Association member Roger N. Conger of Waco is the editor
of a Masonic memorial history, A Century of Fraternity, Waco
Lodge No. 92, A. F. & A. M., Waco, Texas, 1852-1952. Not only
is the history of lodge activity well covered, but the biographical
section dealing with the Past Masters of the lodge will be of real
value for reference purposes. There are numbers of well chosen
illustrations throughout the volume.
The Fall, 1951, number of the Arkansas Historical Quarterly
contains an article edited by Orville W. Taylor entitled "Journal
of a Trip from Camden to Texas, 1849." The original journal
was kept by R. F. Kellam. In his travels in East Texas, Kellam
was in Rusk and Panola counties. He departed from Texas,
crossing the Louisiana-Texas line at Lick Skillet. Accompanying
the journal is a chart of travel expense which is a valuable
pioneer document in itself.
Through Dan Ferguson of Dallas, the Association has received
an account book kept by a San Augustine doctor in 1844. This
practitioner also dispensed drugs, and the entries in his ledger
are not separated. This account book is of particular interest
because it was the property of Colonel John S. (Rip) Ford and
is a fragmentary record of his practice of medicine in East Texas.
This interesting item has been placed in the Archives Collection
of the Eugene C. Barker Texas History Center.
Worth S. Ray, an outstanding genealogist and long-time mem-
ber of the Association, died on January 15, 1952, at his home in
Austin, where he had resided for more than thirty years.
Although his genealogical field of interest covered a much
greater area than Texas, he had often helped students doing re-
search in Texas history. He is the author of Down in the Cross
Timbers, Austin Colony Pioneers, and Tennessee Cousins as well
