      PIONEER CITIZEN CLAIMED BY DEATH
      W. L. Edge, Former Brazos County Citizen Passes Away at Port Arthur
      News of the death of Captain W. L. Edge which occured at his home in Port Arthur last night, brought sadness to many friends in Bryan and Brazos County where he lived so long for he was held in the very highest esteem by all who knew him, and he was known to a very large majority of our people.
      Mr. Edge moved to Port Arthur about two years ago, which had been his home, and few people were aware that he was even sick, his sickness being only of short duration.
      Mr. Edge was born in Macon County, Georgia, about seventy years ago, and moved to Texas and Brazos County forty-eight years ago, locating in the Kurten section, which was then sparsely settled. During his residence there he served for a long time as justice of the peace and also county commissoner, and was an honorable, upright and useful citizen. Besides a wife, he is survived by eight children as follows:
      W. H. Edge, Monroe Edge, Mrs. Dr. W. G. Drummond, Mrs. Hubert Drummond, George Edge, Mrs. Tom Benbow, and Miss Della Edge and about sixteen grandchildren, besides a large circle of other near relations.
      The remains will arrive in Bryan tonight and will be carried to the home of his nephew, Mr. J. L. Edge. Funeral services will be held at old Tryon Baptist Church tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock, the funeral cortege leaving this city about 8:30.
      Mr. Edge joined the Baptist Church forty years ago, and had held fathfully to the tenets and teaching of the faith in this church. He was a kind, considerate, genial Christian gentleman of the old Southern type and it can be truly said that a "great man in Israel has fallen." To the bereaved wife and children the sympathy of the whole people is extended. May the God of Heaven bind up the broken hearts, and while we many not understand fully the mysteries of life who doeth all things well, we shall know some day fully His great mysteries when all are reunited in that better and brighter land just across the way, where sorrow shall enter no more into the joys of the happy reunion. Peace to the ashes of the good man.
