Mr. J. B. PENDLETON Answers Final Summons Last Saturday
After an illness of ten days, or two weeks, initiated by decaying teeth, resulting in softening of the jaw bones and terminating in blood poison, Mr. J. B. PENDLETON passed away last Saturday morning, August 14th, 1915, at his home one mile north of Irving.
This brief biography:
Mr. PENDLETON was aged 69 years, was active and robust in physique, and his death was seemingly untimely and was unexpected by his family and his friends.  This writer has known him for the past eight years as a true man, citizen, and neighbor; and that is a large per cent of a well-spent life.
Mr. PENDLETON was a Woodman of the World, member of the Thurber Camp, and the Irving Camp took charge of the body and buried it with Woodman ritual.  The funeral procession left the home at 9:30 Sunday morning and the interment was in Sowers cemetery.  Rev. W. L. GREGORY spoke the funeral words and offered prayer at the grave.  Many friends assembled to pay the last tribute.
John Berry PENDLETON was born in Des Moines, Iowa, December 25, 1846.  At the age of four years he came with his parents to Texas and they located near Lancaster.  In early manhood he served one year with the Texas rangers, under Captain George SHANNON.  On May 17, 1866, he was married to Miss Mildred Octavia ABBOTT and they lived in Brown and Palo Pinto counties for 25 years.  The last 14 years of his life were spent in Dallas county and Irving was his home of the last eight years.  His life companion for near half a century survives him, though feeble in health.  Two orphan grandchildren, Johnny and Alma PENDLETON, were being cared for by the grandparents.
Three daughters also survived and were at the bedside when death came.  They are: Mrs. E. H. RHODES and Mrs. Tom HALL of Thurber, and Mrs. J. A. LEWIS of Fruitvale.  And these family members were also present at the funeral: Mr. E. H. RHODES, and daughter.  Miss Mary; Mr. Tom HALL and daughter and son, Miss Marion and Tom Jr., Mr. J. A. LEWIS and two children, Mildred and Hall?, Mrs. Hall BROWN and her husband, W. W. BROWN of Fort Worth; Mr. Jas. ABBOT of Italy, brother to Mrs. PENDLETON, and a family friend from Thurber, Mr. Elza MARRS.
To this sorrowing family group the writer joins the many friends in extending sincerest sympathy.
The Irving dairy farm home will be abandoned and Mrs. PENDLEGON and the two grand children will go to live with some of the daughters.  A friend's best wishers:  R. M. HUDSON.  Irving, August 17, 1915.

Judge J. C. ROBERTS Dies
Judge J. C. ROBERTS, aged 56 years, died at his home in Oak Cliff at 7 o'clock Tuesday evening, after an acute illness of three days.  But he had been in declining health for a year or longer.
The body was taken to the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. T. OWENS of Oak Cliff, from which place the funeral was held this (Thursday) morning, Rev. Harry T. MOORE, dean of St. Matthew's Cathedral, conducting the services.
The active pallbearers were Judge W. J. J. SMITH,  Judge J. E. COCKRELL, Robert B. ALLEN, M. D. GANE ? or GANO ?, Will HARRIS, and D. Frank CARDEN.  The honorary pallbearers were Judge Anson RAINEY, Judge Charles A. RASBURY, Judge J. M. TALBOT, Colonel W. L. CRAWFORD, Judge e. B. MUSE, Henry COKE, Judge Kenneth FOREE, Judge W. L. CRAWFORD Jr. Horace CHILTON, General M. M. CRANE, George WALLACE, and Curtis HANCOCK.
Judge ROBERTS was born in Limestone county, but had been a resident of Dallas for twenty-eight years, in the practice of law.  He served for a while as Judge of the Fourteenth District Court.  And when the Sixty-Eighth District Court was created, he was appointed as its first judge, and was elected by the people to succeed himself, at the election in 1910 - and served until the end of 1914.
In his judicial career Judge ROBERTS mad a most enviable record.  Of more than 4000 cases presided over and ruled on by him only 8 cases were ever reversed by the higher courts.  Judge ROBERTS was firm yet mild of manner, and won and held the confidence and esteem of lawyers, litigants, and of the people.
In the Irving area hosts of friends will sadly miss him from life's walk.
