We are located in Houston, Texas and are proud of our city. Tales of the brave citizens that settled this wild land are fascinating and for the most part true. In our Texas Club, (which meets the 2nd Thursday of each month here at Becker's Books) we discuss and research these men and women. The surnames of people we are currently researching are Burke, Bringhurst, Hudgins, Forsgard, Cushing, Moore and Bagby. (All residents of Houston in the mid 1800's) One goal of ours is to publish our research and support the Handbook of Texas with accurate information about some of the lesser known early settlers of Houston and the surrounding area.

The website is a great resource to use in completing our goal. This site has loads of valuable, detailed information about our fair city. There is also a chat area to go to and discuss this topic with others. We are flexible and if you go there and want to discuss Dallas or San Antonio we probably will oblige. Please email us and let us know if you are interested in more details.
