Author: Philip Haythornthwaite, illustrator: Paul Hannon
48 pages, paperback, Osprey
In 1823 Texas was opened to American settlement; over the next 12 years thousands took advantage of the opportunity. During this time the corrupt Santa Anna rose to power. A dishonest and ruthless politician, thief, compulsive gambler, opium addict and liar, he nevetheless gained a measure of popular support and set about destroying federalism. Conflict with the American settlers ('Texians') became inevitable, a conflict which included the legendary Battle of the Alamo. Philip Haythornwaite covers the story of the War of Texan Independence in a volume backed by a wealth of illustrations and photographs, including eight full page colour plates by Paul Hannon.

J. W. and Me: The Small Town Texas Experience, Barbara Montgomery

12 J. W. and Me: The Small Town Texas Experience
Barbara Montgomery
2007, 5˝x8˝, paper, 106 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
The author, a retired municipal judge, set out to fill these pages with a light-hearted account of dispensing justice in Heath, a very small Texas town, in the early 1970s. Like most small towns, everyone knew their neighbors, the Saturday night drunk, the wife-beater, the pilferer, the adulterer—all the honest and not-so-honest residents that make up any small town. However, in researching background material, a darker side of local history emerged—a crime so terrible that no one wanted to talk about it, even in the twenty-first century. There was a lynching in Rockwall in 1909. This “forgotten” piece of history is included here. J. W. Cullins, the first chief of police for the town, always called himself a peace officer. He did not police; he kept the peace using a mixture of good judgment and common sense. As fellow members of law enforcement, J. W. and the author dealt with a variety of people and their problems: disgruntled speeders, joyful drunks, indignant parents. Court was held in a variety of unusual places, including a shared table at a free rabies clinic for dogs. Tales of Barbara Venton’s Fulbright experiences in Israel and Korea; and visits to numerous countries around the world are woven throughout. Well-written, often humorous, sometimes dramatic, and always interesting; this book will be difficult to put down.

13 Texas and Oklahoma Births, Deaths and Marriages from the Fort Worth Record: November, 1903 to November 1904
Bruce Bumbalough
2008, 8˝x11, paper, index, 252 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
The Forth Worth Record started as a morning paper in 1903 in Fort Worth, Texas. The paper reported news from across Texas, Indian Territory, Oklahoma Territory, the nation, and the world. It provided coverage of the Russo-Japanese war, the presidential election of 1904, and the 1904 World's Fair, as well as extensive coverage of the railroads and their business activities, and much more. However, it is the vital statistics reported in the paper that are of particular interest to genealogists, and the abstracts herein are limited to births, deaths and marriages. Abstracts are arranged chronologically and surnames appear in capital letters as an aid to researchers. Birth records typically include: gender of the child, father's full name, and date of birth. Death records typically include: name of the deceased, date of death, and place of death. Some death records may also list the name of a relative, the cause of death and/or place of burial. Marriage records typically include: the full names of the bride and groom, date of marriage, and place of marriage. Some marriage records may also list the name of the official performing the ceremony and/or the name of the bride's father. A full name index adds to the value of this work.

14 Collin County: Pioneering In North Texas
Capt. Roy F. Hall and Helen Gibbard Hall
(1975), 2004, 8˝x11, paper, 316 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This excellent and highly sought-after county history and collection of over 200 genealogies has been in constant demand since it was first published in 1975. It is a virtual encyclopedia of information about Collin County, Capt. Hall having used his resources as a local newspaper columnist and historian to gather material from old newspapers, archives, and personal acquaintances with some of the old pioneers. The book contains more than 100 photographs of pioneer people and scenes, thumbnail biographies of several hundred pioneer settlers, a list of old post offices, and a county map showing thirty-three historical sites including ghost towns, early villages, and Indian massacres, plus the locations of 127 early schools. It was during his career in the 1950s as a newspaper columnist for the McKinney Examiner that Capt. Hall began to collect material and write a history of his county. He and Mrs. Hall spent two years "on the road," researching and locating the site of every battle fought on Texas soil. Well-known and admired in the community (he was later elected mayor), he received letters from readers who sent him biographies and treasured family photographs. After Capt. Hall died in 1970, Mrs. Hall, a retired school teacher and local history enthusiast, took on the huge task of organizing the accumulated information into this first-rate book. Penned in the narrative style of a good feature writer are the stories of Spotted Tail, the Kiowa chief who protected area towns from Plains Indian attacks during the Civil War; the life and customs of the early settlers; the Dallas-Sherman Interurban; and of course, the county's pioneers and prominent people: from Collin McKinney, for whom both the town and county were named, to Audie Murphy, Hollywood hero and highest decorated U.S. soldier of World War II. It is hard to imagine a more complete county history. A book could be written about the colorful life of Capt. Hall, who was born in 1884 in his great-grandfather's house just north of McKinney. He served in the army before and during World War I, was a bodyguard for President Teddy Roosevelt, played professional baseball for the Cincinnati Red Legs, was a motorman on the old Interurban in McKinney, worked on a ranch in West Texas, and taught school. He became a feature writer for the San Antonio Express, and later a columnist for the McKinney Daily Courier-Gazette and the McKinney Examiner. He belonged to several civic associations, and he organized the Collin County Historical Committee in 1956.
