbors of his
father, were Speckel’s next companions on a cotton hauling trip to Mexico. By agreeing to turn over
over one-half the profits to the government, Speckels secured permission to take cotton to Mexico. The
hazardous journey was safely negotiated. The cotton was sold in Rio Grande City for thirty-one cents
per pound. The youth carried the money paid him for his father’s cotton (in Doubloons) safely in his
belt. The same financial success that attended Speckels’ trip to Mexico has followed him throughout
life. His business ability has made profitable all his ventures. Speckels, in addition to the part that he
played in transporting cotton during the Civil War, has assisted materially in the industrial development
of Fayette county. He represented his county in the State Legislature during the years 1895-97.

Brownsville, on Texas soil, and Matamoras just across the Rio Grande, on the Mexican side, formed the
hub of the contraband cotton trade during the war days. These two places became the Sodom and
Gemorrah of the Southwest. It was said of Brownsville that it was at that time the rowdiest town in the
most lawless state of the Confederacy. And Matamoras, her sister city and Mecca for the riff-raff and
adveuturers of three nations, did her worst to outdo her American twin in sin. As a result of the cotton
boom, Matamoras mushroomed in population from eight thousand to forty thousand almost overnight.
Men made millions in the cotton business. The Stillman and Ranger fortunes are brilliant examples. The
Ranger Brothers bought 650 bales of cotton from the Willis family in Houston, at six cents a pound. The
Willis’ were forced to sell at a sacrifice to prevent confiscation by the Confederates, but neither side
could confiscate cotton owned by Gus. Ranger because he was a German Jew and an alien. He carted the
cotton at once to Matamoras, from whence he succeeded in shipping it to England when cotton prices
were at their peak. He was said to have received the fabulous price of a dollar and eighty cents per
pound. He became later one of the “cotton kings” of the world.

People from every corner of the globe rushed to Matamoras, lured thereto by fantastic tales of immense
fortunes made with effortless ease. Union sympathizers and draft evaders drank beer with cotton agents,
importers and merchants of all nations. There was just one person who was “persona non grata” and that
was an abolitionist. Any person was privileged to shoot him down at sight, and all the year-round was
open season on these vermin and conviction for such sport was unknown.

Business was good in Matamoras during the war. Importers who opened with well-stocked shelves often
had to close within a week because their merchandise stocks were completely sold out. The town was
filled to overflowing with goods of all descriptions, and people rented and moved into thrown-up
shanties. Even then, constantly arriving merchandise could not be housed. Owners were forced to stack
their goods on the ground and expose it to nature in the raw – which is never mild. Ingenious Yankees
shipped in a big lot of tarpaulins which were hired out to the merchants at a dollar a night. Harrassed
merchants used them to cover a valuable store load of imported goods.

Such is the picture painted by George Huebner and John Speckels of the thriving business in contraband
cotton hauling and trading between Texas and Mexico during -------- .

"Death Claims Aged Native Born Citizen of Fayette, Monday"

Although in failing health for the past ten days, yet ever in a cheerful mood, even until Sunday night, and
entertaining visitors in his usual friendly manner, George Huebner, one of the oldest native born citizens
of Fayette county, died at his farm home shortly after the midnight hour of Sunday. He seemed to know,
however, that the oil was fading fast, and accepted the responsibility with grim resignation.

George Huebner was an interesting character; born on what was in the early days of the county known as
the Bluff, on a farm November 6, 1851, he grew to manhood on that farm. During the more than 84
years, in which he lived in Fayette county, he was very observing and knew much of its history, which he
ever delighted to refer to when visited by relatives and friends.

                                           38
George Huebner was a mere lad when he became a teamster in 1863, and one of which carried cotton
into Mexico. To dwell on the incidents of that period would require several columns, yet the Journal
refrains not from saying that his recitals of those days, when it required nerve to be a teamster and when
one had to forever remain on guard against the seizure of the staple he was hauling by either the
Confederates, the Federals or the Mexican governments. Yet, all turned out well, and the then young
man grew in body, and in mind.

When death claimed George Huebner, it took the last member of the teamster force in this county; his
fellow teamster in the days that tried men's souls, was John C. Speckels, who died last year. With him
was buried Tuesday, the voice that often, very often entertained those who were seeking history and
adventure stories.

After the civil war closed, and reconstruction days followed George Huebner returned to the farm and
remained thereon; he was united in marriage with Miss Lizetta Warnken, early settlers of the Bluff
section, and farmed on the same farm first settled by his father. To this union ------- children, the first
born dying in infancy. The living children are: Louis and Miss Helen Huebner of La Grange; Mrs.
Forrest (Annie) McMillan of Ballinger; Geo. L. Huebner of Lane City; Mrs. G. W. (Ella) Albrecht of La
Grange and Miss Gussie Huebner, R.N., of San Antonio.

Surviving also, are one sister, Mrs. Eliza Richers of Bay City and three brothers, Andrew, Louis, and
Franz Huebner, all of near Bay City. George Huebner was the first to break the family tie of children
born to his parents. There are also nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild, and several nephews
and nieces.

George Huebner, prevailed upon to make the race for County Commissioner of Beat No. 1, entered the
race and was elected and served for one term (1899-1900) refusing to stand for re-election. In closing
the reference to an honorable and life-long citizen, the Journal refrains from giving many of the
interesting incidents of the eighty-two years in which he lived only a short distance from La Grange. In
bidding him to rest, we have given the last respects to one who lived in the immediate vicinity of La
Grange, ---------- the good of the county. May he sleep peacefully.

Mrs. Lizzie Huebner

Friday morning Mrs. Lizzie Huebner, wife of George Huebner, died at the family residence on Colorado
street, following an illness that had lasted for a period of months. Mrs. Huebner, it may be said, came to
her death as a relief from much suffering. Devoted to her children, her departure will leave a vacancy,
such as time alone shall heal. We deeply sympathize with the husband and the sons and daughters; death
comes into a home when we would strive to defeat its approach, but as the flowers bud and bloom in
Spring, and the leaves fall with the first blast from the North, so inevitably we must all pay the common
debt.

Mrs. Huebner, was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Warnken, early settlers of this section. For many
years the family resided upon a farm several miles from La Grange, and only a few years since removed
to La Grange. The separation or dissolution that has now occurred is the pang of sorrow that only those
who have experienced a similar affliction can well appreciate. She enjoyed the great privilege, however,

                                           39
            of seeing her children become grown, and to them was the comfort and solace that a dutiful child finds.

            Sunday afternoon they carried her remains to the new cemetery and placed them to rest; in attendance
            upon the last rites were sympathizing relatives and friends from the town and country and from
            neighboring cities. Beneath a bed of beautiful flowers she sleeps peacefully.

            The sympathy of the entire community is offered to the husband, the children, Misses Helen and Gussie,
            Louis and Mrs. Gus. Albrecht of La Grange, Geo. Huebner of Bay City, Mrs. Forrest McMillan,
            Ballinger.

            Great Cotton Country.

            A. E. Huebner, one of the largest land holders in this county, is very enthusiastic over Matagorda county
            and the prospects for her becoming one of the greatest cotton counties in Texas. He said that he and his
            two brothers came to Matagorda county in 1886 and that in 1887 planted their first cotton crop. This
            they kept up for several years and in all their many crops they did not experience a single entire failure,
            although one short crop was recorded. The best crop was one of two bales to the acre and the rest ran
            from one-half to a bale.

            In late years, however, the Huebner Brothers, whose holdings go beyond 10,000 acres of some of the
            finest land in Matagorda county, have been stock raising and what cotton they have raised has only been
            incidental. But Mr. Huebner says that cotton is not an experimental crop here by any means and that this
            county is as good for the staple, if not better, than any in Texas.

            He is a strong believer in diversification and gives an interesting account of what might be accomplished
            in this, the brightest Mid-Coast county.

            Andrew Huebner, Pioneer Cattleman Matagorda County, Dies At Age 94
            First Came To County In 1886 To Raise Cattle

            Mr. Andrew Huebner, pioneer cattleman of Matagorda County, died Thursday evening at 8 o’clock,
            following an illness of long duration. He was 94 years of age and until recently was still “riding the
            range” with the younger cowboys on his spread.

            It was in 1886, sixty two years ago, when Mr. Huebner was then a man of 32 with many tales of the Civil
            War still vividly in his mind, that he came to Matagorda County from Fayette County where he was born
            near La Grange. He began then to buy land in the county. In 1909 he moved his family here where they
            have lived since.

            Like many members of his family, he was extremely healthy with a constitution which allowed him to
            perform duties which would have felled many men younger. He thrived on outdoor life and hard work,

                                                       40
enjoying his roundups with the enthusiasm of a tender foot.

At 94 one would have considered him at a ripe old age, but he was four years a junior to his sister, Mrs.
Lillie Richers who is now 98. And besides Mrs. Richers there is a younger brother surviving, Mr. Franz
Huebner who is now 90. Both reside in Bay City. Another brother, Louis, preceded him in death. He too,
had reached near the ninety mark at the time of his death.

Mr. Huebner is also survived by two daughters, Mrs. Ada Hurst of Bay City and Mrs. Lola H. Brown of
Ft. Worth; one son, M. D. Huebner of Bay City and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Taylor Bros., are in charge of the arrangements but announcement of the funeral is withheld awaiting
arrival of relatives.

DEATH OF MRS. ANDREW HUEBNER.

After an illness of only a few days, Mrs. Loudie Taylor Huebner, departed this life on Friday morning at
11:30 o'clock. Mrs. Huebner had been sick only a few days when she was brought to the sanitarium here
for treatment.

Deceased was the wife of Mr. Andrew Huebner, one of the county's prominent farmer-citizens south of
town. She was born in Colorado county, June 10, 1855, being 59 years, 2 months and 24 days of age.
The family came here from Colorado county several years ago and soon were identified with the social
and religious life of the community, the deceased becoming a member of the Christian church in which
she was a devoted worker, with many warm friends among adherents of all the denominations.

Deceased is survived by husband and three daughters and two sons and several grandchildren. The
daughters are Mrs. Walter Brown of LaGrange, Mrs. H. J. Hauk of Valley Falls, Kansas, and Miss Ada
Huebner of this city. The sons are M. T. and M. D. Huebner, whose home is with the family on the
ranch.

Funeral services were conducted from the Presbyterian Church, Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, by
Reverends J. F. Carter and L. E. Selfridge and the remains followed to Cedar Vale Cemetery by a large
concourse of sorrowing friends of the family.

In Memory of Mrs. Andrew Huebner

Today heaven is richer than it was on yesterday; yesterday, Bay City was richer than it is today. A
mother, a fond and faithful mother, has gone from us to her eternal home and has left an earthly home
sad and desolate. Who can fill a mother's chair? Whose hand so soft and caressing as that of mother?
Mrs. Walter Brown, the eldest daughter in the home, is one of us--a member of our Missionary Society
and we want to here express our love for her in her great sorrow, and we will try to help her bear her
grief as only Christian companionship can. We, as the executive committee of the Missionary Society
have

Resolved, That we extend to Mrs. Brown, her father, sisters and brothers that love and sympathy in their
dark hour of sorrow that will help them more perfectly to trust in their Lord, their mother's God, for
guidance and direction. That we will emulate their mother in that seeing a duty, we do it, as she did it;
also

Resolved, That a copy of this tribute be furnished the family , a copy be furnished The Tribune and
News; also a copy be spread on the record book of the society.

Methodist Missionary Society

           Huebner, 91, who died at 11:30 PM Tuesday at his ranch home south of here.

           MR. HUEBNER, one of the three largest landowners in Matagorda County, had lived in the county 65
           years. He was born in La Grange and when he came to the county to settle, Bay City was not in
           existence.

                  Huebner Jr. and Mrs. Robert Coppock, both of Bay City.

                  Mr. Huebner was the first person to plant rice in Matagorda County. He also pioneered the building of an
                  irrigation canal system for rice growers of the county.
                  He and two of his brothers, Louis and Andrew, brought in the first sack of rice of the season for so many
                  years that it became a tradition in the county. Louis lived to be 88 and Andrew died at 94. He also
                  survived a third brother, George, who lived at La Grange.

                  Most of Matagorda Peninsula was owned by Mr. Huebner, who used it for winter grazing for his cattle,
                  of which he had one of the largest herds in the county.

                  Church here with the Rev. Jack Lancaster officiating and burial in the Cedarvale Cemetery.

                  The pioneer Matagorda County rancher and farmer died late Tuesday night, December 12, at his ranch
                  home south of town.

                  Surviving are three sons, Adolph and John A., of Bay City, Otto of Long Beach, Calif.; two daughters,
                  Mrs. Donald K Poole of Brazoria and Miss Pauline Huebner of Bay City; one sister, Mrs. Lily Richers of

                  Bay City.

                  Mr. Huebner came to Matagorda County 65 years ago and built up vast ranch holdings with his late
                  brothers, Andrew and Louis. He, with his brothers, also are reported to have farmed the first rice in this
                  county. Living to a ripe old age isn’t unusual in the Huebner family. Franz’s sister Lily, recently
                  celebrated her 101st birthday. His brothers – Louis and Andrew – lived to be 88 and 94 respectively.
                  The three brothers – a real part of Matagorda County history and tradition – were active in their work
                  until almost right before they died.

                   to them as such. Her interested friends and relatives had suggested that she remove to La Grange in
                   order to be near her, but no, she cherished the memories of the long ago, remained on the farm left her by
                   her parents, enjoyed raising fine stock, treated them humane and thus spent her last days, not in the old
                   folks home, but in a small cottage erected on the
                   highway several years ago. Miss Dencker was an educated woman, fond of music, of good voice, an
                   excellent pianist. Neighbor's children ever found a welcome at her home. She was born 21 August 1865.
                   The family consisted of Dr. and Mrs. Dencker and four daughters. Louise died in infancy; two, Mrs.
                   Gertrude Bauch and Mrs. Minna Bauch, each left two sons, Carl and Rudolph Bauch of Goliad, Fritz

“Black Beans of Death”
(From The American-Statesman)

It is a cold, gloomy day in March of 1843. A dismal wind startles weird echoes in the trees and canons of
mountainous country near Salado, Mexico – rising in the mountains and sweeping with vicious insistence down to
the little settlement where one hundred and seventy-six men are doomed to die.

In their hearts there is little hope of release. They sit in the stifling air of a rude shed, converted into a death
chamber from a barn, and wait orders to march before a firing line and surrender their lives for Texas. Awaiting
the surrender of their all – these who had scorned all other surrender as not befitting men who had sworn
themselves to win freedom for their state.

Their clothes were worn threadbare, their feet were sore and lacerated from those long days and nights on the
mountains without food or shelter while they sought the way back to Texas. Bodies were weak and helpless from
the long exposure and in their minds was no thought but the release death would bring. In the hands of the
Mexican general Santa Anna they hoped for no mercy.

Guards enter the room and silently place the men in heavy iron chains, ordering each to stand in line as he was
bound. No word is said – then one of the Mexicans holds an official looking document to the light and reads
orders that chill the blood of every man who heard them. They had expected death – death for them all according
to the will of Santa Anna. Their capturer, General Mexia, had written his relentless commander, asking freedom
for the prisoners, and Santa Anna had granted that only one man out of every ten would be shot and that the
others might be spared.

In the history of Texas is written many chapters of dramatic happenings, but none more powerful in ironic twists
of fate than the scene that followed the reading of the cruel orders.

An officer, holding an earthen mug in his hand, comes into the shed where the Texans were confined and bound
in chains. In the mug were one hundred and seventy-six beans, the number of the prisoners. One hundred and
fifty-nine beans were white and seventeen were black. The prisoners were each to draw a bean from the mug.

                                                             45
The black beans meant death.

To tell the rest would be only to repeat a story known to all Texans, for the destiny of the Mier prisoners – men
who dared to enter the enemy’s country out-numbered many times, to save their comrades captured by General
Woll at San Antonio – will be re-told and remembered through many generations.

It is from the lips of Mrs. Franciska Vogt of La Grange that the story was recently recounted with a new and
gripping angle on the well known incidents – for Mrs. Vogt is the one person living who was present and
remembers when the bones of these seventeen men were brought back to Texas soil and buried on the bluff
overlooking her home in La Grange. And it was on her 93rd birthday that she recalled that solemn ceremony of
1848, when as a child of 13 she rode bareback to the site where the Mier prisoners were re-buried with honor and
praise.

“Ah, I shall never forget how it looked – that procession of men riding mules and leading others with the bones of
the Texans slung in gunny-sacks across the backs of the animals,” she said, her eyes once more glowing with the
amazement she must have felt as a child. “They came right into town, and when I heard what was going to be
done, I remember I ran and jumped on my pony and raced to the top of the hill for the ceremony.”

“I do not remember much of what happened, except that it was all very solemn and quiet as the bones were
carefully and tenderly buried up there on the hill. Then the monument was put up – the big limestone tomb under
which are the remains of those seventeen men who drew the black beans of death.”

Mrs. Vogt recalled that she was unable to get astride her horse after it was all over – remembering, as she says,
more of the smaller details that made an impression on a young mind.

“I know it was some man from Austin who helped me – some nice man who held my horse and helped me swing
up to ride back home again, but I do not know who, though I still remember how he looked that day,” she said.

The little old lady who will soon reach the century mark also told the story of the man who took the black bean
drawn by a comrade away from him and died in his stead. The incident may be legend or true, but Mrs. Vogt
states that she has heard it all her life and believes its veracity. It is told that the first to draw the fatal lot was a
man with a wife and children back at home, and that his friend forced him to exchange the beans so that he might
live.

Though the names of this Damon and Pythias of Texas history may be lost in the maze of years, what a monument
to friendships that face life and death with equal unselfishness!

The burial of the Mier prisoners is only one of the incidents of early Texas history that can be told in the first
person by the gray-haired and smiling grandmother and great-grandmother of La Grange. She came to Fayette
county from Germany in 1847 with her mother and brothers and sisters, following the father George Willrich,
who had come the previous year and located a home. Mrs. Vogt tells that the state gave 300 acres of land to
every man with a family who settled in that country then – land as wild as if it had never been touched by man.

“These hills were thick with wild animals and rattle snakes, but I got used to them and remember riding all over
the country by myself as a child,” she relates. “I will always remember one time when I was going after the
horses for my mother and came up on a lot of commotion in the woods. When I got to a clearing, I saw six
wolves tearing at the body of a deer they had killed.”

Mrs. Vogt’s father was a prominent judge in the “old country,” and came to America with many other immigrants
during those years who sought freedom and prosperity in the new land. He had a large family of children whose
children and children’s children are numbered among the settlers of the state. Mrs. Vogt’s own children are Mrs.
Ernest Knigge of La Grange, with whom she makes her home; E. R. Vogt of Schulenburg, Julius Vogt of
O’Quinn, Mrs. Fritz Nollkamper, Fritz Vogt, La Grange.

The story of the Mier prisoners will again be placed before the people of Texas during the next legislature, it was
recently learned, as the senator and representative from that part of the state, Senator Gus. Rusek of Schulenburg
and Rep. James Pavlica of Flatonia, are to ask that 50 acres of land along the top of the bluff where the men are
buried, be purchased by the state for a state park and a memorial to their heroism. The land is available for
purchase at this time, and as the location is ideal scenically for a beautiful recreation resort, they will use all their

                                                              46
power to pass the bill creating the Mier park for Texas.

A monument already stands on the court house square at La Grange, erected several years ago by the state “to the
memory of the men who drew the black beans and were shot at Salado, Mexico, on March 24th, 1843,” and to
Capt. N. H. Dawson and his men who were massacred at Salado, Texas, in September of 1842. The remains of
some of these men are also said to rest with the Mier prisoners in the tomb at La Grange, brought back by the
group who went by mule train on their errand of such grim homage.

To follow the trail of these one hundred and fifty-six men who were spared in the fatal lottery at the haciendo of
Salado would be to wonder whether or not the man who saved his friend did not leave him the worse fate. Dying
of unbearable hardships on their march into Mexico City, wasting away in dungeons, shot while trying to escape
and a few finally winning their way back to Texas, the group one by one went the way of their comrades who
drew death from the glass of chance that day. But no matter what followed for them, it would surely be safe to
imagine that none experienced deeper agony of suspence, or grief for his comrades, than when they plunged their
hands into the little grains of matter, colored black and white, that meant a promised freedom or a black doom.

FRANZISKA VOGT
"Grandmother Vogt Passes Away"

Reaching the age of 95 years, 5 months and 7 days, Grandmother Franziska Vogt, one of our most interesting and
esteemed citizens closes the last chapter of her life 24 April 1931. She was born 17 October 1835 in Germany and
came to Fayette County with her mother, Mrs. Geo. Willrich, and sisters and brothers in the year 1847. Her
father, a prominent judge in the old country, had come over the year before to locate a home for the family.
Texas gave three hundred acres of land to every man with family who settled upon its soil, land seemingly
untouched by man, with wild beasts and snakes roaming at will. They went through many trials during these days,
and to hear grandmother recite some of the history of her younger days was interesting. In 1928 the Journal
reproduced an account entitled: "Black Beans of Death", a story told by the subject of this sketch on her 93rd
birthday anniversary, which had been published in the Austin American. She recalled the solemn ceremony of
1848, when a child of thirteen she rode horseback to the site where the Mier prisoners of war were reburied with
honor and praise, on Kreische's Bluff. After the death of her husband, John Vogt, 22 years ago, she continued to
live at the old home near O'Quinn, where her youngest son, Julius, now resides. About ten years ago she came to
live in her declining years with her daughter Mrs. E. Knigge of this city. It may truly be said of her, she won the
love of all with whom she came in contact, and will be greatly missed.

