    RE: Land Record

    Thank you for your interest in the records of the GLO.

    After looking at the two files you inquired about, I found that they are both invalid/forfeited files. The contents of MIL-P-4263 (scanned) was transferred to SCH-2542. In School file #2542, W.T. Tune applied to purchase 160 acres (the Northeast ¼ of section 66, block H.T.&B.) in Brown County in 1880. On June 7, 1883 W.T. Tune transferred (sold) this claim to W.T. White for $100. A survey was made on July 24, 1884 in which it was determined that this area actually contained 148 acres and the file is marked “forfeited for non-payment of interest” on January 9, 1897.

    After this claim was forfeited in 1897, it reverted back to being state land and was later purchased by an R. E. Hewgley in School File #48244. This land was patented to R.E. Hewgley June 17, 1954. Our records end with the issuance of the patent, and anything that happened to this land after the patent date will be filed at the county level.

    W.T. Tune initiated the purchase process by putting in his application to purchase. Much like a current land purchase, he was then required to make annual payments on the principal and interest until the purchase was paid off. After the land was “paid in full,” the purchaser could apply to have a patent issued. Tune made two separate payments of $16 each before transferring his claim to W.T. White in 1883. It does look like the reference you found in the deed record is referring to the same land (section 66).

    You can find the location of this survey on our GIS Map (http://gisweb.glo.texas.gov/glomap/index.html)
    To search for this specific survey, click the magnifying glass at the top-center of the page, then click “County & Abstract Search.” In the search box, select Brown County and enter 1982 in the Abstract number field then click “search.” The search results will show information for the R.E. Hewgley file, since he was the final patentee on the land in question.

    We do offer copies of our records at the rate of $1/page for black and white and $2/page for color copies. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, or if you would like to purchase copies of any of the records in the files related to W.T. Tune.

    Pecan Creek Bayou (Callahan County)
    PECAN BAYOU (Callahan County). Pecan Bayou, one of the five major tributaries of the Colorado River of Texas, is aptly named, for it is a slow-moving stream fed by over twenty creeks. Many area residents believe it is the westernmost bayou in the United States. Pecan Bayou has two main branches. The North Prong headwaters originate on the Callahan Divide in northwestern Callahan County and eastern Taylor County near Eula (at 32°22' N, 99°34' W), twelve miles north of the South Prong's head (at 32°15' N, 99°41' W). The North Prong moves southeast through Callahan County and is dammed six miles south of Clyde to form Lake Clyde. Fed by three small creeks, the two prongs merge in south central Callahan County (at 32°13' N, 99°26' W) and cross the Coleman county line. Four more creeks feed it in Coleman County, and the bayou has fourteen additional small tributaries in Brown and Mills counties. A dam on Pecan Bayou seven miles north of Brownwood forms Lake Brownwood. Below the lake the stream runs just east of the city and enters the Colorado River in Mills County (at 31°25' N, 98°43' W) ninety miles southeast of its headwaters.
    Pecan Bayou supported several kinds of plant and animal life that attracted human settlement. Indians, especially the Tonkawas and Comanches, gathered the nuts for which the stream was named as well as red cactus fruit, wild plums, and acorns. The creeks were also known for their abundant fish and mussels. Pecan Bayou was a fabled fishing stream during the frontier era and received favorable comment from travelers and soldiers for its beauty, varied flora and fauna, sweetness of drinking water, presumed richness of soil, and abundant pecan and oak timber.
    The Pecan Bayou region was traversed by many military expeditions and explorations before the Civil War, including those of Robert S. Neighbors in 1849, R. B. Marcy in 1851, and A. S. Johnston in 1855-56. Gen. W. G. Belknap recommended establishment of a military post in the Pecan Bayou region in 1851 and planned an expedition to begin this work, but his proposal was not fulfilled.
    The shallow waterways that run into Pecan Bayou retain many of their natural characteristics, in part because the area that the stream drains is not densely populated.

    Brown County History
    "In 1860 the United States census found 244 people living in the county, none of them slaveholders. The census also counted 2,070 cattle in the area, and ninety-one acres of land was classified as "improved." The county developed slowly between its founding and the 1870s, primarily because conditions were not secure for settlement until the late 1870s or early 1880s, as settlers were harassed by Indians and white predators for twenty years after the county was formed. The original settlers had to resist Comanches who entered the region from the north at Mercer's Gap or from the west along Pecan Bayou, near Elkins. White desperados caused problems too; in 1875 the Fort Worth-Brownwood stage was robbed five times in two months. Much of the criminal activity during the 1870s was attributed to John Wesley Hardin's gang; in 1874 Brown County citizens were among those who lynched suspected gang members at Comanche, and Hardin himself was forced to flee.

    Though increasing numbers of farmers moved into the area in the 1870s, 1880s, and 1890s, the county's economy was dominated by cattle ranching throughout most of the nineteenth century. The number of cattle in the county rose from 2,070 in 1860 to 40,000 in 1880 and remained at about the same level until 1900. County ranchers joined the main cattle trail to Abilene and Dodge City in north Coleman County and fought with local farmers attempting to fence off their lands. Strife between ranchers and farmers over the fencing of open range raged for several years until 1886, when the Texas Rangersqv killed two fence cutters (see FENCE CUTTING). Meanwhile, the number of farms in the area increased steadily, rising from only twenty-two in 1870 to 1,206 in 1880 and 1,396 in 1890."

    Did not see this tombstone
    Tune, Lora A 7 Jul 1907 2 Mar 1908 dau of TR & Beula Tune

    I was hopeful that the grave spacing would give some indication of where Wiley and Martha Tune might be buried.

    This is what I think, but just looking at the graves did not give much insight.

    There is a Wolf family buried on the next row, the one which Warene & Will Tune were on.
    On that row there was one very small homemade and totally unreadable stone, and one stone which looked like a footstone with only D. B. on it.
    Those two stones were near Will and Warene, but I associated them with the Wolf family.

    There is one empty space between Joseph and J. R. Tune.
    I suspect that is where Tune, Lora A 7 Jul 1907 2 Mar 1908 dau of T.R. & Beula Tune is buried.
    There is definitely a burial, very probably 2 burials, south of and next to J. R. & Luina Tune,
    but I think it is Will and Warene, even though their stone is on the next row. The indentions in the soil are still faintly visible, and appear connected to their stone.

    Indentions in the soil are not noticeable in any of the other burials.

    If I am wrong then this could be Wiley & Martha, all I can say with 100 % confidence is that there is no doubt there are burials there.

    There is plenty of empty space where they could be buried, but no evidence of graves other than what I mentioned next to J. R.

    The two Tune children's stones are marble and weathered, readable with slight difficulty. The other Tune stones look very good.

    The Tune plot started next to the road with J. C. Tune ends with J. R. & Luina Tune.

    The Wolf family row was next, at the end of which were the two unidentified stones, then Will & Warene Tune.
    There were no other markers or fieldstones. After the two rows where the Tunes are buried, there is a large space of at least ten yards or more where there are no graves.

    I thought about this all the way home, all night, and woke up with this in mind.

    If Will and Warene were using the plot next to J. R., why did they not put their stone there. Their stone is on the next row.
    There is no proof, or evidence, but it is my belief that the plot next to Will and Warene, based on the soil indentions, is occupied. My gut feeling is that maybe Wiley & Martha are buried there next to J. R.
