I recently put up a vintage photo of a deer hunt that took place in San Saba, County. Since that time, I’ve been contacted by numerous people as they tried to ID the men in the photo. This week, Comanche’s Eldon Ray Tupin brought me even more photos and a bit more info. Of course, with the info comes a little more of the mystery.
According to Tupin, there was a large group of men from Comanche County, Brown County, and even Dallas County who joined in on the hunt each year in San Saba. Of course, there were no deer in Comanche County back then.
I could use your help in filling in the gaps as to just exactly who the men in these photos are. Eldon Ray believes that this hunt (but there may be photos from more than one hunt) occurred in about 1941.
The above names come from Eldon Ray Tupin. Roy Tupin was his father, and Parker Tupin (Dallas) was his uncle. Tupin also remembers that Earl Albin and Delmer McDaniel were brothers-in-law after Delmer married Earl’s sister, Pearl Albin.
