Below is the write up on Assi Alli that was published in the Zavala County History Book - "Zavala County Then and Now" some years ago.
ASSIN ALLI JESSINI
None of us really know the story of Assin Alli, but so the story goes... He had a very lucrative business; but alas his wife left him for a traveling salesman. He became a hermit-type person.
This we know – he was a Moslem, born in Lebanon. He wore a little U.S. Flag in his hat and went about the town cleaning up “trashy places” and blessing the rest of us. He died December 26, 1967
