From Mina Mae Woodrome:
She loved her home. Many of the things she learned in her growing-up years she continued all her life. She never sat with her hands idle. She did all kinds of needlework - - just name it and she could do it. Her quilts took prizes at fairs. A niece said of her that she was a good housekeeper and "that she would get on her hands and knees and scrub floors until they shined". She was a good diagnostician and rarely needed a doctor. She was never in a hospital.

She was happiest when she could help a friend or go to church. She was at her best when preparing for company. We always said our home was like "Grand Central Station", with so many relatives and friends coming to visit.

               Little Berry Green was born on 13 July 1834 at Shelbyville, Bedford County, Tennessee. He was the son of David Green and Tabitha C. Huckaby. On 12 July 1855, at age 20, Little Berry Green married at Gonzales County, Texas,, Sarah Ann Burkett, age 14, daughter of David Burket and Mary Ann Zumwalt. Little Berry Green died on 5 December 1900 at Hochheim, DeWitt County, Texas, at age 66. He was buried at Hochheim Cemetery, Hochheim, Texas.
               

          From Mina Mae Woodrome:
          The Green farm was approx. 1500 acres with a mile frontage on the Guadalupe River. There were many large pecan trees. For several years grandfather operated a ferry and it was at this old ferry site that, supposedly, the Mexicans ran a pack train of mules laden with gold into the river to escape capture by the Indians. Though grandfather searched for the gold, no trace was found.

          With a large farm and eleven children grandfather never lacked for help. All the children had to hustle. The girls had to work in the fields, planting and harvesting the crops the same as the men. This pleased mama for she loved the outdoors and never got over her love of the farm even though she lived in town after she and our father married. She liked to gather pecans in the river bottom and could describe the kind of pecans gathered and the location of the trees. She helped grandfather haul rock to build the chimney on their big house. She helped shear sheep and loved to tell about the time the mean old ram chased her. Also, the time the polecat chased her and Aunt Lillie when they were carrying water from the spring to the house for cooking.

          The Green home with so many young people of their own was a natural gathering place for all the young men and women in that community. Every Sunday afternoon grandfather taught a Sunday School class at his home. It was well attended, as you can imagine, with all the attractive Green girls present. One Sunday afternoon an outlaw engaged Grandfather Green in conversation on the front porch while outlaws in the band stole his cattle.

          On the 1860 Census for DeWitt County, Little Berry Green was listed as a wagon-maker. He was considered an excellent carpenter.

          Grandfather Green was in the Civil War. When he returned, his family needed food and there was no money. He took his gun and went hunting to kill a wild turkey, rabbit or squirrel. He walked and walked and found nothing. Dejected, he sat on a log to rest, holding his head in his hands he leaned over. There on the ground between his feet was a $20 gold piece!

          Sometime later the family moved to the large house about a mile from the river. It was a two-story L-shaped house with tall chimneys at each end of the front. In the corner of the L was a cistern.

          In the 1890's a friend wanted Little Berry Green to go to Coleman County with him to buy land. Instead, he rented his farm and moved to Yoakum. Here he had the "L.B. Green Grocery Store" and the second opera house there, "Green's Opera House". Incidentally, the friend went to Coleman County and bought 80,000 acres of land. The grocery store burned in 1899.

          Shortly after the fire, the Greens returned to the farm where he died soon after. The cause of his death was a heart injury sustained some years previously while helping to build a stone college at Concrete. Concrete is now a ghost town. In July 1971, the DeWitt County Historical Survey Committee unveiled the Concrete College marker.

                 Sarah Ann Burkett was born on 20 October 1840 at Gonzales County, Texas. She was the daughter of David Burket and Mary Ann Zumwalt. On 12 July 1855, at age 14, Sarah Ann Burkett married at Gonzales County, Texas,, Little Berry Green, age 20, son of David Green and Tabitha C. Huckaby. Sarah Ann Burkett died on 17 December 1919 at Burkett, Texas, at age 79. She was buried at Hochheim Cemetery, Hochheim, Texas.
                 

