Last Rites For Dan Wallace Are Held on Monday
A. D. (Dan) Wallace, well known Knox county farmer, passed away at the Knox county hospital at 9:00 o'clock Saturday morning (August 18, 1945). Mr Wallace had undergone a major operation several days earlier, and little hope had been held for his recovery.
Mr. Wallace was born in Johnson County, Texas, on April 12, 1881, and was 64 years, 4 months and 6 days of age. He was married to Miss Minervie Owens at Frost, Navarro County, Texas, on March 18, 1902, and in September of that year they moved to Knox County. For over 40 years, Mr. Wallace was one of Knox County's well known farmers.
Surviving him are his wife, five sons and two daughters, who are: Mrs. A.D. Wallace, Munday; Pvt. Willmern (Wilburn) Wallace, stationed in France; Lonnie Wallace, F 1/c, in the South Pacific; Cpl. S .J. Wallace, Tampa Fla.; Louis and Emmett (Emmitt) Wallace, Munday; Mrs H .L. Rowell, Happy (Texas), and Mrs. Elmer Dean, Munday.
A brother, W. J. Wallace of Munday; two sisters Mrs D. K. Gray, Houston (Texas), and Mrs. F. W. Franklin, Goree (Texas); 19 grandchildren and one great grandchild also survive.
Funeral service were held from the Church of Christ at five o'clock last Monday afternoon, conducted by Minister O.H. Harrison of Holliday (Texas). Burial was in the Johnson Cemetery, with Mahan Funeral Home in charge of the arrangements.
Pallbearers were Coy Tuggle, Cotton Smith, Lamer Sercery, Thaxton Sercery, S. R. Hudson and Thurman Gulley. Flower bearers were France Routen, Doris Kitehens, Jo Nell Hill, Jane Hill, Juana Tuggle and Billie Shackelford.
Dan came from Ellis County Texas to Knox County Texas in 1898 with his brother Jack. Dan and Jack married sisters. Dan married Minervea Owen, and they had a farm east of Munday. He and Nervie had nine children, all but two lived to be grown. They had six boys and three girls, JP and Ora died young. Dan was a fun loving man and loved to have his kids and grandkids around him. He was known to round up his grandkid on Saturday when they were all in town and feed them all the ice-cream they could eat. He would have been more fun if he hadn't had a lot of stomach problems. That stomach problem turned out to be gall stones and when they tried to remove them he died from the surgery. If that would have happened in this day and time he would have lived to be a ripe old age. They didn't know very much about surgery back then. That was a very sad time in our lives.
