Each have fantastic Appendices
Also, there is a lot of documentation about Blacks and Indians transplanting between the US and Mexico long before there was a Texas. It is told in Mexico that Sequoya is buried at Mount Clover (today Monclava) Coahuila. My Tslagi great grandmother was a daughter of Richard Taylor who moved back and forth across the Rio Bravo (with permission to do so). My great grandfather James E. Overton from Tennessee married Blinda Taylor when they lived south of the Colorado River and Austin Colony. She is buried in the Williamson Creek Cemetery in South Austin, Texas.
