    A Virginian and a soldier who surrendered at Appomattox with Gen. Robert E. Lee, W. E. Partlow moved to Texas after the Civil War (1861-65). He married Nancy Jane Sullivan (1860-1922), daughter of Denton County pioneers, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Sullivan. Partlow, a merchant, was elected first mayor when Sanger was incorporated in 1892. He built this house for his family in 1904. From 1907 to 1913, they lived in New Mexico, where Partlow was commissioner of U.S. Circuit and district courts. After returning to Sanger, he served as Justice of the Peace and died here. (1976)
