| Return to Caldwell County, TX Books | Return to Homepage |
The area around Caldwell County was first inhabited by the Paleo-Indians Hunter-gatherers and later Tonkawa, Karankawa and Comanche. The Green DeWitt petition for a land grant established a colony in Texas and by 1839 the first settlers came into the area. On 7 August 1848 the county was established from Bastrop and Gonzales counties and named for Matthew Caldwell “Old Paint” who was a soldier and statesman as well as a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence and also as a Commander of the Texas Rangers. In this volume you will find a brief history of Southwest Texas and a collection of biographical sketches of persons living here in 1890 when the original was published.
“DR. FORT P. VERSER - He was born in Madison County, Tennessee, the sixth of eleven children born to Daniel and Lautha (Fort) Verser, was also a North Carolinian of French extraction, whose early ancestors settled in Virginia upon coming to this country.”
