  • The story in my family is that my great, great grandmother Brune stayed in the Doyle house with one other woman during the battle of Cape Girardeau. This was Henry P. Brunes wife. Henry P was a blacksmith - his son was a was wagon builder. Anyway, the story is that the other woman with her at the Doyle house was too sick to move out of town. The story is that all of the other women and children were moved well out of town to escape the battle. It's always interesting to see pictures of that house.
