      (Editor's note: This is from an obituary in the "Henderson Times" in 1910 and when the word (tear) is used, it means the copy is so worn that it is unreadable. Used for its narration of activities of early pioneers.) "Tuesday morning at ten o'clock at his old home six miles south of Henderson there passed from this life and the walks of men, one of the most unique characters this country has ever known, Absalom K. Van Sickle. His life has been a romance, a tragedy, a drama full of events and history. He was born November 10, 1817 in Nacogdoches County which was then a province of Spain. His father was German and his mother was of English descent, being from the family of the Hudson Bay Fur Company. His boyhood days were spent on the farm where and when the young life became (tear) thrilling stories (tear) struggles of Texas with the Indians, Mexicans and maurading bands of (tear) traders until he was involved in its history of daring (tear) exploits. He lived under the flag of Spain, Mexico, Republic of Texas, Confederacy and of the Union. He fought in Indian wars of Texas and in 1835 in the war for independence with Mexico. In 1846 he joined a company under Captain McCos (tear) Douglas and rode on horseback from Henderson to the Gulf of Mexico. He was in the Battle of Monterey, where his horse was killed under him, Buenavista (sic) and Mexico City, besides several intermediate skirmishes at other places. He was wounded in the battle of Monterey and lay on the field all night. "He served in the Indian war under Big Foot Wallace and was 2nd Lieutenant in the company. "In 1848, he went to California during the gold craze, from there to central America and Cuba. He returned to his home country in the fifties and settled on a farm near Henderson where he resided for more than fifty years . . . (tear) church for over a half a century. When the church was organized at Bethel 53 years ago, Mr. Van Sickle was one of the charter members and has remained with the organization all these years. He died in the Christian faith at the age of 93 years and four months. The funeral occurred at Bethel Wednesday morning. Judge W. Van Sickle of Alpine and Fulton of Marshall, his sons, arrived Tuesday afternoon to attend the funeral services." Written by Mary Lynn Hale Webb
