MR. JORDAN EVERETT DEAD

 

Mr. Jordan Everett died early Monday morning at his home in the Sage community. He received a fall several weeks ago, which probably hastened the end. The body was interred Monday afternoon in the Bethel Cemetery, with Masonic honors.

Mr. Everett was born in North Carolina 90 years ago last June. In early life he came to Texas and settled in Colorado County. Forty years ago, he moved to Burnet County and has been a resident of the Sage section since that time. He served the Confederacy throughout the Civil War, and made a splendid soldier. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge 67 years and the Baptist Church 73 years. He was a splendid citizen, whose word was absolutely accepted by all who knew him. Wherever known, he was held in high esteem and had the confidence of every acquaintance.

Mr. Everett is survived by eleven children, as follows: Mrs. Emma Kenan of Lake Victor; Mrs. Henrietta Goss of the Sunny Lane Community; J.W. Everett of Sage; Jordan Everett of Lampasas; Henry Everett, who resides a few miles north of Burnet; Leonard Everett of Lampasas; Owen Everett of Van Zandt County; Cecil Everett of Sage; Mrs. Mamie Smith of Houston; Mrs. Lizzie Farquhar of Pasche, Texas; and Mrs. Annie Hays of Marble Falls. All of them are splendid citizens of the communities in which they reside. One son, Tom, died a few years ago.

The Bulletin joins other friends in extending sympathy to the bereaved sons and daughters.
