Inscription
Born in Tennessee in 1840, William Addison Spencer came to Texas with his family at the age of eight. He grew up southeast of San Antonio and served in the Civil War, attaining the rank of major. He later moved west to this area. He wed Caroline Hepzibeth Taylor (d. 1920), and seven children were born to the union. Spencer served as a frontier ranger, and two years after the formation of Kimble County became county clerk. When the sheriff resigned following an 1884 fire that destroyed the courthouse, voters elected Spencer to that office. In 1890 he became county judge and served five non-consecutive terms. He died in 1922, leaving a legacy of vital early service to his adopted county. (2005)
