  • The following appeared in in a Baptist periodical: On Sunday Sept. 15 we were called to Richards to hold burial services for our friend and brother, Dr. W. E. Rembert. Dr. Rembert was born in Ala. Dec. 4, 1840. Had he lived till his next birthday he would have reached the ripe age of 89 years. When the war between the States came on he went out with the Louisiana first Volunteers serving in Lee’s army thru-out the war. At the breaking out of the war he was a student in Tulane Medical College at New Orleans.
         In 1866 he married Miss Elizabeth Lewis at Mansfield, La. To them were born 8 children, 4 of whom are still living, namely, Mrs. Mae Lathan, Converse, La., W. E. Rembert, Jr., Camden, Ark., Mrs. Bertie Welch, Montgomery, and Mrs. Ettie Welch, Crockett, Texas.
         He came to Texas in 1892, locating at New Waverly, Texas, where his wife died in 1893. Leaving there he moved to Richards in 1894. In 1898 he married Miss Sallie Leonard; to them two children were born, both living, namely, Miss Inez Rembert, Richards, and Mrs. Roland Smith, Goose Creek. In 1918 he was again bereaved of his wife. The writer conducted her funeral.
         Dr. Rembert joined the Baptist church some 50 or 60 years ago. He was one of the charter members of Richards Church.
         Dr. Rembert did a world of charitable work in connection with his practice of medicine. He was a faithful church man. He took great delight in reading his Bible. He loved his Lord, his family and his friends. The writer will never forget when in 1910 he and his family were stricken with flu and the Dr., good friend and brother as he was, came and ministered to us.
         In addition to his church membership he was a faithful and loyal member of the Masonic Lodge. After the funeral the Masons took charge and in their beautiful and impressive way put the body to rest. 
         A number said it was the longest procession ever seen from as small a town as Richards. It no doubt expressed the very high esteem the kind Dr. and family were held by their friends. 
         The writer was assisted in the funeral service by Brother J. Welch, pastor of the Richards Baptist Church. 
         May the Lord bless the bereaved is the prayer of a friend. 
         -- His Former Pastor, N. R. Davis, Normangee, Texas.
