Waco, Texas

Singling Out Historical Individuals:  The Texas Historical Commission has seen fit to use a city cemetery to teach some history, in this case something about Thomas Hudson Barron, one of the earliest settlers in the Waco area. How do you like this line about his first wife? "Elizabeth died after giving birth to twelve children." His second wife bore him 10 more. Depending on how many survived, there's a possibility that all Anglos in Texas have Barron in their family tree! First Street Cemetery. [2012]
