EFFERSON D A V I S
HAGLER is a native
Texan and son of a
T e x a s pioneer, his
father, David Smith i ~~
the State from Alabama in 1847,
accompanied by his mother, Sarah ] .I i
M. Hagler, who was a native of
Tennessee. Shortly after the birth r
of the son, whom he named for the ;
great leader of the South, in Montague
County in 1861, the father I
went to the front, commanding a ll
company in the long struggle. Mr.
Hagler has lived all the time in
Texas, much of his life before coming
to Fort Worth being spent at
Montague and Vernon. A frequent
visitor in Fort Worth on cattle business
in which he was extensively
engaged, he decided to move here
in order to give his sixteen children
the educational advantages of the
schools and colleges located here.
He accordingly entered into the land
and cattle brokerage business, in
which his wide acquaintance among
cattlemen has made him notoriously
successful. Since his marriage to
Miss Cora Willingham, sixteen children
have been born to them. His interest
in their welfare is the guiding
factor in his life, as instanced 'x ;
in his removal to the city to give
them educational advantages, and
their photographs are always seen
upon his desk, a constant reminder /
during the business affairs of the
day. A Democrat, he has never
aspired to public office. He is a
member of the Knights of Pythias,
the Odd Fellows, and the Elks. His
hobby is fine stock.
