|DORBANDT, Mrs. J. D. - Nov
Burnet Bulletin, 22 Nov 1900 (reprinted from the Lampasas Leader)
The people of Lampasas were shocked last Saturday evening to learn
that Mrs. J. D. Dorbandt has died. She had been seriously ill
for several days, but all hoped that she would recover.
Her maiden name was Miss Cora Allen Bodenhamer, and she was
well known as Allie, which was the name by which she was most
frequently called. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.
F. Bodenhamer, and was born Dec. 3, 1874. In August 1893 she was
married to Dr. J. D. Dorbandt, and they lived happily together
until the day of her death.
Three children were born to them, two little boys and an infant
girl, now only a few days old. Mr. Bodenhamer, in speaking of her
said he had never seen a more obedient child, that she never gave him
trouble, and was always ready to respond to any call he made upon
her. She professed religion when about sixteen years of age and
joined the Baptist church, and was a faithful and acceptable member
at the time of her death.
She leaves a disconsolate husband, the children above mentioned,
besides her father and mother, one sister and two brothers, and
numerous relatives, and friends without number to mourn her loss, but
they know that she has gone to the home of the pure and good and they
do not sorrow without hope of meeting her again.
