Capt. William Hughes Lemmon

M, ID# 19133, b. 25 February 1840, d. 4 September 1893
  • Obituary*: Death of Capt. Lemmon.
    Capt. W. H. Lemmon died at 8:30 last evening at his residence, 341 Cole avenue, after a lingering illness, aged 53 years and 6 months. He was born in Polk county, Missouri, in 1840 and served through the war in Price's division, with the rank of captain. At the close of the war he came to Dallas, and having had the advantage of a good education, he started life here by building and conducting an academy, to which his father-in-law, Mr. O. W. Knight, contributed $400 and donated the necessary land. The academy, situated then where North Dallas is now, was the finest school in Dallas county, and here were educated by Capt. Lemmon Judge Thomas F. Nash, Judge West and a number of people who are now engaged in the professions or other active walks of life. It is said that there are about 200 persons in Dallas with a liberal education whose alma mater was Capt. Lemmon's academy, but for which, owing to the adverse conditions to education immediately following the war, most of them would probably have never been fitted for the avocations they are following.
    In 1870 Capt. Lemmon relinquished the pursuit of a teacher to accept an engagement with D. M. Osborne & Co., as traveling agent in the sale of machinery, and in 1875 he went into partnership with Mr. O. P. Bowser, not senator Bowser, in the machinery and agricultural implement business, in which he continued until 1885 when he engaged in the real estate business.
    He was a devout attendant of and hard worker in the Christian church, and during the years of Dallas' greatest prosperity he was ever active in projecting and aiding enterprises for the upbuilding of the city. He leaves five children.6
  • Note*: He was a captain in the Civil War, after which he moved to Dallas, Texas and operated an academy until 1870. From his obituary in the Dallas Morning News: "This academy, situated then where North Dallas is now, was the finest school in Dallas county . . . . It is said that there are about 200 persons in Dallas with a liberal education whose alma mater was Capt. Lemmon's academy, but for which, owing to the adverse conditions to education immediately following the war, most of them would probably have never been fitted for the avocations they are following." He then was engaged in the sale of machinery and agricultural implements until 1885, when he entered the real estate business. His home was near the present-day intersection of Lemmon Avenue and Cole Avenue in Dallas, and Lemmon Avenue was named for him. His survivors included his wife, a daughter, a grandson, and three sisters.4,7
