Pullman Sleeping Cars between St. Louis, El
Paso and California points, has revolutionized the
Government mail service between the East, North
and the Great Southwest by placing Texas in
closer communication with the business interests of
the far North and East by from eight to fifteen
hours. A visit to the immense train sheds of the
Union Station, St. Louis, during the morning or
evening will disclose as fine equipped trains as can
be found anywhere, well filled with passengers to
or from Texas, which in itself is a commendation
of the Iron Mountain Route's claim as a superior
line, whose motto is " Texas to the World. "






The Hon. John P. Kelsey is a natiye of the
Empire State, having been born in the now city of
Poughkeepsie, Duchess County, N. Y., January 11,
1818. His father, James Kelsey, was a master-
mechanic and an architect and builder, and also
perfected himself as a general carpenter, joiner
and ship- carpenter. He married Rachel Dubois.
They reared a family of ten children, only the
youngest of whom was a daughter.

John Peter Kelsey, of whom we here write, was
the fourth born of nine sons and, like his elder and
younger brothers, learned his father's trade and
became a master-mechanic. Our subject was an
ambitious and restless youth of twenty years when
he left the parental roof, and was possessed more
or less of the spirit of adventure and a burning
desire to see and " get on " in the world. Accord-
ingly, in January, 1838, he packed his tools, bid
adieu to home and friends, and went to Bingham-
ton, in Broome County, N. Y., where he worked for
five months at his trade. Later he pursued his
trade in Brooklyn, New York City, and Charles-
ton, S. C. In 1839 he came to Texas as mas-
ter-mechanic under contract with Messrs. A. H.
Southwick & Bros., of New York, who were en
route for Galveston, which our subject reached in
December of that year, with a cargo of building
material and supplies. He remained in Galveston
about eight months, in the meantime engaging in
speculation and merchandising. In 1840 he went
to Corpus Christi with a stock of arms, ammunition
and supplies, which he, in company with the late
and well-known Paul Bremond, had purchased with
a view to selling and delivering to General Canales.

The contemplated sale and delivery was success-
fully accomplished, and they afterwards left Cor-
pus Christi with the revolutionary party, which
consisted of about 120 Texas mounted volunteers,
and 160 mounted Mexican renegades. The whole
affair, as a revolutionary movement, proved a roar-
ing farce and a clever subtif uge to cross into Mexico
a lot of merchandise and munitions free of duty, as
no sooner had Canales reached Mexico than he
went through the form of a surrender to the author-
ities at Camargo and joined in a celebration of the

The Texas contingent was sent by a different and
longer route to Mexico than that taken by the Mexi-
cans themselves and upon their arrival some days
later, learned to their dismay and chagrin of the
clever practical joke of which they had been
made the victim. They, of course, having scanty
supplies and little ammunition, disbanded, some
returning to Corpus Christi. The field officers and
merchants, upon invitation of the Mexican author-

ities, went immediately to Camargo, ostensibly to
receive pay for their trouble. Our subject accom-
panied them, but having no faith in the promises of
the Mexicans to pay, he promptly sought and found
employment at his trade, making the favorable ac-
quaintance of Don Mateas Ramirez, a wealthy and
influential Spanish gentleman, receiving from him
profitable employment and many social and bus-
iness courtesies. Through this distinguished friend
he made the acquaintance also of Gen. Arista,
who soon made a transfer of bis troops from Cam-
argo to Matamoros and cordially invited our
subject to accompany- them, which invitation he
accepted, and at Matamoros, with other Texian
comrades, embarked, via Brazos Santiago, on the
schooner Watchman for New Orleans, in March,
1841, and from that city returned to Galveston,
during the same month. There he met a brother
and others of the family, who had come to Texas
in the meantime. "With money advanced by this
brother, Mr. Kelsey purchased an assorted stock
of merchandise and sailed again for Corpus Christi,
up to that time, however, known as Aubury and
Kinney Ranche. There Mr. Kelsey commenced
selling goods in a canvas tent near the beach,
finally replacing it with a frame biiilding about
twenty feet square, in which he continued to do
business until September, 1842. Then, owing to
the extremely unsettled condition of affairs on the
frontier of Texas, trade had so far declined as to
make his stay unprofitable and he migrated once
more to the city of New Orleans. It is of interest
here to state that while located on Corpus Christi
bay, Mr. Kelsey ordered his not inconsiderable
mail addressed to Corpus Christi, there being no
land point on the maps indicating as to where he
was located. The mail coming by vessels and
schooners, he was therefore easily located by them
and his mail faithfully delivered. It is from this
fact and incident that the present promising city
of Corpus Christi derived its name.

In New Orleans, Mr. Kelsey again resumed work
at his trade, opening a house and ship-carpenter-
ing shop in Tehopitoulas street. This move was
not profitable and he, after making a business trip
to New York, returned to New Orleans, purchased
another stock of goods, and December 1st, 1843,
found him once more in business at his old store at
Corpus Christi. The following March he took in a
partner, one Richard H. Leach, and enlarged the
business, and up to May, 1845, had disposed of a
large quantity of goods at very satisfactory profits.

