Humphrey, Thomas Burr

At the stroke of twelve on Thursday, September 11, 1919, the tired heart of Judge Thomas Burr Humphrey, former County Judge of Hemphill County, TX, ceased to beat. With the cessation of work on the part of this mechanical portion of the body which is designed to provide activity in the human form, there passes from the affairs of this life and of this community one whose activities have been a blessing and a benediction to Hemphill county and all those who have come within the scope of Judge Humphrey's influence and personality. Born in obscurity in Cumberland County, KY, to John and Susanah Humphrey, on December 17, 1846, he grew to manhood subservient and obedient to his parents and then launched upon a life that was destined to be eventful and that should encompass extended interests and touch the lives of a multitude. He sought and obtained a liberal education and was ever an advocate of advanced intellect, being always more desirous of knowledge than of wealth. In young manhood, he was united in marriage to Miss Nannie Triplett and to this union was born nine children, five daughters and four sons all of whom, together with the widowed mother survive. With his family he came to Texas in the fall of 1883 and spent time time at Mobeetie (Fort Elliott) in Wheeler County. It was probable early in the year 1185 that he moved to Hemphill County where he was destined to perform a valuable and lasting work. In those early days in the history of this county a home was established on the Washita River near where the Gageby Creek enters that stream. The signs of the home still exist and a draw coming from the north bears the Humphrey name. In the vicinity also Judge Humphrey taught the first school in Hemphill County and organized the first Sunday School within Hemphill County. Early in life he adopted the Christian faith and espoused the belief which is known as the Christian Church and lived a quiet and devoted Christian life. He many years ago sought and obtained entrance into and membership in the Masonic Lodge at this place and is known and loved in fraternal circles for his strict adherence to the sacred teachings of that order. For eight years T. B. Humphrey was County Judge and ex officio county superintendent of Hemphill County s Public School System and is will remember that he brought joy and delight to the hearts of the school children as he went from place to place on his tours of inspection, and what pride he felt in the development as a splendid county system began to grow, from that little school that he first taught in the county. Notwithstanding the responsibility of a large family and hes interest and attention to things of a public nature this man prospered in things material and for many years he has lived in retirement, in ease and in comfort. His home was always a meeting place with pleasure and good fellowship and best influences. The children were all present at the last sad rites that were said over the boy in Heneritta where interment was made. They are Mrs. Frank Cole of Hamburg, OK. E.S., Virgil, and John of this city, who are engaged in commercial pursuits; the Misses Georgia and Lil of Wichita Falls. Mrs. Karsetter of Henreitta, Leslie, a prominent attorney in Wichita Falls; and Mis Ruth of Dallas. These together with the widowed mother are left to mourn the departure of a father who was loving and a husband who was devoted and kind. These are the facts about a man who in his life formed the very foundation stone upon which the affairs of out county were placed; who wiht the stroke upon twelve as the hour hand had described one complete revolution upon the dial surrendered his soul to God who gave it and became still and motionless in the embrace of death, leaving us the wealth of his memory and delegating to us all future responsibilities. And yet there are a thousand facts connected with this career that have not and could not be mentioned, nor is it necessary that they should except to emulate the splendid example that he has bequeathed to us. To have lived a life crowned with financial success, intelectual attainment, public preformance; to have reared a family who are distinguished for uprightness, industry and ability; and to have been permitted in the twilight to review a life so full of usefulness and achievement and then in the fullness of years to have a peaceful passage into that Upper and Better Kingdom, certainly placed the stamp of God's approval on a noble man. Judge Thomas Burr Humphrey was 72 years, 8 months and 24 days old when the angel came to smile away his immortal spirit, having passed the Biblical span of three score and ten. We mourn wtih his family in this sad hour, because humanity cannot sever these ties with sorrow, but there is a consolation in his life that leads us to the perfect assurance that a Heavenly career has begun where sorrow and sadness and separation will be no more.
