Especially Texan: Emma Daugherty Banister

#1

Post by joe817 » Fri Feb 08, 2019 12:08 am

As many of you know, I did a daily "This Day In Texas History" piece a few years ago. I've been wanting to do something to continue exploring the rich history of Texas that I love and enjoy.

Here is but one of the fascinating articles I receive daily. I thought I would share:

""Emma Daugherty Banister, wife of Texas Ranger John R. Banister, made her mark on Texas history as the first woman sheriff in the Lone Star State. Discover more about her life in the entry below."

Emma Susan Daugherty Banister, probably the first woman sheriff in Texas, daughter of Bailey and Martha Ann (Taylor) Daugherty, was born in Forney, Texas, on October 20, 1871. Her father, who had come to the area from Alabama before the Civil War, was murdered in 1878. After her mother remarried, Emma stayed with her family for two or three years, then went to live with the family of her uncle, Lou Daugherty, in Goldthwaite. There she completed her formal education and studied to become a teacher. She taught in Turkey Creek, Mills County, and at Needmore (now Echo), on Jim Ned Creek in Coleman County. There she boarded in the home of the Sam Golson family."

I always enjoy reading them. Plus it allows those not fortunate enough to have been born here, a good sense of what makes Texas, and Texans unique.
Looking forward to them.

I just read this linked story to my wife, and she loved it. And let me join the others Joe in saying that I’d like it if you continued.

I did not go to Texas Schools while growing up, I love Texan History and enjoy picking up the little bits of information and understanding.

Like Liberty I did not grow up going to Texas schools. As my username indicates, I learned plenty of Tennessee history as a kid. Between the two "T" states, there are a great many historical linkages that formed long-lasting bonds between the two, so I'd really only learned a bit of Texas history from that perspective.

Within a year of moving from East Tennessee to Texas in 1993, I devoured James Michener's Texas as a way of getting my first taste of my new home state's heritage. Yeah, I know it's just historical fiction, but it does give a not-yet-Texan an opportunity to soak up some of the culture - and if that left-wing rag Texas Monthly hated it, it is on my must-read list.

Since then, I've learned a lot more of Texas history, but I really do enjoy tidbits like you post on here, Joe. Please keep it up!
