The San Antonio Express publishes an obituary for Robert W. Whitworth, a Boerne resident who passed away three days earlier (right). Mr. Whitworth was a veteran of the U.S. war with Mexico and a member of the Mormon Battalion, who marched from Iowa to California. He also served in the 20th Texas Infantry C.S.A. during the Civil War. Mr. Whitworth is the only member of the Mormon Battalion buried in Texas.