Mrs. Vogt was the mother of eight children, five sons and three daughters, of whom three preceded her in death:
Mrs. H. Schroeder of this city and Geo. Vogt of Schulenburg; Hans died at the age of 8 years. The living are:
E.R. Vogt of Schulenburg, Mrs. Fritz Nollkamper, Mrs. E. Knigge and Fritz Vogt of this city and Julius Vogt of
O'Quinn. Twenty-three grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, besides two step sisters, Mrs. Anna Gross of
San Antonio and Mrs. Louise Koehler of this city are among the sorrowing relatives. Interment took place at the
Cedar Cemetery Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. C.O. Boatman officiating.

IN MEMORY OF JOHN VOGT

When the visit of the death angel was made to the home of John Vogt, near Cedar, last week, Tuesday, September
14, 1909, the spirit of one of Fayette County's oldest and most beloved citizens journeyed to the far-off home to
dwell with the great majority who have gone before. The entire vicinage where he was most highly respected and
revered was wrapt in sorrow and heartfelt expressions of regret were frequent. John Vogt was born in Schleswig-
Holstein, Germany May 9, 1832, and when a lad of seventeen years emigrated to America, landing at Galveston
August 31, 1849. His journey to Fayette was made in the primitive manner of that time, by ox-wagon. For
several years after his arrival he earned his living by daily labor. In the year 1857, January 13, he was united in
marriage with Miss Franziska Willrich, one of the then popular belles of Cedar. The ceremony occured at the

                                                           47
home of Dr. Dencker, which home still stands and shelters a daughter of the doctor. After one year's residence at
this place, the family removed to the home which was the deceased's until the final call was made and he passed
out of the knowledge of earthly matters. The union was blessed with eight children, one of whom died many
years ago. The seven living are: Mrs. Hermann Schroeder of Cedar, E. R. Vogt of Schulenburg, Mrs. Fritz
Nollkamper of Swiss Alp, George Vogt of Swiss Alp, Fritz Vogt of La Grange, John Vogt of Cedar and Mrs.
Ernst Knigge of La Grange. Seventeen grand children and one great grandchild also mourn the loss of good old
Papa Vogt.

Wednesday morning of last week the funeral was held from the old homestead and the remains, followed by an
immense cortege, were conveyed to the Cedar Cemetery and laid to rest with beautiful and impressive
ceremonies. Rev. Kern, pastor of the Lutheran Church at Swiss Alp, spoke of the good qualities of the deceased
and commited his spirit to the care of the Maker. Judge Willrich, who is related to the family, also spoke at the
grave dwelling on the ennobling life led by his relative. Mr. Vogt was one of the Texas Confederate soldiers. At
the last reunion, held here in May, he was unable to take part. At a former reunion the remaining soldiers of what
once was a strong company were photographed. There were not many present but the picture shows the faces of
determined men. It was this picture the writer was shown when he last visited the home of the deceased. He
cherished this with the pride characteristic of the grizzeled old veterans of today, who, in their youth, shouldered
their muskets in a cause they believed right. It was at that time I learned to know more of Grandpa Vogt and to
love him for his goodness of heart and his consideration for the wants and rights of others. He is gone now
sleeping that long sleep that knows no awakening, but which is recorded as being the rest from which we will all
arise some sweet day to share the blessing of the Messiah.

                    SERIOUSLY ILL
                    Little Hope Held Out for Recovery of Patient

                    As we go to press the condition of Mrs. Hermann Schroeder, who has been ill for some time, is such that
                    little hope is held out for her recovery. Family relatives, nurse and doctor are doing all in their power to
                    stay the approach of death, but the inevitable is apt to follow ere this reaches our readers.

                    GONE TO HER REWARD
                    Death Claimed Another Good Woman After Long Illness.

                    Died Wednesday afternoon, Mrs. Margaret Schroeder, wife of Herman Schroeder, manager of the
                    Farmers Lumber Company. Mrs. Schroeder had been suffering for months and during the past five
                    weeks had been under the constant care of a trained nurse and physician. It seemed that the battle was
                    entirely one-sided, she grew weaker each day and finally; without a struggle lapsed into eternal sleep.

                    Mrs. Schroeder was the eldest daughter of Mrs. Franciska Vogt, widow of the late John Vogt, and was
                    the second of the children to die within a year. Our sympathy is offered to the husband and the son, John
                    Schroeder, and daughter, Miss Louise, and the brothers and sisters, and yet we cannot refrain from
                    saying, in addition, that our heart bleeds for the good old mother who has witness the going of her
                    children and mourn their loss.


                                                                48
As a good wife and mother, Mrs. Schroeder was known to many. Her greatest pleasure in life, in
addition to the attributes mentioned, was to do good to others. Willing to help, willing to give and assist
in the relief of those in need, she has left much to keep alive her memory and many who will miss her.

Her remains were placed to their last rest in the new cemetery Thursday afternoon, in attendance and
assisting in the last sad rites, being a very large number from the city and country and other towns. Rev.
Arnold officiating, paid a strong tribute to the deceased.

Death Comes After Year's Illness To Hermann Schroeder

Sunday, May 19, Hermann Schroeder, a highly respected citizen of La Grange, completed the 78th mile
post of his early pilgrimage; he was abed, and had been ill for more than a year, frequently rallying from
the weakening attacks and sufficiently so to permit leave of the sick room and a drive about the city.
Monday the oil of his life's lamp grew less, he struggled against the shadow, he died at 7:00 o'clock,
early evening.

Rev. Guy B. Duff, pastor of the Presbyterian church, officiated at the home and at the cemetery, Tuesday
afternoon, and interment was had at the new cemetery. Relatives, hundreds of friends, many from a far
distance and from the neighborhood of La Grange, paid reverence to one they esteemed highly while he
lived among them. The profusion of flowers, told one story, and the tributes another. Hermann
Schroeder, everybody's friend, honorable and upright in all things, was placed to rest.

Hermann Schroeder was born in Schwaan, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany May 19, 1857; he
emigrated to Texas at the age of 16 years, landing at Galveston, December 30, 1879, absolutely
penniless. Delighted with his new home, deciding to become a citizen of the United States, he took the
oath of allegiance later and remained a loyal citizen.

He was taken under the care and protection of his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. John Frederich Meyer of
Cedar, and helped with the he farm work. Later he purchased the Meyer farm, (200 acres) and continued
thereon until 1910. Proffered the position of manager of the Farmers Lumber Company, he accepted and
remained in charge of that institution until his enfeebled condition forced him to retire.

Unpretentious at all times; faithful and conscientious in his work, no greater tribute can be added than,
"he was a man to know and to respect."

Mr. Schroeder was united in marriage, October 20, 1878 with Miss Margarethe Vogt, eldest daughter of
the late John Vogt and wife Franziska Vogt, nee Willrich, of Cedar, Texas. Mrs. Schroeder preceded
him in death, April 3, 1918; with his daughter he lived on South Franklin street until beckoned to follow.

Mr. Schroeder is survived by his son John Schroeder and wife Pauline; his daughter, Miss Louise
Schroeder, Mrs. Marguerite Willmann and her husband Frank J. Willmann; one son, Fritz Schroeder,
died in infancy.

           County Surveyor E. R. Vogt, so The Journal has been informed, is on the sick list this week. Nothing
           serious, but sufficient to make him forsake his office duties for a few days.

           29 FEB 1940
           E. R. VOGT FAYETTE CO. RESIDENT BURIED MONDAY

           Mr. E. Rudolph Vogt passed away at the family residence here on Sunday, February 25, 1940. Death
           resulted from an injured hip and leg which was hurt when he fell about two months ago. Worn and weak
           from an active life, his frail body could not withstand the severe pain. "Judge" Vogt, as he was called by
           most of the people in the community, was born October 15, 1859, near Cedar, in Fayette County. He
           received his early education in the Fayette County schools and as a young man took private lessons in
           Civil Engineering. When he had reached the age of nineteen years, he started out to work as a surveyor
           and for 60 years he followed that profession.

           On December 6, 1883, he won the hand of Miss Anna Nollkamper, who has lived through these many
           years at his side. The wedding ceremony took place in Cedar. In the year 1888, he was elected to the
           office of county surveyor and he held that office for 50 years. For the past 38 years he had been justice
           of the peace in this precinct and during that term of years has had only two opponents. In the year 1918,
           when the American Party was so strong, he was the only county official who was re-elected to office. In
           his years of work as surveyor, he covered practically the whole of the State of Texas and as far as we
           know today, no lawsuits have ever occured over any of the surveys he made. "Judge" Vogt not only was
           active in the above mentioned professions, but he was one of the first persons to help organize the First
           National Bank of Schulenburg in 1916. He was one of the first to help organize the Bluff Mutual Fire
           Insurance Company, which is over fifty years old and still going strong. He wrote the by-laws, rules and
           regulations of that group of farmers. He was the man who helped establish all of the mail routes out of
           Schulenburg. There were many other projects which live on through this man, who helped found them,
           who is not with us any more. For the past 34 years he has made his home in the city of Schulenburg. One
           of the expressions which we have heard many times within the past few days is that: "He was fair,
           impartial and just in all of his dealings." No finer tribute can be given to a man. It will not seem the same
           here in Schulenburg to not see the "Squire" come down the street with his cane in his hand and his pipe
           in his mouth. He will be missed by his many friends who have gathered for years on Saturday afternoon
           to play a few games of dominoes. His wise council, given freely, to all those who need sound advice,
           will go begging. Our, and every other community, needs more men who will live the life of Mr. Vogt.
           He was a wonderful father and husband and did his all to make his family happy and contented.

           He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and Charter member of the Schulenburg Lutheran Church.
           Funeral services were held from the family residence on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock with interment in
           the Cedar Cemetery. Rev.Hornung and Rev. Kuretsch officiated at the last sad rites. Choirs of both the
           Lutheran and Methodist Churches sang the hymns. A large number of people from this and surrounding
           areas came to pay their last respects. Floral bouquets were numerous and very beautiful.

           Surviving to mourn his passing are: his wife Mrs. Annie Vogt; three sons: Charlie, Emil and Otto; two
           grandchildren: Charlie Vogt, Jr. and John Carrol Vogt; two brothers: Fritz Vogt of La Grange and Julius
           Vogt of Cedar, and two sisters, Mrs. Fritz Nollkamper and Mrs. Ernest Knigge, both of La Grange. We
           join with manv other friends of the family in extending our sympathy to the bereaved. Pallbearers were
           E.A. Bosl, Otto Brauner, Charles Matula, Alfred Olle, Henry Borchers
           and John Schroeder.

            Henry and Catharine Nollkamper, Sr. She was united in marriage at Cedar to E. Rudolph Vogt, who for
            many years was county surveyor and justice of the peace of the Schulenburg precinct. The couple moved
            to Schulenburg in 1894 and lived here since that time. Her husband preceded her in death on February
            25, 1940. Mrs. Vogt suffered a heart attack July 23 and was carried to the Youens Hospital the
            following Sunday, July 30. She passed away there on Tuesday, August 1, 1961 at 10:30 p.m. Although
            she had lost her sight and had been confined to bed for the past thirty years, she was extremely alert right
            up to the time of the attack. Survivors are three sons: C.A. Vogt, Sr. of Schulenburg, O.G. Vogt of
            Dallas and Emil Vogt of Arlington; two grandsons: C.A. Vogt, Jr. of this city and John Vogt of Dallas

           Fritz Nollkemper

           Struggling for the past month against the rapid approach of death, Fritz Nollkemper, aged 81 years, 2
           months and 26 days, died at the family home in La Grange, Tuesday afternoon, January 30. Funeral
           services were held Wednesday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock, Rev. R. Heise officiating and the Koenig
           Funeral Home in charge of the funeral. Pall bearers were Harry Vogt, Sequin; Emil Hagens, Gus.
           Knape, Emil Knape, Robt. Nollkemper, Swiss Alp; John Schroeder, La Grange, Robt. Vogt and John
           Balzer, Schulenburg. Interment was made in the Cedar cemetery, Wednesday afternoon.

           "Uncle Fritz" -- in the greeting manner in which the writer ever addressed him - came to La Grange 20
           years ago from Swiss Alp, where he had farmed for many years, purchased the Thos. C. Gregory home
           and lived in that home continuously since. Retiring from his labors on the farm, he spent the past twenty
           years in contentment, and with his companion of more than 53 years, enjoyed with the pleasant and
           agreeable years with friends and neighborly relatives. Unpretentious, always of a friendly disposition,
           his appearance upon our streets will be sadly missed. May he sleep peacefully!

           Born at Cedar, Nov. 4, 1858, the son of Hy. Nollkemper, Sr., he spent his boyhood days on the farm; in
           the year 1886, Nov. 10, he was united in marriage with Miss Charlotte Vogt, daughter of John and Mrs.
           Franciska Vogt, and located on a farm, near Swiss Alp, where they remained until 20 years ago when

           The present incumbent of the office of public weigher for precincts one and seven, with yard at La

           the time of his official life, and herewith asks for the further consideration of his candidacy for re-

           George Vogt Dead

           It was a distinct shock to this community when the word went out that George Vogt had died Saturday
           morning from blood poisoning, following a minor operation in Dallas about four weeks previous.
           Specialists had been summoned to his bedside and every thing that skilled physicians and faithful
           nursing could accomplish was done without avail.

           Geo. Vogt was born at Cedar post office, about fourteen miles from Schulenburg, on March 4, 1868. In
           1891 he was united in marriage to Lena Nollkemper and of this union five children were born, Olivia,
           Robert, Julia, Ruth, and George, Jr., all of whom survive him, together with his faithful wife, his mother,
           Mrs. Francis Vogt, of La Grange, who came to Texas in 1846, and is in her 82nd year, yet distinctly
           remembers the services attending the demise of the famous Dawson company near Bluff. He is also

                                                      53
survived by six brothers and sisters, Judge E. R. Vogt, of this city; Fritz Vogt, of La Grange; Julius Vogt,
who still lives on the old homestead at Cedar; Mrs. Schroeder, of La Grange; Mrs. Nollkemper, of Swiss
Alp; and Mrs. Knigge, of La Grange.

To the writer this is a deep personal loss, as during the few years of our friendship his unfailing good
nature has ever been a source of comfort, his sterling honesty and upright manhood an inspiration.
During the eight years he has been in business in this city his every business transaction has been
stamped with the mark of fairness to all. Now that his life work has been accomplished and the dark
curtain that hides the beautiful beyond from mortal eyes, has been softly drawn aside for his passage, the
sorrowing family and friends can console themselves with the knowledge that the God above, who
supervises our incoming and our outgoing with His infinite wisdom, has balanced his Book of Life and
written across the page those words of boundless meaning "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

The impressive Masonic service was given Sunday afternoon in the presence of a large number of friends
from all part of the county. The sermon was delivered by Rev. Paul Pieponbrok, and the Herman Sohns
lodge, of which he was a member, assisted.

Thus closes a life of unfailing devotion to his family, of unselfish service and uncompromising integrity
toward his fellowman. The sphere in which he grew to manhood and accomplished his life's work has
been the better for having known him and he enters the future life without fear, secure in the knowledge
that what his hand has found to do, has been accomplished to the best of his knowledge and belief.

            Death of Mrs. Vogt

            Thursday night, following an illness of but a few days, Mrs. Hedwig Vogt, wife of Fritz Vogt, died at the
            family home on Colorado Street. The untimely death of this good lady has caused many hearts to ache,
            and the sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved husband, the two sons, one a child of
            two years, and other relatives.

            Mrs. Vogt, whose maiden name was Sladczyk, was the daughter of Captain Sladczyk of Bluff and was

             Saturday afternoon the remains were laid to their last rest place in the new cemetery, and a very large
             number of relatives and friends being in attendance. The foral tributes were numerous and beautiful.

             Struck By Falling Tree

             Julius Vogt of the old Cedar neighborhood is suffering from the effects of an accident that came near
             costing him his life. While busily engaged Monday in felling a large tree on his farm, a cracking sound
             informed him that the oak would soon begin to fall. He ceased his labors and stepped out of harm's way,
             but discovered, to his dismay, that his little son would, unless hastily removed, be struck. It was while in
             the act of getting the little fellow away that the crash came, the tree carrying the father crushingly to the
             earth.

             Mr. Vogt was struck on the head, receiving an ugly wound which partially stunned him. His body and
             lower right limb were badly bruised. Medical aid was hastily summoned, and Dr. Knolle, of this city,
             accompanied by Fritz Vogt, repaired to the scene of the accident at once. The wound was dressed and
             the sufferer made as comfortable as possible.

             Julius is the youngest of the large family of John (now deceased) and Mrs. Francisca Vogt, old settlers
             and highly respected people of the Cedar community, and the last and only remaining member at the old
             neighborhood. His aged and widowed mother lives within a stone's throw of his residence.

Death of Gustav Groos
He Passes Away After Two Months Of Illness
A Cerebral Hemorrhage Was The Primary Cause Of Death
A Review Of His Life

After an illness of nearly two months Mr. Gustav Groos died at 5:20 o’clock yesterday afternoon at his residence
on Washington street.

Mr. Groos accompanied the T. P. A. excursion to Mexico last June. He returned about the latter part of the
month and on the way home was stricken with a cerebral hemorrhage, a blood vessel over the brain bursting,
allowing blood to rest on the brain. He was brought home in a serious condition and ever since has been confined
to his bed. Everything that medical skill and careful nursing could do has been done, but without effect.

About a week ago Mr. Groos became delirious and last Saturday consciousness left him and all hope of his
recovery was given up.

Yesterday morning he became much worse and sank rapidly until death relieved him of his suffering.

Mr. Groos was one of the most prominent citizens of San Antonio in financial and business circles, and besides a
large business acquaintances he has a host of friends who will be grieved at his death. His death was quite a
surprise to many. While it was known that he was ill, the fact of his condition being so serious had been kept
quiet.

The news of his death spread rapidly and soon a large number of friends began gathering at the home to offer
what condolence and assistance lay in their power.

Gustave Groos was born in Nassau, Germany, June 10, 1832, his father was C. E. Groos. In 1848 Mr. Groos, Sr.
and family moved to this country, landing in Galveston. From there they went to Fayette county, where Mr.
Groos purchased a farm and was engaged in that occupation for a number of years. In the spring of 1850 Mr.
Groos, accompanied by his brothers, went to Eagle Pass, where they were engaged in the mercantile business
until 1874, when they moved to this city. Here they opened a wholesale grocery business, which they carried on
for two years, and then embarked in the banking business, under the firm name of F. Groos & Co. Mr. G. Groos
has been a member of this firm ever since and actively engaged in the business. His business operations have
been successful and he has amassed quite a fortune.

Mr. Groos was married at Bluff, Fayette county, Sept. 28, 1865, to Miss Anna F. Willrich, daughter of a
prominent and wealthy farmer of that place. His wife survives him. They have seven children, Mrs. C. F.
Guenther, Mrs. Gus Giesecke, Otto Groos, Miss Minnie Groos, Gus J. Groos, Miss Lottie Groos and F. C. Groos.

Giesecke and Mrs. Adolf Giesecke of New Braunfels; also Mrs. Groos, who resides in Germany.

and these societies will attend the funeral.

THE OLD OAK WITHERS AND DIES

"As sturdy as the oak" - until the heavy hand falls and response is inevitable. So "Come unto Me all ye who are
weary, and heavy laden, and I will give thee rest."

