    3. The Baytown Historical Preservation Association at the Republic of Texas Plaza Park will present Chris Daniel, Harris County District Clerk, as speaker for its Saturday History series on Saturday, July 25. Elected in 2010 and re-elected in 2014, Daniel heads an office with about 450 employees. His office staffs 76 courts with clerks, maintains records for these courts and runs the jury service. In 2012 he married Jennifer Barber, a CPA, who grew up in Barbers Hill near Baytown. "Saving the Famous and Forgotten," Mr. Daniel will describe the process and progress of preserving historic cases dating from 1837 and highlight some especially important ones. Daniel has made possible the writing of a history of the office and the officeholders. In his research, he found one long-forgotten district clerk who was a Confederate officer as a teenager, the Criminal District Clerk of Harris County in the 1890s, and a general during the Spanish American War commanding troops from three northern states. The meeting will be held in the Barn Meeting Room, Republic of Texas Plaza Park, 5117 North Main Street, Baytown. Come at 9:30 a.m. for a get-acquainted social time; program at 10 a.m. The lecture is free to the public; however, due to limited seating a reservation is requested by calling 281.421.2099 (leave message) or emailing info@baytownhistory.org .

Pirates roamed the seas of the Atlantic and the Caribbean, and some made their way to the Gulf of Mexico and eventually to the shores of Louisiana and Texas. Jean (pronounced Zhan) Laffite, a Frenchman of questionable values, took New Orleans by storm, helped defend our nation under Andrew Jackson's command in the Battle of New Orleans, and then sailed away from the shores of Louisiana settling on a Texas island....Galveston. A legendary enigma, he told different stories to different people. Come meet "Jean Laffite," the gentleman pirate, and learn the legends, myths, and stories of the last of the Buccaneers. Mr. Jim Nonus will present "Laffite: A Lifelong Obsession." A fifth generation Galvestonian, Jim Nonus is an actor and song, book, and screenplay writer, who is an authority on Jean Laffite and his older brother Pierre. He is also a founding member of the Laffite Society. At a very early age his head was filled with pirate dreams and visits to the old Maison Rouge site. In the late 1960s, while working at UTMB in Galveston's East End, he began collecting every book on the Laffites that he could find, and made many trips to New Orleans in search of the Laffite saga.

    1. [TXSANJAC] Saturday History - January 24th
    2. Trevia W Beverly via
    3. The Baytown Historical Preservation Association (BHPA) opens the second season of its "Saturday History" series this Saturday, January 24th. The speaker will be George W. Wilson, author and photographer. Originally from New York, he has always been interested in the study of the old west and its history. Moving to Texas many years ago just increased the love of that subject as it gave him the opportunity to be close to many of the areas and stories he had read about. Having done research on his family background for many years, he decided to use this experience as a basis for doing factual research when he decided to delve into writing and publishing books about the old west. Being retired from regular daily employment, he has the time to travel and as a free-lance photographer, and where possible adds area pictures to the text for added interest. Mr. Wilson will present "Murder and Mystery: High Plains Justice." Mr. Wilson's books will be available for purchase after the lecture (and he'll be glad to autograph). He and his wife, Charlene, are owners of Abstracting the Past, a genealogy publisher. The lectures are free, held at BHPA's Living History Museum, at the Republic of Texas Plaza Park Barn, 5117 North Main Street, Baytown (just off I-10). In addition you can hear live music presented by Chuck Chandler who often appears at BHPA functions. Playing the fiddle and the banjo, Mr. Chandler plays in several bands, including the Runaway Scrape String Band, having performed at the Washington-on- the- Brazos and elsewhere. They play music from the 50s and 60s (1750s through the 1860s), and some of the music dates from the 1600s English ballads to the early 1900s string band music which is still played in the Appalachian region of the eastern states today. The free program will begin at 10 a.m. but attendees are invited to arrive at 9:30 a.m. for a time of fellowship and listen to Chuck's music. While the event is free, an RSVP is requested by email to info@baytownhistory.org or by calling 281.421.2099 (be sure to leave your name, phone number, and number attending). Mr. Chandler will also offer live music following the program, and the restored historic Wooster Common School and the 1910 Brown-McKay farm house will be open in the for free tours. You may visit the BHPA website at http://www.baytownhistory.org/ We hope you will join us for this event - ~ Trevia Trevia Wooster Beverly Houston, Texas 713-864-6862 Corresponding Secretary, Harris County Historical Commission (1995-) - <http://www.historicalcommission.hctx.net/> http://www.historicalcommission.hctx.net/ Chairman, Advisory Council, Baytown Historical Preservation Assoc.
