Monday's News: Erath County, Texas

I spent a day last summer at Austin's Dolph Briscoe Center for American History reading old newspapers from Erath County, Texas. My great-grandfather, Terrell  Bryan settled there in 1878 and my grandmother's Hairston family moved to Erath County in 1883. My grandparents, Redic Bryan and Myrtie Hairston married in Erath County in 1900.  I learned much about my grandparents and their extended families while reading these historical newspapers. I also learned much about the community and liked the following article describing Erath County and Stephenville.
