States: Texas: Dallas
Eva, here's an excerpt from "The Lusty Texans of Dallas":
"By 1845 the question of annexation to the United States was the most discussed issue in the Republic of Texas. Dallas held a vote to see how opinion stood. Thirty-two voters took part, which suggests, if lawyer Crockett's count of thirty-nine souls in the settlement is correct, that all the adult males in the neighborhood were poled [polled]. The result showed twenty-nine in favor of annexation and three, Roderick A. Rawlins, Alexander Harwood, and John C. McCoy opposed to it."
