     Mr. S.S. JAMISON died at his home near this place Friday night and was buried at the Odd Fellow's Cemetery Saturday. The religious service was conducted by Rev. E. Bailey. He was also buried with Masonic honors, Col. Norton Moses conducting the service.
     Mr. Jamison was near four score years of age, and was an exemplary Christian gentleman. He was an elder in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and ever faithful in his Christian duties and his obligations to his fellow-man.
Mr. Jamison had been a citizen of this county for many years, and he will be sadly mnissed by many of our citizens. The Bulletin extends condolence to the bereaved relatives.

     (Will not Col. Stevens or some other close friend of deceased furnish an obituary for publication?)

     ==============
     Burnet Bulletin
     Dec 1, 1904
     A GOOD OLD MAN GONE

     As I delight to be in the society of men older than myself, so the gradual going out of the patriarchs is to me a source of infinite pathos. May those of us in this community who are soon to follow him to the grave be as well prepared as my late friend, S.S. JAMISON.
      Months ago, the close observer noticed that his steps were getting slower, his visits to town less frequent, and he began to be missed from his accustomed seat in the church and Sunday School. For many a day, the writer of this will regret the absence of his tall gaunt form, his kindly greeting, his unfailing good humor and words of cheer.
      Mr. Jamison was a native of Illinois, the rigorous climate of which was too much for him, so he was advised by his physician, who suspected he had incipient consumption, to seek the Sunny South, and he has lived in Texas over 40 years. The fact that he reached past the allotted three score and ten years is an eloquent tribute to the temperate life he has led. Had he survived til next June the 8th, he would have been 78 years old.
     The dominant traits of Mr. jamison's character were firmness, cheerfulness, courage, strong convictions, and stern religious duty, partaking of the nature of the old Scotch covenanters, of whom he reminded me, and from whom he was descended. One of his ancestors fought at the siege of Londonderry.
     I said a noticable trait was a piety, but it was not of the dismal, sanctimonious kind; with the most clock-like regularity at service, there was sunshine in his devotions. He and I were comparing notes once as to Sunday School experience. My record was over fifty years, barring the time I was a Confederate soldier. He modestly remarked, "I can beat you: I have been going to Sunday School over sixty years!" Sunday after Sunday for years, he walked to the Presbyterian house of worship, in Burnet, a distance of one and a half or two miles, in all sorts of weather, until declining health forced him to desist. What an example to the rest of us!
     Another tie that bound me to him was his ardent belief and practice of Prohibition. Next to his religious views, the theme of his heart was opposition to the accursed Liquor Traffic. May the memory of his brave, consistent course here cause many a boy who knew him to "go and do likewise."
     As I stood by his bedside and studied his giant form, his majestic face and head, saw this consistent, brave, restless spirit go out like a candle with the stainless life passing into the hands of the recording angel, I recalled Victor Hugo's description of Jean Valjean's death: "Those august hands moved no more...Without doubt, in the gloom some mighty angel was standing, with outstretched wings, awaiting the soul."
     Those who knew Samuel S. Jamison well, know how to sympathize with the devoted daughter and his brave sons. I do with all my heart.
     Rest from thy labors, worthy old friend! Well can you say with heroic Paul: "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith; hence forth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge shall give me at that day; and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing."

     J.A.S., Burnet, Nov. 25, 1904

     W.O. Jamison Dead

     S.S. Jamison informs us of the sad news of the death of his son, W.O. Jamison, who passed away February 1st, near Ban Arnold, Texas. He died of pneumonia. Mr. Jamison was a good citizen, and had many friends in Burnet county who will deeply regret his death. He leaves many dear relatives to mourn his death. To the aged father and other near relatives, the Bulletin extends sincere sympathy.

