We are related to Issac and Jesse Dyson. It is to my understanding that they acquired 4,428 acers in Callahan county through land grants. They also acquired 640 acers in Harrision county, and 177 acers in live oak. I understand that this occured on July 23,1861. They were killed however shortly thereafter by indians or Mexicans. In 1981 we made an attempt to find out more information about this subject. We recieved a few letters from a man named Al Dyson who claimed to be working on getting the land back. I also understand that the land is one of the richest oil bearing areas of the United States. If anyone has any information that could help me finding out more about this land situation it would greatly appreciated.
