  1. I see mention of Hutchinson House, I have a relative that lived in Kerrville 1890 to early 1900's with the last name Hutchins. Her name was Mae, my two times great grand mother Lillian Clark married name Carmichael(changed to Lilly or I have seen it Lillie)I have a picture of her from 1890, can you tell me if this is the same Hutchins?

  2. Also mentioned is C.O. Nesting, a Bandera county ranchman. Another one of Lillian Clark's cousins was Mae Stanard of Medina, daughter of Harvey A. Stanard. (Lillian's mother was a Stanard) Mae married a Bo Nesting, she inherited the house which is now known as the Nesting house, it still stands according to Merry the historian for Bandera county. Is the man mentioned any relation to her?
