Washington county, or rather the section
of country now embraced irt Washington
county, notwithstanding it is perhaps the
garden spot of the entire State of Texas, in
point of fertile soil, healthfulness of cli-
mate and beauty of scenery, seems to have
been overlooked by the Spaniards and
Mexicans who first settled this country; tor
while Sari Antonio, Goliad, San Saba and
San Gabriel in the west; and Nacogdoches
in the east, were receiving heavy immigaa-
tions, and notwithstanding the La Bahia
road, the main throughfare between the
west and the east, ran almost centrally
through the country, crossing the Brazos
about a mile below where the town of
Washington was afterward located, so that
they could not plead ignorance of this
beautiful section, it remained unsettled un-
til a comparatively recent date; in fact, it is
believed that there was never a Mexican set-
tlement in all this section until after Aus-
tin's colony was established, when a Mex-
ican garrison was located at Tenoxtitlan.
This is probably attributable to the fact
that the Mexicans were not an agricultural
people, and the rich farming lands of
Washington coun'.y offered them no attrac-
tions.
Previous to the revolution in 1835. this
territory w as but sparsely inhabited. About
1825, Captain John W. Hall came to the
Brazos and established a ferry at La Bahia
crossing. Among his neighbors were Andy
Robinson and Amos Gates. At a later
day. Major Ephraim Roddy.'Captain J. P.
Lynch,James R. Cook, ). R. Franklin
and others moved into the neighborhood.
Late in the year 1834 or early in 1835. the
town of Washington was founded by Cap-
tain lohn W.Hall and others. Among the
early merchants were Martin, Clow oc Co,,
(Robert I. Clow is still living, and is a clerk
in the Comptroller's office), Bailey, Gay &
Iloxie and Hood & Steele. 1 he town set-
tled up very rapidly, and on the first of
March the convention that declared the In-
dependence of Texas assembled, at this
place. At this late day, it is almost im-
possible to give the dates of settlements of
all the' different neighborhoods. So it
must suffice to say. that previous to 1835,
Captain Reynolds and a few neighbors,
among whom were Captain J. B* Chance,
Moses Cwnmmgs and the Clampetts, were
settled near Hidalgo. A little further w est
were Shubeal Marsh, his brothers-in-law.
Levi and John Pitts, the)Sewards, the Dal-
lases, etc" Then came Cole's settlement,
composed of the Whitesides. I)r. Asa
Hoxie. Capt. John Dix. Ptnkard. ar.d oth-
ers. The next place settled to the west
ward w as Hickory Point, where were the
Clays. Dr. James B. Miller, McCrocklin
and others.* Captain Horatio Chriesman
settled the next point above. He came to
the country along w ith the first of the orig-
inal "three hundred." He wa* one of the
most noted of the enrly settlers: was chiet
surveyor of Austin's colony, and was uni-
versally beloved by all who knew him.
He kept an open house to the traveling
public, and if ever he charged for a meal
of victuals, t he w riter never heard of it,
and he was one of Chriesnran's nearest
neighbors for a number of years. Captain
Chriesman and lus brothers-in-law, Pros-
per, Adolphus and Richard Hope, per-
formed their full duties as soldiers. They
were engaged in the campaign at San An-
tonio in 1835, and the'Hopes were in the
battle of San Jacinto. Richaul Hope has
raised a large family, and lives tw 0 miles
below Washington. Among the settlers
in Chriesman'sneighborhootf. were Ashley
R. Stevens, (who was killed at San Jacinto)
J. G. Wilkinson, Isham G. Belcher, Sam-
uel Brown, the Hawkins and Hills, S
R. Roberts, R. M. Williamson, Dr. George
W. Barnett, F. B. Gentry and others. Tne
next settlement to the westward of Chries-
man's, was in the neighborhood of what is
now known as Long Point.. It was settled
first by Robert Cloakey, with James Cox
as his neighbor. This place from the ear-
liest days was a noted stand for the travel-
ing public. At an early day, Cloakey sold
out to Asa Mitchell. Mitchell sold to Cap-
tain Matson, who was after-
wards killed by Mi'xhell. Captain
Fuller married the widow, and there are
but few of the old' settler^ who have not
stayed ail night at Fuller's and received the
very be-t for man and beast thnt the coun-
try afforded. To the westw ard of this, was
the Kerr settlement, now Union Hill, com-
posed of several families, among them
Sampson Connell, (who was Houston's
w agon master during the Sua Jacinto cam-
paign), Coleman, Burton, and perhaps one
or two othtfrs, David Ayres settled two
other familes south of Fuller's. Near him
resided Rev. John W. Kinney, ft celebrated
Methodist preacher in those days. The-
settlement at Tiger Point was composed of
Captain Phil H. Coe. the Henseleys, \;, W.
Petty, who was at San Jacinto, arid a few
others. On mill creek, Colonel William
Pettus, familliary alted/'Uncle; Buck Pet-
ttK" M. Fordtrand, J. p. Shelborne, and
otliurs resided. There was quite a settle-
ment along New YlVus creek to the mouth.
