Mr. Germany is an attorney and is quite busy in his practice in Grand Saline. The family, though German in name, is Irish in blood and are more immediately from North Carolina. His grandfather was named John, and was born in North Carolina, but lived later and died in Mississippi. His vocation was that of farming. His father, J. W. Germany, was born in Mississippi; was a general business man, and came to Texas in 1866. His mother was a Tumlinson, was born and reared in Van Zandt County. They were married in 1868 and have eight children. The mother has passed away but the father is still living in the City of Grand Saline. Mr. Germany, himself, was born in 1870 in Van Zandt County, was educated in the common schools and in Southwestern University, where he graduated. He began the practice of law in 1893. In 1896 he married Miss Black, of Madisonville, Texas. They have three children. Mr. Germany has all the while been identified with Van Zandt County and thinks the ligitimate (sic) expectations of her development is beyond present comprehension. He is a member of the order of Elks, and K. of P., and has been engaged in a great many of the interesting law cases in this county. He is affable, generous and public spirited, doubtless a bright future awaits him.