OTTO WILLRICH, SR.
Born in Elsen, Hanover, Ger. February 19, 1845
Died at La Grange, Texas February 13, 1929
Aged 83 yrs, 11 mos, 24 dys

In paying a tribute to this good citizen I seek not to worm my way into the good graces of those who were his
dependents, as children, I refer to the man whom I have known since my early youth; I use the honorable name
"man" because, in the circle in which he lived he had the respect of every one who knew him, and never hesitated
to extend to me the right hand of fellowship. To have known him is one of the precious assets of mine. He
belonged to that class of citizens who have made the world a better place in which to live; the legacy he leaves to
his children is not measured according to his holdings, but in the standard of worth, which prompts those who
knew him well, to say: "This was a man." He scorned to do a dishonest act, and was a living example of the son
who believed it a valuable privilege to uphold, without stain - by act or speech - the name of his ancestors. From
his home, established when he took unto himself a mate, there was sent out a family of children who looked upon
the father as an example to emulate. Otto Willrich was a citizen who craved no honors; in his retiring manner of
living, not alone or unto himself; the doors were opened by the magic word of welcome to all who cared to enter.
And with endowment the Creator gives to the sturdy oak of the forest, to withstand the ravages of time and the
vicissitudes of life, he bore, with fortitude, whatever affliction there was visited upon him, realizing that the lot of
all men, like the cross to the Savior, must be borne. He accepted these edicts as they were tendered. And when
the Great Reader, of the Chart of Life, wrote the edict, January 26, 1922, that a companionship of 52 years should

                                                             61
cease, he bowed in acquescence, and saw Mama Anna, his wife, start on her celestial journey. All partings are
painful, he lived on, patiently awaiting the hour when his name would be announced; yet he manifested his usual
interest in all things, and stood ready, like the soldier of honor, to obey a command. The world will not stop
moving because he is gone; the world will not be changed, because of his going; there are too many of us still
here, but this vacancy his going has caused, will be sacred to those who bear his descendency, and it will be an
inspiration to them, because, Otto Willrich, Sr., was a worthy trustee, a guardian of the name entrusted to him.
He has passed to his sons and daughters, the sword of his father, of his grand-sires, and thereon is no tarnish. He
was a credit to his family name. The loving prefix of father, following that of a son and grandson, remains as a
memory in the circle in which he lived, and in the minds of relative and friend. I sincerely regret that my
enfeebled condition prevented my attendance upon the hour when they carried him to his resting place. I am glad
it was my privilege to have known him, I would have been happier to have been more closely associated with
him. The sympathy, at the loss of a father and brother, is expressed to his sisters, and to his children. B.F.
HARIGEL

Otto Willrich was brought to America by his parents when still an infant - only one year old. His parents settled
in the old Bluff section and took up farming. When Otto reached his fourteenth year, he was taken back to
Germany, in order that he might receive the advantage of the tutelage of earned educations at his birthplace, and
for four years he remained in Germany. Returning to Fayette County as a young man, and to the parental home,
he entered as a farmer and in the year 1870, was united in marriage with Miss Anna Kloss who made him a good
wife, became the mother of his children and helped to rear a very interesting family. Eleven children blessed this
union; the living children are: Mrs. V.C. Sladczyk, Otto Willrich, Jr., and Mrs. Augusta, wife of Geo. Schaefer -
La Grange; Geo. Willrich, farmer near La Grange, H. A. and Louis Willrich of Houston, and Miss Rita, who
nursed him in his declining years, and lived at the family home near the city. The children who preceded him
were: Mrs. E. Lueders, Miss Elise, also grown, and Fritz, aged 2 years. Mrs. Willrich died, as stated January 26,
1922. Two sisters and one half-sister also survive. These are: Mrs. Franziska Vogt, La Grange; Mrs. Anna Gross,
San Antonio; Mrs. Louise Koehler, La Grange. Mr. and Mrs. Otto Willrich, Sr., with their living children and
grandchildren present, and other relatives, celebrated the golden anniversary of their wedding, in the year 1920;
there are 18 grandchildren and one great grandchild who survive him. In attendance upon the funeral, held with
religious services by Rev. R. Heise, first at the home of his son-in-law, V.C. Sladczyk, Wednesday afternoon at
2:30, and the body taken to the Cedar Cemetery and placed by the side of his wife, were many, relatives and
friends - and the following from afar: Dr. Geo. Sladczyk of Port Arthur; Mr. and Mrs. S.S. Sengelmann of
Houston; H.A. Willrich and family; Arthur Sladczyk and Louis Willrich of Houston and Gus Gross of San
Antonio. Requiescat in Pace.

                    years, 3 months and 7 days old.

                                                                63
           V. C. Sladczyk was born and reared on a farm not many miles from La Grange, and was a son of the late
           Capt. And Mrs. V. J. Sladczyk, pioneer settlers of the Ammannsville community. He grew to manhood
           on the farm, and later engaged in the mercantile business, first here at La Grange and later at Kirtley,
           eventually returning to La Grange.

           Plain, honest, and fair in his decision on all matters, he held the good will and esteem of all who knew
           him. To him the friendship of a fellow being was a good asset and in his general conduct and demeanor
           he sought to maintain that friendship. Prevailed upon, some years ago to enter politics, he made the race
           for constable, and in that capacity served this precinct for several years.

           His health began to decline within the past three years, and that once active and vigorous body was
           compelled to slacken the usual pace. Adhering strictly to the medico's advice, and maintaining a
           determination to be of service, he traveled on. His friends well knew of his delicate health but, as it ever
           is, all hoped that he would be spared to family for many years.

           In the company of Mrs. Sladczyk, he left for Port Arthur where a son, Dr. George Sladczyk resides. It
           was while in that city that death relieved his lease on life. The body was brought to La Grange, Tuesday,
           and from his late home on Jefferson street the funeral was held, with interment at the new cemetery.

           Victor Sladczyk was united in marriage with Miss Margrethe Willrich, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
           Otto Willrich of the Bluff section; he is survived by his widow and the following children: Otto
           Sladczyk of Yoakum; Arthur Sladczyk of Houston; Fritz Sladczyk of La Grange and Dr. George
           Sladczyk of Port Arthur; Mrs. S. S. (Hilda) Senglemann of Houston and Mrs. W. B. (Viola) Loessin of
           La Grange. One brother, Hy. J. Sladczyk of La Grange, two sisters, Mrs. Hugo Ehlers and Mrs. Arthur
           Koehler of La Grange; and two sisters, Mrs. Wm. Ehlers of San Antonio, and Mrs. Ad. Kehrer of
           Schulenburg, survive. There are also five grandchildren.

           Silver Wedding Anniversary

           Thursday night of last week, Victor C. Sladczyk and wife celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of their
           wedding day, and in the celebration they were affably assisted by their relatives and several friends. The
           gathering occurred at the family home on South Jefferson street. Plenty of good cheer prevailed,
           refreshments and edibles were lavishly served and music, especially vocal added to the evening's
           enjoyment. "Hoch sollen sie leben" was lustily sung, in which all joined.

           Twenty-five years of congenial happy married life is a blessing not all can enjoy. As the years pass and
           age creeps upon us gradually we are more apt to recognize the real blessings and be thankful for them.
           The Journal congratulates the couple, and expresses the hope that their fiftieth anniversary will be
           celebrated with as much pomp and glory.

           A Sad Death


                                                       64
            Friday night Mrs. Anna, wife of George Willrich, Jr., of Bluff, died at the farm home, after an illness that
            had lasted about ten days. When first stricken, she was not believed to be seriously ill, but it was soon
            noticed that a surgical operation for appendicitis was absolutely necessary. Drs. Hoch and Schulze, after
            consultation decided to have the operation performed, and secured the services of Dr. Thomas of Taylor.
            The doctor arrived on the belated Katy, Thursday night, accompanied by a nurse, and the operation was
            successfully performed, but the patient never rallied, and peacefully passed away the next morning.

            The home, which had been such a happy one was broken, the mother of two little boys, aged four and
            two years, and one baby boy of seven months, has joined the great majority. Six years ago she stood by
            the side of her now mourning husband and blushingly replied in the affirmative to the officiating official.
            She was a good wife and mother and her departure has left a bleeding wound, one which will ache and
            pain for many days. May the Creator comfort the grieving husband, her brothers and sisters and protect
            the little motherless boys.

            Mrs. Willrich, whose maiden name was Witting, was born near Plum, January 30, 1888, and was the
            possessor of a legion of friends. Our sincerest sympathy is offered to the mourning relatives.

            Johnnie Koehler and Otto Willrich, while returning home after attending the funeral of Capt. Sladczyk
            Saturday afternoon, suffered the animal they were driving to run away. In turning into a small ditch the
            jolt threw Mr. Willrich out of the buggy, and in falling the young man sustained painful sprains in both
            ankles. At this writing he is still confined to his bed and beside the severe pain of the injured members,
            is battling with fever. Johnnie Koehler also received a sprained ankle.

            Mrs. C. H. Steinmann Fatally Injured In Wreck

            The shock experienced by close friends of the family of C. H. Steinmann and that of O. T. Willrich,
            when the news was received by telephone early in the afternoon of Sunday, that the automobile driven by
            C. H. Steinmann, had turned over three times on the concrete highway about five or six miles from
            Brenham, and that all occupants were injured, one fatally, can be easily imagined. It is deploring enough
            to be compelled to chronicle the incident, without giving a prolonged detail of the accident that claimed
            Mrs. Steinmann. The sudden termination of a drive to the Agricultural and Mechanical College at
            Bryan, which had all the pleasure stored for offering, is sufficient in itself to warrant the mention that it is
            most deplorable.

                                                         65
Mr. and Mrs. O. T. Willrich and little son, O. T. Jr., and their niece Miss Lorine Kruse, and Mr. and Mrs.
C. H. Steinmann had left La Grange early Sunday morning, their destination being College Station where
the son of each of the two families are in attendance upon the College. The trip from La Grange to
Brenham was uneventful; after a brief stop, a short meal, the journey was resumed, with Mr. Steinmann
at the wheel, Mr. Willrich and son alongside. In the rear seat on the right side sat Mrs. Steinmann, next
to her Mrs. Willrich and Miss Kruse. We pass the detailed mention except to state that , as told to the
Journal, Mr. Steinmann, finding his progress suddenly blocked by another automobile, crossing - the
driver of the other vehicle came in ahead of the Steinmann car - the highway, he swerved the car to the
opposite side and applied the brakes. It all happened in a moment. The Steinmann car ceased to travel
naturally, turned completely over three times and finally settled on its side.

All managed to crawl from the wreck except Mrs. Steinmann and Mr. Willrich; the latter was helped to a
seat and while still conscious complained of pain and his head dropped onto his breast. Mrs. Steinmann,
partly out of the car was bleeding profusely and her husband, frantic, sought to compel her to speak;
blood gushed from her face and head, she lived only a few moments. All were taken as soon as possible
to the Milroy Memorial Hospital at Brenham, where surgical and medical aid was given, but upon
examination by the surgeons, it was found that Mrs. Steinmann was beyond all earthly help. Her body
was taken in charge by the Brenham undertaker, and prepared for burial.

Mr. and Mrs. Willrich remained at the hospital, Mr. Willrich, according to all information obtainable,
received a dislocated vertebrae and was promptly placed in firm leather bandage, X-ray examination did
not disclose a break, but a dislocation; Mrs. Willrich, suffering internal pain and injuries to limb was able
to see some of the many inquiring friends, and Miss Lorine, whose foot was cut, was also retained at the
Hospital. Little O. T., the son, escaped injury. Mr. Steinmann, injured severely by bruise, with possible
internal injuries, refused to remain at the Hospital, and accompanied the body of his wife to La Grange,
in an automobile, and both the funeral coach and the automobile reached here shortly before eight
o'clock. In care of Dr. Hoch, Mr. Steinmann was put to bed and made as comfortable as possible.

Monday afternoon, Rev. Chas. Nash, pastor of the First Presbyterian church officiated at the funeral.
Mrs. B. C. Westbrook of Dallas, niece of Mr. Steinmann, sang "Abide With Me," at the home, preceding
the religious services.

Interment was held at the new cemetery. The attendance upon these last rites was very large, the
saddened faces gave evidence of the sincere sympathy that all encouraged for the stricken family.

Ladies of the Eastern Star, auxiliary of the Masonic Order, attended in a body, and officers of the
auxiliary rendered the beautiful and impressive ceremony at the open grave. In attendance, also, were
the cadets from A&M College, of which Weldon Steinmann was captain. Flowers, coming from every
neighborhood, beautiful emblems, a profusion that was spread out beyond the plat of ground, completely
hid the earthen couch.

The active pallbearers were: Geo. E. Lenert, W. W. Few, John Schroeder, Roy H. Giese, P. A. Nikel,
Wm. Loessin, Cooney Letzerich and E. H. Moss. The honorary pallbearers, all friends of the family.

Sunday last was "Mother's Day." To these two families the day had a special meaning, each had a son at
the College; the happy expectancy, of pinning a flower on the boys at this College where the day was to
be appropriately commemorated is easily imagined. That pleasure a mother encourages, to witness the
presence of her son, and to have been honored with the duty of pinning that flower, unmindful of any
other possibility than to arrive at the College, be greeted by their sons, and spend in accord with the day,
is recognized. Chatting, looking forward to the hour when the exercises were to be held, few hours in
genuine happiness, these two mothers were relegating all else, and then - with the swiftness of the arrow
the sudden change. The red flower, to have been worn by Weldon Steinmann, the son, was removed,
and the white flower taken.

Mrs. Steinmann, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Willenberg, was born in La Grange, August
26, 1881, the third daughter and the fifth child, and was reared in La Grange. Her death leaves only one
member of the Willenberg family, the eldest son, E. R. Willenberg of Freeport. She was united in
marriage with C. H. Steinmann in La Grange, November 11, 1906, three children were born to this
union. These are: Chris A. of Dallas, Miss Mildred, and the youngest son, to graduate in June from the
A&M College; Weldon. She is also mourned by two nieces and one nephew.

Mother's Day! What destiny could have assumed control on this the day when the offspring had
welcomed the hour the recognition of the day could be given. What can mortals, imbued with the
thought that a tribute to the living mother would bring happiness and incite more ennobling deeds on the
part of the boy or the girl who experiences the joy to remember her, offer except to encourage the hope

                                            66
that it was so decreed. Question not, is the rebuke; the Journal editor, ever willing to add to the
happiness of those who are so deserving, witnessing the scenes that brighten the eyes of the parent and
child and bring a happy beat to the heart, feels the keen loss that this husband and these children
experience. What comfort can the Journal offer to them in this their hour of grief, except to point out the
way, and accept the mandate as issued. Cruel? When we contemplate the happiness that seemed to have
been suddenly elevated to the throne, and witness the cruel change, from laughter to sob, from smile to
tears, nothing seems to be at our command.

Let Him who stilled the storm and rebuked it, look upon those who today are bowed in grief and stay the
sorrow that has been so heavy.

Otto T. Willrich Failed To Return Home

When relatives who had visited with him at the Brenham Hospital last Wednesday afternoon, returned to
La Grange, they gave out the unfriendly report that while his condition was considered favorable, O. T.
Willrich, injured in the automobile accident the Sunday previous, was far from being able to return, and
in the event he did return, he would have to wear braces. Which, unwilling as were his relatives and
friends to accept the inevitable, denoted nothing less. That the invasion of death should occur, as fast as
it did, was to everyone a painful shock. Mr. Willrich died at about 3:00 o'clock Thursday morning.

Sunday, May 14 - Mother's Day

O. T. Willrich, Mrs. Willrich and son O. T., Jr., and niece, Miss Lorine Kruse, and Mr. and Mrs. C. H.
Steinmann, in the Willrich family automobile, were en route to College Station to attend the program
arranged for the entertainment of fathers and mothers for Mother's Day, and met with a very deplorable
accident. In that accident Mrs. Steinmann was fatally injured and died within a few minutes after the
automobile ceased to run; Mr. Willrich was taken to the Brenham Hospital, a dislocated vertabrae being
his chief injury. From Sunday morning until Thursday morning he lingered, and at 3:00 o'clock, without
a struggle, he passed to his reward.

The body was brought to La Grange and prepared for burial; at the family home in the western end of the
city, funeral services were held, and from the home the body was taken to the St. Paul Lutheran church,
where Rev. R. Heise spoke in eulogy of the departed and the choir and Sunday school sang appropriate
hymns. The place of worship was filled with sympathizing friends, on the church yard were equally as
many, who came to mingle their tears with those of the relatives and to pay respect to one who was ever
regarded as a worthy citizen, a good father and husband, a friend to those who desired his friendship.
Interment was made at the new cemetery, with flowers banked high and over much space at the newly
acquired plot. The pall bearers were: O. E. Stolz, Alex. E. von Rosenburg, O. E. Hagemann, Fred
Wolters, Milton Schmidt and B. F. Harigel.

Biographical and Reference

Otto T. Willrich was born on what is generally known as Bluff, to the south of La Grange, and was the
third child of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Willrich, who lived in that part of the county for more than fifty years.
He was reared on a farm, and was instructed in the events of life yet to transpire, to be honest, frugal, and
above all, gentlemanly in his demeanor to his fellow man. His parents were of that high type of citizenry
who merited the good will and respect of their neighbors, and the children born to this union upheld that
regard; Otto T. Willrich being a living example for many years. Otto was born November 29, 1877; after
leaving the farm he became associated with the local firm, The von Rosenberg Company; his strict
attention to business, his loyalty, and his genial approach to custom, merited his continuance in the
employ; that firm has lost a valuable man.

Unpretentious, believing in that principle that the best friends are those who are friends because their
friendship is merited, he lived in peace and contentment with everyone. Fourteen years ago, late in years
of manhood, he was united in marriage with Mrs. Annie Addicks, and that union was blessed with one
child, O. T. Jr. The widow and son survive. He is also survived by two brothers in Houston, Louis and
Hans, and one brother of near La Grange, George Willrich. Three sisters, Mesdames V. C. Sladczyk and
George Schaefer, and Miss Rita Willrich also survive. There are a number of nieces, cousins and
nephews who will miss this good old boy, who always had the right hand extended in welcome.

The little widow, injured in the same accident, her face still discolored and her limbs aching from the
effects of that injury, bore up bravely; she will miss him as all loving wives shall miss their chosen
companion, but, in her firm belief she accepts the verdict of the Master, and looks forward to that day

                                            67
when the reunion shall occur. "It is God's will, and I shall not complain." What more beautiful can be
the words of one who leaned upon the staff of her husband, and with him found peaceful happiness in
their church membership. Her older son, Gilbert O. Addicks, to whom Otto was ever an advisor and
companion, upheld the arms of his mother and with equal fortitude bore up well under the affliction,
both in the same faith and hope, looking forward to that Great Day when events of this sad nature shall
cease.

Flowers are brought to the bier of one whom the community loved; in the passing of a citizen, that touch
of Nature that makes the whole world kin, is exemplified by deed, and words of sympathy expressed.
When the sad news came, there was manifested an interest and sincere sympathy that would bring to the
confession of appreciation, grateful words from the most indifferent. The little widow, abed still from
her injuries, welcomed her friends, they came constantly and with that open-hearted feeling of kinship
created by the severing of the threads of life, sought to allay the pain that this parting had created.

The Journal believed in the man all knew as plain, good and kind Otto Willrich, the friendship of long
standing suffered the blow to be inflicted and questioned not; yet, as the editor looked upon the calm,
placid face, and in the next room saw the little woman who had, hand in hand gone down the pathway of
life in real happiness, carrying on with him in every reversal as well as gladsome event, witnessed their
sincere devotion and unflinching faith in their religious demeanor, it brought the usual query: "Why this
separation?"

May Time deal gently with all who are feeling the pang of a temporary parting, and may the eventide,
when the joy was experienced ever, at the home-coming, be robbed of its cruel sting, and that absence
which is so keenly felt, become less effective, to the end that even she who believed and still believes,
may find comfort at the knowledge that temporary absence is but a meagre part of that course of human
experience that ends in blissful communion, when loved ones shall gather together again, for all time.

           Geo. C. Schaefer, 76, Is Interred Saturday

           Funeral services were held Saturday at the Koenig Funeral Home Chapel here for George C. Schaefer,
           76, who passed away at the local hospital Thursday after a five-months' illness. Rev. H. T. Flachmeier
           officiated, and interment was made in the New City Cemetery.

          Willrich – Mason Wedding

          A very pretty wedding was solemnized Wednesday evening at 8 o’clock at the First Methodist Church
          when Miss Evelyn Mason was married to Hans O. Willrich. Reverend Cook of the McAshan Methodist
          church performing the ceremony.

          The church was attractively decorated with palms and ferns which were used to form an arch. From the
          middle of the arch a wedding bell, made of white roses was suspended. White roses and other
          seasonable flowers were used for the adornment of the church.

          Prof. Heinzleman played the Lohengrin Wedding March for the processional march and the
          Mendelssolm March as the recessional. He also accompanied Miss Laura Baines, who sang”God Made
          Thee Mine,” preceding the ceremony.

          The bride was costumed in an elegant tailored suit of silk crepe which fashioned in the new fall style,
          was of the new brick shadings. Her hat of the same color showed a pleasing contrast of color by the use
          of blue plumes.

          Her bouquet, made of bride roses and fern, gave a finishing touch to the costume. A handsome bar pin,
          the gift of the groom, was the only ornament worn.

          She was given in marriage by her brother, C. T. Mason, and was met at the altar by the groom and the
          best man, L. O. Willrich. The ushers were Messrs. J. P. Mason, Walter B. Buschardt, J. H. Alsobrook Jr.
          and Mason A. Baines.

          Many handsome gifts were received among which were several cheques from the relatives of the groom.
          One particularly interesting telegram received was the congratulatory telegram from Abe Levy in New
          Hampshire.

          Immediately after the ceremony, the couple left for a stay at the Galvez, later going to La Grange. They
          will be at home after September 15 at 1611 Tuam Avenue, where they will be pleased to welcome their
          many friends.

             A Sad Death.

             The citizens of our little city were much shocked Monday morning to learn of the sad death of Miss Elise
             Willrich which occured at the residence of her brother-in-law, George Schaefer. Miss Willrich was but
             twenty years of age, a lady for whom every one entertained a high regard and for whom a bright future
             had often been predicted. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Willrich, born at Bluff in December
             1886, and possessed a charming disposition, which endeared her to all. Her sudden demise, although not
             entirely unexpected, was a shock to her friends, and the sympathy of the entire community is extended to
             the surviving relatives.

             On June 19th, last, she came to LaGrange to attend the Summer Normal. She attended the first day but
             as she was ill remained absent the second day, and suffered from swollen tonsils. Although medical aid
             was solicited and loving hands administered to her every want, the approach of death was apparent and
             as the illness finally culminated in blood poison, she passed away Monday morning at 4 o'clock. The
             remains of the beloved young lady were conveyed to the Lewis cemetery at Cedar and there interred. The
             cortege was very large. Peace be with her.

