Wheeler. - Corsicana, Tex., Dec. 9 - Mayor L. T. Wheeler, one of
Corsicana's oldest citizens, died this afternoon at 2 o'clock at
his residence, following a long illness. He was a member of the
Corsicana bar before the Civil War and was for years a friend of
the late Senator Mills and was best man at the marriage of Mr.
Mills, and they remained warm friends to the day of the death of
that distinguished citizen some months ago. Major Wheeler was a
Confederate veteran and loved the South and her cause to the
moment of his death. He had been a Mason for fifty years.
Full name and dates from the Navarro
County Cemetery Records for Navarro County. ...Dana
I believe the obituary should read "Major L.
T. Wheeler", rather than "Mayor L. T. Wheeler" Any
additional information is appreciated ...elw
