Papa wanted me to read the book so we could discuss it.

Sheriff Means kept Chepita chained to the wall under a lean to shed at the back of the courthouse during the duration of the trail and her execution.

Hi Mimi I just want to write to tell you how much I appreciate and enjoy your articles on the Somos Primos publication. Thank You for creating such a fantastic forum/site for all of us who really and truly care. It is a great site and probably needs imput or other connections that your readers might have. P Esparza [email protected] The article about Miguel de Gracia, the slave, made me sad. I look forward to the future articles about slaves. When the Welder ranch hands pulled the gunnysack out of the Aransas River, they found John Savages body stuffed in the gunnysack. When the sheriff, William Means went to interview Chepita, he found blood on the front porch of Chepitas hut.
Aragon [email protected], I came across your site by pure luck today. There are thousands of Hispanic people that came from Texas so we may find connections to others. I have attached for you an article/blog on some research that has been done on the Santanderos Dora saw a gunnysack in the river with an arm protruding.
Roland Nunez Salazar [email protected], Texas YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB! Means felt he had enough evidence to arrest Chepita and her retarded handy man Juan Silvera on suspicion of murder since he found Savages body close to the hut and the blood on the front porch.
I am so impressed each time I access it, and can hardly wait for the next month's issue. Some days later, Dora Welder and two slaves went to the river to wash clothes.
[email protected] Mimi, You are doing a great job with this important monthly Hispanic issue and site.
