The following is an obituary of David Adams, who came early to the London area, later moving to the North Llano River in Sutton County, near the Kimble County line.  He is buried in the Cedar Hill Cemetery on the North Llano River in Kimble County.  The clipping of the obituary from the Sonora newspaper has been given to Kimble County Historical Archives by an Adams descendant, Charles Q. Andrews.
DAVID ADAMS
David Adams, county tax assessor of Sutton County, died near Rock Springs, Edwards County, on Sunday, December 8, 1901, in his 64th year.    Mr. and Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Warren had been on a visit to Quince Adams who ranches 30 miles below Rock Springs on East Prong of the Nueces, in "Bull Head" country.  Mr. Adams accompanied his wife and Mrs. Warren, his sister, to Rock Springs Friday and the ladies continued their journeys to their homes on the North Llano River.   Mr. Adams hired a team and wagon to take himself and some supplies to his son's ranch.  They left Rock Springs Saturday morning with W. R. Bobbitt and a Mexican driver, with Mr. Adams reclining in the bed of the wagon as has been his custom for the past few years.  Arriving at the first water about 15 miles from Rock Springs they stopped for dinner.  The bridles were taken from the horses but they were left hitched to the wagon.  The horses taking fright ran away.  The pole was broken, and the country being exceedingly rough, Mr. Adams was thrown out of the wagon, his head striking a rock, fracturing his skull and being otherwise seriously injured.  His right side was partially paralyzed.  The team ran about 300 yards beyond where Adams was thrown out.  Mr. Adams was carried to the Shipman ranch nearby and lived from Saturday afternoon until Sunday morning.    His sons and family were notified and preparations were at once made for the burial at the grave yard on the North Llano, where interment was had Tuesday evening.  Rev. Frank Collier conducting the services.  The tragic end of "Uncle Davy" is greaty deplored by the entire country.    He was a man of quiet and unassuming habits with a generous heart and kindly nature.  Deceased was born January 10, 1838, in Lincoln County, Kentucky and married in the same county to Miss Serena Estes on February 8, 1859.  They moved to Christian County, Mo. in 1868 and lived there six years when they came to Texas.  They have lived in various parts of Texas but for the past 17 years have resided in Sutton County.  His wife survives him and on the union there were six boys and seven girls, eleven of whom are still living and all of whom were present at the burial.   He was the grandfather of 56 children, fifty of whom are still living and 23 of whom attended the funeral, together with two great grandchildren.  He was one of the pioneers of Sonora as well as of the county and was elected to the office of County Tax Assessor at the last general election.
The News sympathizes with the widow and family in their affliction.

Allen at his home early Sunday morning, Hill Country people are  forcibly reminded that the ranks of the sturdy pioneers are being thinned rapidly.  On  account of advancing years, John A. Allen was forced to retire from active ranching three years ago when he moved to Junction where he and Mrs. Allen built a home to spend their last few years.  He has not been well for several months but was able to get up Sunday morning.  He had not been up long until he fell in the floor and was soon dead.  His heart had been giving him trouble for some time.    Funeral services were held at the cemetery Monday afternoon with Rev. George B. McCrary, pastor of the Methodist Church officiating, assisted by Rev. James J. Kellam, pastor of the Baptist Church.  Interment was in the Junction cemetery with the Smith Funeral Home of Kerrville in charge.    The following were active pall bearers:   Ray Holland, Ramsey Randolph, Joe Bissett, S.

