1922 :: Death of Joe Bratcher

Joe Bratcher, colored, died in the home of his aunt, Melisa Sanders, Monday night and was buried here Wednesday. Deceased was in the faithful employ of Mayor H.C. Meyer for many years, continuing in his service up to the time he was stricken with the malady that eventually caused his death. Joe belonged to a sturdy pioneer generation whose parents are fast becoming thinner and fewer. Rockdale Reporter, April 6, 1922
