History of Texas, Lewis Publishing Co
Posted by: betty baird (ID *****0301) Date: June 22, 2010 at 07:07:32

I am wondering if the Lewis Publishing Company produced a "History of Texas" edition for Grimes and surrounding counties sometime in the 1890's, and if so, would anyone know where I might get a copy or plead for someone to do look-ups. I have the Milam, Williamson, Bastrop, Travis, Lee, and Burleson Counties edition downloaded on my computer, and have a friend who makes pertinent copies from the Central Texas edition for me. I feel sure that somewhere there is a Grimes and surrounding Counties edition. If anyone knows where, please let me know.

My families, both maternal and paternal, lived in Grimes and Walker counties beginning in the 1840's, several are buried in the Plaster-Ross Cemetery, others in the Manning-Brimberry Cemetery, and my g grandfather's sister was the first buried in the McAdams family cemetery.

Any information about this book would be wonderful .... and my thanks to you for your help. Please contact me at
