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.
