Signer of the Declaration of Independence – Commander-in-Chief of the Texas Army – President of the Republic – Member of Congress of the Republic – Senator in the United States Congress – Governor of Texas

 

His early life–Joins the United States Army–Wounded in the Battle of Horseshoe–Studies Law–Elected Member of Congress and Governor of Tennessee–Came to Texas in 1833–Delegate to Old Washington Convention–Appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Texas Army–Defeats Santa Anna at San Jacinto–Elected President of the Republic–Senator in the United Sates Congress–Governor of Texas–Death in 1863.

 

Sam Houston was born near Lexington, Rockbridge County, Virginia, March 2, 1793.  His ancestors were of Scotch origin.  They came to America about 1689 and settled in Pennsylvania.  Robert Houston, Sam Houston’s grandfather, moved to Virginia and settled Rockbridge County.  Here he reared a family and here Sam Houston was born.  After the death of his father, his mother moved to Blount County, Tennessee.  He was but a lad of thirteen summers when his mother changed her residence from Virginia to the rugged State of Tennessee.  Here he came in contact with the Cherokee Indians, who lived near where his mother settled. He spent many leisure hours with them, joining them in their chase for game, which was in abundance at the time.

In 1813, Mr. Houston enlisted in the United Sates army.  The country was then at war with Great Britain.  He was not in the army long before his peculiar talents for military life were recognized.  He was soon promoted for gallantry in the battle with the Creek Indians.  In a fierce conflict at To-ho-ne-ka, (Horseshoe Bend of the Tallapoosa River), Alabama, he received a painful wound from an arrow from an Indian bow.  General Jackson ordered him to the rear, but he disregarded the order and joined his regiment in the thickest of the battle.  As the battle raged he received another wound that disabled him and from this he did not recover for many months, and did not rejoin his regiment until a short time before peace was declared.  He then served for a short time in the Adjutant General’s office at Nashville.  In November 1819, he was assigned to extra duty as sub-agent among the Cherokee Indians, to carry out a treaty just ratified with the nation.  During the winter of 1819-1820 he conducted a delegation of Cherokee Indians to Washington to present their claims to the Federal Government.

Regarding Houston’s military career in the United States army, a memorandum from the war department shows that “Sam Houston entered the Seventh Infantry as a Sergeant; became ensign in the Thirty-ninth Infantry, July 29, 1813; was severely wounded in the battle of Horse-shoe Bend under Major-General Jackson, March 27th; made Third Lieutenant December1813; promoted to Second Lieutenant May, 1814; retained May 15th in First Infantry; became First Lieutenant March 1, 1818; resigned May 17, 1818.”

Soon after resigning from the army Mr. Houston entered the law office of Mr. James Trimble, an eminent lawyer at Nashville, for the purpose of studying law.  He was soon admitted to the bar and at once became a successful advocate, locating in Lebanon.  He was soon elected District Attorney.  This made it necessary for him to reside in Nashville.  His resident in Lebanon was so pleasant that he left it with regrets.  When about to move to Nashville he delivered a public address to the citizens of Lebanon in which he expressed regrets that it became necessary for him to leave them.  In his address he said: “The time has come when I must bid you farewell.  Although duty calls me away, yet I must confess it is with feelings of sincere regret that I leave you.  I shall ever remember with emotions of gratitude the kindness which I have received at your hands.  I came among you poor and a stranger and you extended the hand of welcome, and received me kindly.  I was naked and ye clothed me–I was hungry and you fed me–I was athirst and ye gave me drink.”

“Mr. Houston’s address” said I. V. Drake, in a letter to his biographer, Dr. William Carey Crane, “was delivered in so pathetic a style that its effect was to cause many to shed tears.”

In 1820 Mr. Houston was appointed Adjutant-General of the State, with the rank of Colonel.  In 1821 he was elected Major-General by the field officers of the division that composed two-thirds of the State.

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town~~My Wonderful Memories of Jacinto City, Texas


old-fashioned-santa-claus

I grew up and was raised in the little suburb of Houston, Jacinto City, Harris County, Texas in the sixties. Times were much slower, safer, and more sentimental back then. Families were closer. My Mother and Father, Leroy & Jean (Linderman) Frederick had six children, Joseph, Phyllis, Sally, Karl, Patricia, and Sarah Frederick, in a little frame house with two bedrooms and one bath. Many arguments took place over who was next in the bathroom. Thank God, Daddy knew how to do anything. He added a huge bedroom and bath onto the back of our house for him and mother. We four girls had to share a bedroom. My two brothers had their own room. I can still remember those rooms. Our room had a big picture window, and faced the street. The boys had a smaller room and faced the backyard.

It was a really small house, and we were a very close knit family. We were raised Methodist. We fought but we always forgave each other, because we were family and that is what we were taught that family did.  Thank God, that is what mother taught us, that you only have one family, and love was unconditional. No matter how angry we made  each other.

