Admittedly, this is a long shot, but I was curious whether anyone had a copy of the published ordinances of the town of Bryan, in Brazos County, that were printed in 1877?
The Bryan city hall burned three times - once in 1879, again in 1888, and a third time in 1909.
The first two fires destroyed almost all of the early Bryan town records.
Fortunately, the third fire - which also destroyed the town's fire department - did not burn any records, because they were stored in a recently constructed fire proof vault.
Various sources indicate that Bryan published a collection of its ordinances in 1877.
Unfortunately, no copies of that booklet can now be found.
They would, of course, provide some interesting history on the town's early history, if we could just find a copy.
It seems possible that the descendents of some early Bryan family might have a copy of this item and not realize its historical significance.
