Re: [TexasCzechs] unidentified photo
- I can't remember the name of the Lutheran church. I

I think the Lutheran church is St. Marks?? The town
is extremelly small, the Frelsburg sign has no
population amount on it. There is a general store, a
garage, a Volunteer Fire Dept, and the Churches.

- Hard to tell, Pat. Lutheran is very close to Catholic and have many of the same things. I have seen Lutheran ministers that I've thought were Catholic priests in the past. I found the robe in that picture interesting even if I don't know the answer to the question.

- One suggestion would be to send the photo to Dorothy Albrecht, the GenWeb
coordinator for Colorado County. She then could post it to that website and
maybe someone out there will recognize it. She could also send it to Bill
Stein at the Nesbitt Library in Columbus.

- Fayette County Record recently had an article, Fayetteville Brethren Celebrates 150 years in Special Worship Service with a picture of Rev. Milton Maly, pastor of Fayette Brethren Church dressed in period clothing and his clerical collar is very similar to the one in the attached photo by Granny Pat.