             DIED AT HOUSTON

             As we go to press the news was flashed over the wires to relatives here, that the wife of E. T. Lueders
             had passed away at 11:30 Wednesday morning, at a Houston hospital.

             The body will be brought to this city for burial. A more extended notice of the death of Mrs. Lueders

             INTERRED AT CEDAR
             Remains of Mrs. E. T. Lueders Were Brought To La Grange

             The remains of Mrs. E. T. Lueders, who died at Houston on Wednesday of last week, reached La Grange
             Thursday morning and were conveyed to the home of V. C. Sladczyk, in the southern part of the city,
             from where the funeral was held the same afternoon at five o'clock, and the body then taken to the Cedar
             cemetery and placed to their last rest, many relatives and sympathizing friends, being present to witness

          the last sad rites.

          Mrs. Lueders, whose maiden name was Miss Annie Willrich, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Willrich of
          Bluff, was born at the present home of the parents, and grew to beautiful womanhood there. She was
          united in marriage with Edgar T. Lueders of La Grange on October 22, 1913, and the two lived happily
          in our city until about six months ago, when they removed to Houston.

          To them came to add happiness to their home and hearts two children, the eldest a little daughter; now
          four, and the youngest, a son, two years of age. These motherless children are now with Grandma
          Willrich, though advanced in years, who will devote time and care to their raising.

          Our sincerest sympathy is offered to the bereaved husband, the sisters and brothers, and to the parents, to
          whom such loss means the wounding and bleeding of the heart.

86 YEARS

Mrs. Louise Koehler, who lives with her daughter, Mrs. Elsie Mensing, celebrated the 86th anniversary of her
natal day, Sunday. Nothing at elaboration, friends called to extend good wishes, and a light lunch was enjoyed.
Of her children the following were present:

Mrs. Anna Kirsch, Mrs. Elise Mensing, Mrs. Julius Gebhardt and Arthur Koehler and their family connections.
From Schulenburg came Mrs. M. Koehler, daughter-in-law, and Mrs. Larry Cornelson, grand-daughter.

The lateness of the offering decreases not the Journal's congratulations and hearty good wishes. May she continue
to enjoy good health and have her family and friends to gather at the next anniversary.

HIS WISH FULFILLED
Death Claimed An Old Fayette County Citizen Sunday Evening

As per his wish expressed to the writer some months since, that when his name should be called, he would not
linger but drift peacefully into the last sleep, Emil Koehler died Sunday night at the family home in the northern
part of La Grange. Death followed quickly after he had made known his illness - - within a few hours. As was his
custom and habit, and in which he ever found a great deal of pleasure, Mr. Koehler, apparently and in the very
best of spirits, and jovial as was his nature, left the house and looked to the feeding of his chickens. It was when
he essayed to return into the house that he was stricken and had to be assisted. In spite of the fact that medical aid

                                                            74
was secured, he soon began his last earthly sleep. Near the eleventh evening hour' he received his wish, he fell
asleep and passed out of the knowledge of all things earthly.

Mr. Koehler was man whom to know was to love and admire; he had long since passed the usual allotment of
years granted to mortals, and maintained his ever friendly disposition, always ready to extend the greeting to his
fellow man, and carrying with him an atmosphere of good cheer. We had all grown so accustomed him each
morning and listen to his welcome voice, that now his absence will be noted by everybody. He was born in
Halberstadt, Germany on the eighth day of April 1837, and grew to manhood in that country.

In 1864 the deceased emigrated to America and landed in New York where he remained for one year and then
came to Texas and located at Bluff, in this county, where he engaged in farming. In the year 1871, December 22,
he was united in marriage with Miss Louise Willrich of the Bluff community, and to them were born eight
children, all of whom, with the widow, survive. These children are: Arthur Koehler of LaGrange, Mannie
Koehler of Schulenburg, F. W. Koehler of Houston, Mrs. J. Gebhardt of LaGrange, Mrs. Alex Moore of Elgin
and George Koehler of La Grange. Eleven grandchildren will also miss good old grandpa.

Tuesday afternoon the funeral was held from his late residence, and the remains were interred at the new
cemetery, Rev. R. Heise conducting the ceremonies. May his rest be peaceful.

           He Fell Asleep

           Thursday afternoon, at his home 2 ½ miles south of La Grange surrounded by his loving wife, his
           mother, and several brothers, Fritz Mensing, conscious of the fact that his life's threads were about to be
           snapped in twain, turned from one to another, spoke cheerfully, and like an infant, fell into eternal sleep.

           With his last breath there passed to his reward a good, honest man, the son of an old and highly respected
           family, one in whom every one who knew him, reposed the utmost confidence.


                                                       76
            Fritz was born near his late home thirty-nine years ago on August 10, last. His early youth was spent on
            the farm where he remained until a few years after he had reached his majority, when he removed to La
            Grange and engaged in partnership with his brother, Hermann, in the mercantile business. Some thirteen
            years ago he was united in marriage with Miss Elise Koehler, the result of this union being a girl now 8
            years of age, and an infant boy of fifteen months ------ the period in which he resided in this city, he was
            stricken with typhoid fever, lingering between life and death for several months. From the ravages of
            this fever he never entirely recovered. His vitality ebbed away gradually, until a brave fight ended in his
            demise.

            His widow, his two children, God be merciful to them. They will mourn the loss of a good and loving
            husband and father. His mother, for whom he had so pleadingly asked just one short hour before his
            departure, will miss her eldest son. None but those who have experienced the anguish such loss
            occasions can fully appreciate the loss the mother has sustained. We deeply sympathize with the
            bereaved relatives.

            Friday afternoon, the remains were brought to La Grange, and were interred at the new cemetery, where a
            large number of sympathizing friends had joined the relatives, to witness the last sad rites. May his rest
            be peaceful.

A Romantic Wedding

When Cupid's arrow rents the air, and penetrates the heart of the maiden, the inevitable result is the
happy union of souls and hearts. Adolf Koehler, a handsome young man of Schulenburg, a hard working
and energetic youngster, came over Christmas morning, and with him, his lady fair, who later became his
bonnie bride.

Adolf, who is known to everyone here as "Mannie," became imbued with the romantic spirit, called upon
his sweetheart that night, and at two o'clock the next morning the two left for La Grange, reaching here at
five o'clock. Squire Moss, deep in Slumberland ------ and trembling - not from fear but the chilly cold -
stepped out to the edge of the walk fronting his home, and in a few words pronounced the words that
made the pair happy. After this the home of the groom's parents in the neighborhood was visited and
Christmas pleasantly spent with the latter. The bride was Miss Emma Schulz, one of Schulenburg's
popular young ladies.

The Journal congratulates the pair, and trusts that in the future to come, and with eyes blinded to the
past, they will ever be as happy as now, that prosperity and joy be with them until the end of life's
journey to another clime where there is thought to a happy union for all time.

           York, remaining in that city for several years. He came to La Grange in 1914, and became associated

           Mr. Gebhardt was a good citizen, ever encouraging high ideals, and was a close student of world news.
           His extensive travel, both in Germany and other foreign countries, and in the United States, enabled him
           to discuss such with ease, and his knowledge of the financial world made it possible for him to converse
           with force and intelligence on such matters.

Another Called Home.

The sad news was brought to town early Tuesday morning that Mrs. Geo. Koehler had died at the home
of her parents the evening before, leaving a bright little baby girl and a heart-broken husband, parents
and other relatives to mourn her departure. Mrs. Koehler, was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul
Lueders, and during her entire lifetime up to within about one year of the present date, had been a strong
and healthy person, never knowing the ill effects of sickness. Some months ago she became ill from
dropsy, and during the intervening time she had received the best of medical attention, but to no avail.

At all times she bore her affliction with great fortitude, cheerful and always the same jolly person that
had made for her so many - - - She began to show signs for the worse, and instead of the puffed
appearance that was hers for the past several months she became very poor, and partial paralysis
followed the birth of her little babe. Monday night she passed away.

The young husband who was born and reared a few miles from town has been in the employ of the
Alexander Grocery Company since their residence here and the two seemed to be very happy. They had
purchased the lots in the Southern part of the city from Mr. Lueders and erected thereon a neat little
cottage, which due to the sudden change of health of the deceased they were unable to occupy. As the
patient grew worse she was taken out to the home of her parents and there died as above stated. The
funeral was held Wednesday afternoon, and the remains were carried to William's Creek cemetery, and
there interred. To the surviving relatives and the young husband we extend our sincerest sympathy.

            Alex M. Moore Dies at Elgin, Sunday

            Local relatives were advised by telephone last Sunday, before dawn that Alex M. Moore, who was born
            and reared here in La Grange, was in a serious condition, with slight hopes held out for recovery. Alex
            died at 3:00 o'clock the same morning.

            Funeral was held at the Methodist church in Elgin at 5:00 p.m., with the pastor of the church and also the
            pastor of the Baptist church at Elgin officiating; and with both his Masonic brethren and veterans of the
            Spanish - American war veterans, in attendance. Both conducted funeral services.

            Many will remember the red-headed youth who lived in La Grange until he reached his majority; he was
            united in marriage with Miss Lottie Koehler, daughter of the late Emil and Mrs. Laura Koehler, August
            4, 1907; and to them was born two daughters; both of whom, with the widow survive; one daughter, Mrs.
            Dale Davis and little daughter, only grandchild and Miss Marguerite Moore.

            Alex Moore was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Ausken Moore, and a grandson of John E. Moore, early settler of
            La Grange, and for many years public weigher at the eastern end of the city. He was born March 8,
            1880, and at the time of his death was 54 years, 6 months and 22 days old.

            Those attending the funeral Sunday from La Grange, are: Mr. and Mrs. Julius Gebhardt, Mrs. Louise
            Koehler, Mrs. F. Mensing and son, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Koehler, Mrs. Anna Kirsch, Mr. and Mrs. D. M.
            Killoughand, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Koehler and daughter of West Point.

                                                       81
             Alex Moore was, in the truest sense of the word, a good citizen, and a kind husband, and father and
             neighbor. He was regarded in the highest terms by his fellow citizens at Elgin and here in La Grange
             where he was reared he leaves many friends. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the Moore family and
             other relatives.

             Happily United

             Yesterday afternoon at five o'clock at the Jefferson Street Lutheran church in this city, Rev. R. Heise,
             pastor united in marriage F. W. Koehler, of Houston and Miss Irma Augusta Amberg, of this city. Long
             before the appointed hour friends and relatives of the contracting parties had gathered at the house of
             worship to witness the impressive ceremony.

             Prior to the arrival of the wedding party, Miss Edna Heilig sang "The Sweetest Story Ever Told, " and
             Mrs. Lad V. Vanek, presiding at the organ, at the close of the song, played Mendelssohn's beautiful
             wedding march; the bride, leaning on the arm of her chosen companion slowly entered, preceded by the
             ushers, Messrs. Alfred Moellenberndt and Leon Bodungen. As the wedding couple were leaving Mrs.
             Vanek played the "Bridal Chorus" from Wagner, the sweet, soul-inspiring strains adding solemnity to the
             occasion.

             The interior of the church was handsomely decorated with ferns, pot-flowers and festooning. The scene,

                                                       82
                   enhanced by the glow of the electrical light was enchanting. The bride's aunt, Mrs. C. W. Amberg
                   supervised the transformation.

                   The bridal party drove to the home of the bride's parents where a wedding spread was partaken of, after
                   which all repaired to the Katy passenger station where Mr. and Mrs. Koehler boarded the cars for
                   Houston, their future home.

                   In joining their legion of friends, we express the hope that the future of the happy young couple will ever
                   be bright and that prosperity will be a constant companion. The bride-groom, youngest son of Emil
                   Koehler and wife, is an example of that type of fine young men, whose energy and morality prompts
                   good citizenship. He was born and reared near La Grange and only recently removed to Houston where
                   he is now associated with the Schuhmacher Company. Miss Irma, second daughter of Otto Amberg and
                   wife, possessing an admirable disposition of friendliness and a loving daughter, will make an excellent
                   helpmate.

MRS. L. de L. Tuttle

Eternal sleep came to Mrs. L. de L. Tuttle, mother of Judge George Willrich, Tuesday forenoon. For several
months, due to her advanced age, Mrs. Tuttle, ever interested in literary work, brilliant of mind and concerned
about the community's people, had remained at the home of her son, where her every comfort was provided.

Our brief reference to the departed invites the interest of one who enjoyed her intimate acquaintance, to whom we
assign the duty of paying a tribute to a good woman.

Wednesday morning at the Sacred Heart church Rev. Geo. Beberich held mass of requiem, and Wednesday
afternoon the citizenship of LaGrange attended the obsequies at the new cemetery.

                    Flatonia Flashes

                    A military company, the "Flatonia Rifles," has been organized here with the following officers: Captain,
                    Geo. de L. Willrich; 1st lieutenant, M. J. Sloan; 2d lieutenant, T. O. Kerr; 1st sergeant, C. E. Lane. This
                    reporter does not know the names of the other officers. The boys say Flatonia never was beaten at
                    anything her citizens undertook, and that they will make this a first-class company.

                    Richmond, should their services be required. Happily there was no necessity for their presence at the
                    scene of trouble. This was quite a disappointment to most of the boys, who were keen to go - anything,
                    you know, to break the monotony.

JUDGE WILLRICH'S DEATH

When the news came to Winchester that Judge Willrich had died Wednesday morning, it was very
unwelcome. Judge Willrich had many friends in this part of the county, and he always found a hearty
welcome when he came to mingle with us. We know, and everyone knows, that eventually, this debt is to
be paid by us all, but we decline to have it thrust upon us.

During his career as county judge of Fayette county, Judge Willrich found many loyal supporters in this
section; they regarded him as their friend and many are the friendly deeds he did for them. Personally,
we sincerely regret his loss; and to his widow and other relatives we offer our sympathy.

Dresden, Germany,
June 24, 1923

Editor Journal:
On Friday, June 22d, Mrs. Watson, Gerda Olive, Judge and myself left Oldenburg for a tour of some of
the famous places in Eastern and Southern Germany. Our first stop was at Lueneberg, where we visited
briefly with a cousin of the Judge's, then to Hildesheim, which teems with the things that most interest

                                          108
us; legend, folklore houses of ancient date, and customs of other days. The one thing there, which all the
world knows about, is the one thousand year old rose bush. It is to be seen in the court yard of this Dorn,
and its story is connected with the foundation of that church.

I'm not a souvenir hunter, but a number of small sprigs have dropped from the main stalk, and I am going
to preserve the one I picked up for Mr. Heintze, knowing how he treasures and appreciates such
things.**

The Rathshaus is most interesting, the frescoes are of a symbolic nature, and all tell in some way the
early story of Hildesheim. We had a bottle of wine in the Rathskeller, this being included in any order
there, and were shown about this portion of the building - the celler, I mean.

The houses are most noticeable, going up into peaks, with small windows peeping out of the extremely
slanting red tiled roofs. One need not to be told that they are very old; there are whole streets of them,
special attention being attracted to the small house called the "Inverted Zucker-hut". In Hildesheim we
first met up with young people, boys and girls, most of them with packs on their backs. The Judge is
always eager for information, and talked with a man who was in charge of the boys thinking he was a
teacher. He was a merchant in charge of the "North German Merchants' Jugentag." I have one of their
programs before me, and note that it says from June 23 to 26 will be spent in the beautiful old town of
Hildesheim. These boys are to be merchants and the Judge enjoyed talking to them, as they enjoyed his
conversation. We met up with the crowd often during our sightseeing that day.

We spent the night in Braunschweig, and attended the theatre. The Judge didn't like the shave and
massage he got there and could not help but make comparisons with our home barbers. He became quite
grouchy after this bit of unsatisfactory treatment, and I fear, will always retain and unpleasant memory of
Braunschweig - otherwise, Brunswick. We took an early train for Leipsig, the one great object of interest
there being the mighty war memorial. It is the largest of Germany's war memorials, on the scale of the
pyramids, one might say, and far beyond mere words of mine to describe.

This is Sunday, being a most beautiful day in point of weather we saw on the one hand, gay parties
filling the trains and going to the country for a day in the open, and on the other hand the men and
women in the fields, literally, "making hay while the sun shone."

At Leipsig we called up our American consul, Mr. De Soto, not that we needed his services, but to give
him greetings from a mutual friend, and his comrade in the service, H. C. von Struve, some years ago a
young law student at La Grange and a member of our household. Mr. de Soto managed to locate us at
the station, which is said to be the largest in the world, but he stated it wasn't so difficult since he saw the
grip which had been lettered by Mr. Rose: "George Willrich, La Grange, Texas, U.S.A." He was most
courteous and regretted that he couldn't have shown us some real attention - our time was short. We left
this place at six o'clock. Our friend, Mrs. Watson, conducts the party and knows the ways and means of
doing things here. She visited these places only recently, which gives her added advantage of taking us
at once to the object of interest without loss of time.

Upon our arrival in Germany the mark stood at 150,000 to the dollar, now it is 90,000. When we pay a
few thousand marks for a meal, we cannot convince ourselves that it is only a few cents, what we'd in old
La Grange would call ridiculously cheap. Another great service Mrs. Watson does for us , is managing
our finances, far beyond us, although it is really only about twenty dollars in our money.

Mrs. George Willrich

** Had it been so willed, Mr. Heintze would have been granted a lease on life until your return, and your
thoughtfulness would have brought from him a thankful smile. But, he has joined the great majority, and
there are many who mourn as you will, at the knowledge here given. - Editor

Nuernberg, Germany,
June 27, 1923.

Editor Journal:
We came to Nuernberg from Berlin, passed through a most picturesque part of Germany, several hundred
miles, since it is an all-day trip. There were castle-tipped hills, almost mountains, in the background, and
since the sun was shining, the people were very busy in the hay fields, in the foreground. It has been
raining so much that they are kept busy trying to save their hay. This activity added interest to the
picture for us and the brightness made the perspective perfect. There was so much to see that the Judge
took his seat by a window and wouldn't listen when we called him to look at the other side, saying it was
all he could do to keep up with one side.


                                            109
The train service is splendid, but trains are generally crowded at this time. We didn't happen to get one
with a diner, so found variety in making the stations for Frankfurters and beer, or whatever was to be
had. This is vacation time in Germany and everywhere there are people, singly, in couples or groups
with packs on their backs, going from place to place. Teachers and children go about in this way; we had
our picture taken with such a group in Dresden. The children were all in for the lark and hastily climbed
upon the gigantic piece of statutary that was to be the background.

People have a time keeping up with the money, and inquiries are made daily by everybody as to how the
dollar stands. As foreigners we are charged double, and then it amounts to very little, about twenty-five
cents each for an extra good meal. The Judge enjoys talking to the people, and we have enjoyed meeting
many in the train. The coupes have room for six or eight generally. The French "adieu" is entirely out,
everyone says "auf wiederschen". On entering the hotel you are greeted by each of the attendants, and
every morning the same.

At Potsdam the castle used by the late emperor, is open to the public since 1918. It was built by
Frederick the Great, and rivals "San Souci". The body of the late empress rests in a mausoleum near by,
facing a rose garden; this, according to her request, it is said. The casket is to be seen - the only one
there - and fresh flowers, too. There does not seem to be the least sympathy for the late emperor or
interest in him, which some account for by his marriage.

The richest treasures in Europe are to be seen in the castles; the "Gruene Gewolbe" in Dresden is the late
king of Saxony's storehouse of jewels and works of art, other than paintings, and rivals Ali Baba's cave in
richness. The articles, or most of them, were gifts to the king of Saxony through the ages, by other
potentates.

This city is known - to us - as a toy manufacturing center. It was fortified, and the ancient towers -
immense structures - are to be seen here and there. One is directly opposite this modernly equipped
hotel.

Sight-seeing is very hard work, but Mrs. Watson is able to save us annoyance in every way. She attends
to the tickets and gets us about in short order, where, left to ourselves, precious time would be consumed
in making inquiries. Muenchen, or Munich, is our next stop before going north again for Oldenburg;
from there we will go to Bonn on the Rhine. Some say there are difficulties in traveling in that section,
but we will be with relatives. Until then.
Mrs. Geo. Willrich.

ATTEND THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS AT NEW ORLEANS

Mrs. Geo. Willrich, Miss Olivia Schaefer, Mrs. Arthur Pohl and Miss Ida Reichert of La Grange, and
Mrs. Marie Lanaux of California, spent the past week in New Orleans, in attendance upon the Eighth
National Eucharistic Congress.

Incidentally, points of interest in the old historical city were visited, and the memory of Jackson's defeat
of the British general and his horde of soldiers recalled. The historic battle of New Orleans was fought
Jan. 8, 1814, two days after the treaty of peace had been signed at Utrecht. Communication was not as
fast then as it is today.

Memoriam In Mention To Mrs. Willrich

Mrs. Olivia Tuttle Willrich widow of the late Judge George Willrich, died after a brief illness abed,
Tuesday of last week. Announcement of her death created many expressions of regret, regret that she
who had ever been at the call of service in civic work, should have been called hence. Age of the
departed was not given thought.

Mrs. Willrich, born Olivia Tuttle, a daughter of a pioneer citizen of Fayette county, who came from
Rochester, New York, a century ago, was born at Pin Oak, southwest from LaGrange, removing to
Flatonia with her husband after their marriage, later coming to LaGrange where Judge Willrich, first
practicing law, later serving the county as county attorney and for 16 years a county judge, made his
home. Denied the happiness of children being born to this union, Mrs. Willrich took to her care and for
education, those whom she desired to assist.

