J.Z. Locklin -
J.Z. Locklin, or "Uncle Jim" as he is familiarly called, is probably the oldest settler on the San Gabriel river in Milam or Williamson counties, he having located on the banks of that stream a short distance below the Penn Camp Ground and about six miles north of Thorndale in November, 1845, and has since made that neighborhood his home. He was born in Walton County, GA., on January 27, 1842, and was hardly four years old when his parents moved to this country.
In July, 1861, "Uncle Jim" enlisted in Company D, Green's Brigade, 4th Texas Cavalry and served four years, most of the time in Texas. He took part in the battle at Galveston and a number of other minor engagements. His brigade was called east at one time but a portion of them were turned back before reaching the Mississippi river. He was mustered out at old Washington on the Brazos and returned to his home on the San Gabriel in the summer of 1865, and on the 31st of August of that year was married to Miss Sarah Gorda Barclay.
Mr. Locklin can relate many exciting incidents of the early days in this section when the Indian, buffalo and wild turkey roamed at will over the broad prairies which at that time were covered with tall waving grass and free from the mesquite and cactus.

Funeral Memorial Card:
In Loving Remembrance of
Born Jan. 27, 1840
Died Nov. 27, 1923
Age 83 years, 10 months
Gone But Not Forgotten.
A precious one from us has gone
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in one home
Which never can be filled.
God in His wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love had given,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.
