FINDING DESCENDANTS OF THE SIGNERS OF THE TEXAS DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
In anticipation of the 175th anniversary
of the signing of the Texas Declaration
of Independence, the Star of the Repub-
lic Museum at Washington-on-the-Brazos
launched the Adopt-a-Signer project in
2010 to find descendants of the brave souls
who signed their names to this treasured
document. (See sidebar on page 12 for a list
of the signers.) By recording and preserving
the lineages of the signers, the genealogi-
cal records would insure that these Texas
heroes will never be forgotten.
