Col. Ellsberry Richard Lane

M, ID# 1743, b. 6 July 1840, d. 18 August 1904
  • Scrapbook*: "Ex-senatory Lane [sic], of San Antonio, of the firm of Lane and Millett was a conspicuous figure in the Austin Cattle Convention. He is about 6 ft. 2 in., very slim, straight as an Indian, (and it may be added - as black and swarthy as a Commanche), with [sic] piercing eyes, straight black hair, and very dignified in appearance on the street. He is a native cowboy, delights in having it known; a lawyer by profession, somewhat of a politician and an exceedingly shrewd and adroit opponent in debate."15
  • Note*: He moved with his father to Missouri and then, in 1852, to Goliad, Texas. He graduated from Bastrop (Texas) Military Institute in 1860, served in the Confederate Army, was a lawyer and district attorney, was elected to the Texas Senate in 1878 for a four-year term, and later served as judge of the 36th Judicial District of Texas for nine months by appointment by Gov. Sayers. He and his brother-in-law, Alonzo Millett, established the Millett and Lane Cattle Company in La Salle County, Texas in 1881, with headquarters at Cibolo Station, Texas, which later became known as Millett, Texas, but he devoted much of his time to practicing law in San Antonio while Alonzo lived at the ranch. A newspaper story about him when he was in his mid-forties described him as "about 6 ft. 2 in., very slim, straight as an Indian (and it might be added as black and swarthy as a Comanche), with piercing eyes, straight black hair, and very dignified in appearance on the street." It continued: "He is a native cowboy, delights in having it known; a lawyer by profession, somewhat of a politician and an exceedingly shrewd and adroit opponent in debate." Judge Lane died of a ruptured appendix at the Laurafield Ranch near Millett. From his obituary in the San Antonio Semi-weekly Express: "Col. Lane was a gentleman of the old school—a man of splendid prensence [sic], reserved manner and dignified bearing, but courteous at all times. He was positive in his convictions and stern in his judgements [sic], but withal exercised a broad liberality toward the opinions of others. Generosity was a part of his nature, and devotion to his friends a dominant characteristic. As a lawyer he had a [sic] few superiors. His knowledge of the principles of jurisprudence was accurate and his mind was trained in the stern logic of the law. His client's causes became his own, an [sic] though fair in debate there was a zeal thrown into his work which accounted for much of the distinction at the bar which he enjoyed." From his obituary in the Dallas Morning News: "[He was] one of the most noted criminal land lawyers of Texas . . . [and] was in some of the most noted law cases of the Southwest . . . He was a man of culture and was highly esteemed."16,15,17,18,11

Capt. Alonzo Millett

M, ID# 1744, b. November 1842, d. 25 February 1907

Alonzo Millett, from The Trail Drivers of Texas, 2nd ed.
  • Scrapbook*: • "Alonzo Millett, the cattle king of Kansas, is down from his 50,000 acre ranch in Ellsworth county and is stopping at the Windsor."
    • "Alonzo Millett of San Antonio Has Petitioned for Bankruptcy.
       "San Antonio, Texas, October 1 [1901].—Alonzo Millett, a stockman of this city, today filed a voluntary petition in bankruptcy in the Federal court; his liabilities are money borrowed on unsecured notes amounting to $119,049.57, with assets to the amount of $3305, although the greater portion of the latter sum is exempt under the law. William Hurst, George F. Block, August Klehne and J. W. Wiley, composing a firm in Kansas City, are creditors of the petitioner to the amount of $79,049.57, the money being borrowed of them on twenty notes dated during the months of February, March and April of 1899 and bearing 10 percent interest. W. T. Caeser of New York City is a creditor for $40,000, having loaned that amount on a note dated July 2, 1880, and bearing 6 per cent interest. The latter, principal and interest, is credited with a payment of $32,500, executed on January 5, 1897.”.18,19
  • Obituary*: "CAPTAIN ALONZO MILLETT KILLED BY FALL FROM HORSE
       "Captain Alonzo Millett was killed on his ranch in Colorado last Monday by a fall from his horse.
       "The captain was for many years a citizen and large ranch owner of La Salle county. the town of Millett was named for him.
       "The remains were shipped to San Antonio where they were intered [sic].
       "The Captain was 63 years old and a confederate veteran."20
  • Biography*: Alonzo Millett was born in Bastrop county [Texas] in 1845, and spent his boyhood days in that country and at Seguin, where he attended school. He had two brothers in school with him, and when the Civil War broke out the three Millett brothers were the first to volunteer. Alonzo Millett, at the time only 16 years old, entered the Confederate army and with General Wood he went through many battles and fought so bravely that he was promoted three successive times. His twin brother, Leonidas Millett, was killed at Manassas. When the war ended, Alonzo Millett returned to Texas and during the course of years that followed the Millett brothers gained wealth. Their ranches were scattered over the States of Kansas, Idaho, Dakota and Texas. Misfortune came, however, and their wealth was swept away. But Alonzo Millett persevered, and at the time of his death he owned a large ranch in San Juan Valley, Colorado. He was killed by being thrown from a horse on his ranch in Colorado, and was buried at San Antonio, Texas.21
  • Note*: He was Leonidas's twin and was reared in Seguin, Texas. He served in the Confederate Army, reaching the rank of captain. After the war he and brothers Eugene and Hiram ranched in Guadalupe County, Texas, then in Baylor County, then in Kansas, and in La Salle County, Texas. Their brother-in-law, Ellsberry Richard Lane, joined them in a ranching endeavor in northern La Salle County in 1881 that by 1884 had grown to 125,000 acres and employed sixty cowboys. The ranch's railroad stop, originally known as Cibolo Station, evolved into the town of Millett, and Alonzo was the first postmaster, serving from 1888 to 1901. He was living in Denver, Colorado in 1905 and died on his Colorado ranch in a fall from a horse.
    A visitor to the cemetery in October 2012 was unable to find a grave marker for him.
    His Find A Grave memorial says he was born in 1845 in Bastrop County, Texas.22,23,24,25

