Honorable and Mrs. E. R. Misener Home
from Interesting Trip
Mrs. J. E. Sellers went over to Hico last Monday to meet
her father and mother, Hon. E. R. Misener and wife, who were en route home
from a long and interesting trip through the North and West. Mrs. Misener
left Hamilton some three months ago, and has spent most of the time
intervening with her daughter, Mrs. V. Reese in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and
with relatives of Mr. Misener in New York City. Mr. Misener went to join
her in Washington, D. C. six weeks ago. After a visit in the Capitol they
went to St. Thomas, Canada. Mr. Misner's old home, where he had not been
for fifty-five years. There is a prevailing drought in Canada this year,
and Mr. Misener said that his visit there was somewhat of a
disappointment. However, he found relatives and old friends of the Misener
family in that city, and went to the graves of his fore-parents. Leaving
there they proceeded to Beloit, Wisconsin, the native town of Mr. Misener.
Canton, South Dakota, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Niagara Falls, and points
in Illinois, Maryland, Indiana, Iowa, New York, Elizabeth, New Jersey and
other states were included in their long itinerary. They returned by way
of Denver, Colorado, through New Mexico to El Paso, where they visited in
the home of their daughter, Mrs. E. J. Massman. Mr. Misener says that
after all the world they have seen they came back to Hamilton perfectly
satisfied to remain here. In fact, Mr. Misener said that Hamilton county
came nearer being the garden spot of the world than any place they found.
He came back, he said, realizing more than ever before the vast
possibilities of development in this section of Texas, which appears to
him as almost a frontier in its newness and undeveloped state. A host of
friends welcome home these wanderers, and all are please that they came
back with the old affection for Hamilton in their hearts grown stronger.
(One reason they made the trip. During the WWI, Edwin
was investigated because his German name. He made the trip to get proof
that his forefathers had been here a long time.)
Hamilton Herald - 1922
Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Misener and daughter, Mrs. J. E.
Sellers, Jr., with her young son, Edwin Sellers, left Thursday morning for
Dallas, the future home of Mr. and Mrs. Misener. After a short sojourn in
Dallas Mrs Sellers and Edwin will go to Del Rio, Texas, to join Mr.
Sellers and reside. They will build a nice new home in the border city and
will, therefore be permanently located there. The loss of this prominent
family from Hamilton will long be felt, and the regret in the hearts of
our people is tinged with sorrow because of their intimate association
with us here in the little home town so long as friends. With their going
another pioneer family quits Hamilton County. Mr. Misener has for years
been prominently identified with the politics and lodge affairs of this
section of the state. He is past Grand Master in Texas of the I. O. O. F.
and is widely known in this connection. As a business man he has made a
notable success and has helped put Hamilton on the map in many ways. We
shall miss them, but we all like them and are hoping that they may find
the new happiness and satisfaction they are expecting to gain by moving to
Dallas. Mr. Misener retains considerable of his Hamilton county property
and will be visiting here occasionally.

other states in the Sovereign Grand Lodge, W. O. W., of the World.
Before returning home Mr. Misener will visit his daughter,
Mrs. V. Reese, and husband, in New York, and will, also go over into
