SOMMERVILLE, Robert

Robt Sommerville, a notice of whose death appeared in these columns three weeks ago, was a native of Hardy Co, W. Va., the son of the late Alexander and Jemima VanMeter Sommerville, born November 1862, the seventh of a family of nine children. About 1889, the family moved from the "Sommerville Place" four miles south of Moorefield, to Texas. Robert accompanied them. He never married and at the time of his last illness he was living on his ranch near Pettes, Bee Co, Tex. Stricken with ptomaine poison, he was taken to the hospital at San Antonio; his condition apparently improved, he was removed to the home of his sisters in that city, where he died December 7, 1911, ten days after the first attack. His remains were brought to Moorefield and on the evening of December 11, 1911, after a brief service at the grave, his body was laid to rest beside those of his father and mother and other members of the family, in the family plot in Olive cemetery. Letters from business associates and friends at Pettes bear testimony to his integrity and worth and the high esteem is which he was held by those who knew him best. He is survived by two sisters, misses Sally and Kate Sommerville, of San Antonio, Tex and two brothers, John of Laredo, Tex and Edward, who has recently returned to his old home and is now engaged in business here.