Mary Louise ('Mollie') Winkler

F, ID# 1750, b. 5 July 1853, d. 10 May 1925

Mollie Winkler Frost.

  • Other Names*: Mollie Winkler, Mary Louise Frost, Mollie Frost.
  • Obituary*: "MRS. FROST PASSED AWAY AT HER HOME HERE SUN. MORNING
       "WAS WIDOW OF LATE JUDGE SAM R. FROST—GREATLY BELOVED
       "Mrs. Mary L. Frost, aged 72 years, widow of the late Judge Sam R. Frost and daughter of Col. C. M. Winkler, a noted Texas jurist and soldier, passed away at 10:15 yesterday morning after an illness of more than a year, and the funeral took place at 3:30 this afternoon with services conducted by her pastor, Rev. E. W. Potter, of the First Methodist church, and her six sons-in-law, Col. A. N. Justiss, Max D. Almond, Guy M. Gibson, Geo. E. Jester, R. L. Calkins and A. D. Kneale, acting as pallbearers.
       "An immense throng attended the funeral and there was a great profusion of beautiful flowers.
       "The deceased is survived by nine children, Mrs. A. N. Justiss, Mrs. Geo. E. Jester, Mrs. Max D. Almond, Mrs. Guy M. Gibson, Mrs. R. L. Calkins, Mrs. A. D. Kneale, Roger Frost, Clinton Frost and Barry Frost, and by two sisters and three brothers, Mrs. Kate Mooring of Corsicana, Miss Mira Winkler of El Paso, C. M. Winkler of Fort Worth, Walton Winkler of El Paso, and Tom Winkler of Waco.
       "Nineteen grand children also survive.
       "The deceased was reared and married in Corsicana. She was the daughter of Judge C. M. Winkler, a noted Confederate soldier and Texas jurist, who was a member of the Texas Supreme Court at the time of his death. The deceased was a woman of many notable characteristics of mind and heart. Possessed of a naturally retiring and home-loving nature, she was yet a woman of a fine and highly cultivated mind and kept abreast of all that was good for her country and home. Her great and noble life was spent in the training and rearing of her large family, and they, although grown to manhood and womanhood, will yet miss her wise counsel and noble motherly admonition.
       "The community in which she herself was reared and in which she reared her large family, recognized in her one of the town’s noblest and best women, and her memory, like those of her distinguished father and husband, will live and be honored as long as time lasts with all who knew her, and her many beautiful and lovable attributes of true womanly character will be a sacred heritage to Corsicana and all its people."23
  • Scrapbook*: First State Bank Closed This P. M.
    The First State Bank closed its doors at 2 o’clock this afternoon out of respect to the memory of Mrs. S. R. Frost, who was buried at 3:30 Monday afternoon. Mrs. Frost was the mother of Mrs. George E. Jester, Mr. Jester being president of the First State Bank.
    The firm of Boynton and Calkins, Ford dealers, was also closed out of respect to the memory of Mrs. Frost, she being the mother-in-law of Mr. R. L. Calkins of this firm.24
  • Note*: The funeral home record gives 62 as her age at death (even though it also gives 5 Jul 1853 as her birth date and 10 May 1925 as her death date, making her age 71) and gives S. Smith of Alabama as her mother.8
