I thought you might enjoy this newspaper article since you posted the photo of D. C. Cowan.
The Weekly Democratic Statesman, Austin, TX, February 22, 1872
Indians in Llano and Brunet.
On Tuesday night last, early in the evening, the Indians passed down to Llano county, through Burnet, and came to within three and a half miles above Bluffton, and what is there called the “Colorado Saline.” They shot at William Miller, the arrow striking him on the side, passing through his clothes and at most making but a slight wound. These same Indians have been seen as late as Thursday last, the 15th inst., in the Crownover settlement, but what damage has been done in the way of murdering and stealing we have not learned. These facts have been furnished us by D. C. Cowan, Esq., an early settler – in fact the first of the Fisher and Miller Colony – in Llano County, and is a frontiersman of undoubted grit, and a Democrat of the first water.

Please remove your bio from that of James.
Please add your sources. 27 years experience - (minus) sources = (equals) 0 years experience + (plus) hand-on-flippin'-hip assertions. Please either add your sources or give some clues (anything?) as to where you got your information. Otherwise, too, it appears as though you were there and are now very, very old.
|Wanda R G A||RE: Gass Family|
Donnie, I have Gass individuals that married into some of my Duncan and Babb families. Anyone in particular that you are looking for.
|Bob Myers||Myers, Moyer, Moyers, etc.|
Donnie, I appreciate all the work you have been
doing re: genealogy. My family stems from Peter
Moyers in Wythe Co., Va. who died around 1816.
I would have to look up the date, I have his will.
If my memory serves me correctly, Barbara Moyer
was one of my ancestors. as I believe she was the
sister of John Myers who married Rachel Harsh.
I saw the Confederate flag on Pvt. William M. Myers
website. I just discovered that he fought in the
Civil War from the South. I knew that Joseph, his
brother did. I am going to send for a certificate
on William M. Myers, I have a picture of William
somewhere, he is on a porch in Lee Co., Va.
P. S. Do you know anything about Samuel B. Myers'
wife, Eliza D. Stubblefield? I have searched all
over NE Texas for her grave without success. Of
course, I have been to Samuel B. Myers grave in
Rockwall, Texas. My father was born in Heath,
Rockwall Co., Texas in 1910.
|Don Bogart||Oak view Cemetery|
If you look up you loved ones names in Oakview cemetery just call the office and get their locations I will take pictures for you. You should get a location and plot number. Ex. (Lot N Plot 106)
They are very helpful at the office. If you get that info let me know and I'll have pics within a couple of days.
A special thanks to Jinnie Wilson at City Hall for giving me the site info. The headstone was not there when I visited the Sharp plot earlier. I assume it was recently placed there. Glad I could be of help.
|Belford Carver||Mary Sharp|
Today looked for this one but no success. Several Sharps buried here. Any other details available to help me locate it?
|Kathy (Posey) Meadows||feildon widener|
Thanks for the photo.
Oh well, I saw her memorial a week ago in Ga. I am not finding it now. Excuse me if I appear too curious, what did she die from, and was she married to Press when she died? I stayed with Press and Tennie for six weeks when I was a teenager to help watch the younger children. Tennie was ill and had To be in the hospital. P ress was a good man. He called me girl. They both were. So long Donnie.