Funeral Services Are Held In Kerrville With Dr. Dickey In Charge  (name of paper not given)
In the homegoing of Mrs. W. W. Allen in San Antonio Sunday, October 24, Kimble county has lost one of her best loved ranch women.  Mrs. Allen has not had good health for many months and a short time ago she came in from the ranch and was living at the Fritz Hotel when she became critically ill with asthma.  She was carried to a San Antonio hospital, but grew worse.  She developed pneumonia from which she died on Sunday.  Funeral services were held in Kerrville Monday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock with Dr. W. P. Dickey in charge.  He was assisted by his brother, Dr. Brooks I. Dickey, Dr. T. S. Van Dyke and Rev. Thomas Bradley. The body was laid to rest by the side of her husband, who preceded her 24 years ago.  The floral offering was one of the most beautiful ever seen in Kerrville.  Mrs. W. W. Allen was born at Concrete, Texas, near Yoakum in Lavaca county.  She spent her girlhood days in Cuero, Old Sweet Home and Concrete.  She attended Baylor College at Belton.  She was married to W. W. Allen at Old Sweet Home, with her sister Mrs. Sol West in charge of the social event.  In those days the greatest social events were the well planned home weddings.  To this union three children, Mrs. John Phillips, Raymond Allen and Ed Allen, were born, all of whom were present with her during her last days.  She is also survived by three sisters, Mrs. Sol West, Mrs. Betty Dewees and Mrs. Fred Patton; four grand children and many other relatives.   Soon after her marriage, she and her husband moved to a ranch in Waller  county where they lived about ten years.  Mr. Allen then bought the Allen ranch here and they moved to Kerrville where the children attended school.  After the death of Mr. Allen she moved on the ranch where she has made her home since.    Early in life Mrs. Allen united with the Presbyterian Church and remained a faithful, devoted and active member until her death.  She was a member  of the order of the Eastern Star with her membership in the Junction chapter.    She always took an active interest in the social life of the community and was famed through Kimble and Kerr counties as a gracious hostess.  She was especially interested in a wholesome social life for the young people  and was often hostess for social events for young people   Before ill health interfered with her activities, she was always
rendering deeds of kindness to the unfortunate.   In her death the community will lose a good citizen; the church a devoted member, and the family, a loving mother and grandmother.  She is gone but her influence will continue to live in the lives of those with whom she came in contact.

Death Claims Mrs. G. C. Amberson On June First  Many of the older citizens of London were made sad on June 1, when the news of the  death of Mrs. G. C. Amberson of San Antonio reached relatives and friends.  Mrs.  Amberson, better known in Kimble county as Aunt Lizzie Amberson, was the widow of the late Jim Amberson, Sr.  She lived for many years on the farm where she and her husband reared their family of six children--four sons and two daughters.  The husband met a sudden death many years ago in a thunder storm.
After Mr. Amberson's death the family moved to San Antonio in about 1912, where Mrs. Amberson lived until her death. She was born in Lavaca county 73 years ago, but moved to Kimble county with her grand-father, George Walton and Uncle Lou Walton, when a small child, and made her home with them until her marriage with G. C. Amberson.   When a young woman she united with the Church of Christ and lived an exemplary Christian life.  She was also a member of the Woodmen Circle and of the Order of the Eastern Star.
Although she made her home in San Antonio, she never forgot her London friends and visited them at least once a year as long as she was able to make the trip.  The large crowd present at the funeral services on June 2, and the beautiful floral offering attested the love and esteem in which she was held by London friends.  Interment was  made in the Little Saline Cemetery by the side of her husband.   Mrs. Amberson was a good woman and has been called from this strife torn world to a place of peace and rest at His own right hand.  Friends extend to the children and other relatives heartfelt sympathy in this sad bereavement, and say to them, look higher and cast your burden at His feet.

Mrs. W. W. Buck Is Laid To Rest On December 21st   Funeral services for Mrs. Corrie Stroud Buck were held Saturday afternoon, December 21st,  at three o'clock at the Schreiner-Hodges Funeral Home with Rev. Geo. B. McCrary, pastor of the Junction Methodist Church officiating.  Interment was made in the Junction Cemetery.  Special hymns for the service were impressively rendered by Mrs. Weaver H. Baker, Miss Austin Durst, Kittrell Durst and Rev. Geo. McCrary.  Active pallbearers for the service were Jack Turner, E. O. Lowgren, Lewis Jetton, Fred Coleman, Barney Williams, Vann Martin, B. B. Ragland and Earl D. Tracy.  Mrs. Corrie Stroud Buck was born December 23, 1859, and she died Friday noon, December 20, after an illness of ten days.  Mrs. Buck was born in Limstone county, a member of a pioneer plantation family, her parents coming to Texas from Georgia and Carolina.  Typical of the early day families, she was one of eleven children.  She spent her early childhood days in Limstone county and received her education from Trinity University at Tehuacana, Texas, prior to the time it was re-established at Waxahachie.  Deceased was married to W. W. Buck, a jeweler, in Hillsboro, Hill County, in 1881, where they
resided until moving to Kimble county.  To this happy union, five children were born.  The family moved to Kimble county in the fall of 1911 to enter the ranch business and settled on
the site of the present home place where Mrs. Buck lived until death.    Mrs. Buck joined the Methodist Church early in life and maintained a faithful membership, although her increasing years prevented her personal participation in the active work of the church.  She was held in high esteem by her many friends and loved and appreciated by all who knew her.  Her simple life, easy manner and soft spoken words were exemplary of the life she fulfilled.  Her going leaves empty another of the prime places of citizenship established by the pioneers
of an earlier day in Kimble county.    Mrs. Corrie Buck was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Mabel Lee, one son, Stroud Ethan, and her husband, the late W. W. Buck.  Children surviving her are Mrs. R. B. Curry of San Angelo, Mrs. R. E. Homann of Junction, and Walter Buck of Junction.  Other survivors include five grand-children:  Reginald B. Curry of Stanford, Conn.; George W. Curry of San Angelo; Nolan Curry of  San Angelo; Miss Martha Curry of Houston and James Carrol Cherry, Jr. of Junction.  Mrs. Willie
Winston of Groesbeck, Texas a sister of Mrs. Buck, is the only surviving member of the Stroud family.  Two sister-in-laws, Mrs. J. R. Stroud of Grosbeck and Mrs. Alice Stroud of Alpine, also survive.

