For allowing me to use their older publications of 1952/53 edition of "The Texas Almanac; I am placing this recipient link to their page for a more current information on Texas for you, the researchers behalf , since my site is featuring Texas History before 1990.
How reliable are these facts, is unknown other than who or where the sources came.
Each generation or State Legislature seems to have changed History either verbal or written to suit their personal or political needs.
