Descendants of the Yeamans Family as well as several other early Matagorda County families, participated in the 2007 Goliad Massacre Living History Program. They had attended the program in previous years and were concerned when they discovered that Matagorda County wasn't represented with a flag in the march from La Bahia to the memorial site.

Dodie Bradley made the Matagorda County flag seen in the pictures below and carried it in the 2007 March.

She and her sisters wore period clothes for the 2007 program and participated in the march in memory of family members

Elias & Erastus Yeamans

who were killed at Goliad.
