Sampson Connell, III
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 3, 1857
Milam County
Texas, USA
Death: Jan. 10, 1915
Austin
Travis County
Texas, USA

Word was received by telegram To Tax Collector Halsey Davis informing him of the death at the hospital of Insane Asylum in Austin, of his father-in-law, Hon. Sampson Connell, ex-sheriff of this county and member-elect of the Legislature from the district composed of Williamson and Burnet counties.

The death, which was sudden and unexpected, occurred this morning. Mr. Davis and his wife left on the evening train for Austin and accompanied the body Monday morning to Liberty Hill at the cemetery near which town the funeral services were conducted, followed by Masonic rites.

A large number of friends and relatives were present, and the crowd would have been much larger but for the bad condition of the roads, which rendered traveling in autos almost impossible. Among the many floral offerings was one from the courthouse attaches, of whom the deceased was for many years a follower. He had many honest virtues and attracted to himself a large number of friends, who always rallied to him when he was a candidate for office. Let us forget his faults - we all have them - and remember his virtues.
