Editor, the Advocate:
My thanks to Billie Yencer for doing the research on Victoria pioneer Juan Linn. My knowledge of the 1839 mayor was limited to what I was told after arriving in Victoria from Beeville in 1953.
I was aware that his full name was John Joseph Linn, and he was a native of Ireland. Roy Grimes told me that much during a coffee drinking session years ago at Bianchi's Pharmacy.
Thanks again to Billie Yencer for setting the record straight.
