"DEAD ENGINEER AN OLD TIMER
H. H. KENDALL RAN FIRST TRAIN INTO BROWNSVILLE - BEEN WITH THIS ROAD SINCE.

H. H. Kendall, the engineer killed as the result of the wreck Monday night, was
the engineer who operated the first standard gauge railroad train into
Brownsville. This was in 1904 at the completion of the St. Louis, Brownsville &
Mexico railroad, and he has been with this line since that time.

The body of Engineer Kendall was held in state at the Hinkley undertaking chapel
until this afternoon when it was removed to the train for shipment to his home
at Kingsville. He was 50 years old and is survived by his wife and five children.

The body was escorted from the Hinkley chapel to the station by the local
commandery of the Knights Templar, of which body the deceased was a member, having been affiliated with the Corsicana lodge."