Brilliant of mind, capable as a writer, and always willing, both in her church work and in her literary and
civic work, she aided many worthy enterprises of the city. Friends never found her reluctant, she
appeared where her services were welcomed and where such service could be of benefit.

Family connections being identified, first with the struggle of the colonists, she was recognized as a
daughter of the American revolution; with her father removing to the South and both her husband's father
and her own identified with the Confederate army she devoted much time in keeping the organization
known as Daughters of the Confederacy active, and served officially in the local chapter; her name was
also connected with the Daughters of the Texas Republic. Active in church work, affiliated with the
Catholic church, she was constantly aiding and abetting some worthy effort in behalf of that church and
was instrumental in organizing the Mothers' Club of the Sacred Heart Parochial school at LaGrange.

Interested in the preservation of the tomb on Monument Hill south of LaGrange, she served for many
years as president of the Monument Hill Memorial Association; due to her efforts, assisted by other
members of the Association, beauty was restored to the sacred spot and a memorial tomb was erected
over the bones of the Men of Mier and Dawson's men who fell at Salado Creek, near San Antonio.
Never unwilling, never too tired despite the constitutional ailment that was her's, she joined with the
Catholic Women in keeping the National Council of Catholic Women, Brenham District, active. The
office of president of that organization was in her charge when she was stricken by her last illness. She
was arranging to attend the meeting that was to be held Sunday, November 23, at Galveston. Death
interfered. Due to her knowledge of business, parliamentary law and the work that women can do, she
became a member of the Business and Professional Women's Club of LaGrange.

Thursday morning Requiem Mass was celebrated at the Sacred Heart church by Rev. S. A. Zientek.
Following the Mass Rev. Zientek review-ed the life of Mrs. Willrich, and in an eloquent tribute, spoken
with emphasis and with sincerity pointed to the many deeds of good she had committed during her near
to four score years and ten.

Attendance upon the obsequies was large; friends who were associated with her civic endeavors, which
included the Garden Club of La Grange, and relatives of both her husband and her immediate family,
were present. The last respects were paid at the cemetery where beautiful flowers covered the couch
under which she will sleep.

Among those attending the funeral services, and coming from a distance, the following (which is only a
partial list) are given:
L. W. Kemp, Mr. and Mrs. C. C Shumway of Houston.
Misses Edna J. Tuttle, Helen Tuttle, Marion Tuttle Brazelton of San Antonio.
W. E. Schmid, Emily Schmid, Hilda Schramm, Mrs. James F. Carroll of Brenham.
Mr. and Mrs. John Tuttle, Mr. and Mrs. Roscoe Tuttle of El Campo.
Miss Rosalie Gutowski of Chapel Hill.
Miss Lizzie Hubbard and Clarence Hubbard of Hills Prairie.
Mrs. W. Tait, R. E. Tait, Mr. and Mrs. William Tait of Columbus.

May 10, 1906

The friends of Judge C. T. Willrich of Schulenburg, residing in La Grange, were much pained Monday to learn of
his untimely demise which occurred Sunday. Judge Willrich was a prominent citizen of our sister city where for
many years he very creditably held the positions of mayor and justice of the peace, occupying the latter chair
when death claimed him. Known to all and beloved he will be sadly missed. Judge Willrich, we are informed
was about eighty-six years of age.

Notes for Edna Mills:
Edna Mills Willrich

In 1931 a southbound Kansas City Southern passenger train slowed to a stop and a young lady stepped off. Edna
Mills had arrived for her new job and the rest of her life in DeQuincy.

To meet the train that day were a couple of young men who had heard some new teachers were coming to town.
Jake Willrich told his pal, Pete Perkins, that the “one in the silly hat was his.” Edna married Jake three years
later. Her teaching career would come to an abrupt halt as married women were not allowed to teach in those
days.

Their only child, Candace, was born twelve years later in 1946. When Jake died unexpectantly in 1952, Edna’s
role as a businesswoman began. She operated his oil and gas distributorship for two years keeping books, and
sometimes pumping gas; until leasing to then Standard Oil Company. Her teaching career resumed in 1954
shortly, and she would raise her young daughter alone.

Edna’s 67 years in DeQuincy have been spent actively involved in civic and community endeavors.

She is the only living charter member of the DeQuincy Study Club, the oldest federated civic organization in
DeQuincy founded in 1938. She has served as its president three different times and in all of its other offices as
well. Several of the noteworthy accomplishments of the club were the establishment of DeQuincy’s first library, a
wheel chair project to provide assistance to the disabled, and hearing tests for all of the local school children. She
is an active member today and her daughter is also a member.

Edna became a member of the First Baptist Church soon after her arrival, and has been active in many areas. She
served several times as a Sunday School teacher and is presently a member of the Martha Sunday School Class.
She has been a member of the choir until recently, a member of Senior Power Group, and the Senior Power Choir
which visits the local nursing home and hospital on special occasions. She served for many years as the chairman
of the Bereavement Committee comforting families in dark hours, and has been a faithful member of the
Women’s Missionary Union.

Edna’s initiation in 1927 into the Order of the Eastern Star preceded her arrival in DeQuincy, and she has been an
active member of the Adah Chapter #34 all of these years. Her 70 years of membership have included holding all
stations. She is a past matron.

In her many years of teaching Home Economics, Edna has taught several generations of DeQuincy women in the
art of homemaking, particularly to cook and sew. Although retired, she continues to receive calls from former
students asking her advice about this and that. She is well known for her belief in “a pot of soup to soothe and a
pound cake to celebrate,” and there have been many recipients.

As the sponsor of the Future Homemakers of America, she has influenced hundreds of young women to aspire to
their roles as homemakers, and driven many miles with these girls to conventions all over the state.


                                                            124
For many years the annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet was held in the DeQuincy High School cafeteria
adjacent to Edna’s Home Economics Department. She and the FHA girls assisted with the menu, table settings
and decorations, and served as hostesses at the event. She was recognized and presented a plaque to acknowledge
her years of service to the Chamber several years ago.

She has been a member of local and state teacher’s organizations during her teaching career, and is presently a
member of the Calcasieu Parish Retired Teachers Association, the National Educators Association, and the State
of Louisiana Retired Teachers Association. She continues her active membership in Delta Kappa Gamma, a
national society for teachers in Calcasieu Parish.

On the occasion of her 90th birthday she can reflect to a rich and rewarding long life of dedicated service to her
community. Although the passenger trains have long stopped running and Edna’s vision failed, her enthusiasm,
dedication, and determination have not. She is loved and admired by her many friends, her former students, and
her family for her convictions, her loyalty, and her faithfulness.

WMU.

She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star for 77 years, holding all stations including Worthy Matron.

                    owners and cattlemen. Mr. Huebner did not confine his activities to ranching however as he became
                    interested in rice farming as well as other phases of agriculture. Up until a few months ago he actively
                    engaged in his business. He retired due to ill health about six months ago.

                    He is survived by his sister, Mrs. Elise Richers and two brothers, Andrew and Franz Huebner.

                    Funeral Services, from the Presbyterian Church, with Reverend Ernest Deutsch officiating, will be held
                    Thursday at 4 in the afternoon. His remains will lie in state at the Presbyterian Church from 3 to 4

Emil Richers, Sr. Dead

The news was brought in yesterday morning from the old family home south of town, that Emil Richers, Sr., for
many years a citizen of La Grange and vicinity had died early Wednesday morning. Mr. Richers had reached a
ripe, old age, being past eighty years old. He leaves a wife, four daughters and five sons. The funeral will be
held this Thursday afternoon, services at his home, with interment at the Cedar cemetery.

Emil Richers, Sr.

                                                             204
While ailing for several years the death of Emil Richers, Sr. which occurred at the family home south of town,
November 10, came as a shock, none expecting so sudden an end. He had about decided to remove to Bay City,
when his condition grew steadily worse and his end came hurriedly.

Emil Richers was born in Germany, and in 1846 came to America. At all times he was identified with the
progress of La Grange, was its mayor in the sixties, and for many years a merchant. He was united in marriage
with Miss Elise Huebner and to them were born twelve children, two of whom died in infancy. The ten children
living are: Mesd. Geo. Kehrer, and F. A. Otto, Houston; Mrs. R. A. Kehrer, Bay City, and Misses Regina and
Francis Richers; the five sons are John, Victor, Louis who is married and Gust. and Alfred, all grown. Four
sisters, Mrs. P. Nordhausen, Miss Hermina Richers and Mrs. H. A. Eck of Bluff and Mrs. C. Hubrich of Berlin,
Germany, and one brother, Robert Richers of Bluff, beside his widow, also survive.

In his passing away, the county has lost one of its early and energetic settlers. The remains were placed to their
last rest at the Cedar cemetery last Thursday, a large following witnessing the sad rites. May he rest in peace. To
his widow, his children and other relatives, we offer our sympathy. A Friend.

Card Of Thanks.

We desire in this manner to express our thanks to all who were so kind to us when death claimed our husband and
father last week. To Dr. R. H. Knolle for his untiring efforts and to Rev. R. Heise for his words of condolence so
beautifully expressed and to the friends who brought the floral offerings we desire to have you know we
appreciate all you have done. In this our sorrowing hour, you have come to us, and we say again, "thank you."

Mrs. E. Richers and Children.

Geo. Huebner

This country has furnished numerous instances where men with only limited education, but with practical sense
have risen to the brightest walks of life. Not schooling, but practical common sense is the key to success. Geo.
Huebner is and eminently practical man. During his early years as a teamster he had the chance to become
acquainted with the ways of life. His shrewd observation developed in him a sound judgement. On the road,
from his fellowmen and from nature, but not from books, he gathered his information. His knowledge comes
from the first source. And he not only has a fund of practical knowledge, but also knows how to express his
views with energy and clearness. He is an interesting talker. The writer has heard with deep interest his views on
road building and road improvement and he must confess that he never has heard sounder views on this subject
than those expressed by Geo. Huebner. But not only on this, he has sound views on almost any question. From
1898 to 1900 he served one term as county commissioner. When he retired from this office, declining to stand re-
election, it was the general verdict of the people that they never had had a better commissioner. The writer agrees
fully to their verdict and is of the opinion that a better man, a man with sounder judgement and greater common
sense can not be found for that office.

Geo. Huebner was born at the Bluff settlement August 16, 1851. His parents were John A. and Pauline (Willrich)
Huebner. They came to this country from Germany while quite young. His father came from Bavaria, and first
immigrated to Texas in 1836, but on account of Indian raids he went back to New Orleans without settling in
Texas. He returned in the early 40's and then settled in the Bluff settlement where both parents remained till their
death.

Geo. Huebner worked with his father on the farm, went to school and drove team. He acquired quite a reputation
as one of the most skillful teamsters of the county, for it required skill to handle six to eight teams of oxen. After
the war, he married Miss Lisette Warnken, the daughter of a prominent old settler at the Bluff. This union was
blessed with six children: Louis, Helene, Annie, George, Ellie, and Augusta.

George Huebner is a prominent successful farmer of the county. From 1898 to 1900 he served the county as
commissioner which office he filled with great efficiency to the satisfaction of the people.

Two Surviving Members of Fayette County Ox-Team Caravan to Mexico

Memories of the days when great cotton caravans meandered through miles of bandit-infested mesquite and
cactus to bring fantastic profits to their owners still live vividly in the minds of George Huebner and John
Speckels now living in La Grange. These two are the only living survivors of the Fayette county crew who so
deftly handled ox-teams with the chant, “Haw”, “He”, and “Gee.” The redoubtable two have lived to see this
mode of transportation superceded, first by railway, then by truck, and now by the unbelievably fast air express.

                                                            206
Not that they are impressed by these fast moving contraptions. Oh, no! They see in the slow moving ox-teams
which they so skillfully manipulated, disciplinary value to the young entirely absent in the breezy transportation
used by the younger generation. In fact, these stalwarts attribute much of the jazziness of the present generation
to the devilishly fast machines which enables the young folks to be “On again, off again, gone again, Flannigan.”
These hardened ox-team drivers further contend that the hazardous occupation of hauling cotton to Mexico during
their ‘teen years when boys of today haven’t yet finished high school, developed in them brawn and grain and
fortitude to see a disagreeable thing thru. These two boys, all in their eighties and as tough as pine knots, are
brilliant examples of the efficacy of their “take ‘em young and treat ‘em rough” theory.

George Huebner, one of the two who did teamstering duties during the sixties, has a remarkable memory and a
ready flow of picturesque words. He lives about twelve miles from La Grange on a rich black land farm, an
inheritance from his pioneer father. Near his home is the burial ground of the unfortunate Men of Mier, who were
executed in Mexico and those of the Dawson Massacre. Members of the Huebner family were present at the
burial in September, 1848.

Until recently, Huebner’s physical vigor was a match for his alert mentality. A year ago, against the advice of his
children, he attempted to break a wild horse which promptly threw him. An injured leg now hampers his
movements but in no way diminishes his remarkable energy.

Huebner has no patience with the mamby-pamby “finickyness” of the present generation. “I wonder”, he says,
“How they would have survived just one trip to the Mexican border.” He made five. “The dust”, he continues,
“was awful – like a dense cloud. We looked like mounds of earth slowly moving along.” Huebner’s description
of the dust menace is borne out by a story appearing in the Houston Tri-Weekly Telegraph of April 29, 1863.
“The drought extending from the mouth of the Rio Grande to within thirty miles of the Nueces, has proved to be
the most thorough vegetation destroyer of any kind that has visited the country in years. The country begins to
look as if seared with red hot irons. Surface water sink holes give a feeble supply of water highly impregnated
with offensive gases and saline properties. Oxen by droves are falling by the wayside, never again to bear the
yoke or put their shoulders to the cotton loaded wheels. Rain we must soon have or the transportation jig will
assuredly be up; the dust of the earth filling the eyes, nose, mouth and hair – making one feel gritty often and
dusty always – dust of which a man eats his peck monthly and breathes daily – a terrible, inhuman, diabolical
dust. A kingdom for a shower is the standing offer.” And not a shower bath, girls.

In his smooth flowing style, Huebner tells the following story of his cotton hauling experiences:

“Slave owners in Fayette county gave the Confederacy all the cotton they could spare. Those not owning slaves
were forced to suffer confiscation of one-half of their cotton crop. Hauling cotton was a branch of military
service that found favor among some Fayette county citizens; for, in spite of the long, hazardous journey, it was
safer than serving in the army. Before being permitted to haul cotton, the teamster had to procure a detail, a
contract with the government which pledged the teamster to haul at least five bales of cotton to Mexico, the round
trip not to take longer than three months. The contract provided that certain contingencies such as a broken
wheel, lost oxen and failure to secure food for the animals would be considered legitimate reasons for a tardy
return. Some of ----------

------- abandoned the ox-team, and proceeded on by steamer to New Orleans where they joined the Union forces.
These men later drew fat pensions. Christian Lomaun, and expert ox driver of the sixties, whose partner left his
ox team in Brownsville, performed the unusual feat of driving back both ox-teams from the border.

Since it was impossible to maintain a check on the drivers, killing time systematically was the order of the day
among some of them in order to increase the time between trips and to postpone compulsory military service.
The teamsters received for services rendered, twelve cents per pound of cotton transported – but in Confederate
money.

Fayette county teamsters hauled to Mexico not only cotton raised in Fayette county, but also cotton that was
raised in East Texas and in Louisiana. Cotton raised in these two sections was not hauled directly to Mexico, but
was dumped at certain convenient concentration points, from which, it was relayed to its destination. These
points were Alleytown, Bernard, Columbus in Colorado county, and La Grange and Round Top in Fayette county.
There were two cotton agents in Fayette county, Judge J. C. Stiehle, stationed in La Grange, and A. Meerscheidt,
at Round Top. Cotton sent to Fayette county was hauled to one of the following places for re-shipment to
Mexico: Brownsville, Mier, Rancho Davis, Laredo or Eagle Pass.

                                                         207
A cotton convoy usually consisted of from three to fifteen wagons. From five to seven yoke of oxen were
necessary to pull one wagon. It was necessary for teamsters to take along sufficient food for the entire trip, for
often food was not available. Procuring enough food for men and oxen was often quite an undertaking.

The difficulties of the Confederate, state and county governments were by no means ended when the cotton had
been hauled to the border. Here the cotton was likely to seized by the Mexicans, the Federals, or even by the
Confederates. On one occasion a convoy of eighteen wagons from Fayetteville was captured by Mexican bandits.
The Mexicans stripped the teamsters of everything - - cotton, wagons and ox-teams. The men had to thumb a ride
home or walk. Bryan Lane, an unfortunate member of this party, was killed by the Mexicans and, as a warning to
future teamsters, was buried with his hands and feet sticking out of the ground.

The Fayette County Commissioners in 1863 conceived the idea of buying cotton and selling it to Mexico for
relief of the county’s destitute war widows and orphans. In accordance with this plan, they bought thirty-two
bales of cotton from William J. Russel to haul it to Mexico. At King’s Ranch, the party was seized by General
Bee, who had been forced to evacuate Brownsville as a result of the Federal invasion. Negroes, teams and cotton,
according to Russel, were impressed into service by General Bee, who compelled Russel to sell him the cotton at
fifty cents per pound, Confederate money. When Russel made his report to the Commissioners’ Court, they
agreed to let him keep the money given him by Bee as a remuneration for freight charges.

Still another large shipment of cotton that was a total loss to the owner, belonged to William Neese of Warrenton.
He had sent thirty-eight bales of cotton to Mexico with the following teamsters in charge: J. C. Moss, F. Holman,
Conrad Tieman and Mano Garbardes. In Brownsville, Neese’s cotton was taken away from him by order of
General Brown, the Federal Commander in charge of the Forty-third Indiana Infantry, the Sixty-second Ohio (a
colored regiment), and the Second Texas Regiment. It was the colored Major of the Ohio contingent who
actually took possession of the cotton.

The fraud in the cotton business which aroused such indignation among the soldiers and patriotic citizens of
Texas was not entirely absent in the Fayette county teamsters’ trade. A Confederate law prohibited teamsters
from carrying more than ten bales a trip, and special agents were placed at Flatonia and at Gonzales to supervise
the transportation. By splitting with them, it became an easy matter to arrange with the agents to carry an extra
bale or two, and with cotton selling at forty cents per pound, such a rascally procedure was highly profitable.

The second of the surviving teamsters, John Speckels, eighty-five, and a peppy as a sophomore, recalls that the
Confederate government sponsored the first trip of cotton hauling that he made to Mexico. The ------

unsatisfactory schedule, Speckels, explained, was due to the fact that the necessary food for the men and oxen
through the long desert stretches along the last part of the journey was not promptly furnished by the Confederate
government. During the waiting period, perhaps the most satisfactory of all to the men, hunting parties were
organized, which netted rich bags of wild turkey and plenty of deer. Deer and turkey meat with rye coffee and
bread made a satisfying meal. The Speckels lad was unfortunate and contracted measles on the trip. A rain storm
came up and the sick boy spent the night trying to hold a flapping wagon cover back in place. He suffered a
relapse and as a result his hearing today is slightly impaired.

The exhausted men and oxen finally reached Eagle Pass. The place named as a cotton depot by the Confederate
government. Here the Confederate officials ordered machinery to be placed on the wagons and delivered in San
Antonio on the return trip. A sturdy band of German farmers, all neighbors of his father, were Speckel’s next
companions on a cotton hauling trip to Mexico. By agreeing to turn over over one-half the profits to the
government, Speckels secured permission to take cotton to Mexico. The hazardous journey was safely
negotiated. The cotton was sold in Rio Grande City for thirty-one cents per pound. The youth carried the money
paid him for his father’s cotton (in Doubloons) safely in his belt. The same financial success that attended
Speckels’ trip to Mexico has followed him throughout life. His business ability has made profitable all his
ventures. Speckels, in addition to the part that he played in transporting cotton during the Civil War, has assisted
materially in the industrial development of Fayette county. He represented his county in the State Legislature
during the years 1895-97.

Brownsville, on Texas soil, and Matamoras just across the Rio Grande, on the Mexican side, formed the hub of
the contraband cotton trade during the war days. These two places became the Sodom and Gemorrah of the
Southwest. It was said of Brownsville that it was at that time the rowdiest town in the most lawless state of the

                                                          208
Confederacy. And Matamoras, her sister city and Mecca for the riff-raff and adveuturers of three nations, did her
worst to outdo her American twin in sin. As a result of the cotton boom, Matamoras mushroomed in population
from eight thousand to forty thousand almost overnight. Men made millions in the cotton business. The Stillman
and Ranger fortunes are brilliant examples. The Ranger Brothers bought 650 bales of cotton from the Willis
family in Houston, at six cents a pound. The Willis’ were forced to sell at a sacrifice to prevent confiscation by
the Confederates, but neither side could confiscate cotton owned by Gus. Ranger because he was a German Jew
and an alien. He carted the cotton at once to Matamoras, from whence he succeeded in shipping it to England
when cotton prices were at their peak. He was said to have received the fabulous price of a dollar and eighty
cents per pound. He became later one of the “cotton kings” of the world.

People from every corner of the globe rushed to Matamoras, lured thereto by fantastic tales of immense fortunes
made with effortless ease. Union sympathizers and draft evaders drank beer with cotton agents, importers and
merchants of all nations. There was just one person who was “persona non grata” and that was an abolitionist.
Any person was privileged to shoot him down at sight, and all the year-round was open season on these vermin
and conviction for such sport was unknown.

