From: Sulphur Springs Area Retired School Personnel
Please join us on Tuesday, March 13! Keep reading for the time, location of the meeting!
Our next meeting will feature a program by Paula Altenbaumer, presenting the story of an early Texas pioneer, Sarah Ashby McClure Braches. Sarah came to Texas in 1831 as part of the DeWitt Colony. Her home still stands in Gonzales County.
Sarah was a leader of the “Runaway Scrape” during the Texas revolution. An oak tree known as the Sam Houston Oak still stands near her home. Many interesting facets of Sarah’s life (1811-1894) will come to life when Paula appears in costume for our meeting.
Paula also relates that a Hallmark miniseries was filmed about this early pioneer, her family, and her descendants. Please join us for an extremely informative program!
