      Steven Greer, Brazos Civil War Veteran

      Steven Greer, who departed this life on Sunday afternoon, December 30th, 1917, was a native of Brazos county, having been born on the north line of Rock Prairie on what is now known as the old Clapp place, December 1st, 1845. He was 72 years and one month of age at the time of his death. He was raised here and went to the war from this county in 1862 and served valiantly under the surrender. He returned here after the close of the war and took up the occupation of farming which he followed all the remainder of his life.

      He was married a few months before the close of the war while at home on a furlough to Miss Sarah Ann Martin who resided in Millican, then the principal town of the county. He and his wife made Brazos county their home from the day they were wed and reared their family here. Nine children were born to them, six boys and three girls. All the children are dead except three sons, all of whom are grown with families of their own. One son died in Austin about three weeks ago. He is also survived by his widow who will make her home with her sister, Mrs. T.J. Caywood of this city, spending part of the time with her sons.

      Steven Greer was a good man and a good neighbor. He was as kind hearted as a child and liberal to a fault. No man ever went to him for a favor that he did not grant if within his power. He was a member of the Free Baptist church.

      The funeral services were held on Monday afternoon and the remains were laid to rest in the old Simms burying ground near his home, in the presence of many of his life-long friends and neighbors.
