Brenham's "Sergeant" and
a search for an old Brenham Home

Brenham, Texas 1950s home
Dear TE, This [photo] is an old house in Brenham that I lived in around 1950-1953 when I was about two. After Brenham, we moved to St. Louis, and then to Fort Worth. At that time, there were four of us kids, ages 4 1/2 to newborn. Mom and Dad are now gone, and I've only just found these pictures. This is the only picture I've found of the house so far. I remember that it was close to the railroad. There were a couple of woman (Dozzie and Marie) that used to help our Mother with the housekeeping.
Girl on pony, and Sergeant, Brenham, Texas 1950s

I also remember an old Black man, who dressed in khaki and rode a horse with a pony in tow, selling rides (for a nickel or dime) on the pony. I believe he was a WWI veteran - and I only remember him as "Sergeant." He rode up and down the graded roads whistling a tune.

I would like to know more about this house. I feel like it may have been bulldozed since then; but [if possible] I sure would like to know more about the house [or any of] the people I've mentioned. - Melissa Brown, Spring, Texas, October 30, 2006
