A letter writen by W. F. Redman  on 04 Feb 1939.

I was born July 12, 1873, in Germany.  In 1874 I came to this Country with my Parents to Burton, Texas, in Washington County.  In 1885 we moved to Montgomery County, and in 1887, we moved to Bosque County, were I was confirmed, May 17, 1887, in the Evangelical Lutheran Church.  In 1893, I went to Travis County.  On the 13th day of April, 1895 I joined the Sons Of Hermann Lodge, in Manor, Texas.


On December 28, 1895, I married Miss Anna Neidig, in Austin, Texas. On December 19, 1903 we moved to Runnels County.  In 1915, I joined the Masonic Lodge in Miles, Texas. In 1919 we made 100 bales of cotton, and got 42 cents a pound for most bales. In 1920 we also made 100 bales of cotton. This cotton was made on the Pflueger farm north of Rowena.

I had 3 brothers, and 3 sisters. My wife had 4 brothers and 7 sisters. About 30 years ago, I quit coffee and tabacco, and about 18 years ago I quit all strong drink, and I feel much better and happier.

In 1923 we moved to our own farm 5 miles southwest of Rowena, Texas. We had 12 children, six of whom died in infancy. We reared 3 boys, and 3 girls
