Short Addendum to Posting about Elizabeth Burleson, Wife of Charles Wesley Brooks: Valuable Resources

This is a brief footnote to yesterday’s posting, which focused on Elizabeth Burleson Brooks, wife of Charles Wesley Brooks of Bastrop and Williamson Counties, Texas, and on Elizabeth’s mother Mary Buchanan (Christian) (Burleson). As that posting noted, Charles and Elizabeth ranched with Elizabeth’s mother Mary following their marriage in Bastrop County, in 1855, and a house Mary built on headright land she and her first husband Thomas Christian obtained in 1832 near what is now Elgin in Bastrop County is being preserved by the Mary Christian Burleson Foundation.
