I’ve just heard from my mom that a relative who lives in Palm Springs, Marcelino Caballero has passed away. Details are still coming in, but it appears that he went to the hospital last week and died from internal bleeding.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. We are very saddened by this news.
A memorial service is being worked on, perhaps late this coming week.

Liberty landmark. The regional economy in the early 20th century
focused on trade, timber and agriculture. The discovery of large oil
fields. Including Batson (15miles NE) and south Liberty (4 miles S.)
brought great activity to Liberty as the nearest rail connection, and
many new buildings went up, including restaurants, general stores and
this railroad hotel.
Louisiana native John Joshua Ott (1867-1939) and his wife Sallie
Wiggins Ott (1874-1963) of San Jacinto county hired contractor Elza
Burch to build the hotel. Completed in late 1928 adjacent to the Texas &
New Orleans railroad tracks and very near the depot. The Ott Hotel was
well positioned to sever train passengers and was known as a
Drummer Hotel. Named for the traveling salesmen of the day. Its
location was also ideally suited for automobile tourists on the Old
Spanish Trail (later State Highway 3 and U.S. Highway 90). As well as
those with business in the nearby liberty county courthouse.
The hotel’s original design included 50 rooms in an L-shaped building
footprint, with community baths in the middle of the long halls. Dining
room and parlor space were later converted into additional rooms. A
sign painted on the bricks on the side along the railroad attracted new
arrivals. This two-story brick building features paired windows and has
a prominent four-bay front porch with tapered wood columns, A
low-pitch roof and brick detailing. Craftsman-style exposed rafter tails
outline the porch and the entire building. Several managers operated
the hotel, and the property remained in the Ott family until 2002 when
Mr. & Mrs. Mc Cain purchased the hotel.
