Norman University of Oklahoma Press, 2000.

2. Stagecoach Inns of Texas

by Carter, Kathryn Turner.

Austin, Tex. Eakin Press, 1994.

Excerpts: Mrs. Angelina B. Eberly had moved to Austin from Bastrop in 1839. Famed for the food she served, her first success was dinner served at three o'clock on October 17, 1839 for President Lamar and his cabinet. During her days in Austin, she served suppers at most of the celebrations. Perhaps she is remembered most for her part on December 30, 1842, in the "War of the Archives," when she spun the cannon around from the front of Bullock's Inn and fired at the wagons trying to move the state archives.

First known as Mina, the town is rich in history, century-old buildings and homes. One of the historic homes is the Campbell Taylor House, a stagecoach inn, which was built in 1836 at the crossing on the Old San Antonio Road, which goes through Bastrop.

Destroyed by fire in 1899, the Nicholson House was proclaimed as one of the most famous and beautiful of the early day Texas stagecoach inns.

It was known far and wide as one of the best "feeders" in all of Texas. Travelers could endure an uncomfortable ride on the stage with the knowledge that they eventually would enjoy the hospitality of Mr. and Mrs. James Nicholson in Bastrop.

Many of these benevolent associations (YWCA) sprang up in towns like Bastrop, Texas, where the local population's determination to ensure community stability and prosperity was enhanced by significant black home ownership at a time when relatively few blacks could afford to own their own homes. Bastrop's Kohler-McPhaul, Harriet and Charlie McNeil, Beverly and Lula Kerr, and Jennie Brooks Houses, all recognized in the National Register, reflect such community efforts.

Jennie Brooks House, 1009 Walnut, Bastrop, This vernacular Greek Revival style house is significant for its association with Jennie Brooks, an early black settler in Bastrop and daughter of a slave. Brooks purchased this lot and built this house around 1890. This house is also one of the oldest houses in Bastrop built by a black family, and Brooks was one of the few black home owners in the growing black community.

Kerr Community Center, 1308 Walnut, Bastrop, Built in 1914, this two-story frame building represents the social history of African Americans in Bastrop. Beverly and Lula Kerr, prominent black community leaders and talented music teachers, built the Kerr Community Center and rented out the facility for social activities, lodge meetings, and entertainment events. The building was erected just behind their house, which still stands at 1305 Pine.

Kohler-McPhaul House, 1901 Pecan, Bastrop, Kohler-McPhaul House, with its unique architectural style showing German-influenced proportions, is associated with the McPhauls, a black family that purchased the house around the turn of the century. This house represents black home ownership during a time when few African Americans owned their own homes .

Harriet and Charlie McNeil House, 1805 Pecan, Bastrop, Built in 1870, the Harriet and Charlie McNeil House is one of the oldest houses in Bastrop owned by a black family. In the early 20th century, Harriet McNeil, an African American, purchased this house, and it remained the home of Harriet and her son, Charlie, throughout most of this century.

Ploeger-Kerr-White House, 806 Marion, Bastrop, This one-story frame house was constructed by Carl Ludwig Ploeger, a native of Prussia, soon after he married in 1863. It was later purchased by Robert Kerr, the first black legislator from Bastrop and one of the few African Americans to hold political office in the years immediately following Reconstruction. Robert Kerr came to Bastrop from the Kerr Creek community, near Victoria, Texas sometime around 1865. Kerr's first job was keeping books for Hasler Grocery on Main Street; later he drove an express wagon and delivered groceries to people around the town. He became a member of Paul Quinn African Methodist Episcopal Church and was active in church affairs and community activities. Most important, Kerr was elected to the state legislature in 1881, and he remained in office until 1883. Robert Kerr and his wife, Sarah, resided at Ploeger-KerrWhite House throughout his career. The house was later sold to Beverly and Lula Kerr, black leaders and educators, as well as the founders of Kerr Community Center in Bastrop. The house remained in the Kerr-family for 47 years.

13. A Life Among the Texas Flora : Ferdinand Lindheimer's Letters to George Engelmann

by Lindheimer, Ferdinand.; Engelmann, George; Goyne, Minetta Altgelt

College Station Texas A&M University Press, 1991.

