Ancestral File Number:<AFN> 41TS-Z3

written by Michael A. Reese in the book of "Astride the Old San Antonio Road A pictorial history of Burleson County"

James Earl Lytle came to Burleson County in 1886 in Bastrop County, Texas. The first place he lived in Burleson county was Birdsong, then Deanville, and the last thirty years were in Caldwell.
Besides farming, Earl Lytle was store owner, mail carrier, a barber, and was also postmaster of Deanville he handled the mail brought by the "Dal-sey" which was really the Dal-Sa, a train from Dallas to San Antonio - thus the name. In his younger days Earl worked for short periods of time in: Rogers, Texas; Sour Lake, Texas, and Amelia, Texas. This was the only time he was away from Burleson County, and he soon returned, never to leave again. In Deanville he met Nellie Gertude Strong, the daughter of John Thomas Strong and Mollie Frances (Cory) Strong. On 7 June 1910 they ran off to get married at Franklin, Texas. They were married for over 63 years. Earl and Nellie lived in Deanville area until 1942 when they moved in Caldwell. Here they opened a grocery store next to their home at 203 North Banks. Lytle's store was a favorite meeting place for the west side gang for many years.
One interesting bit of history was his cousin the notorious William Preston "Wild Bill" Longley of Giddings,Texas on 11 October 1878 for the killing of Wilson Anderson. According to some Bill Longley had killed 32 men.
Something else of historical interest was Earl Lylte's great grandfather, John W. Lytle, who was a Stephen F. Austin Colonist to Texas. He received a land grant of 4428 acres in 1833, and the deed was signed over to him by the Father of Texas.
Earl and Nellie Lytle had three daughters: Leola, Jessie, and Ozue. They also had a foster son, Larry Broaddus.

The first Lytle family came to Burleson County about 1892. They were Tom Bully Lytle, his wife Mary C. Joines Lytle and their four sons: William Alvey, James Earl, John Henry, and Arthur Lee.
They came here from Bastrop County by way of the Old San Antonio Road. James Earl Lytle was six years old at the time of remembered the trip well. It was winter time and took many days of travel by wagon. Along the way Tom showed his boys the farm where he had lived as a boy. This was the last time they were to see the old home place in Bastrop County.
Near Deanville, Texas is a community called Birdsong and this is where the Lytles were to settle. The first night of their arrival, they camped near the Chriesman Chapel. A hard snow came down all night. In order for his wife and four little boys to survive, Bully Lytle stayed up all night shoveling the snow off the tent in which his family was sleeping. As soon as the storm was over, Bully began clearing land and built a log cabin. Earl Lytle lived to be eighty-seven years old and remembered many small details of their first home in Burleson County, even his father's making shingles with a froe.
The Lytles lived in Birdsong many years. Their youngest son, George Dewey Lytle, was born there on 22 August 1899. From there Bully and Mary Lytle moved to Sand Grove in Milam County, but the older Lytle boys remained in Birdsong. "Early" Lytle as James Earl was called lived with the Bob Webb family.
When Mary Lytle became very sick in 1912, she came back to Burleson County which she considered home. She spent her last days with Earl and Nellie Lytle who had been married on 7 June 1910. Mary Lytle died on 16 June 1912 and was buried beside her infant in the Chriesman Chapel Cemetery. Bully Lytle never returned to Burleson County. He died at Sand Grove on 20 January 1915 and is buried there.
(note: In error some thought Tom Bully's name to be Walter Thomas. His name was William Thomas, according to his marriage license. As a boy he had been the town bully and the nickname "stuck". When he signed his name he always went by T. B. Litle).
William Alvey Lytle married Odie Collins and lived in Corpus Christi, Texas. James Earl Lytle was the only Lytle to remain in Burleson County. John Henry Lytle married Melvina Langham and moved to Los Angeles. Arthur Lee Lytle married and lived in Fort Worth, Texas. George Dewey Lytle married Julia Gladys Adney and lived in Armona, California.

He is buried in the Masonic Cemetery, Section 4, Block 11, Lot 3. Grave is marked with tombstone.
