Dr. Robert T. Hill, Texas' Own Geologist
Account of Dr. Hill, a man ripe in honors and scientific achievement and an orphan of the Civil War at five, young Hill turned toward Texas at 15 and stopped at Comanche, "the last town of the frontier and the roughest and toughest of that age." While there, he found time to study the geology and topography of the region, which was "different from any other then recognized in America" but couldn't find an explanation for the rock formation of the region. This study, however, led to the identification of the link in the geologic column which he named the "Comanche Series." This is his story.

The Bedias Trail In Angelina County
By Thomas Y. Banks, Tyler, Texas
The trail derived its name from the Bedias Indians, whose usual habitat was along the lower Trinity river, a likely starting point for the known history of the territory now embraced within the limits of Angelina county. This trail led from the lower Trinity river to the Spanish missions and settlements in the vicinity of Nacogdoches, and traversed Angelina county in a northeasterly direction, seemingly following the general course of the line of the H. E. & W. T. Railway, according to the map in Prof. H. E. Bolton's "Texas in the Middle Eighteenth Century."

Early Settlers Of Atascosa County
SELLER’S NOTE: HERE IS SOME VERY EXCELLENT EARLY HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF ATASCOSA COUNTY, TEXAS.
During the days of Indian raids in the west and southwest, Atascosa county did not escape, and has her bloody chapter in the frontier history of Texas. The county was created from Bexar in 1856, and named for Atascosa Creek. The Navarros, Salinas, and others established stock ranches inside the present limits of the county at an early date, but were broken up during the Texas revolution and the Navarros moved further east and established ranches near the present town of Seguin, in Guadalupe county.
In 1853 permanent settlements began to be made, and by the time the county was organized quite a number of settlers were located, among whom were Justo Rodriguez, Judge J. S. Fern, Calvin Horton, the Askins, Yarbers, Tumlinsons, Brights, Slaughters, "Scotch" Jim Brown, Franks, Spears, James Lowe, Charles Hood, Old Man Ferry and Dan Arnold. This is their story and of others who were important in the early settlement of the county.

Don Erasmo Seguin, A Texas Patriot
By J. M. Woods, San Antonio, Texas
The town of Seguin was so named to commemorate the record of Don Erasmo Seguin, of whom the historian Thrall said, "He was a high-toned gentleman of truly honorable and patriotic sentiments." In 1831 a colonist, located his league and labor of land, upon a portion of which the City of Seguin is located, moved onto it in 1832 and built the first house on the banks of Walnut Branch (the former name of the City of Seguin) in 1833. And so begins this account of the earliest days of Seguin and the man whose name the town bears.

Ernst Hermann Altgelt, Founder Of Comfort
By Mrs.. Ida Altgelt Schweppe
It took men and women of strong will and hardy build to willingly forsake a civilized country and venture into unknown wilderness with no other aim than to enjoy freedom and the hope for a better future.. Such a man was Ernst Hermann Altgelt, son of a German official privy counsellor in Duesseldorf. His father, a man highly honored in his community, had been army chaplain and tutor of the two sons of the reigning prince of Prussia for several years. He sailed from Bremen to Texas via New Orleans on a small sailboat in the year 1852, settling on Cypress Creek, (then part of Bexar county – Kerr and Kendall county were settled in 1856 and 1862). The town of Comfort was soon to be born. This is the story.
