An Old Christian Gone

On Monday, at his residence in Temple, Williamson Wynne, the father of Ab and Ed and the uncle of Bob and ___ Wynne, departed this life, ripe in years and experience. He had passed the 85th milepost and had lived a consistent member of the Methodist church 63 years of the time. He was married over 50 years ago and came to Texas more than 40 years ago. He had been a citizen of Temple about 4 years, but long enough to form some warm friendships and leave the balm of Christian influence as a healing to those who are following after him. The troubles and grief if his friends were always a greater burthen to him than his own, as for them he was constantly seeking to make life cherry. He left two sons and three daughters together with his aged and devoted wife to mourn his loss, with these the entire community join in sympathy.
