Thank you Susan! That was a good article. Straightforward and concise.

I've always wondered about river travel given that most run north - south. Have also wondered how wagons might fit through some of the more dense forests in the south. And... I've wondered why some of my ancestors stopped in East Texas and others went on to Milam County.

Best guess for East Texas is that the area reminded them of home with lots of pine and red dirt. Or maybe scouts pointed out that there were still plenty of Indians west of the Trinity River.
