help the "Texicans" win their Independence from Mexico. After Texas became a
Republic and on the way to statehood they really "popped the whip" and
high-tailed it cross the Misi'sip! This site concentrates on the Andrews and Jackson

find your "lost" ancestors among those who went through the extreme difficulties
(hostile Injuns and all sorta critters) in establishing the Republic of Texas and then

the links - here for you to find your families who mighta come to receive up to and
sometimes over 4000 acres of land (if they were here in 'nuf time), as well as learn more
about my stompin' ground since my ole' Sam'l Andrews came crossed the border in 1835. Oh
yeah - check out the Civil War link - many came into Texas after the "war between the
states" and were settled long 'nuf to qualify for Texas Confederate War Pensions
