The death of Mr. W. R. Joines brought quite a crowd to
our community--Messrs. Clyde and Guy Joines,
Theo. Kock and Willie Koch and families of
Beaumont, Mrs. Ruby Plant of El Campo; Messrs. Alexander,
Calvin, Otis, Tommy and George Joines; Mesdames Wingate and Wiles
and Joines and Edward Morrow, all of Houston
were here to attend the funeral.

This community was shocked last Thursday when it was
learned that Mr. W. R. Joines had passed away
suddenly at his home about 2 o'clock Thursday
morning. W. R. Joines came to this county in 1893, and has resided in
the Buhler settlement since that time. Besides his family he
enjoyed a wide circle of friends, all of whom
will mourn his passing.
W. R. Joines died March 18, 1937.
