the Poorhouse Story
PERSONAL NOTES FROM READERS:

"My family bought a tract of land on the edge of town in Comanche, [Comanche County]  Texas about 1969. It had for many years been unnoticed and was overgrown. My father later told me it had been the poor farm in the early days. He cleaned it up and built a nice home and a shop for his business. After some years, dad sold a portion of it to the school board. He has by now sold it all and there are several offices and businesses there. Northeast of  it all, though, there is still a portion that has a large pecan orchard and some pastureland. South and adjoining the original tract is probably the oldest and largest cemetery in Comanche."
