  • Note:
    On the 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 census Herbert was listed in the community of Austin, Garfield County, Colorado. He was a farmer. In the earlier censuses he was shown as part of his father's household. In 1930, his father was shown as part of his household.

    When Herbert registered for the WWI draft on 5 Jun 1917, he was a farmer on the home farm in Rifle, Garfield County, Colorado. He was single.



    During the second world war, Herbert and brother in law Claude George supplied the army with 6 train cars of potatoes from their adjacent farms. They raised a very tender potato called a Double Red McClure---it was delicious to eat and had a lot of flavor. It isn't raised anymore as it had to be harvested by hand because it skinned up so easily. Herbert was well known for the potato and the army heard about it .

    The big brick house his father John Ellery Brosius had built burned down twice. This Aug 2010 report is from his son Herbert Willard Brosius: "The house burned down twice--the first time was on my father's birthday--I'm not sure which one-- my mother built a big fire to heat the oven to make him a birthday cake and soot in the chimney caught on fire sending sparks up the chimney and setting a fire on the roof----since it was such a big house we never had a ladder tall enough to get up there to put it out and the house burned down. I must have been 10 or twelve years old as I remember helping J P Richardson rebuild the house.

    The house was burned down again by a guy that had stolen a lot of things out of it. His name was Gerald Lane and I went to school with him. He and his wife were living in the log house at the time and his car was seen by the neighbors as leaving the ranch just before someone saw smoke across the valley and the house was burning. No one was home at the time except him and his wife. The couple had gone to Las Vegas and we never saw them again-- the story is Lane was a gambler and got in trouble there and some one killed him. I think I was working for the oil shale plant and my dad was on a hunting trip down Peance creek when the house was burned down."

    If you study my sources, you will see that I haven't done much research before the 1850 census. I have some material based on Bible entries, DAR applications, local history books, and wills for earlier periods but need to do a lot more work on the lines further out. Please contact me with updates and corrections.