Among them am reiuembsred. the names of

in Richard Hope, a lad some five years my
senior. He lived av Capt. Chnesman's,
only a mile distant, and we were nearly al-
ways together. In fact I was about as
much at home at Chriesman's as at father's
house. Many a jolly hunt we had togeth-
er, especially in the spring-time. We were
confidents, and told each other all our little
love affairs. He was in love with mv cous-
in, and I in love vfcithhfs sister—both pret-
ty girls full of life and fun. We were too
modest to tell our love and courted by
proxy: he courted his sister for me, and I
my cousin for him. But our wooing d.d
not thrive, for both girls married other fel-
fows ;and I came to tha conclusion then,
that one must do hie«wn courting to suc-
ceed. Alas! like our love, they exist only
in memory. Both have been dead for
man) years.
My lady-love was a quaint genius and
said sonte very comical things. I remem-
ber one occasion. It was at a grammar
school, which a gentleman had opened in
the neighborhood, and which we bdtlv at-
tended. We were parsing from "Pope's
Universal Prayer", the lines:
'•This teach me mrife than hell to shun
That more than heaven pursue"
She brought us all down by parsing heav-
en tkus: "Heaven is a common noun;
third person, singular number, objective
case and connected to hell by the conjunc-
tion thin." m *
Returning to Dick Hope, I remembei;1
one spring morning when he,
Jackson Hill and myself started out on a
cattle hunt. They both were riding'fine
horses while I was mounted on a , clumsy
animal which I had borrowed frorti a neigh-
bor. Wfe had not traveled more than two
or three miles, when iome one pioposed a
race, which was instantly made up. The
road ran down a long gentle slope and up
a slight ascent beyond. We all three start-
ed abreast, at a break neck speed, my
S
In the fall p( 11134. my father took up his
residence at Gay Hill, in the Chriesman
neighborhood. Here I found
a companion
clumsy horse taking the lead and keeping
it till he reached the lowest ground at tfie
bottom of the slant, when he stumbled anil
fell turning a double somersault, throwing
me ten or firteen feet over his head and
falling on my leg. I^as severely bruised
and unable to walk w ithout limping for two
or three weeks. The fall broke the horse's
shoulder and w e had to leave him on the
ground, w here he afterwards died. Thi.,
was a terrible mishap, and we were afraid
to go home and tell that the accidcnt had
occurred in running a race. So we. unlike
Gereral Washington who could not tell a
lie, concocted a story for home consumption
eacli one pledging himself to stick to it.
The story was to the following effect; We
were riding gently along the road, when
we discovered a wolf crossing it. We im-
mediately gave chase with the intention of
running it down and roping it; but we had
not gone far when my horse stumbled and
fell, breaking his own shoulder and nearly
killing me. We all held to this story faith -
fully. Indeed, I am satisfied that I am
giving the true version of the accident for
the first time that it has ever been heard
For my own part, I told the lie so frequen-
tly, that I doubt the wolf-dory's being a
myth after all. At all events, I never think
f the accident that the imaginary wolf doe:,
not cross the road in my memory.
At this time, there cottkl not have been
over one hundred families in the whole te r-
ritory know n as Washington count)1. Vet
as sparse as the population was, it wa.-> be-
lieved that Washington furnished a greater
uota of troops than any other section ol
e country according to population. At
the first signal of the alarm, w hen the Mex-
ican detachment denffihded the surrender
of the cannon at Gonzales, in September,
1835, nearly every able bodied mar, jointd
the ranks : and the consequence was. that
one of the largest companies in the army
went from Washington. Of this company,
James G. Swisher was elected captain, and
Dr. G. W. Barnett Lieu'cnant. When
they reached Gonzales, the)' found the
Mexicans had retreated to San Antonio.
They followed on, joined the main army
and remained in the service during the en-
tire campaign. This company participated
in all the battles and skirmishes around
San Antonio. It likewise performed a
conspicuous part and was in the thickest
of the fray, at the battle called, the "Grass
Fight-' (so named in consequence of Gen-
eral Burleson having attacked a detachment
of two or three hundred Mexican soldiers,,
ur.der command of Col. Ugsftachea, who
were guarding a caravan of pack mules
loaded w ith may. or crass, en route for San
Antonio, to supply tne Mexican army wifb
forage.) There was hardly a day, while
the army lay around San Antonio that Capt
Swisher was not on aciive duty. At one
time .while riding at the head of a scouting
party, he was shot at by a Mexican from
the chapparaL The captain returned the
fire and killed the Mexican before he had
time to make his escape. Finally, when
Colonels Milam acd Johnson, on the fifth
of December, called tot volunteers to storm
the tow n, the compahv olmostto a man vol-
unteered: and from the fifth to the tenth,
day and night, were under fire. On the
third day of the seige, tne brave and lamen-
ted Col. Milam was instantly killed by a
shot in the forehead. He w as standing in
the yard, back of the Heremende House,
which yard was surrounded by a high wall
bullet proof and doubtless thought himself
perfectly safe. He was conversing cheer-'
fully with some of hi* officers} w hen
"T1kv sharp shot dashed him to the
ground ' " .
Ere 411 eye could view the wouhd'1.
The command tjien devolved on the gah
lantColF. W. Johnson, who continued
the seige until the morning of the tenth of
December, when the Mexicans raised t1ie(
white flag. Cant. Swisher was appointed,
by the cominander-incheif, pne of the three
commissioners to agree tiptm the terms and
recieve the surrenderofGen^ralCo*. fcknn
