1920 :: Sam Houston's Daughter is Dead at Houston


A telegram received this morning by Rockdale relatives announces the death of Mrs. Nannie Morrow at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Davis E. Decker, in Houston, death occurring Wednesday night.

Mrs. Morrow was the daughter of General Sam Houston, and as such her death will be of interest to the whole of Texas. Her late husband was a first cousin of A.P. Perry Sr., of Rockdale, and Mr. Perry acted as "best man" at their wedding. She was about 75 years of age. The funeral will be held at Georgetown Friday at noon.

1917 :: Bats in City Hall


The city hall is being overhauled and the bat roosts which have so long made the place a nuisance are being destroyed and the cracks sealed up so that the bats may not again take over this valuable piece of public property. Carpenter Jim Copeland is at the helm, with Alderman O.K. Phillips supervising the work. The wainscoting in the auditorium was removed yesterday, and several bushels of bats were killed.
