Descendants of the Signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence Luncheon - March 1, 2014

On Saturday March 1, 2014 at Washington-on-the Brazos, the Descendants of the Signers will remember the contributions of their ancestors who signed the Texas Declaration of Independence from Mexico there in 1836. If you are a descendant of a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence and you would like to attend the luncheon, you will need to register at or call 936-878-2461.

Join other descendants for fun and festivities on Saturday, March 1, 2014, at the Conference Center at Washington-on-the-Brazos! Fellow descendants have planned a barbeque plate luncheon catered by Mallett Bros. of Navasota. Texas historian, Michael R. Moore, former Director of the Fort Bend County Museum Association and recipient of the “Nancy Hanks Award for Professional Excellence” from the American Alliance of Museums, will speak about the printing of the Texas Declaration of Independence and other documents of March 1836.

Descendant souvenirs will be available for sale at the Park’s Conference Center, at the Museum, and online. Everitt descendant, Ron Smith, will discuss how to share lineage information at future luncheons.

If you plan to stay overnight, a block of rooms has been reserved at the Comfort Inn in Navasota. A “Meet and Greet” is planned from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the hotel breakfast area on Saturday morning prior to the luncheon.
