John filed for a pension for his service in the Civil war on 12/12/1907. He
states that he is 82 years old and has lived in Coryell County for 35 years. He
is feeble from old age and has only a horse and buggy worth about $70. He
states that he served in Co. F, 9th Texas Cavalry. His pension is disproved for
unknown reasons. The pension is signed J.W. Brazzil and is witnessed by W.H.
Morgan and T.C. Morrison. There are also affidavits from E.L. Lawrence and L.F.
Brazzil (his son).

Gatesville Messenger and Star-Forum--July 23, 1909
News was received of the death of Uncle Johnny Brazzill at his home, near The
Grove. Burial taking place on Monday afternoon, at Flint Creek Cemetery. He
raised a large family, and was one of our early settlers.

John probably liked to write. He faithfully kept a diary during his trip from
Marshall, TX to The Grove, TX in December 1872. He wrote a poem after the death
of his second wife.

"I have lost my mate
My sorrows grate
I am once more left a lone
no tongue can tell the grief
i feel while on earth i rom
My race is run
My dayes dun
My sun is all most gone down
My hope is bright beyound
will shine brighter on the resurction morn
The grove September 25 1905
