On February 26, 2017, Brodbeck descendants invited Justice Ken Wise to visit
the cemetery. Judge Wise has a podcast about Texas history called
Wise About Texas. He recently featured Jacob Brodbeck on one:
L to R: Judge Ken Wise, Cindy Oestreich, Rod Oestreich, Reta Killingsworth (Hostess), Sherman Brodbeck, Dwight Brodbeck, and Wayne O'Bryant.
Reta Killingsworth deserves much of the credit for the progress on the cemetery. She has worked with determination to gain access from the landowner, apply for historic status, spearhead renovation efforts and keep everyone apprised of the progress.