Weaver Baker Rites Are Held Here Wednesday   Funeral services for Weaver H. Baker, Chairman of the State Board of Control, who was killed Sunday morning in a car crash near Austin, were held at the Junction Baptist Church Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock, with Dr. W. R. White, pastor of the First Batist Church of Austin, officiating. Dr. White was assisted by Dr. James J. Kellam of Dallas, and Chaplain Neel Greer of Camp Fannin, Tyler, both former pastors of the local church.  Four hundred people filled the church for the services, and as many more stood outside in a drizzling rain, to pay last respects to Judge Baker.  The Junction Baptist Church, of which Mr. Baker had been a member for more than 25 years, was decorated with one of the largest floral offerings ever seen in this Hill Country town.  Following the services at the church, the funeral cortege made its way, through showers of  rain, to the Junction Cemetery where the remains were interred.  The Masonic Lodge and American Legion had charge of the graveside services.   Active pallbearers were Gov. Coke Stevenson, Gully Cowsert, Emil A. Loeffler, Judge J. B. Randolph, George Vierling, C. W. McCarroll, Alton Mason and J. S. Farmer   Baker is survived by his widow and two daughters, Marilyn, 19, a student at Sul Ross State Teacher's College at Alpine, and Beverly, 23, of Austin, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Baker of Junction, a brother, Eli, and a sister, Mrs. H. I. Taylor, both of Junction.  He was born April 10, 1894, on a farm near Jacksboro and moved to Kimble County with his parents in 1901.  He was educated in the public schools of Kimble County and at the University of Texas, and taught school for two years, prior to World War I.  Baker was the first man to volunteer for service from Kimble County and served with both the 36th and 90th Divisions.  During World War II he served as judge advocate for the Texas National Guard.  Baker was licensed to practice law on June 12, 1919, and just a week later was appointed Kimble County attorney.  He was elected to this post without opposition in 1920, re-elected for a second term without opposition and retired to enter the law firm of Stevenson and Knetsch.  He engaged in the general practice until January 1931, when he was elected District Attorney of the 112 Judicial District.  Baker was re-elected for five terms without opposition.  In 1942, Stevenson named him a member of the Board of Control, the state's business agency which not only governs the state's system of eleemosynary institutions but is the budget-making agency, and he was named chairman.  He concentrated much of his efforts on improving the institutions for wards of the state.  He achieved one ambition about a year ago--the final removal of all the insane from county jails to institutions better equipped to care for them.  Baker was a Baptist and a member of the Kimble Bar Association, and was chairman of the trustees of the state teacher's retirement system.  He was active in the County and Commissioners Association during his tenure as county official.  He unsuccessfully sought nomination to the Court of Criminal Appeals in the July Democratic primary.  Note from Frederica:  Weaver H. Baker died 22 Sept. 1946