For the time being I do not think I will be going to Bastrop, since my friend Ernst Kleberg has written me during the last few days that things are very uncertain at their place because of the Indians now; within a few days six men have been killed by them in the vicinity of the town. Not only does one have to keep the horses in stalls and chain them, but also guard the slits in the walls of the stalls, because the Indians kill the horses with arrows if they cannot steal them. Henceforth you must send letters and everything else (e.g., newspapers) for me to Industry, Austin County.

Just now I read in the newspaper that a number of horses were stolen at Bastrop again on 6 May, but that nineteen well-armed Texans followed the tracks of the Indians on the very next morning after the theft and, as is often the case here, they got their horses back and got some other loot too. - (It would be worth the effort to start a collection of anecdotes concerning these little excursions by Texans against the Indians. What tireless perseverance and romantic boldness on the one hand, and what panicky fear and cheating cowardice on the other often come to light there. The Anglo Americans are not all cast in the same mold, you see; they are a people but not a nation.)

14. Texas Ranger Tales : Stories That Need Telling

by Cox, Mike.

Plano, Tex. Republic of Texas Press, 1997.

Born in Bastrop on July 5, 1855, Ahijah W. Grimes was named for his mother's father, Ahijah M. Highsmith.

On March 2, 1874—Texas Independence Day as well as his bride-to-be's twentieth birthday—Caige married Lottie A. Lyman in Bastrop.

Like many Texas men of his time, Grimes was a Mason. He belonged to Gamble Lodge 244 in Bastrop. Although the original lodge records were destroyed in a fire in 1862, Grimes' father was a charter member of the lodge. Caige was initiated March 10, 1873, passed on April 26, and raised on May 14. He and his brother Masons met the fourth Sunday of each month on the second floor of a building at Chestnut and Pecan Streets.

In 1874 the twenty-three-year-old Grimes was serving as city marshal of Bastrop, earning $40 a month plus fees.

If Grimes was involved in investigating any major criminal cases while serving as city marshal, the Bastrop newspaper was silent on the subject. All the action seems to have been taking place at the nearby Bastrop County community of McDade, where a murder and the hasty lynching of the alleged perpetrator were reported on May 9, 1874.

By then Caige and Lottie had two children: Elizabeth, born January 31, 1875, and Benjamin Lyman Grimes, born May 10, 1876.

On September 21, 1876, the Bastrop County Commissioner's Court appointed Grimes as Precinct 6 Constable. He put up his bond and was sworn in on October 25.

19. Texas : With Particular Reference to German Immigration and the Physical Appearance of the Country

by Roemer, Ferdinand.

Austin, Tex. Eakin Press, 1983.

Since we tarried at a number of plantations, we did not reach Bastrop until late at night although covering only thirty miles that day. Despite the lateness of the hour we not only found good lodging in the hotel, but also had a good supper composed of coffee, cornbread, fried chicken and canned fruits.

On the following morning we inspected the city, but soon convinced ourselves that like other Central Texas towns it offered little of note. About eighty to ninety frame houses, painted white, stood on several broad, straight unpaved streets. Among them were six to eight stores and three or four saloons. Most of the houses looked rather dilapidated and the place needed a ''new start" apparently (as the Americans say) to keep it from losing its appearance of a town altogether. The location of the town was not badly chosen, as it was situated on a fruitful, small plain on which mesquite trees grew, and near the fifty to sixty feet high steep banks of the Colorado. The city was named after a German, Baron von Bastrop, who had planned an extensive German colonization here at the time when the first American settlements were still under Mexican rule. He bought a large tract of land for this purpose, but death prevented him from carrying out his plans.

Prior to the founding of Austin the city was for a long time the most northern settlement in the Colorado Valley and as such was constantly harassed by the Indians. It was abandoned several times for this reason. In the course of the day we continued our journey to Austin. The character of the country along this stretch remained more or less the same. Sand hills overgrown with pine and oak alternated with small fertile valleys. The prospects for a corn crop were excellent everywhere.

