Had an E mail yesterday from Cousin Glenda Moring Niederhoffer with
some photos of the UFO and interviews. I will try to forward this to
you if you cannot find it on Stephenville Empire Tribune Internet site.
- contact me off Erath County site if you can. . Last night 2 TV
Stations in Waco had the report on TV and earlier 2 in Fort Worth -
Channels 4 and 5. also carried interviews. Also, seems there were some
Military planes in the area which do not normally fly in that area-
Stephenville past Selden towards Hico. Stephenville Empire Tribune had
reports on it. They are on-line. Then I phoned a Carery cousin in
Erath County and he had met several who had seen it. He said he was
busy working with his head down.
One report was that cattle had been nervous the last 2 days- like
they do when a storm is on the way and Barometer is changing Cattle
breeding had nothing to do with this behavior. We used to see this
on our Johnsville farm when cattle would walk the fence , bawling-
and not eating much- and that night a storm - wind and /or rain from
the west. One such storm blew our chicken house away, which puzzled the
chickens, some with less feathers . They tried to get back on the roost-
with no house left. A window blew out of the Johnsville home, and moved
front porch. Next day cattle were very calm. Buck Litle and wife and
Herbert and Richard were very small. They stopped at our cellar. Car
blew into ditch . Which would you prefer- the wind or the chicken snakes
which were sometimes in log ceiling of dirt cellars.
By the way, the Dugout with bunks was first West Texas- New Mexico
homestead home, besides tents. Most of Uncle Oliver Wyly's girls were
born in New Mewxico and lived in a dugout.
One such day preceded the tornado which tore down houses in Riverside
Edition before it had streets and present houses.
I have seen FBI reports by Percy Wyly of Tahlequah, Oklahoma birth ,
agent under J. Edgar Hoover of his findings in Roswell incident. When the
courts ordered it released by regional office in Fort Worth, some words
or sentences were black lined, Now, I cannot find that report which was
on the Internet. Percy retired as head of security of Albuquerque Sandia
Corp. and Albequerque City schools. His son was an attorney there, when
Don Wyly Slaughter, of Roswell, Levelland, and Albuquerque was also an
my wife's sister Marie Roy Whittenburg of Purdon- alone Texas and Pettit,
Texas. . His nephew Eddie Lee Whittenburg was raised in a concrete dugout
with small windows turned into bedrooms after newer house was built.
Eddie ran for Governor of Texas once.
Ab McCarty , also of Pettit married a sister in law of Ruthie Riley
Burnett Ab was killed when his car fell on him in the loose sand. He was
from Walnut Sorings area where his siblings lived. "Mac " McCarty was
one of my students and has coached at Lubbock Monterrey High in
L:Lunblock if he is still teaching.
Check your Google for UFO sittings from Auora, Texas before Wright
Brothers and many others through Google windows.
