Moses Townsend Funeral Services Held Tuesday

Lifelong Resident of Colorado County Passes away At Rock Island Home On Monday Morning.

Born at Weimar 67 years ago; this community was saddened last week by the death of one of its prominent citizens, Mr. Moses Townsend.

Moses Townsend was born near Weimar in 1874, and passed away at the family home Monday morning at 8:40 after an illness of several weeks. He was married to Miss Minnie Brownson, February 12, 1896 and to this union seven children were born and four of them, with the heart broken wife, survive. The children are, Mrs. Mammie Baker and Harry Townsend of Rock Island, Howard Townsend of Corpus Christi and Archie Townsend of Columbus. One brother, Woodie Townsend of El Campo and eight grandchildren and one great grand daughter with hosts of friends are left to mourn his passing.

Mr. Townsend had spent all of his life in Colorado County having been a resident of Rock Island since 1910. He was very active in church affairs, having been a steward and trustee of the Methodist Church for a number of years and was always interested in every thing that was for the benefit and up building of the community. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Veach of the Methodist Church at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon and burial was in Myrtle Cemetery. The floral offerings were many and very beautiful. The sympathy of many friends throughout this section is extended to the bereaved family. Eagle Lake Headlight, May 30, 1941[1]
