IN MEMORY OF MACE WILLIAMS.

The charactor of this sketch was born in Madison County, Arkansas, about the year 1833. No one knows his exact age but he was near 76 years of age.

He came to Texas when a mere boy and settled in Williamson County, near Georgetown, and remained there until the Civil War broke out. He then worked in the tan yard and on the hay field preparing leather and hay for the Confederate army.

After the war he wandered about among strangers until about fifteen years ago he came to Burnet county and settled with his sister, Mrs. Mitcheltree, at whose home he died, July 13, 1908.

He obeyed the Gospel in 1894 under the preaching of R.T. Howell. His body was laid to rest in the Odd Fellows' Cemetery, July 14, at 4 o'clock Elder W.A. Shultz conducting the funeral service.

In the death of Uncle Mace we realize that another one of Texas old landmarks is gone, and when we look about us we can only see a few that remain to tell us of the early days of our Lone Star State.

To the bereaved relatives we can only say that God does all things well; and in the near future we will be permitted to meet our loved ones in that home where parting comes no more and where sickness and pain are unknown.

Friend"
