How wonderful to have a document like that. My mothers family arrived in about 1828 with John Bevil but I have not found any proof. The Bevil Settlement was in east Texas and I haven’t been able to find out much about it.

Don’t give up on it. One of my uncles did the research so I don’t know how to go about it. But there are some pretty good records available. You might get some guidance from the Daughters of the Texas Republic. I’ll check my personal library for mentions of Bevil and freepmail you if I find anything interesting.
