Biography
-James Monroe was President of the US when he was born, then Andrew Jackson when they went to TX.
-From the General Land office, Texas, they state he had three land grants: Fannin county D-1659; Bowie county B-60; Red River county I-196.
-He stood 5'10", dark eyes and skin, with black hair. His children, grandchildren and friends affectionately called him, "Pappy." His granddaighter Mrs. Westbrook says that he bragged about his Spanish ancestry.
-1834 moved to TX, which was a foreign country at the time, and they had to pledge their allegiance to TX when they came there before they could be issued land there. It was also necessary to pledge allegiance to the Catholic church before they could be married there, even if it was only words in order to get the marriage legally done. The church was aware of this.
-1836 joined the TX Army (Red River Blues). He lost a horse and later had to appear and state that he did not know what happened to the horse.
