Edward "Eddie" McMinn Anderson (Cousin Eddie) came to Texas in 1894 to live on the McMinn ranch 40 miles from Marfa, Texas—land that eventually became part of the Brite Ranch. Eddie married Lucas Charles Bright in 1896. They contributed to Texas Christian University for the creation of what is referred to today as the Brite Divinity School