BEAR CREEK PIONEER DIES AT SAN ANTONIO    W. A. Bannowsky, a pioneer of the Hill Country and a citizen of Kimble County since 1882, died in a San Antonio hospital Sunday, August 4, following several months illness.  He had been under treatment in San Antonio for two weeks.  Funeral services were held  Monday afternoon at the Church of Christ with Elder Walter W. Leamons, officiating, assisted by Rev. Glen D. Welch, pastor of the Junction Baptist Church.  Interment was made in the Junction Cemetery.  The following were active pallbearers:  Nolan Gilliam, George Stengel, Harold Dutton, Allen Bishop, Lee Murchison and R. H. Woody.    William A. Bannowsky is survived by his widow, five sons--A. J. of Kansas City, Mo. Clarence J. of Oakland, California; Alfred, Chester and Guss of Junciton; and one daughter, Mrs. Don Reed of Lake Charles, La.; and a sister, Mrs. C. F. Burt of Junction.  Ten grand-children and six great grandchildren also survive.  Mr. Bannowsky, a successful Kimble County ranchman and a typical pioneer Texan, was born Nov. 10, 1858, in a hewed cedar log cabin near Oatmeal, on Cow Creek, in Burnet County where he lived until moving to Menard County with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frederick L. Bannowsky in May 1882.  After his marriage to Miss Emily Weaver on March 15, 1887, he lived in Kimble, Menard, Schleicher, Runnels and Concho Counties.  In 1917 he traded for the Fred Hall Ranch in Kimble, known as the Viejo Ranch.  He received 2,000 acres of divideland for which he paid $6 per acre, and also 500 acres of valley land lying along East Bear Creek, which includes 25 acres, watered by a gravity irrigation system.  He enlarged his holdings until he owned 6,000 acres of ranch land. He possessed the largest apple orchard in this section of the state and grew other fruit, pecans, and vegetables, but his chief interests were his flocks of sheep, goats, cattle and horses.  His most treasuered possession was his saddle pony which he rode often.  He started a cedar eradication program long before the government program began and was one of the first to co-operate with the government, often using the cedar axe himself, and as a result most of his land is cleared.  He had been riding horseback since he wa four years old.  He and his sister, Charlotte, now Mrs. C. F. Burt of Junction, learned to ride bareback on an old Spanish mare their father had purchased and eight years later lost in the last Indian raid in Burnet County. When Mr. Bannowsky was 18 years old, his father and an older brother paid $2,000 for the horse brand "51".  In two months time, with hired help, he penned and sold enough at $10 a head to repay the brand purchase price.  The first lot he sold numbered 178 and went to Kansas for farm and ranch work.  He raised a herd of his own horses in the early days, beginning with a young mare
given him by a neighbor for penning a group of wild horses.  At the time the land along the Kimble-Menard County  (Coninued on page eight)   Rest of article missing.

MRS. CHARLOTTE BURT FUNERAL HELD JUNE 11     Funeral services for Mrs. Charlotte Frederica Burt, 91, who died suddenly in her home here Tuesday morning about 5:30 o'clock, were held Wednesday afternoon at five o'clock from the Junction Presbyterian Church with the Rev. Thomas D. Murphy, minister, officiating assisted by Walter W. Lemmons, College Street Church of Christ minister.  The Junction Chapter O.E.S. conducted the graveside rites.  The Hodges Funeral Home had charge of arrangements.  Burial was made in the Junction cemetery.  Mrs. Burt, daughter of a refugee family who fled Germany in 1849 during the democratic uprising in which her father, F. L. Bannowsky, served in the revolutionary army, was born in Burnet County, Texas, on June 4, 1856.  On October 26, 1876, she was married to a physician, Dr. James Warren Burt, whom she first met when he was called to treat injuries she sustained when trampled by a horse.  In 1883 they and their two young sons moved to Kimble County and established the home which served as a medical center, and often as a hospital, until the Doctor's death in 1913.  For years she and her husband, both registered pharmacists, owned and operated the old "Rock Drug Store", which was prominent in early county history.  The rock building on the main street of Junction which is now the Masonic Hall and her rambling pioneer style home are among the few
remaining land marks of the town.   During the 10 years or so following her husband's death the professional atmosphere of her home was maintained by her son, Dr. J. Fred Burt, now a retired physician, who kept an office in town both then and after he married and established a home of his own.  Mentally alert in spite of confinement to a wheel chair and crutches, she kept informed of current affairs through visits from friends and by reading.  Many went to her for historical facts and general advice and her name appears on a large number of "old date" birth certificates recorded during the wartime rush.   Surviviors include one son, Dr. J. Fred Burt, two daughters-in-law, Mrs. J. Fred Burt and Mrs. Ernest M. Burt, five grandchildren: Mrs. Sidney Levinson of Los Angeles, California, Mrs. J. D. Sheppard of San Antonio; Mrs. Damon Maddux and Misses Imogene and Jo Fred Burt; and 6 great grandchildren.  Pall bearers were the following nephews:  Alfred Bannowsky, Guss Banowsky, Chester Banowsky, Matt Burt, Fane L. Burt and Don Reed.
Note from Frederica:  Died June 10, 1947

