J. Lester Hodges Funeral Rites Are Held Here Friday  Funeral services for James Lester Hodges, 59, well known business man, who died Thursday afternoon, September 1st in a San Antonio hospital, were held Friday afternoon at 5:30o'clock from the Hodges Funeral Home chapel with the Rev. James B. Jordan, Methodistminister, officiating.  Burial was made in the Junction Cemetery.  Hodges, who was associated with The Hodges Co., had been in the hospital only four days but had been ill in his home several weeks.  Until recently, however, he had been at his place in the store where he had worked continuously during the past 25 years.  Except for three years as Junction postmaster from 1915 to 1918 and the seven succeeding years ranching in Edwards County, he worked altogether in the store which his father, the late J. N. Hodges established and served as co-owner and manager, known as the Schreiner-Hodges Co. but after the death of the manager, was called the Hodges Co.  A native of Bandera, Hodges was born January 31, 1890, and came to Kimble with his parents in 1907.  On March 3rd, 1911, he was married to Miss Sarah Elizabeth Corder, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Corder, here, with the late John S. Durst performing the ceremony.  The youngest of their four children, Glenn, an officer in the Air Corps, died in action on January 24, 1944.  An integral part of the business firm which has expanded in recent years to include a modern funeral home as well as the grocery and dry goods store, Hodges will be missed in the business circles of the town and among his many friends and relative.  He will also be remembered for his activities in the development of the town.  At the time the new high school building was erected, he was serving as secretary of the Junction School Board.  Survivors include the widow; one son, James Lester, Jr. of Cleveland, Texas; two daughters, Mrs. W.

KIMBLE COUNTY'S FIRST SETTLER DIES                               The Junction Eagle, July 7, 1921                                                                                      
JOHN JOY    Died July 2, 1921    Mr. John Joy departed this life at the home of his son, Dock Joy of Cedar Hill, when he had almost completed his 89th year.    A long line of automobiles passed many comfortable homes as they followed the old settler's body to the grave.  This was in marked contrast to the conditions of 1856,when he and his father with their families settled on the James River.  Then there was never a house nor a road, not a neighbor, not a church, nor school in all of what is now Kimble County.  They were our first settlers.    As an illustration of their frontier experiences it may be recalled that Mr. Joy's mother and sister were killed by Indians on Banta Creek in Gillespie County.    Mr. Joy was born in Sebastian County, Arkansas, in 1832.  In 1854 he was married to Miss Nancy Ward, who continued with him sixty years.  She died in El Paso.    There were eleven children, sixty grandchildren, and forty-five great grandchildren. Nine children survive him:  Dock Joy of Cedar Hill, Lewis of Roosevelt, Mrs. Effie Mogford of Kerr Coutny, Emery, Eli Joy and Mrs. Helen Boatwright of Alamagordo,N. M., Joe of Washington, D. C., Levi of Bremington, Washington, and Mrs. Ellen Lyles of Los Angeles, California.(Note:  Nancy Ward Joy died in 1915 and was buried in Concordia Cemetery, El Paso, Texas.  The two children preceding Mr. Joy in death were Will Joy, who died in Junction in 1894; and Amanda Joy Pearl, who died at Cedar Hill in 1902.)   (John Joy was son of Wiley & Elizabeth Frazier Joy)

Phillip Joseph Dies Following Many Months of Illness  Phillip Joseph, a successful merchant in Junction since 1910, died at his home hereWednesday, April 21, 1943 (sic), following many months of illness from heart trouble.He had known for sometime that he could not live long, but despite his intense pain, he bore his suffering courageously.  He was rational until a few minutes before his death.  During his last 24 hours he expressed his desire concerning several matters. Funeral services were held at the Schreiner-Hodges Chapel Thursday afternoon, April 22, Rabbi David Tamarkin officiating, assisted by Mr. David Kanter.  Final services were held at the McCollum Murray Chapel in San Antonio Friday afternoon at two o'clock,and interment was made in the Aguadas Achim Cemetery in San Antonio.  Active pall bearers were Omer Wright, Clay Secrest, C. A. Schraub, R. D. Kothmann,T. H. Phillips and Ed Allen.  Phillip Joseph was born in Austria-Hungary on May 20, 1888, in what was later called Czechoslovakia.  At the age of 21 he came to New York City, where he secured work in a butcher shop at three dollars a month.  At the end of the first month he came to Lockhart,Texas, where an older brother, Sam, had moved.  He worked for his brother at $12.00 a month, peddling dry goods around Houston.  In 1904, while still working for his brother, he came to Kimble County.  His first stop as a peddler in Kimble County was at the home of the late John Gardner.  By this time he was traveling in a wagon instead of on foot.  After two years, he bought the mules and wagon from his brother and started out "on his own".  His first trip was from the Del Rio to Sonora.  On this trip he became lost in one of the large ranches and had some difficulty in finding his road as all roads at that time were only trails.  Later on Mr. Joseph centered his activities around Junction.  At that time where the Joseph store now stands was a mesquite flat.  There were only two general stores, a small school, two hotels, no banks, and three saloons here.  He made his headquarters at the Hodges Hotel.  He soon received encouragement to open a store in Junction.  He liked the country, the people and the scenery.  A building 18x24 feet was leased from Dr. J. Fred Burt and he opened his business in 1910 with two employees.  His business soon out grew this building and he leased a building 30x55 feet from Frank Baker on the spot where the store now stands.  By 1925 he was forced to add to his building.  In February, 1929, he doubled the size of his building by buying the bank building adjoining his store and added a men's department.  Just 10 years later, in February, 1939, he modernized his store by adding new equipment throughout.  In 1927, he opened a store in Rocksprings which he operated several years.  He also maintained stores in Mason and Winters for brief periods, but about the time he modernized his store here he closed the other stores and centered his time and effort in serving Junction and outlying territory.  On December 21, 1910, he was married to Miss Selma Schaeffer in San Antonio.  To this union one daughter, Juliet, was born, who preceded the father in February, 1936.  He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Selma Joseph, who has worked by his side during all these years;by two brothers, Sam Joseph, Lockhart, and Gerson Joseph, Dallas, Texas; three sisters, Mrs.Hannah Franks and Mrs. Pearl Lerman, Neward, N. J., and Mrs. Helen Berman, New Braunfels,Texas.  One brother remained in Austria-Hungary and has not been heard from since Hitler over-ran the country.  Phillip Joseph has been an outstanding citizen.  In the impressive funeral services here and in San Antonio, Rabbi Tamarkin paid beautiful tribute to Phillip Joseph as a successful business man, as a patriotic citizen, as a philanthropist, and as a religious man.  He also paid a deserved tribute to Mrs. Joseph, who has cared for him tenderly during his affliction,and has been a true partner with him in the business during moe than 30 years.  Phillip Joseph's words of counsel in both business and civic matters and his financial assistance in every movement for the betterment of Junction and Kimble County will be missed.He was truly one of Kimble County's best citizens.
