|Before daily newspapers, funeral notices|
were printed by the local newspaper and
distributed throughout communities.
This funeral notice for Hollon Bryan Latta
was found in the family bible that once
belonged to Terrell and Harriet Bryan.
I found the below obituaries and notices while searching newspapers yesterday. Hollon Span Bryan Latta was my grandfather's sister. She died in 1906 and I know very little about her. Span was also her grandmother's middle name (Elizabeth Span Regan, wife of Reddick Bryan) and a name used often in the Bryan/Regan family. I am not sure of the origin of the name "Span," but assume that it is the maiden name of a female ancestor.
|This tintype, labeled Aunt Holly,|
is in the bible that once belonged
to her parents, Terrell and
|Hollon Bryan Latta was|
buried in West End
Cemetery in Stephenville,
Erath County, Texas.
