Signers of Petition to Create Gillespie County
Decenber 15, 1847

 
    This was taken from the June 1997 issue of the "Gillespian".  Pat Klein and Wilbur Crenwelge presented the March program (1997) on Petitioners who presented the request for the establishment of Gillespie County.  The petition to create Gillespie County was presented in December of 1847 and was established out of Bexar County by an act of the Texas Legislature in 1848.

    With the County's sesquicentennial coming up (1998), the project brought before the members was to develop information on the descendants of these petitioners. Petitioners on which little information was available in the census or tax records of that ere are marked with an "*".  It was asked in the June 1997 issue that anyone who has any information about these surnames or families with these surnames, to please come forward and let them know.
