Monday {one line not legible} telegram from R. E. Bryan in Bronte announcing the death of Mr. Terrell Bryan and requesting that Mr. Bennett, Albert Schnable and Mrs. John Cameron make arrangements for a Masonic funeral.  Mrs. Tom Latta was a daughter of the deceased and was also a foster mother of Mrs. Cameron.  Deceased was born November 17, 1837 and died May 16, 1920. He  was badly wounded in the civil war in the service of the confederacy and never recovered. Some ten or twelve years ago his feet slipped from under him in front of the First National bank and this increased his suffering.

For a number of years he was justice of the peace at Stephenville, and when he became feeble was sent to the soldiers home at Austin, but did not remain there long.  After returning from there, he went to the home of his daughter at Bronte where he died.
