Are you a Descendant of a Signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence?

The Star of the Republic Museum Wants You

At the celebration of Texas Independence on March 2, 2010 at Washington-on-the-Brazos, it was announced that the Star of the Republic Museum is searching for the descendants of the 59 signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence.

The announcement reads: "The Star of the Republic Museum is launching a long-term genealogical project to identify living descendants of the 50 men who signed the Texas Declaration of Independence here at Washington on the Brazos in 1836. Descendants will be recognized in March 2011 in commemoration of the 175th Anniversary of the signing of the Texas Declaration."

The Star of the Republic Museum needs your ancestor's name, your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address. For more information contact:
