Shelby county and East Tex-
as today mourns the loss of one
of her best beloved citizens—
the Hon. J. T. Bogard of this
city. Mr. Bogard died Thurs-
day morning at one o’clock at
his home in this "ity following
cn illness of sometime. Mem-
bers of the Tamil'’ and loved
ones were at his bedside when
the end came.

ducted at the family residence

C. Anderson of Madisonville, a
step-son of the deceased, will
conduct the service. Interment
will be made in the New Pros-
pect cemetery.
Mr. Bogard was 81 years,
three months and nine days old
atthetimeof his death. He
was bom near Beans Vista in
this county. He was a son of
Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Bogard,
and after his marriage settled
on the old homestead at Beuna
Vista. He conveyed the land
en which the New Prospect
church and cemetery are now
located, and with the assist-
ance of his neighbors con-
structed the first church at New
Prospect, the building at that
time being of pine logB. He re-
sided in that community until
1893 when he moved to Timp-
son where he has since made
his home.
Mr. Bogard’s first marriage
was to Miss Mary Rains on Oc-
tober 19th., 1873. To that
union three children were born
—Miss Annie Bogard, Mrs.

two brothers—C. F. BogaTd,
Clarendon; C. E. Bogard, Timp-
son ; thirty grandchildren and
hundreds of friends throughout
Shelby county and East Texas.
The theory of Mr. Bogard’s
life was plain living and high
thinking. He was a member of
the Methodist church, a de-
voted Christian ahd he lived his
religion in the house of wor-
ship, in his home, among his
friends and in every line of en-
deavor. He was honest and
held Ids feilowman in the high-
est esteem. He never wavered
from what he believed 'was
right, and his name will go
down in history as an outstand-
ing leader in every undertaking
for the betterment and welfare
cf his State and community.
Mr. Bogard was active in
politics for a number of years.
He was first appointed Com-
missioner in 1896, and served
the county in this capacity sev-
eral years, being elected with
large majorities to thfi office.
He served this county as a
