The family of my mother (Aurora Barrera) has lived in Brackettville, Kinney County, since . . . well, since just about forever.
Stories of family, friends, teachers and shop owners were a great part of our family lore. It is my intent to visit Brackettville in the Spring of 2000, in order to finally see the places my mother has spoken so lovingly of throughout my life.
My mother was born in Brackettville. My father (Paulo G. Parras) arrived in Brackettville as a child, grew up there, and was even stationed at Ft. Clark.
Should anyone have any information on the Barrera, Reschman, Locke, and Longoria families, I would appreciate hearing from you.
I would also like to know if any Army photographs from the late 30's through WWII are available at Ft. Clark Historical Society.
Thanks so much!
