Zoraster was the father of Henry. Henry was his first-born son. In early Texas, Montgomery, Grimes and Leon County composed one big county named Montgomery County. Later but still in early Texas days, the counties became three. Zoraster and Henry were known as Leon County residents. Zoraster had a difficult time obtaining his Texas land grant but finally obtained it for fighting in the Battle of San Jacinto. His difficulty stemmed from the fact that he was ill during the actual battle with the measles. he had to file several affidavits with the Texas government to get his land. He finally did. At one time, he owned a hotel in Centerville, in Leon County. He lost all that he acquired because of the civil war. He fought in the civil war even though he was well into his forties and came home a broke man.