Our camp on the next night was made about fifteen miles on the other side of the San Marcos, at a water hole called by the uninviting name of ''Alligator Hole." Alligators, however, did not molest us, but swarms of mosquitoes fell over us as soon as we lay down.

20. Overreached On All Sides : The Freedmen's Bureau Administrators in Texas, 1865-1868

by Richter, William L.

College Station, Tex. Texas A&M University Press, 1991.

In another case, an informant charged Captain Alex B. Coggeshall at the Bastrop agency of conspiring with his brother-in-law, Julius Schuetze, to provide laborers to planters for a kickback. Coggeshall's replacement uncovered the story, and accused Coggeshall of sloppy record-keeping to hide the evidence. Coggeshall admitted that he had married into the Schuetze family after coming to Bastrop as the bureau representative, that Julius Schuetze provided hands to many planters, and that he and his relatives had plantation interests in common. He conceded that "I was not born a clerk." But he denied any corruption. Later charges appeared in the Galveston Daily News, but evidently nothing could be proven.

Another agent who had lost his left arm, this time at Chancellorsville while an officer with the famous Berdan Sharpshooters, Captain William H. Horton served the bureau at Wharton, Dallas, and Bastrop. His wound never stopped him from rendering a good account of himself, until his greed got the better of him, and he was forced to resign for accepting bribes.

Just before his resignation as assistant commissioner, Kiddoo sent Porter on an inspection tour of Columbus, La Grange, and Bastrop. Griffin so liked Porter's report on matters at the Bastrop office that he gave Porter the troubled agency for his own. Porter had a rough time at Bastrop. He faced a prolonged hassle with a local tough, William J.A. Bell, and his son, Willis, over their shooting of a Negro. No one would arrest the Bells, and the elder man rode about town defying Porter to act. When Bell threatened twice in one day to shoot the subassistant commissioner, Porter managed to get some soldiers to arrest him. He fined the old man fifty dollars. Bell refused to pay, said Porter later, until he spent two hours in jail thinking it over. Since Bell quarreled with everyone, local authorities decided to appoint him deputy sheriff, much to Porter's disgust. In his new job, Porter said, Bell assisted the persecutors of Unionists to escape. Bell still maintained that he would force Porter to refund his fine or else kill the subassistant commissioner. Yet he was defended by a large portion of the town, including ex-agent Alex B. Coggeshall and Throckmorton's lieutenant governor, George W. Jones. Porter figured that Bell gave him more trouble than all the rest of his subdistrict combined. When the subassistant commissioner was taken to court on a matter growing out of the Bell case, he decided that he had had enough. After receiving immunity from prosecution as a Federal employee doing his assigned job, Porter resigned his commission and went North.

Although Steinberg was caught rather quickly, Reynolds was not so lucky in the case of William H. Horton, the one-armed subassistant commissioner at Bastrop. Horton suffered the same fate as his predecessor, Byron Porter, at the hands of the same men, led by the notorious William J.A. Bell. By now, Bell's reputation was so bad at headquarters that Horton could not accept a ride out to Bell's plantation to inspect the conditions of the freedmen without being accused of consorting with a known felon. Bell continued his reign of terror against blacks and Union men. His arrest in one case led to a guilty verdict and a one-cent fine, much to Horton's disgust.

Bell was not alone in his misdeeds. Justice of the Peace W.T. Allen was rumored to have raped a freedwoman who worked for him. Nothing was done. Horton protested, but not even Governor Pease thought the case could be prosecuted successfully. Murders were common on the county roads. Prisoners escaped from the jail regularly. Concerned by Horton's troubles, Reynolds sent Sinclair to nearby Bastrop to assist him in two sticky cases. The first involved a murderer and cattle rustler whose friends threatened to break him out of jail. Reynolds wanted the man transferred to Austin, but Sinclair thought the trip too hazardous to attempt. Instead, the inspector had a troop detachment sent to Bastrop to secure the jail for the civil authorities.

