Mr. B. came to our county during the .....1876, and held the
......sheriff. Mr. B. was an efficient officer, breasting the
winter's storms and summer's heat in the discharge of his official
duties, ever faithful, ever zealous in the cause of his country's
good. He has left a name among his mourning friends and relatives
which will forever remain a monument in the hearts of the people he
served so faithfully, an example of kindness, patience and endurance.
Cut down in the beginning of a promising manhood by the ravages of
consumption, he has gone. By his death, his family has lost an
affectionate son and brother, his associates, a true and faithful
friend, his country a patriot in the discharge of trying duties from
which he never shrank.
John, it is indeed hard, oh so hard to believe, thou art gone from
us, to that "undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler
A Friend, Llano, Sept. 4, 1878
