"Today I saved an old photo album from being buried in a heap of trash at
the Dallas landfill. I cleaned my yard and took a load to a City of
Dallas disposal facility and saw an attendant looking at the album that
someone had just dumped. Some of the photographs date to the 1800's.
Anyhow, it appears to be from a family by the name of Brunkenhoefer.
Other than some old pictures there was a card from the 1903-1904
Hochheim Prairie School No. 27, DeWitt County.
