Virginia Tennessee (Lassater) Bateman: Sunday morning Mrs. J. E. Bateman fell over a
foot stool at her home in this city and broke her hip and her death followed Monday morning. A
service was conducted over the body by Rev. L. T. Grumbles at the family home at 2 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon. Uncle Abi Stelzer also made a few remarks, being a very near friend. Interment
followed at Old Celina Cemetery. The attendance at the home and at grave was large considering
the inclement weather. Mrs. Bateman was one of the pioneer settlers of this community, having
resided here for the past forty-three years and she and her husband had their part in the
development of the community, which was then a grass-grown expanse, into what it is today. Mrs.
Bateman was a kind unselfish character and many are those grateful to her for kind deeds done.
She was born February 7, 1840 on the line of Virginia and Tennessee, which fact was responsible
for the name bestowed upon her - Virginia Tennessee. Her maiden name was Lassater. She became
a member of the Baptist Church at the age of 14 and united with the congregation here shortly after
coming into the community. To Mr. and Mrs. Bateman only one child was born, Samuel E.
Bateman, who has all his life been a citizen of Celina,Texas. Mrs. Bateman leaves two sisters, Mrs.
Martha Hollis of Sherman, Texas and Mrs. Lou Coley of Mt. Pleasant, Texas. The sympathy of all
good people goes out to the bereft husband and son. (The Celina Record, Celina,Texas, 1919)
Fannie M. Bledsoe: Mrs. Fannie Bledsoe, wife of A. I. Bledsoe, died Sunday morning,
May 6, 1917, at her home in the Bethel Community, six miles northeast of Celina. The body was
buried Monday afternoon at Cottage Hill Cemetery where a very large number of friends and
relatives assembled to pay their last respects to the memory of this good woman. The service was
conducted by Rev. Thorn of Waco, Texas. Mrs. Bledsoe leaves a husband and three children, the
eldest being about four years old and the youngest only a month or six weeks. She also leaves three
brothers and three sisters, residing in various parts of the state. This death leaves the husband with
three helpless children on his hands and as he lost about all he had some time ago in Haskell
County when a hailstorm laid waste to his crop he has a task that will be very trying upon him.
The sympathy of all good people goes out to him and his motherless children. (The Celina Record,
Celina, Texas, May 10, 1917)
Dr. Thomas G. Boorman: Three entries. (1) Dr. T. G. Boorman Dead: News was received
here Tuesday of the death of Dr. T. G. Boorman, which occurred at Terrell Monday night, where
he was undergoing treatment. The burial took place at Princeton Wednesday afternoon. Deceased
was 53 years old. He practiced his profession at Princeton, in this county for twenty two years. He
then moved to Celina and practiced medicine for four years, moving back to Princeton just before
the first of the present year. Dr. Boorman made friends rapidly and was as true to them, the Record
is informed, as the needle to the pole, evidence of which is found in the large number of Celina
people who learned of his death with genuine sorrow. Dr. Boorman was at the time of his death a
director in the Celina State Bank, and Cashier Button attended the funeral. In the death of Dr.
Boorman a wife and five children are deprived of a husband and father and the county a good
citizen. (The Celina Record, Celina, Texas, Thursday, September 13, 1918) (2) Funeral Notice:
