I recently purchased a postcard of the Hotel Pattee that is postmarked June 1931. I bought the card because I thought it would be fun if it turned out I was related to the original owners. According to the Texas 1910 Census Homar Pattee was born in Iowa in 1875. However, he is not listed in the 1880 Soundex for Iowa. In 1910 he was chief clerk in a Fort Worth Texas railroad office. Have you seen a Homar Pattee in the hotel owners family tree?
