|Old Tice Mystery Resolved?|
Well, through diligence and continued digging, I think I have found an answer to what nobody in Dallas or Fort Worth was able to provide. Well, at least other than Old Tee, who provided the answer in a comment on the Durango Blog. As it turns out, "Old Tice (actually Old Tige)" was a four-time Mayor of Dallas. What's more, he was the Father AND Grandaddy of two more Mayors of Dallas, including one who happened to be mayor when Kennedy got shot. What's more, he was related to all sorts of people. Specifically, this was General William Cabell. Ironically, even the "Daughters of the Confederacy" seem to have lost Cabell in their website. Perhaps it was because Cabell finished up the War of the Rebellion in a POW camp after invading free soil in Kansas. Still, how many other people were mayor of Dallas who also had a child and grandchild assume the same position?
Leave it to a Yankee to find out y'all's heritage!
