In my travels and genealogy research, I have come across graves, monuments, and historical markers of famous or infamous Texas people and places - Sam Houston, Bonnie and Clyde, a wife of Davy Crockett, Civil War General Robert Gano, President LBJ's home, etc. I decided to create a webpage for those who might be interested in some of this Texas history.