In the second matter, a defendant would not pay a fifty-dollar fine for contempt of court, involving his refusal to be arrested by the local sheriff. Horton said that the sheriff had been lackadaisical in his duties or the incident could not have occurred. The sheriff wanted the support of the army to arrest such a dangerous fugitive. Sinclair placed the sheriff on probation for his refusal to act and ordered the army to assist him in the arrest. After the matter was successfully concluded, Sinclair released the sheriff from his bond. 9

bout this same time, Horton was greatly embarrassed on a personal level when Commissioner Oliver O. Howard's ambulance broke down opposite town as the general was going back to Washington on his only trip to Texas during Reconstruction. Howard's driver could not rouse the ferryman, and the general and his driver had to spend the night in the ambulance. Horton said that the real problem was that the general's driver had pushed the horses too fast and they both played out. One never recovered from the trip and died. Horton took Howard personally to the steamboat wharf at Columbus to continue his journey. Shortly after this incident, Horton was told to turn his records over to the despised Judge Allen, and report to Austin.

After Beath grumpily complied with Reynolds's orders, the general sent him to Bastrop, which needed an agent more desperately even than Cotton Gin. When Beath arrived, the town believed that it had run off Byron Porter and Horton before him, and now it was Beath's turn to fly. But Beath was a tough man with seven years' military experience behind him, and he fought instead of running. Reynolds warned Beath that he could not have military assistance and to stay out of matters that should have been settled by his predecessors, but Beath bulled ahead with what he thought was right. He set a black defendant free from the city jail, because he thought him wrongly accused and unfairly denied bail. Judge W.T. Allen, the man Horton had accused of raping a freedwoman, threatened Beath in public, and loudly damned Congress, General Reynolds, and the bureau. Beath refused to fight him, although many blacks said that they would back up the subassistant commissioner, because he feared a race riot was exactly what the judge wanted.

A few nights later, Allen's carriage house went up in smoke. The fire was prevented from spreading throughout the town only by a providential rainstorm. Allen accused Beath of starting the fire. The judge said that Beath was so objectionable as the bureau representative in Bastrop that he and other allegedly loyal military appointees to civil office would resign in protest. Allen and his friends claimed that Beath had threatened to burn the town, and spent most of his time drinking in a saloon with an army buddy. Beath, for his part, denied that he had started the fire. He begged Reynolds to remove Allen and his cronies from office and give Bastrop a decent local government. Reynolds refused to back Beath, who resigned his position. But the end of the bureau a week later made the whole argument moot. Beath left Bastrop and secured an appointment as the Federal postmaster at Weatherford, close to his old Sixth Cavalry stamping grounds

Harriett Robinson's mother's master was Samuel W. Simms, who with his wife, Julia, was recorded in the 1860 census as having real estate worth $14,000 and having a personal estate, including nineteen slaves, valued at $14,650. Samuel W. Simms became prominent in local affairs, built and operated steamboats, helped to organize the Bastrop Military Academy, and promoted railway construction. The master for the interviewee's father was Eli C. M. (Meke) Smith, who with his wife, Harriet E. M. Smith, was recorded by the census enumerator in i86o as having real estate worth 46,500 and a personal estate, including thirty-four slaves, valued at $54,870. Overseer Daniel Ivory was recorded by the census as residing only two dwellings away from planter Smith (Kenneth Kesselus, History of Bastrop County, Texas, 1846–1865, 26, 32, 38–40, 48–49, 64–65, 70, 74, 85, 92, 161; Census of 1860, Population Schedules, Bastrop County, 1, 61; Census of 1860, Slave Schedules, Bastrop County, 1, 8).

23. Alamo Legacy : Alamo Descendants Remember the Alamo

by Jackson, Ron.

Austin, Tex. Eakin Press, 1997.

Cottle's uncle, George Washington Cottle, rode into the Alamo with thirty-one other volunteers from Gonzales in March of 1836. The news of his uncle's death came to Zebulon months later. The story told to Zebulon and other family members was of George vowing to never let the Mexican soldiers get their hands on the garrison's ammunition supply. He was said to have been found dead in the magazine room of the Alamo chapel.

In 1835 Warnell became a resident of Bastrop, Texas, where he hooked up with Edward Burleson. Warnell lived with Burleson and tended his horses. Folks called Warnell a jockey, and not merely for his ability to ride a thoroughbred. He knew horses, talked about them all the time, and more important to his livelihood, knew where to find buyers for his stolen horses. He died with the distinction of being the only defender to leave the battle alive.

