SUMMONS COMES TO WOMAN WHOSE FAMILY PLAYED BIG PART IN CITY'S EARLIER HISTORY

Mrs. Ella Tobin Carr, wife of J.M. Carr of this city, died yesterday morning at 8:15 o'clock at the Santa Rosa Infirmary, after an illness of little more than a week. Mrs. Carr was a daughter of William Girard and Josephine Tobin, a family whose history is interwoven forever with that of San Antonio and this section of the country. John W.

Ella Tobin Carr was born in this city July 16, 1863, and grew up through childhood and girlhood to be one of the belles of her day. She is survived by her husband J.M. Carr, and by three daughters, Mrs. W.P. Colvert, of San Antonio, Mrs. Scott Schriner of Chicago and Mrs. Charles Armstrong of Armstrong, Texas, as well as three brothers, Maj. W.G. Tobin, Sheriff J.W. Tobin and Maj. C.M. Tobin, and her sisters Mrs. Sam C. Bell, Mrs. W.P. Rote, Mrs. Lucy Tobin Thornton, of San Antonio, and Mrs. A.W. Burroughs of Fruita, Col. Two other sisters Mrs. John A. Frazier and Mrs. J. M. Vance of this city are dead: Mrs. Vance having died only a few months ago.
Mrs. Scott Schriner of Chicago reached San Anotnio last night. The funeral will take place this morning at 11 o'clock at St. Mark's Episcopol church of which Mrs. Carr has ben a life-long communicant. Bishop James Steptoe Jonhston will officiate.
