|Birth: ||Jul. 29, 1846|
|Death: ||Sep. 3, 1911|
On last Sunday evening at 5:30 p.m. Mr. James Leatherwood formerly of Johnson County died at the home of his son. Mr. Leatherwood had been to church and stopped at his sonīs, Henry, to take dinner. He ate a hearty dinner after which he walked out to the barn and when found was in a dying condition. They carried him in the house and sent for a doctor, but he was dead when the doctor arrived. All he ever said was "pain in my bowels."
Mr. Leatherwood came to Texas at the close of the war and settled in Johnson county near Cleburne. He was a member of the Baptist church, a member of Pat Cleburne Camp 88 UCV at Cleburne. He was a Mason belonging to the Blue Lodge at Cleburne. He also belonged to the Royal Arch Chapter at Crosbyton.
I have known him for 35 years. He gave me a job of work soon after I came to the state. He was a good soldier and a good kind, loving husband and father. He has finished his work and has gone to meet his loved ones who have gone before him.
Three years ago he lost his wife. They buried her on the farm close to the house. On Monday morning, Mr. Wooten and two other gentlemen and myself went to the grave, removed the remains and placed her by the side of him in the one grave in Crosbyton.

TEXAS HISTORICAL MARKER - PANSY BAPTIST CHURCH
The Pansy Baptist Church was organized in 1905 by J. V. Leatherwood, John Holt, P. H. Leatherwood, Snow Loyd, and J. M. Leatherwood to serve the residents of the Pansy Community. Church services were conducted in the school building until 1916 when the congregation constructed its first sanctuary. An arbor was built on the church grounds for revival services. The church building was moved two miles south in 1946 for the convenience of the membership. A parsonage was erected in 1947 for the congregation's first full-time pastor. A new sanctuary was built and was dedicated on July 16, 1950. The church building burned in August 1965, and services were held in a church member's barn until December, when a new structure was completed. The church supported a strong mission outreach program. Through the years population dwindled in the rural community of Pansy. In 1995 the remaining members of the Pansy Baptist Church voted to disband. The church building was donated to the Mt. Zion Baptist Church, an African American congregation in Floydada. The building was moved 32 miles by 140 volunteers from Crosbyton, Pansy, Floydada, and Wiley. (1996)
