Samuel Taylor "Kid" Leath
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 10, 1847
Alabama, USA
Death: Aug. 31, 1922
Olney
Young County
Texas, USA

S.T. Leath, one of the pioneer citizens of Olney died at the family home in the northeast part of the city. The Masons were in charge of his burial since he was a member.

A short funeral services were conducted at the First Christian Church with Rev. Chase of Newcstle officiating.

Mr. Leath had been quite ill for several months, and his death was not unexpected, however it came as a shock to his family and friends, who have our deepest sympathy at this time.

S.T. Leath "Kid" as he was familiarly called by the citizens of Olney came to Olney before the town was incorporated and had been identified as a citizen of Olney ever since. He was a Mason and shortly before his death, he professed religion, but owing to this physical condition, he never united with any church, but was baptized only two Sundays ago.

Survivors: his wife; several grown up and married children to mourn his death.

Member of Olney Masonic Lodge, No. 790 A.F. & A.M.
