Manuscripts/Mixed Material [Brook Campbell]
San Angelo, Texas.
[Brook Campbell?] came from Independence, Missouri, to Tom Green County when a lad of twelve. Throughout his ranching experience he worked all over West Texas before he settled at Mertzon, Irion County, Texas. Mr. Campbell's story follows:
“I used to come to San Angelo with my father when we had to camp in the wagon yard where the Woolworth building now stands.
“One Sunday morning we had been in for a few days and Tom Ketchum was hangin' 'round the yard. He was on the dodge then and was trying to get to his brother somewhere in another part of the state.
