Early Days In Cooke, Texas: 1848-1873


Covering pioneer life from 1848 through 1873 in Cooke County, Texas, Early Days is insightful, touching and jammed with eyebrow-raising tales. With everything from Indian battles to the Chisum Cattle Trail, family histories, wills, and the day Mr. Menasco was killed, this publication affords an intimate look at the people, events, and history that built the county. With over 200 surnames referenced, this "down-home," whimsical work is must reading for Cooke County researchers and historians.
