Birth: Jul. 16, 1850
Death: Apr. 1, 1918

This obit appeared in the Burnet Bulletin on April 2nd 1918


The entire community was deeply shocked Monday night when it was learned that Mrs. J.C. King was dead. Very few of our people even knew that she was ill. She was sick only three or four days. The body was interred Tuesday afternoon in the Mt. Zion Cemetery, seven miles east of Burnet. The funeral service was conducted by Elder Morgan Morgans, Christian minister, of which church decedent had been a consistant member for many years. A very large number of sorrowing relatives and friends were present to pay their last act of respect to the departed dead.

Deceased is survived by her husband, J. C. King, and eight children, as follows : Mrs. Lon Gotcher of Falfurrias, Watkins King of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Tecumseh King of El Paso, Mrs. F.W. Jennings of Bertram, Mrs. Bob Reed of Bertram, Ben, Misses Clara and Grace of Burnet. At the time of her death Mrs. King was in her sixty-eighth year. She was married to J. C. King on the 11th day of February, 1874, in Louisiana, the state of her nativity. They moved to Burnet County in 1879, and a short time thereafter settled on the head of South Gabriel, in the Mt. Blanc neighborhood, where they resided until a few years ago, when they moved to Burnet, where they have since been living with the exception of a few years spent in South Texas.

Decedent possessed a mind of unusual brilliancy, which with a splendid education, made her one of the most interesting women it has ever been the good fortune of this writer to be associated with. She has many friends in every section of Burnet county who sincerely mourn her death. The heart-broken husband and children have the sympathy of all in this, the greatest hour of bereavement any of them have ever before been called upon to suffer.
