- Death of Mrs. Anna George -
This lady died at the residence of her son-in-law, Major William G. Randall, in Dallas, March 19, 1884. One who has known her Texas life of 44 years, feels impelled, however briefly, to pay tribute to her memory as of one whose life was a daily illustration of those graces found only in refined, charitable and pure womanhood.
Mrs. George, nee Anna Bronson, was born and reared in Cleveland, Ohio; married Thomas McConnell, and in the beginning of 1840 came with her husband from Portsmouth, in that state, to Victoria, Texas. A few months later their new home was assailed and numerous persons killed by the great Indian raid of that season. This was only twenty miles from the scene of Fannin's surrender in 1836, and it may be mentioned that she died on the anniversary of that lamentable episode in our history. Following the burning of Linville by the Indians, Mr. McConnell became proprietor of the site and founder of Lavaca, its successor. He died in 1844, an honored member of the Texas Congress, leaving two little daughters, Virginia A., now the widow of James E. Randall, deceased, and Eliza A., wife of William G. Randall, all now of this city. Some years later Mrs. McConnell married Mr. Wiley George, long since deceased, leaving an only son. For over forty years she resided in the neighboring towns of Victoria and Lavaca, until her recent residence with her children here in Dallas.
