Wow! I came back from roughing it on a camping trip w/ friends to the Nueces River (north of Uvalde) and ran accross this great website. It has photos of original muster rolls from the Texas Revolution, where you can easily access them and view the rolls in living parchment color. What a treat for the Texas historian in us all. Enjoy mi compadres. ;D

You're certainly welcome TRK. It's especially helpful for a first-hand look at some of those odd or misinterpreted names that always pop up on old muster rolls. You can find original muster rolls on the great republic claims website, but they're harder to locate, access and they're in black and white.

Piloncillos? What is going on, did I miss something? I found the link to be very exciting... but I have to admit that a visitor came through the park a year or so back and gave me a disk with what appears to be the same lists on it as are on the website. Yeah, that's how I roll... ;D

Mustang, you act like piloncillos is a dirty word instead of a Mexican brown sugar treat. I also found the website exciting. I thought others might consider it a pertinent link and useful in their research. Maybe I was wrong. Not everyone can get hooked up in a park with history disks from a mysterious stranger. I hope there's no encrypted military secrets in them thar disks.
