Brite Book is Published

J.Taylor Brite has published an interesting book called, "Albertus Brite and Descendants of Kentucky, Missouri, Texas and California", which gives the history of the Brite and associated families, along with many interesting documents, photos and great stories.

Mr.Brite was born in Atascosa County, attended Pleasanton High School, after three years in the U.S. Air Force, entered St.Mary's Law School, earning his law degree in 1950. During this time he met and married a beautiful young nursing student from Santa Rosa Hospital School of Nursing, named Francis Calcote. After passing the State Bar the Brites came to Pleasanton where Mr. Brite practiced law for 60 years, serving 9 years as County Attorney, 17 years as District Attorney (81st Judicial District) and 8 1/2 years as District Judge, 12 years as visiting District Judge until his retirement in 1997.

The Book is a culmination of 50 years of collecting information on the Brite families, is very well organized and fascinating even if you aren't related!
