- Is this Bruce Meador the son of William J. Meador ? ..elw
Correct, I believe Bruce Sr is the son of William J [Billy]
Meador who murdered his wife Mattie E Meador on December 23, 1905.
William J died a few weeks later [while in custody] and I cannot
find any death, obit, or cemetery site for William J. We believe the
county buried him in an unmarked grave, somewhere on county property
where inmates are buried.
I cannot identify who the parents are of William J Meador. I just
have R M Meador and S A Meador from a 1870 Navarro County Census.
Many people think this is Reason and Sarah Meador, however the data
does not add up. According to the 1870 Census, RM and SA had 7
children living in 1870, 5 girls [initials ME, MB, GB, PA, NE) and 2

JUDGE H. S. MELEAR DIED SUDDENLY AT CITY HALL TUESDAY
READING NEWSPAPER IN POLICE HEADQUARTERS WHEN STRICKEN
H. S. Melear, 77, for almost twenty-three years Recorder of the
Corporation Court of the City of Corsicana, died of a heart attack while
reading a newspaper in police headquarters in the city hall about 7:30
He is survived by his widow, a son, Harold S. Melear of Longview, and a
brother, Robert H. Melear of Trinidad.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock from
the Third Avenue Presbyterian church with Rev. M. E. McPhaill, pastor
conducting the rites. Interment will be in Oakwood cemetery.
Judge Melear had arrived at the city hall for his daily duties at an
early hour, according to his custom, and after visiting the postoffice
for his mail, had returned to the main room of police headquarters on
the second floor of the city hall where he joked with various officials
over having turned off the water at his residence Monday night in
preparation for a cold wave and the thermometer had not reached the
freezing point. He began his daily perusal of a newspaper when R. A.
Mergenthaler, desk sergeant heard him gasp and saw the paper begin
slipping from his fingers. He was dead in a few minutes before medical
aid could reach him.
Native of Tennessee.
The deceased was a native of historic Lincoln county, Tennessee, and was
born on August 26, 1858. About ten years later he came to Texas and
settled with his parents in Navarro county, receiving his education from
In November 1885, the judge entered the teaching profession and for a
number of years, taught school at Kerens, later going to Blooming Grove.
He then became principal of the Corsicana High School, and was later
elected superintendent of the public school system, resigning that post
in 1902 to practice law. From 1906 to 1910, he was assistant prosecuting
attorney for Navarro county.
On the resignation of C. W. Taylor as recorder of the corporation court
on February 18, 1913, Judge Melear was selected to fill the unexpired
term until April that year, and has filed the place without interruption
since that time, almost a quarter of a century including the “oil boom”
and other strenuous times.
On October 30, 1889 he was married to Miss Artemesia Dobbs and two
children were born to them.
Taught Bible Class.
Judge Melear was a member of the Third Avenue Presbyterian church for
many years, and taught a men’s Bible class for a great portion of his
life, but he prided himself upon being able to see the points of view of
members of other churches as well as his own. He was a member of the
Navarro County Bar Association, a Mason, and an Odd Fellow.
A paternal interest was taken by the judge in his official duties and
usually a stern lecture, usually effective because of the Judge’s
knowledge of the offender and his family, accompanied the assessment of
a fine. He remembered his “customers” and frequently reminded them of
promises Listed H. S. Melear, Judge they had made never to appear before
him again for some offense.
Instead of establishing set hours for the court sessions, Judge Melear
was available all during the day, reachable by telephone at night if
needed, and even sat as a justice on Sunday if the case was meritorious.
It was one of his hobbies that he would not permit a man to enter a plea
of guilty just as a means of escaping further bother when charged with
some infraction of a city or state statute.
Respected by All.
His methods of conducting trials were unique and usually a crowded
courtroom of spectators greeted a heavy docket. His honest and integrity
were known and respected both by intimate friends and casual
acquaintances. Many a Corsicana citizen remembers with chagrin incidents
of the past in which they tried to appeal appeal to the judge’s
sentimentality to escape paying a fine. On numerous occasions they had
apparently escaped by discussing incidents in which the judge and some
member of their family figured in the past and had listened to some
sound paternal advice, only to have their newborn elation stopped as he
suggested officially “just leave a donation of $5 with my secretary to
make sure you remember what I have been telling you.”
In addition to his duties as a city official and magistrate, Judge
Melear served many citizens as legal counselor, aiding them with their
land problems. It was his special pleasure to aid some deserving citizen
who appealed to him for legal counsel when they were unable to secure an
attorney, often leaving with them the impression that he was aiding them
as a part of his official duties and therefore without fee.
He also held a high place in the respect of the city commissions for his
advice and counsel on legal problems that confronted them, and he
extended this aid to other city officials who encountered problems in
the pursuit of their duties.
Judge Melear was a typical “southern democrat” and took the affairs of
his city, county, state and nation seriously, reading carefully after
the daily developments and keeping a close touch on all political
affairs. He granted members of opposing parties their right to
contradictory beliefs, but indignantly opposed any effort to convert him
away from his chosen party principles.
His friendliness and constant courtesy won him many friends of all ages
in all walks of life, and he was never too busy to talk with them, share
his views on any subject, or merely pass the time of day. He was never
too busy to inquire into the welfare of a friend, and surprised many of
them by his interest.
As an illustration of the affection with which his co-workers in the
court regarded him, there were honest, unashamed tears in the eyes of
some of the members of the police department Tuesday morning when the
bell on top of the city call was tapped at 9 o’clock and they realized
again that “court” would not be in session again.
Active pallbearers will be Mayor, J. S. Murchison, C. L. Jester, A. B.
Douglas, Robert Daniel, Beauford H. Jester and J. E. Butler.
Honorary pallbearers will be members of the city commission and friends
of the family.
The funeral will be directed by the Sutherland McCammon Funeral Home.