            From Mina Mae Woodrome:
            Grandmother Green was a fiery, pert, young lady and known for her quick temper. She was very pretty and very small. At the time of their marriage, she could stand on tiptoe under grandfather's outstretched arm without touching it. He could span his hands around her waist. She was always called "Ann".

            Grandmother Green's parents (David Burketts) settled near Gonzales then Moulton on a grant of land from the Mexican government. The Green's settled at Hochheim - - first living there, then near Moulton, then back to Hochheim.

            The Green home was also a stagecoach stop. The drivers here changed their teams and in case of emergency the driver and passengers would spend the night. Mama told us many stories. One we particularly remembered was about the Jack-O-Lanterns. Mama said the stagecoach drivers were very frightened of this phenomenon and felt it was bad luck for one to appear in the road. They appeared only on dark, cloudless nights and seemed to be a ball of fire dancing across the fields. Some drivers swore to seeing several in a group and said they would follow the stagecoach and frighten the horses. The only way to get them to leave was for the driver to dismount, turn his pockets wrong-side out and lie on the ground face down.

            Education was hard to come by. The nearest school was at Hochheim four miles away and the children had to walk as a horse or mule could not be spared to take them. School was about three months in the winter and many of those days the weather was too bad to go.

            Mama told about going to a "sociable" at Hochheim where there was a lage gathering. She said it was "noised about" that the Green girls were the best dressed girls there.

            Grandmother Green enjoyed a cup of coffee every afternoon. She took a small piece of cheese and dipped it in the coffee until it softened, dunking as we do doughnuts! She said that radishes should be served only at breakfast and always with bacon.

            Soon after grandfather's death in 1900, grandmother came back to Yoakum to live. A family by the name of Till managed the farm with the help of a Mexican family whose given names were Kate and George.

            Our brother, Claude Alton Woodrome, remembers visiting her after she moved to Yoakum. He said she kept peppermint stick candy in her sewing machine drawer and always gave him some.

            Grandmother Green spent her last years with her daughter, Gussie (Augusta Alice Green Burns) in Burkett, Texas. She was almost blind at the time of her death.

                   David Burket was born on 22 February 1798 at Bedford County, Pennsylvania. He was the son of John William Burket and Catherine McClure. In 1818, David Burket married at Pike, Callaway County, Missouri,, Mary Ann Zumwalt, daughter of Jacob Zumwalt and Catherine Queti Miller. David Burket died on 7 December 1845 at Gonzales County, Texas, at age 47; Where is David Burkett buried? Edna Burkett of Yoakum, TX is the daughter of Thomas Jefferson Burkett, son of Isaiah Burkett, son of David Burkett. In April 1977, Edna told me this: Isaiah and his wife, Mary, had four daughters and a son, Thomas Jefferson Burkett (her father). Isaiah enlisted in a calvary unit in the Civil War, was taken prisoner but did not survive pneumonia in the Springfield, Illinois prison. Thomas never saw his father. Mary remarried but did not take the children with her. They went to live with their uncle, Bartholomew Howard Burkett. However, Thomas stayed some of the time with the Little Berry Green family.

              Little Bery Green and his wife, Sarah Ann Burkett Green, owned a 1500-acre farm near Hochheim, Texas. A mile of this land fronted on the Guadalupe River. At times Uncle Berry pointed to a large tree and told him that his Grandfather David Burkett was buried under that tree, the place was not marked, and he asked Thomas to remember the tree.

              Many, many years later Thomas and some of his children went to the river bottom but Thomas could not remember which tree - and after that period of time that tree may not have been there.
                   

              In 1825 Green DeWitt obtained a contract to settle 300 families in the area southwest of Austin's grant. DeWitt secured his grant from the Empresario of Mexico with the help of Stephen F. Austin and James Kerr on a trip to Mexico City.

