The Memory

Thomas Jefferson Gazley should also be remembered as an active Mason, serving as Senior Warden of Holland Lodge No. 36, before it became No.1, and he was a Charter Member of the Grand Lodge of Texas when it was organized on December 20, 1837. During the opening meeting of the Grand Lodge on April 16, 1838, Gazley served as Grand Senior Warden pro tempore. During his later years, he maintained a membership with Bastrop Lodge No. 58.

Gazley was known by many of his associates as: a man of impeccable integrity; a man’s truest friend; a man of noble character; a man lofty in ideals; a true and loyal patriot; a man of culture and refinement; a thorough gentleman; a man of even temper; a good neighbor; and a confiding friend.

“I have come to know Thomas Jefferson Gazley as a True Texas Hero.”

Thank you, Dr. Gazley, for all that you have done for Smithville, Bastrop County, Texas, and Texans.”
