I find them in my house. I have been collecting books on Texas and the
Southwest since 1952. I am especially interested in local history of
counties I have lived in (Erath, Comanche, Gregg, Dawson, Travis, Nueces,
Williamson) and that my ancestors and my wife's ancestors lived in: (Bosque,
Collin, Bell, Falls, and Cherokee). I am omitting out-of-state counties.
I'm pretty sure Mrs. Westphal's book is in the Dublin Library. She may
still have some for sale. The book on servicemen may be in the Dublin
Library, but she copied the excerpts from a copy owned by Robert Dale
Burnett, my next-door neighbor in Dublin.
You can send an E-mail to the Dublin Public Library to ask about a
specific book: dblinlib(a)our-town.com or ghendon(a)texinet.net.
Sometimes you can find out-of-print Texas books at www.abebooks.com
. I located an original copy of "Incidents in the History of
Dublin" recently on the Internet, but it was priced $750.00. Fortunately I
already had one. You can buy a reprint from the Dublin Historical Soc. for

Where do you find all these books you mention from time to time and can
copies be purchased? Are these books found in the local area libraries?
