- and the history, and the music, the food, my God. It's an easy
city to love.
Maggie Van Ostrand
Mr. Epperson, a carpenter by trade, lived at 1601 First Street in
Brownwood Texas, though he wasn't always a carpenter and he didn't

Porter of San Antonio
by Maggie Van Ostrand
If even half the legends passed down through generations are true,
the Old West was a riotous and exciting place. Whether heroes or
desperadoes, these legendary people all seem to have either been
born in, traveled through, or fought for the great Republic of Texas.

rest. They needed relaxation. They needed love. And Fannie Porter
of San Antonio supplied these diversions. This is her story.
