    Mr. Gibson has driven all over Texas many times in search of the 1936 Texas Centennial Markers. Here are a few of his stories:

  • Pictograph marker
  • My Visit to the Pictograph Centennial Marker in Concho County in January 2012 6-1-12
    Words, and even pictures, cannot begin to tell what my visit to the site of the 1936 Texas Centennial Pictograph Marker was like.

  • "I Want to See Your Machete" 5-29-12
    It was a momentous occasion for me... I was finally going to meet Ruthie Cade. Literally minutes before, I had been able to find, after a previous failed attempt, the gray granite Centennial Marker placed at the grave of Perry Alsbury in a hidden, overgrown area within earshot of I-10. That marker was the 1,089th marker I have seen of the 1,136 placed way back in 1936 to memorialize the multi-year celebration of Texas' Independence from Mexico. Here I was, after having seen nearly 96% of that total, meeting the one person who made a lot of that search possible.

    The Journey Begins

    “Do you want these?” My sister, Peggy, had walked into our partnership office with three Walmart bags under each arm. Each bag contained a year of Texas Highway Magazines. She was clearing out her closet and decided not to keep them any longer. Rather than just toss them out, she asked me if I wanted them.

    For the past several years three of my sisters and I had taken road trips around Texas. Peggy did all the planning while I did the driving. Ann and Betty Jean tagged along not caring particularly where we went but just enjoying our time together. Peggy used the magazines as a resource of places to visit. On different trips we went to the usual tourist spots like Sea World, The Big Bend, Galveston, Port Aransas and Jefferson. It was in Jefferson that I first began to really appreciate the uniqueness of Texas, but it was no big deal to me at the time.

    Peggy had decided she didn’t need to keep the magazines any more, and not using better judgment, I said that we could just put them in our office attic. About that time, I began reading James Michener’s novel, “Texas”, so it was natural that in a few months I began to drag out a few copies of the old magazines to see if I could find anything familiar that I might have read about in the book.

    That’s how it all started. Now, ten years later I have driven over 120,000 miles in Texas and taken over 70,000 pictures of everything from old country churches to courthouses and jails to bridges and signs, and finally of nearly all of the Texas Centennial markers that were placed all around the state back in 1936. But that’s a whole ‘nother story.

    One can only wonder what I would be doing right now if my sister had just tossed those magazines without asking me about them. I’d probably be working on a stamp collection or such but not having nearly as much fun.

    - Barclay Gibson, April 2013
    Two Poems by David Knape:

    Bar-Clay

    God was thinking
    one fine day,
    why not another
    man of clay

    so he took some parts
    he'd thrown away,
    and formed them into
    a bar of clay

    he rolled them up
    into a batch,
    though the parts
    would not all match

    still it was good
    in its own way,
    God kept the thing
    named it Bar-Clay

    now Bar-Clay
    wasn't satisfied,
    he wanted
    something else to try

    God got upset
    at Bar-Clays nerve,
    sent him to Texas
    with time to serve

    now Barclay's doomed
    his dreaded fate,
    to ride the backroads
    of the state

    and in his travels
    can be found
    forever lost
    and turned around

    yet who can say
    his penance done
    Bar-Clay's the one
    who's havin' fun

    for Bar-Clay now
    accepts his fate,
    travelin' the state
    for Texas Escapes!

    He plied the highways
    always blessed
    to travel Texas from
    one end to the next,
    An inquiring mind
    the lone pretext
    to photograph
    what might come next.

  • Readers' Comments:
  • "I love everything about what you do-from the concept to the execution. I will be trying to keep up with your work. I'm anxious to see what you do next." - Dianna, Sept. 11, 2013

  • "You have some wonderful marker photos. There is so much information. I even learned some things about my home town of Taylor. Before taking my grandchildren on a family history tour, I found the picture on the internet of the Jackson County Texana marker you photographed. We descend from both F.F. Wells and his son-in-law Clark Owen. I also descend from the Brackenridges of Jackson County, so we wanted to see the marker. It had been temporally moved to lie under a tree at the administration building, something of a let down." - Genie, Sugar Grove, Illinois, August 02, 2013

  • "Thank you for sharing your photos taken at Cedar Hill, Floyd County, Texas. I grew up there and although there is mostly nothing left there, your photos were fantastic shots of familiar landmarks. Thank you! I am thoroughly enjoying looking at even more of your photos of familiar places. Thanks so much for all your efforts." - Stephanie, July, 2013

  • "I came across your photos during a search on Roaring Springs Cemetery. My dad is buried there and I have not been there. I plan on going in the near future but in the meantime these photos are precious to me. They give me a sense of connection to my dad and thus means so much to me. Thank you so much!" - Mona, May 2013
