My ancestors immigrated to the Republic of Texas in 1840 from Prussia. Prior to Prussia they fled France because of religious persecution.
Were they Jewish, Heugonot, or Menonite?
Most of my ancestors came to Texas during Reconstruction after the last Civil War. Some of my relatives were here during the Republic.
My family has farmed in Haskell county for over 110 years.
Texas has never had a history of religious intolerance, but it has a history of resisting oppression.