"Kimble County Citizen" Newspaper, January 31, 1913  Used with permission
Obituary -   With sadness we chronicle the death of Dr. J. W. Burt.  This honored citizen of Kimble County has gone from our midst.  He was born in Washington County, Arkansas, in July, 1851.  Came to Kimble County, May, 1882, and has been engaged in the practice of Medicine ever since.  His health has been on the decline for some months, and a short time ago he went to Marlin, Texas, for medical aid, where he passed away January 21, 1918 (sic).  His remains were brought to his hoem in Junction, and on the 24th interrment was made in the Junction cemetery.  A Brief religious service was held at the home of the deceased, conducted by Elder John S. Durat, when the Masonic fraternity, of which Dr. Burt was an
honored member, took charge, and after the ante-burial service, they, together with the W.O.W. and Eastern Star members, all the school children, and a host of friends, thronged
to the cemetery where the remains were deposited in the tomb to await the resurrection of the dead.  The impressive burial service of the Masonic lodge was given the deceased,
while those who loved him joined with the bereaved family in sorrow over his departure.  Dr. Burt will be long remembered as a friend to the sick and the bereaved of our section,
where he has given his life to the suffereing and afflicted.  Many tears flowed freely while  (end of clipping)
Note from Frederica:  He was the son of Dr. John Smith Burt and Helen E. McElroy.  Death date was 1-21-1913.

The Passing of Dr. Burt
  The passing of Dr. Burt is much more to the people of Kimble than the passing of any private citizen.    Dr. Burt is associated in the minds of everyone in the county as one of the most
prominent original settlers of this country.  The young people looked upon him as much a part of Kimble as the Llano River is a part.  To send for him in sickness was instinctive, to be in Junction at any social event without seeing the good old Doctor was unthinkable.    ... the passing of the Doctor is much more, he was a land mark, or rather a history mark of this country.  He belongs to our youth, our glorious youth, the time when we came into the new, unknown frontier country, to make homes for ourselves and our children.He was with us in the time of the open range, when our stock ranged from Rio Grande to Red River, of the trail herd, the round-up and chuck wagon, the open range, the open door, as wide open as the range, and the welcoming hand to every stranger.  He was with us in the pastures, the time of the land rushes, the dry, lean years and late springs.  With us he has always been the same cheerful friend taking the bright view, helping us over the rough places when times were bad and a pleasant companion when times were good.  We referred historical events to him, and deferred to his knowledge.  And now he is gone, and going has taken some part of us with him.  For long we have tried to convince ouselves that we are as good as we ever were, that we have the same energy and ... as in the early days but this is not so, we are compelled to admit that we are "has beens", the times have changed and we can change with them.  We live in the past, we look back to that time, the time of the free and easy life on the open range.  We love to remember that time and talk of it, of the big floods and late frosts, of cattle driving and stampedes, the time when we did great things, and made a country.   New faces, new people, new ways; we are passing awy; our chapter of history is written.
The old Doctor has gone.   Old Settler

BURT  John Warren Burt died near noon Dec. 1st 1921.  He was then but seventeen days more than eighteen years of age.  He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Burt, both natives of Kimble county, the grandson of the late Doctor Burt of Junction, and his maternal grandfather is Mr. J. A. Miller an old settler now living in the Gentry community.  So he leaves many relatives as well as numberous friends to mourn his loss.  When a child Warren was several times attacked by disease which seemed to threaten his life.  However, as he got into his teens he seemed stronger, grew rapidly and quickly developed into a comely and winsome young man.  Near two years ago he was attacked by a trouble which eventually proved to be osteo-sarcoma.  Heroic measures were resorted  to and for a time he seemed well again and his many friends were happy to see him taking his place in our community life.  Then, early in the autumn he began to fail.  Very soon itwas evident that he was losing the battle and after a few smiling suffering weeks he passed away from the presence of many who loved him much.  Many good things could be said of this fine Christian boy.  He was intelligent and observing