              "The colonization law of March 24, 1825, allowed each family brough in by an empresario, if its occupation was cattle raising, a sitio of land, and to each family whose occupation was farming a labor. If a family engaged in both stock raising and agriculture it received both a sitio and a labor of land. A single person was to receive only one-fourth as much, but, on marrying, the other three-fourths were to be added, and, in case he married a Mexican, an additional fourth was to be granted."
              --"DeWitt's Colony" by Ethel Zivley Rather

              David and Mary arrived in TX on June 1, 1830 with children: Edna, Nathaniel Boone, Isaiah and Mahala.
              They settled in Gonzales, Old Mexican Municipality. He had obtained two grants of land:
              No. 19 Burket, David, married, date of arrival - June 1, 1830, size of family - 6, size of grant 24/25 sitios, date of title - May 10, 1832.
              No. 20 Burket, David size of grant - 1/25 sitio, date of title - November 26, 1831.
              These grants are recorded in the General Land Office, Spanish Archives, Austin, Texas - Land Grants Vol. 13: 24/25 sitios, pages 611-614; 1/25 sitio, pages 615-618 - written in Spanish.

              The grant of 24/25 sitios (or 4250.4 acres) was located on the La Vaca and Fejocotes Creeks, in Lavaca and Gonzales counties. Here David Burkett raised cattle.

              The grant of 1/25 sitio (or 177.1 acres) was located on the Guadalupe River below the townsite of Gonzales, then known as Old Mexican Municipality. This is where the David Burkett family lived. The town of Gonzales was named for Rafael Gonzales, the Mexican Govenor of Texas and Coahuila.

              The two land grants totaled 4427.5 acres or about one league (4428.4 acres).

              In the early days of Green DeWitt's Colony there was an abundance of game and fish. Men wore buckskin suits and rawhide moccasins. Women wore homespun clothing. Practically everyone lived in log cabins with dirt floors and slept in homemade beds which were built onto the walls.

              There were encounters with Indians. Once David Burkett was wounded by Comanche Indians but he survived.

                                                  From memoirs of Nathaniel Boone Burkett:
                                                  "My father, David Burkett, brought his family to Texas -- with a group of five other Missouri families -- and landed at the mouth of the Lavaca River on the 10th day of June 1830. I was nine years old and destinctly remember that the first thing we saw was ten or twelve Indians, who appeared very friendly and came aboard to assist in unloading our supplies.
                                                  We were met at the landing by an early settler with his ox cart, who hauled us and our baggage out to his cabin where we stayed four or five days. Then a wagon train of five or six wagons came from Gonzales after us. We first settled in DeWitt's Colony near the present town of Gonzales and remained there until 1836, when the invading army of Santa Anna caused all the families of that section to flee for their lives and this departure from the Gonzales section is often referred to as "The Runaway Scrape". In 1838 we returned to Green DeWitt's Colony and made or home a few miles south of Gonzales on the Guadulpe River.
                                                  During the history-making year of 1836 I was only 16 years of age and did not take an active part in any of the military engagements; however, I was old enough to assist in moving the families from the path of the invading Mexicans. Six years later, 1842, when Texas was a weak Republic the military leaders of Mexico again endeavored to get control of Texas. I went with one scouting party down as far as the Nueces River some 30 miles above Corpus Christi, where we had several skirmishes with the Mexicans but returned because we had no supplies. We returned by way of Victoria and were three days without anything to eat except some garfish boiled in clear water and only one mess of that. I left the company at Victoria and returned to my home near Gonzales.
                                                  ........
                                                  In regard to the events after the fall of the Alamo, I will say that I knew Mrs. Dickerson well. She and her baby and a Negro man were the only survivors of this famous battle. After the battle and the fall of the Alamo they walked all the way to Gonzales, a distance of 70 miles..."

