Death Claims Mrs. Kate Pickett October 17th                    Deceased Lacked Only Two Days Being Eighty-Six Years Of Age  Mrs. Kate E. Pickett, daughter of the late Rev. and Mrs. D. R. Morrill, died at her home here Tuesday afternoon following a series of paralytic strokes during the past weeks.  For two weeks she had been unable to leave her bed and for several days could not talk.  All her children except Carroll Pickett of Los Angeles, California, have visited her the past two weeks.  Carroll was here during the past Christmas holidays.  She lacked only two days being 86 years old at the time of her death.  The body was prepared for burial by the Schreiner-Hodges Company and interment was made in the Junction Cemetery, Wednesday afternoon at four o'clock, the Rev. James J.Kellam, pastor of the Junction Baptist Church, conducted the funeral services.  The following were pallbearers:  E. O. Lowgren, Jim Carpenter, B. D. Williams, J. C. Graham, W. H. Baker, L. R. Hodges, C. A. Schraub, and J. L. Massie.  Mrs. Kate E. Pickett was born in Huntsville, Texas, October 19, 1853, the daughter of a pioneer Baptist minsiter.  She lived in various sections of East and Central Texas,coming to Kimble county in 1914.  She was a piano teacher in Baylor University before her marriage to R. J. Pickett in Waco on June 28, 1874.  The ceremony was performed by Dr. R. C. Burleson, president of Baylor University for nearly fifty years.  To this union were born 10 children.  Three sons and a daughter preceded her.  The husband died March 17, 1925.  Surviving children are Mrs. Lillie Hickerson, Junction; Mrs. Cleve Stephen, Junction; Mrs. T. C. Dodson, Dallas; Mrs. R. G. Isbell, Rockwall; Lee H. Pickett, Boulder City, Nevada; and Carroll Pickett, Los Angeles, California.  Four sisters, Mrs. Emma Johnson,Waco; Mrs. E. E. Fitzhugh, Waco; Mrs. Mollie Johnson, Gordon; Mrs. Laura Spears, Paris,and one brother, J. P. Morrill, Cooper, also survive.  In addition to the above she is survived by 13 grandchildren and seven great grand-children.  When only 10 years old she was converted and united with the Baptist Church, of which she was a faithful and devoted member for 76 years.  She was truly a "Mother in Isreal".  Mrs. Pickett was an every day Christian.  The beautifying influence of a pure religion were spread over a life and character as spotless and charming as was ever possessed by any of the noble women who have lived and died during the ages that are gone.  It is difficult to pay a fitting tribute to the memory of a woman as noble--one whose every-day life was embellished by the charming and lovable attributes of womanhood.  Her life was gentle, but like still waters, was deep.  Her retiring nature led her to hide her best qualities from public gaze, but they were revealed to those who enjoyed her acquaintance.  In her home, in her community and in her church, she was recognized as a strong and lovable Christian character.  She is gone but her noble influence will continue to live in the lives of those with whom she lived these more than four score years.
Note from Frederica:  Mrs. Pickett died 17 october 1939.

Mrs. N. C. Patterson Dies in Hospital Monday, Jan. 14  Mrs. Elizabeth Kountz Patterson, wife of the late N. C. Patterson, died Monday January 14, in a San Antonio hospital following a long illness.  Funeral services were held in the Junciton Baptist Church Wednesday afternoon, the Rev. Vernon Shaw, pastor of the Kerrville Baptist Church, officiating.  Interment was made in the Junctin cemetery by the side of her husband who died February 18, 1944.  The following were active pallbearers:  L. R. Hodges, E. V. Stewart, Omer Wright, A. W. Browning, Ramsey Randolph, and K. G. Durst.  Mrs. Patterson was born in Virginia on July 4, 1857, but moved with her family to Kansas when a small child.  Later the Kountz family moved to Kimble county, before it was organized and the savage Indians visited the county frequently. A brother, Isaac, was killed by the Comanche Indians on Christmas, 1876.  She was married to N. C. Patterson December 25, 1878, and to this union were born nine children--eight sons and one daughter.  Three sons, Edgar, Lynn, and Olney,preceded her in death.  The surviving children are Frank, Floyd, Harry and Earl of Junction, Cummings of Chicago, and Mrs. John Harrison of Midland.  She is also survived by 11 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren and many other relataives.  During pioneer days, Mrs. Patterson suffered many frontier hardships.  The depredations of Indians were a constant menace to the early settlers.  There were no roads, no railroads, and none of the modern conveniences that her posterity enjoys. She bore all these hardships with courage and helped to pave the way for the comforts the people now enjoy.  Mrs. Patterson became a christian early in life and was a faithful member of the Baptist church as long as she was able to attend services.  In her home going the community has lost one of its best loved citizens.  She was always kind, gentle and loving.  Everybody who knew her loved her.

