Don R. Cheairs Query, Posted 6/20/98
Cheairs@aol.com

My name is Don Cheairs, orignally of Texas and now removed to Nebraska. My
family had everything to do with the creation of Houston County and the
city of Crockett.

John CHEAIRS and one of his sons signed the petition to create Houston
county when it was known as Mustang Prairie. They fought at the battle of
San Jacinto and were granted land for their participation in the Texas
Revolution and were allowed to keep the grants from Mexico when the area
was under the control of the Mexican Government. The CHEAIRS are still
represented in Austonio. A large plantation was in the area west of
Crockett where my great grandfather Andrew Jackson CHEAIRS grew up prior to
the Civil War in which he fought with the Texas regiment. John CHEAIRS is
buried in the Federal Cemetery and most others are buried in the Boggs and
other cemeteries in the area. 

On June the 6th, we held a reunion in Austonio for the Descendants of Jan
De La CHAIRE, the original immigrant from Rouen, France in 1666.

Other families are numerous that have ties to the CHEAIRS family of Houston
County, HAMMONS. ATKINSON, TOWNSEND, LARUE, SWEARINGEN, just to name a few.
