First families of Limestone County honored

By Roxanne McKnight
Staff Writer
The culmination of a program of the Limestone County Historical Commission to identify and honor descendants of Limestone County’s first families took place at commissioners court Monday, April 11.
Twenty-three descendants of 41 people who lived in Limestone County at some time in its first 50 years of existence, 1846-1896, were issued certificates from the Historical Commission in recognition of their ancestors’ early influence in the county.
Linda Jordan, vice president of the Historical Commission, conducted the ceremony and reminded the court that Limestone County was established April 11, 1946 – exactly 170 years to the day before Monday’s meeting – by Texas Governor James Pinckney Henderson.
Each person receiving the certificate had submitted information proving that their ancestor had lived in Limestone County prior to 1896 and that they are a descendant of that early settler.

Pre-K: Not What You’d Expect

As Guyanne Mathis walks backwards down the H.O. Whitehurst hallway, she is facing 18 3-year-olds and utilizing every moment – including this transition time in the hallway – to teach. Grasping a rope handle, the students listen as Mrs. Mathis questions, “Pink, boys and girls - do you see anything pink?” The students point out various items around them that are pink. “And pink starts with what letter?” In chorus they respond, “P.” The teacher continues, “What else makes the ‘P’ sound?” It is immediately obvious that Pre-K, even with the youngest GISD students, is all about learning.
