Comments:


John PYLE and his family migrated to Texas abt 1835.  He applied for land from Stephen F. Austin and He was granted a league and labor (4000+ acres) in Montgomery Co.  His son Joseph was also granted 1/2 a league and labor (2000+) acres.  An additional half a grant was granted to his other sons.  John McFarland(son-in-law) was also give a full grant.  John and other members of his family also volunteered for service in Sam Houston's Army and were granted additional land for their service.  In 1853/54, they sold the land in Montgomery Co., and moved north to land they purchased in the vicinity of Kemp, TX.  (See the listing for Pyle's Prairie Cemetery)
