Obituary of David M. Hooks, Goldwaithe, Texas.

David M. Hooks was born in Alabama September 15, 1838; and died September 8, 1914, at Goldwaithe, Tex., having nearly reached his seventy-sixth year. During the war Comrade Hooks served in Company E, 56th Alabama Cavalry, under Col. James Clanton, and he made a brave and faithful soldier. After the war he went to Texas and was County Surveyor of Hamilton and Mills Counties for several years. Removing to Mills County, he became a member of Jeff Davis Camp, U. C. V., of Goldwaithe, and by resolutions his comrades of the Camp have expressed their sense of loss in the death of this "good and faithful friend and comrade, whose life and services were worthy of emulation. He was a pure-hearted Christian and officer in the Presbyterian Church."

[Committee: J. W. Allen, J. D. Calaway, A. C. Decker.]
