Anthony Wayne Meredith

M, ID# 256, b. 12 September 1847, d. 28 August 1946
  • Note*: He came to Texas with his parents in 1852, settling near Athens, but returned to Georgia in 1859, where at age 16 he enlisted in the Confederate army, serving under Generals John B. Hood and Joseph E. Johnston. He contracted dysentery during his Civil War service in the Georgia militia. After the war he worked on Grandmother Reid's plantation and taught school for a year in Tennessee. In December 1872 he left for Texas. During his first years in Texas he farmed and taught school in Van Zandt County. He was elected district clerk of Van Zandt County in 1878 and served for six years. He was appointed sheriff of Van Zandt County, Texas on 14 Jan 1885 after the incumbent died in office and apparently served about a year, declining to seek reelection because he did not like the job. In November 1886 he moved from Canton to Wills Point, thinking the relocation would improve his health. He was tax collector from 1890 to 1891, traveling by horse throughout the county to collect taxes, and was mayor of Wills Point from 1893 to 1896. He was in the real estate business, held a law license, was vice-president of Van Zandt County National Bank, was a 33d-degree Mason, and was active in the Confederate Veterans Association. Some sources give 26 Aug 1946 as his death date. He was known as Wayne. He was survived by a son, four daughters, ten grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.24,25,26,27,28,10

Lucien Dony Bartlett

M, ID# 257, b. 12 September 1858, d. 20 March 1922

Lucien Dony Bartlett's tombstone, Cedars Memorial Gardens, Mineola, Tex., from findagrave.com.
  • Other Names*: Lucien Done Bartlett.
  • Obituary*: BARTLETT.—Mineola, Texas, March 22—L. D. Bartlett, 64 years old, died of pneumonia, following an illness of ten days. For more than nineteen years Mr. Bartlett had carried the mail on route 1 out of Mineola and was one of the oldest mail carriers in this section of the State. He would have been retired on a pension next year. He was survived by his wife, six daughters, Mrs. B. Powell and Kaufman, Mrs. J. P. Cawthon, Terrell; Mrs. D. E. Waters, Cisco; and Misses Pauline and Lucian Bartlett of Terrell, F. E. Bartlett of Dallas and A. [second initial unclear] Bartlett of Mineola. Funeral services will be held at the family home Tuesday morning with burial in the City Cemetery.11
  • Note*: In 1887 he was hired by a Kaufman County, Texas school district to teach school for four months at $45 per month. His tombstone states that he died on 20 Mar 1920, which is probably incorrect as his death certificate says he died on 20 Mar 1922.13,8,7

Dr. William Mathew Harper1

M, ID# 284, b. 11 May 1872, d. 6 March 1939
  • Scrapbook*: "Dr. W. M. Harper reports that his daughter at Wilburton, Okla., still is quite sick but slightly improved. Dr. Harper himself shows very plainly the effects of a recent attack of influenza. He has been up for several days but says his strength is returning very slowly."15
  • Note*: His middle name may have been Matthew or Marion. His birthdate may have been 10 May 1872. He was a physician in Chatfield, Texas in the 1890s and, after 1898, a druggist in Rice, Texas. He later was employed by Dallas wholesale druggists for fifteen years. In 1904 he was president of the Rice Prohibition Club. His purchase of an automobile in 1904, no doubt a rarity for Rice at the time, was reported in the Rice Rustler: "W.M. Harper, the druggist, has just purchased an automobile. he [sic] went to Dallas Tuesday and had it set up and he in company with Dr. Sloan and son and a Mr. Scofield, who is an expert in handling the machine, made the inititory [sic] trip in it coming from Dallas to Rice [a trip of about forty miles]. The party left Dallas at 5 o'clock and though they experienced some inconvenience from rough roads and the dark night, arrived at Rice a few minutes after 10 o'clock."16,17,18

William Buckner Kenner

M, ID# 299, b. 28 July 1901, d. 9 June 1943

William Buckner Kenner's tombstone, Oakwood Cemetery, Corsicana, Tex.
  • Obituary*: "WILLIAM B. KENNER ACCIDENTALLY KILLED EARLY WEDNESDAY
       "BODY FOUND ON BURLINGTON-ROCK ISLAND TRACKS NEAR CHENEYBORO
       "William B. Kenner, aged 41 years, 1436 West Fourth avenue, was found dead on the Burlington and Rock Island Lines tracks about two miles north of Cheneyboro at an early hour Wednesday morning. C. Healer, Richland justice of the peace, returned a coroner’s verdict of “accidentally killed by a train” after conducting an investigation along with B. V. Hatley, deputy sheriff, and others.
       "W. M. Davidson said several friends had eaten supper at the Cheneyboro lodge and after starting back to Corsicana about 11 o’clock, a flat tire was discovered on the car in which Kenner was riding.
       "Kenner, an employee of the American Well and Prospecting Company, fearing the tire could not be repaired, it was stated, started [p. 7] walking toward Navarro to join a fellow employee to ride the remainder of the way. When he did not arrive at Navarro, a search was instituted. Davidson said the body was found near a creek trestle about two miles north of Cheneyboro and that a freight train was seen proceeding south shortly before midnight.
       "Mr. Inscore, weed-burner operator for the railroad lines, is reported to have discovered the body about 8 a. m. and notified Teague offices.
       " Kenner formerly operated a tailor shop here and at one time was employed by the road and bridge department of Navarro county. He was well-known in Corsicana and Navarro county.
       "Funeral services are planned from the Corley Chapel Thursday afternoon at 5 o’clock with burial in Oakwood cemetery. The rites will be conducted by Rev. Matthew Arnold, pastor of the Third Avenue Presbyterian church.
       "Surviving are his wife, Corsicana; a son, Billy Babb, two daughters, Jane and Ann Kenner, all of Corsicana; two half-brothers, Walton Kenner, Washington, D. C. and Jack Kenner, U. S. Army, prisoner of war of the Japanese in Java; a half-sister, Mrs. J. W. Wisenhunt, El Paso, and step-mother, Mrs. L. R. Hollan, El Paso."16

Miss Loop collected family data for decades, probably from the 1930s to the 1970s. Some of it is in her handwriting, and much of it appears to have been written by others and sent to her, but very little of it contains source attribution. There are inconsistencies within the papers. The papers are now in the possession of Roger Bartlett, Austin, Tex., who assigned the page numbers for ease of reference.
