RIP Sam Houston IV March 10, 2017

Postby NefariousNed on Sun Mar 12, 2017 6:42 pm

Some of you may recall how our late friend Jeffrey Dane would visit Sam Houston IV every March in Katy Texas before coming to San
Antonio for HHD.

The Sam Houston Chapter of The Sons of the Republic of Texas greatly laments the passing away, on March 10, 2017, of our
great compatriot and friend, Sir Knight Sam Houston IV, KSJ. Sam was a founding member of the Sam Houston Chapter #38,
in Katy, chartered in 1987, so named in honor of his great grandfather, Texian commander and hero of the Battle of San
Jacinto, and President of the Republic of Texas.

Sam was invested into the Knighthood of the Order of San Jacinto in 1985, had served as Knight Commander of the Order, and
had served as the President General of The Sons of the Republic of Texas from 1990 to 1992. He had also served as President
of the San Jacinto Chapter #1; and, in 2016, was named President Emeritus of the Sam Houston Chapter.

Well Gill, this fellow (John Murray), who I saw while visiting Washington-On-The-Brazos, is another Houston descendant.

the Grand Moff Tarkin. ;) )

Definitely some resemblance to Houston, but I was more interested in what he is wearing on his shirt. Its a Combat Infantryman's Badge. He must be a fighter like Houston also...

I am told that the photo that Ned posted above is indeed John Murray, wearing a Combat Infantry Badge, and
that he is the G-G-Grandson of Sam Houston. Below is another photo of John Murray, again wearing the Combat
Infantryman's badge on his lapel. I know from experience that only an infantryman is eligible for this award and
it is earned in close combat. That story about the apple falling from the tree must be true.
