LThe subject of this study is The History of San Jacinto County. Throughout the writer’s experience in studies of a historical nature there have been many instances in which county histories figured. Not often is it possible for a study of this nature to be made through the cooperative efforts of people who have witnessed the growth and development of the county for generations. It is the writer’s privilege to have known many of these contributors, for her family has served politically and religiously in San Jacinto County for the past three generations. Since there had been made no complete historical record of San Jacinto County, it seems necessary that the progress and economic development of the county be noted. In order, therefore, to preserve an authentic record in which it is hoped to be of value as time goes on, it is the plan of this study to include in one volume the complete history of San Jacinto County. The files of local newspapers; sources found in the State Liberty, and the Library of the University of Texas, Austin Texas; the Estill Library, Huntsville, Texas; county records; files of The Texas Almanac; and early church histories have been valuable sources of information, in addition to interviews with and correspondence from early residents of San Jacinto County.

SNo Abstract ItemHistory of Fort Bend County(1943-05-01) Nesbitt, Lee; Clark, J.L.The purpose in preparing this thesis has been to collect and preserve in permanent form authentic data concerning the historical, economic, and social development of Fort Bend County, one of the oldest counties of our State. It had been interesting to investigate the development of the county has achieved and the relation of its pioneers,--many of whose descendants still live on in original land grants,--to that progress. The sources from which the material for this thesis as been obtained are many and varied. Much of the data has been secured from early histories of the State, Gammel’s Laws of Texas, the United States Census Reports, county and state newspapers, county records, records in the Texas Archives of the State, and correspondence and interviews with professional and business men and other citizens of the county. It is the hope that this study will assist in creating a keener interest in the writing of local history, and that others may undertake a similar task in recording the story of the progress of their counties.