Cecil Brent JAMISON, 95, of 406 Anders St. died Wednesday, November 27, 1985, in a local hospital. Funeral services were at 2:00 pm today in Adams Funeral Chapel, the Rev. A.A. BRATCHER officiated. Burial was in Hillcrest Cemetery in Marlin, Texas. Mr. JAMISON was born March 20, 1890 near Glen Rose, Tx., the son of John Kenner JAMISON and Ella Nelia LOVE JAMISON. He married Annie Averil OWEN Dec. 24, 1913, in Calvert, Texas, Robertson county. As a lad he worked as a ranch hand in the Indian Territory which is now the state of Oklahoma. He spent most of his life as an automobile mechanic. He graduated from Ford Motor Company mechanic school in the early 1920's. He moved to Marlin from Hearne, Texas, in 1930 and was employed by the Ford dealership, Hackel Motor Company, and later at Garrett Motor Company. He retired in 1978 at the age of 88. Accounts of his habit of carrying a small flower in his mouth published in Ripley's Believe It or Not and newspapers across the nation won him many new acquaintances. Mr. JAMISON was an active member of the first Baptist Church of Marlin, Texas. Survivors include his wife of Marlin: two sisters, Mrs. W.T. (Norvella ) STRAMER of Austin, Texas and Mrs. Jim (Cornelia) OTTINGER of Desert Center Calif.; several nieces and nephews. A daughter, Mrs. L.D. (Annie June) PHELPS died September 25, 1985. Eight brothers and sisters also preceded him in death.

From the Marlin Democrat, Marlin, Texas, November 29, 1985

Notes from Diane Jamison, Brent's double third cousin: Brent was a tall, thin man, who never met a stranger, and had a very positive effect on those he met. He would call on the telephone every New Years Day, those he loved dearly (no one knows how many), and wish them a Happy New Year. I was among the list and have dearly missed his voice for many years. He always had a flower (a Bachelor's Button) in the corner of his mouth and if he went home for lunch from his work, had a fresh one in his mouth. He was our favorite cousin, and he created a lasting sweet memory in the minds of many relatives and friends.

John Kenner JAMISON 17 Sep 1854 18 May 1911
Last Thursday morning (May 18, 1911) in Burnet, Texas, J. K. JAMISON was shot and almost instantly killed by J. A. HALL, on the sidewalk in front of the postoffice. The weapon used was an automatic 25 caliber pistol, and decedent's body, according to the statement of undertaker STAPP showed four bullet wounds, three in the front part of the body and one through an arm. In his examining trial held Friday and Saturday before Judge J. T. WOODWARD, HALL was admitted bail in the sum of $1,000 with W. C. GALLOWAY, J. R. SEXTON and T. E. HAMMOND as sureties. Some kind of a difference between the two men, the nature of which The Burnet Bulletin has not learned, seemed to have been the immediate cause of the trouble. There were perhaps more than a half dozen eye-witnesses to the tragedy, and two or three of them heard portions of the conversation preceeding same. Decedent was a man far past middle age and leaves a large family. He has been a resident of this County for probably a third of a century or longer. His acquaintance extended throughout a wide section of the state. Mr. HALL has been a resident of Burnet for about ten years. Previous to this he resided in Lampasas County. Until a year or two ago he was engaged in the grocery business at this place. He is a middle aged man and has several children. His wife died several years ago.

IN MEMORY


One year ago December 31, 1945, God took our husband and father to be with Him in glory. Only God in heaven knows the heartache and loneliness we have endured. Friends and relatives have helped to lighten the burden and cheer the way, and, God has been so good and blessed us in many ways. Although your body has gone from our sight and will never again hear your voice, you are always present in our hearts, and many times you have returned to us in our dreams. Just keep on rejoicing and singing praises to him; we'll join you some day in that heavenly realm. When our work here is finished, and the Lord says come, we'll clasp hands up there with our loved one. Mrs. J. R. BEATTY and Children.

Arthur Brown LYNCH 26 Apr 1893 11 Jul 1929
James Nelson LYNCH 20 Mar 1917 11 Jul 1929
OBITUARY: Former Grayson Man and Son Die in Illinois Crash
Brown LYNCH and James LYNCH victims of Mishaps Thursday Afternoon of Last Week near Sherman, Illinois; Albert Lee LYNCH Injured.

