<p>"Ferdinand Friedrich Engelking (1810-1885) was born in Schluesselburg, Westphalia, Prussia." In 1839 he immigrated to Cat Spring in Austin County, Texas to join Ludwig Sigismund Anton von Roeder, his wife, and family. The Engleking family operated a successful broom-making business for many years, first in Broomtown, and then in Sealy, Texas. The company was destroyed by a tornado in 1964.

<p>Grayson was a merchant at Velasco soon after the Texas Revolution. In August 1840 he was a candidate for mayor of San Antonio, and was elected Sheriff of Austin County on February 6, 1843. He acquired a considerable amount of Texas land in the San Antonio area by purchasing land scrip that had been used to pay Texas soldiers. After the Mexican War he took a mule train of supplies to Los Angeles, California. He grubstaked miners, bought property around San Francisco, and acquired considerable wealth before his death in San Francisco on July 8, 1849.</p>

Washington Green Lee Foley
</persName>
<note>
<p>FOLEY, WASHINGTON GREEN LEE (1780–1874). Washington Foley, Lavaca County pioneer, immigrated to Texas in 1838 with his wife, Sarah, two sons, a daughter, and a large number of slaves. He established a plantation at a site on Nixon Creek in Colorado County (now in Lavaca County). The mill, gin, blacksmith shop, and cluster of slave huts were listed on Ferdinand von Roemer's map of Texas as Foley's Settlement and were described by William Bollaert in 1843 as "a very fine settlement and good cotton and corn plantation." Foley was wealthy and made extensive loans to settlers and merchants in the area, including one for $1,000 to Gail Borden to finance his "meat biscuit." In 1851, on the tax roll for Lavaca County, Foley is listed as owning ninety-five slaves and over 12,000 acres. He had five sons and two daughters. Sarah Foley died in 1863; W. G. L. Foley died on January 23, 1874. His funeral was attended by seventy of his former slaves. Paul G. Boethel, "FOLEY, WASHINGTON GREEN LEE," Handbook of Texas Online (http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/ffo36), accessed December 13, 2011.

<note>
<p>The Lavaca River rises in the northeastern corner of Gonzales County and flows southeast for 115 miles, crossing Lavaca and Jackson counties, to its mouth on Lavaca Bay in northern Calhoun County. According to legend the "Pride," flagship of pirate Jean Laffite's fleet, was scuttled in the Lavaca near its mouth when pressured by an American revenue cutter.</p>

<note>
<p>After the fall of the Alamo, General Sam Houston ordered Fannin to abandon La Bahia. He did so on March 19,1836, but took a leisurely path and the La Bahia garrison was captured and imprisoned in the presidio. On March 27 the Texian captives were marched from the presidio and executed, in an event known as the Goliad Massacre.</p>

Zenas mentions staying at the home of Reverend John Wesley Kenney, one of the first great pioneer Methodist Ministers in Texas. He arrived in Texas in 1833, and immediately began founding Methodist societies, even though under Mexican law, the Catholic Church was the only religion allowed. Kenney served in the Texas army from September 11, 1835, until April 21, 1836. He missed the battle of San Jacinto because he took a two-week furlough to assist his family during the Runaway Scrape.

"Ferdinand Friedrich Engelking (1810-1885) was born in Schluesselburg, Westphalia, Prussia." In 1839 he immigrated to Cat Spring in Austin County, Texas to join Ludwig Sigismund Anton von Roeder, his wife, and family. The Engleking family operated a successful broom-making business for many years, first in Broomtown, and then in Sealy, Texas. The company was destroyed by a tornado in 1964.

Washington Green Lee Foley (1780-1874), Lavaca County pioneer, immigrated to Texas in 1838. The mill, gin, blacksmith shop, and cluster of slave huts were listed on Ferdinand von Roemer's map of Texas as Foley's Settlement and were described by William Bollaert in 1843 as "a very fine settlement and good cotton and corn plantation." Foley was wealthy and made extensive loans to settlers and merchants in the area, including one for $1,000 to Gail Borden to finance his "meat biscuit."

Zenas mentions Mr. Duval, and his telling of the massacre at Goliad when he escaped. This same John Crittenden Duval went on to author many books about early Texas, and the one that comes to mind is the "Adventures of Big Foot Wallace." Duvall and Wallace were both Texas Rangers under Captain John Coffee "Jack" Hays.

Zenas mentions the book "Incidents of Travel in the Yucatan" by John Lloyd Stevens, and it amazed me to find that this book is still sold. Most references state that it was first printed in 1847, and this Diary proves it must have been earlier.

William L. Rogers went to Corpus Christi with his father in 1846, to join Taylor’s army, the old man bringing other sons with him. Finding that the army had left for Mexico, Rogers and his men started towards Brownsville to join up. The men were attacked by Mexican bandits, who tied their hands, cut their throats and threw them into the arroyo. William L. Rogers managed to swim out on the opposite side, making his escape in the chaparral, where he wandered about until he was almost dead. A Mexican woman found and nursed him back to life and aided his escape. William married the same Julia Corona years later, and eventually took revenge on the Mexican's that had killed his family.
