Honoring Texas History


Battle of San Jacinto
Little did we know, but the Fraley family had three ancestors who fought at the Battle of San Jacinto. Monday, the Historical Group in Madisonville honored those men from Madison County who fought by holding a ceremony at the courthouse. Our Clayton answered roll call for those three men. Because we had several ancestors who fought, the State Flag that was flown over the State Capital was flown in Clayton's name. Too Cool!!!!! He will be recieving the flag in the coming weeks.
