“A Tiny History of Hurnville” — most of this information comes from a written manuscript left in family papers, dated 1959, and written by my grandfather, Frank Hurn.
“A Tiny History of Henrietta, Texas” — Aside from personal memories, the bulk of historical fact was, in proper scholarly fashion, stolen from the Handbook of Texas Online website. The historical summary there was written by Lisa C. Maxwell, who cites the Katherine Douthitt book “Romance and Dim Trails,” (1938), the St. Clair book “Little Towns of Texas,” (1982), and the William Taylor book “A History of Clay County,” (1972). Much additional information can be found in my Uncle Eugene Hurn’s book “A Pictoral History of Clay County,” which can be found in the Henrietta library, or through the Henrietta/Clay County Historical Society.
Law 23 regarding Being, Doing, and Having. I first encountered the interesting concepts of Be – Do – Have in the writings of L.
