John Naudain

M, ID# 21853
  • Scrapbook*: • "LOCAL BREVITIES
       "—John Naudain, a soldier of Troop B, First cavalry, who is home on a furlough visiting his relatives in South Haven, was in town last Thursday. His command was in the hottest of the fighting at Santiago, and he has many interesting stories to tell of the incidents of that memorable struggle. Two colored regiments formed a part of his division, and he says there were no braver men in the whole army than those black troopers showed themselves to be. The Rough Riders also fought near him and fourth well, Colonel Roosevelt especially distinguished himself by his almost reckless bravery. Mr. Naudain was wounded in the breast during the assault on San Juan hill, but was able to keep his place in the ranks. Exposure in the trenches, however, brought on an attack of fever, from which he did not recover until after the regiment had reached Montauk Point, when he was granted a sick leave. He has served eight years with the regulars, and likes the service well enough to stay with it."
    • "John Naudain of Troop B, First cavalry, regular army, arrived home Saturday night from Montauk Point, L.I., on a thirty days’ furlough. John is looking hale and hearty now, but says he has been through the rubbers, and was just dismissed from the hospital and sent off on a furlough to recuperate. John was in the fiercest of the fighting at Santiago. Troop B fought side by side with Roosevelt’s Rough Riders and the wo colored regiments in the capture of San Juan. He says the boys all swear by Generals Roosevelt and Wheeler, who were right with the boys all through the fighting, riding up and down the firing line and encouraging them with words of cheer and commendation. John, like all the regular army boys, keenly feels the disposition manifested by the public to laud and praise the volunteers and pass the regulars by with little or no notice when the fact of the matter is that the regulars stood the brunt of the battle before Santiago. After the surrender of Santiago he says the Spaniards came into their lines and mixed with them freely without manifesting any apparent grudge, and traded trinkets for bacon and hardtack, of which they had plenty and to spare. He laid by a great collection of relics which he is daily expecting to arrive. South Haven feels proud of the fact that it had one soldier boy in this famous battle and that he acquitted himself with credit."1,2

  • Other Names*: William Irick.
  • Obituary*: "William Earl Irick, age 83 of Early died Wednesday evening, June 13, 2007 at the Brownwood Regional Medical Center. Funeral services were held at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, June 16, 2007 in the Heartland Funeral Home Chapel with burial following in the Santa Anna Cemetery with military honors.
       "He was born March 14, 1924 in Coleman County, the son of the late William Earl Irick, Sr. and Mary Lillian Whetstone Irick. He attended schools in Santa Anna and later served in the U.S. Army during World War II. He was a decorated veteran receiving a purple heart and was especially proud of his rifleman commendation. He served at the Battle of the Bulge and in Normandy and was currently a member of the Disabled American Veterans. He was one of the true real cowboys and will be remembered always wearing his Levis and boots everywhere. He used to love to break mustangs. He later moved to Brown County where he farmed and ranched. He also worked in the oilfields for Haliburton and was a lineman for Coleman County Telephone Coop. In his later years, he worked as a mechanic for Sewalt Butane Company. He was very interested in kids and helped to organize the first Early baseball team. He will be missed by the many lived he touched. He was married to Mary Ruth Lamb in Santa Anna on February 1, 1946. He was a Baptist.
       "He is survived by his wife, Mary Ruth Irick of Early; a daughter, Beth Joyner of Early; three grandchildren, Vance Gregory Joyner, Amy Lynne Joyner and Lori Leigh Joyner all of Early; two great-grandchildren, David Lynn Joyner and Kristy Nichole Joyner both of Early; two sisters, Ruth Laverne Clark of Naples, Florida and Mary Frances Williams of Brownwood. He is also survived by two nephews, Frank Williams and Donald Harlow.
       "He was preceded in death by a brother, John Franklin Irick."5
