Richard Mycue, an architect by trade, said, on 9/26/97:
I am willing to do "looks-ups" and/or discuss, within the limits of my familiarity with the subject, information regarding Seguin/Guadalupe County, as time permits.
resources I will share are:
Blumberg, C. F. II, "Blumberg Klan Book", 1938. This private publication traces the descendants of Carl F. and Catherine R. Blumberg from 1845 to 1938 and includes a brief history of the family. Additionally available is the diary related to the family's travel to Texas and correspondance of C.F. Blumberg.
Weinert, W. M., Numerous articles and histories related to Seguin, the fire department, Methodist Church, historical personages...varied dates
And miscellaneous materials such as...
Thompson, Mildred. "History of the Staples Community from 1852-1856 for Use in Social Studies in Elementary Grades", M.A. Thesis, Southwest Texas State Teachers College, 1960. (Now Southwest Texas State University, San Marcos, Texas).
Copies of theses are best obtained from the student; they are glad to get rid of the extras and happy somebody cares. Failing that, try writing the chairman/person of the appropriate department at that university and asking how/where you can get one.

J. Tracy Walker, III of Charlottesville, VA, volunteers:
I have "The History of The McClaugherty Family" by James D. McClaugherty. To my knowledge, all of the McClaughertys in the US descend from James McClaugherty (born in Scotland, married in Ireland, died in Giles County, VA 13 May 1813). A grandson of James D., also named James, born 12 Mar 1812, graduated in law from Virginia Military Institute and migrated to Seguin, TX 1850-1852. He became the Sheriff, Tax Assessor, and Tax Collector of Guadalupe County the Summer after his arrival and served until 1862.
this book is unindexed and slightly out of order, I will be glad to do "lookups"
as time permits.
