Hello and welcome to Historical Bytes.  I am Shannon Gillette and I am a freelance writer who happens to be passionate about history.  In 2009 we moved home to Montague County and are thrilled to be able to live on the farm that has been in my family since the late 1800s.  Adjusting to country life has been anything but dull.  I am a volunteer at the Tales N Trails Museum in Nocona, TX where I have the opportunity to delve into Montague County’s history on a daily  basis.

  1. What a fun job…i love that little piece of heaven we call montaque county!

  2. I’m so hapy to find your blog. I’m the secretary of the Forestburg Historical Society. Perhaps you can attend one of our meetings. We meet on the 4th Tuesday each month at 7 pm in the old bank building. We’re not having a meeting in December.

    • Nancy, I, too, am thrilled you found this blog. It is in its beginning stages, but I am happy with it so far. The next post will be about Levi Perryman. I would love to attend a Forestburg Historical Society meeting. Marking the January mtg on my calendar.

  3. I just found out today that my Great Great Grandparents lived at Fostburg Texax. They are also at the Cememtry they. How and where could I find out about them. The names were North and Susan Mary Morgan. Enjoyed your pages here. Lots!

  4. Entertaining, enlightening body of work, so glad to have found it. Thank you for making these materials available.

  5. I was excited to find your blog while looking for information about the house I recently purchased in Saint Jo. I enjoyed reading this historical information about the funeral home as well because I actually work there. I don’t know how updated you intended to keep the information so I thought it would be prudent to share with you the changes that have occurred this year. Mr. McCoy retired and sold the funeral home to Les Scott, who is no relation to the original Scott family. Mr. McCoy died on October 25, 2014. Thank you for sharing your research