Business was good in Matamoras during the war. Importers who opened with well-stocked shelves often had to
close within a week because their merchandise stocks were completely sold out. The town was filled to
overflowing with goods of all descriptions, and people rented and moved into thrown-up shanties. Even then,
constantly arriving merchandise could not be housed. Owners were forced to stack their goods on the ground and
expose it to nature in the raw – which is never mild. Ingenious Yankees shipped in a big lot of tarpaulins which
were hired out to the merchants at a dollar a night. Harrassed merchants used them to cover a valuable store load
of imported goods.

Such is the picture painted by George Huebner and John Speckels of the thriving business in contraband cotton
hauling and trading between Texas and Mexico during -------- .

"Death Claims Aged Native Born Citizen of Fayette, Monday"

Although in failing health for the past ten days, yet ever in a cheerful mood, even until Sunday night, and
entertaining visitors in his usual friendly manner, George Huebner, one of the oldest native born citizens of
Fayette county, died at his farm home shortly after the midnight hour of Sunday. He seemed to know, however,
that the oil was fading fast, and accepted the responsibility with grim resignation.

George Huebner was an interesting character; born on what was in the early days of the county known as the
Bluff, on a farm November 6, 1851, he grew to manhood on that farm. During the more than 84 years, in which
he lived in Fayette county, he was very observing and knew much of its history, which he ever delighted to refer
to when visited by relatives and friends.

George Huebner was a mere lad when he became a teamster in 1863, and one of which carried cotton into
Mexico. To dwell on the incidents of that period would require several columns, yet the Journal refrains not from
saying that his recitals of those days, when it required nerve to be a teamster and when one had to forever remain
on guard against the seizure of the staple he was hauling by either the Confederates, the Federals or the Mexican
governments. Yet, all turned out well, and the then young man grew in body, and in mind.

When death claimed George Huebner, it took the last member of the teamster force in this county; his fellow
teamster in the days that tried men's souls, was John C. Speckels, who died last year. With him was buried
Tuesday, the voice that often, very often entertained those who were seeking history and adventure stories.

After the civil war closed, and reconstruction days followed George Huebner returned to the farm and remained
thereon; he was united in marriage with Miss Lizetta Warnken, early settlers of the Bluff section, and farmed on
the same farm first settled by his father. To this union ------- children, the first born dying in infancy. The living
children are: Louis and Miss Helen Huebner of La Grange; Mrs. Forrest (Annie) McMillan of Ballinger; Geo. L.
Huebner of Lane City; Mrs. G. W. (Ella) Albrecht of La Grange and Miss Gussie Huebner, R.N., of San Antonio.

Surviving also, are one sister, Mrs. Eliza Richers of Bay City and three brothers, Andrew, Louis, and Franz

Huebner, all of near Bay City. George Huebner was the first to break the family tie of children born to his
parents. There are also nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild, and several nephews and nieces.

George Huebner, prevailed upon to make the race for County Commissioner of Beat No. 1, entered the race and
was elected and served for one term (1899-1900) refusing to stand for re-election. In closing the reference to an
honorable and life-long citizen, the Journal refrains from giving many of the interesting incidents of the eighty-
two years in which he lived only a short distance from La Grange. In bidding him to rest, we have given the last
respects to one who lived in the immediate vicinity of La Grange, ---------- the good of the county. May he sleep

Mrs. Lizzie Huebner

Friday morning Mrs. Lizzie Huebner, wife of George Huebner, died at the family residence on Colorado street,
following an illness that had lasted for a period of months. Mrs. Huebner, it may be said, came to her death as a
relief from much suffering. Devoted to her children, her departure will leave a vacancy, such as time alone shall
heal. We deeply sympathize with the husband and the sons and daughters; death comes into a home when we
would strive to defeat its approach, but as the flowers bud and bloom in Spring, and the leaves fall with the first
blast from the North, so inevitably we must all pay the common debt.

Mrs. Huebner, was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Warnken, early settlers of this section. For many years the
family resided upon a farm several miles from La Grange, and only a few years since removed to La Grange. The
separation or dissolution that has now occurred is the pang of sorrow that only those who have experienced a
similar affliction can well appreciate. She enjoyed the great privilege, however, of seeing her children become
grown, and to them was the comfort and solace that a dutiful child finds.

Sunday afternoon they carried her remains to the new cemetery and placed them to rest; in attendance upon the
last rites were sympathizing relatives and friends from the town and country and from neighboring cities. Beneath
a bed of beautiful flowers she sleeps peacefully.

The sympathy of the entire community is offered to the husband, the children, Misses Helen and Gussie, Louis
and Mrs. Gus. Albrecht of La Grange, Geo. Huebner of Bay City, Mrs. Forrest McMillan, Ballinger.

                    Louis Huebner, 70, Expires Suddenly

                    Louis Huebner, 70, passed away suddenly near La Grange late Saturday of a heart attack.

                    Mr. Huebner had been to his farm, about seven miles south of La Grange, and was enroute to his home
                    here when his pickup became stuck. He evidently exhausted himself trying to extricate the vehicle, and
                    then sent a Negro for help. When the colored man returned, Mr. Huebner was slumped over in the cab.
                    Peace Justice Lloyd Dippel held the inquest and rendered a verdict of death due to natural causes.

                    Mr. Huebner was born in the Bluff community on April 14, 1877, and had been a resident of this area all
                    his life. He was never married.

                    Funeral was held Monday at 2:30 p.m. at the Koenig Funeral Home Chapel with Dr. Guy B. Duff
                    officiating, and burial was in the New City Cemetery.

                    Surviving are two sisters, Mrs. Forest McMillan of Ballinger and Mrs. Gus Albrecht of La Grange; and
                    one brother, George L. Huebner, Jr. of Lane City.

                "La Grange Woman Is Fatally Injured In Automobile Accident"

                Miss Helen Huebner, owner and operator of the Helen-Marie Beauty Shop on Colorado street, died in
                the Bastrop Hospital Tuesday morning from injuries received in an automobile accident that occurred
                Sunday afternoon. In the automobile with Miss Huebner was Mrs. Roy Head, Mr. and Mrs. Harry
                Hlinsky and Miss Lillian Hartmann. Pitcher Hlinsky had fulfilled a contract to pitch in a ball game at
                Temple.

                The accident has been described to the Journal reporter in several ways, each different; it appears,
                however, that in driving on the highway, following a rain, the machine skidded, when near Bastrop,
                struck the loose shoulder of the highway and crashed down the 15-foot embankment. When help arrived
                it was fund that Miss Huebner's injuries were such as to warrant her being rushed to the Bastrop Hospital
                a mile or two distant.

                Mrs. Head is, as this is being prepared for the paper, a patient at the La Grange Hospital, and is in a
                dazed condition. When visiting the Hospital she could not be seen by the reporter, who was informed
                that she was to be denied all visitors for the day. Mr. and Mrs. Hlinsky and Mrs. Hartmann received
                minor injuries.

                While hopes were entertained that Miss Huebner's injuries were not as serious as reported, these hopes
                were shattered when Louis Huebner, a brother, and Miss Gussie Huebner, a sister, returned to La Grange
                late Monday with the statement that "it was, according to their opinion, a matter of hours." Miss
                Huebner died Tuesday morning. Mrs. G. W. Albrecht, also a sister, was at the bedside of the patient.

                Miss Huebner was the eldest daughter of the late Geo. Huebner, who died last May. For the past eight
                years she conducted a beauty shop at her home in this city, and was very successful. She is survived by
                two brothers, Louis of La Grange and Geo. L. Huebner of Bay City; Mrs. Forrest (Annie) McMillan of
                Ballinger, Mrs. G. W. (Ella) Albrecht of La Grange and Miss Gussie Huebner, R.N., of La Grange.

                The body was brought to La Grange, Tuesday and taken to the Koenig Funeral Home, and later to Miss
                Huebner's home, where funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock, Rev. J. E. Roth
                officiating. Interment was had at the new cemetery.

                Miss Gussie Huebner

                Miss Gussie Huebner, aged 45 years, 9 months, and 8 days, died at the home of her sister, Mrs. G. W.
                Albrecht in La Grange, Saturday, September 9. The body was taken to the Reichert Funeral Home where
                it lay in state until Sunday afternoon; it was then conveyed to the Presbyterian church on Travis street,
                and services were conducted by Rev. Guy B. Duff, local pastor. Interment was made in the new
                cemetery.

                Miss Huebner was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Huebner. and was born on the farm south of
                La Grange. She decided, after reaching womanhood, to become a nurse; impressed with the services a

                    trained nurse renders to a suffering patient, she entered the La Grange Training School and successfully
                    completed her studies and later became a registered nurse. Her services as such were of the most
                    commendable type. A few years ago she became afflicted with nerve trouble, and although receiving the
                    best care and medical attention, her affliction refused to yield to treatment and she gradually grew
                    weaker. It may be said, in respectful mention, that death came as a relief.

                    Miss Huebner is survived by her two brothers, Louis Huebner of near La Grange and Geo. Huebner of
                    Bay City; her sisters, Mrs. G. W. Albrecht of La Grange and Mrs. Forrest McMillan of Ballinger. There
                    are several nieces and nephews, and other relatives. To these we offer sincere sympathy.

Notes for Andrew E. Huebner:
The Matagorda County Tribune
Bay City, Texas
April 7, 1911

Great Cotton Country.

A. E. Huebner, one of the largest land holders in this county, is very enthusiastic over Matagorda county and the
prospects for her becoming one of the greatest cotton counties in Texas. He said that he and his two brothers
came to Matagorda county in 1886 and that in 1887 planted their first cotton crop. This they kept up for several
years and in all their many crops they did not experience a single entire failure, although one short crop was
recorded. The best crop was one of two bales to the acre and the rest ran from one-half to a bale.

In late years, however, the Huebner Brothers, whose holdings go beyond 10,000 acres of some of the finest land
in Matagorda county, have been stock raising and what cotton they have raised has only been incidental. But Mr.
Huebner says that cotton is not an experimental crop here by any means and that this county is as good for the
staple, if not better, than any in Texas.

He is a strong believer in diversification and gives an interesting account of what might be accomplished in this,
the brightest Mid-Coast county.

Andrew Huebner, Pioneer Cattleman Matagorda County, Dies At Age 94
First Came To County In 1886 To Raise Cattle

Mr. Andrew Huebner, pioneer cattleman of Matagorda County, died Thursday evening at 8 o’clock, following an
illness of long duration. He was 94 years of age and until recently was still “riding the range” with the younger
cowboys on his spread.

It was in 1886, sixty two years ago, when Mr. Huebner was then a man of 32 with many tales of the Civil War
still vividly in his mind, that he came to Matagorda County from Fayette County where he was born near La
Grange. He began then to buy land in the county. In 1909 he moved his family here where they have lived since.

Like many members of his family, he was extremely healthy with a constitution which allowed him to perform
duties which would have felled many men younger. He thrived on outdoor life and hard work, enjoying his
roundups with the enthusiasm of a tender foot.

At 94 one would have considered him at a ripe old age, but he was four years a junior to his sister, Mrs. Lillie
Richers who is now 98. And besides Mrs. Richers there is a younger brother surviving, Mr. Franz Huebner who is
now 90. Both reside in Bay City. Another brother, Louis, preceded him in death. He too, had reached near the
ninety mark at the time of his death.

Mr. Huebner is also survived by two daughters, Mrs. Ada Hurst of Bay City and Mrs. Lola H. Brown of Ft.
Worth; one son, M. D. Huebner of Bay City and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Taylor Bros., are in charge of the arrangements but announcement of the funeral is withheld awaiting arrival of
relatives.

In Memory of Mrs. Andrew Huebner

Today heaven is richer than it was on yesterday; yesterday, Bay City was richer than it is today. A mother, a fond
and faithful mother, has gone from us to her eternal home and has left an earthly home sad and desolate. Who can
fill a mother's chair? Whose hand so soft and caressing as that of mother? Mrs. Walter Brown, the eldest daughter
in the home, is one of us--a member of our Missionary Society and we want to here express our love for her in her
great sorrow, and we will try to help her bear her grief as only Christian companionship can. We, as the executive
committee of the Missionary Society have

Resolved, That we extend to Mrs. Brown, her father, sisters and brothers that love and sympathy in their dark
hour of sorrow that will help them more perfectly to trust in their Lord, their mother's God, for guidance and
direction. That we will emulate their mother in that seeing a duty, we do it, as she did it; also

Resolved, That a copy of this tribute be furnished the family , a copy be furnished The Tribune and News; also a
copy be spread on the record book of the society.

Huebner Rites At Bay City Are Set Today

BAY CITY, Dec 13 – Matagorda County Wednesday mourned the passing of a beloved pioneer, Franz Huebner,
91, who died at 11:30 PM Tuesday at his ranch home south of here.

MR. HUEBNER, one of the three largest landowners in Matagorda County, had lived in the county 65 years. He
was born in La Grange and when he came to the county to settle, Bay City was not in existence.

Funeral services will be held at 2:30 PM Thursday in the First Presbyterian Church here with the Rev. John W.
Lancaster, the pastor, officiating. Burial will be in Cedarville Cemetery.

He is survived by three sons, Adolph and John A. Huebner of Bay City, and Otto Huebner of Long Beach, Calif;
two daughters, Miss Pauline Huebner of Bay City and Mrs. Donald K. Poole of Brazoria; one sister, Mrs. Elise
Richers of Bay City, who is 102 years old; and two grandchildren, John A. Huebner Jr. and Mrs. Robert Coppock,
both of Bay City.

Mr. Huebner was the first person to plant rice in Matagorda County. He also pioneered the building of an
irrigation canal system for rice growers of the county.
He and two of his brothers, Louis and Andrew, brought in the first sack of rice of the season for so many years
that it became a tradition in the county. Louis lived to be 88 and Andrew died at 94. He also survived a third
brother, George, who lived at La Grange.

Most of Matagorda Peninsula was owned by Mr. Huebner, who used it for winter grazing for his cattle, of which
he had one of the largest herds in the county.

Marriage Notes for George Huebner and Leta Taylor:
As was reported in the newspaper of the day:
Surprise Announcement
A delightful event of Wednesday was an afternoon at home, given by Mrs. M. D. Taylor, ostensibly for the
enjoyment of forty-two, but which developed into the interesting announcement of the engagement and
approaching marriage of her daughter, Leta Belle, to George Lee Huebner. The wedding is to be on June 20th.
The bit of news was made known by "A Little Bird Told Me," little Virginia Mick and Audry Lacey rolling a tea-
wagon decorated with red, white, and blue, on which
rested a small tree with birds of every hue. Little Virginia announced, "A red bird told me to bring this tree;" and
Audry "A blue
bird told me to tell the young ladies to see why I brought this tree." Each young lady took a bird, reading: 1st
message, "A little bird told me of an engagement in the air;" 2nd, "And it will be shortly be announced;" 3rd,
"The bride is not unknown to us;" 4th, "There will be a Maid of Honor;" 5th, "And a best man;" 6th, "But what's
their names or whars their hames I dinna care to tell;" No. 7 tells us that a short march will tell. The wedding
march was played by Miss May Etta Taylor. The march begins, being led by Miss Leslie Mick. A merry chase
was gone through each room and hall, and as the dining room is
approached the music gets faster and louder, as the happy crowd enters, where they find "A kewpie bridal party in
the center of a beautifully decorated table, and a kewpie holding a card, making the announcement;
congratulations were freely extended. Dainty refreshments were served by the Misses Taylor, assisted by Misses

Ora Hooper, Willie Belle Hurst and Leslie Mick.

Leta Belle and George Lee met at a house party on Andrew Huebner's farm near Bay City. George had borrowed
some mules and returned them while the party was going on. He was invited to stay for dinner and stayed till
midnight.

As was reported in the newspaper of the day:

They were married at the Bride's home on Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m. by the Reverend T. C. Johnson,
Presbyterian Minister, of Houston. Preceding the arrival of the wedding party Miss Pauline Huebner, of Bay City,
sweetly sang "Oh Promise Me," followed by the wedding march, played by Miss Etta Taylor, to accompaniment
of which the bridal party passed down the stairs to the parlor, beautifully decorated in green and white, and stood
under a large white wedding bell. The bride made
a charming picture in gown of gray shiffon tafater with a shower boquet of brides roses and sweet peas. Mrs.
George Mick, sister of the bride, and Mrs. Van Arnold, of Florence, Ala., Cousin, acted as matrons of honor.
Miss Marguerite Huebner, as maid of honor, looked lovely in a suit of copenhagen blue tafater, and carried an
arm boquet of pin gladiolas, Mr. Dudley Huebner, of Bay City, acting as best man. After congratulations and best
wishes were extended the young couple tried to slip away without being seen, but brides and grooms propose and

Huebner-Taylor

One of the prettiest weddings to ever have been solemnized in this section took place at Iago yesterday morning at
10:30 o’clock, at the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. Marcus D. Taylor, the contracting parties being Mr.
George Huebner, a very prominent young planter of this city, and Miss Leta Belle Taylor, the beautiful and
accomplished daughter of Mrs. Marcus D Taylor, and of one of the foremost families in this section of the State.
The ceremony was performed by Rev. T. C. Johnston, a Presbyterian divine of Houston.

The home was beautifully decorated for the occasion and about one hundred guests assembled from many parts of
this and Wharton Counties.

The matrons were Mrs. George Mick of Iago and Mrs. Arnold of New Orleans, the attendants being Mr. Dudley
Huebner of this city and Miss Marguerite Taylor, sister of the bride. Miss Pauline Huebner, in a beautifully
impressive manner, sang, “Oh Promise Me,” accompanied by Miss Marguerite Taylor.

Immediately after the ceremony the wedding party left via automobile for Houston, from which point they will
visit several other places of interest, prior to returning to Bay City where they will make their home.

Mr. Huebner had made this city and immediate vicinity his home for practically a life-time, is of one of the
county’s best families, is very popular himself and has a large circle of friends. The bride is of one of the oldest
and most prominent families in this country and is also very popular. The friends of both extend the heartiest
congratulations.

Among those in attendance were the following, from Bay City: Mrs. Franz Huebner and daughters, Misses
Pauline and Marguerite, and son, John; Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Eidman, Mrs. A. Richers, Miss Richers and Freddie
Richers, Mr. A. Huebner, Mrs. R. A. Kleska, Mrs. L. W. Brown and two children, Miss Grace Williams, Dudley
Huebner and Bernard Hurst.


Excerpts from an interview of Leta Belle by George Lee Huebner, Jr. and Nancy Allen Huebner:

                                                           228
"I taught at Iago 3 years before I married. We sent out invitations to all the school parents and everybody - the
whole town was invited if they wanted to. The reason I said that - because I got about 300 presents. I had more
presents, I tell you - nice ones, and a whole lot of cut glass - more than anything else. And anyway, we were
married in the morning, and then we ate dinner in Richmond and went down to the Bristol Hotel and stayed all
night at the Bristol Hotel and went down to Galveston the next morning and spent the next day and night down in
Galveston."

Did you go on the train?
"No, we went in the car. He had a Saxon Roadster. I don't suppose they make the Saxons anymore. I thought
they wouldn't have so much trouble, you know, with such a big to-do, but it was a big thing anyway. A lot of
them stayed overnight - the guests. And Kiki, of course, fed them all."

Why did your minister come all the way from Houston?
"We didn't have a minister there - you see Kiki organized the Sunday school and we just had a visiting minister
when you could get one. That was Dr. Johnson. He's the one from Ireland. I guess he's dead and gone by now.
I've got his picture in there."

("... the couple tried to slip away without being seen" from the newspaper clipping from the wedding.
"We did, and Bernard got in front of the car and wouldn't get out of the way. I haven't heard the announcement
party notes (newspaper clipping) in a long time. I know we did, and we had a big cake pan that was made in the
shape of a heart, and I guess they used angel food cake recipe or something, anyway some white cake and it's a
great big heart about like this
(circle made with whole arms) and it's hanging on the wall out there in the little house. Kiki had it made when
Loudie married because they wanted a big wedding cake and nobody had a pan like that and so she had the
people in Wharton to make one for them - the blacksmith I guess you'd call him. And that's the last cake I made -
one for Billy's 6th birthday and it takes about 3 recipes of Angel food cake to fill it and so I was going to make a
big cake for him and for some crazy reason - I guess 'cause there was too much dough in it for it to cook through,
the thing fell. It just went down to about an inch and one-half through. It really ruined it - that cake wasn't good
at all and so we got along without the cake, but I never made another cake. I haven't made a cake since then. I
said there's two things I'm not going to ever do any more - I'm not going to ever cook a roast and I'm not going to
make a cake."

whispered, “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter thou into the joys of thy home eternal,” and the great
spirit of Marion Taylor Huebner crossed the bar and joined his mother who had been waiting 13 years for him.

He was a man with charity towards all and malice toward none; was loved and respected by all who knew him.
As a husband he was devoted and faithful; as a father, kind and indulgent; a loving son and brother, and as a
friend, loyal and true.

Just 46, and they say he is dead. Not so, for nothing dies, but all things live on forever, they disappear from our
mortal sight but they are living in a cleaner atmosphere, a higher altitude.

Death is only a short avenue through which we must pass before entering the broad plain of eternal life.

