14 Dec 1909
Mr. J. A. TAYLOR Dead
Mr. J. A. TAYLOR, one of Irving's staunch and highly respected citizens, passed away Monday morning.  Irving citizens paid personal tribute of respect at the sick bedside, at the funeral and at the grave.  Index yields to the following beautiful tribute in memory.
On Monday morning, Aug 9, as Aurora's light was heralding a new sun, while the inhabitants of our little town and countryside were just beginning to stir with the life of a new day, and our first thoughts on waking reverted to the home of a loved citizen, Brother J. A. TAYLOR, expectant yet fearing, surprise was evident nowhere, that the Death Angel had brought the dread summons that the kind and affectionate husband, the loving father in that house, was wanted in Heaven; that the Father had said, It is enough, His sufferings must cease, his joys must begin, His home is trinity.
For 22 days he had suffered with a complication of diseases.  His health had been failing for many months - and when at 4:55 o'clock the end came, while the blow to his family, relatives and friends, was so hard, expected though it was, there is the sweet consoling thought that our loss is his eternal gain.
None who knew Brother TAYLOR in the latter portion of his life can doubt his Christian character.  He professed faith in Christ and was baptized fifteen years ago in Kaufman county.  He loved to talk of religion, of his Heavenly Father, while his bible was his constant companion.
He was born Jan. 7, 18566 and his early boyhood was spent in Kentucky and in Rutherford county, Tennessee, near the battlescarred Murpheesboro.  He came to Texas in his middle teens and his father purchased the place near Sowers on which John LANOTTE now lives, familiarly known as the old TAYLOR place, and though he  has lived a few of the intervening years in Wise and Kaufman counties, the greater portion of his life was spent here, in what is known as the Forks of the River.
His magnetic ways and generous heart, won for him an innumerable host of friends, and every community that he entered welcomed him as sincerely as a preceding one regretted losing him, and the beautiful hospitable, friendly little town of Irving mourns its loss of him while it knows his place can never be filled.
His dear, good, heart broken wife, Mrs. Tryphena TAYLOR, and four sons, Willie, married and living at Grand Prairie, Tom, Grider, and Little Grady, one sister, Mrs. Anna POLLARD, near Grand Prairie, three brothers, Ben TAYLOR of Irving, Will of Colorado City and Booker of Iowa Park, survive him, while he has joined his parents, two sisters, his brother Lee TAYLOR, and a little daughter Lula, in the Beautiful City of Gold.
His family, his sister and brothers were with him in his illness, but a few days before he died Will and Booker were compelled to return home on account of their families, while Ben and Mrs. POLLARD remained to aid in administering to his wants and smooth his pillow till his light went out.  His nephew, Brooks POLLARD and his neice, Mrs. Ida BLACK of Kaufman county, with her husband were also present during the last hour.
At 4 o'clock a large concourse of friends and relatives started with the loved remains to the Baptist tabernacle, where his loved pastor, Rev. Tom GREEN of Dallas, conducted the funeral services, after which the long procession wended its way to the Sowers cemetery where the remains were interred with Praetorian honors.
May his loved ones, who have been the burden of his prayers, strive to meet him where there is not parting and the many good friends endeavor to show by cheering words and kindly visits how much Sister TAYLOR is appreciated and thus lighten the burden of her sorrows, while they admonish his boys to consider that they have the option of again grasping that loved hand that beckons from the others shore.