                                                              The family moved from Virginia to Kentucky to Louisiana to Missouri. He and his sons completed a log house in 1798. This home was used as the meeting place for church services. Later it was conveyed to Nathan Heald, and became known as Fort Zumwalt. A government marker for Revolutionary War Soldier Jacob Zumwalt, and one for his wife, have been placed and dedicated on October 5, 1968 at Fort Zumwalt State Park, O'Fallon, Missouri.

                                                              In June 1937, the remains of the cabin built in 1798 was photographed and catalogued in the Historic American Buildings Survey, District of Missouri. Bryan and Rose in Pioneer Families of Missouri in 1876 related that "Christopher and Jacob Zumwalt settled in St. Charles county, on Peruque Creek, in 1796, and in 1798 Jacob built the first hewed log house that was ever erected on the north side of the Missouri river. It is still standing, on land owned by Mr. D. Heald, about one and a half miles northwest of O'Fallon Station, on the St. Louis, Kansas City and Northern Railway. The house was used as a fort during the Indian war, and often as many as ten families found shelter within its walls at the same time. The first Methodist sacrement in Missouri was administered in this house, by Rev. Jesse Walker, in 1807. The wine was made by Mrs. Zumwalt and Mrs. Col. David Bailey, from the juice of polk berries, sweetened with maple sugar; and for bread they used the crusts of corn bread." A chimney which is presumably preserved from parts of the original still stands in a protected area in Ft. Zumwalt Park in O'Fallon.

                                                                                  Aunt Rosanna Randle was the lady I was named for. She and Uncle Burton came to Texas with daddy. Daddy was a carpenter and made lots of money in those days. Aunt Rosanna met and married Captian Gus Jones. They went to the old Jones homestead and had four children: James, 1st; Will, 2nd; Sophy, 3rd; and Charlie, 4th. Aunt Rosanna took pneumonia when Charlie was 8 days old and died. Grandmother mostly raised the children.

                                                                                  Mary Ann Rosanna Green was named for her maternal Grandmother Mary Ann Zumwalt Burkett and for her paternal Aunt Rosanna Randal (Randle).

                                                                                  I, Rosanna, was born on the old river home. Then papa sold the old home and moved the family to Moulton. There brother John and sister Sally were born. Then along came the old Confederate War. (All of David Burkett's sons were in this war.)
                                                                                  Sister Lillie was born after the war was over. Pa (Little Berry Green) moved to Concrete. We lived there only 11 months. No little ones came in there. Pa sold the place to Columbus Carroll. He went bankrupt. Pa sued for the place and gained it back. We moved from Concrete back to Moulton. Only stayed a month and back to the river we went. You were born on the river. We had been there only a few days when you were born. No one on hand but grandma and Aunt Mahala. There at the old home place all the rest of the family was born.

                                                                                       Children of Mary Ann Rosanna Green and George Rae:

                                                                                        Lillie Ella and I.J. Patterson first lived at Hochheim where he farmed and had a store. Elezio Martinez now owns the farm, has remodeled the house. The home and land are in excellent condition.

                                                                                        Evva died in 1903. Soon after her death, the Pattersons moved to Dripping Springs, later to Bay City, and when the crops failed, they moved back to Dripping Springs. Most of the children grew up there. After some time, they moved to Palacios. By now Dimple was the only one at home. For a while they lived in Blessing.

                                                                                        Beulah remembers her mother talking about one of her grandparents fighting in one of the wars. He called his gun a "musket". When he came home after the war, he put the musket in the corner of the room, hoping never to go to war again.

                                                                                        This was a busy family raising chickens, farming, caring for an orchard and a catfish pond. When harvest was over I.J. took his sons camping, fishing and hunting.

                                                                                        Beulah and Ella sewed and helped with care of the children. Fifteen of the sixteen children lived to be grown. There are 33 living grandchildren, including one set of twins; about 60 gr-grandchildren; and 25 gr-gr-grandchildren.
