I never met my grandmother Gussie May Auld’s brother, Roy Nicholas (Nickless) Brown.  Here are two great photos of my Great Uncle Roy, the oldest child and only son of Alonzo Potter Brown and Grace Stulting Brown. Roy was born 8 Aug 1892 (some records show 1895) in Kerr County, Texas and died 4 Nov 1948 Alhambra, Los Angeles, California. After graduating from Tivy High School in the Class of 1911 he moved to California.  On the 5 Jun 1917, he registered for WWI and signed his name as Roy Nickless Brown.  I never met him or his family. [Note: his three children, my cousins still live in California.]

Here is a photo of Roy rowing the “Minnie Lee” on the Guadalupe River with two unidentified passengers, enjoying an afternoon under the great Cypress trees.  Great photo!

This photo was from Alois Remschel and published in a Kerrville newspaper in 1973.  The boys on the back row were Mark Mosty, Otto Schwethelm, Roy Brown and Stewart Vann.  The girls in front, left to right, were: Kate Remschel, Ethel Phillips, Olive Wells, Ethel Williams, Edna Saxon and Ona Hunter.

What wonderful photos and time!
