Wanting information from all descendants of colonists from Fisher and Miller's Colony, including Coke, Tom Green, Runnels, Concho, McCulloch, San Saba, Mason, Schleicher, Irion, Kimble, Menard, and Sutton counties. These are the counties that were actually within the grant and contain lands distributed to the colonists. I have indexes of Contracts (papers signed in Germany to join the Society), Transfers (papers to sign over half of the colonist's land to the Society and Fisher and Miller), and am now compiling a list of people that actually received land within the colony. Other related counties should include Comal, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, Bexar, and many southeast Texas counties.

Looking for following information on the HILL family, several are buried in Sonnora. They are ancesters of mine through my grandmother. I have visited the cemetery several times while there on business. I am very interested in any information that may be available, such as: ancesters, decendents, any living relatives, history of their life in Sutton County and several other facts. I will be willing to share the information that I have with any one who may desire it. Thanks very much.
