  • Other Names*: David Heather, Carl Heather.9
  • Scrapbook*: Dr. Heather Wins Public Health Award
    A former Navarro Countian, Dr. Carl D. Heather of Austin, the son of Mrs. Carl (Fay) Heather, Sr. of Rice, was recently designated the principal recipient of the annual $500 Bryant Memorial Award for outstanding contributions to public health.
    Dr. Heather and his three teammates were named winners at the awards dinner of the Texas Public Health Association held last Friday in Dallas. He is in the research department of the State Department of health. His teammates are Dr. Reuben D. Wendt, Houston, Joseph Murphy, Jr., and Spyros P. Pappas.
    According to a news story his mother received about the award, the team was cited for development of a transport medium for the gonococcus, which now makes it possible for physicians in remote areas to obtain an accurate diagnosis of gonorrhea in their patients.11
  • Note*: He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and graduated from the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas. Most of his career was as a veterinarian with the state health department in Austin. After retirement he operated a veterinary clinic in Austin for a few years.

William Riley Loop1

M, ID# 123, b. 12 October 1862, d. 23 February 1890
  • Other Names*: Riley Loop.20
  • Note*: He did not have children and was known as Riley. Records of his death are inconsistent. Kellie Loop recorded 22 Feb 1889 as his death date. The Dallas Morning News announced his death twice: First came this item in the 25 Feb 1890 edition: "CHATFIELD, Tex., Feb. 24.—Riley Loop, soon [sic] of W. W. Loop, died yesterday." A week later this item appeared on 3 Mar 1890: "CHATFIELD, Tex., March 2—Mr. Riley Loop, one of the young men of this city, died yesterday." It would seem most likely that 23 Feb 1890 was his death date.23,24

       "ALLEGED THAT GASOLINE EXPLODED WHILE NEGROES WERE STEALING FLUID
       "Four negroes, Rosa Dell Holley, C. H. Harris, Willie Warren and Bill Gibson, were placed in the Navarro county jail in connection with the burning of a barn and automobile of Pleas Halbert at Rice about 3 o’clock Wednesday morning [30 Jul 1930].
       "According to Deputy Sheriffs J. M. Westbrook and Jack Floyd who answered the call and tracked the automobile in which the four negroes escaped for eight miles and made the arrests, the negroes have made statements concerning the affair, and three of them state that they entered a shed to take gasoline from a large tank. After about two gallons of gasoline had been extracted from the tank into a bucket, one of the negroes struck a match, the gasoline exploding.
       "Holley is suffering from a severely burned arm received in the accident.
       "The tracks of the automobile were followed fairly easily due to the rain, the officers said.
       "It was estimated that the loss of the car and barn would approximate $2,500.
       "The cases were Investigated by the county attorney's office Wednesday morning.
       "Formal complaints for alleged arson and burglary were lodged against Holley, Warren and Gibson Wednesday afternoon in Judge S. B. Jordan's court, but C. H. Harris was released. The investigation disclosed that the car used by the negroes belonged to Harris and the arrests were made at the house of Harris, but that he had nothing to do with the case, officers stated."12

Christianna Loop1,2

F, ID# 131, b. 24 July 1830, d. 16 January 1916
  • Other Names*: Christianna Loop Naudain, Christiana Loop Naudain, Christina Loop Naudain, Ann Loop, Ann Naudain.15
  • Obituary*: "Old Resident Dead.
       "Mrs. Ann Naudain, aged 85 years died at her home at Chatfield yesterday afternoon at 1 o’clock, and the remains were interred there this afternoon at 4 o’clock. The deceased had no children and had been widowed for several years. She was a sister to the late W. W. Loop of Rice and her deceased husband was a brother of Mrs. Loop. There are a number of relatives in this county, among them, a niece, Mrs. W. M. Harper of Corsicana."16
  • Note*: • Family records do not seem to mention her marriage to James Painter. • Although her obituary in the Corsicana Daily Sun says she did not have any children, a Naudain family history lists a son, Henry Naudain; he died in childhood and thus was not living when she died, and perhaps the Daily Sun meant she had no surviving children.17,18

  • Obituary*: "Lucian Lloyd Loop Died Here Tuesday at Family Home
       "Lucian Lloyd Loop, age 80, who had lived in Stamford [Texas] since 1904, died Tuesday [November 8, 1949] at 8:35 a.m. as he sat talking with his wife at the family home. He had been in frail health for several years but his death was unexpected.
       "Funeral service was set for Wednesday at 3 p.m. at the Stamford Church of Christ, of which Mr. Loop was a member. D.L. Ashley, minister of the Munday Church of Christ, was to conduct the service, assisted by Charles E. Hill, local minister, with burial in Highland cemetery under the direction of Kinney Funeral Home.
       "A native Texan, Mr. Loop was born at Chatfield on May 24, 1869. He married Bertha Mae Curtis there on April 4, 1894, and they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary here in 1944.
       "Mr. Loop was an elder in the Church of Christ and served as president of the school board for a number of years. He was one of the early blacksmiths here and continued his work through the years. He and his wife lived at Chatfield and Rhone, both in Navarro county, for some 10 years before moving to Stamford in 1904.
       "He is survived by his wife, three daughters, Mrs. A. J. Heflin and Sgt. Etta Hickman, both of Houston, and Mrs. R. L. Howse of Stamford; four sons, R. L. Loop of Houston, Tom of New Orleans, Earl of Odessa and Ben of Stamford; 11 grand-children and two great-grandchildren.
       "Also surviving are two sisters; Mrs. Calvin Kinser of Dallas and Mrs. George Garrett of Houston and a brother, Green Todd of Tyler."16
  • Note*: • He was a blacksmith. They were married by Elder Solon Gipson of the Primitive Baptist Church. It is unclear whether his mother was Jane Patterson or Amelia Miller; Amelia is named on his death certificate. He had heart disease and died of myocardial failure.
    • His grave stone includes the inscription, "How empty and lonely our home since you've gone Dear."
    • They moved to Stamford, Texas in 1904. In 1917 their home burned and all they were able to save was a dresser and an old trunk that contained their wedding picture.17,18,19
