Publication: Research and Entry by Marian Fitzgerald Parent. Contributor of older generation Hammond/s Family by Norma Hammonds. In reference to Van Meter by many sources, namely Henry Howe's Historical Collections of the Great West(Cincinnati:1851)has much to tell us about American frontier life of the late 1700s. Apart from some brief introductory remarks, the article was re-printed by Howe from "Notes on the Settlement and Indian Wars of the Western Parts of Virginia and Pennsylvania, from the years 1763 until the year 1783, inclusive; together with a View of the State of Society and manners of the first Settlers of the Western County," by the Rev. Dr. Joseph Doddridge, Wellsburgh, Va., 1824

Note
Edward Wiseman Fitzgerald Written by his granddaughter, Glynda Ann Fitzgerald Cumby Edward Wiseman was my Grandfather. I remember him as being a short, good natured, cigar smoking man. He was very kind to me. Every morning when I was a girl, Grandpa walked to the grocery store to get the things Grandma needed. When I was visiting, I loved to go with him. He only went to the third grade because he had to start working on the farm. There were also blacks working on the farm and the children of Pop’s family worked right along side the others. Aunt Faye says the children were all treated like slaves. Married to Alice Pearl Crabb in Dodge, Texas in 1905, they lived in Oakhurst where Aunt Faye was born. They then moved to Coleman and then to Santa Anna, both of which were in Coleman County. Two year old Hazel died of dyptheria. Gramdpa carved her name on a rock and put it by her grave. My Dad told me that while they were living in West Texas, Grandpa dreamed that there was a treasure buried on the family land in East Texas. He dreamed it three nights in a row. On the fourth morning, he packed up his family in a wagon and moved back to Oakhurst. He looked for the treasure off and on all his life, but never found it. Aunts Ida Mae, Molly, and Uncle Dub were born in Oakhurst. Aunts Margie and Helen were born in Houston. Pop’s father-in-law Henry Crabb--lived with the family off and on. Aunt Faye said he was a mean man. Grandpa Fitzgeald worked at night and while he was sleeping, Grandpa Crabb would go around the outside of the house and bang his cane on the wall in order to keep Grandpa from sleeping. Many years earlier, Crabb had tried to shoot grandpa, but Grandma stood in front of Grandpa to protect them. (See Aunt Fay’s article) The family constantly struggled financially. Grandpa was a farmer for many years, but in order to assure that the kids got to go to school, he moved the family to Houston. He owned a store but had to sell it when he became ill. At one time he worked for the city Health Department. During the depression he and my Dad (Henry Glen) worked for the city and planted the oak trees that line Main Street in the area of Herman Park and Rice University. Finally Pop went to work for the railroad at the crossing on Canal Street. He had that job until he retired.
