I was at Canton Trade Days today, and bought an old ledger for $7. In it I found the ledger of W. C. Farrar, and his company in Loraine, Tx, The Auto Supply Station. I've found his grave at one of the Colorado City grave along with his wife Minerva Farrar. If anyone has any info, maybe a picture of the supply station in Loraine, when it was in use in the 20s or a picture of him would be great! I love this kind of stuff and would like to know more about this guy. Also, if anyone who reads this is related to this family, feel free to email me. Im sure you would like your Grandfathers/Great Grandfathers ledger!

I am hoping to locate a picture of my Grandfather's, Penn Smith, Radiator Shop that was in Colorado City, Mitchell County, Texas from about 1926 to 1935. If there is anyone who knew Penn and Siglee Smith and their children Nannie Faye, Ruth, Penn Jr. or Trudell aka Trudy I would love to correspond. My Mother, Ruth Smith Walton, died May 13, 1997 but I have a tape of Mom talking about growing up in Colorado City.-- Elaine Walton Lewis 12-13-2011
Hello. I am looking for any information on Joe and Elizabeth Arnison, both born and raised in England but we believe they moved to that area in Texas from 1886 to 1893.  Possibly a daughter was born in 1889, Colorado City , Elizabeth.  Thank you for your time, any advice you could give would be appreciated. -- Valerie Halladay 11-4-2011
My great grandfather Thomas Wiley Phillips died 1913 at Westbrook and is buried there. He was a Mason and probably a Baptist probably living with his son John Wesley Phillips at the time. I think TWP would probably have had an obituary in a Mitchell and/or Howard County TX newspaper.If you can find it please let me know.  --Doyle Phillips 6-9-2011
