Louise Williams

Louise Williams, 93, of San Saba died Tuesday, July 31, 2018 in Brownwood following a year's struggle to regain her mobility from a broken hip.

She was born on March 7, 1925 in Graham, Texas. Her parents were Samuel D. Crow and Bana Mae (Simmons) Crow, and she spent much of her formative years during the Great Depression on Crow Mountain and Rock Creek in southern Young County with her older sister, Dorothy Mae, and younger brother, Joe Donald, on a place to which their grandfather, a founder of the Texas & Southwest Cattle Raisers Association, had returned after being an early Texas trail driver.

Donald D. Burnham

Don Burnham, age 91, of San Saba, Texas passed away surrounded by his family, in San Saba, Texas on Tuesday, August 7, 2018. Don was born on July 8, 1927 in Brownwood, Texas to Leslie D. Burnham and Myrtle (Lane.) Don was raised in San Saba County. As a young man of 17, he left high school to serve in the Navy during WWII. Upon returning from the service he finished his education. He then began farming and ranching until the drought forced him to take a job in an aircraft plant. But, when the first substantial rain finally came, Don returned to what he loved the most—working the land where he grew up. He married Martha Rae Owen in 1957 and continued this country way of life for over 60 years. They shared this legacy with their children and grandchildren who are now continuing a tradition spanning five generations. It’s only befitting that he be buried on the very land that sustained his life.
