Dear Charlies Wyly,
I am interested to know some information regarding these early families
that you have mentioned in your
"More "Anglo" and German settlers in Erath County had Eastern Indian
roots not obvious or worn as a chip on the shoulder- in fact it was
mentioned only to friends.
John R. Baylor and his Central Texas Rangers (Sometimes a legal posse-
sometime Vigilantes) drove these friendly defenders to Oklahoma- Caddo-
Chickasha area via Fort Phantom Hill, Abilene, then went to Arizona and
became governor. "
Can you tell me where these settlers came from? Virginia and Tennessee?
From Gulf ports newly arrived in the US? What were some of the family
surnames? Were these families farmers or merchants, blacksmiths,
tinkers, tailors, or preachers?
Were these people driven out... is that what you are saying, by the
Central Texas Rangers... the group of
ex Confederate misfits?
Please elaborate, as you are so good at this. We really do enjoy your
