He was just a little guy when he died, shortly after his father Henry. Complications of the measles set in. His mother was Mary HAMBY Cardell, and his brothers and sister were: William Thomas, Myrtle P. Cardell Trammell, Walter and Charles Cardell. This family was from the Austin area and had moved to the Richland Springs area for Henry's health. Mary Hamby told about his and his father's death in her little journal. Probably in an unmarked grave.
