       "Burial Is to Occur at Corsicana Under Auspices of the Masons.
       "Special to The News.
       "Corsicana, Tex., Jan. 2 [1908].—Judge Sam R. Frost of this city died in Fort Worth last night, where he was operated on. He was a native of Texas and had for many years been a resident of Corsicana. At the time of his death he was attorney for the Houston and Texas Central Railroad, a position he had held for a number of years. He will be buried here tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock. The Masons will attend the funeral in a body, he having been a member of that order."19
  • Note*: Some sources say he was born in Huntsville, Walker County, Texas. His parents and he moved to Navarro County, Texas in 1846, the year he was born, and he was raised on a farm in the western part of the county, near the Dresden and Raleigh communities. He served with Company I, 19th Texas Cavalry, in the Civil War. After attending school in Alvarado for four years and reading law for a year and a half, he was sworn in as a lawyer at Corsicana in October 1870. In 1870 or 1871 he was appointed county attorney, but the "scalawag" governor, E. J. Davis, removed him for obstructing reconstruction. He was elected county judge of Navarro County in 1876, the first under the post-Reconstruction state constitution; represented Navarro County in the 16th Texas Legislature in 1879; became district judge in 1886; represented Johnson, Hill, Ellis, and Navarro Counties in the 21st Legislature in 1889 (but resigned before completing his term); and was an attorney for the Cotton Belt and the Houston and Texas Central railroads. His wedding in 1872 was the first in the new Methodist church. The family lived at 1325 West 13th St. in Corsicana. Cross Roads, a western Navarro County town, was renamed Frost in his honor.24,25,26,27

Roger Frost

M, ID# 1764, b. 18 November 1877, d. 17 January 1943
  • Other Names*: Samuel Roger Frost, Jr., Samuel Rogers Frost, Jr.14
  • Obituary*: "ROGER FROST WAS BURIED ON MONDAY; NATIVE CORSICANAN
       "Funeral services for Roger Frost aged 65 years, who died at the Navarro Clinic Saturday night, were held Monday morning at 11 o'clock from the chapel of the Sutherland - McCammon Funeral Home. Rev E. F. Bohmfalk, pastor of the First Methodist church, conducted the rites. Burial was in Oakwood cemetery.
       "Mr. Frost was a native of Corsicana, the son of the late Judge and Mrs. S. R. Frost. For the past several years he had been connected with the Houston Oil Company and made his headquarters at Taft.
       "Surviving are four sisters, Mrs. A. N. Justiss, Corsicana; Mrs. George E. Jester, Dallas; Mrs. Max Almond, Corsicana; Mrs. Guy Gibson, Corsicana; a brother, Barry Frost, Corsicana, and other relatives.
       "Pallbearers were N. C. Goodman, J. D. Redden, Joe Simkins, Dude Ransom, N. C. Pinkston, J. N Garitty, W. B. Slaughter and Tom Pinkston."15
  • Note*: Although his death certificate gives his full name as Roger Frost, his grave marker gives his name as Samuel Rogers Frost, Jr. His father's middle name seems to have been Romulus, and no record was found giving Rogers as his father's middle name. Roger never married. At the time of his death he lived in San Antonio and worked in the oil industry. One source says he died on 16 Jan 1943 in Corsicana, Texas.16,17,18,19

       "Funeral services for Guy M. Gibson, 67, long-time Corsicana resident, who died at the Navarro clinic Monday morning, were held Tuesday afternoon at 3 o’clock from the First Methodist Church. The rites were conducted by Rev. Erwin F. Bohmfalk, pastor of the church, of which Gibson was a long-time member and teacher of the Brotherhood Bible class. Burial was in Oakwood cemetery.
       "A native of Mississippi, he was educated at Midlothian, and came to Corsicana as a young man. At the time of his death he operated extensive land interests near the site where Richland and Chambers creeks converge in southeast Navarro county and formerly was in the oil business. He had served for years as a levee improvement district supervisor, and was president of the Corsicana Warehouse company for a number of years.
       "Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Cleo Frost Gibson, Corsicana; two sons, Guy Gibson, Jr., Corsicana, and First Lt. Billy Gibson, U.S. Army Germany; two daughters, Mrs. L. P. Livingston, Temple, and Mrs. Newton Burnett, Jackson, Miss; a granddaughter, a brother, Gene Gibson, San Antonio; three sisters, Mrs. Thad Barrington and Mrs. Dudley Gatewood, both of Ennis; and Mrs. Charles Hine, Los Angeles, and other relatives.

       "Honorary pallbearers were members of the Brotherhood class.
       "McCammon Funeral Home directed."14

    • He was in the oil business and then operated extensive land interests in southeast Navarro County, Texas. For many years he was president of Corsicana Warehouse Company.15,16
