A report of a Halloween party from the Kerrville Mountain Sun, October 30, 1909, transcribed below.
Continuing the unearthly march, the guests were required to descend the steps backward unto a region presided over by his Satanic Majesty. As they went down the steps each carried a looking glass and candle and looked searchingly for a reflection of the future Mr. or Mrs.
After going through the whole gamut of Hallowe'en performances, the guests were escorted to the dining room where delicious refreshments were served.
The whole affair, from the time the party reached the spook-infested bower until the last good night was said, was fully enjoyed by every one present and the jolly party were sincere in their expressions of pleasure.
KGS note: In 1920 the Gammons lived on Turtle Creek Road.
