Hamilton County News—May 9, 1941

Mrs. William E. Horne, who before her marriage to the late Mr. Horne, was Julia Montgomery Black, one of the most fascinatingly interesting women residents of Hamilton County. She had lived in the home on Blue Ridge for twenty-three years; loved and respected universally. Julia Black was orphaned at a very tender age by the death of her mother. She became a member of the family of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Joel B. Crain in McLennan County, Texas, and grew to a beautiful and charming young womanhood under their guidance. Mr. Crain was one of the immortal heroes in the Battle of San Jacinto, and his name is engraven on the tablet at San Jacinto Monument on the site of the battlefield near Houston.

Mrs. Horne had been an invalid for seven months, during which time she was given solicitous care by her children and grandchildren as a member of the households of her daughter, Mrs. Emmett Hill and family in Hamilton; and of her son, E. D. Horne and wife and young daughter, Josephine, who reside on the old Blue Ridge homeplace. She stoically refused to submit in a complaining manner to the pain and limitation of illness, but cheered her anxious loved ones by her sweet patience and hopeful attitude toward the possibilities for recovery. She passed to her eternal rest at the old home in the late hours of May 1, going to sleep as if only for a night only with a refreshed awakening in the morning.

A grandeur of sincerity characterized the funeral service honoring the memory of Mrs. Horne and comforting the mourning loved ones and sorrowing friends. The last rites were held at First Baptist Church on Friday afternoon, May 3, at 3:00 o'clock with the pastor, Rev. T. Lynn Stewart in charge, and Eld. Len Dalton, a long-time friend of the family delivering the funeral oration. A great company of people gathered at the sacred edifice to pay a last tribute to this woman of noble life and Christian death.

Interment was made in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery with grandsons of Mrs. Horne bearing her bier to the grave, where she rests beside her husband, who preceded her in death on June 24, 1934. The floral offering of magnificent magnitude was composed of flowers rare and of heavenly beauty and fragrance.
