Comrade Nash was a man of noble impulses and so courageous that he was
apparently indifferent to his own safety, but was always interested in the welfare of
his comrades, and whatever he possessed was as freely theirs as his own.
Comrade Nash died suddenly at his home in Kaufman, Tex., March 26, 1912, at
the age of seventy-one years. He had accumulated considerable property, and was
ever liberal in distributing to those in need. Two sons and a daughter survive him, W.
T. and J. A. Nash and Mrs. James Young. Mr. Young is a member of Congress from
Texas. The descendants of this noble man are of the same material, and their lives
daily exemplify that truth.

.. At his home, in Dallas County, near Wheatland,
Tex., Thomas Uhl died on February 15, 1916. He
9', was born in Allegany County, Md., February 24,
1840, and thus lacked but a few days of having
completed his seventy-sixth year. He was left an
;"':. orphan at the age of six years and went to Texas
in 1858 with a herd of sheep. Enlisting in the
: Confederate army in September, 1861, as a
" member of Company F, 6th Texas Cavalry, Sul
Ross's regiment, he served with his command
until the close of the war. His comrades honored
him many years with the with the position of
President of the Ross Brigade Association. When it
was consolidated with Granbury's and Ector's
Brigades at Ennis last August, he was elected
First Vice President of the new organization. He
was a recognized leader in all the annual
meetings. Comrade Uhl married Miss Emily
Branson in 1867; and of their three children, a son
survives, with the mother.
He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. At his burial twenty-
six Confederate veterans acted as honorary pallbearers. In his death Dallas County
has lost one of its oldest and most highly honored citizens and his family a devoted
husband and father; his comrades, one whom they will sadly miss.