Springfield, Illinois, July 12 - Brown LYNCH 36, of near Spaulding, and James LYNCH, his son, 13 years old, were instantly killed and Albert Lee LYNCH, 4, was seriously hurt when the truck in which they were riding were struck by a northbound interurban at 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon, July 11, at Hussey crossing north of Sherman. Hussey crossing is about a mile north of Sherman and one-fourth mile east of state route four. The road is a narrow dirt wayside drive used largely for local traffic. Mr. LYNCH and his two sons left his home about 2 o'clock for Sherman to get a load of coal and were close to Sherman when the accident happened. The interurban No. 52 of the Illinois Terminal Railroad System, north bound, was in charge of Orville KREIDER, conductor, and George WASHBOND, motorman. The car proceeded on to Peoria after the accident. The injured boy was brought to Springfield and taken to St. John Hospital. According to Alfred HUSSEY, who resides near the scene of the accident, either the brakes of the auto failed to work or the engine of the car stalled on the tracks and it was hit by the interurban head on. As far as could be learned there were no eye witnesses of the accident other than the motorman of the train. The view was also expressed by a resident of the community that LYNCH could have been caught by the car even though cautious. It was stated that, had he first looked south and then north before proceeding to cross the tracks, he could have been hit by the interurban coming from the south. Trainmen said LYNCH came to a practical halt at the foot of the steep grade which leads up to the crossing. The two were apparently instantly killed. Albert Lee was in a semi-conscious condition when taken to the hospital and appeared to be suffering more from shock than from the injuries, which are not believed to be serious. The truck was hurled about sixty feet alongside the west side of the track, barely missing a telephone pole. Bodies of the occupants were found near the crossing. Contents of the pockets of LYNCH were found in a heap near the body. The identify of the man and boy killed was disclosed by an envelope found near the crossing bearing the name of Brown LYNCH. The truck license No. 60788 was also issued in that name. Mr. LYNCH is a truck farmer and when his home was called by the State Register it was found that he and his two sons had left home a short time before for Sherman for a load of coal. This was the first information the family had of the accident and arrangements were immediately made to bring Mrs. LYNCH to Springfield. The bodies of Mr. LYNCH and son, James, were brought to the Metcalf undertaking parlors. According to residents of the section around Hussey crossing, the I. T. S. tracks are visible for more than a quarter of a mile either way from the crossing. Surviving are Mrs. LYNCH, two daughters, Mary, aged 14, and Eileen, aged 6, together with the injured son, Albert Lee.

Her sufferings were great, though she never murmured, but bore them with Christian fortitude.

Nancy Texas (Nannie) BEATTY 23 Jan 1857 26 Dec 1904
While reveling in the happy pleasures of the Christmas holidays, thinking little of sorrow or trouble, the news flashed over our community last Monday morning that death's harvester was yet busy in gathering his sheaves, and as is so often the case, one of the best of our community was summoned to cross the river in the person of Mrs. Ed TRIPLETT. Her illness was of short duration, and her death was due to acute pneumonia. Every effort was made to save her but all in vain. Mrs. TRIPLETT was the daughter of Uncle Frank BEATTY and was born near West Clifty, Grayson County, Kentucky, January 28, 1857. She was married to Robert HALL October 16, 1881. Her first husband having died, she married Ed TRIPLETT, January 10, 1894. She was laid to rest in the family burying ground December 27, 1904, surrounded by relatives and friends. She was a devoted member of the Methodist Church and was never happier than when sitting in her pew, and drinking in the gospel truths she loved so well. To the bereaved ones it is a sad stroke, but may their lives all be like hers and as triumphant in the end. She's gone from earth from sin and woe, She's free from toil and care, She's heard her Savior's welcome voice, And joined him in the air.
