Where is Brenham?
I'm not at all certain there is a Brenham, Kansas. It doesn't show up on the list of Kiowa County, Kansas cities/townships or the list of cities in Kansas, it wasn't even created by Rambot back in the day, and it doesn't give a lick of results in Google Maps (not the most scientific method, I know). Mapquest shows it here but that doesn't tell me anything, except that maybe the railroad uses it as a placemarker. Most Google hits refer directly to the "Brenham fall", and take it as an article of faith that the place exists or is at least referenceable. I'll see if I can find something in the library to make more sense of this...currently Brenham redirects to the place in Texas, but I think that should become a disambiguation page once we know more. -- nae'blis 15:54, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
This is an interesting discovery. Maybe there was a place called Brenham when the first pieces were found in 1882. Perhaps you can find the original report: G.F.Kunz, American Journal of Science 40, 1890, p. 312; and R.Hay, American Journal of Science 43, 1892, p. 80. On the other hand, a name is a name is a name, and, in order to avoid confusion, meteorite names approved as official by the Meteoritical Society will not be changed later, even if they turn out to be wrong or misspelled etc. Fratz 13:36, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

The Fukang article should be merged here. I've cleaned it a bit in the meantime. Vsmith 15:57, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
Brenham Township, Kiowa County, Kansas is located between the towns of Greensburg and Haviland. Since the meteorites were found within that township in the 1800's the meteorites were given that name. There is still a grain elevator in use within the Brenham Township, between the railroad and Highway 54 that bears the name "Brenham" on it. 220.127.116.11 00:47, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
There are 55 pallasites, to start a list of all 55 with info on all of them would be quite lengthy. I am not sure any one pallasite is significant and/or different enough to warrent it's own page. Meteorhntr (talk) 09:05, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
I do not agree with users Mannheim_34 and Ohnoitsjamie with their removal of any link to webpages hosted on a commercial website (almost any .com domain). I expressed my opinion here and here. I ask to the community: are these in your opinion links to "web pages that primarily exist to sell products or services, or to web pages with objectionable amounts of advertising"?
