Historical Commission gifted document

The Gonzales Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas gave the DeWitt County Historical Commission a reprint of the 1904 Texas State Historical Commission publication of an article on DeWitt’s Colony by Ethel Zivley Rather. In 1825 Green DeWitt was granted permission by the Mexican government to settle Anglo families on land that stretched from south of Cuero to north of Gonzales. The publication recounts the history of those land grants and the colonists who settled here. Marge Kacir made the presentation to Peggy Ledbetter, chairman of the DeWitt County Historical Commission, at its recent meeting. Other commission members present are shown, from left, Diana Bartosh, Suzanne Pleasant, Barbara Cavanaugh, Carol Martin, Emily Davis, Margie Bell and Margaret Bluntzer. The book can be used at the DeWitt County Archives for research by the public. Contributed photo.

Sutton-Taylor author speaks at library

 

The Cuero Public Library sponsored Chuck Parsons, author of “The Sutton–Taylor Feud: The Deadliest Blood Feud in Texas” on April 22 for their annual speaker night.
 
With standing room only, Parsons gave a presentation of the characters in the Sutton-Taylor feud to the 85 plus people that attended. Some of the audience identified themselves as family members of the Suttons or the Taylors peaceably and with some laughter.
 
Parsons briefly covered the time span of the feud, 30 years; the distance that the feud covered, as far north as Denton to the coast of Indianola, west into New Mexico and as far east starting in Georgia. He also covered the multiple families affected and had identified 83 men killed that were recorded.
