I read in the tourist book about Texas that the town of Childress was named after George Childress, writer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. Was there a reason other than that he was famous when it was named? Did he ever live there? I have heard that he married a Robertson lady and I want to check to see if she was related to my family.
