George Brinson Lundy & 2nd wife, Sallie Thompson

George Brinson Lundy was born August 3, 1844 in Randolph Co., GA.  After living a short time in the States of Florida and Mississippi, he moved with his father's family to Texas in 1857 and settled near Moscow, in Polk County.  On May 5th, 1862, he enlisted in the Confederate Army and became a member of Hood's famous brigade and served during the entire period of the war, except when being treated for a wound in the leg that almost proved fatal.  He was with General Lee at Appomattox and witnessed the surrender of his leader.   He died December 27, 1915.  He is buried in the Glenwood Cemetery, Crockett, Houston Co., TX.  His headstone reads "Hood's Brigade CSA, Mason".  He is buried next to his second wife, Sallie Morris Worthington.  She was born August 9, 1852 and died September 13, 1941.


He was an elder in the First Presbyterian Church of Crockett (also known as the Tenney Memorial Church), where he served until his death.


He was married in 1867 to Mary Worthington.  They had the following children:

     1. Ralph G. Lundy

     2. Ione Lundy

     3. William Q. Lundy


After the death of his first wife, he married Mrs. Sallie M. Daniel, daughter of Judge Samuel M. Thompson.  She was the sister of Mrs. Dolly Worthington, wife of William Branch Worthington, who was a brother of George's first wife. 


George Lundy and Mrs. Sallie Daniels married January 16, 1887 at Neville's Prairie  but about 1895 George Lundy moved his family into the city of Crockett.  After moving into Crockett George worked for a grain company in Galveston, TX.  About a year later he and Thomas "Tom" Thompson, his brother-in-law, opened the mercantile firm of Lundy and Thompson in Crockett.  George Lundy worked there until his death Dec. 27, 1915.


No children were born to his second marriage but the 1900 census lists Sallie D. Hardin as adopted daughter.
