Surnames: Brode, McKenzie
I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial. On 19 June 1934 in the Sunnyside community, farmer and constable Walter N. BRODE went alone to the black schoolhouse where a celebration was occurring. When he attempted to break up a fight he was shot in the head and killed by Jim McKENZIE. A bystander shot and killed McKENZIE when he fled. BRODE was buried in Waller County - I need location of gravesite. I would like to locate any surviving family members.

Are you in Waller County? I have some "history addict" friends who live there that might research for you, if you don't have a contact.

"Funeral services for Sadie Brode, 89, a longtime resident of Somerville .....2009 .....Interment will follow in
Oaklawn Cemetery in Somerville."

She had a son named Walter. Check Oaklawn. She was the right age to be Walter's wife.

I work out of Austin. I will post queries for local assistance and they are welcome to assist as they get time. It is a volunteer effort for the memorials and I am also co-author of a book - Texas Lawmen The Good and the Bad 1835-1899 and we are working on 2nd edition 1900-1940 due this fall.
