Where we have yet to hear a discouraging word.

Unsolicited, uncensored and occasionally outrageous comments on and about Texas from the people who know it best.

 
 

 

<< Previous page .......... ( Weeping Angel at Scottsville Youree Family Cemetery continued ) The momument, according to oral legends I heard from childhood is that the chapel at Scottsville was built as a tribute to the son commemorated by the tombstone. However, I'd confirm this with Harrison County Historican. - J. Chatham

Subject: Garza,Denton County,Texas
I have a copy of a Declaration for Oringinal Invalid Pension stating John W. Blann was a resident of Garza County of Denton State of Texas. I cannot find anything on the town of Garza.I have found Garza County, but that doesn't help me.John W. Blann born 1833 born in Ray County, Missouri died 8-5-1885 in Denton County,Texas married to Malissa (Melissa) D. Robinson.1882 is when he filed for this pension and it stated he had been a resident of Garza for 5 years. So he had to have been there in 1877.Can you help me? - Cathy

Subject: A goofy texas question
A few years ago I stopped at a roadside park in Far West Texas, very close to the New Mexico border, located in the middle of NOWHERE. The interesting and humorous thing about the park was signs posted everywhere warning of rattlesnake nests. (What a great welcome, what a great location). I failed to take a picture of this truly unique park. Seen it ? Been there ? Got the T-Shirt ? Would love to have a memento of my stop there. - D. stephens

The location of the roadside park with beware of rattlesnakes signs, I think, (memory... download...crash...human disk full.. error) is between Hobbs, NM and Seminole TX, on HWY 62. - D. Stephens
