I have just finished transcribing a personal journal kept by my husband's grandfather, Henry Clements Burge, dating from 11-15-1915 to 09-26-1920 in the Jones and Fisher Counties, TX areas.
One of the references in the journal is as follows:
I took dinner at the Star Hotel yesterday.Ed Acker, and Jess Green and Jack Mabean were there also.There was a jolly good fellowship expressed at this occasion. At supper we had a leather drummer to enliven the meal.He told of a tight he got into on a muddy road this fall.He ran off of a little tin culvert and could not get his car back in the road.He went up on a nearby hill to see if he could see a light, but in vain.He then started back to his car and fell into a deep ditch among thorns.The way he told it; he made it humorous.
The Star Hotel was in either Rotan, Fisher Co., TX or Hamlin, Jones Co.,TX.
Hope this is of some use to someone in this family line.
