One of the more astounding facts about my family history is the number of ancestors who were citizens of the Republic of Texas: 23 proven, 2 present before independence, and 2 unproven. For a country that only existed for 10 years, 27 seems like quite a large number! This is all the more surprising when it all comes from only one side of my family tree.
The flag shown was the first official flag of the Republic of Texas before the current flag was adopted in 1839.
For the 25 proven ancestors, I have submitted supplemental applications to the Sons of the Republic of Texas all of which have been approved. The SRT supplemental membership certificates can be viewed here.
