LOUIS SCHLINGER

Man Who Heard
Last Gunshot of
Civil War Dies

     Louis Schlinger, 86, of 1901 Pennsylvania, one of the pioneer retail grocers of Dallas, who, as a boy, heard what was said to have been the last shot fired in the War Between the States, while living in Brownsville, died Thursday.
     His father was a resident in Texas when it was a republic, but returned to Petersburg, Va., where Louis was born, May 20, 1855.
     Later, the family returned to Texas and to Brownsville. There, due to the fact that news traveled slowly, the last shot of the war was said to have been fired in a skirmish. He learned Spanish when a lad and spoke it fluently.
     Later, the family moved to Austin and Louis, before the turn of the century, opened a merchandise and grocery in Waxahachie. In 1900, he came to Dallas and opened a retail grocery here, which he operated until his retirement about twelve years ago.
     A long-time Mason, he was a member of Tannehill Lodge.
     Surviving are a son, Henry Schlinger, and four grandchildren.
     Funeral services will be held at Weiland's Funeral Church Friday at 4 p. m., with Rabbi Joseph Ginsberg officiating. Burial will be in Temple Emanu-El Cemetery.

Ford Funeral Shows
Reverence for Past

By D
OUGLAS HAWLEY

     Americans have high regard for their antecedents -- the founding fathers and those pioneers who have preceded present generations.
Dallas County, as evidenced by its Historical Society, its Pioneers Association, the Half Century Club and other organizations, also has due appreciation of those who have gone before.
     Were testimony lacking, it might have been in amble evidence at a funeral service recently. Scores of scions of the county's first families attended the last rites for the late Gus L. Ford, lineal descendant of the Webbs and Hughes. His interment took place in the Daniel family burying ground, located on the former farm property of another group of pioneering folk. The plot is now located at the end of Milton St., on Hillcrest Ave.
     Gus L. Ford was the son of Mr. and Mrs. G. L. (Dutch) Ford. She was Sophronia Webb, daughter of Isaac Webb, who came to the Farmers Branch district, of what is Dallas county, in 1842.
     After checking up on the promising land, he returned to his native Missouri. Then came John Cochran, a brother-in-law, in 1843, to be followed by Isaac Webb on his second and final trek in the same year.
     They were followed by the Hughes -- natives of Virginia, but coming to Texas from Murray County, Tennessee. There were seven sisters and a brother. With them, the pioneer Webb, Cochran, Hughes, Knight, Record, Williams, Bachman and Dennis families came into being.
     Mary Hughes was Mrs. Isaac Webb. Nancy Jane Hughes was Mrs. William Cochran. Sarah was Mrs. Tom Williams, whose husband taught the county's first school. Alice was Mrs. George Record; Strena Caroline, Mrs. Obadiah Knight; Margaret, Mrs. John Bachman; Letitia, Mrs. Levy Dennis. The brother's name was William. And, he was very well known, even to just a few years ago, as "Uncle Buck."
     Dallas county's first Methodist Church was organized in 1846 in the log-cabin home of Isaac Webb. Webb and William Cochran were among the first county officials after Dallas County was organized.
     In the Daniel burying ground, as Gus Ford was laid to rest, there was to be observed the graves of five generations, and also a stone for a family servant of pre-emancipation times. Close to that of her father, was the tiny grave of Margaret Ann Ford, who died in infancy.
