  1. Mary Phillips says:

    The first mayor of Orlando was Capt.William Jackson Brack, Sr.

    This is an article about his death in 1901.
    Kissimmee Valley Gazette
    Friday, May 3, 1901
    SUDDEN DEATH OF CAPT. BRACK
    Kissimmee was shocked to hear of the sudden death of Capt. W. J. Brack at Narcoossee on Tuesday night. His body was found in the woods about a mile from his home, by his son Percy. He had gone out to look for some hogs after dinner, and not coming home at dark, his family suspected some mishap and set out on search. His horse was feeding near by and his body was found in a sitting position against a tree. The Captain had been feeling poorly for some time and it is thought that death came from heart disease. His father died in the woods in the same way many years ago.
    The funeral was held at Narcoossee yesterday and was attended by a large delegation of Masons from Kissimmee.
    Next week we shall give and extended obituary notice. It will suffice now to say that Capt. Brack was one of the best men in this section of country and his death is a heavy blow to the whole county.
