Interesting find: One of my ancestors, Reverend John Anderson was involved in a very serious case. What makes this of interest is the fact that it involved the abuse of one of his hunting dogs which he had given to a neighbor. After being starved and abused by the neighbor the dog struggled back to Reverend John Anderson. When John saw the dog he went into a rage and went over to the owner's home with his rifle and shot at the man wounding him. John fired his rifle again and finally stopped. John was an original member of the Society of the Cincinnati.

The Dean branch of the family tree is also of much interest. James M. Dean participated in the Gold Rush at Sutters Creek California. He owned 747 acres of land in what is now Walker County Texas. Two of his sons, John and Jesse became Texas Rangers. My direct ancestor Fulton Dean who was the youngest brother of John and Jesse served in the Civil War in the Confederacy in the 20th Texas Infantry who successfully recaptured Galveston and broke the Union blockade. Fulton did not survive the conflict and died as a result of yellow fever. I believe that John and Jesse also died during the war which left only one remaining son Albert Dean after the Civil War.

My mother was told an amusing story about my Great Great Aunt Anne Eliza Dean who married David Bean of Livingston, Texas. Aunt Eliza liked to dress up in her best when she was dating David Bean. Part of this ritual was to wear a corset which was a necessary item for the fashion styles at that time. She was going to a Sunday social with David and she was being more particular than she already was concerning her gown for the event. Aunt Eliza had requested to have her stays pulled in much more than the usual too. I guess that having something close to a 10 inch waist was the norm. David Bean arrived to take her to the social in a beautiful buggy and the whole family was outside to greet him and watch as Aunt Eliza made her entrance. As Aunt Eliza made her way to the buggy with David she fainted and fell into the pig pen. The stays were too tight........

My Great Great Grandfather Stephen Tullos caught and raised Mustangs in Texas. He loved and respected these creatures and never used any violent or harmful methods in his care of them. He crossed the Mustangs with Quarter Horses to develop a stronger and larger horse suitable for the times in Texas. Be kind to horses! My Great Grandmother Ceola Tullos had many memories of her childhood in early Texas. She told the family that one night the family was attacked by the Comanche. They had relatives visiting and one of them had red hair. They hid him in the hayloft with them when the Comanche attacked. At that time red scalps were taken by the Indians. The Comanche did not go after them but their horses were stolen.
