"Dr. J. H.Tucker The following from Bro Onderdonk announces the death of one of the veterans of Texas Methodism. He doubtless reaps a rich reward. After toil and pain in the Master's service he finds his long sought rest: Dr.J.H.Tucker, a superannuate of the West Texas Conference, died in peace Friday morning September 3, at 8:20. He was one of the old veterans who helped to plant Methodism in the early days of Texas. I hope some of the older brethren will write a suitable memoir. F.S.Onderdonk Laredo,Texas"
