Funeral services were held at 4 p.m. Friday for Thomas Jackson (Uncle Jack) McDaniel, 96, an old time Texas cowboy who participated in several trail drives during his boyhood

Services were held at the Hale Center Church of Christ. Rev. Joe Goforth, pastor of the Hale Center Primitive Baptist Church officiated at the rites. He was assisted by Malcolm Bowen, minister of the local Church of Christ.

Graveside rites were held at 3 p.m. Saturday in Bellevue Cemetery at Bellevue, Texas where he was buried.

Hale Center Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements here.

Uncle Jack died at 5 a.m. Thursday in Sloan's Convalescent Home, Lubbock. He had been in ill health for two years.

Born during the Reconstruction Period just three years after the end of the Civil War, Uncle Jack grew up in a colorful era in the history of Texas while the state was recovering from the bloody conflict between the north and south. Most of the state was still considered part of the wild west while he was growing up, and he encountered many exciting experiences during his boyhood and early manhood.

While he was a young boy he participated in his first trail drive. While still a teenager he trailed herds of cattle on several famous Texas trails. He also worked on several ranches including the Pitchfork Ranch. In an interview several years before his death, he recalled riding in several stampedes.

He was a crack shot with a rifle and once downed a Mountain Lion invading his hideout in a cave. While he was living in Central Texas, a would be gunman who attempted to bluff him, backed down before his steel gaze. Several years ago, he still had the well-worn rifle he carried when he was a cowboy.

He was born July 2, 1868 in Travis County, Texas. (Should have been Lavaca County) He moved to Hale Center from Bowie in 1946 and lived alone in his cottage here for several years before ill health finally disabled him.

Survivors include a son, D.C. McDaniel, Seagraves; two daughters, Mrs. Valerie Perbost, Fullerton, Calif., and Mrs. Ruby Moody, Hale Center; two sisters, Mrs. Frances Anderson, Frederick, Okla., and Mrs. Dollie Garcia, California; 11 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren.

Grandsons served as pallbearers.

The picture of Uncle Jack was in my Grandmothers box of pictures. I took the picture of his double headstone.

Uncle Jack---I remember you so well. The thing that stands out in my mind the most was when you were coming to Frederick in your Model "T", grandmother would pack me a lunch and something to drink and I would go to the road and sit on the bridge over the tin horn and wait for you. I would see you coming and I would be so excited that I could not wait for you to turn into the drive. You would pick me up and dance around the car two or three times then put me in the car and let me "drive" on up to the house. So many good memories. I want you to know I love and miss you very, very much.
