Dick Kendall CASON, Jr, b. 13 Nov 1897, Nacogdoches, Nacogdoches Co, Texas, USA , d. 19 Mar 1934, Houston, Harris Co, Texas, USA (36 years) - Burial in Oak Grove Cemetery, Nacogdoches, Nacogdoches Co, Texas, USA

Dick Kendall was originally named Perkins McKnight Cason but he changed his name to Dick Kendall Cason, Jr. when he entered school.

Another piece of information that was in the Graves book was the fact that Dick Kendall Jr. applied for and was issued 20 patents from the U.S. Patent Office. The application process requires the applicant to list their full name and apparently they did not want to accept that "Dick" was his name. They thought he was a "Richard." He had to send in affidavits to explain that, "My first name is Dick, not Richard."

He died at age of 36 of TB. His father-in-law, Rev. J. W. Mills preached at his funeral.
