That's my old stomping grounds. I've spent a ton of time out there. Great pictures!
Here is a tombstone from the ghost town of Bryan-
I'm a really poor photographer and the lighting was terrible but it reads-
"Erastus Wilcox Barnum
Died July 24 1883
Aged 29 yrs"
Bryan was a very rough town for it's very short existence. Poor Erastus was likely hanged.
