Thomas Judson Burkett was a rancher and trail driver in his early years on the trail to Dodge City, Kansas. He was a long time resident of Waelder, Gonzales Co, and a devout Christian according to descedants.
He and wife are buried in City Cemetery, Waelder.
He wrote the following during his last days in Holmes Hospital in Gonzales:
Gone to rest beyond the stormy seas To mingle with the blest on flowery beds of ease. This world is but a bubble, there is nothing here to woe. Hardships, toils and troubles wherever we may go. Do what we may, go where we will, we are never free from care. For at best this world is but a castle in the air. Weep not for me my dears, I am not dead, but only sleeping I was not yours alone, but God's who loved me best. He and wife are buried in City Cemetery, Waelder.
