Excerpt from History and Reminiscences of Denton County

In writing the history of Denton County and her pioneers, the task was found hard because of the fragmentary nature of her written history, and, on account of having to harmonize the discrepancies in her traditional history as related by the re maining pioneers.

All of the early public records of the county. Were destroyed Christmas week, 1875, when the courthouse burned.

Much of the county''s traditionary history hasbeen consigned with her pioneers to the grave. The gathering and collecting of facts and the elimination of fiction have had our most careful at tention. But where so many con?icts in statements existed, some errors reasonably may be expected. And when writing of Den? Ton County we'' must begin with it in its unorganized form as the western frontier of Fannin County; and share and share alike with all the counties carved out of this common territory, we must begin with its first settlement. The North American In dian claimed it as his hunting grounds; the Republic of Texas claimed it as her public domain, and through her agents, the Peters Colony, was making title, and a con?ict at birth was on.
