Mr. [sic] E. G. Hancher, 50, ardent lover of flowers and music, who had been an active member of the Garden Club ever since it was organized, died early Wednesday in Nightingale hospital following an illness of several months.  She had been in ill health for two years.

Mrs. Hancher was born Clara Augusta Ladd, May 17, 1887, in Clay county, Kansas, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Ladd.  She came to El Campo in 1910 and married Mr. Hancher on June 18, 1913 here.

During all her residence here she was an enthusiastic worker in the First Christian Church.  She likewise maintained an interest in all civic affairs, but was particularly devoted to music and the programs of the Garden Club.  Mrs. Hancher was a deep student of plant life and was recognized locally as an authority on flowers.

Services will be held Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the First Christian church with the pastor, S. A. Crouch officiating.  Burial will be in the O.D.H.S. Garden of Memories with the Wheeler Funeral Home in charge.

In addition to her husband, survivors include two sons: Ladd of El Campo and John of Columbus; one grandchild Thomas Beattie Hancher of Columbus.

Grant's obituary was published in the "El Campo News" (El Campo, Texas) on Monday, January 4, 1954:b

SERVICES HELD SATURDAY FOR E. G. HANCHER, 89

Services were held Saturday, January 2, for E. G. Hancher, 89, who died Thursday at the home of his son, County Judge John Hancher in Columbus.

The services held at 2:30 p.m. were conducted at the Wheeler Funeral Home Chapel by Rev. Barton Williams.  Interment was in the O.D.H.S. Garden of Memories.

Mr. Hancher was born near Des Moines, Iowa on November 15, 1864.  His education included four years at Drake University and the study of law in Nebraska.  In 1888 he was admitted to the Nebraska state bar association but never practiced.

The El Campo pioneer was widely traveled both in this country and in Latin America.  In his youth he prospected for gold in Honduras and Nicaragua.

His business experience was equally as broad as his travel which brought him to El Campo in 1903 with the Allison-Ritchie Company.  His work with the company required that he travel extensively over the Southwest.

In 1913 Mr. Hancher married Miss Clara Ladd.  She died in November 1948 [sic].  Mr. Hancher was a resident of El Campo until moving to Columbus in March of last year.

He is survived by two sons, Judge John Hancher of Columbus and Ladd Hancher of El Campo, and a grandson, Tom Hancher of Columbus.

Pallbearers were P. C. Owen, Claude Appling, Herschel Payne, Ronald Smith, A. J. Isaacson, and Driscoll Stallworth of Austin.
