  • Subject: Double Mountain, Texas
    Dear TE, My name is William meadows. I am a professor at Missouri State University in Springfield. I am about to publish a work on Kiowa Indian geography and place names and am trying to locate a clear picture of Double Mountain (the actual mountain) and permission to use it in my book. Do you know of anyone that might be able to assist me with this? If any one has some clear photos at 300 dpi (or even 600), I would appreciate them and would be happy to credit them for the photos. I would like to have something within the next 4 months, but I am flexible. Thank you so much. - William Meadows, Missouri State University, WilliamMeadows@MissouriState.edu, February 09, 2007

  • Dear TE, My family lived in the old house, close to the mountains, that was shown in your article.

    My Dad was Walter Franklin Collom, one of 14 children in the Collom clan close to Aspermont. He was killed in 1943, and my Mother, Flossie, sister Faye, and little brother Tracy, moved to the little farm my Dad had purchased a few miles out of Denton, in Aubrey, Texas. The copperheads were as bad in Aubrey, as the rattlesnakes had been in Peacock and Aspermont. I will be in Aspermont over the Labor Day weekend for the Collom reunion. It is very sad that only one son of the family of 14 will be there.

    My double cousin, Jean Collom, sent the picture, and the other information in your article. Thanks, Grady F. Collom, August 15, 2006
