    • Little was known of the early years of the Broers family Texas except that a fourth child Martin was born December 7, 1851 and that the children were privilege to have been born into and reared in a devout Christian home and were taught by precept and example. Martin married Aryanna Lipps of DeWitt County, Texas.

      Census of 180 lists Martin as a "machine Agent"

      In the obituary of Mamie Broer Rose, daughter of Martin Broer and Arama Lipps, it says: "...at the family home located on N. college St. just across from the City Cemetery....There her father conducted an apiary for years. One of the early specialist of this section in bee culture, he was a contributor to magazines in the east specializing in that industry. At the time of this death many years ago, announcement with a tribute on his contribuions to the industry appeared in these publications."
