In 1890, Aunt Puss Hooks, Spurger’s outstanding citizen, was not known beyond the boundaries of Tyler County, Texas. She represented a way of life as it was lived in her day and a type of people who were among the unsung builders of our nation. Belonging to a generation that had its advent immediately following the Civil War, she was one of the children who had to go to the cottonfield instead of the schoolhouse.