It is only the sifting of the veil, only the taking of a single step when the green pastures and fountains of living.

We who loved him cannot understand why he was taken away when he was needed so, but we do know that God
makes no mistakes and that he will not comfortless His children who trust Him, for –
“He fights for us when cannot fight:
He comforts us in the darkest night.
The sorrow that bares us down, He bares,
And loves and pardons because He cares.”

He leaves a loving family, many relatives and friends who will ever miss him, but who, in god’s own time, will
join him beyond the Bar. ‘Till such a time, Lord, teach us all to say: “Thy will be done.”

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2:30 in the Kaster & Maxon chapel, the Rev. R. S. McKee
officiating. Burial was in Evergreen cemetery. Floral offerings were lavish and beautiful. ---- waters, where

                    Lovely arrangements of white carnations, stock, and greenery were effectively placed on the altar where

                    and her veil, of bridal illusion, which extended the entire length of the train, was held in place by a
                    headdress of lace and orange blossoms. Her only ornament was a string of pearls. She carried a boquet of

                    A reception for the family and intimate friends was held at the home of the bride’s mother. The
                    traditional wedding colors of white and green were featured in the floral arrangements. The bride’s table,
                    laid with an imported linen cloth, held the ring cake and an arrangement of white blossoms flanked by

Linen Shower for Miss Huebner

Prominent among the social affairs of the week was the hospitality inspired by the approaching marriage of Miss
Lillie Huebner to Mr. H. J. Hauck of Valley Falls, Kan., tendered this interesting bride by her sister, Mrs. Walter
Brown, Tuesday afternoon from 4:30 to 6 o’clock, taking the form of a linen shower.

The Brown home was lovely in its decorations of pink and white, and cut flowers and
ferns added a most artistic touch. Mrs. Brown was assisted in receiving by Miss Emma
Lee Lewis. Preceding the arrival of the fair bride, Mrs. I. L. Pitluk gave added pleasure
upon this happy occasion in her selection of “Do I love You?” the cultivated voice of
the singer being a delightful medium of expression of such tender sentiments. Following
the last sweet strains of the lovely song, the tender melody of the bridal march, in

                                                              234
caressing sweetness, heralded the approach of the bride and her maids, preceded by two
lovely little flower girls, Willidene Brown and Lucile Gaines, scattering pink and white
rose petals everywhere in the path of the bride, until seated in her chair of state under a
canopy of pink and white. Gift after gift was brought forth by the bride’s dainty maids,
Misses Ada Huebner, Paula Huebner and Lois Moore, disclosing many lovely pieces of
handsome linen, accompanied by good wishes expressed to poetry and song, each being
read by the maid of honor, Miss Hilma Horner of Schulenberg, attired in a handsome
gown of pink satin.

Following the gifts, the full, rich voice of Mrs. Reginald Berrien White was heard in the
exquisite selection, “You - and Love,” particularly appropriate to this delightful number,
the guests were invited into the dining room, where the table, a vision of pink and white
loveliness, bade cordial good greeting to each member around the board – a course of
delicious cream and angel food cake. Toasts to the bride and good wishes galore followed
the completion of this feast, and all repairing to the parlor, a most delightful finale was
had in the ever dear “Oh Promise Me,” rendered in Mrs. Porter’s usual pleasing style,
Mrs. Edgar Hawkins charmingly lending her assistance as accompanist for the different
vocal numbers and the delightful wedding march.

Hauck – Huebner

One of the loveliest weddings which it has been Bay City’s good fortune to witness in many days was that of Mr.
J. H. Hauck of Valley Falls, Kan., and Miss Belle Huebner, which took place last Wednesday evening at 2:15
o’clock at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church.

The church in which this happy event took place was beautifully and profusely decorated in green and roses and
trailing vines, lending it a most pleasing and artistic appearance, and harmonizing delighfully with the occasion as
a whole.

The sacred ceremony which made the happy pair as one was performed by Rev. John Sloan, priest in charge of St.
Mark’s Parish Church, and it was a beautifully delivered ceremony and impressive.

The attendants were Mrs. Walter Brown, matron of honor; Miss Hilma Horner, maid of honor; Misses Ada and
Paula Huebner, Miss Taylor and Miss Lois Moore, maids, with Willideen Brown and Lucille Gaines as flower
girls.

Mr. Legler of Valley Falls, Kan., was “best man” on this occasion, and sang “O Promise Me.” Mr. Legler has a
magnificent voice, which filled the church with its cadence and delighted his hearers. Mrs. Reginald Berrien
White sang “I Love You Truly” in a most equisite manner. Both were accompanied by Mrs. Edgar Hawkins.

After these delightful renditions the bridal march was formed. The beautifully dressed flower girls came first then
the maids, who were attired in handsome pink gowns and large, white picture hats, and carrying Marie
Antoinnette baskets of pink roses and ferns. The bride, on the arm of her father followed, gowned in handsome
white satin with elaborate lace garniture and seed pearl trimmings, carrying a shower boquet of bride’s roses.

The groom was escorted to the altar by his best man. Both were attired in the customary conventional black dress
suits.

After the ceremony the bridal party repaired immediately to the home of the bride, where followed an informal
reception. Here a pink and white color scheme throughout the home was carried out. From the chandelier, in the
dining room, a basket pendant held the ribbons holding the thimble, ring and dime, drawn as each cut cake, the
cards withal containing good wishes and prophesies for those not lucky enough to draw something. After the
reception the couple left over the Brownsville road for Valley Falls, where a handsomely appointed home awaits
them.

marriage to Mr. Bernard Hurst will be solemnized on the night of the 28th.

                                                       237
The decorations were in the bride’s colors, pink and white. The bride-to-be was conducted to a seat of honor, a
handsome decorated chair, by Master Robert Huebner, the guests clustering around Miss May Etta Taylor offered
good wishes and greetings and announced that it was time for the express to arrive. Coming down the long hall
was Master Raleigh Huebner and little Miss Lillian May Hauck drawing a large decorated express wagon loaded
to overflowing, driven by little Master Huebner Hauck, dressed in white and holding the ribbons as if he had done
nothing else through his short life. The wagon was stopped in front of the bride-to-be and she needed no second
bidding to start opening the many packages which were numerous and useful.

Dainty refreshments of brick cream in pink and white and angel food cake were served by Misses Willodene
Brown, Marguerite Kehrer and Jessie May Hurst.

Hurst – Huebner Wedding

Having previously been invited by Mr. Andrew Huebner, to be present at the marriage of his daughter, Ada Irene,
to Mr. Bernard J. Hurst, the guests began to arrive at the handsome country home, Tuesday evening about 8:30
o’clock. They were received at the door by Mrs. M. T. Huebner, invited into the spacious reception hall and
asked to register in the pretty “Bride’s Book,” which was presided over by Mrs. R. A. Kleska. They then passed
on down the hall to examine the beautiful and handsome wedding presents, which were displayed on a long table.
Among them , were three checks, each for one hundred dollars.

In a short time the guests had all arrived, about fifty in number, most of whom were relatives and very few
intimate friends.

At 9 o’clock the Rev. John Sloan of Houston took his stand in the parlor under a beautiful canopy of evergreens
and Shasta daisies. A pretty background being formed of many ferns, pot plants and palms.

Accompanied by Miss May Etta Taylor of Iago, Miss Pauline Huebner sang in her sweet voice “At Dawning.”
After which “Lohengren’s,” the ever popular and impressive wedding march, was rendered by Miss Pauline
Huebner, who presided at the piano, and Mr. R. A. Kleska on the violin.

The matrons of honor, Mrs. Lola Brown and Mrs. H. J. Hauck of Valley Falls, Kansas, sisters of the bride, in
handsome white dresses, led the way through the artistically decorated hall and dining room and into the parlor,
between the aisles of pink ribbons, followed by Miss Willie Bell Hurst, as maid, in pink chiffon, carrying a lovely
bouquet of pink gladiolas and ferns, with Mr. Dudley Huebner in handsome black suit. Behind them came little
three-year-old Herman Hauck, in all white, carrying the ring in a white rose. Next came the bride leaning upon
the arm of the happy groom. She was a vision of loveliness robed in white Georgette crepe de Chine, trimmed in
handsome lace and pearls. On her head rested a wreath of orange blossoms, from which trailed a long veil. She
carried in her arms an exquisite shower bouquet. The groom looked very handsome in the conventional black.

When they reached the canopy, under which they were to be married, still keeping step to the music, they
gracefully fell in line before the minister awaiting them, who then read the impressive Episcopal ceremony.
When they were pronounced man and wife, congratulations were heartily extended. A happier and more smiling
couple were never seen.

Misses Jessie May Hurst of Iago and Marguerite Huebner served iced fruit punch throughout the evening.

After pleasant conversation and more music by Miss Huebner and Mr. Kleska the young people were invited into
the dining room to cut the bride’s cake. A basket of Shasta daisies hung from the chandellier, also little shower
bouquets with fortune cards on the end, reached down to an immense heart-shaped cake, ornamented with a
miniature kewpie bridal party.

Ice cream and delicious angel food cake were then served. The bride stole away a short time, but soon returned in
a very becoming suit of brown, with hat, gloves and boots to match. After bidding everyone goodbye, the happy
couple departed for a short wedding trip – leaving the guests curious as to their destination.

                     JULIA DENCKER SUCCUMS

                     Miss Julia Dencker, aged 67 years, a life-long resident of Cedar, this county, died at the La Grange
                     Hospital, 25 October 1932, Tuesday afternoon at 5 o'clock, after an illness of only a few days. Miss
                     Dencker was the last survivor of the family of Dr. and Mrs. Friedrich Dencker, who in the early days,
                     were among the most respected people of this county. Her mother died when she was 14 years old, her
                     father died 36 years ago. The happiest days of her life were her childhood days, she frequently referred
                     to them as such. Her interested friends and relatives had suggested that she remove to La Grange in
                     order to be near her, but no, she cherished the memories of the long ago, remained on the farm left her by
                     her parents, enjoyed raising fine stock, treated them humane and thus spent her last days, not in the old
                     folks home, but in a small cottage erected on the
                     highway several years ago. Miss Dencker was an educated woman, fond of music, of good voice, an
                     excellent pianist. Neighbor's children ever found a welcome at her home. She was born 21 August 1865.
                     The family consisted of Dr. and Mrs. Dencker and four daughters. Louise died in infancy; two, Mrs.
                     Gertrude Bauch and Mrs. Minna Bauch, each left two sons, Carl and Rudolph Bauch of Goliad, Fritz
                     and Willie Bauch of Mexico and California, who with their families are her only survivors. The funeral
                     will be held from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ernst Knigge in La Grange, Thursday afternoon at 1:30
                     o'clock; interment will be at the Cedar Cemetery.

Notes for Gertrude Dencker:
La Grange Journal
September 12, 1889

The Journal has been informed that a great deal of sickness prevails in the country, especially in Cedar
neighborhood, where several cases have terminated fatally, among them Mrs. Baugh and her sister, daughters of
Dr. Denker. The continued rains are a great drawback to those who are sick. It is to be hoped that there may be a
change of weather and a general improvement of the health of the people.

“Black Beans of Death”
(From The American-Statesman)

It is a cold, gloomy day in March of 1843. A dismal wind startles weird echoes in the trees and canons of
mountainous country near Salado, Mexico – rising in the mountains and sweeping with vicious insistence down to
the little settlement where one hundred and seventy-six men are doomed to die.

In their hearts there is little hope of release. They sit in the stifling air of a rude shed, converted into a death
chamber from a barn, and wait orders to march before a firing line and surrender their lives for Texas. Awaiting
the surrender of their all – these who had scorned all other surrender as not befitting men who had sworn
themselves to win freedom for their state.

Their clothes were worn threadbare, their feet were sore and lacerated from those long days and nights on the
mountains without food or shelter while they sought the way back to Texas. Bodies were weak and helpless from
the long exposure and in their minds was no thought but the release death would bring. In the hands of the
Mexican general Santa Anna they hoped for no mercy.

Guards enter the room and silently place the men in heavy iron chains, ordering each to stand in line as he was
bound. No word is said – then one of the Mexicans holds an official looking document to the light and reads
orders that chill the blood of every man who heard them. They had expected death – death for them all according
to the will of Santa Anna. Their capturer, General Mexia, had written his relentless commander, asking freedom
for the prisoners, and Santa Anna had granted that only one man out of every ten would be shot and that the
others might be spared.

In the history of Texas is written many chapters of dramatic happenings, but none more powerful in ironic twists
of fate than the scene that followed the reading of the cruel orders.

An officer, holding an earthen mug in his hand, comes into the shed where the Texans were confined and bound
in chains. In the mug were one hundred and seventy-six beans, the number of the prisoners. One hundred and
fifty-nine beans were white and seventeen were black. The prisoners were each to draw a bean from the mug.
The black beans meant death.

To tell the rest would be only to repeat a story known to all Texans, for the destiny of the Mier prisoners – men
who dared to enter the enemy’s country out-numbered many times, to save their comrades captured by General
Woll at San Antonio – will be re-told and remembered through many generations.

It is from the lips of Mrs. Franciska Vogt of La Grange that the story was recently recounted with a new and
gripping angle on the well known incidents – for Mrs. Vogt is the one person living who was present and
remembers when the bones of these seventeen men were brought back to Texas soil and buried on the bluff
overlooking her home in La Grange. And it was on her 93rd birthday that she recalled that solemn ceremony of
1848, when as a child of 13 she rode bareback to the site where the Mier prisoners were re-buried with honor and
praise.


                                                          313
“Ah, I shall never forget how it looked – that procession of men riding mules and leading others with the bones of
the Texans slung in gunny-sacks across the backs of the animals,” she said, her eyes once more glowing with the
amazement she must have felt as a child. “They came right into town, and when I heard what was going to be
done, I remember I ran and jumped on my pony and raced to the top of the hill for the ceremony.”

“I do not remember much of what happened, except that it was all very solemn and quiet as the bones were
carefully and tenderly buried up there on the hill. Then the monument was put up – the big limestone tomb under
which are the remains of those seventeen men who drew the black beans of death.”

Mrs. Vogt recalled that she was unable to get astride her horse after it was all over – remembering, as she says,
more of the smaller details that made an impression on a young mind.

“I know it was some man from Austin who helped me – some nice man who held my horse and helped me swing
up to ride back home again, but I do not know who, though I still remember how he looked that day,” she said.

The little old lady who will soon reach the century mark also told the story of the man who took the black bean
drawn by a comrade away from him and died in his stead. The incident may be legend or true, but Mrs. Vogt
states that she has heard it all her life and believes its veracity. It is told that the first to draw the fatal lot was a
man with a wife and children back at home, and that his friend forced him to exchange the beans so that he might
live.

Though the names of this Damon and Pythias of Texas history may be lost in the maze of years, what a monument
to friendships that face life and death with equal unselfishness!

The burial of the Mier prisoners is only one of the incidents of early Texas history that can be told in the first
person by the gray-haired and smiling grandmother and great-grandmother of La Grange. She came to Fayette
county from Germany in 1847 with her mother and brothers and sisters, following the father George Willrich,
who had come the previous year and located a home. Mrs. Vogt tells that the state gave 300 acres of land to
every man with a family who settled in that country then – land as wild as if it had never been touched by man.

“These hills were thick with wild animals and rattle snakes, but I got used to them and remember riding all over
the country by myself as a child,” she relates. “I will always remember one time when I was going after the
horses for my mother and came up on a lot of commotion in the woods. When I got to a clearing, I saw six
wolves tearing at the body of a deer they had killed.”

Mrs. Vogt’s father was a prominent judge in the “old country,” and came to America with many other immigrants
during those years who sought freedom and prosperity in the new land. He had a large family of children whose
children and children’s children are numbered among the settlers of the state. Mrs. Vogt’s own children are Mrs.
Ernest Knigge of La Grange, with whom she makes her home; E. R. Vogt of Schulenburg, Julius Vogt of
O’Quinn, Mrs. Fritz Nollkamper, Fritz Vogt, La Grange.

The story of the Mier prisoners will again be placed before the people of Texas during the next legislature, it was
recently learned, as the senator and representative from that part of the state, Senator Gus. Rusek of Schulenburg
and Rep. James Pavlica of Flatonia, are to ask that 50 acres of land along the top of the bluff where the men are
buried, be purchased by the state for a state park and a memorial to their heroism. The land is available for
purchase at this time, and as the location is ideal scenically for a beautiful recreation resort, they will use all their
power to pass the bill creating the Mier park for Texas.

A monument already stands on the court house square at La Grange, erected several years ago by the state “to the
memory of the men who drew the black beans and were shot at Salado, Mexico, on March 24th, 1843,” and to
Capt. N. H. Dawson and his men who were massacred at Salado, Texas, in September of 1842. The remains of
some of these men are also said to rest with the Mier prisoners in the tomb at La Grange, brought back by the
group who went by mule train on their errand of such grim homage.

To follow the trail of these one hundred and fifty-six men who were spared in the fatal lottery at the haciendo of
Salado would be to wonder whether or not the man who saved his friend did not leave him the worse fate. Dying
of unbearable hardships on their march into Mexico City, wasting away in dungeons, shot while trying to escape
and a few finally winning their way back to Texas, the group one by one went the way of their comrades who
drew death from the glass of chance that day. But no matter what followed for them, it would surely be safe to

                                                             314
imagine that none experienced deeper agony of suspence, or grief for his comrades, than when they plunged their
hands into the little grains of matter, colored black and white, that meant a promised freedom or a black doom.

"Grandmother Vogt Passes Away"

Reaching the age of 95 years, 5 months and 7 days, Grandmother Franziska Vogt, one of our most interesting and
esteemed citizens closes the last chapter of her life 24 April 1931. She was born 17 October 1835 in Germany and
came to Fayette County with her mother, Mrs. Geo. Willrich, and sisters and brothers in the year 1847. Her
father, a prominent judge in the old country, had come over the year before to locate a home for the family.
Texas gave three hundred acres of land to every man with family who settled upon its soil, land seemingly
untouched by man, with wild beasts and snakes roaming at will. They went through many trials during these days,
and to hear grandmother recite some of the history of her younger days was interesting. In 1928 the Journal
reproduced an account entitled: "Black Beans of Death", a story told by the subject of this sketch on her 93rd
birthday anniversary, which had been published in the Austin American. She recalled the solemn ceremony of
1848, when a child of thirteen she rode horseback to the site where the Mier prisoners of war were reburied with
honor and praise, on Kreische's Bluff. After the death of her husband, John Vogt, 22 years ago, she continued to
live at the old home near O'Quinn, where her youngest son, Julius, now resides. About ten years ago she came to
live in her declining years with her daughter Mrs. E. Knigge of this city. It may truly be said of her, she won the
love of all with whom she came in contact, and will be greatly missed.

Mrs. Vogt was the mother of eight children, five sons and three daughters, of whom three preceded her in death:
Mrs. H. Schroeder of this city and Geo. Vogt of Schulenburg; Hans died at the age of 8 years. The living are:
E.R. Vogt of Schulenburg, Mrs. Fritz Nollkamper, Mrs. E. Knigge and Fritz Vogt of this city and Julius Vogt of
O'Quinn. Twenty-three grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, besides two step sisters, Mrs. Anna Gross of
San Antonio and Mrs. Louise Koehler of this city are among the sorrowing relatives. Interment took place at the
Cedar Cemetery Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. C.O. Boatman officiating.

IN MEMORY OF JOHN VOGT

When the visit of the death angel was made to the home of John Vogt, near Cedar, last week, Tuesday, September
14, 1909, the spirit of one of Fayette County's oldest and most beloved citizens journeyed to the far-off home to
dwell with the great majority who have gone before. The entire vicinage where he was most highly respected and
revered was wrapt in sorrow and heartfelt expressions of regret were frequent. John Vogt was born in Schleswig-
Holstein, Germany May 9, 1832, and when a lad of seventeen years emigrated to America, landing at Galveston
August 31, 1849. His journey to Fayette was made in the primitive manner of that time, by ox-wagon. For
several years after his arrival he earned his living by daily labor. In the year 1857, January 13, he was united in
marriage with Miss Franziska Willrich, one of the then popular belles of Cedar. The ceremony occured at the
home of Dr. Dencker, which home still stands and shelters a daughter of the doctor. After one year's residence at
this place, the family removed to the home which was the deceased's until the final call was made and he passed
out of the knowledge of earthly matters. The union was blessed with eight children, one of whom died many
years ago. The seven living are: Mrs. Hermann Schroeder of Cedar, E. R. Vogt of Schulenburg, Mrs. Fritz
Nollkamper of Swiss Alp, George Vogt of Swiss Alp, Fritz Vogt of La Grange, John Vogt of Cedar and Mrs.
Ernst Knigge of La Grange. Seventeen grand children and one great grandchild also mourn the loss of good old
Papa Vogt.

