    Texas Girl

    I thought I would share something interesting about myself.

    I have always been very proud that I am a Texas girl. I was born and raised here and so were the many generations before me.

    I am a 8th generation Texan. My family on my great-grandfather's, were among Stephen F. Austin's original 300 colonist's.

    I am actually qualified to be in the Daughter of Texas Republic, which is something that I am looking into joining. I love all things involving Texas.

    Local-patriotism is something very important. I´m proud to have a some centuries long Bavarian lineage myself. Well, I wonder, from where came your family lines before they´ve settled down in Texas?

    My family and I call ourselves Heinz 57, because we are a perfect combination of German, English, Swedish, and Dutch... however, the people in my family who were a part of the first generations to settle in Texas were English.

    I am so very proud of my heritage and where I come from. It is all what makes us unique and who we are!

    I'm a Texas girl too, but I wasn't born there nor do I live there but I love Texas! My sister and brother were born there, such a shame I can't really call myself a Texas girl also. It was so close though, I was almost born in Texas.

    Welcome from a 4th generation Texas boy.
    But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is extinguished forever.

    Hey Feisty Goddess: Not to worry, Better to be almost born in Texas, than
    to not be almost Born in Texas. My mother's family were all raised in
    Texas. Although few of them were actually born there. But dang, you better not say anything bad about Texas or you had a fight on your hands. A California
    highway patrol officer once pulled my mother and her sisters over for
    speeding and said something smart-alecky about Texas drivers and the 3
    sisters were getting out of the car to beat the crap out of him when he
    decided discretion was the better part of valor.

    My maternal GParents were actually born in Old Mexico as they say on the border. My maternal GGParents were anglo refugees fleeing the US Federal
    Government. I guess resisting the Federal Government must run in my genes. My MGP's were successful farmers and ranchers in Old Mexico but unfortunately, they were ethnically cleansed during the revolution and so
    wound up in El Paso. That is why I don't get too teary eyed when
    mexicans start boo hooing about us anglos "stealing" their "land".

    But thats all academic, my aunts and uncles spent their formative years
    in Texas and by God they were still dyed-in-the-wool unreconstructed
    Texans when they were planted in the ground.


    Two Texans Till The End!
    Jess and Hazel Taylor, my MGPs

    My G-grandfather Weir was a dean at Schreiner college. He was very tall with blue eyes and brown hair and either Germanish or British isles looking (I've heard both). My G-grandmother Weir was very beautiful. She was tall, blonde curly hair, blue-eyed, and very fair skinned. I would put up a pic but I don't have any. Unfortunately I didn't inherit their tall genes like my sister did, I got the average ones . They were both Texans through and through. But anyway, my sister is a lawyer in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I've been there to visit and besides the Mexicans and the climate, its a really nice place to be. I would move there.

    In which state was you born then and where do you live? New Mexico, Oklahoma or Louisana? I'm just wondering. Does your family move a lot?
