ANCESTRY ANTHOLOGY PREVIEW #4: NOTEWORTHY NEWS ARTICLE #1: PROVINCE OF TEXAS (1830)




GOOD MORNING FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!!

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOTICED THE DECREASE IN MY POSTS LATELY, I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I I HAVE SPENT THE LAST FEW DAYS RESEARCHING ON NEWSPAPERS.COM FOR ARTICLES BECAUSE I HAVE DECIDED THAT MY ANCESTRY ANTHOLOGY WILL ALSO INCLUDE "NOTEWORTHY NEWS  ARTICLES" ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS, WITH A  SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON THE HISTORY OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN THE EARLY HISTORY; WHICH INCLUDES ITS BEGINNINGS AS A COLONY OR PROVINCE OF MEXICO!!


THE ARTICLE BELOW IS PART 1 OF A RE-POST OF AN ARTICLE FROM A NEW ORLEANS NEWSPAPER ABOUT A MAN WHO KEPT AN EXTENSIVE JOURNAL DURING HIS TRAVELS....IT IS VERY INTERESTING BECAUSE IT DESCRIBES THE LOCAL GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS; CLIMATES, AND HIS PERCEPTION OF THE PEOPLE AND WHY THEY DECIDED TO COME AND/OR STAY IN TEXAS!!


IT INCLUDES INFORMATION ABOUT A PLANTATION WHICH HAD SLAVES WORKING IN THE FIELDS

AND THEIR IMPACT ON THE ECONOMY OF THE COLONY!


HE EVEN INCLUDES A DESCRIPTION OF STEPHEN F. AUSTIN, " FOUNDER OF THE "SAN FELIPE" COLONY WHICH BECAME OUR GREAT CAPITAL CITY
AND MY HOME TOWN OF AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA!!
