Uncle Andy Kinser, a pioneer citizen of Burnet County and an admirable citizen, died at his home in Pleasant Valley this morning at 6 o'clock. The burial will take place at the Roper cemetery in Pleasant Valley this afternoon at 4 o'clock. Rev. Cornelius of the Baptist Church at this place will conduct the service.

Andrew J. Kinser was born in Greene County, Tenn., Nov. 24, 1833. At the beginning of the Confederate war 1862 he enlisted in Co. H, under Capt. Macklin and served through the war under that command until the surrender of 5th Tennessee. After the close of the war he moved to Georgia and spent 2 years, and then came to Texas. He lived in Williamson County two years and then moved to Pleasant Valley, where he has since resided.

For many years Mr. Kinser ran a gin in Pleasant Valley and was always regarded as an honorable, high minded business man by all with whom he came in contact and did business for. He has hundreds of staunch friends throughout this section of the state who will regret to learn of his death.

Mr. Kinser was married to Miss Mary Ann Henderson in 1853 and is survived by this good woman, who was at his bedside at the last moment. Mr. Kinser was the father of eleven children, nine of which are still living. They are: Newt, George, Price, John, Dan, Mrs. A. L. Askew, Mrs. Geo. Whitman, Mrs. Will Heinatz, and Mrs. Minnie Krohn.

Uncle Andy was not a member of the church, but expressed hope of a reward in the world beyond. He had long since made peace with God, and said he was prepared to go. He was a good citizen, a noble father, and a devoted husband. Peace to his ashes.

The Messenger joins in extending condolence to the grief-stricken wife and children, and would admonish them to look to him who doeth all things well, for comfort in this their darkest hour.
