These past few days I have been enjoying the book A Brief History of the Lower Rio Grande Valley and coming across a lot of familiar names from my genealogy research.
What is also so interesting to me is that the author Frank Cushman Pierce was an avid genealogist who collected a great deal of information pertaining to Mier, Camargo, and Reynosa.
I have personally used some of the collections that he collected and are now under the care of the Brownsville Historical Association.
As I was saying, lately I have been more and more interested in reading about Northeastern Mexico and South Texas. I want to get a glimpse as to the political and way of life that our ancestors may have experienced in this region.
This book provides a glimpse into that past. Specially if you have ancestors that lived in the border region anywhere from Matamoros to Laredo. For us genealogists, it provides a great many deal of stories connected to names that you may be researching.