My mother and daddy always made holidays special. Daddy put up all the lights, and put up the tree, and mother and all of us children decorated the tree. It was always an old fashioned red and green Christmas. We were taught that Jesus was the reason for the season. We always had a nativity scene.

Jean & Lou Mancill, Manger Scene

We had Advent Calendars. We always attended the midnight service on Christmas Eve. We always watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” together. We had fudge, Cherry Wink cookies, food, food, food, and usually ham because we had turkey at Thanksgiving. It was a family affair, and everyone had their jobs, and everything had a place. Mother was an excellent homemaker. She taught all of us girls how to cook, sew, and clean. 

I wish that everyone could have the wonderful, old-fashioned Christmas’ that we had. I know without a doubt, that this world would be a much better if there were more God, Jesus, and Godly families.

Santa Claus on firetruck, Jacinto City, TX

We believed in Santa Claus, and were always so excited when Santa Claus came down our street on the firetruck before Christmas. We knew that he wasn’t the real Santa, mother told us that he was Santa’s helpers, because he was too busy delivering presents to visit everyone. We each got a stocking full of candy. We loved candy! 

Christmas Stockings

We each had our own stocking full of fruit, nuts, and candy, even mother and daddy. We had no fireplace, so we hung them on the wall. Mother had the Sears catalog for us to look at and dream about what all Santa was going to bring us. She had us circle the things that we wanted. Then she had us go back and pick only ten things that we wanted. We always got most of what was on our lists. My favorite smell is of a real tree, and my new baby dolls. I loved books even then. I loved the smell of new books. I always got at least one baby doll, books, and mother and daddy gave us clothes, or things we needed. As I got older, I had to have Barbie, Ken, Allen, Midge dolls, and all their clothes and house. I loved to read and write even as a little girl.

Even at 58, I still have my dolls, books, and teddy bears. 

Christmas Tree, Dec. 8, 2012

Mother nurtured my love for books and reading. She taught us the correct way to spell, by making us read the Dictionary and playing Scrabble. Her work was never done, and daddy worked all the time. If he was not at work, then he was working in our yard. We always had one of the most beautiful yards in our neighborhood. We lived at 1709 Cheston Drive, Jacinto City, Texas. We had loads of neighbors and we were all close with them. We played lots of games together like “kick ball”, football, baseball, and “hide and seek”. Someone was always having a birthday party. We had lots of parties. We celebrated life. Daddy was an excellent cook too, and made the best barbecue chicken ever. He made his own barbecue sauce. He loved Worcestershire sauce

We visited our maternal grandparents on Christmas Eve, Santa came on Christmas morning, and then we still had Christmas night to look forward to at my paternal grandmother‘s house. My paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Annie “Bessie” (Mazac) Frederick, was really poor and had very little materially, but she always had sweets and soda pop for us. She made the best Kolaches because she was Moravian. She always had something small for us to open. We were so excited to bring our Christmas presents to show off to grandma Bessie. She was a Widow and raised five children on her own. My paternal grandfather died before mother and daddy married, so I never got the chance to know him. She was a Custodian for the Crosby ISD for years. She loved her family and lived for them. She was Catholic and attended mass regularly. 

We were richly blessed to be born at that time in Texas and America. The best country in the world to live in, even with all the corruption in our politicians. We need to elect more Godly people to run our country. God bless America. God save America.

My Mother and Father had six wonderful children in twenty one years of marriage. We were raised at 1709 Cheston Drive, in Jacinto City, Texas from 1947-1968.

Jason Ryan Fallin


Jason’ boyhood home at 13350 Mobile Street, Houston, Harris County, Texas 77015.

Isn’t he adorable? My baby is 26 now! This photo barely survived the flood (Tropical Storm Allison).
This was Easter 1983. At Grandma & Grandpa “Jean & Lou” Mancill’s house at 11039 Lafferty Oaks Street, in Houston, Texas 77013.
Jason and I resided at 13350 Mobile Street,  (Northshore subdivision), Houston, Harris County, Texas 77015.

He begged me to let him open a lemonade stand in our front yard. I told him no, but he insisted and I gave in and let him. I didn’t believe that he would sell any, but he showed me! He sold three or four pitchers. I was sooo proud of him. My little man selling at not even two years old yet. He had more confidence than I did. His Daddy and me gave him a lot of love. Jason and I resided at the house on Mobile Street from 1984 to 1990. God really blessed us with the gift of his life. Jason’s Daddy, Richard, tried to have a child of our own for ten years. Jason is not the child of our bodies, but of our hearts!

Frederick Home-1709 Cheston Drive, Jacinto City, Texas


Old homestead of Leroy Eugene & Jean Marie (Linderman) Frederick. Purchased in 1948.

Raised six (6) children there. Joseph Lee, Phyllis Jean, Sally Ann, Karl Thomas, Patricia Marie, and Sarah Kay Frederick. I have a lot of good memories of that old house. We had the nicest yard in the neighborhood.

Daddy worked hard in his yard. The front yard had lots of trees and shrubs. We liked to eat persimmons off the trees. Boy, were they sour! But…they were good. We ate them green, because if we didn’t the birds would get to them before we could. Daddy & Mother worked hard to make our house a home.