T. B. Phillips"Thy Day has come, not gone, Thy Sun has risen, not set, Thy life is now beyond  The touch of pain or death; Not ended, but begun."  At 9:00 a.m. Aug. 15th the summons came for our beloved pioneer citizen T. B. Phillips.In the presence of his loved ones, his passing was so quiet and peaceful a miracle seemedto happen exchanging for him, the weariness and pain he had borne so long, for Eternal rest and joy in the Father's house of many mansions.  Truly for T. B. Phillips his day hadjust begun!  Our pioneer citizen was born on December 26th, 1875, at Dripping Springs, Travis County,Texas.  In 1892, a boy of 17 years came riding into "Jumction City" Texas (as our town was then known) driving 50 cows and 5 saddle horses and settled in Sutton Co. near the old Gardner ranch.  This marked the beginning of the successful career of T. B. Phillips, ranchman in both Kimble and Edwards counties.  At the age of 24 he was married to Miss Jessie Gardner, his devoted wife who survives him, his family at the time of his death including four children, eight grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.  In 1902 T. B. Phillips built the first telephone system in Junction and this caused much satisfaction, in horse and buggy days, for the citizens of Kimble County to be in easy communication with friends and neighbours.  This telephone service he operated for 17 yearsliving with his family on Main Street.  Many and varied were his activites in those years.  T. B. Phillips was vitally interested in civic affairs, twice serving as mayor of Junction,and it during his administration the first Fire Station and big Fire truck were made possible.  His energies were also directed toward building the Methodist Church, and the JuncitonNational Bank; the upbuilding of the City always on his mind.  In 1920 having large intersts in Edwards County T. B. Phillips removed from Junction for eight years, returning in 1928 for the remainder of his life.  But his beautiful ranch atSpring Creek, Barksdale, fulfilled all his early cowboy dreams for in spite of other activities he was primarily a ranchman.  Many times he visited Spring Creek ranch, and it was the sceneof eight family reunions.  These gatherings were taking place in July 1939, in which three states were represented by fifty-five members of the T. B. Phillips family.  The name T. B. Phillips has always stood for uprightness, altruism and integrity, and a kindly generosity characterized his dealings with his fellow man.  His creed was to follow the Golden Rule, and his personal magnetism won for him not acquaintances, but friends to mourn his loss.  The last two lines of a Texan cowboy song, much in vogue a half a century ago, and sungover many a camp fire, seem to be a fitting refrain for the closing paragraph.  For T. B.Phillips experienced the presence of the living God as he walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and would testify in the words of the old song-  "The same hand that led me through scenes dark and drear Has kindly assisted me Home."                                                        --A FRIEND

Kimble County's Oldest Citizen Passes Away  On June 2nd, Mrs. C. Pearl died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. M. Burt, of London. She was born June 23rd, 1817.  Had she lived 21 days more she would have seen her 99th birthday.  She was married at the age of 18 years and settled in this western country in an early day when neighbors and friends were very scarce and hardships and privations were many; but out of it all, the Lord delivered her and she lived to see this country grow froma vast wilderness to a prosperous stock and farming community filled with peaceful and prosperous people.  With these conditions surrounding her, she raised to manhood and womanhood 6 boys and 7 girls, and those yet living are counted among our worthy and substantial citizens.  At the early age of 15 she obeyed the Gospel and ever afterwards her life was characterized by the Christian hope of an earnest and devoted Christian life.  This hope and character remained with her until the end came.  About three months ago the writer had the privilege of meeting her for the first time.  In our conversation she assured me, that with all the hardships and disappointments she had passed through her faith had never been shaken.  On this occasion she referred to Thess. 4:15-17, and expressed a desire to live until Christ came, as then she would be caught up with the living faithful and ever remain with her Redeemer.  Funeral services were held at the Christian Church June 3rd at 3 o'clock, conducted by the writer.  Possibly the largest crowd that ever assembled in London was in attendence and aprocession 1-2 mile long followed her remains to the Little Saline cemetery, where they were placed in mother earth to await the sounding of the last trumpet.  Those dear to her by the ties of nature, I would say:  Put away such grief as her clean lifemakes unnecessary and live so as to meet her again, for there will be a better day.  Truly amother in Israel is gone, but she has left a worthy heritage for you in a well spent lifewhich no one can gainsay.                           H.
