News has been received here of the death at Dallas of E.L. Antony, a former Rockdalian.
Judge Antony spent his young manhood here, where he subsequently married Miss Houghton.
His parents, Dr. and Mrs. Antony, came to Texas when the Judge was a youth, and settled in Cameron and Rockdale, where the Doctor engaged in the practice of his profession.
The son attended college, and has since won many honors.
Last summer he returned to his old stamping grounds, Cameron, but owing to ill health, left for Dallas in the early fall to be treated by specialists.
His mother, the last of her family, and a daughter survive him, and a cousin, Mrs. J.D. Hamilton, of this place. He was very popular here among the older inhabitants.
The State Press says of him:
Dallas, Texas, Jan. 16. -- Edwin Leroy Antony, at one time United States Congressman from the Waco-Corsicana district, died here today at the age of 61 years. . . .