Mother made our clothes and took in ironing to help feed us six kids. We ate a lot of macaroni & cheese, beans, and spaghetti. The holidays were always special.

Daddy served in the U.S. Navy in World War II.

Daddy worked at Brown & Root in their automotive department for forty six (46) years. He started out as a Mechanic’s helper, and advanced up to the Asst. Supt. of the automotive department, at 4100 Clinton Drive, Houston, Texas 77001.

We lived life to the fullest! We celebrated life through birthday parties, Christmas, Easter, and all holidays.

I loved rolling in the cool, green grass, climbing the trees, and swimming in our pool in the back yard. Every summer we had a pool, that is the only way we could stay cool in this hot, humid Texas weather.

One of my favorite memories is of when Daddy let us paint the picket fence between the Rhodes‘ house and ours. We had never been allowed to paint before that. We loved it! The Rhodes’ kids were jealous, because they couldn’t paint too.

Back in the 1960’s, everyone knew their neighbors. We had the Whites on left of us, the Rhodes on the right of us, across the street were the Johnsons, Mancills, Brantleys, and Monks. Down the street were the Camfields next to the Whites, then the Meyers were near the Deans. Down the other way, were the Bobbitts. Man, we had a lot of playing, swimming, and fun with all those kids  Back in those days, just about everybody each six children. Imagine all those kids!!

Louis “Lou” Clifford Mancill~~My Step Dad


Louis and Jean Mancill, Galveston, TX

Louis Clifford “Lou” Mancill

Birth: Nov. 2, 1924
Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, USA
Death: Dec. 20, 2002
Houston, Harris County, Texas, USA

Grew up in Robertsdale & Mobile, Alabama. Grandson of John Travis Wilson & Annie Missouri Flowers, and Edmond Mancill & Rosetta (Dillard) Mancill of Alabama.

One of eight (8) living children. Son of Elliott Devocious Mancill & Cora Lee (Wilson) Mancill of Alabama.

Served as a Pvt. in World War II, in France in the U.S. Army, and was promoted to Sgt. when he served in Korean War in Korea. Served as a cook in the Army near the front lines. He risked his life to feed our troups.

Married to Myrtle Marie Elder and had two sons, Robert and Carl Mancill, in Mobile, Alabama. They were divorced and Louis moved to Houston, Harris County, Texas in the 1950’s.

Married to Mildred Marie Bartlett and had one son, Michiael Wayne Mancill, in Houston, Harris County, Texas. Divorced in 1968.

Married to Jean Marie (Linderman) Frederick on December 5, 1968 in Harmony Wedding Chapel,  in Houston, Harris County, Texas.

No children by “birth”, but six children by way of “heart”. He always called me his Daughter, and I felt loved by him. I babysat for his son, Michiael, in 1967, on Cheston Dr., Jacinto City, Texas. I was only 12 years of age. Mike and I are brother & sister in God’s eyes anyway. Mike and his Dad loved to play the guitar together. Louis never favored any of his children over the others. He loved all “God’s children” equally. The Grandkids called him “Honey” Lou, because Grandma called him “Honey”.

“Alabama Lou” is what the friends at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor, Pasadena, Tx called him. Lou played music with Paul Buskirk and Johnny Day in 1970.

Anyone who ever met him knew that he loved his family and was a proud Army Veteran of World War II and Korea. Louis played the guitar and sang for his buddies.

In 1980,Richard Wayne Fallin, myself, and my Mother and Dad, were blessed to be able to visit England and France. My Dad revisited some of the places that he was stationed at in France. He never was able to talk about the horror of it all, because it hurt too much. 

He was a faithful, lifelong Church of Christ member. He has a brother, Glenn & Marie (Black) Mancill, who survived him, they live in Friendswood, Texas. Since, Louis and Glenn both resided in Houston, Texas, they were able to spend a lot of time fishing and hunting together. “Lou” even had a Harley Davidson motorcycle in 1947. Louis also had two brothers, John Elliott and Gerald Mancill, that survived him. They reside in Alabama. His parents, a brother, Floyd, and two sisters, Emma Laura Mancill Matuk, and Annie Lee Mancill Horan, preceded him in death.

“Cliff” is what they called him at work. He worked for the Lee Thompson, Co. for many years. He did air conditioning and heating repair. But…my Dad could fix anything! He loved working with his hands. We still have a beautiful home in Houston, TX, that his two hands helped to rebuild after it flooded in 2001.

“Lou” as we called him, and my Mother, Jean Linderman Frederick Mancill, built us a home up on the lake at Sam Houston Lake Estates near Cleveland, TX. in 1969. Of course, us kids helped a lot too. It still stands today. He told me that he wired his parents home in Robertsdale, AL, so that they could have their first home with electricity back in the 1940’s.

I could go on and on about all the things this man did while on this earth, but there isn’t enough time to. I’ll just say that he was an honest, faithful, hardworking, and good man, who is dearly missed.