Pigtailed Katie Jennings was just ten years old when her mother, Catherine, hoisted her onto the family's best horse in March of 1836. Little did the youngster know she would become the Paul Revere of the Texas Revolution. Catherine had just learned that the Mexican Army, led by dictator Santa Anna, had captured the Alamo. She wondered if her husband, Gordon C. Jennings, had survived the battle. He had joined the Alamo garrison shortly before the December 11, 1835, battle at Bexar, leaving his wife and their four children behind at their cabin near the town of Bastrop.

Since Connell was widowed in 1834, his eldest daughter, Elizabeth, became head of the household in Bastrop. Siblings William, James, George, and Mary Ann intently listened to Elizabeth when they heard the news of the advancing Mexican Army. The Alamo had fallen and the Mexicans were coming.

David Cook Connell's future wife, Sarah Jane Clark, would also encounter the danger of the revolution. Sarah was a nine-year-old at the time of the Alamo's fall. She was living with her mother, Mary Brisbin Clark Deleplain, and her stepfather, Absalom C. Deleplain, when news of the Alamo slaughter reached their Mina home.

Since the two families were the "outside settlers" in the area, the Hornsbys and Wilbargers became close friends. They were also joined by a common bond of danger since this frontier region was on the extreme fringe of Comanche country.

At this time Gonzales, Wilson and DeWitt counties were living under a threat of violence because of the Sutton-Taylor Feud. This war was triggered in March 1868 at Bastrop when Deputy William Sutton killed cousins Charlie and Buck Taylor; the first victim was accused of stealing cattle and Buck died when he sought revenge. The sons of Creek Taylor then became rebels much as Wes Hardin and began to best Union soldiers in the area while Jack Helm, a captain in the state police, organized some fifty gunmen into the "Regulators" to fight the Taylors. When William Sutton joined him the group became known as the Sutton Party.

Excerpt: The first Baptist church actually formed in Texas was the Providence Church, formed on March 29, 1834, on the Colorado River below the present town of Bastrop, with Abner Smith as the first pastor. Plum Grove. The Plum Grove community was located on the Colorado River, just below the present town of Bastrop. After he left Washington, Morrell located in that area where he began to preach in the home of William Scallorn. In April, 1839, Robert G. Green and Asael Dancer led in forming a church at Plum Grove, with Dancer as the first pastor. Dancer had been associated with the Primitive Baptists, and occasionally Abner Smith, the anti-missionary colleague of Daniel Parker, preached at Plum Grove and for a time the church included both missionary and anti-missionary members. Morrell also preached occasionally at Smith's Providence church, and baptized converts for them (including Mrs. Dancer) when the pastor was disabled. Several other converts presented themselves for baptism in the Plum Grove church.

Paul C. Bell had the unique role for several years of serving as pastor of both the Anglo and Mexican churches in Bastrop, dividing his time between them. He resigned the Anglo church to devote his full time to educational ministry among the Mexicans. He led in forming the Instituto Bautista Mexicana de Bastrop, emphasizing both secular and religious training. The first building was erected on a site donated by Mrs. S. J. Orgain, an Anglo member of FBC Bastrop. She also gave $700 to start the building. Bell won the support of Mexicans and partial support from the Home Mission Board but, for some reason, the BGCT never looked with any great favor upon his school. The Mexican Baptist Institute was closed in 1941 when Bell, whose wife had just died, left to become a missionary in Panama.

Extract: (William Alexander Wallace, i.e. Bigfoot Wallace) After visiting the former home of the pirate Jean Lafitte, he traveled on to Bastrop on the Colorado River, then settled for a time at Moore's Fort (La Grange). He would later recall that a man named Boone operated a saloon there and sold whiskey so watered that it froze one cold winter. One night William was warming himself in the cabin of a man named Woods twelve miles above La Grange when a stranger came in, bent over the fire, then removed a strange-looking fur cap. Wallace noticed his raw, sore, bald scalp and remarked, "My friend, excuse me, but what is the matter with your head?" The stranger, Josiah Wilbarger, matter-of-factly replied, "I have been scalped by the Indians."
