Hello,
Col Kirby purchased a portion of this property which became the home of Prairie View University from my 3rd great grandfather James Bell. I am currently writing my 8th book and have been doing a lot of work on Austin and Waller Counties during the Civil War years. Col Kirby was prominent in the organization of the troops within the County. I have uncovered a lot about him. He came from Georgia in 1809...the name Jared Ellison is like that of Jared Ellison Groce so now wonder if they were not kin to each other.