several of those seeking the post.

RESOLUTION ON DEATH OF LATE CITY RECORDER UNANIMOUSLY ADOPTED
A. H. Willie, well-known Corsicana attorney, was selected to fill the
unexpired term of the late Judge H. S. Melear as recorder of the
Corporation Court at a recessed meeting of the City Commissioner at 5
o’clock Wednesday afternoon.
Mayor J. S. Murchison presided at the meeting with Commissioners R. C.
Curtis, John P. Garitty, and N. R. Garrett in attendance.
The name of A. H. Willie was presented by Commissioner Garrity and
seconded by Commissioner Garrett. By unanimous vote of the three
commissioners the nomination was approved.
In a discussion to the performance expected of the new official the
commissioners declared they wanted “as near the service rendered by
Judge Melear as possible.”
The following resolution on the death of Judge Melear was adopted
Whereas, Our beloved Judge of the Corporation Court, H. S. Melear
departed from this life on Tuesday, January 7, 1936, and vacated the
bench which he had so faithfully filled for nearly twenty-three years,
Be It Resolved by the City Commission of the City of Corsicana that the
following be spread upon the minutes of the City Commission, furnished
members of Judge Melear’s family and published in the Corsicana Daily
Judge Melear had gleaned a vast and rich experience from almost a
lifetime of public service, which included teaching in the public
schools of Kerens, Blooming Grove, and Corsicana, having been principal
of the high school and superintendent of the entire system in Corsicana.
Taking up the practice of law in 1902, he was assistant county attorney
of Navarro county from 1906 to 1910. He served as judge of the
Corporation Court of Corsicana from February 18, 1913 until his death.
Judge Melear was unswervingly faithful to the trust placed in him as a
public official. Yet the fearlessness with which he meted out justice to
all was mellowed and sweetened by his understanding of, his kindness
toward and his love for his fellowman. His firmness, his anecdotes and
his wit, his devotion to duty, will always remain fresh in the memory of
those associated with him in the city government and of the multitude of
others who knew him. His passing causes our deep and sincere regret.
