I love this area of Northwestern Grayson County! It is special and has been and is the home of many great people. I myself have had relatives here for over 150 years. I grew up in the rural area northwest of Pottsboro and had a desire to showcase this area's great history, which seems to have been a bit neglected by those concentrating on larger towns. No one else was doing it, so I started a Facebook page called "Pottsboro Texas Genealogy - Old Times Remembered", in which I tried to begin to preserve this area's history, pictures and memories. From this, I received attention that evolved into my having a column in the Pottsboro Sun newspaper called the "Pottsboro Pioneer" in which I attempt to preserve some of this area's history in print before it is all lost. I have now written several Pottsboro, northwestern Grayson County and Lake Texoma history related books to do the same thing. People ask why I started doing these books. I know how much rich history is here and want all these people to be remembered, so I thought, if no one else will do it, I will. I am still writing with no end in sight. All pioneers were exceptional people to be able to travel here in the first place, so the people of Texas had interesting lives and we Texans know that because we know what it took to get here and survive once they got here. We are proud of them and of our state. Because of them, we have what we have, and we are what we are, so we honor them! I am, God willing, intending to write many Pottsboro history related books, since we have such a rich heritage here, and I am sure I will only scratch the surface. My Facebook page called "Pottsboro Texas Genealogy - Old Times Remembered", which you are all invited to "Like". Please add your comments, pictures and memories.
