Second-graders at Franz Elementary recently studied the history of the City of Katy. To conclude their studies, fourth-generation Katy resident Rosanne Stockdick Lopez, presented a slide show full of historical pictures and stories about Katy in its beginnings. Stockdick Lopez’s great grandfather was Adam H. Stockdick, Katy’s first landman who helped bring many families to settle the area. Pictured are second-grade students displaying fact sheets about Katy or a copy of Adam H. Stockdick’s teaching certificate from 1886, including (front row, from left) Mahin Khasru, Bailey Dobbs, Hailea Middleton, Moses Salazar, (back row, from left) Lizette Garcia, teacher Alice Dobbs, Rosanne Stockdick Lopez, and Franchesca Vasquez.