Our subject then left his partner with their Cor-
pus Christi store and, in company with a party of
fourteen Mexican traders, made a trip to Camargo,



Mexico. The journey was not made without
encounters with Indians in Mexico and incidents
characterized by more or less excitement and peril.
While at Camargo, he learned through the friendly
confidence of two of his former Mexican friends,
that a party of marauding Mexicans were there;
organizing to march upon Corpus Christi to massa-
cre the people and pillage and burn the town. Upon
learning of this contemplated raid upon the town,
Mr. Kelsey set out immediately for home and arrived
there in time to prepare the people for the recep-
tion of the party. Mr. Kelsey thereafter re-
mained at Corpus Christi until 1848, when he
moved to Rio Grande City and engaged in mer-
chandising. In 1856 he was elected Chief Justice
(now styled County Judge) of Starr County. In
1859 he was examined and admitted to practice
law in the courts of the State.

Judge Kelsey' s extensive and growing business
interests have ever precluded even a thought of
practicing law, even in the local courts, although
often pressed to do so. Up to 1860 he pursued the
even tenor of his occupation as merchant, attending
quietly also to his official duties at Rio Grande City.
Although a life-long and loyal Democrat, he had

been reared in the Jacksonian school of his party
and was unalterably opposed to the promulgated
doctrine of secession, upon the firm conviction that
it was wrong and would bring disaster and deso-
lation upon the country. He assumed, therefore, a
neutral attitude, and when Texas left the Union,
he left the State, transferring his mercantile opera-
tions to Camargo, Mexico, where he did an exten-
sive and profitable business until 1879, a period of
about eighteen years, and then returned to Rio
Grande City and resumed business at his old stand.

In 1882 he was again elected County Judge of
Starr County. He was re-elected in 1886 andl888.

Mr. Kelsey married, in October, 1847, Miss
Amanda Brooks, of Corpus Christi, and formerly
of Marietta, Ohio. She is a lady of many charming
qualities of mind and heart and has, for nearly half
a century, shared with him the pleasures of a
uniformly happy domestic life. They have one
daughter, Anna.

In what may be termed the evening of life, still in
full possession of all his faculties and blessed with
a vigorous constitution, he leads the quiet and
peaceful business life that becomes " the sage of
the Rio Grande Valley."



Judge D. R. Wingate, of Orange, Texas, was
born February 20th, 1819, in Darlington District,
South Carolina. His father, Robert P. Wingate,
was born in North Carolina, and his mother, Phar-
aba (Kelly) Wingate, in South Carolina. He was
educated in the public schools of Mississippi, walk-
ing three miies to the school house. He came to
Texas in 1845 with Judge Martin Fard and W. F.
Sparks, remained in the State about a month and
tlien returned to Mississippi. In April, 1852, he
returned to Texas, locating at Belgrade in Newton
County, where he remained until 1858, and then
moved to Sabine Pass, where he engaged in the
milling business and owned the largest mill in the
South. He remained at Sabine Pass until during
the war between the States, then removed to New-
ton County, where he remained until 1874, and then
went to Orange and again engaged in the lumber
business, building the first improved mill erected
at that place. Later, after suffering heavily from
two large fires, he formed and organized a stock
company and built the mill which he is now oper-
ating and which now has the lai'gest capacity of
any in the town. His first commercial ventures
were in stock-raising and milling in Louisiana in
1846. His success in life is to be attributed to
energy, strict integrity, capacity to plap and exe-
cute, and untiring attention to business. Starting
from the lowest rung, when mills were only sup-
plied with the old whip-saw, Mr. Wingate has
steadily made his way upward to his present posi-
tion as one of the leading mill-owners and financiers
in the South. He is a leading authority on all
matters pertaining to saw-milling, having been en-
gaged in the business during the greater part of
fifty years. Notwithstanding the fact that during

this time he has lost over half a million dollars by
fire, his perseverance and business abilities have
placed him again in the lead, and prosperity now
crowns his efforts. One of the noticeable features
of his career is that he has always taken advantage
of the opportunities that are incident to the open-
ing up and development of new countries. During
the late war, being too old for active service in the
field, he stayed at home and helped protect and
support the wives and children of Confederate
soldiers at the front.

At the beginning of the war he was appointed
Marshal of Southern Texas by Gen. Eber, and
intrusted with the duty of examining people coming
into and going out of the country. In 1863 he was
elected County Judge of Newton County, and
served as such until 1867, in that capacity render-
ing the country valuable service. He was consid-
ered one of the ablest County Judges in the State.
Hs is a Royal Arch Mason, and has been a member
of the fraternity for over fifty years.

Judge Wingate was married, September 19, 1839,
to Miss Caroline Morgan, of Mississippi, who died
February 4, 1890, at Orange, Texas. Seven chil-
dren were born to them, four of whom are living,
viz.: Mittie E., wife of Maj. B. H. Norsworthy,
of Orange ; Robert P. , a farmer living near Orange ;
W. J., a lawyer at Ballinger, Texas, and cashier
of the Ballinger National Bank ; and D. R. Win-
gate, Jr., a lumberman, at Uvalde, Texas. Judge
Wingate owns a large rice farm about six miles
from Orange, where he spends a part of his time
in recuperating his health. He is as supple as
many men of forty or fifty years of age, his mind
being as clear and vigorous as at any time in earlier
