The Judge Nathaniel Hart Davis chapter The Daughters of the Republic of Texas received a  Texas history lecture when historian, Kameron Searle, spoke to their chapter during a recent meeting.    Members of the chapter who are descendants of early settlers of Lake Creek and the town of Montgomery posed for a photo with Searle, who has researched the Lake Creek Settlement and Montgomery  for over ten years. 
 
A Houston attorney, Kameron Searle is President of the Texas Heritage Society and a member of the San Jacinto Chapter of the Sons of the Republic of Texas.  He gave a very informative account of the History of the Lake Creek Settlement and the founding of the town of Montgomery in July 1837.

 

Pictured are descendants of early families who settled in Lake Creek and in Montgomery during the early years when the town of Montgomery was founded.  For more information on the early history of the Lake Creek Settlement and the Town of Montgomery, view the web site at http://texashistorypage.com/Lake_Creek_Settlement.html .
