In the year 1911 or 1912, Allie had moved to the Corpus Christi area, and then to Seadrift, Texas where she opened and operated the first of her boarding houses along with her second husband John Oliver Bridges. I believe the place was called Bridges Hotel.
Whatever the duration of their stay, by 1920 the family was evidently back in Live Oak County, about a two-hour drive east of Seadrift. There is no clear reference to Joseph's occupation at the time of the census.
Come 1930, the family had two additional members, Joseph Bushrod, Jr. (1921) and Ollie Dell (1923). Herbert was out of the house, and the rest were living in San Patricio County (Aransas Pass) on Arch Street.
The census this time shows his occupation as constable of one of the local precincts. I hope to find out a bit more about his duties and how he came into this position at some point in the future.