Wednesday morning of last week the funeral was held from the old homestead and the remains, followed by an
immense cortege, were conveyed to the Cedar Cemetery and laid to rest with beautiful and impressive
ceremonies. Rev. Kern, pastor of the Lutheran Church at Swiss Alp, spoke of the good qualities of the deceased
and commited his spirit to the care of the Maker. Judge Willrich, who is related to the family, also spoke at the
grave dwelling on the ennobling life led by his relative. Mr. Vogt was one of the Texas Confederate soldiers. At

the last reunion, held here in May, he was unable to take part. At a former reunion the remaining soldiers of what
once was a strong company were photographed. There were not many present but the picture shows the faces of
determined men. It was this picture the writer was shown when he last visited the home of the deceased. He
cherished this with the pride characteristic of the grizzeled old veterans of today, who, in their youth, shouldered
their muskets in a cause they believed right. It was at that time I learned to know more of Grandpa Vogt and to
love him for his goodness of heart and his consideration for the wants and rights of others. He is gone now
sleeping that long sleep that knows no awakening, but which is recorded as being the rest from which we will all
arise some sweet day to share the blessing of the Messiah.

SERIOUSLY ILL
Little Hope Held Out for Recovery of Patient

As we go to press the condition of Mrs. Hermann Schroeder, who has been ill for some time, is such that little
hope is held out for her recovery. Family relatives, nurse and doctor are doing all in their power to stay the
approach of death, but the inevitable is apt to follow ere this reaches our readers.

GONE TO HER REWARD
Death Claimed Another Good Woman After Long Illness.

Died Wednesday afternoon, Mrs. Margaret Schroeder, wife of Herman Schroeder, manager of the Farmers
Lumber Company. Mrs. Schroeder had been suffering for months and during the past five weeks had been under
the constant care of a trained nurse and physician. It seemed that the battle was entirely one-sided, she grew
weaker each day and finally; without a struggle lapsed into eternal sleep.

                                                             316
Mrs. Schroeder was the eldest daughter of Mrs. Franciska Vogt, widow of the late John Vogt, and was the second
of the children to die within a year. Our sympathy is offered to the husband and the son, John Schroeder, and
daughter, Miss Louise, and the brothers and sisters, and yet we cannot refrain from saying, in addition, that our
heart bleeds for the good old mother who has witness the going of her children and mourn their loss.

As a good wife and mother, Mrs. Schroeder was known to many. Her greatest pleasure in life, in addition to the
attributes mentioned, was to do good to others. Willing to help, willing to give and assist in the relief of those in
need, she has left much to keep alive her memory and many who will miss her.

Her remains were placed to their last rest in the new cemetery Thursday afternoon, in attendance and assisting in
the last sad rites, being a very large number from the city and country and other towns. Rev. Arnold officiating,
paid a strong tribute to the deceased.

extended to our wife and mother during her illness. For your manifestations of friendly concern, and for your
kind words of sympathy we wish to thank you. It helps us to bridge the chasm of sorrow to know that, when death
came and claimed our wife and mother, you were there to sympathize, to console and to comfort us. For what you
did, we say again, our sincerest thanks to all.

Death Comes After Year's Illness To Hermann Schroeder

Sunday, May 19, Hermann Schroeder, a highly respected citizen of La Grange, completed the 78th mile post of
his early pilgrimage; he was abed, and had been ill for more than a year, frequently rallying from the weakening
attacks and sufficiently so to permit leave of the sick room and a drive about the city. Monday the oil of his life's
lamp grew less, he struggled against the shadow, he died at 7:00 o'clock, early evening.

Rev. Guy B. Duff, pastor of the Presbyterian church, officiated at the home and at the cemetery, Tuesday
afternoon, and interment was had at the new cemetery. Relatives, hundreds of friends, many from a far distance
and from the neighborhood of La Grange, paid reverence to one they esteemed highly while he lived among them.
The profusion of flowers, told one story, and the tributes another. Hermann Schroeder, everybody's friend,
honorable and upright in all things, was placed to rest.

Hermann Schroeder was born in Schwaan, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany May 19, 1857; he emigrated to
Texas at the age of 16 years, landing at Galveston, December 30, 1879, absolutely penniless. Delighted with his
new home, deciding to become a citizen of the United States, he took the oath of allegiance later and remained a
loyal citizen.

He was taken under the care and protection of his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. John Frederich Meyer of Cedar,
and helped with the he farm work. Later he purchased the Meyer farm, (200 acres) and continued thereon until
1910. Proffered the position of manager of the Farmers Lumber Company, he accepted and remained in charge

                                                           317
of that institution until his enfeebled condition forced him to retire.

Unpretentious at all times; faithful and conscientious in his work, no greater tribute can be added than, "he was a
man to know and to respect."

Mr. Schroeder was united in marriage, October 20, 1878 with Miss Margarethe Vogt, eldest daughter of the late
John Vogt and wife Franziska Vogt, nee Willrich, of Cedar, Texas. Mrs. Schroeder preceded him in death, April
3, 1918; with his daughter he lived on South Franklin street until beckoned to follow.

Mr. Schroeder is survived by his son John Schroeder and wife Pauline; his daughter, Miss Louise Schroeder, Mrs.
Marguerite Willmann and her husband Frank J. Willmann; one son, Fritz Schroeder, died in infancy.

County Surveyor E. R. Vogt, so The Journal has been informed, is on the sick list this week. Nothing serious, but
sufficient to make him forsake his office duties for a few days.

                                                              318

E. R. VOGT FAYETTE CO. RESIDENT BURIED MONDAY

Mr. E. Rudolph Vogt passed away at the family residence here on Sunday, February 25, 1940. Death resulted
from an injured hip and leg which was hurt when he fell about two months ago. Worn and weak from an active
life, his frail body could not withstand the severe pain. "Judge" Vogt, as he was called by most of the people in
the community, was born October 15, 1859, near Cedar, in Fayette County. He received his early education in
the Fayette County schools and as a young man took private lessons in Civil Engineering. When he had reached
the age of nineteen years, he started out to work as a surveyor and for 60 years he followed that profession.

On December 6, 1883, he won the hand of Miss Anna Nollkamper, who has lived through these many years at his
side. The wedding ceremony took place in Cedar. In the year 1888, he was elected to the office of county
surveyor and he held that office for 50 years. For the past 38 years he had been justice of the peace in this
precinct and during that term of years has had only two opponents. In the year 1918, when the American Party
was so strong, he was the only county official who was re-elected to office. In his years of work as surveyor, he
covered practically the whole of the State of Texas and as far as we know today, no lawsuits have ever occured
over any of the surveys he made. "Judge" Vogt not only was active in the above mentioned professions, but he
was one of the first persons to help organize the First National Bank of Schulenburg in 1916. He was one of the
first to help organize the Bluff Mutual Fire Insurance Company, which is over fifty years old and still going
strong. He wrote the by-laws, rules and regulations of that group of farmers. He was the man who helped establish
all of the mail routes out of Schulenburg. There were many other projects which live on through this man, who
helped found them, who is not with us any more. For the past 34 years he has made his home in the city of
Schulenburg. One of the expressions which we have heard many times within the past few days is that: "He was
fair, impartial and just in all of his dealings." No finer tribute can be given to a man. It will not seem the same
here in Schulenburg to not see the "Squire" come down the street with his cane in his hand and his pipe in his
mouth. He will be missed by his many friends who have gathered for years on Saturday afternoon to play a few
games of dominoes. His wise council, given freely, to all those who need sound advice, will go begging. Our,
and every other community, needs more men who will live the life of Mr. Vogt. He was a wonderful father and
husband and did his all to make his family happy and contented.

He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and Charter member of the Schulenburg Lutheran Church. Funeral
services were held from the family residence on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock with interment in the Cedar
Cemetery. Rev.Hornung and Rev. Kuretsch officiated at the last sad rites. Choirs of both the Lutheran and
Methodist Churches sang the hymns. A large number of people from this and surrounding areas came to pay their
last respects. Floral bouquets were numerous and very beautiful.

Surviving to mourn his passing are: his wife Mrs. Annie Vogt; three sons: Charlie, Emil and Otto; two
grandchildren: Charlie Vogt, Jr. and John Carrol Vogt; two brothers: Fritz Vogt of La Grange and Julius Vogt of
Cedar, and two sisters, Mrs. Fritz Nollkamper and Mrs. Ernest Knigge, both of La Grange. We join with manv
other friends of the family in extending our sympathy to the bereaved. Pallbearers were E.A. Bosl, Otto Brauner,
Charles Matula, Alfred Olle, Henry Borchers
and John Schroeder.

Fritz Nollkemper

Struggling for the past month against the rapid approach of death, Fritz Nollkemper, aged 81 years, 2 months and
26 days, died at the family home in La Grange, Tuesday afternoon, January 30. Funeral services were held
Wednesday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock, Rev. R. Heise officiating and the Koenig Funeral Home in charge of the

"Uncle Fritz" -- in the greeting manner in which the writer ever addressed him - came to La Grange 20 years ago
from Swiss Alp, where he had farmed for many years, purchased the Thos. C. Gregory home and lived in that
home continuously since. Retiring from his labors on the farm, he spent the past twenty years in contentment, and
with his companion of more than 53 years, enjoyed with the pleasant and agreeable years with friends and
neighborly relatives. Unpretentious, always of a friendly disposition, his appearance upon our streets will be
sadly missed. May he sleep peacefully!

Born at Cedar, Nov. 4, 1858, the son of Hy. Nollkemper, Sr., he spent his boyhood days on the farm; in the year
1886, Nov. 10, he was united in marriage with Miss Charlotte Vogt, daughter of John and Mrs. Franciska Vogt,
and located on a farm, near Swiss Alp, where they remained until 20 years ago when they removed to La Grange.
To this union was born three daughters, all living; these are Mrs. Chas. (Elise) Rosenaur of Sealy, Mrs. Ross
(Gretchen) McMillan of Weimar, and Mrs. Earl (Lucy) Greenshield of Swiss Alp. There are four grandchildren,

George Vogt Dead

It was a distinct shock to this community when the word went out that George Vogt had died Saturday morning
from blood poisoning, following a minor operation in Dallas about four weeks previous. Specialists had been
summoned to his bedside and every thing that skilled physicians and faithful nursing could accomplish was done
without avail.

Geo. Vogt was born at Cedar post office, about fourteen miles from Schulenburg, on March 4, 1868. In 1891 he
was united in marriage to Lena Nollkemper and of this union five children were born, Olivia, Robert, Julia, Ruth,
and George, Jr., all of whom survive him, together with his faithful wife, his mother, Mrs. Francis Vogt, of La
Grange, who came to Texas in 1846, and is in her 82nd year, yet distinctly remembers the services attending the
demise of the famous Dawson company near Bluff. He is also survived by six brothers and sisters, Judge E. R.
Vogt, of this city; Fritz Vogt, of La Grange; Julius Vogt, who still lives on the old homestead at Cedar; Mrs.
Schroeder, of La Grange; Mrs. Nollkemper, of Swiss Alp; and Mrs. Knigge, of La Grange.

To the writer this is a deep personal loss, as during the few years of our friendship his unfailing good nature has
ever been a source of comfort, his sterling honesty and upright manhood an inspiration. During the eight years he
has been in business in this city his every business transaction has been stamped with the mark of fairness to all.
Now that his life work has been accomplished and the dark curtain that hides the beautiful beyond from mortal
eyes, has been softly drawn aside for his passage, the sorrowing family and friends can console themselves with
the knowledge that the God above, who supervises our incoming and our outgoing with His infinite wisdom, has
balanced his Book of Life and written across the page those words of boundless meaning "Well done, thou good
and faithful servant."


                                                             323
The impressive Masonic service was given Sunday afternoon in the presence of a large number of friends from all
part of the county. The sermon was delivered by Rev. Paul Pieponbrok, and the Herman Sohns lodge, of which
he was a member, assisted.

Thus closes a life of unfailing devotion to his family, of unselfish service and uncompromising integrity toward
his fellowman. The sphere in which he grew to manhood and accomplished his life's work has been the better for
having known him and he enters the future life without fear, secure in the knowledge that what his hand has found
to do, has been accomplished to the best of his knowledge and belief.

                     ONE MORE WAS NEEDED
                     Death Loves Ever The Shining Mark - Miss Vogt

                     Monday night the news came from Schulenburg that Miss Olivia Vogt aged twenty-six years, daughter of
                     Mrs. Geo. Vogt had been claimed by the grim reaper. Known here, where she had numerous relatives
                     and friends, as a sweetly disposed, pure good young woman, her being called hence occasioned much
                     sorrow.

                     Since the death of her father, Geo. Voght - who passed to his reward in August 1917 - and the continued
                     illness of her mother, Miss Olivia has mothered her little sisters, her kind ministrations, unselfish
                     sacrifices for the comfort of those so near and dear to her bound to her more closely the already strong
                     ties of love and friendship of relative and friend.

                     She became ill last week but the indomitable energy encouraged, prevented recognition by her of her
                     affliction until the dread influenza had fastened its hold, and pneumonia followed to complete the work
                     of destruction. True, we are told that death loves a shining mark, we see it here exemplified. None knew
                     her but to love her, none loved her but to know her as she was.

                     Our sincerest sympathy is offered to her saddened mother, her sisters and brother and other relatives. He
                     who has calmed the stormy waters, and returned a placid sea, should lighten the sorrow; may He comfort
                     them.

Death of Mrs. Vogt

Thursday night, following an illness of but a few days, Mrs. Hedwig Vogt, wife of Fritz Vogt, died at the family
home on Colorado Street. The untimely death of this good lady has caused many hearts to ache, and the
sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved husband, the two sons, one a child of two years, and other
relatives.

Mrs. Vogt, whose maiden name was Sladczyk, was the daughter of Captain Sladczyk of Bluff and was loved by
her legion of friends. She was married to Fritz Vogt, December 21, 1892. Few knew of her illness, and her death
came as a shock. Everything that mortals could do was done; and as a last resort a hospital surgeon was requested
to come, but reached her too late.

Saturday afternoon the remains were laid to their last rest place in the new cemetery, and a very large number of
relatives and friends being in attendance. The foral tributes were numerous and beautiful.

                     Thursday of last week when the Legion Buddies were carrying out their program of Armistice Day
                     celebration, Johnny - we know him better by that name - came upon the scene and was slapped on the
                     back by the buddies, all of whom were glad to greet him and bid him enjoy himself with his old
                     comrades. Little knew these Buddies, or Johnny that he was walking in the shadow of the scythe and
                     that he may wander too close.

                     Saturday, in the courthouse, second floor, at the office of John Schroeder of the Fayette County Abstract
                     Company, Johnny was stricken and immediately lost the power of his right side, arm, and leg. He was
                     taken to the home of his father, Fritz Vogt, and given every attention; Sunday morning the contemplated
                     visit to the Legion Hospital at Kerrville was abandoned, his condition would not permit. He was taken to
                     the La Grange Hospital and every care and attention given. He joined his former buddies who had
                     traveled down the lane, Sunday night.

                     Johnny Vogt was born near Cedar in the western section of Fayette county, and was the eldest son of
                     Fritz Vogt; he served during the world war and after the armistice was signed returned to La Grange
                     where he engaged in business for several years. He was, for a number of years unable to travel about as
                     was his wont, due to an affliction to his limb, but with a patience most commendable he carried on and
                     finally overcame the handicap.

                     He was united in marriage with Mrs. Mozelle Hughes in January 1936, who survives him; his father,
                     Fritz Vogt and a brother Harry, also survive. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon, with
                     interment at the new cemetery; services were held at the Koenig Funeral Home by Rev. Guy B. Duff, and
                     with Legion escort were conveyed to the cemetery. At the grave his Masonic brethren and the Legion
                     Buddies officiated.

Struck By Falling Tree

Julius Vogt of the old Cedar neighborhood is suffering from the effects of an accident that came near costing him
his life. While busily engaged Monday in felling a large tree on his farm, a cracking sound informed him that the
oak would soon begin to fall. He ceased his labors and stepped out of harm's way, but discovered, to his dismay,
that his little son would, unless hastily removed, be struck. It was while in the act of getting the little fellow away
that the crash came, the tree carrying the father crushingly to the earth.


                                                              327
Mr. Vogt was struck on the head, receiving an ugly wound which partially stunned him. His body and lower right
limb were badly bruised. Medical aid was hastily summoned, and Dr. Knolle, of this city, accompanied by Fritz
Vogt, repaired to the scene of the accident at once. The wound was dressed and the sufferer made as comfortable
as possible.

Julius is the youngest of the large family of John (now deceased) and Mrs. Francisca Vogt, old settlers and highly
respected people of the Cedar community, and the last and only remaining member at the old neighborhood. His
aged and widowed mother lives within a stone's throw of his residence.

beloved "senior citizen" came at Fayette Memorial hospital here.

He was born May 13, 1880, in the Cedar community, the son of Herman and Magarethe Vogt Schroeder, and was
married here on May 23, 1901, to Miss Pauline Melcher. He was bereft of his wife on March 7, 1953.

Mr. Schroeder was studying in Galveston in 1900 at the time of the storm. He returned to La Grange to help
organize the Fayette County Abstract Co. on October 2, 1902. Mr. Schroeder, who was in the employ of the
company at the time, left briefly in 1909 to work in the State General Land Office in Austin and for the Lee
County Abstract Co. in Giddings. He returned here as manager in 1911, and had been with the company in that
capacity continuously since that time.

The firm, which observed its 60th anniversary in November 1962, has a reputation of possessing complete sets of
maps of every survey, showing the location and size, of every tract of land in Fayette county - - something of
which few similar offices in the state can boast.

Mr. Schroeder became a trustee of the La Grange public school board upon the death of George Krengel in about
1918 and served as member, secretary and president of the board at various times until about 1936. It was during
his trusteeship, and while J. R. Peace was superintendent, that the La Grange High school, as used today, was
erected.

Mr. Schroeder was a member of the St. Paul Lutheran church in La Grange, belonged to the Masonic lodge,
LaFayette Lodge No. 34 A. F. and A. M., serving a term as master and also serving a term as district deputy grand
master; and a member of the Texas State Historical Society. He was also a member of the Chamber of
Commerce.

It was through his efforts and aid to Rev. Oscar Linstrum, a Methodist minister here several years ago, that the
city was able to enlarge the city cemetery by acquiring the property adjacent thereto upon which was located a
colored Methodist church.

Mr. Schroeder also was very instrumental in securing the land for the Masonic hall and soliciting the funds for the
erection of the building.

The deceased was also known for his philanthropy, but he never sought personal recognition for his
benevolences.

Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Frank J. (Marguerite) Willmann; and a sister, Miss Louise Schroeder, both of La
Grange.

                   Her Visit Ended
                   Infant Babe Departs on Her Journey To The Other World

                   Mrs. F. Nollkaemper returned from Weimar Saturday where for the past three weeks she had been with
                   the family of Ross McMillan, and at the bedside of the little grandchild, Evelyn Marie McMillan. It has
                   seemed that the joy the first born brings into the home was to have been short lived here. Baby Evelyn
                   Marie made her debut into this world and into the hearts of the young parents and grandparents as a New
                   Year's gift, the cup of happiness appeared to have been filled to the brim, but only for a short while.

                   On Wednesday morning of last week the visit of the infant boss of the home came to an end. The angelic
                   band hovering near simply stepped in and took the spirit and carried it up to Him who hath said: "Suffer
                   little children to come unto me for of such is the kingdom of Heaven."

                   Little Evelyn Marie's precious body was placed into a tiny couch bed and bedded to rest at the Weimar
                   cemetery where many friends and relatives gathered to sympathize with the sorrowing parents,
                   Wednesday afternoon. Rev. J. W. Arnspiger, pastor of the Baptist church officiated and consoled the
                   bereaved by his kind words. Beautiful flowers bedecked the little mound. We regret the loss and offer
                   our sympathy to the young parents and relatives.

                   The following attended the funeral ceremonies: Fritz Vogt and Miss Louise Schroeder of La Grange;
                   Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Rosenaur of Flatonia; Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Balzer, Swiss Alp.

                   Two little loving hands, two rosy cheeks and two loving eyes that will never see feel or know the sorrows
                   of this earthly world have been laid to rest forever more.
                   Little Evelyn Marie McMillan was born Jan. 1, 1922, and after just seventeen days as the only child of
                   Ross McMillan and wife, passed quietly out into that Great Unknown, and was laid to rest in the
                   Masonic Cemetery at Weimar Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 17, 1922.
                   We all loved her, yes, perhaps too well, but there was Another who loved her more, for soon that
                   precious soul returned unto the One who gave it.
                   It is hard indeed, and only those who have withstood the great ordeal of giving up their first-born can
                   really know. But we must not look upon her as lost or very far away, but bow in humble submission to
                   God who has seen fit to move this precious one to that mysterious realm to take her chamber in the silent
                   halls of death where suffering, sorrow and parting will be no more.
                   To brother and sister in their sad hour, may God in His infinite wisdom comfort them as He alone can.

George Knigge Improving

Mrs. Ernst Knigge, called to Houston last week to see her son George, seriously ill at the Baptist Sanitarium from
typhoid fever, has informed her husband, the father, that George's condition is greatly improved. For a while it
seemed as though George's life hung by a slender thread, and unceasing vigil failed to produce a change that gave
hope, but the message received Tuesday was very gratifying. We sincerely trust the improvement shown will
continue.

Knigge - Amberg

There was a pretty little home wedding last evening at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Otto L. Amberg, when their
daughter, Miss Else Marie, became the bride of Mr. George Knigge, a La Grange boy, but now of Galveston.
None but relatives of the immediate families were present, and the ceremony, performed by the Rev. Heise of the
Lutheran church, was all the more impressive for its simplicity. The Journal joins their many friends in sincere
congratulations and good wishes for their future. The newly married couple left last evening on the Katy flyer,
and will be at home in Galveston after the 25th.
